In which I link a lot, so I'm not required to actually think

All right, people. The list on my sidebar is actually GROWING, and freaking me out more than just a little bit. I don't even know why I'm on the computer. (Oh yeah - BECAUSE I DON'T WANT TO WORK.)

So to maximize procrastination with a minimum amount of brain power, I give you:

PEOPLE WHO SHOULD BE FAMOUS: PART ONE.

First off we have DaNae. Many of you know her. If you don't, ask yourself the deeply profound question - WHY ARE YOU DEPRIVING YOURSELF OF ENDLESS HUMOR AND WIT?! Many a moon ago, we were up against each other in a cat fight Mormon Mommy Blogs Spotlight. I beat her. And I can only conclude that my readers don't know her, because why on earth would they vote for me when I'm a total hack and she's gay?

Next up is Rachel. Her blog title rocks. (Trapped Between a Scream and a Hug - doesn't that describe us all?!) She is a wonderfully honest blogger and I love getting in her head. She'll make you laugh, make you cry, astound you with cleverness - and sometimes all three. Plus also she knows JaNae, who knows Heidi, who I know. So we're practically sisters.


(I would like to point out that I just used the word "cleverness." Hmmmm. That's ironic, somehow.)

And one of my favorite new finds, Stepper. She makes me want to reach through the computer screen and give her a big wet kiss on her pretty little face. I have actually gone through her archives and read every one of her blogs. Cuz I'm freaky like that. End of story.


Last today is Kara. Remember a while ago when I posted about being super stressed? She turned me on to Cherish Bound, an awesome online book-binding company that helped me whip out my Brazilian scrapbook in mere hours. The site is super easy to use, fast, and makes gorgeously professional books. Email Kara if you're interested - and mention me! She also has a blog detailing her journey recovering from cancer. Read it. You won't regret it.

Why are you still here? Get lurking!

Okay, I'm scared. I already have WAY too many subscriptions on my reader, but I'm still tempted to check out a few of those links. Must . . . resist . . .

Lara said...

So the only one I read is DeNae, but my reader is so full....I will have to check these out anyway. Since you said so.

Shantel said...

You to do list makes me feel better. I am only moving 20 minutes away. I can do this. AND I know I am not gay. That makes all the difference.

"Seeeeeeeeee, I told ya!"

Stress increase = post increase.

Which is why I'm here reading it. Should be packing. But would MUCH rather read your blog!

Kristina P. said...

DeNae is actually my lesbian lover. Don't tell her that, though.

Rachel said...

Thanks for the shout out.

And if I was in the midst of moving I would be blogging too. Currently I am in the midst of avoiding chores. And what am I doing? Blogging! I really need to do the dishes. . .

DeNae said...

OK, it turns out I only had 24-hour homosexuality, so Kristina is going to have to go back to Lindsay Lohan. I just felt your readers should know I'm no longer available.

And thank you, darling cat fighting pal, for the kind words. I've been down that procrastinating road, baby. Just throw everything into gigantic rubbermaid bins with the label "Stuff to ignore when we get to Arizona" and take your kids to the beach.

That's how I survived my move back to the states!

(BTW, my book should have arrived at your mom's house by now. Merry Scoliosis Week!)

Kimberly said...

I have to echo Annette's comment...I can't handle any more!

Kazzy said...

So many great blogs, so little reading time. I will go check some of these links out!

Deb said...

What are you doing to me? More blogs to read? Ay, yi, yi (as we say in Texas).

I hope all is well with you and your wonderful family.

Jody Blue said...

Danae doesn't have pictures, most of the time you do. I require a visual to keep me interested.

JustRandi said...

Yay for new bloggy friends! I love links... even though my google reader is bulging.

Shawn said...

I checked the links---thanks!

I am trying to keep my blog roll down to a mere 80 people, so I may check back once in a while....


And hey---I should be famous----well, in my own mind anyway.

Kara Herron said...

Your the BOM! Is that how you spell that? Anyway, thanks for the plug. I'm glad you liked Cherish Bound. I love it. Can't wait to hear from you when you see your book.

Take Care and have a happy move (done that way tooooo many times!)

-Kara

Jen said...

I'm with Annette. Especially now that I'm sans computer. Maybe if I just go to bed I'll forget you ever posted those links, and I'll be able to move on with my life...

Brittany Ann said...

Wahoo, new reads! Love it. Thanks for the suggestions, and good luck with your lit.

If you tell me that something is good, then it is good. I will check out the links.

I'm sure I won't be disappointed...especially after reading some of these comments.

Whitney R said...

I'm trying to catch up on all the blog friends I have now! But I might very well check them out when I have a spare minute.

Shelley said...

Ok so I took a little lurking tour. You've found some really good blogs out there. I just want to know how you do it all. Your to do list is staggering, your posts are frequent and funny. You kind of are amazing.

Barbaloot said...

Fun idea--thanks for the lurking tips:)

I heart DeNae! She rocks my world. Even if she is straight!
