Weekly Blog Roundup #1

Today, I am going to start a new Sunday feature, a Weekly Blog Roundup (organic, I promise) of some other bloggers I enjoyed in the past week.  I will try to maintain this at least through the rest of January, and February.

Too often we pay attention to our own blogs and don't thank those bloggers who inspire us, give us ideas, entertain us, make us think, or introduce us to worlds different than our own.

Today, I want to link to several blog posts I enjoyed this past week.  There were more, but I wanted to keep this somewhat short.

Holly Jahangiri introduced me to the concept of Slow Blogging.  Guess I was even slower than she was in discovering it.

Roy Ackerman - ever wonder about your privacy and auto insurance?  You'll be sorry you asked.

Alice's Grand Adventures - Lentil Soup.  Doesn't her post make you want some?

Emma Crees, a Writer in a Wheelchair with some parody songs.

Having Coffee with Peppy: a blogger in Idaho - not your typical blogger, and I'm glad.  Her coffee is always on.

and finally, Marian Allen visiting a monastery in Kentucky - her observation "probably not Han Solo" made my entire week.

I hope you visit one or more of these blogs, and find something that appeals to you.  Happy blog visiting!

  3. Great idea. Now I have to know what "probably not Han Solo" means.

    1. It has to do with a scene from The Empire Strikes Back. Google "Hans Solo Hibernation". I'm not a Star Trek geek but I have seen all the movies.

  4. Good job...A Weekly RoundUp...and what an interesting RoundUp group it was. I really enjoyed the Slow Blogging...SPOT ON..oops I think that may be too trendy of a comment...so I'll just say I'm mulling over the Manefesto. Soups On...okay if I substitute Pinto Beans for lentils and Spanish rice for long grain. It's a Texas thing. Look forward to next week, Alana!

  5. Thanks for including me, Alana! Some of those I'm already reading, but some are new to me.

    And, Sue, your soup sounds yummy! If I hadn't just finished supper, I'd make some. :)
