Blognerd Bash

O'kay, so I am pretty new the world of blogging and I am really still trying to figure it all out. So I decided the best way to do that is to visit as many blogs as I possibly can and learn from the experts.

One way to do this is to participate in blog hops. So starting today I am participating in BlogNerd Bash. A lot of bloggers will be in Chicago this weekend for Blogher. I won't. :-( This is my way of still meeting bloggers.

In September I am hoping to do a huge makeover on this site. I hope it will be fun for everyone so stay tuned.

Part of the Blognerd Bash is to tell a little about yourself, (deep breath), so, here goes.

My name is Amy. I am a SAHM of three girls, Taylor (8), Madelyn (6) and Nadia (3). Everyone is nearing their next birthday so we are starting to gear up for fall parties. I am married to a wonderful man who is my hero, (you can read about it here).

I was a working mom until my youngest was 6 months old. I have a degree in mass communications and have worked in the marketing, customer service and healthcare industries.

I love to write and read. I would love to have more time to craft, (hopefully when my children are a little older). As my youngest starts school I would like to begin freelance work as a writer. I love to sing and lead worship at my home church.

Most importantly, I am a follower of Jesus Christ. He is the most important part of my life. I am on a faith journey that has its ups and downs, but every night I go to sleep in peace, knowing that I believe in a big God that is always with me. I write about my faith journey on my other blog Girlfriends Get Real. In blog world I am the Get Real Girl. Because life isn't easy and way too many people try to pretend that it is. My writing is from my heart, no fluff, it is just me being real.

Visit Amanda to check out this Blog Hop!

And. . .there is another great Blogher at Home Blog Hop. Make sure you check in out here.

hi amy! thanks for stopping by my blog today --- i was born and sorta raised in south dakota - so my curiosity is piqued for where you are. i haven't found many south dakotans in blogworld!

i LOVE the girls' hideout - how many awesome memories will they have from that little spot of heaven! and from your other blog, i have much to say about Fireproof ... i enjoyed a strong marriage before seeing it and doing the 40 day love dare. and now i am beyond blessed with my husband and my marriage. God is truly, truly good.

many blessings to you as you meet lots of new people ;)

Hey there! I'm brand new to the blog world too, and learing my way around still. Your girls are just precious, and I can't wait to check out your other blog. What a great idea! And I admire those that don't add 'fluff' to their blogs. ;)

Hi, Amy! So nice to meet you!! My husband and I have the same kind of ugly beginning as well. Though, our daughter is beautiful, so hard to call it ugly. But sin is ugly. We aren't perfect but God is. That is what is important! Praise God!!

So nice getting to know you!
Hope your week is truly blessed!
