Run DMT - I'm a mom on the run!

Don’t Stop the Music and the Party

rundmt musicmondayparty1 Dont Stop the Music and the PartyTwo years ago when I injured myself after a bad bike crash, I needed something to keep my mind off the pain and to keep my blog active even though I wasn’t. I wrote a Music Monday post and linked up at Diane of Mourning Glory’s Music Monday blog hop.

I discovered incorporating music into a blog post was a wonderful way to express myself.  It became another meaningful way to share my thoughts and a means to share my story.

During Diane’s Music Monday blog hop, I also discovered some really great bloggers as well as great music.  What started as a means to fill empty space on my blog became a way to fill my MP3 player.  By visiting all the Music Monday participants, I found tons of music that truly moved me and helped push me through the miles as I ran.

Wanting to continue my quest to find music to move through the miles and because I loved the Music Monday blog hop concept so much, I decided to jump in and host one too.

For a year now, I’ve been hosting Music Monday.  It’s been a great experience once again discovering new-to-me bloggers and reconnecting through music with some of already favorite bloggers.  Of course, with each passing Music Monday, you’re all now my favorite bloggers!

For the past year, I’ve enjoyed listening to your stories.  I hope you’ve enjoyed listening to mine.  So please don’t stop sharing your songs.  Please don’t stop the music!


Please know that I am so grateful for all the Music Monday participants each week and every comment shared.  So let’s keep Run DMT’s Music Monday going strong for another year.  Keep linking up and sharing your songs with me each week.  Don’t stop the party!



And to keep the party going strong and to show my gratitude, one lucky Music Monday participant will win a $15 iTunes card.  So link up and play along for you chance to win!

Thank you for all your love and support!denise 40 gawsimplecooltext1 Dont Stop the Music and the Party

    Music is part of our lives everyday. Without it life seems so boring, it gives us some energy to move. Like those music you’ve posted, it’s really a party music. Everybody can dance to its beat.
