My bloggy friend, Shannon at Welcome to the Nut House posted this great idea yesterday on her blog...She originally heard of the idea from a friend in Australia...They call it "Kick Your Blogroll Up the Arse"
Here's the Rules (courtesy of Shannon's blog):
The Rules of "Kick Your Blogroll Up the Arse"
What you do is go to four of your favorite blogs and pick a blog from their blogroll that you've never visited or commented on. You then add that blog to your blogroll or feed, read them for at least a month (by which time there should be no turning back!) and give them a chance to invade your life.
Then duplicate the main part of this post with a note on whose blog you got it from. Name the four new blogs you are going to read, tell briefly why you chose them and whose blogroll they came from. And if you want, coerce others mercilessly into joining in!
My choices are coming from what draws me be it the blog name or the title of the last post...call it a gut feeling~
1. Of course the first person I chose was Shannon's blog (got to start at the source!!!): I chose Sue at Happy Meals and Happy Hours. I was definitely drawn to the title...I think I might find something in common with her. Plus paring child rearing with alcohol?! What's not to like?! ;)
2. Another must is Tressa, my BFF from highschool and the reason I'm blogging. This was a hard choice from me because I stole most of her blogroll when I started my blog - betcha didn't put that together did ya?! I chose Mads & Kelli...What drew me in was that she writes her blog in both Danish and English ...did I do that right?! I love hearing about Ex-pats lives overseas!!
3. Jen at Buried with Children is a daily read (I'm expecting her to put out a restraining order any day now...). On her blog I chose Givinya at Killing a Fly with a Ukulele is Probably the Wrong Thing to Do...do I need to explain the reason why I chose this one?!
4. Whenever Jill from The Perlman Update post a new entry on her blog, I'm on it like white on rice! I find her life fascinating! Extra bonus: after getting to know her via blogging, she's a super sweet person!!! On her blog I chose Xbox4NappyRash...I poked on the blog and immediately a picture of a louse (or some other equally icky bug) popped up! What am I getting myself into?!
So there's my choices...now you go out and find some new friends too!!
Post Script: Blogger is totally messing with me!!! I had to re-write half this post!!! Urghh!!! Sorry to my earlier readers...I hope you revisit and check out this new guys!!
