Blogs aka my Favorites
I have been following some blogs for several years now but I didn't know it. No, I don't have multiple personalities. I didn't realize that was what they were. I just thought they were cool websites that were updated regularly so I saved them to my favorites and checked them every day! I'm hip and didn't even realize it. Of course using the word "hip" probably negates any "hipness". Naturally, I follow Katy's new BFF, the fabulous Mrs. Mimi. I love her because not only is she an advocate for teachers and her "little friends" she is sarcastic and loves Barnes and Noble. That's enough for me! I follow the Book Aunt and Chicken Spaghetti because they read and write reviews of children's books. I love all books but have gained a special love of children's books from my mother-in-law who is a retired kindergarten teacher. I chose to post on the blog of Chicken Spaghetti about the demise of picture books. I also follow the Pioneer Woman. Her name is Ree Drummond and she has won several awards for her blog, has written a book and a cookbook, is a photographer, has four kids and Marlboro Man, her husband. She was a city girl who married a rancher and her life is quite entertaining. Finally, I follow Katy Wimer, probably out of a misguided sense of parental responsibility. She might feel bad if she only had one follower so I try to lift her spirits by making her think I really care about what she has to say. This technique also works very well with her father. Perhaps there is a genetic component.
