Blog Ownership - Aloha Friday / Friday Memes

Welcome to this week’s edition of Aloha Friday. In Hawaii, Aloha Friday is the day that we take it easy and look forward to the weekend. So I thought that on Fridays I would take it easy on posting, too.

Therefore, I’ll ask a simple question for you to answer. Nothing that requires a lengthy response. If you’d like to participate, just post your own question on your blog and leave your link below. Don’t forget to visit the other participants! It’s a great way to make new bloggy friends!

1. How many blogs do you own?
2. Have you been to a blog conference as yet?

I make my own burgers. And they are double stacked! The kids love the extra veggies. Dh still takes mustard and I always opt for mayonnaise. Now if only he'll let me make his my way :) 

I am also joining in with Friday Follow. So if you happen to visit and follow me, I will definitely be returning the love.

  1. I actually have 4 blogs:
    1. Life in the Boys' Locker Room (main blog)
    2. Workin it...In High Heels (fitness/fashion/beauty/sex)
    3. The Johnson Experiment
    (picture blog for my family back in Hawaii)
    4. Books and Beers
    (this one I co-author with a friend of mine)
    With all those blogs I NEED to be at bloggers anonymous not a conference lol

  2. That's actually a complicated see, I have one that is private which I use to take notes on and set as my browser homepage, 6 blog (yes 6) which I use for an easy way to update my squidoo pages with coupons for Zazzle and CafePress (really, it actually is easier than updated all my Squidoo lenses with them), a couple blogs which are only ideas and are really dead cause I never did anything with them, and then my actual live, fairly well updated ones:


    Scribbleprints (my art shop blog)

    Such Fun to Give (giveaways)


    Oh, and cool that you got to be first on Aloha this week!

  3. i just have this one...
    :) and no conference yet.. although i would love to go to one :)

  4. I actually own two blogs. "Simply Cathi" which is getting a serious facelift and "Kennedy Grace Boutique".
    Last year I went to BlogHer in NYC and had an incredible time with Kailani and Debra (A Frugal Friend) and Beth (The Angel Forever).
    This year I'm going to #DisneySMMoms at Walt Disney World and BlogHer 2011 in San Diego.
    Happy Aloha Friday!!

  5. I have 5 blogs although I haven't updated 4 of them in a very long time. The one I use is Hello, my name is Susan but I do occasionally post on my food blog which is musings in food.

    I would love to go to a conference but not in the cards for awhile.


  6. Thanks for featuring me :-D

    Cakeblast is the only blog I maintain. I used to post about day to day life with my kids on another blog, but have not kept up with it for about two years.

    I have never been to a blogger conference but would love to go to one this year.

  7. I have two, but I haven't wrote in the other in a very long time. I've never been to a blogger conference, but I'd really love to go to one.

  8. I have a few, but I only use one now. I've never been to a conference ... yet.

  9. I have two!
    I have not been to a conference and would have loved to but I'll be moving to Japan here in a few months, so it will be a long while before I get to one.

  10. I have my one blog and then I cohost 2 other reading chalenge blogs for 2011.

  11. Two. One of my cake decorating and one of everything else :)

    I haven'tbeen to a blog conference but they look like a lot of fun!

  12. I used to have two, but I can barely keep up with one, so I deleted the other one.

    I've only been to SITS Bloggy Boot Camp - I was supposed to go to BlogHer last year, but my Father-in-Law was dying and I had to give up my spot. I'm hoping I'll get to go to a full-on bloggy conference in the future!

    Aloha: Super Bowl Plans

  13. I currently have 3 blogs that I try to post in regularly...with plans to start a 4th.
    -Anonynoose contains recipe & craft ideas, Wordless Wednesdays, Music Moves Me Monday, random thoughts and I sometimes record my dreams there.
    -DizzneeMomma is for anything relating to Disney.
    -PhotograMomma is my photo blog that is in its 2nd year now.

    I've been to one conference so far, 2010 Disney Social Media Moms. I tried to get in this year too, but I'm either not considered a Social Media Mom by Disney standards, or there really was a mess up with registration.


  14. I have 3 blogs. My oldest one is just for family and is sort of a scrapbook of our lives. I also run Blog Giveaway Directory. 400 Calorie Dinners is my latest blog. I figure I should be doing something with my nutrition degree :)

    I have never been to a blogging conference but that is one of my goals (along with writing and publishing a cookbook).

  15. Following you from the blog hop!
    Love the information, you have here!
    Please come check my blog out at
    Have a great day!

  16. This is an interesting question because I actually have several, but this is the only one I blog on.

    I have Mission Skinny Deni and also one I use to just vent but never save the post.

    I have a xanga one and used to have a live journal!

    I have never been to a blogging conference. I just blog for the fun of it so I don't know if I would like to go or not. I am not trying to make money off my blog or anything, ya know?

  17. I have 1 blog Thrifty & Chic Mom and I am going to my first conference this May Reviewer's Retreat I am so excited my whole family is going since it is at Great Wolf Lodge.

  18. I own 2 blogs:
    main blog:

    postcard blog:

    and I also help out with

  19. I guess technically I have four blogs, but I only maintain two regularly. I've never been a to a blogging conference, not sure it's in the cards for me.

  20. I did maintain 4 but I'm down to 1. I have not been to a conference yet.

  21. I have two Self Sagacity and Blogger Broadcast
    I started them one year after the other with something in mind, but eventually, they just take their own shape and become their own individual blogs.
    No, I haven't been to a conference. Not unless I can take my family too.

  22. I have 2 blogs: Becca's Backyard (my main blog) and Becca's Contest List (self-explanatory). I haven't been to a blog conference yet!

  24. just testing.
    Want to know how to put a link in with words like everyone else can do.

  25. How funny! I have burgers on my blog today too, except mine are veggie burgers. hee hee

    I only have one blog, Run DMT. I would LOVE to go a blog conference, but I just can't afford the air fare, hotel and conference fees. Oh well. Some day. Maybe one will come to Tampa! A few years back, Blogher hosted mini-meetups and one was help in Tampa. That was a lot of fun. It was really cool to connect and meet bloggers in the real world.

    You can read about it here:

    Thanks so much for the Friday Food Fight shout out. You are such a doll! :-)

  26. I have 2 blogs. One that I am just starting on. I haven't had the chance or funds to attend a conference yet and am a little overwhelmed at the idea of getting sponsors.

    I only have one blog...
    Keeping Up With The Rheinlander's
    and NO I have not been to any conferences... yet!

  29. I have two. I had three but merged two into one because I did not have time to do all three justice, you see I have a big family (1 husband, 4 children, 2 steps, 27 grands & 3 great grands) work full time and write at multiple sites. I love sewing and other crafts too. We are women - hear us roar. lol

    Wanted to tell you we should not mistake kindness for weakness either. :-) Thanks for the visit. Take care and God bless.

  30. I only have one blog! I don't think I can manage more than!! And I have not been to blog conference, but I would love to one day!

  31. I have just the one blog! I have contributed to another and have been asked for contribution to two others but right now am trying to make one successful! :)

    No, conferences yet! I am signed up to go to Bloggy Bootcamp in Seattle in June. Looking forward to it.

    Happy Birthday my friend! :)

  32. I have two blogs but am currently only just working on the one. I've just started both of them recently and I'm actually going to try and combine them. I haven't done a conference yet but last night I read about one that I think sounds great and very helpful and I'm going to try and do it!

    Your burgers look GREAT!
    I'm following you from the Fun Follow Friday! I'd love for you to return the favor and follow back! :)

  33. My husband and I each have our own blogs. I also am a contributing writer to two other blogs. Yes, I have been to Disney Social Media Moms Celebration and BlogHer.

  34. I owe 4 blogs and they are all active. However, I've never been to a blog conference before.

  35. Sewing machines:

    I have a GENOME which I like a lot, and it may suit better for clothing vs crafts.
    Their website:

  36. I have 4 public, 2 private. I'd love to someday make it to a blogger conference too:) Happy Saturday!

  40. Wow, first off I didn't realize how many follow friday memes were out there!

    I have 2 blogs, but one is just for my jewelry which barely gets any love. I'm horrible at posting there.

    I haven't been to a conference, but I was to an even with Sam's Club and that was pretty cool.
