O is for Others


We have reached the halfway point for the A to Z challenge. While part of this challenge is to push us as writers by having us write every day, another aspect of this challenge is to both expand our reader base as well as make new friends. For today, O is for others. While I've been browsing many different blogs while doing the challenge, these are some of the ones I find myself reading on a daily basis.

The Warrior Muse - Shannon is one of the team members of the challenge. So I feel bonus points for not only posting every day but also helping coordinate and check on how every many blogs are in her section. Her theme is history's mysteries and she has had some great ones. Stop by and check it out. You'll probably learn something new.

Destination Unknown - Kellie has traveled around the world and has the pictures to prove it! As a great photographer and adventurer, she has already experienced more than most people do in a lifetime. Check out her travels and explore someplace new through her photography

The Transformed Nonconformist - I look forward to the comedy style of his writing every day. His topics are varied but his humor is consistant. If you need a good laugh, take a look. I'm sure it will put a smile on your face.

Misadventure Abound - While she has been a little inconsistant due to some bad timing with things, I look forward to new posts. They are filled with a unique perspective and sense of humor that I enjoy. Stop by and say hello, it might inspire her to keep posting.

Strange Pegs - Ever want to learn how to be a lumberjack? How about a model? Strange pegs will tell you. His theme is "How to" with topics being from lumberjacks and models to an Ornithologist. His wit and humor make the posts entertaining yet still somewhat informative.

These are a few of the blogs I look at every day. Do you have any? What do you like about them?

    1. I know, It's really going by a lot faster than I thought it would be. Only 8 more letters left now. It's almost sad.

  4. Thank you so much. You make me happy that I added you to my Feedly feed.

    Feedly feed? That sounds ridiculous.

    Feedly Roll is not much better.

    You know what? We are mutual admirers of each other's blogs.

    Great! Now I sound gay.

    REDO: Thank you.

    1. I thought about trying but between my blog, commenting on others and my real job, I just couldn't find time to get to all of them. I am going to make a decent dent in that list though. Thanks for stopping by.
