Blog Every Day In May - Blogs I Read

Along with all those books I've been reading this year, I enjoy keeping up with a number of blogs. I try to keep up with my favorites on at least a weekly basis, and more often than not visit several times a week.

Many of the blogs I love are written by friends I've only "met" online during my five years of blogging. These blogs provide INSPIRATION, community, entertainment, information, and friendship, and are written by Sian, Karen, Rinda, Becky, Missus Wookie, Barbara, Susanne, Alexa, Cate, Jacky, Alison, Sandra, Rachel, Cheryl, Jane, Beverly, and Monica.

There's also my friend Ellyn, who lives near enough to have lunch with regularly, and my friend Cheri, who I've now gotten together with in-person four years in a row! And a new member of the Scrappin' Goodtime Design Team, Sandy, who often has a new mini-album tutorial to share.

I know many of you follow some of these same bloggers, but today I'd like to encourage you to choose one new-to-you name on my list and click over and say Hello! And do come back and let me know who you visited and what you found interesting there, ok!


Today I'm linking up with Cate and her challenge to blog every day in May. Click here to join in!

Thanks for including me...there's a couple on your list that I don't know so I'll take a look at them.

Lots of names I recognise, with awesome blogs!

Cheryl M said...

Oh Melissa, I'm honored to be among your listed blogs. Thank you so much!
Your list is new to me...well except for Cate's blog now...but I've spent some time today visiting the "linked up" blogs and checking out some new-to-me blogs and will continue to revisit your list as well as others. This prompt was super fun and oh so interesting!

Becky said...

Lots of names I recognise too and thanks for including me, I was so honoured to see my name there. I hopped over to Rachel's blog as she was new to me - some lovely reading there :). Off to have a look at the other new to me blogs now.

I'm honored to be on your list. I know I haven't been the greatest blogger in awhile, but I'm so happy you still visit! I will definitely check out some of the other blogs you listed, many I'm familiar with but some are new.

Hi Melissa,
I was thrilled to be included in your list. AND I took the challenge. I visited and am now following Alison! She was new to me! Thanks.

Yes, those names are almost all familiar to me - and it's a blessing to be in this circle of blog friends. I visited Monica and saw her new command center, which makes me miss when the side of my fridge was covered with school stuff for the kids.

I've been away for a few days so have just seen your post, thanks for adding me to your list.
