Blog about Blogs

I blog and I read blogs, I read alot of blogs and while chatting with a Facebook friend, Hilary Frye of FryeStyle (y'all can go over and "like" her page if ya want).  So the discussion was about how many unread blog post we had, I use Google Reader so I can see how many "unread" post I have.. today 272.  But this also got me to thinking, what kind of blogs do people quilters only read quilting blogs?  do dog friendly people only read dog blogs?  So this got me looking at the type of blogs I here goes..
  • Quilting this includes embroidery
  • Gardening
  • Pet/Dog/Vet
  • Decorating
  • DYI
  • Cooking
  • Nutritionist
  • Fiber**lots and lots of Fiber**
  • Farming
  • News
  • Sports, Nascar/Football/Baseball
  • Knitting
  • Retail information
  • and a few that don't really have a catagory
So tell me...what type of blogs do you read?  do you stick with your hobby?  or are you as crazy as me and have blogs all over the board...

until next time

  1. Crazy like you - only have been out of the loop for the past 5 months - slowly getting back to catching up.

  2. Morning KellyAnn

    I about spit out my coffee when I read 'lots and lots of fiber'

    I'm thinking to myself..."why is she so worried about eating enough fiber????"

    Then I realized that maybe you mean fiber as in wool....too funny!

    My blog roll:

    1. Freindship blogs (just about great women all around the world)
    2. Sewing blogs
    3. DIY blogs
    4. Cooking blogs

    I really love International getting to know people from around the globe.

    I think world leaders should be forced to blog with each other and talk about families, hobbies and favorite You Tube videos.

    We would have fewer wars ;->

    have a lovely Virginia day

  3. Hi, Kelly Ann! Thanks for the shout-out! How sweet!

    I have to admit, I don't branch out much beyond craft blogs. And my list is pretty long!
    However, I've added the first food blog (yours) to my list!

    Here we go...

    Fiber Arts

  4. I mostly read quilting or crafting blogs that use fiber.

A Personal Post

Please indulge me as I write this very personal post....

When an obituary doesn't tell the whole story:

On Christmas day I received a phone call from my nephew that my brother had passed away in his sleep. His death was sudden and with no warning. Time stood still and I didn't know if I could catch my breath from the shock.

You see, Jimmy had always been a part of my life, at 57 I didn't know a life without having this older brother that I looked up to. We had lost our other brother, Karl, in 1984 in a car accident. When there were three, we were down to I am just one.

I found this picture of the three of us...1963/64...the cat, Waldo, is being held by Karl and if you'll notice Jimmy is in a cast..I'm sure there is a story behind that and my mother will be able to fill that in.

Let me tell you about Jimmy that his obituary didn't.

First of all..he was he got older I'm sure he tried to go by Jim, but that was always dad, he was Jimmy. As…
