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.

Posts that Make me Go BOOM! {12}

It’s Saturday again.

Wait.  It’s Saturday again?  Really?


I am not a fan of how quickly these weeks are going by.

Anyway, in the blur that was this week,  I did a wee bit of reading (and writing).

Here are the most noteworthy of what I read this week:

First, Tracy of Sellabit Mum wrote I Hold These Truths Only Until They Aren’t True Anymore… dispelling the idea that her life is perfect and lucky just because that is what she chooses to write about.  Not only did I giggle a lot, but I appreciated the fact that she gently reminds us that we can’t judge anyone based on their blog…because we don’t know the rest of the story.

Alison of Mama Wants This! wrote a post asking the simple question “why do you blog” in her post, This Is About Blogging. This is actually something that has been bumping around in my head ever since I wrote about how blogging is not my business a couple months ago.  And I have a draft that I have gone back to no less than a scazillion times about why I have this space.  The conversation in the comments is really heated in some places on this post, but it’s a really timely question for a lot of bloggers, in my opinion.

And lastly this week, I stumbled upon a link to a blog called AndersonFamilyZoo’s Blog by a woman by the name of Jen who is healing from cancer and has chemotherapy.  She is currently bald and wearing it proudly.  The post that was shared, Bald on the Run, is one where she asks for specific prayers and mentions that she reads comments during chemo.  How can you not go tell her you’re thinking of her?


Last week I forgot to tell you that I had a post at BNV about bullying: Bullying: Not Just A Lesson For Kids.

Today I have a post up about what I think about my 2-year old using my Nook and Cort’s tablet: Toddlers and Tablets

And I finished a book this week and then wrote about it:  American Salvage by Bonnie Jo Campbell
