I'm thrilled you're taking part in Blog Hop '09, I hope you all meet wonderful new blog mates with whom you can tweet and comment to and one day meet In Real Life…but until then, let's get to know each other virtually better.
Who is Robin at PENSIEVE? She's ~
- married to her college sweetheart
- mom to a teen daughter, teen son and a tween son
- a copycat of Jesus
- a dreamer
- a writer
- a photographer
- a lover of simple things
- inspired by the beach and the majesty of Creation in general
- a sometimes poet
- a former marketing and PR professional
- an above average cook
- a below average ironer (and I've got the scars to prove it)
Because of blogging, I've met amazing people, some famous, others infamous…and the rest somewhere in between.
My greatest delights in blogging are to encourage others and to use my voice for those who have none, and that was perhaps best embodied in my recent trip to India with Compassion International. There, I observed Compassion's work, witnessed the tangible difference it makes in the lives of sponsored children and their families, and now do whatever I can to persuade others to begin sponsorship…altering the future of a child living in extreme poverty.
Even now, I can't help but ask you to click the blue link in my right side bar and at least learn more about Compassion. 🙂
As a personal "giveaway", if any Blog Hopper decides to change history by sponsoring a child, I'll pay for one month ($38) (limited to the first person who lets me know, though I wish I could do this for many!)
Again, thanks for reading and taking part in Blog Hop '09…I am blessed by your enthusiasm and response.

Thanks for hosting this party! (It’s my first Hop!)
Hey! I was going down the 1’s list and figured I’d better go back here and comment! Thanks for hosting this awesome party. Lotsa fun. I will be reading in the future! Oh and I think there is probably a good chance we’ll meet IRL someday.
Hi Robin – Greetings from #21 – From Inmates To Playdates!!! Thanks for the Shin-Dig!!! Oh, and I love the idea of visiting each of the (in my case) 1’s! 😉
Thanks for the feedback; I just know how it is to be the "middle of the pack" and you kind of get skimmed over; this was my solution to trying to avoid that! 🙂 Thanks for your visit!!
Hi Robin! Nice to meet you! 🙂
I loved the BlogHop last year, so glad it is happening again!
I don’t think I was blogging yet when you started this last year. I’m delighted to be a part of it this year! I think I stumbled across your blog in a carnival once upon a time and have had it bookmarked since then. So nice to meet you in this way too! 🙂
thanks so much for hosting!
Yay! This is fun already!
Now..how do I make myself go to bed tonight?
I too think that visiting the same last number idea is INSPIRED! This is my first BlogHop and I’m psyched up and ready to hop. How fun is this!
Looking forward to the BlogHop!
Thank you so much for doing the Blog Hop! This is my first time and I really look forward to visiting as many as I can over the coming weekend!
I have read much about Compassion and the wonderful work they do. I do so hope to sponsor a child in the future, but just can’t now. Your giveaway is a wonderful way to get someone involved in this great program!
Happy blog hopping to you too!
Thanks for doing this ladies – It is nice to know you aren’t alone.
Looking forward to learning about Compassion – I have seen the buttons on other sites before. Thanks again!!
I’m finally getting some time to start blog hopping ~ it’s such a crazy week for me!! Thank you for linking up to BlogNerd.
Regarding Compassion ~ I want to do it. I don’t care if I’m the first and get the free month or not ~ I want to do it!!!! So, if you could please email me or contact me somehow to let me know a little bit about it. My husband and I are going to sit down together on Sunday night and choose our kid and sign up!
I AM SOOOOOOOOO EXCITED! I think this will make me feel so good inside 🙂
I nearly missed this hop…I happened to be catching up with my sister-in-law’s blog and she was hopping.
So fun! Thank You!
#61 here – I know it’s morning but I stopped hopping last night when my husband got home from hockey. I just wanted to stop by and say how much I enjoyed meeting you and also to thank you for running the Blog Hop. Such a cool idea! Thanks!
You, my dear, host a great par-tay! So fun to be able to meet you!
Oh, irons and I don’t get along too well either. 😀
You left out fabulous friend and diva extraordinaire!!!!!
I’ve been following you on Twitter & lurking on your blog for a while now, nice to learn a little more about you. Thanks for doing this Blog Hop. Looks like it’ll be a lot of fun!
Oh, and I agree wholeheartedly about Compassion. I sponsor a young girl in Haiti through Compassion and can not tell you the joy that her letters bring to me. It’s such an amazing thing!

thank you also for encouraging us to partner with Compassion! such a worthy cause! 🙂
Oh my goodness. I love that picture of you. Oh my heart, you got to go there and see with your eyes.
That picture of you with the children is amazing!

Hi! You are #1 in my 1’s blogs to visit but I’m coming to you last since I already “know” you a little bit. This has been fun – I’ve visited a lot of bloggers I would ordinarily never have come across! Thanks for hosting!
