List #46: Ten Compliments

It's that time again: Monday Listicles here on The Sprog! Stasha's topic for the week was Ten Compliments. I decided to give ten compliments to some of my bloggy buddies. Most of them I'm lucky enough to know in real life, though some I've never actually met in person. The thing they all have in common: I look forward to reading them on the ol' interwebz here.

My list of compliments, in no particular order:
  1. Harriet--Your posts on See Theo Run are always well constructed & I am jealous of all the photos you manage to get of Theo in mid-air.
  2. Melissa--I love how you manage to keep your theme of family cycling fresh & interesting each time.
  3. Erin--I covet your purse. The yellow one, of course.
  4. Tairalyn--I admire your focus & how you've created a consistent brand with Little Miss Mama.
  5. Eschelle--I like your down-to-earthness, your honest posts about motherhood & being a childcare provider.
  6. Stasha--Your photos are beyond gorgeous.
  7. Amber--You've found some really interesting people to interview for your podcasts. It's a refreshing change to be able to tear my eyes away from the screen & just listen.
  8. Sierra--I admire your positivity & how involved you are in making your community a better place.
  9. Emily--Your sense of humour & liberal use of the word fetus is hilarious.
  10. Amy--I always look forward to the next installment on Hard Stare & savour your writing like a craft ale when a new post appears.
I hope you clicked on at least a few of the names in my list to see their blogs. Well worth a read!


While I'm at it: if you've read this far, could you possibly head over to Circle of Moms & vote for The Sprog in the Top 25 Canadian Blogs? Just click on the badge over there → 

You can vote daily, by the way, until October 11th at 4pm PST. :D 




Why Monday lists? Reading the lovely Chloe's blog, Tea Swamp Park, I found an idea I had to 'steal': a list of all her Halloween costumes, with quite a few photos. She got the idea from Hula Seventy's List Project. I've decided to do the weekly lists for a year that Hula Seventy is doing. 

Tea Swamp Park & Hula Seventy are not the only ones doing lists, however. Click on the Listicles badge to the left to check out NorthWestMommy's list & 'assignment' for next week.

  3. What an awesome take on compliments! I am also lucky enough to know a lot of those bloggers and they (as well as you) are all fantastic. Maybe this will become a travelling theme for people, wouldn't that be cool?

    1. I wanted to do interviews with bloggers I read & planned to do one a week. I managed to publish two of them, but then I got distracted with, oh, probably parenting or something. ;)
