Taking a break and maybe putting this blog up for sale

Published by under A Readable Feast

New here? Then you may want to subscribe to my RSS feed. Thanks for visiting!

I’ve been very blessed to have this blog. First it was a called A Readable Feast, part of the ClubMom blog program that started in the summer of 2006. The ClubMom people were great. They gave me a free pass to the BlogHer 2006 conference, which jumpstarted many fine relationships with other bloggers and with the BlogHer people.

When they ended the program in November 2007, they were nice enough to let me take my content with me. I moved it over here to My Readable Feast hosted by the nice folks at One By One Media and quickly built up traffic, readership and page rank.


But now I’m so busy with other opportunities and blogs, that I feel it’s time to take a break. It’s the best course of action since I’m not too passionate about children’s book and cooking activities these days. Sort of like my kids – we must be close to summer vacation.

Looking to buy a blog?

I’m also considering selling this blog. Yes, this blog may be for sale if the right person or opportunity comes along. So, if you’re interested in acquiring My Readable Feast contact me at am@the-write-spot.com and we can discuss.

Until then, here’s where you can find me:

What are your favorite Bedtime Stories?

Published by under Movies

We just had the opportunity to watch Bedtime Stories with Adam Sandler, or as my kids call him, “That Happy Gillmore dude.” The kids loved it and my husband thought it was great for the kids, but a bit predictable. I liked that the movie sparked my children’s imaginations.

As a handyman at the hotel his father used to own, Skeeter Bronson (Adam Sandler) spends his days changing light bulbs and competing with the hotel’s smarmy manager (Guy Pearce) for the attention of the new owner’s beautiful, hard-partying daughter, Violet (Theresa Palmer). When his sister Wendy (Courteney Cox) asks Skeeter to babysit her kids for a week while she’s out of town, Skeeter entertains his niece and nephew with elaborate, original bedtime stories that transport them to exotic locales. When he tries to help his family by telling one outlandish tale after another, it’s the kids’ unexpected contributions that turn all of their lives upside down.

Published by under Author Interviews,Books

Through Endangered Eyes Rachel Dillon As part of her WOW Blog Tour, author and illustrator Rachel Dillon joins us today to promote her gorgeous new children’s book, Through Endangered Eyes: A Poetic Journey into the Wild.  Her passion for animals and endangered species has led her to write about them in hopes that educating others will lead to a more conscientious treatment of these animals and their habitats.

She lives and works as an artist in the Southwest. Beyond design and fine art, Rachel holds a special interest in ecology, evolution, and extinction.

Win a customized Earth Day book for your child from Frecklebox

Published by under Contests

Priness Lucie coloring book Frecklebox is an online store that offers personalized gifts for kids like puzzles, books, journals, posters and growth charts at reasonable prices. The site makes it quick and easy to customize each item so it prominently features the name of the child who will receive the gift.

I recently tried out the Frecklebox service and ordered a Princess coloring book for my daughter, Lucie. It took me a second to type in her name and then I could preview the book to see exactly what each page looked like.

We received the coloring book a few days later. I was very impressed with the quality of the cover, a thick, glossy stock and the paper. No cheap newsprint here. Lucie loved the book and immediately started coloring away. The Princess coloring book sells for $6.95 and comes with a small set of crayons. This would make a terrific birthday present or holiday gift.

Win a Saves the Planet Book for Earth Day!

SavesThePlanetBook_MED Teach your child how to really make a difference in saving the planet. Frecklebox’s newest personalized book – Saves the Planet – offers up several ideas to get them started, from riding their bike to school to remembering to turn off the light switch. Help them become a super kid that protects the Earth!

So many kids are into Earth Day, so I know a book like this will be a special treat for any child. Even better, enter my giveaway to win either a hard cover or soft cover of Saves the Planet.
