Welcome to another installment of You’re Appreciated, where I feature three blogs that I feel you’re gonna love…or at least like…or at least visit cause I told you to and you trust my judgement explicitly. Anywho, I’m up to over 170 favorite blogs so this is my way of getting the word out. God love a blog!
Plain Ole Mike is a humor blog penned by Mike. (Who else?) Here you can find “all the world’s inanity and insanity as seen through one pair of lopsided goggles.” I love this guy’s writing style. His stories are like an hysterical runaway train, starting with one idea and then blazing through dozens more like a bolt of lightening. He makes Six Degress of Kevin Bacon look as short as a list of words that rhyme with orange. If you think my posts are long, Mike takes it to a whole ‘nother level. He has the talent of turning the most mundane, every-day events into wildly hilarious adventures. For a shorter read, check out his post Nothing Says True Love Like Mayonnaise and Bacon. Trust me, it’s worth checking out “The Miker Side of Life.”
I absolutely love The Get Smart Blog. This blog is run by Bridget Ayers who claims to be “just a girl that likes tech, Internet, and social media stuff.” I’m all for a gal who can admit to loving
“stuff.” Seriously, this blog is totally smart — from its smart design to its smart writing. And I totally adore its uber-smart, uber-sexy, and oh-so uber-60’s James bond style blog header. If you wanna check out her smart response to my smart comment regarding one of her reader’s not-so-smart comment that included the word “fags”, check it out here. So do what I did. Get smart and go visit The Get Smart Blog.
Thru Chocolate Eyes is penned by Rioholly who, in my book, is a true poet’s poet. And yes, this is a poetry blog so get over it! Rioholly describes her blog as “Dancing words: poetry and other blissful language persuits, embraced by pictures.” Her words strike a true chord with me. Her use of images, both photographic and word placement, evoked emotions in me that I haven’t felt since I first started writing poetry over 35 years ago. You can even select your own mood music to listen to while you peruse her writing/images gallery. Now go brew yourself a nice cup of herbal tea, settle down in your favorite yoga position on a big cushy pillow, call up her blog on your pc or laptop, and start looking at the world Thru Chocolate Eyes.
