If it's true that laughter is the best medicine, then my "Blog a Day" policy must be what's keeping me healthy...At the very least it's keeping me sane, in spite of the ups and downs of life with kids. I started blogging to keep my family up to date on the insignificant bits of my life, but I found my way into a whole new world; I feel a bit like Alice going down the rabbit hole, and truly some of the characters I've met are equally as strange as those she comes across on her adventure. There is a small difference though, I'm not looking for the way out of Bloggerland because I've found some amazing people out there, really talented people, that can make me laugh, even when they write about nothing at all. My blog roll started off small, but one blog leads to another and I keep adding new friends to my list all the time. It says "A Blog a Day", but to be honest, I read more than one blog a day, and often I find myself spending more time reading other people's blogs and leaving comments than I do writing my own posts. I have realized, however, that I've been paying far too much lip service to one particular blogger (which may be the reason he made me Adjutant Inspector) and I decided it's high time I sing the praises of some other deserving bloggers that are out there. Lucky for me we have modern technology, so I won't be needing this guy's method:
The Ice Queen is one of my favorites, and seeing as Minka has named me her Royal Advisor (I was vying to be Duchess, but since I can't pronounce those tricky Icelandic place names, I'll just stick to Royal Advisor), this shout-out is way overdue. I visit her everyday, and I think, "Thank God for Internet", otherwise flying over to Iceland could get quite expensive (Someday I really will fly over to see you, Minka). There's all sorts of funny stuff to be found over here, great pictures of Iceland, curious facts, and of course Thursday Trivia. So, when you're done here, go hail to our Queen of Penguins.
Then there's G's Simply Said, which is just that - G, simply saying whatever comes to her mind (At least that's what I think, I haven't actually found a way of looking into people's minds, for all I know she may be thinking of a really hot male model while writing about bubble tea). Some posts are flat out funny (I'm positive G must have an extra funny bone somewhere) , some are poigniant, but whatever the mood there's always something worth reading.
And last, but certainly not least, is Neva with Puppytoes. I had a hard time figuring out just who she was, because at times she is Neva, on other occasions she is Snuppy, and sometimes she is a certain-blogger-who-shall-not-be-named's Crazy Aunt Neva (Neva, did I get all your personalities straight?). You'll find the Dalai Bobo's brain-tickling thoughts at her place, and some irresistable pictures of Bobo to go along with them.
These three ladies have found their way into my life, or maybe it's me who's found my way into theirs, but however it's happened, they brighten my day and I hope they'll brighten yours too. And anyone who can tell me what they have in common gets extra points. What are the points for? Um, well, when I figure that out I'll get back to you...
