The Best Thing…

..about blogging and being a blogger is other bloggers.   I admit to being s bit of a voyeur and I love the glimpse into the lives of others I get through blogging.  I love reading about how other people live, parnt, create, work, manage a marriage and care for their homes.  I’ve learned things, through blogs, that I’d never considered.  I’ve learned to think about things in a new way.

I love blogs and I love bloggers.

So there.

And I have five bloggers to share with you today that may be new to you.  They’ve shared a little about themselves and a link to a post they love.

From the longest list post in the history of list posts 10 things We Wish Someone Had Told Us When We Started Graduate School to the post from yesterday The Basics: Graduate Seminars which offers some advice for surviving and thriving in college and graduate level seminars and tutorials, Anna Blanch often writes about her journey through Graduate School and her life as an ex-pat – she is an Australian living in the St Andrews, Scotland who spent some time living in the heart of Texas! But more than this, Anna, a self described scholar-blogger, explores the relationships between literature and popular culture, religion, theology, and faith. She also writes about Children’s literature and seeks to serve parents who are considering what it means to raise discerning readers!

Kreate by KeKe: a scrapbooking blog by a beginner, for beginners.  I promise this blog will only be about scrapbooking (with an occasional tangential rambling about life here and there).  I promise I will try techniques and teach them to you to the best of my ability.  I promise I will show you how to make a scrapbook that is YOU and friendly on your budget.  I promise to have links to the most fabulous scrapbooking blogs, resources, and supply sites. http://kreatebykeke.blogspot.com/2010/06/dos-donts-etiquette-for-beginner.html is a funny post on the do’s and don’ts for beginner scrapbookers.

Here’s a little bit about my blog , called Strong Personality, at www.jennybradbury.blogspot.com:

I’m a Seattle parent on the brink of a career change.
Strong Personality is my place to share tips & tools that make my busy life easier !


The post is a rant about misuse of Facebook. I would love to hear other people’s take on this issue.

Terri is a wife, mother of 10, grandmother of 2 and an all-around fun person. She writes two blogs and has a novel in progress. She blogs at http://theverylatestthing.blogspot.com/

Spitfire of http://www.spitfiresworld.com says : “I am the daughter of 2, sister of 9, wife of 1, and mother of 2 beautiful girls. I separated from the Air Force the day before I got married, and am currently studying medical transcriptions, as well as learning this awesome world of blogging!

If life is a highway, we all know what the necessary stops are, where the speed bumps are, and where the rest stops are. We can look at our life and find the flat tires, the miles with nothing in sight, and maybe even when the car just stopped working. I want to remind you of the joys of life; the parks, the rainbows off in the distance, the funny town names etc. Anything that makes the ride more smooth, the views more pleasant, and keeps the kids (and you) from asking “are we there yet?”


Don’t they sound wonderful? Please give them a read and be sure to leave them what ever blogger loves best. Comments.
