What else can I say but fantastic...fantastic...fantastic! I like this blog for two is simply I think that the writing goes right to the heart with a clear feeling for the bloggers world which is an important part of blogging. When you enjoy blogging, it shows. You can feel the bloggers joy and that is so strong with this blog. Second is because of the autistic angle. My wife teaches autistic children and we both have a soft spot in our hearts for people with autism. In fact, this afternoon we spent the day at a baseball game to raise autism awareness.
Great job with the blog and keep up the good work....loved it and will be a regular visitor back myself.


So I have something I have to admit here. The following is something I used to joke about in a wink wink nudge nudge sort of way when I was critiquing blogs last year. The blogs with the music song that starts automatically when you click on their link. Quite frankly...scares me to death. I listen to music through my computer often and the speakers are up...when I blog I do not listen to music, but my speakers are still up. IN the quiet of the day as I sit and blog away, and as I click on this fantastic blog to review it, I jump off my chair and spill my coffee all over the table as the song unexpectedly blasts my hair back. Yes I know...maybe I should lay off the coffee. Back to the blog.
As I start to read this blog one thing is clear and jumps off of the page at me...the blogger's love of life and her children. This is very refreshing to me to see and read and I think alot of readers will feel the same way as they read the posts of this well written blog. I love the post, Newborn's Conversation With God, a beautiful passage and a good indicator of what this blog is all about. You will get everything from the above link to down home real posts like, Tax Rebates...What You Need To Know. Check it out and enjoy.


Was asked recently to critique the above blog via email and as I looked closer I found that the author is a Philly guy who also has a blog worth mentioning called, Philly Killz, where he has commentary about sports, the body counts in Philly and other general interesting stuff. I would say both are worth mentioning as they are both written in a style that flows easily for the reader to enjoy and understand. Both blogs are set up very nicely from a monetization standpoint and the design is sharp and effective. Nice job overall and a special shout out for your Philly connection!

Many Moons Ago...

Many moons ago I was dedicated to a project that I started in August of 2006. It morphed into a blog that reviewed and critiqued over 800 blogs. The first blog I critiqued was a blog entitled,
Haphazard Happenstances, back on August 9th 2006. Before writing this entry I clicked onto her blog and found it to be just as refreshing and inviting as it was back when I first critiqued it, even better in fact.
Over the years I've made alot of acquaintances in the blog world, many of whom I have kept in touch with as I continued to blog ( , ), and many whom I have fallen out of contact with. One thing that remains constant is the bloggers undying love for this media outlet. It was this reasoning that I got into blogging to begin with and it was with this reason I began critiquing. Bloggers love what they do, clear and simple. So I decided to click onto my first blog passion and sign on to tap back into my creative side again and start to critique blogs whom ask to be critiqued. The reason I stopped with this project still remains, my work has taken me in a different direction where my time is very limited, so naturally I can not dedicate the time that I used to dedicate to Critique My Blog. I can, however, critique as time allows and get back into the world of discovery that is the blogesphere.
