My blog categories

Susan wrote a really great post with her blog categories. I decided to follow suit because mine are slightly different.

Blogs I read to keep in touch:
these are mostly the friends I had PB (pre blogging) but also include a few new ones. I like hearing about their day by day antics and seeing what's going on in their lives.

Blogs I read for utilitarian ideas:
these are blogs that give me ideas on running my day to day life...housekeeping, organizing, large families, etc.

Blogs I read that inspire me:
these are the blogs that constantly lead me back to God and/or make me think

Blogs that I read just because I like their writing:
these blogs are written by great writers. As I told one of them,they could write about getting the flu and make it entertaining and inspiring.

Of course many blogs are in more than one category, a few of the ones I read are in all.

And then there is, of course, the category of blogs I don't read. LOL! Those fall into a two sub-categories. Those I don't read on purpose: un-Godly, whiny, political or based on some subject that I am not interested in; and those I haven't discovered yet. ;-)

I figured out the reason I like reading blogs so much. It's like getting to read your favorite magazine with your favorite authors and it's new Every Day! As I go through my bloglines on any given day I get articles on all sorts of subjects, recipes, book and movie reviews, poetry, current events, opinion pieces and even humor. I couldn't ask for more. Thank you to all my favorite authors who make each issue a priceless gift!

This is fantastic!
I struggled with blog categories when I first switched over from HSB to Blogger and came up with the ones I did...only two of course.

I love that you've categorized yours into so many different categories. It's brillian!

Of course, after the garage post -- I'd think the way you butter toast was perfect. *L*

I really like the way you have your blog now. And I don't think the banner is too big! Banners are supposed to be big! The only thing that I wasn't sure about is the spot for current prayers, recently answered prayers and your blogs that you like. But I decided that I like it. It had to grow on me! LOL!

I've been thinking and thinking about this I wanted to come back to it and comment here.

I just love your comparison to "your favorite magazine" and I wanted you to know. Matter of fact, I gave up the Drudge report for blog reading. ;-)

My favorite blogs really are like good magazines..and every now and again, I go out and look at others. Just like standing at the Barnes & Noble or Borders magazine racks.

LOVE it and will quote you in an upcoming post.
