Interesting Blog Posts!

I just spent the last hour reading from the list of blogs I follow and it occurred to me that this list is fairly eclectic. I'm rather picky about who I follow and have no problem with unfollowing someone if that blog floods my blog feed with junk.

Today, I've read a blog on politics, one on cooking, several on writing, one on parenthood, and one written by a comedian. I love getting to know such a diverse collection of people. So I thought I'd share the 3 that stood out to me the most. (This by no means represents all of my favorite blogs. That list would take much too long to share. These are just some I read today.) I love blogs that make me think, make me laugh out loud, and that teach me things each time I visit. I hope you find these as interesting.

The first blog I'd like to share comes from Arlee over at Tossing It Out. He touched on a subject that I truly feel is one of the biggest issues in our country today...Apathy: If it doesn't directly affect me, then it isn't important. -or- There's nothing I can do to change it anyway.
All I can say is, "Wake up, people!" Thanks, Arlee, for a great and very interesting post!

Second up is Kiran who is guest blogging on Scary Mommy today. Her post is about how much time we spend being unhappy with our bodies as women and how we raise our daughters to be the same. I totally agree with her...this is not right. Love your body and your daughter will love hers, too, ending the vicious cycle of discontent with how we look. Stop missing the best days of your life by focusing on what isn't perfect!

Next, T.B. McKenzie at Magickless talks about 5 things we writers all do in our first drafts. I was nodding through most of it and if you're also a writer, you'll be doing the same thing. We writers should never stop reading on our craft and reminding ourselves of those important things we learned while writing that first novel.

Finally, I'd like to share Heather's humor over at Minivan Momma. This lady cracks me up. She seems a bit...uh-hum, tired, today. While I don't post them, I have to admit I've had thoughts along the same lines as these. Too funny, Heather!

I hope you enjoy these posts as much as I did and that you'll give them a follow if you don't already. Believe me, they are each well worth it!

Hey Fish!

(Does anyone call you Fish?)

(Do you hate being called Fish?)

I hope not - my favorite baseball player - *evah* is Tim Salmon and his nickname was... (all together...) FISH!

I'm sorry, where was I?

Oh, hi Sabrina :)

Cheers for a fun post - you've totally given me several peeps I want to check out.

A lack of humor drives me crazy - or do I *go* crazy because of humor? :)

Anyway, thanks and hope all is well... (whispers) fish :)

Ooo... I want to call Sabrina "Fish!" Can we make that a nickname? Tons of people call me Shamy...

And I agree with Mark. Fun post--thanks for these highlights!

Great post! I always love being introduced to new blogs!

Tamara said...

Thanks for following my blog! I'm trying to revive it. Maybe you could give some hints? Hope to see you at our next writing meeting!

Ashley Nixon said...

Haha!! I like how everyone wants to call you Fish now.

These are great blogs! I enjoyed Magickless!

Arlee Bird said...

Thank you for featuring my blog in this post. I'm honored to have you as a follower. Fish and Birds need to watch out for each other.

HA! Fish and Birds - I love it :)

PS: Hey Fish :) Just so you know you're not alone with the garlic thing - the guy who helps manage Eat the Street said Garlic as a theme is only #2 to Bacon :)
