It's Blog Day 2008! Let's Celebrate!

Blog Day 2008

And how do we celebrate this special day? Well, those of us who have participated have searched far and wide to find five new blogs to list and recommend. The idea of Blog Day is to have bloggers all around the globe clicking away to blogs they've never been to before, and possibly making new friends along the way! So let's see who I've found in the great big blogosphere to introduce you to!

1) The first blog I found to share with you, I found through Blog Around the World, and immediately it had my attention. What American wouldn't want to read about a fellow countrywoman who is now living in the beautiful country of Scotland? Mary doesn't have a huge readership, but I hope that after today she will! I read her entire blog and it's fabulous and filled with the most beautiful pictures! Visit her and her adorable hubby, Luis, at My Life in Scotland.

2) I found Stephanie at Mama Still Wears Gucci. Stephanie lives in the beautiful state of Montana and has a wonderful, funny, witty writing style that immediately sucked me in. She's got one post up about swimming through a pool of portobello mushrooms. Yep, this is my kinda chick!

3) I don't know about you, but I don't know anyone online from India! Jill from The Perlman Update lives there with her husband and kids, and I bet we could all learn a lot from her about an alternate culture. Again, she's not a native so it could be really neat to look at India through her eyes.

4) Mylene's blog, The Sotelo Family looks brand spanking new, but just a glance at her beautiful family was enough to put her on my list. I bet she's got some great family stories to tell!

5) Now how cool is this? Ralph and Donna are retired, full-time RV'ers! Join me in reading Adventures with Tassie (the RV's name) and tagging along on all their RV'ing adventures. Now this should be fun! Who knows where they'll go next!

I hope all of you take the time to visit these beautiful blogs I've found, and leave them a message that Justine sent ya by! And happy Blog Day 2008 to all!!!!!!!!!!

    Clay? I'm confused. If you meant my husband Larry, he doesn't like having his picture taken either.

    I'm back and raring to blog, blog, blog again.
    Although it will have to wait a little while longer as I'm off down to the in laws for takeaway and to hand over their goodies from Florida - six packs of Tums ant-acid sugar free variety (they don't have them here although why he insists on sugar free when he eats like it's his last day on earth is beyond me. MIL's gift is two packs of Neutrogena soap and Neutrogena Norwegian Formula hand cream - both of which you can get here but for some reason she always asks us to bring her some back to maintain her supply - which I might add would keep the whole of the UK in handcream for a month.
    I did throw in a fridge magnet and a couple of bottles of gin too!

    Will have a look at those blogs when I get home.

    and..was it ust me or did anyone else read the image as 310g Day? I though it was some weight loss event! Maybe I'm still a bit jet-lagged?
