Ultimate Blog Party 2010

Ultimate Blog Party 2010

It's party time! 5 Minutes for Moms is hosting their annual blog party. I participated two years ago but didn't participate last year. It was a fun and great way to meet new bloggers so I thought I'd give it a try again. Kick off your shoes (or slippers), grab a cupcake and a soda, and learn a little bit about Coley's Corner.

For the newbies visiting Coley's Corner, let me tell you a little bit about myself. My name is actually Nicole but most of my friends call me Coley, so you can too!

I'm married to the love of my life, J, and we'll be celebrating our 7th anniversary this month! Together we are raising my son, Noah, who is thirteen. Noah has cerebral palsy, epilepsy, ADD, severe scoliosis, and is borderline autistic. Noah will be having a big, brutal surgery this summer so please keep him in your thoughts and prayers and feel free to check back for updates. Noah is definitely a handful but he's a heart full too! We live in the South where I'm a stay at home Mom, free lancer writer, and photographer

I actually got addicted to blogging my reading them first and finally said, "Hey, I want one too!" Thus, Coley's Corner was born. It's basically just a mish mosh of posts that mean something to me such as venting about raising a child with special needs, sharing a tutorial on a craft projet, sharing a meaningful quote, or participating in a photo challenge. And sometimes I even re-discover myself through my writings here!

I've made many friends through blogging and maybe I'll make a few more through this blog party. Leave me a comment and let me know where your home on the web is and I'll pop by. 

Thanks for visiting! 


  1. Good morning! Stopping by from the blog party. Love the look of your blog and it looks like you have a wonderful family. I said a quick prayer for Noah.

  2. I just linked up my post and your name jumped out at me from the list (having just visited here for the first time on Wednesday)!

    Since it's not quite 8AM, I'm munching on apple cider and an English muffin, but the cupcake and soda sure sound good too. :)

    Enjoy the blog party!

  3. Coley, I love your blog cute! I really enjoy the way you write and cannot wait to read more.

  4. Hi Coley! My name is Bridgette but people call me Bridge (LOL)and I'm coming from UBP. I follow you on Google now. I can relate to you. I am a full-time step-mother to a special needs child-lots of work!
    Feel free to stop by my blog!

  5. Shelly, Thanks. It's a pre-made layout from The Cutest Blog on the Block that I just tweaked a bit to make it more unique.

    Trish, apple cider and muffins sound good too!

    Thanks, y'all for stopping by!

  6. Hi Coley (love your name btw) - I'll say a little prayer for your little man, Noah. I'll be watching and praying for you all.

  9. Just stopping by from the UBP at Five Minutes for Mom. I can't believe it is the last day! You have a great site. I would love it if you visited my blog and left me a comment! I'm looking forward to reading more and getting to know you better.
