Your Life, Your Blog – Pets & MomTV Topics Du Jour

Hello fabulous bloggers and friends! Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging words last week, as we were going through the loss of our pet, Nigel. We went back and forth a lot, and my husband really felt that he needed to look for another dog to bring into our family. He loves having a canine companion, and was really having a hard time with this loss.

It’s a long story (which I will be sharing on Mom TV this week!) but we found the perfect new family member, and I’m really excited to show him to you on Thursday! Napoleon is a three month old, black standard poodle, with a sweet and obedient disposition.

So Thursday at 1PM est, on MomTV’s GET REAL , we’ll talk all about pets! Dogs, cats, hermit crabs (hee hee), fish, you name it! I’d love for you guys to some on your webcams and show off your pets, and I’ll be looking for a prize to give away to one viewer who shows us his/her pet!

If you missed the show last week, we had an incredible discussion about the power of social media to change/save lives. Angela England was there to tell us all about baby Jaeli who is fighting a rare chromosomal disorder, and whose life has been saved by donations of Breast Milk! You can watch the Get Real playback here, by clicking Menu>View Movies.

While you’re here, leave me a comment below telling me what topics you’d like to see on Get Real!

SO now, let’s here about YOU! I’ll be stumbling and tweeting some of the posts as well, and I encourage you to do the same! (I’ll also be converting these into “real links” which is good for your SEO)

  • Every Monday on Real Life, I post a linky where you can share any post from the previous week on your blog! That way, I can go through and read them, and you can too!
  • The only guideline is that it must be reated PG! This is a family blog, folks! You can share your life with your kids, a funny commentary, a contest you’re hosting, reviews, an informative post, video, anything, really!
  • Read, comment and stumble! Please link back to this post, so others can join in! (You can just put a small phrase at the bottom of the post, like “This post included in Real Life’s Your Life Your Blog” or include the button). Please spread the word, because this carnival will be more effective if lots of people are linking and reading. And each Monday, the links from the previous “Your Life, Your Blog” will be converted to “real” links. It’s all about the love, right?

Here’s the code for the button if you’d like to display it on your blog:
