A bit of coolness about the whole blogging thing is finding new blogs and making new bloggy friends. One blog I've recently discovered is Thursday Drive. If you haven't already, check it out! I've very much enjoyed getting to know Jennifer. And apparently she wants to get to know me too, 'cause she tagged me for a pretty cool meme that is all about getting to know each other via old blog posts.

Here are the rules: Go back through your archives and post the links to your five favorite blog posts that you've written.

Link one must be about family.
Link two must be about friends.
Link three must be about yourself.
Link four must be about something you love.
Link five can be about anything you choose.

Post your five links and then tag five other people. At least two of the people you tag must be newer acquaintances so that you get to know each other better.

So. I only have 88 posts to choose from, but I think I can do this. :)
  1. Here is a list of the Little Mister's New Year's resolutions.
  2. I haven't written a lot about my friends; that's probably because they are all so far away. :( I know this post is very recent, but it's about old friends, so it fits.
  3. This post is about the Little Mister...but it's mostly about how I dealt with a tough situation.
  4. This one is easy. I love books, and reading, and I like to write about them too. In January I posted about my favorite book and the magic of reading aloud. I know this is two posts, but it was actually a two-part post, so I'm going to count it as one. Because I can.
  5. This one was actually difficult to choose...I decided to pick a post about going crazy...because it makes me laugh. :)
And now to tag five people...
  1. Amy's World
  2. Viking Conquest
  3. Lyrics of My Life
  4. Reality Testing
  5. Within the Woods
They aren't exactly new acquaintances...but since I've only been blogging since October I chose people whose blogs I really like but haven't read from the beginning. Because I can. ;)

Oh, and if you're tagged and you don't want to do the meme, no pressure. And if you're not tagged but want to do it anyway, go ahead!


  1. I've enjoyed getting to know Jennifer too - and you as well! Have a wonderful Monday and I'll see you soon. Kellan

  2. I love discovering new blogs- it's the best. I often wonder how many people, like me, blog during work hours... wasting time has never been better!

  3. Those were really good picks! Fun meme!

  4. LOL! I can't tell you how many times I recite Goodnight Moon to myself....

  5. Oh, this is fun. I've enjoyed reading more from you. :)

  6. Oh! Neat! Okay...I'll play..thanks!

  7. Hey! I read "The Giver" for the first time last year and I loved it as well. I didn't realize it was your favorite book. I enjoyed this Meme. Thanks for playing.

  8. Oh! I'll most certainly do it! It's going to be hard, though. I've been blogging for a long time.

  9. This was a great idea. I loved reading your back posts and have gone to Amazon to get The Giver and that opened a can of worms. Of course I had to add to my order to get the free shipping, and then they were giving a 4 for 3 special so I had to take advantage of that. Sigh...

  10. I love delving into new blogs I like!

  11. How have I missed this for two whole days?? Guess I'm not as caught up as I thought.

    These are such good choices--

    I love the resolutions! As for the story about Little Mister, I could feel your heartbreak. The Goodnight Moon post is classic! There are little ditties running through my head that will never. go. away.

    I've enjoyed getting to know you, also! And thank you for mentioning my little blog, and for so faithfully stopping by and commenting. I love reading yours, and you're in my blogroll.

    Thanks for taking part in the meme--
