What Blog?

Oh, right. That blog.

The statistics for forgotten blogs is staggering. It numbers in the thousands. An individual creates a blog, posts everyday like a maniac, then suddenly drops it to pursue something else. They apparently do not take into consideration the loyal followers that support them. Is a short note too much to ask? I don't think so.

I would never take a leave of absence without an explanation, and I'm a Gemini. By definition, I am flaky and tend to lost interest. Who knew?
I know most of you feel the same way. You wouldn't quit speaking to a friend without a word, would you? Ok, maybe...but you better have a good reason.

With that being said, there are so many great blogs to follow that its hard to choose which ones to read every day. When someone begins to follow me or leaves a comment, I check out their blog. I am truly amazed (and sometimes extremely jealous), but here are a few that you HAVE to see:

She lives in Japan and writes beautifully.
Jim Diaz
Has a unique and hilarious perspective on a number of things.
Jennifer Shirk
One of the nicest blogger's around!
Jennifer J Bennett
Her day job is a middle school librarian, how much fun is that?
Valerie Geary
Funny and very informative. You can get lost and spend hours reading this blog.
Concord Carpenter
A cop and a carpenter. If I could afford it, I would fly him from Massachusetts to help with my house....and arrest my neighbors.
And Terry
Who I would follow anywhere...if she would post something on her blog. No pressure or anything....

I would have listed everyone but then the post would be too long. You would get bored and wander off. You know you would.


  1. oooo... thanks for the shout out! :)

  2. Thank you, Marsha. So kind of you to mention me. I always joke about my "blog."

    But, funny you should mention it, I'm going to actually start posting on my blog in mid-January. On a Tuesday. There's a reason for the Tuesday. I'll let you know.

    I so enjoy following your posts. Your thoughts so often amuse me and therefore brighten my day.

    I'll have to check out the others you mention.

  3. Thanks for the plug, and the kind words. Nice to know someone appreciates the madness!

  4. You all deserve the praise! I am so addicted to reading your words.

  5. I lost interest when I didn't see my name. I'm KIDDING! LOL

    Looks like a very good list you got there. And it is VERY cool that Jennifer is a library at her day job. Really cool to see someone from Japan. For some reason every time I see the last name Diaz it puts me in mind of people I knew in high school (not a bad thing, just word association). The others I'll have to take a peek. :-)

  6. You already know I love you Bethany! I had to point out others! It can't always be about you and
    Even if it should be.

  7. Marsha,

    LOL I know. I was just being funny :-)


It helps to know I'm not just talking to myself.
