The Booming Saturday Share

Hey friends!

Another Saturday is upon us, so I am sharing some things with you I found to be awesome this week.

So here we go!

Katherine Stone wrote the piece, Take Your Postpartum Depression Stigma and Shove It, over at her Babble column, Something Fierce. Since I am finding myself back in the trenches with this battle, it hit home.  I, too, see all the misconceptions and ignorant jokes about PPD and women who struggle with it.  I struggle with it and I am not some stereotype

Need new shoes and want to help children?  Check out the post I did about California Footwear Company’s back to school promo: Get 15% off your ENTIRE order & 15% of your total goes to Brittany’s Hope Foundation.

Also don’t forget to check out my friend, Jac’s etsy shop, specifically the new journals she has for pre-order.

Want more of my words? I gathered some tips via facebook and twitter about how to live more green and wrote about it in the article Living Green.  I also slammed my face on my desk shook my head in frustration as I wrote about VP candidate Paul Ryan’s views on education in Ryan Gets a Failing Grade in Education (and I even avoided making a Jake Ryan joke. I win).

That’s all I’ve got.

Other great things have been on the internet this week too, I’ve just been too tired to find them or remember them or put them here.

And I can’t promise that I will keep up the Saturday Boom Diggidy Fest here.

In fact, I might take more days off than just Saturday.

At least until I get my groove here with the fall schedule.

I’ll post ’em when I got ’em, yo.

Oh wait…I have this too…

Imma do work here. Boom.

About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. I’ll miss your Saturday shares. 🙁

  2. I hope you fell well soon. Depression is a liar and fills your head with untrue thoughts. You are a good person, wife and mother. Hold tight these truths. We will all be waiting for you when you are ready to come back.

  3. Nice space! 🙂

  4. Boom!

    Imma gonna hug you now.

  5. Dude! (or should I say “Vato!”) You get a MICROWAVE in your classroom? Muy bueno! Looking forward to more pics as you’re able!

  6. I should note… where I come from (San Francisco Bay Area) the hispanic homies use “vato” in the non-derogatory sense (and half of my fam is Mexican). I just remembered that in some quarters it can be used negatively!

  7. Love your work space and when you share your faves. 🙂
