Blog to Blog

New game. Thanks Jo-Jo for the shout. Visit 4 of your daily blog reads. From each blog choose another blog from their blogroll that you've never visited.

Try that blog out for a month and see what happens. They may become your new fave, who knows! 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 blog roll they came from. And if you want, coerce others mercilessly into joining in!

Just add that extra 8 hours in my day and we're golden!

Heading over to Insane Mama's place I see Holy Crappers and think that blog has to be funny! It is. They drink beer!

Next, I strolled through my girl G's place and the blog A Soft Place to Land sounds really inviting....like a warm blanket on a cold day.

My new friend Elizabeth a The ParentingPink Blog has a great blog. I peeked at her friends list and saw something that reminded me of Seasame Street, but sunnier. Try out Living on Sunshine Street.

I love Jill's blog, she is a world away living in India, so I thumbed through her blogroll next. I see a blog name that has passed my lips before...but when answering the MOOOOOOOOOMMMMM!!! call...Mommy Doesn't Live Here Anymore.

Your turn.

    I do this all the time; I call it Horizontal Surfing. Looks like you've found some winners! To add to Jo-Jo's idea, I would suggest this: Surf across FIVE different blogs (through their comments), until you find yourself in an unfamiliar (but enjoyable) blog, so lost that you could never find your way home. Then, introduce that blogger to your readers, like you did here. Fun stuff!

    That's great idea and it makes sense to check out who's reading who you're reading...who reads...oh, you know what I mean! Almost instant connection!

    Oh what fun! I too love to look at people's blog rolls... I'm definitely going to have to check out these folks.

    Thanks for the nice words!

    Can't wait to check out all of these sites. You're with me on Parenting Pink. Love Elizabeth. Can't wait to check out Jill's. Not only does she have a great name LOL, but she lives in India, which is where I would go if I could only choose one place to travel in my life.

    Hope you are having a great weekend. I also recommended some blogs on my site. Have fun checking them out!

    I am so glad you joined in! I have found some great reads! Too bad your friend hasn't blogged in awhile, from what I read we could really connect.
