Thanks for the shout out, DEBtastic Reads! You are definitely one lovely blog yourself.

Following the award rules, here are  7 Things about Writing on the Sidewalk (aka Super Blog buddies, Sarah and Suzanne):

  1. We met and bonded over our oldest boys when they were in 3rd grade – and shorter than their mothers. In other words, a loooong time ago!
  2. Our youngest boys have the same first name.
  3. We live one block away from each other.
  4. We are in the same critique group – the one that has sullied Panera with talk of kissing and panties and murder and gets kicked out after closing on a regular basis. (They try to bribe us to leave with bread, which only reinforces our bad behavior.)
  5. We both have black dogs who occasionally have sleepovers.
  6. We enjoy procrastinating together with craft days and field trips.
  7. Our husbands have 3 letter names and big families that keep us entertained.

And now we pass on the love. It’s soooo hard to choose from the many many blogs I love, but here are a few:

Kissing the Earth


and, new and growing, Efrog Press Blog

It was time for a little spring cleaning here on the Sidewalk. Since we tend to procrastinate just a wee bit, it seems appropriate that we finally cleaned out our “Blogs We Love” section on the last week of June. We have added a few new blogs on our list that you might want to check out:

DEBtastic Reads! is Debbi Michiko Florence’s blog featuring author interviews and book buzz for middle grade and young adult books. Deb’s book suggestions always have one or two that I want to add to my TBR pile.

36th Avenue is a great craft site by Desirée.  The heart behind 36th Avenue is a mamá X 4, a thrifty shopper, a fabric lover,a paint brush best friend and a never ending makeover believer. Be sure to check out her 25 gifts under $5 for some great gift ideas.

McGyver meets Martha. Dammit, Minnie is the brainchild of my very own cousin Beth. If you’re looking for some craft ideas, gardening tips and a little bit of fun, be sure to check out this site.

So now it’s your turn. Do you have any new blogs you’d like to share? I’d love to check them out.
