Blogs and blogging

I have a fair number of blogs down on my reading list, and a lot more on my bookmarked list. I have an eclectic taste in reading (books) and this appears to translate into blogs as well.

So if you haven't made it through some of my links, here are some reasons to do so :

A Cowboy's Wife - Barb is a funny, intelligent woman and can make an awesome apple pie.

Old Age is a Bitch - Elaine's life in blog form, and gently humourous. I want to grow old as gracefully as she is.

Dickiebo - an ex-policeman with a wicked sense of humour

Jam and Clotted Cream - Beth from Cornwall - love her recipes (and so does SOH)

Somerset Seasons - Dorset Days - Leanne's daily blog of life with poetry and pictures to delight

Rev Ruth - Life in the Parish of Ruth

Get out of Jail Free - Annedroid a master of chaplaincy in today's prisons - makes you think of how prisons are not just for prisoners.

Random Acts of Reality - Tom's insight into the life and times of an EMT in London - well written and thought provoking.

Naturewitch - a gardener, and naturalist from Canberra Australia

32 Aker Wood - Janet's adventures with the Mountain Man, The Queen and DeBoy at the back of beyond; a soulmate

Zeltus - the big brother of mine, living the life in France with his wife and two Parson Jack Russell Terriers

I aspire to be like some of these brilliant blog writers I have linked above, and the many others I like to visit but are too numerous to mention. So what, and who inspires you to be something you are not at the moment?

Where do you go to when you travel the blogosphere? tell me and I will attempt to visit them all.

I've been some of the places you recommended and will definitely hightail it to the others. My list of whom I visit is on my roll, although I'll occasionally veer from that path into unknown worlds when those whom I read regularly link to someone new. Actually that's how I have such a long list. Almost everyone I read now is someone I found on someone else's blog. Some are because they commented on my blog.

Pretty much without exception every blog I read makes me feel rather inadequate as a writer, but since I don't aspire to write the Next Great Novel, or even the Next Great Blog post, I can live with that. But I do try to be humorous and interesting so people come back because they want to and not because they feel obligated.

Awww, thank you for mentioning me. I'm touched. I love the variety of blogs don't you - the different lives and lifestyles from anywhere in the world. It's such a privilege and a joy to read them. I'll visit those of your list here that I haven't already.

Wow, Sage! Thank you for the compliments, but I don't feel worthy of them.
Funny? not much these days..I have to dig pretty deep!
Intellegent? Seems as our chosen life path wasn't that!
Bake? yea, I can at least do that.
You're a truly great friend Sage, and I'm so glad I love lavender, as that's how I found you months ago!
Hope your week is starting off great!
Always, Barb

Do we have to pay you for this? If so, I am Anon. If not, thank you very much, m'deario. (I like saying m'deario, as I know that it's not P.C.) lol.

Wow! thank you for that lovely mention. I don't feel worthy.
