What Blogs Do You Read?

I love to write. I've been blogging for over 3 years now, on 3 different blogs (and a few guest posts). It has been a great outlet for me, as a way to work through thoughts in my head. I think I've been more amazed that anyone wants to listen to what I have to say.

I also love to read. I've traditionally read 90+% non-fiction books, from theology to leadership to biographies and more. And now I follow 50-60 blogs across a variety of categories. I don't read every post from every blog; using Google Reader, I skim the headlines and see what might be interesting for me, or for any of my friends and followers.

I have learned so much from reading from a variety of blogs (besides have a streak of winning some give-aways). Because the truth is, if you are a parent you are a leader. And leaders are readers. You have to continually grow and learn, so that you can better disciple your children.

Here are some blogs that I've started following over the past few months; maybe you'll enjoy one of them as well:
  • Kickin' it in Buddenville.  This is by our friend Susan Rice. Any blog that comes out of Allendale County is worth following.
  • Julian Freeman.  I don't always get theology stuff, and I don't always get Canadians (sorry Nicky & Des). But this guy is good.
  • JBM Thinks.  For any parent who has a child that plays organized sports, this is a must-follow.
  • Enough of the Cat Talk.  In the past 15 months, I've become suddenly passionate about education. Darlena brings up some great talking points.

Now, let me know in the comments: What's your favorite blog? If you have a few, you can name your favorite "famous" blog (100's of readers) and your favorite "obscure" blog.

  1. I only read one blog (I mean, in addition to yours, of course) The Suburban Matron. She is so, so funny. So, that's just entertainment, I guess. I count on you to help me be a better person.

  2. Hey thanks so much for the 'shout out' and the kind words. Since you were so nice as to recommend me, I'll overlook the slamming of Canadians. Or maybe I'll just overlook that because I'm Canadian and we're nice and peaceful (aka wimpy). :)


  3. Braeton -- I hope I don't let you down. You must have low expectations, though.

    Julian -- You're welcome. And I appreciate your graciousness towards me. :)

  4. Since you like to read, I wondered if you might be interested in learning more about cryptic crosswords. If so, this is a link to a post I did recently on cryptic crossword clues that involve anagrams. Cryptic Crossword Clues - Anagrams
