Blog Thanks, I Wanna Be a CBO, and Steve Martin is in My Closet

The always fired up Firecracker Mom gave me a You Make My Day blog award. She says, Jamie is a funny, witty girl. I love reading her blog.”


The fabulous Jennifer at Playgroups Are No Place for Children featured BlondeMomBlog on her sidebar as blog of the week and if I ever get around to it, I’d like to copy her and start a similar feature since I put my blogroll out of its misery many blog moons ago.

This post about dirty little secrets of motherhood was selected as an April Graco Monthly Nod winner by Graco blogger Kim Lefko. This is what Kim had to say, “This was an inspiring story and a great lead on an awesome book. It takes the guilt away knowing there is a little laugh to be had around the things that we do and knowing many other moms are doing the same thing. Excellent!!”


Thanks to Firecracker Mom, Jennifer, and Kim for stroking my blog ego.

Graco is one of several corporate blogs I’ve heard of lately. Here’s an interesting article about the trend, although only about 11 percent of Fortune 500 companies have corporate blogs. But still, I kind of fancy the title Chief Blogging Officer. What about you? Do you work for a company with a corporate blog? I graduated from college in 1991 when e-mail was a novelty and it was a big deal just to get Internet access at work via Netscape. And don’t get me started on the album collection we have in a milk crate in our hall closet. I will never part with my Steve Martin LPs. NEVER!


So what dinosaurs of technology do you have in your closets?

    I don’t know what happened to my albums. I do still have my 45s.

    You haven’t lived until you’ve listened to Kenny Rogers Greatest Hits on the ol’ vinyl!

    I still have an early mp3 player that cost me a fortune and had, brace yourself, 32MB of storage????? Why did I buy it? Because I could put about 8 songs on it, almost enough to go work out with. Oy.

    We also have an impressive collection of Jimmy Buffett AND John Denver albums. Woo hoo!

    At the yard sale last weekend I sold an old Sony “boom box” with a cassette player.

    Congrats Jamie.
    Every word is true, what an honor!! Jennifer is fabulous and she has (obviously) great taste.
    I have a Peter, Paul and Mary LP (If I had a Hammer):-) and a couple of Mama’s and Papa’s LP’s 🙂
    Do those count?

    Congrats on all your blingity bling!

    Heck yeah I still have all my mix tapes from high school and college. Although when I saw one of my college friends a few months ago, he gave me a CD with one of the old tapes on it. Great gift!

    Ryan saved some of my mixed tapes 😉 I used to make some really racy ones that would be on the Disney Channel probably now 🙂
