Surprise! We are getting to know you!

SURPRISE - A sudden feeling of wonder or astonishment; to come upon or discover suddenly and unexpectedly. [Click here for this week's Bliss Initiatives]

O.K. so not all of you!! Totally not possible in one little post, but after sharing some things about me yesterday (oh and if you want more, I shared 8 additional surprising things over on Everyday Mommy today) I have decided I want to share about my readers. In a completely random approach (used random number generator to select) I picked three of my followers and am doing a little "getting to know you" feature here today. 

I have never visited Jennifer's website before today and I am clear that has been my loss. Sadly, today she shares about her Aunt's passing and the pussy willow painting she has dedicated to her. Sadness aside I am amazed and delighted by her absolutely gorgeous art work and thoughtful way of expressing herself. I have immediately signed up to follow her blog and will be visiting her Art Shop as soon as I am done with this post!

This Everyday Bliss follower is the charming Ms. Baby Plan who blogs to help de-stress about her wishes to conceive. She is eager and curious on all motherhood issues and happily receives advice and all good luck wishes! In between all her hopeful mommy musings she blogs about fashion and fitness. She is really great at responding to all comments and returns blog visits so if you are interested in a terrific bloggy friend do visit!  

I can not say enough nice things about this next lovely blogger.  First of all how can EVERYDAY Kathy NOT love another blogger with Everyday in their name, but what makes this corner of the blogosphere so special is Everyday Goddess's weekly blog feature (click for this week's Goddess Awards). She tells how she regularly reads over 200 blogs and in her weekly Goddess Awards she highlights the best of what she has read. Every week she picks some terrific finds. whenever I don't have time to read my own blogroll I just head over to her place and find the top spots of the week.  Why don't you check it out now!

Just a small sampling of the Everyday Bliss readership! Thank you to the three of you and for everyone who did not get featured here. I appreciate the diversity of the Everyday Bliss fans and truly appreciate the fact that you continue to stop by my little place in cyber space.

If you comment today, tell me please, how did you come to follow Everyday Bliss?

Next Post: I'm not telling... it is a surprise!

This week we are studying Surprise. Next week it is Hiatus week and after that, Joy.


  1. Oddly, I don't remember! I know I stayed as soon as I found you, though! OH! I think it was through the One World One Heart event! (maybe). Or maybe it was before that. I don't know! It seems like forever!

  2. What a wonderful surprise - for the bloggers themselves and for your readers. It's always nice to be able to meet new and talented people. Everyone has something unique to offer! :) At first I didn't remember how I found your blog - but then I saw that Jingle comments and it dawned on me...I read her post on being a guest blogger here. Hurray for Jingle! :) I'm so happy I found you. :) Theresa

  3. Wow Kathy! Thank you so much! I am always glad to feel the positive energy around here!
    I love how you make a conscious decision to feel your bliss Everyday!
    And if I may, I'm sending you my Blissings!

  4. I'm just now visiting your blog and am finding it quite interesting. Will come back and nose around some more!!! Thanks for being a follower on my blog. Hope you will visit often....although I don't think mine is nearly so interesting and entertaining as yours! Cheri's Chatter

  5. I found you on MBC I believe I now have you bookmarked and enjoy checking in on you! :-) ~Kimberly

  6. Thanks so, so much for featuring me! Wow, I am super happy.

  7. Hi Kathy. I can't quite remember how I came to run across your blog, but I'm here. Probably LBS.

    Congrats to all those who were mentioned. I will be on my way to check them out as soon as I'm finished here. There is quite the positive energy here and I love to be able to find that in cyberspace. It's everywhere I guess.

    Have a great weekend. See you at the tea party.
