"next blog"

Periodically, I repeatedly click on "Next Blog" and see what I find. The last time I did this, I remarked about how many blogs are in Spanish and I vowed to purchase software so I could teach myself Spanish, which I did!!! Well, I bought the software. Naturally, I bought the best - Rosetta Stone. And, of course, I splurged and bought Spanish I, II and III. I think I did manage to get them out of the box. Sigh.

So - no vowing this time!!! (Is 'vowing' even a word?)

I will simply hit the Next Blog button and see what I find. I always find a jewel or two hidden among the rest.

Here we go .....

SCORE! Wrinkled Blankets appears to be a brand new blog with only two entries to date. But you can't go wrong with pictures of Steve McQueen and an entry of poetry by Virginia Woolf, for goodness sake. I can't wait to see where this goes, so I will follow for a while.

SCORE! Tulip in the Thicket is a blog by a woman who is probably about my age. She is blogging about various things, nothing meant to be profound or profane, but her quiet communication is interesting and touches my heart. I will follow for a while.

SCORE! To Know Him and To Make Him Known is a blog written by a young man who is spreading his Christian faith through his blog. Nice job, Nate! I will follow for a while.

Okay, that is enough for tonight. That was fun. Now it's time for bed!!!

Thanks for the encouragement! I appreciate it. I used to press the next blog button a lot too, but it seemed to lead to one nasty site after the next. Glad you had better luck.

Dear Catherine,
I'm so glad you found my blog by "next blogging"!
I haven't done that for awhile because I had about the same discouragement Nate had and I began to believe that there must not be any "legit" blogs on that "Next Blog" scan! But since you found mine, I guess there are some "legit" blogs! (I'm (trying) to be funny, I hope you know!) But honestly, I'm so glad you stopped by! Thanks for visiting! You are always welcome!
