SHINE A LIGHT SUNDAY (SALS): 5.1.11

Can you believe it's already May??!!  The days on the calendar sometimes seem like they're being sucked into a vortex faster than the speed of light!  It's unbelievable!


Anyway, it's another Sunday and it's time to put the spotlight on some special blogs I've recently discovered.  I hope you visit and enjoy them as well!  


Once again, here are the 'rules'---








1.  Follow CATHARSIS and the one who's shining the light on you (if it's another blog), but only if you truly appreciate their blogs and plan on coming back to read and comment on their posts.  

2.  Feel free to copy the SHINE A LIGHT SUNDAY button above to post on your own blog entry and link back to this. (optional)

3.  Make a list of 3 to 5 blogs, (with proper links of course), that have become your  favorites and that you would like to promote and place a spotlight on, so to speak.  It would be great if you can always include a few new blogs that you've discovered and have grown to love and feel might need more support in terms of readership/followers.  If you want, you can do a short write-up for each to give a brief background of the sites, or to explain why you love them.  I'm limiting this to 3 to 5 blogs because bear in mind that you can do this every Sunday or any Sunday you feel like it.

4.  Make sure you inform the blog authors of those 3-5 blogs you listed for the week that you've shone the light on them.  This way they can participate and pay it forward.  That's the most important part!

My newest finds and favorites ----


Sounds Like Crazy: Marrying & Mothering Thru Mental Illness - Nancy's honesty about living with certain disorders is eye-opening and you just can't help but appreciate her and how she welcomes us all into her daily struggles.


Philosophy of a Cynic - Sarcastic take on everyday life and a tell-it-like-it-is voice...fun to read and easy to get hooked!


Victoria's Voice - She seems to have everything a blogger needs like product reviews, recipes, giveaways, blog hop links, practical tips and more!  It's like a magic box you'd want to carry around with you all the time 


I hope you'll visit these bloggers with me on this beautiful, sunny Sunday!  Enjoy the week ahead!
