I Have A Challenge For You!

This is my second post of the day, so that tells you I've been pretty lazy and spending most of my time in front of the computer. I don't know why, but I'm really tired today so I don't feel like doing much else. I've been browsing through unknown blogs, hoping to find something interesting, thought provoking, or just plain funny. It hasn't all been for nothing because it gave me an idea for a great blogger challenge!

There are untold millions of blogs in cyberspace. Some of them are great (like all of ours!) and some are not. Some are in English (the only language that I speak and read fluently) and some are not. You can find many of them by hitting "Next Blog" at the top of this page or you can use Google Blog Search. I've done both. If you use Google Blog Search you can narrow down your choices by keywords, language and URL.

So here is my challenge. Find one blog worthy of following or commenting on (you must do one or the other) and share it on your own blog for the rest of us to see. It doesn't matter what sort of blog it is, that's up to you. It would be nice to chose something that you think would be of interest to your blog followers, but it's not necessary. Also, feel free to list more than one if you find more than one worth sharing. No fair using a blog that belongs to someone you know. That's cheating! We're trying to find some new gems out there. Posting this challenge with your results is encouraged, too. Invite your followers to play along. Share the love!! Are you up for the challenge?

Here's the blog I'd like to share (I may add more as the afternoon wears on). I used Google Blog Search and limited my results to cooking, English language and blogger.com or blogspot.com URLs.

  • Mennonite Girls Can Cook - This blog has some outstanding recipes and check out the pictures on the right side of the page (they link you to other recipes), they're beautiful. Worth taking a look at. I commented on the biscuit recipe, which I saved.
I can't wait to see who accepts the challenge and what new blogs we'll find! Get searching!

UPDATE - I'm still adding blogs to the list. Here's some more!
  • Walking Across America - This blogger is currently virtually walking across Michigan. He has some great info. about the cities he visits.
  • View Of You Photography - Gorgeous photographs and a weekly photo scavenger hunt you can participate in!

Thank-you ever so much for the gracious comment on my blog. It makes me feel great that someone takes time to say that to me. My blog came about from my son in Tex who suggested that him and his sisters, one in Chicago, and one in Virginia could keep informed where their Dad was located on his journey. I thought a blog was something that a bird did to ones car windshield. God Bless, Forrest

You're so welcome, Forrest! I admire your tenacity! I'll be checking back often to see where you are next.
