AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION REQUIRED . . .

I should be in Manchester right now (and hopefully I WILL be, provided I got on the right train etc) but I thought I'd leave you with a question anyway.

I'm always looking to find new GREAT blogs to read. It's funny cos when I check my google reader and have 100 new items to read I think "Oh my god, I have a LIFE, how am I going to get through THIS?" But when I am bored and check my reader and have NO NEW ITEMS, I feel utterly bereft.

That is the contradiction that is little old moi.

So . . . I invite you to share. There are sooo many great blogs out there who don't have that many readers. It's hard to get your name out there when there are blogs a plenty hanging about in the blogosphere.

Is there a blog out there that you think isn't getting the recognition or readership it deserves? Let me know and I'll be sure to check it out once I'm back from Manchester.

Maybe we can check out as many recommended blogs as possible and see what we've been missing out on.

Just a thought.

In the meantime, hope you're all having a fab weekend! :)

  7. The first one is "http://www.onehungrychef.com The Hungry Chef..I don't even remember how I found this guy. He is an American expatriate livin' the dream in Australia and he posts the tastiest recipes once a week. Definitely check out the potato recipes this week. They are easy and that is some damn fine comfort food.

    The other is http://www.shaunaglenn.com Shauna Glenn . Her schtick is pretty damn funny and makes me laugh out loud... a lot!

    finally Im gonna mention my own blog..well cuz I can and because I put a lot of effort into it!

  9. I was thinking about hosting some kind of "Pimp Your Blog" day where people could get the word out about their own blogs while finding other fun ones to read. What do you think?

  10. Good luck in Manchester!

    Also, i want to nominate Suzanne Icognito at www.icognitosoapboxconfessions.blogspot.com. She's a 20-something who is really, really, REALLY wanting to become a mum, but her blog is not entirely all " mummy " stuff. She's really articulate and thoughtful and well written...
