Time for a Change

For over a year now, I have had a guest blogger each Friday: Blog Friend Feature(BFF).
I love the idea of introducing you to new bloggers. When I decided to do this, I thought hmmmm..... I want to feature a blog friend on Fridays. Featured Blog Friend.... Blog Friend Fridays... Blog Friend Feature. Oh, BFF! Yes, there we go.

But, I recently decided to make a little change.

BFF is no more.

Fridays will still be reserved for a guest.

But, there is going to be a slightly different twist.

On this blog, I share my heart with you. I pour it out. And other days, I vent and whine- but all of the posts you find here are open, honest, and real.

Many of the BFF posts have been much the same way. Not just an introduction to their blog, but posts that really show who they are.

I want more of that: so, on Fridays, it's not the Things *I* Can't Say, but Things They Can't Say.

Which is the guest poster's chance to spill it all on my blog.  Now, don't worry: I don't need a full confessional here. But, I am looking for posts with your open and honest take on motherhood, marriage, work, blogging, friendship, anything really. It just needs to be you: real.

I knew just who I wanted for the very first one and I hope that you will come back and read what she has to say tomorrow.

Huge thanks to my other half, Ashley for coming up with the name of this new feature.

I LOVE this idea and even though I have been your BFF, I might need to use your wonderful space here to say things I CAN'T say on my own site!!

So first I am like "Oh noooooo! Don't get rid of BFF! I love BFF" and then after I got over my pity party I grudglingly have to admit that this may be a good idea.

PS - I am not so good with change.
