Blogs, Blogs, Blogs

When I started blogging 6 months ago, I had no idea how big the blogosphere was. I thought my journey was going to be fun, but lonely. Of course, I knew my parents would read and maybe a few close friends would humor me, but I thought that was about it. How surprised was I to find that there was an entire world living in cyberspace. A world full of friendly bloggers from countries everywhere. These past six months have been so much fun and I’ve loved getting to know you all while reading your blogs. There is such a vast variety of blogs to explore. I am always learning new things and gathering fresh ideas. I’ve discovered there are Book Blogs, Inspirational Blogs, Cooking Blogs, Review Blogs, Mommy Blogs, Crafty Blogs, Business Blogs, Writing Blogs, and Funny Blogs. I can’t really decide which type of blog I love the best. I learn so many tidbits from each of them. My Book Blogging friends are always there with a new book recommendation. Between them and my mom, I am never without a good read. My Inspirational Blogging friends are always there to brighten my day and to remind me of an important Bible verse. My Cooking Blogging friends…well…they may have contributed to a few extra pounds on my hips, but it was worth it! I love all the great recipes being shared. Hopefully, you’ve all tried a few of mine too. My Review Blogging friends, especially Survey Junkie, have been so helpful in sharing insight into the review/giveaway world. I am so glad that I’ve had an opportunity to add it to my blog because it is so much fun. My Mommy Blogging friends have been there to show me, that it is not just me. There is a whole world of moms out there that are sharing in the same joys, fears, fun, and frustrations. My Crafty Blogging friends never cease to amaze me. I’ve always thought I was creative, but boy was I wrong. These ladies are outstanding. My Business Blogging friends are inspirational. They have shown that you can take a dream and make it a reality. My Writing Blogging friends give me hope. My dream is to one day have my stories published for the world to see. My Writing friends are facing the same ups and downs. Although many have yet to be published, some have seen their dreams come true. And finally, my Funny Blogging Friends are always there to share a laugh. Do you have a favorite type of blog? A blog that you just have to share? Grab a latte, put up your feet, and join the discussion!

**Don't forget to check out some of links in this post.  There are some great blogs out there! :)  If I didn't link up to you, it doesn't mean I don't love you, just that I ran out of room.

I love writing and humor blogs -- not much on giveaways, but I like connecting with other people the bestest!

Thanks Kel! I have shared a similar experience with the blogging world! I started playing one day just to see what would happen and things are just starting to take off! One of my most favorite parts is the friends I have made along the way! I wish we lived near eachother, as I would love to meet at the park and let our kiddos play together so we could chat! I also wanted to thank you for being such an amazing guest at Crazy Daisy today! What a treat for my readers!

Happy Day,
Jasey @ Crazy Daisy

I started blogging a little over a year ago and didn't have the slightest idea what was out here. Just started because a friend started sharing and I wanted to also. WOW!!! It is amazing. I'll go check out your links to your favs and just see what I can find.
Take care and have a terrific and blessed Independence weekend.

I like your breakdown of blogging categories. Not sure which one I fit into, but it's making me ponder my "niche"! I've only been doing this for a month or so...I had no idea this whole blog world existed. I just kind of stumbled upon it!
