Friend Of The Week & Inspiring Blogger – Teresa Bell Kindred
Everyone loves Nana – and today, I’d like to introduce you to Teresa Bell Kindred of Nanahood – The Second Half Of The Motherhood Journey!
Teresa is known around the blogosphere as “the bloggy-est nana in the hood – the nanahood, that is” – and here’s a few reasons why!
Teresa is an avid blogger and author who has not the author of several books, but a magazine columnist and corporate blogger as well!
She has a M.A. in Secondary Education and – in the “real” world – has impacted the lives of 7th graders, high school and college students.
What I love most about Teresa’s blog is the variety of heartfelt articles that she writes on so many topics. I cried with her when she said goodbye to Murphy, her dog. I nodded understandingly when she wrote about 4 things I can’t get rid of and why. That’s what good writers do – they connect with us – they speak to our hearts – they keep us coming back for more.
But – don’t take my word for it! This week, won’t you drop by Nanahood and give Teresa some comment love – explore her blog – extend her a warm welcome as our Friend Of The Week – and congratulate her on receiving the Inspiring Blogger Award from Create With Joy!
