Addicted to Blogs

It's funny because a little over a year ago I didn't even know what a "blog" was. Now not only do I know what one is, but I have one of my own and, worst of all, I'm totally and completely addicted to reading them. I guess it'd be okay if it were just one or two blogs but it's WAY more than that! So I thought I'd share my addiction with everyone. You can thank me later. :)

The blogs I read can be broken down into categories.

First came the scrapbooking blogs:
Stacy Julian
Lisa Bearnson
Ali Edwards
Becky Higgins
Cathy Z
Elizabeth Kartchner
Donna Downey

Then came blogs I found thru the Bethany adoption forums - these are all written by women who are hoping to adopt or have already been blessed by adoption:
Our journey to adoption
William, Glenna & Isaiah
Blessed by 3 miracles
I love you more than there are stars in the sky
sugar & spice speaks out

One of the biggest problems with reading blogs (besides eating up your time) is that most blogs share links to other blogs (just like I'm doing right now). So you just keep adding more and more blogs to your favorites, like these:
Nesting Place
creative organizing
Recipes to Share
Hello my name is Heather
no time mom
Today's Creative Blog

So there you have it - my secret revealed. The first step in ending an addiction is admiting you have a problem...right??? Oops, I gotta go I saw a great idea on "Nesting Place" when I was creating the link!!!

Maybe I'll try to stop tomorrow...

Touching Infertility Video

Though infertility is not what has kept us from being parents again, I can really relate to this video. (Thanks to Angie and Aaron for posting a link on their blog.) The only thing I would add is that instead of unsolicited advice I want PRAYERS (in addition to the other things listed towards the end of the video) - nothing can help more than that!
