Momma’s Out There

Yes, I am! Totally!

I’m currently refreshing my skills by taking part in blogging101 again and it has been fun so far. Yesterday was all about blogging events which I find pretty cool. Today it’s about branding. This word has always slightly scared me as I thought branding would be too much for my blog.

I do understand that my blog is kind of like a brand. But then it doesn’t feel like it to me. Anyway. Reading through the pointers I had to admit that my blog ticks a couple of those boxes and it happened just like that.

I just figured before I let you know where I am at, I tell you a little bit more about a little (blog) event I’m currently running. In a way it’s not really a blog event, as it’s not really happening on my blog. But it’s related to my blog. So everyone can sign up if you are interested:

Do you crave some extra inspiration and motivation in your life at the moment? Sign up for “Momma’s 21 Days Of Inspiration” to receive a daily email with an inspiring thought starting August 17th.

To sign up simply send an email to with the subject line “Momma’s 21 Days Of Inspiration”.

Yep, it has started last Monday but you can still sign up. And you will get all 21 of my messages still.

So back to the branding and being out there: Did you know that you can find me on Facebook as well? Scroll down and find the direct link to it in my sidebar. Or to make it simple just head over here: and I’m on Twitter too!

Wow! After I got nominated for “One Lovely Blog Award” and “Liebster Award” a couple of days ago, I am thrilled to let you know that five more bloggers nominated me for those awards (4 for the “Lovely Blog Award” and one for the “Liebster Award”). I know this sounds a bit weird, but I really really hope I did not forget anybody. Otherwise please send me a big shout out!

My Picks Of The Week #40

Tidlidim’s post is all about standing up for yourself and what you believe in. No matter the consequences. Just a great post and I hope you will check out Loony’s Biz other posts as well. Sure worth while… He is a pastor and a dad and he nails it in his post. John Pavlovitz has a great way to explain that we should support our kids no matter what. Shame some other people don’t. Check out some of the comments if you want to… I guess all of moms ask ourselves this question at least once. Are we good enough? Tryingsohardtobegood describes it very well in her blog post. Can cheating be excused? Read what The Mad Musings Of Scruples McGee thinks about this issue. And I think all moms can relate with All the sunny mummy days when she describes the random things you face during pregnancy. This is a blog I really enjoy discovering. I like how Flooding August writes and what she is telling us. Still discovering myself. So maybe you like to have a go to. Maybe some of us have been there too… I love following Sincerely, Jess story. Why wouldn’t you watch football? Adoptingjames gives you a couple of reasons. Why would you stay in a violent relationship? Stories from the belly gives you an insight about the why. And to end this on a lighter note: This is a blog which makes me feel good every time I stop by. Send Sunshine has some nice and short tips on how to make you feel better.

Thank you all for inspiring me this week. For telling your story and for making me smile or feel better. Keep it up 🙂

My Picks Of The Week #39

I thought I will make it into a habit to mention a couple of blogs I especially liked at the end of every week. But it is not easy! So many great blogs or posts I’ve read this week. There are so many out there! I remember someone (don’t remember who) saying that he/she doesn’t appreciate “ghost followers”, followers who follow you but never comment or never really engage with your blog…
