NaBloPoMo Day10 - Why a Roundup?

I can only speak for myself, but one of the top reasons I have a love of blogging is because of the reading. There are writers in my online world that inspire me, motivate me, make me laugh, touch my heart, and more than anything, make me feel fortunate that I just read their words.

I'm borrowing from Melisa Wells of Suburban Scrawl for my NaBloPoMo Day 10: Copycatting her blog roundup. It's a perfect NaBloPoMo post because more than anything, NaBlo'ing is about momentum and community: write, read, share.

If you've seen something this week while visiting NaBlo'ing blogs, leave it in the comments, please. We bloggers love a good read.

Here's my picks from this week:

--Mandyfish with a tale of one of the world's worst bosses. "So, You Want to Work in Advertising." I wanted more! (let me be clear, not more suffering for Mandy, just more story) I love everything Mandy posts.

--Tina of The Gallivanting Monkey. "Anna Stesia, " a post with writing that doesn't let you breathe. Tina will be a regular for you after you discover her.

--From Rita Arens of Surrender, Dorothy, "The Run." A meditation on doing something when you just don't know how you'll put one foot in front of the other. The reasons for it, spelled out beautifully by her.

--A blogger you need to know, Arnebya. Her post "Not the Records," will have you cry-laughing. Is Arnebya always this funny? No, sometimes she is perfectly smart.

--Tracy of Sellabitmum. Tracy is a blogger I share a lot, she is funny, honest, down to earth, and interesting. Her post, "The Republican Next Door" is good for a chuckle, but you'll find heavy on real life posts from her, too. She's a great follow.

Happy NaBloPoMo sharing everyone!

  1. Thanks! One of my favorite parts about this little NaBloPoMo experiment is that I am reading more than I have been the last few months.

  2. I love you. Thank you for including me. Mandy is new to me and Tina I adore because she makes me almost pee from laughing. Tracy his hilarious amid the snow, and Rita will make you feel (and they both make me happy, so there's that).

  3. I loved Tracy's post!!!

    I need to go read some of the others, but I need to go to bed first. ;) Tomorrow! I'll catch up tomorrow.

  4. I love that my favorite bloggers are posting every single day and I love finding new blogs to love.

  5. Denise: I really need to do this once a week even after nablo.
    Amanda: the community being revived is nice, isn't it?
    Arnebya: that post, I heard it in your voice and I cracked up.
    Angela: I like the back to life at the nablo blogs!
    Andrea: I still have to come visit you!!
    Robbie: That's my favorite thing, too.

  6. I love doing a round up, so I'm doing weekly ones for NaBloPoMo. Arnebya's was so good! Off to check out the others.

  7. Thanks, Alison. I think I'm going to keep doing it. I do a big ICYMI on Sundays, but those are websites. Going to do other bloggers now.
