Favorite Posts This Week…

It’s so nice to have time to read my favorite blogs – and find some new blogs to enjoy.

I enjoy finding new blogs, but have some that I just have to follow on a daily basis!

Of course there’s Like A Warm Cup of Coffee… Don’t you just love her blog? She did a thought-provoking three-part series on abortion in the case of rape called Sold Out For Life. (Here’s Part 2 and Part 3). It’s thought provoking to say the least. Sarah Mae doesn’t make any compromises, but approaches her topics with grace and compassion.

Home Sanctuary. Ahhh. I’ve made this blog a “tab” that shows up when I come to the internet. Her blog is like a sanctuary from the busy internet world… I especially enjoyed her You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby. It was inspiring.

This is what I would call a Beautiful Disaster. Make it From Scratch shared an idea for What to Do when the Jam Doesn’t Set. I have such fond memories of blackberry picking with a really good friend one summer while I was still in high school. They were living in their still-newly built house and we were able to visit for a few days. They had wild blackberry bushes on their property at the end of their driveway and we picked buckets of them. Then we walked back to the house and the fun began! Blackberry jam was on the menu, and while it was still warm, it was poured over vanilla ice cream. Oh. My. Word. Talk about divine. In the meantime, a blackberry cobbler was in the oven, and that was just as lovely…

Are you feeling the need to enjoy what’s left of the rest of summer? Check out these All American S’mores Cookies from Macaroni and Cheesecake! If S’mores aren’t your thing are you a real American? then check out these Super Easy Oatmeal Jam Bars from My Baking Addiction. Seriously people – following foodie blogs can be dangerous.

And finally, this post at Dancing in the Margins for Word Filled Wednesday says it all. Prepare The Way!

Questions to Ponder:

How often do you visit other blogs?

Do you seek out new blogs or do you rely on your old favorites?

What draws you to a new blog?

What keeps you going back?

  1. I visit the blogs I follow.

    I rely on old favorites and the blogs linked to in those favorites.

    Sometimes I find a new blog I like through a giveaway sites or something like that.

    Color. Not cluttered with stuff. Topics covering the things I’m thinking about and living through.

    Having short but thoughtful posts.

  2. Part of me wishes I’d never find another new blog to read. The other part of me is excited to add yet another blog to my Google Reader and daily reading.

    If I like a blog (it’s funny, it’s touching, it’s relevant to my life), I immediately add it to my reader. And then I try to read every post.

    But lately, I’ve been having to skim and even skip more. There’s just too much good stuff out there!!!

  3. I’m much like LaDonna. I stick to my old favorites, but visit new blogs that are linked within them – which really can be considerable! So I have to choose wisely.

    Material that is useful or inspirational to me is what keeps me going back.

  4. I vist lots of blogs and try to keep a mix of old and new. The writer’s topic selection is what makes me return, but I enjoy reading the variety of posts.

    It can get quickly overwhelming–trying to write my own posts, respond to questions/discussion, and making relevant posts at other readers sites. It has been a lesson in patience.
