Now, I usually try to post about either quilting or knitting, crochet or other fiber related adventures with an occasional side trip into books. That is the focus of my blog, after all. I think I'm doing a fairly good job of staying on topic(s). Like Ilker, I don't post a blogroll in my sidebar. Why? I have over 200 blogs that I read (I have way too much time on my hands during daylight hours because it is actually 300; note to self: whittle that down) and I feel that nobody but me would scroll through an hellacious list like that, so I don't do it. What I do instead is to give you a link inside my post that you can follow (or not). If I were to include a blogroll it would be a diverse fibery thing that includes quilters (art, crazy and traditional), knitters, crocheters, fabric dyers, scrapbookers, photographers and journalers. Plus the uncategorized ones like Ilker's. Thank goodness they don't ALL post daily! There are actually a couple of blogs that I read that I have in my del.icio.us account because there just aren't any feeds to them.
So. Onward. I especially like to read posts that I can ponder and think about. And so, before I post my list of 5 that I read to make me think or laugh or cry or walk down memory lane or just to pour a cuppa & pull up a chair for a chat, I want to thank Connie of "Simply Quilted" for including me in this meme. And I mean this sincerely because this one made me stop and think. I have lucky number 13 in my 'Daily Reads'. It is going to be hard to prioritize them but here goes (and because I can't follow directions I've thrown in an extra one or two, tee hee!).
- A Simple Girl
- Pieces from my scrapbag
- Gone to the Dogs
- Kim's Big Quilting Adventure
- With Heart and Hands, A Quilting Journey
