My Coming Out Story

My Favorite Posts of the Year


Rant: Why Kirk Cameron Can Kiss My Ass — This is one of my favorites because it was my first “real” rant. I had written a few prior to this one, but I was really mad when I wrote the Kirk Cameron post, so nothing was held back. Well, except a few F words… because I don't use those here! ;)

How to Learn Anything Online For Free – This one made my favorites list because it was so fun to put together! I really enjoy learning new things, so it's right up my alley.

My Daughter is NOT A Lesbian! Or Maybe She Is… – This one made my favorite posts because I finally felt comfortable opening up. Kind of like my Coming Out Post.

Would You Follow a Satanist's Blog? – No, I'm not a Satanist. But I enjoyed this post because it got people to think.

When Christians Give Christians a Bad Name – I get asked some of the craziest questions. This one set me off on a rant. :)

  1. Wow your doing GREAT at your weight loss!! I am looking at older pics and it really shows!! I know how hard it is. It has taken me 6 months to lose almost 40lbs, and I want to lose another 30 by summer, with fingers crossed! I did it by cutting out all carbs at first, (so hard), then slowly eating “healthy” ones. I lost 20lbs very quickly and the rest has taken time but don’t it feel great to try on a pair of jeans that you could not get into just 5-6 months ago!! I am now even sharing some clothes with my 18-year-old daughter!!

  2. I think my fav was the 100 things to do instead of watching tv. My kids are always complaining of being bored and I am tired of hearing that so now I have a ton of things they can do.

  3. My favorite was on the list yeah! I loved the Home Depot post, but of course I heart all your crafts and recipes too! Here’s to 2013!

  4. Wow… that is a great roundup for the year so that means I have homework! I’ve got mine, but they seem so technical versus yours…lol, and it is waiting to be published this evening. *hugs*

    1. Technical posts are good (and helpful), though! Can’t wait to see yours!
