friending

A comment from a Facebook friend* started me thinking. She (facetiously) typed:

Every time I see one of you has become friends with someone new, I get envious. *I* want another friend!

and I think that's a GREAT idea. I've heard all the rigmarole about blog rolls being outdated and cumbersome and blah blah blah, but I don't see it that way.
Having someone's blog name up on the side of my blog? I see that as a gesture.

Something that says 'Hey, I enjoy you, and I want other people to know that.'

So, in the spirit of that, today,

please suggest a blog I don't read that you think I'd enjoy. Feel free to pimp yourself too!

After all, we could all use some new friends sometimes.


*she's a terrific blogger too, but password-protected, so you're going to miss out. Sorry!

Jessica,
I am going to recommend to you two of my friends from France in the interest of French-Canadian relations. They are both photoblogs but with a difference. I hope you will like them.

First there is Mr. Toad at
http://magiclanternshowen.blogspot.com/

and then there is le Night Owl at
http://lenightowlinjonzac.blogspot.com/

I am also going to steal your post idea and ask for similar recommendations from my visitors. You always inspire me. BTW, your kids are growing up great and happy and loved. They are blessed.

Read my friend Julia at http://lotsalaundry.blogspot.com/ - she's damned smart, and wise.

Um, where's Twisted Susan?

I have to rebuild my list, thanks to the Toshiba frying.

Not sure if you read www.loraleeslooneytunes.com, but she cracks me up with every post.

www.amalah.com is part of the reason why I blog today. Amy is another one who makes me laugh.

Now there's an adorable baby to see, but I started following www.wanderingsaffachick.blogspot.com thanks to NaBloPoMo 2007 and have been reading ever since.

I have a friend who writes a beautiful blog. Brie is Captial Mom, this is her link: http://capitalmom.blogspot.com/

I have been busy and haven't visited you in a while. Hope all is well. My baby is 6 months old now and I hope to be able to find a bit more time for blog reading :)
