I'm new to blogging, and I don't really "know" many bloggers yet, but the blogs below are ones I enjoy visiting, and you might also:

1. Kelly Riccetti at Red and the Peanut, a lovely blog about birds.

2. Elizabeth Patch’s More to Love Sketchbook blog. Her blog focuses on positive self-image, and her charming illustrations complement her writing.

3. Alicia Paulson’s blog, Posie Gets Cozy. Cozy is the perfect description.

4. “The Expatresse” writes about life in Moscow in “The Beet Goes On”, a blog I discovered through SheWrites.com.

5. Crazyauntpurl.com—This blog’s combination of humor and introspection blow me away. And the cute kitty photos don’t hurt.

  2. ....ahhhhh!! You are sooo nice! Thank you for thinking of me!! I will definitely pass it on. I think I might give it to my Aunt who has a new blog. It may take me a week or so before I can get it put together!! I'm glad Laure got you blogging!

  3. One of the best things about blogging for me has been "meeting" so many nice and generous people. I am greatly enjoying the blogosphere!
