I've become addicted to Google Reader. For those of you who don't know, it's a thing on google that organizes all the blogs you're subscribed to, and makes them all available on this neat little page, so you don't have go to like, 20 different blog sites to see if they (hopefully) added a new blog.
In the beginning, I was only subscribed to 2 blogs. I didn't even really get what blogs were until I one day was searching for photographers online, and I stumbled upon some really pretty fashion photos that were on this girl's blog. I became fascinated with all the things she posted because they were so beautiful! The other blog is my friend Wendy's. She's hilarious, and tells good stories filled with her awesome dry humor.
So, I started out with these 2, and then from them, I started checking out more blogs via links they would post. Now I'm subscribed to 10 blogs, and "following" 3 people. Every morning, I have a cup of coffee, and sit down at my computer, and before I even look at emails, I open up Google Reader, and look at all the new posts. It's like my own new edition of a magazine every day. I find them all really inspiring!* I'm subscribed to ones on art, Paris, flowers, Japan, street fashion, and some in between. One has inspired what I want my wedding to look like. Another gives me confidence in how I dress**. So now....I've been reading tons of blogs, and writing none.
As I've typed this blog (made just for myspace and my website), I've just created my own Blog! So holy poop--here we go!
*as I'm writing this, I'm wondering if this is boring people to tears. Are blogs so 3 years ago or something? I have no idea! I apologize if I'm behind the times and this is old news and/or you don't care about how much I'm into blogs these days. There always seems to be some lag time between popular things and me embracing them....I didn't start watching Sex & The City until last year!
**is it weird that I'm not telling you what blogs I belong to? the answer is probably "yes". I can't help it that I'm weirdly protective of them! :-o
