Favorite Blogs

Isn't blogging an interesting thing? Who would have thought that millions of us would be so intent on reading other people's thoughts and even checking in for stories about families we don't even know...reading journals of people we've never met! Of course the best ones are the blogs of people we know and love. It is a great way to keep in touch and get to know each other better. I didn't think I would ever do it. It is hard for me to write about myself publicly! But I love the connections I've made through it and the feeling of camaraderie! Thanks so much to everyone who comments! It totally makes my day and makes it easier!

These are the blogs I check most often:
Suz - a funny and unique take on life.
Kara - friendly, personable and fun
Jana - also friendly, personable and fun- I love you two!
Jo - I love reading about my sister and her kids
Eric and Tiff - keeping up with my brother and his cute wife
Kristen - my great friend from college who has the cutest family and lives in France!

They are people I know and love to read about! Below is a list of blogs I read that I love but usually just wait for them to show up on my feedblitz.

My Happy Little Life - this one really inspires me sometimes - I really like some of her views on life.
Confessions of a Pioneer Woman - This lady can really make me laugh and is a good writer.
takiyaje - It isn't even in English but who can resist this? She makes the most amazing dolls and stuffed things!
Wee Wonderfuls - Wonderful crafty blog. I really want to make this from her patterns!
Sew Mama Sew - Lots of crafty goodness to be had here as well as sewing tutorials!
Posie Gets Cozy - A warm and homey type blog.
Stitches and Seams - A great seamstress.
Feeling Stitchy - Fun embroidery stuff.
Angry Chicken - Sewing, crafting, cooking, etc.
Mika - I like this guy's personality, voice and some of his songs.
Funky & Delightful - crafting, sewing, cooking..
How About Orange - sewing, crafting, designing, and other interesting stuff.

There are actually more, but these are maybe my top ones. If you can't tell, when I don't have the energy to craft and sew, I like to read about it!

I feel so privileged to be on your list. And it has been a treat to read so many of your entries this month. I have to say that the Mindless Ramblings of a Crazy person really catches my eye and she does have a great and humorous take on life (I usually don't read blogs of people I don't know, but when I saw the titles I couldn't resist).

I love Kristen's comment. She's totally right about Suz's blog. I should clarify that my top five are in general, not including the NABLOPOMO month. Because I love love love reading yours and Suz's blogs every day. you guys do such an excellent job and they are always truly enjoyable. But before Nov, it wasn't worth checking yours as often as the others that I knew whould have been more likely to post. You know what I'm saying?? So I hope you know yours is at the top of the list!!
