I Heart Blogs

One of the interests I have listed in my About Me section is learning new things. I LOVE learning new things, it's part of my love for change. It keeps you feeling fresh, which I think is very important in life. I live in a small-ish city in a secluded part of the county. By secluded I mean that not a lot gets in and people are somewhat forgotten about here. I first found out what blogs were about two years ago. I wasn't very involved in the Internet beyond MySpace so I didn't really have a clue what was going on beyond the 419. I had (and still currently have) zillions of magazine subscriptions and one day when I was looking through Jane they had a small article about Sarah from Pink of Perfection. I looked up her blog and instantly fell in love with it. I read all through her posts and followed all of the links she had in them. I also followed all of the links she had in her "Links" section and read through those blogs and followed those links and so on until it was apparent that a better, more interesting, life did exist beyond The Great Black Swamp. It felt like my whole world had instantly opened up! I found so many other people who shared the same interests as me, but I also found new things that I never knew I liked. I found this add-on for Firefox called Foxmarks to organize all of my bookmarks since they were starting to get a little out of control. So, below is a list I put together of some of the blogs/websites that have influenced me, taught me something, or just piqued my interest. Feel free to share yours favs with me!
