Her Majesty recently posted her recipe for a good blog, so I thought I'd add my two cents to hers. I definitely agree with all of her ingredients for a good blog, except my shallow personality (yes, I have several personalities) loves loves loves it when I see lots of comments. In my deep heart of hearts, I'm okay with no or few comments. But when everyone else has something to say about it, I am so happy to hear it.
I really like these things also:
1. Useful information, such as recipes and photoshop tutorials. Pioneer Woman's site has helped me out a lot in both of these areas. Lizzard Tales often posts yummy recipes with great pictures. I also like Pots and Pins because she has such frequent recipes and she loves quilting, as I do. I could go on and on about these interesting blogs because there is a great adoption blog and one with good poetry, but if you want all of them, just surf the blogroll.
2. I love it when most or all of the posts on a blog would make any liquid squirt out of my nose from laughter if I were so foolhardy as to drink while reading. I never read Hadleyesque and drink at the same time for this reason. Sometimes I wish I could judiciously avoid drinking anything around Alex for the same reason. He likes to press advantages this way to my detriment.
There are lots of other things I like, but I need to go make dinner now. So I will conclude with this cute picture of Grace:
Because a mediocre entry can be much improved by a cute picture of a two-year-old. And also because it reminds me to be grateful that she is so cute. Then I am not angry when I find that she has taken all of the clothes out of her dresser and spread them all over her floor while quietly "napping." Also, it helps that she has placed half of her shirts, onesies, and a skirt around her neck in a huge bunch that makes her look like a warped flower with a child's face in the middle.
