    Thanks for hosting, as always Joy! Great week-end topic!

  2. Heather says:

    Hmm, some fun facts about me..
    I’m very musically eclectic. I will listen to virtually anything. I’ve been trying to get a Vampire novel out of my head and it is one of my goals for this year. I was a cake decorator for 20 years and still do it for fun. I’ve lost almost 80lbs and still losing more and that is what my blog is about! Realistic strategies for healthy weight loss that involves EATING! LOL. Healthy recipes too!

    If I could read one persons autobiography I would love to read Ron Ben-Israel’s!

  3. Is there such a thing as an autobiography in a comment or on a blog post? haha. I don’t think it would fit mine. The best I can do is the about me here:

    Have a wonderful weekend.

      Well you did a pretty good job of sharing – guess what I learned? We started blogging at about the same time! (Learned that tidbit in your Beautiful Blogger Award post!)

      That’s a fun fact that I did not know! 🙂

      Welcome Anni – first timers always make me smile!
      Look forward to getting to know you better and hope your first time here is a hoot! 🙂

      P.S. Did you ever watch Boston Legal? That’s what your name makes me think about –
      there was a character on the show who talked about everything / everyone being a hoot! 🙂

  7. Sharon--Around the Table

    Thanks again for opening up the link party! If I could read the biography about anyone I’d like a well written contemporary biography of Abraham!

  8. Hi Ramona!
    Every one of us brings something truly unique to our blogs. My passion is to live life fully and beautifully. Because, as my motto says, “Why be ordinary when you can be extraordinary.” It’s about being in the moment, creating a lovely world around my home, and encouraging others in the journey….all built on the foundation of knowing that a loving God desires for each of us to live fully in Him. As a walker and nature lover you’ll see nature photos every week along with an inspirational thought, quote, or verse. As a creative type I share decor and gardening ideas the rest of the time. An Extraordinary Day really is a place of joy and inspiration. Please come join me. 😀

    Hi Ramona!! I would describe myself as a happy, easy-going, crafty, Mom! My blog is an extension of all of that 🙂

    Thanks for hosting! Raising Figure Skaters rarely has posts about figure skating, since my husband and I especially used our kids’ sports to help them develop positive character traits and follow their life paths. Still, we were able to have amazing experiences and travel around the world. My kids are grown now, and I share lots of word-art freebies, inspiration, ways to make a difference, and ideas about gratitude and raising kids with character.

    Have a great weekend! 🙂

  19. Hmmmm…fun fact about me – the first thing that comes to mind is I make my own wine! 🙂 As for my blog, I’m still, 4 years later, trying to figure out what direction I’m going – right now it’s a plethora of weekly meme’s, but I’m having fun, so that’s what matters most. 😉

    Thanks so much for hosting – have a great weekend! 🙂

      Know what you mean, Stacy, but that’s okay – I think our blogs should change and evolve as we grow!

      So glad you’re going strong after 4 years.
      You are a treasure and a pleasure to meet in the blogging world! 🙂

  20. Megan Maguire says:

    Thanks for hosting 🙂

    If I could read the autobiography of anyone it would probably be James Franco or Miranda Hart.


  21. So glad I hopped onto your site – what a lovely community of bloggers you have here! I’ve liked you on FB.

  22. Nicole@Show Off Friday says:

    Thank you for hosting another great party! I think bloggers are a unique bunch of people and according to the people in my life I definitely fit into that category! My friend said that she thought I was too busy but I told her that after everything that needs to get done is done, and often even before ;), I need to do the things I really want to do or it would be too boring and and so I squeeze those things in as much as I can. Blogging is one if those things. If the things I love to do tip me over the scales of too busy, so be it!

  23. Nicole@Show Off Friday says:

    Also, I wanted to say that my blog,, and my internet presense in general, is a great reflection of my very busy personality!

  24. Hilary says:

    funny thing … my blog post for today is somewhat autobiographical!

  25. Marcie says:

    Fun facts about me where do I begin. I enjoy the arts taking in plays,working with my camera,my projects and playing with words. The blogging is used to introduce people to my work sometimes it will be a piece of my art work other times you might see pictures from my camera of things that caught my eye. I am open to new ideas and new challenges as my blog will show. The big thing is the friends I have meet along my blogging journey. Thanks for hosting and have a great weekend!

      Hi Jonelle,

      I sent you an e-mail but I have not heard back from you. In order to assist I really need to know more about what is going on. What type of difficulty are you having? Let me know via e-mail and I will do my best to help. Alternatively, if you send me your link I will be happy to add it for you! 🙂

  27. Humm!! Fun facts about myself?? I love to read and eat crunchy things like popcorn in bed:) I know, bad bad bad:) LOL!

      Evelyn, you naughty girl! Or, perhaps, you are just a neat eater!
      I certainly couldn’t eat in bed – I would have crumbs and popcorn everywhere!

    Hello There my Friend!

    Things have been crazy at our home…ack! I love autobiographies! Biographies as well.
    If I could read anyone’s autobiography- who would it be? Hmmmm….oh…that is hard since I favor hearing most about how people come to believe what they do…so I love memoirs, and such.

    I am stealing a minute to visit you BUT feel sp pressed for time because we are in a battle here this week still- my sweet girls and Banjo (our dog) have fleas! It is so stressful. I can’t tell you how much cleaning I have been doing and I think we will win soon…but my poor girls, Ashley and Aurora…they just are breaking my heart with the scratching. Today we have a round of FleaMeds and also some stuff to put around the house to kill those evil things.

    ANyway…I have to look up autobiography later…I think I write that way right? I write about my life…kind of…I reveal myself (discreetly- I hope) at my blog…lol hmmm.

    Have a great weekend.

      OH my, Dawn – I do hope you get things under control soon – I could not agree more – fleas are terrible!

      I love reading memoirs too. There are some truly amazing people and stories in this world!

  29. Rachel says:

    Hey there – new follower from the linkup. Love your blog & can’t wait to read more. Hope you have a great weekend 🙂

  30. Rachel says:

    Facts: 1) I’m happy to be joining this blog hop and 2) I think this question is really cute!

  31. Tess says:

    OK, Miss Ramona, this new reading challenge obsession of mine is almost entirely your fault! *LOL* And I thank you for it! I haven’t been this excited about reading in years!

      Oh, LuAnn, I am SO happy to read your comment! Tell me more! Which Reading Challenges are your favorites? Which ones are you thinking about joining? Do let me know – and be sure to leave your thoughts on the 2013 Reading Challenges post so that everyone who is interested can follow the thread! 🙂

  33. Hello there!

    I’m a first timer.

    I am a writer, poet, storyteller, photographer, cyclist, and cat lover.

    I have been blogging since 2002, and closed 2 blogs, one on cycling, by 2010.

    My 2nd personal blog began in 2007.

    My other blogging interest is as a cat blogger.

    While my Cat Nikita has been my muse since he was a kitten, in 1998, and co-blogger from 2002 to 2009, I finally gave him his own place in 2010, where he was joined by Miss Elvira soon after.

    After a lifetime in Southern California, my cats & I relocated to Houston, TX., last September.

    Career-wise I am most proud of 17 years spent working in a bookstore, 11 as store manager. I have also had an essay published in a Star Trek Anthology, and been quoted in another bok, on non-car transit options.

    I like to read and collect books, take urban hikes, and long bike rides.

    Hello! We are new here. Our Human suggested we say hello.

    We are cats….we blog.

    We are storytellers, poets, journalists, commentators, stroller kitties, and more.

    We like naps and snoozes, belly rubs, lap catting, sun puddles, cat trees, quality catnip, and tasty kibble.

    I, Nikita, am 14 1/2 yr. old Main Coonish cat with arthritis, and have been online in one form or another since I was a kitten.

    It took a while, but my Human finally got wise and gave me my own blog in 2010.

    I, Elvira Mistress of Felinity, am a soon to be 3 year old Tortie. I am the sassiest feline on the internet! And cute, too!

    Thank you for hosting! It was great to meet you tonight at the Blogelina party! Funny thing – I actually have this link-up marked on Pinterest to check out!

    Thank you for hosting

    What a fab idea for a linkup x

  39. Lisa says:

    Thank you so much for hosting! I so enjoy participating in your hops! 🙂 As for a few things about me: I love to take pictures (big surprise after seeing my blog, right? lol), crochet, read, travel (when time and money permit of course, lol) and spend time with my family.

      It’s been a delight getting to know you this past year Lisa!
      I always love reading what you and your family are up to.
      Thanks for being such a wonderful contributor to our community! 🙂

  40. I blog with my sister, Betina on Mommy LaDy Club, which is our personal blog for our handmade business, LaDy LaDuke…Unique Items For Mothers & Women. We really embraced the blogging part of business, and now have a club of bloggers and mompreneurs we try to help to learn all of the ins and outs of blogging and business. We still like to be silly on our personal blog with our Battles of The Leading Men and Comedy Club, and share stories about ourselves.

    I would like to read the auto-biography of my great-great Swedish grandmother, who left her family, crossed the Atlantic, and walked across America to the West all by herself. I’d like to know what made her do that. It’s why I’m here!

  41. I would love to read my father’s, simply because I’ve never met him and I”d love to know his story.

    Aloha 🙂

    Thank you for the invite to share on your lovely site. Rescue the Stories Book One has stories from as young as I can remember, through age 18 when I married and left home.
    I am working on book two, and discovering more stories that I did not remember at the time that could have been in book one. I will probably add them into book two as there are some too good to miss. My stories have a life lesson with most of the stories. Things my mother taught me, and things I learned with the help of our Lord.
