1. RE: Blogrolls – Do you link just because you were linked? Or do you link because you actually read it?
I link because I actually read it. I’ve been linked at places that I’d never link back to because of the sole reason that I would not spend any time there reading it. I don’t mind an email saying , “Hey I’ve linked you – – would you visit my site and consider a link back?” – because I’m always interested in new and fresh things to read. I once had a guy do that – -but I didn’t link back. The guy stalked me via email for months demanding to know why I wouldn’t link back, because he had me linked – – so shouldn’t I reciprocate?
2. RE: Stupid Quizzes: Do you do them? If you do – do you do them because you think they’re cute, fun and interesting? Or do you do them because you have absolutely no ideas in your head and have nothing else to blog about and you feel obligated to put something, anything up there?.
Stupid quizzes are….well….stupid…but can be fun, sometimes.
3. RE: Other blogs – 5 (or more)blogs that have captured my attentions this week
I found and added a few new blogs to my list this week:
A Small Victory – obviouslly not a new blog…but new to me, really – because I haven’t spent much time reading Michele’s rantings. It was her cleavage that drew me in – – and I read her more regularly now. I like her style.
Rachel has just the cutest blog design. I found her via my comments here – and have enjoyed reading her site so far. She’s currently having an issue with cheating spouses….good woman, that Rachel.
Then there is Marc who is married, but still dabbles in bachelor-like cooking.
I’ve been reading Robert for a while – so he’s not really new to my blogroll. But since I recently finished his conversion from MT over to WP – I’ve paid a bit more attention to his site, and it’s become a daily read. He has an email from a soldier who makes the following statement:
For those of you who support us in our endeavors, thank you from the bottom of our hearts and know that your support DOES make a difference to us. To those of you who do not, please sleep well and know that your bitter insults, narrow viewpoints, and indifference to the very real threat that exists make no impact whatsoever to our collective resolve to rid the world of those vermin who would take our freedom – yours included.
That is a feel good post. A real feel good one.
