Blog of the Month – Mama Kat

Today I’d like to share the love by highlighting a favorite blog of mine: Mama Kat Losin’ It.

I really enjoy Mama Kat’s blog and the glimpse she gives us into her life with her unique sense of humor and joie de vivre. One of my fav things is her Mama Kat’s Writer’s Workshop, which is a weekly writing activity that anyone can take part in. The great thing about her writing workshop is twofold; one) Mama Kat gives her readers a list of prompts every week that will inspire you to be creative and think outside the box and two) the way she’s structured her workshop will give you the opportunity to connect with other bloggers at the same time.

The writing prompts are posted (or you can have them emailed to you) on Tuesday. You choose the one that sparks your writing inspiration, write a blog post, then go back to Mama Kat’s blog on Thursday (or anytime) and share the link to your post within her list of links, which are displayed on her blog.

What’s so great about this? It’s all about creating connections. Anyone can click on your name and head over to your place to see what you wrote. And more than that, Mama Kat encourages all her readers to click on at least the three links so that you can read what other people are writing and learn more about them. And with her lists of prompts, who isn’t going to be curious to see what other people wrote, going click crazy discovering amazing, new, fun blogs! And think about the comments you’ll be sparked to write, the people you’ll meet, and the traffic you’ll drive to your own blog – my imagination is soaring!

Mama Kat Moto: “And remember the more comment love you give, the more comment love you get so comment comment away.”

Why don’t you join me and jump in this week? All we gotta do is choose a prompt that inspires us and write. The Prompts from her site:

  1. Prenuptial Agreement…Yay or Nay? Explain.
  2. You’re not always right…no you’re not…no you’re not…no you’re not….tell us about a time you were wrong.
  3. Describe the last thing that made you laugh really hard.
  4. A letter to your future teen.
  5. Valentine’s Day is coming…share a favorite Valentine’s tradition.

On Mama Kat’s blog, the list of links to everyone’s posts went Live today and they will stay up for the entire week so we are free to add our links at any time. I shall get something done between now and Sunday and I am leaning towards prompt #1. What about you? Any prompts jump out at you?

I love it – I think I’ll sign-up to get the prompts delivered to my email.
