The Bullet List {Some Of Our Friends}

by Destri on May 27, 2010

So I am preparing to speak at the Casual Bloggers Conference this weekend and I am now starting to feel some nervous nellies coming on.  I love conferences, especially meeting new friends I have made and catching up with old ones.  I love all the feel good vibes, the comradeship, and the overall knowledge to be gained.  But I have never spoke at one.  Sheesh.  At least I am first in the morning, then I have the rest of the day to catch my breath!

I will be speaking about Blogging Zen on a panel with Mrs. Marta (dying to meet her) and Susan Hall, whom I have just recently gotten to know, and looking forward to meeting.  The subject is appropriate because heaven knows I can’t tell you how to master twitter, make a million blogging, or how to use photoshop, but I have spent quite a bit of time trying to balance my online life and fitting it into my real life without it taking over.  So I feel pretty good about that.  Excited actually.

Part of what I will talk about is keeping up with blogs.  I use a google reader of course, but one of my balancing techniques is to read our friends (readers).  It is really the only way to get to know them.  One thing I am horrible with is commenting, so they probably never know I am there.  Anyhoo, it got me to thinking about all the great posts I have read lately and I thought it would be fun to share a few today.

  • I love this post.  The way she describes what may seem to some as an ordinary day, makes you believe in fairy tales again, and realize you may be living one.
  • Am really loving this series on 101 ways to eat plain yogurt.  Have you looked at how much sugar is in flavored yogurt?  It is insane.  I eat plain yogurt every day, and this series has given me a new way to look at it.
  • Just found this new blog through a comment, it’s awesome!  She was a science teacher, and has started Science Mommy, a collection of science projects your kids can do.  My sisters boys would love this!  Jileen, you too!
  • I love it when I hop over and find a post like this.  You mean I am not the only one?!  (Tina, you will like this gal)
  • You know I love vintage pillow cases, so of course I loved this
  • I clicked over to Diana’s blog to find all of these shoes…under $16! They are adorable.  Looking forward to meeting her at the conference.
  • I cannot wait to try this recipe.
  • This post made me think about what my kids have taught me. I love it when a post makes me think.
  • What a great idea.
  • This blog is a great idea, here is the about page, I think it would be a fun one to follow!
  • Kids bored?  You MUST go check this out! Seriously, the creativity in kids when encouraged is amazing!
  • I want to build this, all by myself.
  • I popped onto Ronita’s blog to find this quote, so true.
  • I needed this tutorial, I have just the hankie for it.  Seriously, I do, it is in the picture!

Oh I could go on and on for days, there have been so many good ones lately.  But I really must go and decide what to wear.  I hate that part.  I just wanted to share a bit of what I have been reading :)  If you have a favorite leave a link!

Oh and the picture above?  Well, I was thinking I could start a little series with pillowcases and add them to the Thursday line up…what do you think?  I love that pillow case, I have saved it trying to think of the perfect project, any ideas?

If you are going to the Casual Blogger conference please come say hi!
