Thanks for Participating!

Alas, all good things must come to an end. Thanks to all of the wonderful moms who participated in the BlogJolt over the 10 months we spent together. Feel free to visit the great mom blogs below!

BlogJolt XXVIII - Darlene’s Mom-Defrazzler Blog

Mom DefrazzlerThis week’s BlogJolt is the “Mom-Defrazzler” blog: all about making life easier for moms, baby-step by baby-step. Each month we tackle a single area of life for moms and walk through it together.

This month there is a new and different project. Darlene is conducting a one-month challenge to all moms to make a difference in the lives of mothers in third-world, poverty and AIDS-stricken countries. She has something for every time and financial constraint (less than one minute, and $0 up to long-term financial and time commitments).

Busy Mama's GuidesThis weeks BlogJolt is Kristy Shreve Powers, Home of the Busy Mama’s Guides.

Kristy has the answers:

What busy mama has half an hour to read up on an interest of hers or find an answer to a question about diapering her baby? Not one that I know. Busy Mama’s Guides are a series of (short) articles that can be read before the baby eats another CD, on subjects like health, food, baby, simplicity, relationships, holiday activities, and more.

Welcome to our 20th BlogJolt! As a celebration for this milestone, let’s shoot for 30 links to Maricar’s blog, Keeping the Castle. With 30 links under our belt, we can get back to two weekly joltees!

Keeping the CastleIn Maricar’s words, Keeping the Castle is… “In a nutshell, the blog is about housekeeping and homemaking. I enjoy finding articles and resources that will make the homemaker’s life easier, more relaxed and even more fun. I write about tips on cooking, cleaning, organizing, home decor and everything else in between. I also throw in product and book reviews once in a while. I’m no expert homemaker; I’ve learned a lot while writing this blog. I hope you’ll join me “where everyone’s at home”.”
