I love/adore/mildly stalk Grace. A few weeks ago whilst waiting on my doc for a thyroid follow up I started texting Grace some silly blogging related questions. She promptly responded with in-depth and thoughtful answers. Later that day I discovered that she had been dealing with a flooding crisis. Instead of typing NOT NOW KAYLA SUPER BUSY GO AWAY she stopped what she was doing and texted me back. Who even does that?
Five reasons you should be hustling your buns over to The Camp-
|I know that "she's pretty" shouldn't be a reason but I'm putting it out there anyway.|
1. She will make you laugh- Grace has the best sense of humor. Her wit is dry, sarcastic and self-deprecating without being biting. Her ability to make light of the craziness that is motherhood helps me see the ridiculousness and humor in the crap my kids put me through every day and I am able to laugh instead of losing my everloving mind.
2. She can really turn a phrase- You don't have to read much of Grace's writing to see that she's not only funny but clever. And quite the wordsmith. Every once in a while I'll read a phrase on her blog and think, "I need to remember how she worded that. That is amazing."
3. The woman can write a sponsored post- A couple weeks ago, Janssen tweeted the following:
No one writes better sponsored posts than @camppatton. Seriously, I love them.

Have you ever heard someone say they love when a blogger writes sponsored posts? Grace knows how to make sponsored posts enjoyable, engaging and authentic. Even her disclosures are awesome. I replied that bloggers should be required to take a sponsored post class from Grace. I would totally attend that class.
4. I'm pretty sure half of Grace's readership think she's their best friend- Grace is, well...gracious. She responds to comments and emails promptly and with that same self-deprecating humor that makes her blog so enjoyable. She's friendly and accessible in a way that belies how successful her blog has become. She may have Wendy's sponsoring a post but she will still totally write you back when you email her with a parenting quandry.
5. Simon Says/Julia Says- These posts alone are worth the space in your feed reader. I've never met Simon, but if/when I do I need to high-five him. Julia is 1/12 my age and already about a million times funnier than I am. Her teenage years are going to be awesome.
|Hilarious and hilariouser|
