Archive for the ‘Blogs to visit’ Category

I’ve got to give a shout out to Mary Hanson of Blogs of Photogs who recently featured myself and my wife on her web blog.  Now, her blog is actually a review site of photographers’ blogs, so getting a mention there seemed pretty unlikely.  I mean, you’ve seen the pictures here on my site.  While perhaps humorous, I wouldn’t call them awe-inspiring or even technically adequate from a photography sense.  All that magic was created with a point and shoot camera with a caveman at the controls- see, you really can teach chimps to do the work of humans, if you’re willing to invest the time.

I may just have to use Mary’s words as my first real testimonial.  Here’s a bit of what she had to say:

“…so hilariously funny that if this man does not get a paying job as a writer soon I will lose my faith in the literary community. Truly, it is actual laugh out loud funny– pee your pants funny. It is even “I get excited when I see an email from feedburner about it funny.”’

To say I am surprised is an understatement.  My site was originally designed to capture the wacky stuff my boys engage in on a daily basis and then filter it to the extended family so they can remain in touch.  To have someone outside of the Groah/Kocsis clan follow my boys’ adventures, and actually find some enjoyment while doing so, is a huge compliment.  I hope that others will follow along as well.  Because if my strange, funny, sometimes even painful parenting experiences bring a smile to your face and somehow lighten your day then it makes it that much more worthwhile to continue.

Mary, thanks again for the super-cool shout out and sorry about your pants. Maybe you should cut back on the water intake before reading my posts?
