A Fond Farewell

After much consideration, we have made the difficult decision to bring Words of Wisdom to an end. It has been an honor to meet so many deserving Bloggers of Note and other wonderful bloggers of substance. However, interest in WOW has been waning in recent months and we are also finding it more and more difficult to maintain the level of commitment it takes to run it.

We have truly enjoyed our time as WOW's administrators. We sincerely hope, that through participation in WOW, you have found other like minded bloggers of substance. If so, we feel we have achieved our main goal.

Best of luck to you all as you continue your journey in the blogosphere. We are so pleased to have taken a small part of that journey with you.

Simplicity, Frugality, Frivolity

Would you like to be highlighted or do you know someone who deserves to be BON? Contact us at ourwordsofwisdom@gmail.com and let us know.

Today's Blogger of Note is Sofia's Ideas.

Sofia's Ideas


I was told that I was the type of person that could think of more ideas in 3 minutes than anyone could ever possibly execute in 3 years! As I look back on my life, and reminisce about all of the ideas I’ve had (both lost & tossed), I realize the one thing that's been a constant for me is writing. I guess blogging just seems like it might be a good fit.

Right now, I’m passionate about moving my family towards a more simple, frugal, and green existence... Hence,
Sofia’s Ideas on Simplicity, Frugality, and Frivolity, all with an Eco-mentality.

Happy reading,

Beautifully Imperfect

Would you like to be highlighted or do you know someone who deserves to be BON? Contact us at ourwordsofwisdom@gmail.com and let us know.

Today's Blogger of Note is Beauty and Imperfection.

Take a daily journey into the beautifully imperfect inner world of a disillusioned former social worker, avid journaler, aspiring writer, art cinema lover, appreciator of all things beautiful, and sometimes whiner. As you read Beauty and Imperfection you may find some piece of yourself within my words; in those moments we have the opportunity to connect on a deeper level and support each other on this sometimes ugly, but often beautiful journey of life.

For the Love of Writing

Would you like to be highlighted or do you know someone who deserves to be BON? Contact us at ourwordsofwisdom@gmail.com and let us know.

Today's Blogger of Note is Resonate.

Hello to all. What can I say other than I love writing, and started researching blogs specifically looking for original writes and poets about a year ago? Rather than give you my academic resume for a detailed history of how I arrived at writing. I hope the content of my Blog speaks for itself. However, I will say the focus of my blog has been poetry and shorter verse. I do touch on autobiography, philosophy, humor and other subject matter occasionally. I am currently looking for a publisher for a children's book and a novella. If I don't have any luck finding a publisher I will make the same leap that so many others fine writers have made lately and discover the self publishing process. Hopefully my blog continues to help me find and communicate with like minded writers, poets, artists, and along the way pushes me to produce a wider variety of good writing. I hope you are moved or inspired by my work. I hope to be moved by yours as well.

Embracing Imperfection

Would you like to be highlighted or do you know someone who deserves to be BON? Contact us at ourwordsofwisdom@gmail.com and let us know.

Today's Blogger of Note is Imperfect People in Love with a Perfect God.


Imperfect People is created to encourage each other that none of us are perfect yet we know our creator is. Knowing the love of Christ can fill the void of "not good enough" in so many areas. We compare ourselves to our friends, our neighbors, and everyone we meet yet not one of us have it all figured out. It's time we celebrate our strengths instead of dwelling on our weaknesses. It's time to encourage each other and celebrate our friends triumphs instead of harboring jealousy.

What I write about...

An Experiment in Spirituality

Would you like to be highlighted or do you know someone who deserves to be BON? Contact us at ourwordsofwisdom@gmail.com and let us know.

Today's Blogger of Note is Pathway to Enlightenment.

I consider myself an average type of person (well, sort of). I have a great career, engaging hobbies, a loving wife, child, friends and extended family – it should be enough to live a satisfying life. But somehow, somewhere along the way, the voice in my heart called me along on a new pilgrimage, an adventure to discover who I truly am. As Carl Jung wrote, at some point in our lives “the glowing coals of consciousness buried deep within the personality begin to break into flames.”

My website is an invitation for you to come along on my journey to live with intention as I discover, by practice, trial and error, how to foster my body, mind, heart and soul through Sacred Disciplines. So please, pull up a chair – the fire is raging!

Writing from the Heart...and Soul

Would you like to be highlighted or do you know someone who deserves to be BON? Contact us at ourwordsofwisdom@gmail.com and let us know.

Today's Blogger of Note is Stranger Than Diction.

I began my 'Stranger Than Diction' blog when I realized I wanted somebody besides me and my family to read my original story 'More Than A Feeling' whose characters are loosely based on myself, my husband, my son and his friends who are very much a part fo our family.
I hope you enjoy the mother-daughter team of Marianne and Susie -- as well as the O'Neil brothers and the rest of the cast -- and that you enjoy visiting the fictional southern California seaside town of Aigean Bay, Ca. in 1978.
From there the story will continue to evolve and we'll just have to see where these characters go in life.
Will 12 year old Susie grow up and realize her dream of one day marrying the much older Murphy O'Neil?

Today's Blogger of Note is The Year of Living Virtuously (Weekends Off)

When Benjamin Franklin was in his twenties, he devised a list of thirteen virtues he intended to master. In his dotage, he viewed his youthful hubris with affection, noting that “I was surpris’d to find myself so much fuller of faults than I had imagined.”


Teresa is in midlife and has no illusion that moral perfection is within her grasp, but she's long been fascinated by how virtue and vice play out in our daily struggles. Hence, her year-long meditation on the search for meaning in an ordinary life.

A Daughter's Point of View

Would you like to be highlighted or do you know someone who deserves to be BON? Contact us at ourwordsofwisdom@gmail.com and let us know.

Today's Blogger of Note is Go Ask Alice...when she's 94.

I read a lot of blogs, and many of those I like are written by caregivers. They are invaluable to me and help me gain perspective on what it means to be at this stage of life where taking care of my mother is a big part of what I do every day. However, Go Ask Alice...When She's 94 is not so much about my experience as it is about Alice's. I like sharing stories about spending time with my mother because she's rich in character, dignity, wit, and the kind of smarts you need in order to get to your ninth decade and still find things in life to enjoy.

I hope you like finding out about Alice, her sisters, her friends and her impossible romance with the man she calls Mr. Fickle.

We Know You're Out There!

In just seven months since beginning Words of Wisdom we have featured over 80 Bloggers of Note, and we couldn't be more pleased.

Most of our BONs, as they've come to be called, came to us on their own but many were nominated by others. The variety of writing styles and blog formats has been amazing. We have definitely tapped into a great reservoir of talent and been able to share it.

As of this writing we have many bloggers in line who will be featured in the upcoming weeks and months. But we want more! We want to see WOW continue to grow.

If this is your first time visiting Words of Wisdom and you're wondering what we are about, WOW is a place for bloggers who enjoy reading and writing great content to find each other.

By great content we mean blog posts that are thought-provoking and/or insightful. Blog posts that make the reader stop and think and maybe even feel compelled to "join the conversation" by leaving a well thought-out comment. These posts can be serious or humorous. They can be about any topic. But what they have in common is content. Great content.

So if you are a "blogger of substance" and would like to be featured, send us an email and tell us about your blog.

If you know a blogger who deserves to be highlighted as Blogger of Note, please email us with a link to their blog and we'll do the rest.

As always we appreciate your comments and suggestions and look forward to bringing you more "Bloggers of Note."

Looking for a Few Good Blogs

In just seven months since beginning Words of Wisdom we have featured over 80 Bloggers of Note, and we couldn't be more pleased.

Most of our BONs, as they've come to be called, came to us on their own but many were nominated by others. The variety of writing styles and blog formats has been amazing. We have definitely tapped into a great reservoir of talent and been able to share it.

As of this writing we have many bloggers in line who will be featured in the upcoming weeks and months. But we want more! We want to see WOW continue to grow.

If this is your first time visiting Words of Wisdom and you're wondering what we are about, WOW is a place for bloggers who enjoy reading and writing great content to find each other.

By great content we mean blog posts that are thought-provoking and/or insightful. Blog posts that make the reader stop and think and maybe even feel compelled to "join the conversation" by leaving a well thought-out comment. These posts can be serious or humorous. They can be about any topic. But what they have in common is content. Great content.

So if you are a "blogger of substance" and would like to be featured, send us an email and tell us about your blog.

If you know a blogger who deserves to be highlighted as Blogger of Note, please email us with a link to their blog and we'll do the rest.

As always we appreciate your comments and suggestions and look forward to bringing you more "Bloggers of Note."
