Blogging...It's a Thing We "Do" in My Family

So, I just added a blog list to my page.  There are three.  I don't really follow anyone except my own awesome family members.  I read the occasional blog here and there, but I don't follow any of them except for my sister's and my nieces' blogs.  They are overall amazing people who I am proud to call my family.

My sister's blog is about the journey of keeping weight off.  In case you didn't know, my sister is a minor celebrity.  She has appeared on Oprah, CNN, The Today Show, twice, (recently as a member of the Joy Fit Club, although I don't know how she could stand Kathie Lee and Hoda - blech [sorry sis!]), and in print in People Magazine's yearly edition of people who have lost a whole person or more.  As of now, she has a book proposal being shopped around by her literary agent.  She is an inspiration for thousands of people, including yours truly.  And she's MY sister - woot!

My nieces started a blog called "Sisters from Different Misters" not only because that title is hilarious, but also because it's true.  Basically, their blog is a random musing of living life in their 20s, but from very different perspectives.  Carly, the eldest, is completing her M.A. degree in history and dating (from what I hear) a nice guy, while Cassie, the youngest, is married, has two adorable children, and is a nurse.  They are fantastic young women.

My oldest brother and sister wrote and self-published books already, so I figured I better jump into this writing party.  We all have a way with words.  This blog my be uneven at times, but I'll find my footing and my voice as I move forward.

For now, read some of my family's blogs.  I have to go preach the good word of the High Renaissance today.


  1. Yah, we kind of rock, huh? Go us, go us!

  2. Yay, you've finally joined us in the world of blogging! I love the page!

  3. Hahah! I read that as "Carly, the eldest, is completing her M.A. degree in history and dating."

    I WISH dating was taught in school... The dating-inept (read: me) would appreciate it :D
