German Girl’s Ponderings

by Dagmar Bleasdale on January 2, 2011

After discovering a whole site full of blogs written by expats and adding a category for German blogs or blogs written by Americans who now live in Germany to my blogroll, I’m kind of on a Germany kick.

I never before considered making my being from Germany a big part of my blog, but why not? Even though I’m so Americanized and English has become my first language, I enjoy finding blog posts about Germany that remind me of my life in there. I figure you’d enjoy them, too, so I might as well share what I’m reading.

I loved writing my recent blog post about remembering my childhood in Germany after discovery some great winter pictures of Germany. And I definitely want to write more about how difficult it is to raise Landon bilingually. So don’t be surprised if you see a “Germany” page pop up on Dagmar’s momsense soon.

As I mentioned in my Year in Review post, I have a lot of exiting, new ideas for this blog for 2011, and that just might be one of them.

For now, there is this:

Carlotta from Pastor’s Girl’s Ponderings — love the girl, the name, the fact that she has a German background, and her beautiful blog full off amazing photographs — asked this in one of her latest posts:

“Is there a photo that makes you happy? One that warms your heart or tells a funny story? One that puts you on cloud nine?”

Carlotta, here is my addition, a picture of my little boy having a blast in the snow. There is nothing better in life than seeing this special boy laugh.

Do you want to share a special photo? Then head over to Carlotta’s blog and link up to this post.

This will definitely be an interesting addition to your blog! I can’t wait to see more, Dagmar. :)

There are a couple of blogs that I read by Americans living in Germany:

I also like to read a German attachment parenting blog. You can find it at:

I had a chance to meet the 50% of my DNA and Windelfrei blog authors while I was living in Berlin.
