Ask and Ye Shall Receive.

Ratalie Nose asked me to "Tell us about your favorite Blogs/ Posts to read".

I'm going to let you all in on a little secret, okay, its not so much a secret, as a confession. I am NOT a reader. I dont read books, hardly EVER. I have never read an "entire series" of anything, except for maybe Dr Seuss books, and yes, I am aware those are for children. I am a huge fan of Children's books, but not so much big long books. I have a short attention span. Okay... so what does this have to do with  blog posts?

I love to read brief posts, that are witty, informative, and that have pictures. I'm not sure why, but when I think of a LONG post with just lots of little black letters all over the screen and no pictures, I have a flashback to childhood.

When I was a kid, people still watched shows that were in Black and White. This always seemed like such a boring waste of time to me. As I got older, I came to realize the beauty of plots and story structure, even if there were no vibrant colors or exciting music. I still have a difficult time with old Westerns. We used to have a black and white TV very similar to this one on the right I found.

What blogs do I read? Well, the ones I read most are on the sidebar to your right. I have them listed in order of most recently posted. This way, it just informs me when someone has finally posted something new, as I vainly look at my last post on my blog, admiring my handiwork.

I hope this answers the question. I can't wait to delve into stories from my teenage years, which I am sure will take place very soon. I was a crazy teen, ok so I'm still crazy, but I do have a lot of good stories to tell. Any specific kinds of stories you are looking for?

I haven't read a real novel in a long time.. its all blog posts and news articles(.MANY OF THEM)

BUT- I have found a love for short stories.. and now Rory is big enough I have been reading her whole fairy tales. So at least we are past dr.suess being my only RealLife reading material-I can very much relate though :)

I am totally with you on the picture thing! I Love picture on blogs. A blog with out pictures is like a picture book without illustrations. It's no fun.

Your blog is always fun.

YES! I made the list!

I always feel guilty whenever I write a post with no pictures. I feel like I'm cheating.

I am the same way when it comes to blog posts....if there is a bunch of writing and NO pictures.....I just skim. I am not a huge reader.
