Whenever we read a blog and see the author’s sense of humor, we often return to read more.  This New Blog Of The Week (NBOTW) keeps you coming back.

A great place to get you started with this blog, is to listen to some of the songs she wrote.  My favorite is titled:”Wedgie Wedding”. What’s great about listening to her music is you not only learn more about her personality, but you also get to hear her sweet voice.

Hop over to her “About” page where she shares:

Welcome to my “nicheless niche of a blog.”…..I write songs, yodel from rooftops, do cartwheels in the produce aisles and blog……I think the mind’s the limit and I know I’ll be blogging until I am no longer physically able to do so!

Those are powerful words: “I think the mind’s the limit”. She definitely has the right attitude.

When you read her posts, she freely shares her views and experiences. In her post titled “Ten Honest Things” she reveals,

I once hid the above [see photo in post] ”It’s Haunted” book for a week when Kelly [her daughter] was two. Just couldn’t hack one single second more of it. Sorry.

It’s hard to categorize this blog except to say it’s a joy to read. In each post she shares more of herself and more of her thoughts. She makes us think and inspires us to comment.

Without further ado, I present Jannie of Jannie Funster.com, with a tag line that reads, “now with less eyeball but more brow”. Confused? Dig through her archives and you’ll find the answer.

Please join me in re-welcoming Jannie to the BWAB community.

Enjoy your reign Jannie.

Your tiara’s in the mail. 🙂

    Awesome, awesome choice Barbara!!

    Jannie, I love your site! I think it’s the way you mix in humor into your writing. Or the way you shared something personal in your writing. In any rate, it’s a great mix you’ve created, and I find myself coming back again and again!

    This is SO cool! You are amazing Jannie Funster (I love that name!!)! Enjoy your reign here…

    Brilliant choice Barbara – I love Jannie’s blog. She writes some amazing poetry too. And she also talks about some hilarious stuff – do you remember the bra flinging post she wrote a few weeks ago?

    Oh. My. God.

    I cannot believe you picked ME. My first reaction is to hail you like Wayne & Garth to Alice Cooper in “Waynes World,” with “I’m not worthy. I’m not worthy.” But gee, I’ll try to get over it.

    Thank you, Barbara. I am more than honored. I think your blog is ace, as are all your wonderful readers, and am humbled you would think of me.

    Not sure what else to say so I’ll go fling my bra now. ; )

    P.S. I was so looking for a tiara to go with my new blue chiffon for the cod fishing tournament I’ll be participating in next month. THANKS!

    Congrats Jannie!

    Now I want to read “It’s Haunted.” I’ve always had a thing for haunted houses.

    I agree – the mind’s the limit – and we’re our own best cork or catapult.

    Hi Jannie – Yep, you’re the one! And…you are worthy!

    Wow! What a joy to have Jannie the new blog of the week. She just emailed me her song “I need a man” and it is just perfect and her voice is lovely…

    I am so happy I found Jannie and that she found me….and her commenters are equally fun – she just brings out the humor and lightens the spirit and sincerely cares…

    the mind is the limit….awesome idea
