Welcome to my first post of 2012!
Wednesdays are now all about women – sexy, smart, strong, sentimental, savvy, sassy and stylish women.
~We’ll talk about women of all ages. Women like you and like me. Women who struggle, who survive, who strive for better and who are always learning. Women who have been lucky, who have made a difference, who have succeeded and who have failed.
Women throughout the ages and women all over the world have something to teach us, some way to reassure us, many ways to inspire us and can always make us laugh out loud.
You educate a man; you educate a man. You educate a woman; you educate a generation.”
― Brigham Young
We women, in our ever-growing circle of friends, have stories to tell. Stories of strength, courage, insight, love and loss. We are strong, capable, intelligent, funny and we are all beautiful in our own ways.
~This blog is for you. So, a regular feature of this blog will be to highlight one of you and your story. The story can be as simple as a childhood memory that taught you something, or a tender moment that touched your heart. Your story may be sentimental, uplifting, educational, or hilarious. It may speak of fear, fortitude, community, aging, health, triumph or defeat.
Whatever your story is, we would love to have you share it with us. Please contact me via email: marcia DOT a DOT richards AT gmail.com with your story or any questions you may have.
~Since SEXY is a part of every woman, I’ll be bringing back the Oooh, Sexy! posts. They were by far my most viewed posts in the past year. I have some ideas for upcoming posts, but if there is a sexy topic you’d especially like to see posted, please feel free to let me know in your comment.
~This month my blog is one year old. Next Wednesday I hope you’ll join me for a birthday celebration. Well, actually, you HAVE to join me because YOU are the guest of honor!
What’s that you say? I thought it was your blog’s birthday?
It is my blog’s birthday, however, I wouldn’t still be blogging if it weren’t for YOU visiting and commenting. YOU are the one who has kept me motivated, kept me learning, kept me experimenting, kept me improving. Want to see where I began? Click here.
It’s because of YOU that my blog is successful. So YOU are going to be honored at the birthday party.
~My special guests next Wednesday will be four women who have been uber-supporters of this blog and have blessed me with the highest number of comments of all my readers! I will be revealing their names first thing on next Wednesday morning and I’ll be giving you a peek into their awesomeness. They are all unique, sexy and smart, and always speak from the heart.
I’ll give you a hint for each of them:
Guest #1 lives in the midwest, has a penchant for bologna and is a hard-working young woman.
Guest #2 lives in a mid-atlantic state, loves a football team not of her state and is Mom to several critters.
Guest #3 lives in central NY, loves to play in the dirt and has a way with words.
Guest #4 lives in the northern regions, has a group of friends who found themselves written into her book, and is a world traveler.
Contest #1 If you can guess who all four guests are, I will have a prize waiting for you on the 11th. You have until Sunday night, January 8th to let me know your guesses in the comment section. Good luck!
Contest #2 Write a 50-100 word story using one or more of the following words: smart, sexy, savvy. One story will be chosen at random. The story and the author’s bio will be posted on my blog at the birthday party on the 11th. Submit entries to me via email: marcia DOT a DOT richards AT gmail.com by Sunday night, January 8th. Happy writing!
I hope you commented and subscribed at the Life List Club Milestone Party last Friday! The winner of an Amazon gift card and her choice of guest posting or being interviewed on my blog iiiisssss….Darlene Steelman! Darlene, please email me to choose your prize.
