CONFESSIONS OF A BLOG ADDICT:
Okay I freely admit it I am a blog addict. I love spending time every morning reading a few favorite blogs. It doesn't matter if the floor needs swept because I don't look down. It doesn't matter what I look like sitting at my computer laughing or spewing my coffee (there are some very funny authors who blog), because when I am reading a blog I get to escape into other bloggers reality or fictional world. It feels good and I don't have to turn on the television set and click channels to find something entertaining to keep me interested.
Bloggers are my friends and true I mostly read author blogs but have been known to read other blogs. I won't lie there are some days like the weekend that the weather channel can keep me amused but most mornings it's blogs that I look forward to especially this blog because I love to read the replies and we have a counter to keep track of how many visitors we get and YES I am addicted to checking the counter.
I have a life and I am an author I have family, friends and good books to keep me company. I have hobbies and a husband I definitely love my dog but what keeps me sane and ready to face each day are the blogs that I read. So bloggers keep up the good work. A couple I read are The Lipstick Chronicles, Cozy Chicks Blog, Margaritas and Mayhem, and The Writer's Plot. After that I might sweep the floor and look in the mirror. Right now I am especially interested in one of the blogs because the authors have set up where their characters are blogging and I wished I had thought of that idea because it's a good one. It's a way to get to know the character better and it's a way to know if you are going to like a series before you buy the book. I can see this idea catching on swiftly with other bloggers and I say brilliant idea.
Terri and I strive to be different we not only interview and guest author bloggers but instead also have quilters, cross stitchers, reviwers and a whole host of other bloggers. Our topics very and we NEVER want you to be bored when reading our blog. After all I know how important it is NOT to be bored first thing in the morning.
