Carnival of Family Life #52

April 30, 2007

The 52nd edition of the Carnival of Family Life is now up at Parenting Toddlers. Please stop by and check out all the great family-related posts that we received this week. Thanks again to Jennifer for doing such a great hosting job!

Next week will be our 1 year anniversary! Can you believe it? If you’ve never joined in before (yes, I’m talking to all my blogging buddies), now’s your chance! Yours truly (thanks to Mike and Csara) will be hosting this anniversary edition here at An Island Life. All you have to do is go to the Blog Carnival site and use their submission form to submit your post. It can be a current one or a treasure from your archive. The only requirement is that it has to be family-related and somewhat PG rated.

We will also be announcing new rules to the participation contest. Hopefully, this will make it easier for everyone to be eligible for the monthly $15 gift certificate. Stay tuned for more details.

As for April, the Outstanding Carnival Member of the Month is Kerri of My Name is Mommy and Play Library. Kerri is a wife, a homeschooling SAHM, and a professional blogger with b5Media. Talk about a busy lady! When you get a chance, stop by to congratulate her!

Ok, now that you’re done reading this, find one of your many great family posts and send it in! It will only take a minute. And who knows, you could meet some really great family bloggers while you’re at it!

And speaking of Carnivals, stop by 5 Minutes for Mom where they currently have a guest blogger discussing carnivals, memes and Mr. Linky. Check out who the guest blogger is! ;-)

Aloha from GP, Patricia Mayo, Groovyoldlady, Jenny, Amy, Kerri, Dana, and Desert Songbird

Happy Anniversary! I read your “guest spot” - well done, friend!

I’m so useless when it comes to participating in carnivals. I’m a serious procrastinator, and I usually get things done just at the wire (you can verify this with my former editor at the magazine!). Also, I usually feel my stuff won’t be appropriate since I no longer have toddlers or babies.

Sounds fun, but it’s been a tough day. I’m too whooped to sift through all my dribble. Maybe tomorrow when Mulletman and Bonehead go to a ballgame…

The Carnival of Family Life sounds like a fantastic endeavor - and I just might be able to share quite a bit of what I write for LoanShak with you. Thank you so much for your comment - and come back in a few days, I plan on writing more on insurance plans if you are still looking for more information.
