Blogs of the week

Our recent feature is "Blogs of the Week." Each week, we will feature a reader blog (which has to be sent to us) and an author blog (which can either be sent to us, or we'll pick one at random). This is our first week doing it and we hope to keep the momentum going for a while. Please check out the blogs we are sharing. I'm sure the bloggers would love some friendly comments on their posts or a follow.

To have your blog featured for a future shout out, please e-mail us. The blogs can be anything: personal, book themed or something else you're interested in that you write about (movies, fashion, pets, career, etc.)


Jeryl Marcus has two blogs:

Says Me Says Mom, a blog she keeps with her older daughter, where they pick a topic and each write their view of it. She also has a blog called Stories for Dora, which is a blog of stories she writes for her younger daughter and occassionally her older daughter also contributes a story. Jeryl was featured on Simply Stacie recently and she gave CLC a shout-out. We're glad to return the favor. :) She also was featured on for their "Review Chair" feature. Those of you with young children will definitely enjoy her blogs, but "Says Me, Says Mom" is always a good way to get to know her, as well.
