Let’s give a big A-L-O-H-A to our guest blogger, Erin from The Mom Buzz ! This Queen Bee will be bringing us the latest on what’s going on around the blogosphere every Monday! Read on to hear the buzzzzzzz….
Aloha, Ohana Mama Readers! This is just your friendly neighborhood busy bee, ready to buzz the latest and greatest of what’s going on in the blogosphere!
CONTESTS: There are two HUGE contests that all of your readers should know about. First is the BLOG PARTY going on in November, courtesy of MomDot.com. “Fabulous sponsors and fabulous prizes. We want to bring you to new blogs, participate in a few around the blogosphere games and topics, and highlight some online boutiques.”
And the Not-So-Blog is holding a 12 Days of Christmas Give-Away starting on November 28th! Currently the prizes are a surprise, but she will be adding sponsors on her page to give you a hint! Kinda like peeking in your mom’s closet before the gifts are wrapped.
NEW BLOG ALERT: A new blog, My Sentiment ExactLee, is coming out of the starting gates strong with an awesome contest for an Amber Necklace give-away. Amber Necklaces help with teething pains, yours and baby’s, plus have other medicinal properties. I’d enter this contest (wait…I did) and I suggest all you mom bloggers keep an eye out for what else Lee has in store for us!
MEME: The Jolly Mom and Go Graham Go have both started a new meme called Make Something Monday. The idea is to connect to other crafters and showcase your hand-made products. Just imagine what crafty ideas you can come up with!!!
SHOP BLOGGER BOUTIQUES & ETSY: At Bambina Boutique – you can buy prima bowholders for your prima ballerina. These Tutu Bowholders would make a FABULOUS Christmas gift for a little princess or fairy – and if you want one there are only a few days left to order! Currently orders are approximately 15 business days from order to shipping. The last day to guarantee delivery before Christmas to order is Nov 14th.
Coconut Palm Designs is also buzzworthy with this gorgeous name plaque, perfect for a little boy’s nursery or room. The signs are made with Belizean hard or soft woods and can be personalized for your child.
TWITTER: Love Twitter? Want to learn more? Well, visit Pecuniarities, a self-proclaimed, full-fledged Tweeter.

SPOOKY: We’re going to close this big ol’ travel around the blogosphere with the Superficial Gallery. They’ve been featuring 31 Scary Things this month in honor of Halloween. It’s pretty freakin’ funny! Unless you are afraid of clowns – #19 on their list! You can also embed their videos on your sites! So go check it out! I love the werewolf video.
There is SO MUCH more I wanted to talk about, but I’ll just have to save it for later! And if you want to be featured on Ohana Mama’s Buzz Around the Blogosphere – just give me a buzz!
