Keeping You Posted

I have been trying to decide what to write on tonight.  I have been tired and a little out of ideas – I imagine you could tell by the last few I wrote anyway – but wanted to keep the process up.  I have been resting since last week’s illness and have fallen way behind in my post readings.  I read 25 of them today and, as they were from multiple bloggers, I got an insight into a lot of different minds.  It made me realize that what I should do is to write about the ones that stuck in my head.  Now, understand, I get the list from email and delete the email notification after I read the post, so I can’t easily take you back to those posts.  I will give you the person (blog) and you can go peek if you want.

1)  Rich – I read two of Rich’s today.  The first was part 13 of his road to ruin (his story of his teaching life) and the other was his version of this week’s horoscope (which was hilarious).

2)  Buckwheatsrisk – I also read two of her posts today.  She is having difficulty with her mom and her sister because of the abuse they all suffered from her narcissistic, sociopath father.  She has escaped, but it has cost her dearly because she has had to leave her family behind.  It has been a necessity, but rough on her.  I am proud of her, by the way.

3)  Boomie Bol – I read several of Boomie’s today.  She writes poetry and is, usually, short with it.  That’s mostly because she has 3(?) children who don’t allow her enough time to be long.

4)  I Think in Comics – Vy (pronounced “vee”) is a wonderful young woman who is majoring in Biology in college and loves to create comics.  I love her “Minus One” comic section.  Today, a fairly shy guy was trying to cook a meal for a girl he likes.  He was so nervous and I can identify with all that.

5) Joe C Combs 2nd –  Is a history author and buff and the only person, basically, that has made me enjoy reading a bit of history.  Today, he talked about sunsets and the moon, which was a little different for him.  Way to widen your horizons, Joe!

6)  R. L. King – Is a fine poet.  She writes constantly and turns out verse that, often, leaves me a bit speechless (quite a task for anyone).  Today, I set my record with her, I read 7 of her posts.  She posted a multi-post poem entitled “Villanelle”.  Each followed a slightly different rhyming pattern, but it all focused on the same topic and read smoothly from one to the next. My favorite was part II.  She wrote a multi-post “Sonnet”, too, but I haven’t read them all yet.

7)  The Adventures of Danda and YaYa – or LazyLauraMaisey is one of the more humor-filled blogs I read.  Today, she talked on “Pathways” and, though not necessarily humorous, the pics were great and thought-provoking.

8)  Hope-the Happy Hugger – It is this young woman who held the key for my post today.  I read several of hers, all good, but she wrote one entitled “No, I’m not Doing It Today” in which she said, in her post, that she wasn’t going to follow the photo prompt even though her OCD tendencies wanted her to.  Not only did I admire that, but it started the thought processes that led me to deciding to do a post on all the other posts.  Thanks, Dear.

9)  Alien Hippy – She will tell you she suffers with a mental handicap (or, at least, society calls it that), but she is such a wonderful person and I felt so sorry for her as I read her post for today.  She seems to be in a quandary as to what to do with a world that seems intent on telling her what to do without listening to her side.

10) Indira – Is a wonderful woman from India.  I found her blog by reading her daughter’s blog, which I still follow today.  She does quite a few photos from prompts and is quite a photographer.  We enjoy wonderful short conversations in the form of comments.

11)  JmMcDowell – An archeologist and writer of sci-fi novels, she is great.  I have read one of her novels and loved it.  She also writes stories divided by posts (currently, Megan Bode is thrilling us).  She has taught me a lot and, probably, doesn’t know it.  Today, she talked about the intercession that her characters had to help her with a problem.  Great idea – wow!

12)  Everyday Asperger’s – I can’t say enough about Sam.  She is one of those people who I just love dearly and admire greatly.  Though not the first blog I ever followed, hers was close.  We have been blog friends for nearly a year now and I am proud of that.  She has Asperger’s Syndrome and talks so openly about it that doctors would do well to read her posts and learn instead of reading those professional journals on the subject.

Okay, could I have left someone out?  Yes.  I am sorry if I did.  Are there others who I follow?  Oh my…I follow 129 blogs.  I don’t mind it anymore.  I decided that, if I don’t like it, I could simply quit reading all of them.  But, I learn so much and interact with so many people that I can’t imagine leaving any of them behind.

So to all of you who I follow and did not mention today…love you bunches!

If you are interested, I have a page entitled “Intriguing Posts I have Found”.  This page has links to some, well, intriguing posts!  Give it a look and tell me what you think.

How about you?  Besides your own post, who are your favs!?  Here is a chance to list them in the comments section and give them a plug!

    Thanks so much for the shout-out, Scott. 🙂 There are so many interesting, entertaining, and educational blogs out there that it’s hard to mention only a few. I’ve retired my blog roll (at least for a while) and instead suggest that readers check out the comments on posts. I think the comments are a great way to see if what other bloggers say there appeals to us. If it does, we can head over to there blogs—if they’ve been good and provided a link on their gravatars. 😉

    What a terrific idea of writing about other people’s blogs. I might still this idea from you if that’s okay.


Feel free to say something; I look forward to it!
