Wanted: Your favorite bloggers

Every now and then I take a trip through the comments on your blogs and follow a link back to a person I've never read before just to see who they are and what kind of blog they have. Sometimes I stumble on someone that I think I might want to read again, and sometimes I just move on. It's an inexact science but certainly one way to grow your list of friends.

But now I'd like to try something different. Kind of a social network suggestion kind of thing if you will. What I'd like you to do is leave me 3 links to bloggers you don't normally see me visiting and who don't show up here in my comments. Knowing what you know about me... my interests, sense of humor, shoe size etc, see if you can recommend some new bloggers that you think I might like. Then over the next few weeks I'll stop by and see if we have anything in common. Kind of like speed dating but only really slowly and not with the intention of taking them home.

Anyway, that's all. I think this will be fun... and thanks for playing!

This is too much pressure!! What if I recommend something you don't like. Then I'll feel guilty. It's like sending you to a restaurant and you end up getting food poisoning. That's on me and I'm not sure I can handle that--especially with the holidays coming.

Well, now. My favorite bloggers and the ones I think you might like are probably very different! :)

On page five of digg, they have "Top 50 Blogs of 2009". I kind of cruised through them, and one that looked kind of cool was
"1000 Awesome Things" at

Thank you all for the great suggestions. I've put them all into a folder in my feed reader and have already started reading them. Excellent choices from every one of you!

Hi Jeff!

I'm recommending a local Idaho blog that I know you've never heard of:

The Otis G Experience

You and Otis G have a couple of things in common. He's a musician and has a great sense of humor.

Oh, and there's one other blog which all of your readers simply must start reading!

This blog is so badly written that it's hilarious:

A Family Runs Through It

Have fun reading!

I'm really digging that 1000 Awesome Things blog. Here are two examples:

"The sound of snow crunching under your boots" and

"Riding home with a box of pizza on your lap"

Tell me, are those not awesome?! Thanks for posting this, Jeff. I wouldn't have known about that site otherwise.
