Blogging is a curious addiction. You write because it's as much a part of your life as eating and sleeping. Blogging however, allows you to write and perhaps even have someone read your thoughts. If you're very lucky, they may even post a comment, and usually it is complimentary.
Once you start blogging, you begin to look at others' creations. It's kinda like an artist going to another painter's exhibition. But there are a lot of blogs out there! Almost too many.
However, I have stumbled across a few favourites, and here they are. I'm sure I'll be adding to this list over the next little while:
Riley's Political Rant is an excellent political site by Riley Hennessey, a Dalhousie Masters student. His thoughts are well-expressed and from a very objective and philosophical perspective. I look forward to reading more.
At Home In Hespeler is a cute site by a Dad who seems perplexed by his family's antics. Brian hails not far from my home town in Southern Ontario. He also waxed poetic on the art of blogging, and how gratifying it is to have an audience.
I love Plattytalk, although some of Dave's visitors are a bit, shall I say, animated? He should be posting a warning. PG13 at least. But I guess out there in Alberta, it's probably a bit more rough and tumble than here. I hear they have cowboys out there. Then again, that doesn't mean anything these days, does it? Dave's comments are great though. The thing I like the most is that if he gets angry, he does something about it! He writes letters to M.P.'s!! (I used to do that, but I think my M.P. has a filter to block out my name from incoming email.) Dave also did a great post called, "I Blog therefore.." He has come up with a mission statement that I think could be used by bloggers everywhere.
Well, those are three good ones. I need to find one in B.C., and one up in the Arctic somewhere. Then I'll have representation from sea to sea to melting glacier field.
