Blogger-to-Reader

so, there are people who are into blogs... and these people, I've learned, have a nifty little secret about this new little technological community. I'm starting to really enjoy it, and I enjoy finding blogs about things I enjoy or want to learn more about... design, cooking, photography... anything that involves exploring the less-used side of my type-A brain. There's truly something for everyone out there. Fixing cars? yep. Political Activism? yep. Christianity? you bet. Pregnancy? heck yes, in detail, I might add. Delightfulblogs is a cute little starting point for perusing this craft, by interest. mainly, for women though. I like it that saying the word 'blog' no longer is whispered in the same hushed tones as if we were talking about [whispers] 'sex'.
Let's face it, blogs are definitely becoming part of our 'culture'. Take it or leave it, to each his own. But, I think I'll take.

Well, the new (to me) trick up the veteran bloggers sleeve is Google Reader. Instead of clicking once a day on news, blogs, friends' sites, and ones that you stalk regularly... you can easily type in [add subscriptions to] your favorite sites that have 'feeds'. pretty much any blog. They'll all be there on your Google Reader or your igoogle page, and it will let you know when there's a new post from any of your authors. Really keeps the incessant clicking and checking to a minimum. Think off all that time you have back in your life?

yes, I know we could argue the irony of that one all day long... But, for now, Enjoy. I'm off to make some garlic-mustard glazed chicken skewers for my soon-to-be-home workin' man. Is it so-very backwards that I want one of these ? I think the modern woman can do what she wants... I can work at the hospital all day, and pretend I'm in a 60's sitcom all night.

I am catching up on my blog reading...I am glad to see that you are still enjoying Smitten Kitchen. Deb never ceases to amaze me! I used the cake recipe that she used for the wedding cake for Ross' birthday cake and it was AMAZING!! Have you checked out the aprons at Anthropologie? I have 4. Seriously. I am addicted.
