Excellent Blogger Award

Excellent Blogger awardI'm so honored! Jackie at Nursing Your Kids has named EditorMom an excellent blog for being "interesting and timely."

I read or skim well over 60 blogs a day—speed-reading, anyone?—and so could list a great many wonderful blogs here, but I'll limit myself to a few, in addition to Nursing Your Kids:

AMERICAblog provides terrific political commentary, sometimes being the first to report a story, and is activist too.

The Carpetbagger Report also has excellent political commentary. It ties with AMERICAblog for my favorite political blog.

FreelanceSwitch is for freelancers in all industries, all around the world. Read it to learn how to attract more clients, earn more money, and balance life and work.

Half of Me chronicles, with a sense of humor, one young woman's amazing weight-loss journey. She's now less than half the size she once was, and she is one of two bloggers who inspired me to begin losing weight.

Joe Wikert's Publishing 2020 Blog keeps readers informed about "print, online, video and all media formats not yet invented." This is the place to learn about coming trends in publishing.

Lively Women has women’s health and wellness information you can actually understand and use.

Publishing Careers provides an online informational interview for college students, new graduates, and career changers interested in knowing what a job in publishing is like and how they can get one.

Redneck Mother will make you laugh and cry in recognition of things all parents go through. "Raising children, lettuce and hell in Texas," RedMo is a smart—and smartass—homeschooling mother and feminist.

The Shape of a Mother allows mothers to share their stories and their photos in the service of teaching people what real women's bodies look like. We moms should be proud of our bodies—they've housed and nurtured new lives!

Thoughts on ADHD and Marriage is a huge help to me, as the sole person in the six-person House of AD/HD who doesn't have the neurobehavioral disorder. Its wise posts help me keep things in perspective. If you have AD/HD or have a life partner who does, you owe it to yourself to subscribe to Thoughts. One of its coauthors is Dr. Ned Hallowell, well known and loved in the AD/HD community because he both has AD/HD and is an expert on it.
