Caught my eye Friday – Beating the Bieber and a Perfect Post

It’s been a big week for me with my other life (working for the man) pushing my blogging life to the side. Although I’ve been lax in clicking and commenting I’ve still managed to put together a few things that caught my eye.

Thank @#$% for that!

four more years

I need to be careful with the “unless you’ve been living under a rock” comment because I clearly remember having a <3month old and being firmly under that rock so, I’ll simply say that some really big news happened in the US that you may have been aware of.

Yes the big man Obama was re-elected by a pretty over-whelming majority. I won’t pretend to know a lot about US politics (or any other for that matter) but it’s nice to see someone who believes in a bit of fairness at the helm of the most powerful government in the western world. If you’re not into politics but are into twitter, I found the stat about Obama’s winning tweet being the fastest and widest tweet ever pretty cool. Even cooler because it smashed the previous record set by Justin Bieber (thank @#$% for that!!)

…bursting with energy?

Zani over at Heart Mama put together an amazing post about perspectives. I read it and couldn’t help re-visiting all my generalisations about my illiterate infant toddler.

There’s thought, wisdom and care in both the images and the words. In short, this deserves a view if you haven’t already checked it out.
I saw them first…

I’m not sure how I found Sonny & Luca but I’m glad I did. Apart from having one of my favourite looking blogs there’s great writing. If you’ve got a few minutes spare pop in and check them out (Tell them Kevin sent you)

That’s all for this week. As always, let me know if you see something that deserves a highly regarded CMEF award. Have a cracking weekend.

    Love Heart Mama, great choice. I’m not familiar with Sonny & Luca though so I’ll check it out.
    And I was SO proud that I knew Obama won. Must’ve been sunning myself ON the rock at that moment. But on an unrelated note, should I be blanking out my profanities? Because seeing all your @#$% made me feel quite naughty. I’ve seen a lot of @#$% lately and I’m starting to wonder if everyone else is a ‘goody-two-shoes’ or if I’m just terribly improper!?

      Love heart Mama was a deserving mention.

      As for my #@$%ing swearing. I’m just in the habit of not swearing but swearing from work. I love a good swear but just can’t do it in an email.

    Thank you so much Kevin! I am touched you included my post. Straight after Obama – wow 🙂 So glad it resonated with you.

    Love Heart Mama. One of the first bloggers I connected with. Awesome for a nice, mushy, warmth-in-your-heart type read.

    Those images on Heart Mama were so amazing weren’t they!

    I was so relieved that Obama was re-elected, my husband (an American) was following the whole election and keeping me updated. His reply to my text was, “Can count out another war for at least 4 years”.

    Whew!

  5. Excellent choices as always Kev. I too reckon that post from Heart Mama was my fave one all week, maybe all month even! She has such a beautiful way with words and that post really did give me some perspective.

    Haven’t see Sonny & Luca so will definitely be checking them out. Happy Friday! Hope you have a fantabulous weekend!

  6. Off to check out Sonny and Luca 🙂

    I’m a bit (a lot) of a US politics fanatic, so the whole result made me a very glad person on Wednesday 🙂

    I do live under a rock a lot of the time in regards to no and politics, but I did hear aout Obama and was glad he got in.
    Off to check out Sonny and Luca now

  8. Sim says:

    I’m going to go and check out Sonny and Luca now, and I already love Heart Mama. I completely agree with you about Obama. Thank #$@% Beiber has been toppled from the top of the twittersphere.

  9. Me says:

    LOL – anything that knocks Bieber off anywhere is good in my book !!!
    Thanks for the heads up on Sonny & Luca – off to check them out.
    Have a great day !
    Me
