Enlighten me

I've been feeling overwhelmed by the great big blogging world lately.  There are so many amazing blogs and talented people out there and every time I stumble across a new one I love, I add it to my Reader.  Of course, with all the gabillion amazing blogs I find, my Reader is out of control.  The "All Items 1000+" makes me nervous because I am clearly missing out on The Awesome but I don't have the time to go through and read Everything Ever Written By Everyone.

This is where you come in.  Tell me what's your current favorite blog.  Maybe it's your best new find and you want to share it with me (and my four readers).  Maybe it's an oldie but goodie that I don't know about yet.  Maybe it's YOUR blog and we've not yet met (Hello!).  Topic doesn't matter but I am partial to craft, design, cooking or parenting blogs.

In the meantime, I am going to go click "Mark All As Read" in my Reader and put my feet up.  I'll let you do the rest of the work for me.  I'm super nice like that.

This seems like it could be counter-productive... I've been collecting homeschooling and science blogs lately, and I still don't usually take the time to read everything. I usually click my "a-list" which consists mostly of people I've met IRL, and everything else sits neglected.

Oh, this is a bad question for me. I have a blogroll on my page, and I read most everyone of them every time they post. It's umm... a lot. You're on it. :)

I'm afraid to say more than that for fear of leaving anyone out. I can't wait to see your replies, though, and find more addictions!

Don't be afraid! Just throw out one that you like, maybe it's the last one you read. No one will feel left out, I promise. This is a FUN ZONE!

Hello there! I am one of your readers. I found your blog on one of my friend's blogs - Raised in the Woods. Looks like that's already on your blog roll.

I stumbled across this cool blog, I like it because it's from a father's perspective:

This just cracks me up:

It's funny I asked this same question on this blog post of mine:

I ended up getting some good recommendations.

Cheers!

I really like Julia at http://julia.typepad.com/

She's a great writer and although she only posts, like, once a week--they're fabulous and funny and all encompassing.

Oh yes, my reader currently says 345, which is low for me! Here's a confession... I am a huge lurker on Sprittibee's blog. She's a homeschooler and mom of three in Texas. She takes some adorable pictures of her kids and just gushes about her life.

Rude Cactus and So The Fish Said are husband and wife with 2 adorable kids and if you're not reading them, you should. And my friend Suzy has an awesome blog, Just Me and The Voices. I think you read the rest of my Reader - pretty much.
