Let's Meet New Bloggers!

I found this on Shannon's blog and thought it would be a fun way to discover new blogs. Check it out:

The Rules of "Kick Your Blog roll Up the Arse"

--Go to four of your favorite bogs and pick a blog from their blogroll that you've never read before.

--Add them to your blogroll or feeder and read them every day for a month. By then you will be totally into them!

--Post the rules and the name of the blog you got it from. Name the four blogs you chose (and briefly why you chose them) and whose blogrolls you found them on.

--Encourage others to do the same!

I love this idea! here's what I came up with:

From Black Hockey Jesus' blogroll I found Is There Any Mommy Out There? This looks like an amazing blog and I'm excited to read it. Make sure you scroll down to her post from Sunday called Sister of My Heart. It's beautiful! ***Edited to say that it looks like Anymommy is going on vacation for a couple of weeks--so I'll follow her blog when she gets back. Instead I have chosen Izzymom--since I chose quickly, my main reason was that I like her header!

From Barefoot Foodie I found How to Party With an Infant. This looks like a hilarious blog and I'm looking forward to reading it every day.

On Happy Meals and Happy Hour I discovered The McMommy Chronicles. Looks like McFun!

And finally, from Okay. Fine. Dammit. I found Velveteen Mind. Looks very interesting and she wrote a Facebook post the same day I did!

Well, those should keep me busy! Now go forth and find blogs!!

What a great idea!!! Starting next week, when I'll have more time and be less tired, I think that I may do that...

Aubrey said...

That is such a great idea! I always love finding new blog "gems". Thanks for the tip!

CaraBee said...

I'm just a tiny bit overwhelmed by my blogging right now. I think I MIGHT have a problem. As much as I love to discover new people, and I really do, I need to scale back a little right now. I might come back to this idea in a few weeks, though.

That's a great idea, it's always fun to find a new read.

Jo-Jo said...

I thought this was real fun! Wasn't it a wonderful idea?! Your picks sound great...I think I may check them out myself!

Ann said...

This is such a fun idea!
I've created my version of a blog award.
Come by and see!

Giggle! said...

Oh COOL! You did it tooo!!

It's a great way to make new friends!! I've been adopted by heaps of bloggers through this and I feel real honoured :-D xx

Shannon said...

Yay! Glad you decided to play along!

Z's Mom said...

This does sound like fun...I saw this on Shannon's blog too.

I would love to try it sometime but I find it hard to keep up with the blogs on my list now.....and I KNOW I would fall in love with more if I ventured out...

Kathy said...

do mine! do mine! I'd love feedback on some of the stuff I've put up. I'm curious what others enjoy. I'm going to do this this weekend so you'll be at the top of the list since I learned it from you

Megan {Velveteen Mind} said...

I'm so excited you chose my blog as one of the ones you'll check out. What made you choose me?! ...I always wonder what makes people click through!

By the way, Maggie's blog is ridiculously awesome. Don't go thinking that all of us she links to can compare.

Now then, I should probably write something for you to read, huh? Yeah, she probably didn't mention that I'm a complete slacker.
