The Getting To Know The Blogger Challenge: Blogs I Visit

I am participating in the Getting To Know The Blogger Challenge sponsored by A Little Unhinged.

13)  Three blogs you visit enthusiastically

Ooooo… this is hard.  Since I’ve started doing more reaching out and participating in more stuff it’s really hard to play favorites.  I don’t want anyone to be upset that I didn’t say that I love their blog.  Truth be known I follow well over 50 blogs!  I follow mainly funny blogs, Mommy blogs, food blogs, and a few others. I really enjoy them all! I’ve thought this over very very carefully.  Here are some I have been reading since before I started really seriously blogging.

1.  Parenting, Illustrated With Crappy Pictures– This was the first blog I ever read.  I never paid much attention to blogs before that.  It was the Target post that a friend shared on her wall on Facebook that got me started (any time I refer to the hypnotic eye, that’s what I’m talking about!).  After seeing this post I sat down and read THE ENTIRE BLOG.  I laughed and laughed, and have followed religiously ever since.  This blog got me started blogging.  I love how she tells her stories. I have a lot of stories to tell!

See? Funny?

2.  Divine Secrets of a Domestic Diva-OMG!  This is a seriously funny blog.  Love it love it love it!

Some families have an Elf On A Shelf. She has a Troll in the Hole!

3.  (A Tie) 100 Days of Real Food and Super Healthy Kids– I consult these blogs almost constantly for ideas. I’m not saying I follow a lot of them, but I try.  100 Days focuses on living on food that is unprocessed.  She has a lot of great ideas that we use in our recipes.  The whole wheat biscuit recipe in there is awesome!  Super Healthy Kids focuses on making food that is fun and healthy, and how to get the most nutrition out of different recipes.  I have a list of things that I want to try this next month.

What kid wouldn’t want to eat these cuties? Oh yeah, my son.

In case you haven’t figured it out, I like funny Mom blogs and healthy food blogs. You’d think that I’d be happier and healthier…

So there are all of those other blogs-I love you, I read your posts regularly, sometimes I get a little behind but I do try to keep up. You are all special to me and I am going to start making a weekly list of my favorite blog posts, just like another friend of mine does.  It’s nice to recognize everyone who works so hard to get their writing read!

These Are A Few Of My Favorite… Blogs

Do you have the song stuck in your head?  Yes you’re welcome.

Today I wanted to take a break from my Idea Diarrhea a bit and share some of the stuff that I really like (not things I love so much I want to marry them, that’s a different post).  I read a LOT of blogs every day.  I guess I have to consider it research.  I just love to read, and give me a good story with a good laugh or two and I’m hooked.  I’m a Mom, so most of the blogs I follow are Mommy blogs, though looking at my list there are a few that are not.

So here are 15 of my fave blogs.  If I had an award to give, I would.  I’m kind of broke but I’m sure I could come up with something.  A trophy made out of homemade playdough?  A sculpture made out of old Cheerios?  A year’s supply of dryer lint?  Hurry and get yours today before the dog eats it.

Parenting, Illustrated With Crappy Pictures-I have said it before and I’ll say it again, she is so funny!  I love the illustrations she draws-it’s certainly unique.  This is the blog that more or less started it all for me.  Her sense of humor inspired me to use mine.  It’s good when funny people use their powers for good and not evil, don’t you think?

Scary Mommy-I love this site!  You will feel better that you are in good company of the not so perfect Mommies if you visit this site.  Read the Confessions IF YOU DARE!  You may very well feel much better about your parenting skills.

Attack of The Redneck Mommy– Here is one lady I really admire-she’s not afraid to be her own funny, original self.  She’s raising two teens and a child with special needs, all the while maintaining a wicked sense of humor.

Motherhood is an Art-An inside look at Motherhood to three adorable children.  Lots of good storytelling.  I can certainly relate to her!

The Domestic Goddess-Fellow redheads unite!  Marj Hatzell deals with life with the best sense of humor.  I found it by accident one night and have been a loyal follower ever since.  She’s awesome, you should read it sometime.

Dumb Little Man As it says, it’s tips for life.  It is.  Good useful stuff.

Adrea in Wonderland– Ever read one of those blogs where you think, wow, I wish this person was my friend in real life because she’s cool?

Lady Or Not…Here I Come-This one is not for the faint of heart or the easily offended by stuff that is a little, um, naughty.  She is , however, one of the best humor bloggers out there!

stark.raving.mad.mommy– I follow her on Facebook.  She posts on a lot of different sites. Good stuff!

Rants From MommylandI just recently started following this blog.  She will make you ROFLMAO.

Super Healthy Kids– I started following this blog trying to find healthy lunch ideas for my son.  I’ve had not so great luck with him, but have found some winning dishes for the other little eater in the house.  I love fun, healthy food!

Girl On The Contrary-I found this blog through the comments on a WordPress forum about humor, I believe.  I love her perspective and her observations about, well, everything.

dirtyrottenparenting– Another blog I found through a forum, and so glad I did.  Funny stuff!

Aiming Low– This is a humor blog that is a collection of a lot of different stuff from different people.  I’m hoping to be published on here sometime soon.

My Brain on Kids–  Another great funny blog about parenting (and Adam Levine)!

I hope you maybe find a new blog to love by clicking on these links!  Is there a blog that I should be reading but am not? Let me know!  Do I follow you and you follow me and you’re sad because you’re not on my list?  I love all the blogs I follow, but I don’t have room to list them all on here!   So I picked the ones I a) comment on the most b) post frequently and c) I’ve followed for more than a month.   🙂  I don’t want anyone sad (or burning down my house).   Maybe you’ll make my next list. *wink*
