About this blog

Welcome to Life Out Loud: be yourself…everyone else is taken.

A blog by me; Natalie Hartford.

I hope you have a blast while visiting. My intent is to entertain, encourage, inspire, inform, and empower.

I post here three days a week; Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

My line-up for each week:

  • Monday – Life Streaming: a mix of personal stories (including some of my most embarrassing moments) and hilarious urban redneck stuff that I discover (like the 6-pack pink beer belt and the trailer hitch pole dancing unit) and dare to own someday (no joke). All around fun posts to give you the perfect Monday boost.
  • Wednesday – Urban Word Wednesday: brought to you by me, hubby and the Urban Dictionary. These are new uberlicious words, phrases and sayings that I am learning (and using in my day-to-day life). I mean…vajazzle…need I say more? You are gonna love these!
  • Friday – Impaired Driving: in 2009, my beautiful 60-year-old mother-in-law (known to y’all as Mamma K) was killed by an impaired driver. It’s become a life passion of mine to advocate against impaired driving. My hope is that Friday’s posts will also get YOU fired up to advocate against this 100% preventable crime. See our story under my impaired driving page.
  • Hubby’s Corner: as a special treat, once a month (the first Monday of each month) hubby swings by to amp up the hilarity by taking over my blog with a Hubby’s Corner post.
  • Every Post: I will highlight other blogs and posts you might enjoy.

Here’s to our blogging adventure…let the fun (and stories) unfold.


  1. Thanks for the link backs. This is the first time I have read the About page here…my husband posted a virgin word @ urban dictionary – ventrilogasm.- pretty sure there is something wrong with him, but he’s funny so I’m keeping him.

    • You are most welcome for the linky love. The post on the goat had me in a fit of giggles. I read them to hubby and I though he’d died laughing. Seriously priceless.
      Ventrilogasm – fahhhbulous!! I am going to look it up and I’ll have to use it in an upcoming post to give your hubby some fame.
      Gotta luv funny men….they keep things happy. :-)
