A Blogger with the Soul of a Poet


Today's Blogger of Note is A Shelter From the Storm

We love the quotes of Kris' posts, they always make you pause and think, plus she’s got a 36-year marriage which would make any of us envious. Kris is an energetic lady who has been blogging for years and has never lost sight of the fact that great content is what it's all about. Oh, and she takes care of her two preschool aged grandchildren. Did we mention she has a lot of energy.

Happy Reading,

Pam and Sandy

  2. I also love love the name of her blog. And poet, you say? Will have to check her out. Love poems but poems. Sadly, poems don't get much love from bloggers.

  5. I have been following MissKriss' "Shelter" blog ever since I happened upon it in the Elder Blog list at another thought-provoking blog, As Time Goes By. I am the mother of two grown sons, and Miss Kriss' chronicles of her experiences with her "grandboys" are so true and touching. Her poems are not her only poetry. Her approach to life is poetry of spirit. Thanks for featuring her blog!

  13. Going to check out todays 'BON'!

    Yesterday Elle (over at 'A For Effort') and I both posted about 'WOW' (in fact, it was through her that I learned about you all) in the hopes it will pick up the momentum it deserves.

    Just checking in to wish everyone happy camel day!

    Peace and serenity,

  14. Sounds like a great blogger.

    I wonder if she can bottle up some of that energy and sell it on Etsy!

    ReplyDelete
  15. This is a fantastic concept! Kudos to the two of you for finding a need and running with an idea.

    I don't know if I'm content worthy (we talk a lot about shoes and general weirdness), but I'll be following!

    ReplyDelete
  16. I, too, love the name. And just like Karen, if Kris were to sell her energy on Etsy, I'd be all over that!

    Congrats, Kris. Kudos to Sandy and Pam for another great pick!

  17. She seems fabulous. I'm loving this little community already :D

  18. What an amazing writer. I truly enjoyed reading her posts.

  19. Miss Kriss had a great line: "On good days I'm an extroverted introvert. On bad days, an introverted extrovert."

    Resonated; I have such good and bad days.

  20. I love the quotes that she selects to post on her blog!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Her blog, and her writing, are beautiful. GREAT BON!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. What a great choice for BON! I love how passionate she is about writing!

  23. To those of you who've stopped by so far and been kind enough to leave comments both on my blog and on here...well, I am truly overwhelmed! Even tho I have a lot of healthy traffic I have never been blessed with a lot of commenters. I can't even get them to come out on Delurking days, haha! When I bemoaned the fact once, one of my 'regular' commenters spoke up and told me, "It's because you make us THINK, Kris, and so often after reading what you have to say, there isn't anything left to add. But many times I've found myself thinking about what you've written all day." So...that pretty much shut me up. As my schedule allows...I've had my grandboys for 12 hours each the past two days...I plan on returning the courtesy and stopping by to see each and every one of you. Thank you all for making my day so special!

  24. I really enjoyed visiting her blog. However, I was hoping to follow her, but I didn't see the option in her sidebar. :(

    ReplyDelete
  25. What can I add? I'm looking forward in participating in this community of WOW readers. I'm due for a dose of wisdom. I was waiting for menopause to infuse me with special powers of knowledge and seriousness but all it did was to make me more cranky. Maybe this is where I will get some inspiration... Congrats to Pam and Sandy!

  26. Multiple thank-yous to Pam and Sandy for starting this blog to highlight substantive-content bloggers. I'd been reading Kris for quite a while and am pleased that her site directed me to this new one. I'll be checking in regularly and look forward to bunches of new blogs to read!

  27. I haven't liked the concept of having the Follower gadget on my blog...too much clutter in the sidebar and too much like popularity in high school! It used to be the Blogger toolbar at the top of a blog template had a "Follow this Blog" or some-such button but it no longer does...I looked before I came here to write this after reading Lauren's comment above. I REALLY don't want to add one but I will if others request it, too. I went to check my Followers on my Dashboard and 3 more have added themselves somehow...but I'm clueless as to how to do it. WOW is the only blog I've ever signed up to follow so I apologize for not being any fount of information!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Hmmmmm...interesting! When I went back to my blog and refreshed the page, the "Follow" button WAS at the top on my Blogger toolbar. So when you come to visit and if you feel like following, maybe the fickle thing will be there for you, haha!

  29. One thing you'll find out about me is I AM a chatterbox. But actually quite quiet in 'real' life. Go figure.

  30. I just checked out Kris' blog and not only is it well written but it exudes peacefulness. I can't think of a better compliment!

  35. Hey everyone. I wanted to respond to Jo's comment in case there are other people who are wondering about today's BON. For right now, while WOW is growing, we will be featuring a new BON on MWF. We want to insure that all BON get as many readers as possible. The interest in being highlighted as BON has been amazing and we do anticipate going to M-F BONs in the near future. And please let us know if you would like to be BON. Without your participation, WOW can not succeed.

  36. Hi

    I am happy to join up, what a great way to get blogs out to the masses rather than people giving up their blog due to a lack of views and comments.

    ReplyDelete
  37. I just found you and I'm thrilled to get in on the conversation. I try to keep the content meaningful on my blog and have been looking for more great blogs to read. Thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Kris of "A Shelter From the Storm" is TRULY deserving of this commendation! My personal email correspondence with her is something I treasure--what she writes is always fascinating, whether it concerns day to day details or profound bits of wisdom. Yeah, Kris!!!
