Yes, it's been 10 whole months since I first said I'd share the enormous wealth of attention I get from the blogosphere (can't you just smell the BS in that wry?)...
And I promise, it's not that I'm so unimpressed with every other blog out there. I'm not impressed with mine enough to be unimpressed with anyone else's (that's part of the beauty of this whole blogging thing, we're all just winging it out here, except for those Luckies who grabbed some corporate sponsorship along the way...)
No, it's not that I think my blog doesn't stink, it's that I go through weeks and, this time, months where I don't have time to read anyone else's blog.
But by gosh, retweet me and I feel obliged.
And that's how I landed on An Older Version.
Here's her About Me:
"Infertility to parenthood. Budgeting. Decorating. Pets. Marriage. Money. Food. Organizing. Relationships. Thrifting. Pondering. LIFE."
I know. Sigh. Another one. BUT... she's entertaining. And for my first 3 cups of coffee, that's what I like when I have time before commencing the daily grind.
Get past her post du jour -- it DOES have nifty belly pics and details like "My uterus actually moved over my pubic bone weeks before it is even supposed to be possible." -- and get down to where you learn that microwave cleanliness symbolizes deeper issues. Down again and you get some juicy bits on what the Wonder of Pregnancy can do to your corporal existence, the kind of stuff that you should all be telling your daughters instead of the Disney version about making babies.
Older Version's not new to the scene and her blog is hooked up and lauded. So I want you to know that I'm being big here by featuring her blog as if she needs my attention, thereby calling attention to the fact that my blog is none of that. Or something. I just like her style and wanted y'all to know.
And besides that, I have a PILE of review products that I need to be writing about, and now that The Move From The Sticks is accomplished and my heart has stopped racing in a rapid off-kilter way, I think it's high time I get to work.
And I'd rather just browse through An Older Version and stuff like that.
