Spotlight Saturday 2.14 to 2.20.10

Spotlight Saturday

Here are FIVE of my favorite posts from the past week. Each week I will be highlighting some of my favorites. I have many blogs in my reader, as I have many friends with all different types of “niches” or “non-niches”. I will post serious stories, fun stories, pictures, recipes, etc. They will most likely be in a random order.

1.  Violence Unsilenced-Tanis

A post about domestic violence, child abuse, addiction, and adoption.

2.  Hostess with the Mostess-Fairy Sweet Birthday Party

What little girl wouldn’t want a fairy party? This party was all planned by the little girl’s mother.  With decorations, a toadstool cake, fairy wings, and pixie sticks. The photography makes everything pop and so memorable.

3.  Ciaran Blumenfeld-Advocates, Enthusiasts, and Advertising: Bloggers on the Brandwagon

Ciaran talks about bloggers and promoting brands. Did you do a post because you just *liked” the product, was a it a review, or were you paid to post. She outlines the distinctions.

4.  Scary Mommy-ChatRolulette-A Warning to Parents

Jill from Scary Mommy talks about a new website started by a 17-year old in Russia. This site accesses your webcam and projects you face-to-face with the world.  What a perfect place for a pedophile to hide out in.

5.  Coco’s Cuckoo World-Building Self Esteem. One kid at a time

Her kiddos Bram and Tess are always showing off fashion in their house. Courtney is always posting some HILARIOUS photos of them. A great post to make you smile.

Love the favorites from the week. What a great way to pass along blogs! Might have to try this one for my site. (good way for me to remember what I liked too instead of them being stuck in a reader)

Ha! When I first read this I thought it meant that you would highlight your 5 favorite posts... on YOUR blog. So if you were doing it once a week then at the end of the week you would highlight all but one of YOUR OWN posts. LOL! This is a great idea and I can't wait to check em' out!
