Well, I've been planning for a little while to draw attention to some new bloggers and some fun sites and it works out well for today since a migraine laid me out flat yesterday evening. Migraines have a way of killing creativity. So without further ado.
Check out these new bloggers who I think have something interesting and worthwhile to share.
Luann Dunkinson has a whole website as well as a blog featuring her watercolors. A mutual friend showed me her site and I think her paintings are really very lovely.
Misticblu is another brand new blogger who has already shared some interesting observations from life and her job. She said I inspired her to start blogging. Whoda thunk it? I'm flattered, and glad to introduce her.
Lulda is our third new blogger and although I know she is making the rounds through institutions like Friday 55 I wanted to draw attention to her. She's written some marvelous 55s and shared some terrific insights.
If you need a chuckle these sites do it for me.
Totally Looks Like is a collection of side by side shots of celebrities who either look like each other or celebrities who look like strange objects. The Phil Spector entry cracked me up.
Lolcats is animal pictures, mostly cats, with ridiculous captions. Ok, like the previous entry it is for those who are easily amused but I like it.
Cakewrecks is for those looking for baked horror. It's a fairly new site but has taken off like wildfire. Who knew there were so many professional cake decorators completely lacking in any ability?
Other regular haunts...
Here's a game I am compelled to play every day. I have a deck of Set cards at home but no one will play with me anymore because I'm too fast. In addition to Set, I play the Quiddler game on that site as well.
Postsecret is part of my Sunday morning ritual. It's a confessional in art. Some of the secrets shared are silly, some are sweet, some are heartbreakingly sad.
Finally, when I am really trying to avoid any kind of productivity I head over to Mental Floss. It's got trivia, quizzes (not of the "which underwear style is my soul" variety though those sorts at Blogthings can be fun to shred like I shred memes), snarky t-shirts, fun articles.
EDIT: Published it hours ago with the wrong date so it's been sitting several posts down the line...that's what a headache does for me...
