To fill my thirst for reading, I mostly follow blogs. With small children in the house, my reading time is segmented into 5-20 minute intervals as I ride the bus, bathe a child, nurse a babe, et cetera. I also am an extremely nosy person, so blogs open the door for me to peek in upon the lives of others. I love to look around the homes of people. I love to look at their bookshelves, furniture, photos, and of course wardrobes, if ever given the opportunity. Off topic - how often do you notice people's shoes? If you aren't checking them out already, you should be. Not out of vanity, but pure curiosity. Shoes, books and blogs are, in my mind, the best way to really get to know a person.
I follow a number of blogs. I've become a bit of a connoisseur and I'm quite picky about what I'll read. My blogroll includes a mix of art, design, travel, DIY, fashion, photography and children. People always ask me what blogs I read and I'm usually a bit timid about sharing, for fear that people will realize how unoriginal I am. But, there are so many great blogs out there that I figure it's only fair that I share. I've linked some of my favorite blogs in the sidebar. I'll rotate my list periodically. Enjoy!
