Stars Fell On: Disney Donna Kay


Today's guest on Stars Fell on Disney Fans from Alabama is my dear friend Donna Kay from the blog "Disney Donna Kay."  I started following Donna Kay back in March when I stumbled upon one of her old posts following the National Football Championship Game when Auburn beat Oregon.  The post was simply titled "WAR EAGLE!"  I knew I had an instant virtual friend- an Auburn  fan with a Disney blog that contains the words to the Auburn University fight song!  Donna Kay and I instantly connected and have been since that day in March!  Donna Kay lives in Troy, Alabama with her husband and son.  She also has a grown daughter, son in law and granddaughter!  Welcome to my blog Donna Kay!!

First of all I would like to thank Beth for having me as a part of this wonderful series.  I never knew there were so many fabulous Disney bloggers in Alabama, what a great idea! 
I fell in love with Disney when I was 4 years old and I saw Sleeping Beauty.  She was the most beautiful thing I had ever seen, and she's still my favorite Disney Princess today.  Over the years I have seen almost every Disney movie ever made, collected hundreds of Disney Christmas ornaments, and read tons of history about Walt & Roy Disney and the Disney Company.  I started blogging about Disney on November 19, 2010 and found something I truly love to do, but more importantly I found some really great people along the way.  At first my posts were mainly about planning my trip to Walt Disney World this past July.  It evolved into a list I called Disney A-Z which lasted quite a while, then it was on to various lists of favorites.  Once I started to participate in Blog Hops and using social media my blog changed significantly.

The biggest change to Disney Donna Kay was definitely adding Mentoring Mondays.  Each Monday I feature a popular blogger, usually with a Disney connection, who gives tips and advice on blogging.  Along the way I have connected with some wonderful people including our very own Beth of A Disney Mom's Thoughts, Beth of the Magical Blogorail, JL Knopp from The Disney Driven Life and Kaylene Jablecki from the Mom's Panel just to name a few.  If you blog, whether or not it's Disney related, there is a lot of valuable information in the Mentoring Mondays archives.
I still participate in a couple of great Blog Hops each week - Wordless Wednesdays and the Disney Blog Hop, and the posts there continue to inspire me.  I feel very fortunate to be a part of such a wonderful community of people.  Please look for me on Twitter and Facebook as DisneyDonnaKay, I always love meeting new Disney fans.  Thanks again Beth for having me today, but thanks mostly for being such a wonderful friend!

  5. This is such a great series, Beth - great idea! Donna Kay is awesome, but I think she already knows I think that! Her Mentoring Mondays are such a great way to bring the Disney community together and help each other out. I loved her lists too! I enjoyed her top 25 villains. :-)

  7. Deb... how in the world did your son get to Bama? Aren't you from the northeast?? Very cool- even though he did choose the "other school" in Alabama! :)
