Blogs...the new book?

I have this list of 100 books that I want to finish reading.  See it up there?  Up along the top of the page?  I'll read them too.  But...I am often pulled away.

By blogs.

I am on a never ending cycle.

I find blogs I like, and a few that I love.  And I keep finding more and more to read. And then my google reader list of blogs becomes overwhelming, so I unsubscribe to a bunch.  But then I find NEW (to me) blogs to follow.  And so on and so on.

There are a few that remain constant.  A few that I have read since I discovered this blog world, about a year ago.

And then there are a few that I find (the ones that I mentioned loving above?), that I read from the beginning.  And they read like a book.

In the last few weeks I have found two that I wake up each morning hoping they have posted something...

Hollywood Housewife

Laura is quite literally a hollywood housewife.  Her husband is the mind behind the Jacka*s series (and more), and she started her time in California as a production assistant on movies and television.  Which would lead me to believe that I wouldn't be able to identify with her.  at. all.   But, quite the contrary.  I am amazed at how down-to-earth she is.  

And get this.  I linked up to her blog with my post about my "one word" for the year.  And she came to my blog and commented.  For realz.   The times where the link-up hosts actually visit my blog?  Few and far between.  And then actually comment?  Slim to none.   

Love her.  She is funny, a mom of two, and has interesting and varied posts.  Right now she is in the middle of a story about her faith.  If you have a minute or two, check her out.   

The other awesome blog I am addicted to right now?  

Momastery.    You know that "Don't Carpe Diem" post that has been very quickly been finding its way around Facebook, Twitter and the like?  First published on Momastery.  I went to check it out, and then stayed.  

Glennon has one of the most intriguing and inspiring (to me) stories that I have heard in a LONG time.  Seriously, read her story on her "about me" page.   What she created with her blog is a community, a network of friends...and I hope with the new found fame that her "Don't Carpe Diem" post garnered, that doesn't change for them.  

Alright...so there you go.  A few new blogs to add to your reader.   

You're welcome.

Read this yesterday on my phone, so I couldn't comment. I'm obsessed with Glennon from Momastry, too! And I also found her through her Carpe Diem post that went viral.

Also, I'm a blog commenting machine now that I've found the Google Next button. Do you use it? Game-changer.
