Welcome to Thursday Blog-Hop.

While you’re here please check out my current giveaways

Bassgiraffe's Thoughts Canadian Mommy Blog Reviews and Giveaways

1. Please follow the hosting blog- bassgiraffe’s Thoughts and the STAR blog in spot #2. (PLEASE follow this rule, I have been a featured blog of other hops and never get any new followers, really sucks when people don’t follow the rules)
2. Please visit as many blogs as possible.
3. If someone visits your blog please visit theirs back, but I know that we don’t like all blogs we visit so don’t feel obligated to follow back if you don’t want.
4. Family friendly blogs only, please.
5. You will need to link to your blog post that has the above blog-hop button. Without a post it makes it harder for people to have a proper place to comment and let you know they stopped by. You will NOT be chosen as “Star Blog” if I can’t find the button on your blog!
I will be featuring one blog from the week before who made a post containing the blog hop button. This is a random draw from here on out. Each week’s STAR spot will be chosen via If the blog chosen does not have a post containing the hop button I will redraw a name. I hope that made sense. (PLEASE– in order to be the “Star Blog” you HAVE to have the button on your blog post/or sidebar, and please make it easy for me to find).

This week’s STAR spot is From Bless Others With Cards. Please follow their blog.

I thought it would be fun to get to know the “Star Blogger”, so I asked them a few questions.

1- How long have you been blogging?
I actually set up my 1st blog, Raising Future Leaders, in Oct. ’09 and then it just sat there for months with no activity. I was so clueless about blogging, I just didn’t know what to do next. Then in May ’10 I had an “ah-ha” moment and have been blogging ever since! I started my 2nd blog, Bless Others With Cards less than a month ago.

2- What got you started on blogging?
I originally started blogging to share information about my life, my faith, my family, homebirth, natural immunity, homeschooling, being a Mompreneur, and most importantly, raising productive children. I gave up my career as a Dental Hygienist when my 1st baby was born and I’ve been home raising my future leaders for 16 years now. I’m now a homeschool mom of 6 amazing kids! That’s basically how my Raising Future Leaders blog evolved. Bless Others With Cards is something very close to my heart that just needed to be a blog of its own.

3-what is the main focus of your blog?
Anyone who has been on my blog for more than 30 seconds knows I love blessing others with cards! For the past 2 years, I’ve been taking the time to send an unexpected, heartfelt card to someone almost every day to let them know I care about them and they’re appreciated in this world. Receiving a real card in the mail touches a person’s life in a very special way. Customer loyalty and referrals can be built through the simple gesture of sending cards too. I send 100’s of birthday cards a year!!! I recently started featuring my blog followers and fans on their special day on my blogs too, so please make sure you’re on my Birthday List here!

4- Is there anything else you’d like to share with my readers?
Bless Others With Cards is devoted to my passion for touching lives through sending heartfelt cards. I’ll be documenting my journey and the blessings it’s had on my life as I send cards with 1,000’s of others around the world. I have so many stories that I can’t wait to share. Many of them will literally make you cry! I’m hoping it will be inspiring and encouraging to others.

NEW!!!! If I can get 120 people to enter this hop I will give one random hopper a $15 gift-card to!!!

Welcome to those who are coming from other hops:
