Preparing for 100

I have done some spring cleaning.
On my blog.
Not my house.

Now that my blog is tidy, I have a place to put this beautiful bouquet of flowers. Thank you Sports Mama , you are a great blog friend. I would like to pass this award on to a couple of my friends, Huckdoll and Kelly. Both are fabulous writers who I have gotten to know through their very honest blogs. My life is richer and more interesting now that I know you.

Do you notice what I have done to tidy up? Right there below my header is a set of links. My Blogroll is organized and in one place. Everyone should be on it, but if you're not leave me a comment and I will add you.

The "Awards" link houses the wonderful recognition that I have received. Click on "About" to get the low down on my family. I want to add one more link called "FAQ" or maybe "OAQ" (once asked questions). In order to accomplish this feat, I need your help! (channeling Dora, who the kids are watching in the other room)

Can you do me a big favor? Ask me some questions. What do you want to know about me? What do you already know about me that should be on this page? Ask away. I will answer. I am going to leave this open for a week and reveal my answers for my 100th post.

I have many readers that don't usually comment (according to my stats, 35 of you). I would love it if you would participate in this exercise. Leave your questions in the comments section or email them to seibelblog(at)gmail(dot)com. Anonymous comments will be accepted. As an added bonus, any contributers with blogs will received some linky love from me.

Thanks for helping!! I couldn't have done without you! (Dora again)

I love your "page" links up top. That's one thing I miss from wordpress and I didn't know blogger did that!

my question...hmmm..I'm really bad at asking questions. But here goes: how do you find the time to comment so regularly? I find this difficult with so many blogs to read and wanting to return the comments that people make on my blog. It's so hard!

lattemommy said...

Great new look on your blog! Very tidy!

Questions, huh? Ok, I want to know how you manage to do it all? Wife, mommy, full-time job, blogger, avid blog reader and commenter, personal emails in response to comments, social networks, etc, etc. I can barely get done in one day what you seem to do before noon. How *do* you do it??

Kellan said...

Your site looks great Amy!! I have learned a lot about you over the last several months, but I'm going to ask you ... What is a biggest regret? And ... what did you want to be when you grew up? I know, those aren't all that creative, but I still want to know.

Hope you had a good weekend - see you later. Kellan

Amy said...

I really like that bar up there too! I'm not in the know, help me be in the know!
My question, do you want any more children? I'm always curious about how big a family people want.

The Sports Mama said...

Ok. Here goes. *ahem*

How do you think life would have been different if you had two BOYS instead of GIRLS? (Notice I didn't say better... lol... for while I have two boys and no girls, I'm not convinced its for everyone!)

The Sports Mama said...

Oh... and you totally deserved that award! :)

Irene said...

Actually I do have a question. I don't know if you ever mentioned it (it is possible I missed it), but what do you do for a living? As a former working woman who often thinks about what my next career may be, I am very interested in learning about other's careers.

I also find it so interesting (and SO cool) that your husband is the stay at home dad!!

I like your blog changes!

OHmommy said...

Very nice. I love spring cleaning.... just did it on my blog too!

Congrats on you award.

Why did you start blogging? And what inspires you?

Gray Matters said...

Not quite sure how I found your blog, but I have enjoyed reading through it. I like the way you have everything organized. Let's see, a question . . . have you thought of switching blog platforms or are you happy and staying put with Blogger?
Look forward to reading more. Thank you.

Rachel said...

Amy, that looks fabulous! I'm trying to tidy mine up as well.
You are doing so much and are doing such a great job at it!
Congrats on your very very well deserved award!!
I love who you passed it on to, too ;-)
Thanks for being such a great bloggy friend.

If your life was a novel, what would the title be?

krissy said...

Who is your favorite actress and actor and what is your favorite movie?????

A whole week??? We have to wait a whole week???? Crap!! :0)

krissy said...

You forgot me on the blogroll! Ouch, that cut like a knife! Just kidding!

kidzmama said...

I love, love, love the new links at the top. It makes it more professional looking. And you totally deserve the flowers.

I have questions about Jeff. What was his job before he decided to stay at home? Does he have a blog too? Does he get mad at you if you put something in the dishwasher in the wrong spot? What's his favorite book from the kid's bookshelf?

pb&j in a bowl said...

Your spring cleaning looks great!

I've got a question about Jeff and staying home with the girls. And this is a result of another blogger's post (suburban turmoil) about stay at home dads not having an outlet. Does he and the girls belong to a playgroup? Does he ever complain about being left out of all moms groups?

Nap Warden said...

Look at you code guru! I love tidy blogs:)

Question...What is a quick easy dinner for the family, I need some ideas:)

Jane the Sane said...

First question: I want to know where you grew up because it sounds like we were practically neighbors. I was born in French Camp.

Second question: What is your favorite book or favorite author (or both)?

Kellan said...

Hey Amy - thanks for coming by. Hope you had a good Monday - see you later. Kellan

Meg said...

I personally think your sight is beautiful AND so organized..! I am working on getting mine looking better too.

Question...Do you post at night and date it for the next day or do you get up in the morning at the crack of dawn and blog?


Honeybell said...

I'm also wondering what your occupation is . . . and your favorite curse word. :p

dlyn said...

I love the new look - I am thinking of doing something similar actually.

My question - what are your hopes for your kids when they are grown?

Maria said...

I want to know how you made your hair so pretty in that last post! BTW, I did get my haircut over the weekend. You were my inspiration!

carrie said...

It looks so pretty over here! I love the new look!

Kelly said...

Gorgeous blog. i'm gonna e-mail you some questions as soon as I finish cruising through my blogroll and catching up with all my lovely ladies.
And, just so you know I don't deserve the compliment. YOU are the one teaching me it all.
Love and peace!

SuburbanDaddy said...

You spend a lot of time blogging. (How do you find the time? -- but that's not my question :-) )

My question...if you never started blogging, what would you be doing instead with all the time you devote to it?

ToddlerDaddy said...

My question is simple - why do you put your life out there for people to share in? Is there something you wouldn't blog about or are you a completely open book.

Also, and most importantly, favortie cartoon character.

Melissa said...

Looks great! Very clean and organized. I am working on spring cleaning the house. And you want a question???? Ok then, I am not sure if you have answered before or not, but, How did you meet your husband?

Victoria said...

Your blog looks so pretty!!

Um, questions? Since I'm a travel junkie...Your hubby surprises you with a trip of a lifetime. You leave today. Where would you go??
