Meet my other friends Monday

Monday's are so much easier to deal with when I have a little help from my friends. Since I think I've got the greatest friends on earth I want to share them with everyone. Monday's are dedicated to the best bloggers I know, my pals. You could be next.
 
This week I would like to welcome Marie from Women talk about Life. I met Marie when another blogger mentioned that she knew a brand new blogger and invited us all to go over and meet her. I'm so glad I took the time to take a look. Marie is such a sweet lady, I'm sure you'll love her just as much as I do. When you visit her you'll be treated to the wildlife around her home, her furbabies and her handsome son.
 
This was him at Halloween. I'm pretty sure he doesn't always dress like that....lol
 
1) How long have you been blogging and what made you start? I started blogging July 2011. I've often had friends and family tell me I'm a people magnet. I started noticing that they were right, a lot of people talk to me, not the friend I'm with or my mom or hubby it's usually me. I find myself engaged with a total stranger and they're telling me things about their life. Some stories have me laughing and smiling and some put me in tears! There is a lot of lonely people out there. I know what it's like to be lonely and so maybe I have an extra soft spot in my heart for people who feel the need to share with me. Because of these moments I've had friends tell me I should write a book, start a blog or start a website or even start a business to help people. I told hubby one evening that I was starting a blog. He asked about what and I said I don't really know, I want to talk to people and share some of my life experiences and maybe relate to others or maybe even help others. There was something I was missing and I found it...the wonderful people in blog land! Sometimes it's not the blog it's the friendship behind the blogs. :)


2) What is one piece of advice you would give to a new blogger? Look up blogs that have something you are interested in and take it from there.
3) Do you have any hobbies or special talents? I love shopping in thrift stores and blogging. I'm really good at nagging my sixteen year old, is that a talent?? lol Also, I've done wildlife rescue since I was very young. Squirrels, birds, turtles, ducklings, rabbits (including a pregnant one), baby opossums, even a hawk that had been hit by a car. I never pass any animal in need. If I can't help, I get help. :)
4) Of course you love all the blogs you visit but share a link to one of those and tell us why we should check it out. I can't choose one. I hope that you will visit my blog and check out the blogs I follow, they're all wonderful. You are bound to find something of interest. :)
5) What is the one things that totally makes you crazy? You don't have enough space for my list. ha! I'll just go with people that litter!!! Can't stand it, there's no excuse for it!!!!!

6) Give one random though. I need more chocolate! :)

Hugs,

Sweet Marie
