Finalist #8: Meet Allie @ No Time For FlashCards

Allie is the mom...I'd like to be....with regards to finding a never ending supply of fun, creative and educational things to do with my son....some days I just don't have it in me...and end up giving him a q-tip and an empty butter container...and just idea....just do whatever....I love too how her little guy is so engaged....I love him....!!!

1. In your opinion, what makes a great, readable blog?

For me a great blog is one that I can see the passion come through . It can be about their children, fashion or food, it doesn't matter what matters is that they care and are writing for the right reasons.

2. What traits do you think our mommy blogger of the year should possess?

She should be about 5'4 , with very dark brown hair... no I'm kidding. I think they should posses the ability to add value to their readers lives through their blog in whatever way they can. If I learned anything at BlogHer this year is was that words are powerful and if you use that power for good you are doing something meaningful and worthwhile no matter how "big" or "popular" your blog is.

3. Why are mommy bloggers so imporant today?

The world isn't the one it was when we were little, neighbors don't live on the same street for 25 years, the definition of community has changed. To me mommy bloggers help create an online community, one where I can be anywhere and yet still active in that community.

4. If you were stuck on a desereted island...what 3 things would you take?

My laptop, a wireless card and a never ending cup of coffee.

5. What is probably the best mom story you have?

Goodness I don't know. My son nursed until very recently ( he's almost 3) and we were at Wal-mart and I was buying strapless bar for a formal dress I'd only wear once. Well I strip down and he announces in that voice that only toddlers posses and can be heard far and wide. " Wow nice boobies, Yay boobies, I love your boobies!" I could hear the giggles outside and almost peed myself ( another fun side effect of motherhood) laughing. What can you do?

6. What do you plan on doing if you win our Mommy Blog of the Year Contest? (Going to Disneyland?)

Buy some new shoes! Always a great way to celebrate.

7. What do you want the public/readers to know about you?

I love comments, I love emails and if they are on twitter say hi ! I can never have too many friends and I want to get to know them as well.

Here are Allie's Three Fave Posts....So if you LOVE her...her little guy....and her creativity....VOTE For HER....5 days left...and the race is tight!!!
