If My Blogroll Was a Beer, It’d Be Domestic Brew

I tend to read blogs solely written by women, and if you break down the demographic even further, they are mom blog heavy. Being the nerd that I am (I was a print journalism/sociology double major in college), I know that I’d be all over doing a research paper on the demographics of blogging. Any way, one of the cool things about joining the BlogJolt group is that I’m reaching outside my blog familiarity zone a bit.

This week’s featured blogger is Rebecca, who blogs at An Irish Craftworkers Good Life. She is a mom to two little ones who is renovating an old farmhouse with her husband in rural Ireland. I’ve never been to Europe, but I would love to travel to Ireland some day. Rebecca wrote a post this week that I can relate to called the Iron Free Zone. Now I just need a backyard hammock. I’ve already banished our iron. I mean why deny your clothes the right to their God given wrinkles?

p.s. I also want to mention the second BlogJoltee (hey…made up that word) featured this week…Kelly at Blended With Salt. Kelly is a work at home mom who blogs for ClubMom and writes about the challenges of raising a toddler and a teenager in her second marriage. You must check out Kelly’s post from this summer about dealing with her 3-year-old’s tantrums. Not that I can relate or anything.

    If I were a brew I’d probably be a contaminated wine that has downgraded to vinegar! Oh but maybe a balsamic vinegar … old, aged and very sweet!

    Hey Jamie,
    thanks for letting us know about these 2 cool blogs. I’m going to check them out. Pretty soon, my blogroll is going to be longer than my leg.

    It’s amazing how fast the old blogroll can get out of control, I’m so grateful for feed readers!

    Thanks for the jolt!

    Awhile back I was putting some stuff together for a consignment sale and the instructions said to iron EVERYTHING. Being the good-girl, always follow instructions kind of woman that I am, I proceded to iron EVERYTHING! Yes, I’m an idiot! At said consignment sale I noticed many, many items that had not been ironed and I, myself, bought several items even though they had not been ironed.

    Next time? NO IRONING!
