Blogging for Bliss

Blogging for Bliss by Tara Frey (Lark/Sterling)

(Erika/Mom) We are proud to be participating in the official book release party for Blogging for Bliss. As the Good Book says (and I’m going to botch this) we are not fit to touch the sandals of the blissful bloggers who are featured in the book and others who are participating. They are amazing creatives who have collectively turned the plain old blogosphere into a Shangri La. But we aren’t ashamed to hang onto their coattails and hopefully learn lots in the process.

Tara Frey is mistress of the camera and a veritable modern-day Jane Austen with her witty prose. Catch her at Typing Out Loud and I dare you to click away without subscribing. She is better than a cup of coffee in the morning. My partner (Eileen Paulin at Daily Courage) and I helped give birth to this book and we’re about as proud as a couple of hens in the rooster house. It’s times like now I wish I grew up in the South and learned all those great sayings. Help me, Paula Dean!

Anyway, many thanks to Kari Ramstrom at Artsy Mama for hosting the party. This sure beats handmade nametags and hovering shyly at the door. As soon as someone figures out virtual champagne I’ll be completely happy. In the meantime…POP! goes the cork. A toast–to the pioneers of pretty, the blissful bloggers who have proven to the world that when you look good, you write good. πŸ™‚

    Happy Blog Party! Love your blog…so fun! I laughed hard at the “coolifying dad” post. My DH could seriously use some of that.

    Blogging for Bliss looks positively incredible…I can’t wait to snatch up my copy! I would just like to thank you now for your work on this project, because I’m 100% positive that I will enjoy it wholeheartedly!

    And, hey, why hasn’t someone figured out that virtual champagne deal? That should definitely be the blogosphere’s next big project! πŸ™‚

    Thank you for being the first to comment on my new blog! My kids thought I was crazy I was so excited! I’ve got a lot to learn before it looks as polished and FAB as yours! First I’ve got to figure out what to do about the header. Yours is so COOL!

    Maybe if we contact Martini & Rossi they could do something about that champagne request! Cheers!
