Bloggers with Heart

The blogger world – or “blogspehere” as some call it – has a heart. A BIG heart. I read blogs (almost) daily and I have come across several blog writers (from magazine columnists to photographers) who are writing and financially supporting a fellow blogger. Her name is Stephanie Nielson and she and her husband, Christian, were seriously injured in a private plane crash in August of this year. This couple (and the blog) has also been highlighted in the New York Times.
I have recently become a reader of Stephanie’s blog, the Nie Nie Dialogues, and have also began reading her sister’s blog, C Jane Enjoy It, to get to know their family better and get updates on the recovery. Both sisters have very entertaining and pro-family blogs. Many people who are supporting and reading Stephanie’s blog have commented on the fact that Stephanie makes women want to be better mothers and wives. She inspires them to be better “homemakers” in all senses of the word. If you know me at all you know that this type of inspiration is generally not something I am inspired by, but these blogs have caught my attention. They are definitely worth a read and seeing the blog community come together has been an inspiration all in itself.
