What's the Draw? 3  

Posted in

So have you checked out those blogs yet? I've sort of been giving you the chronological version of when I found these great blogs. Although the first ones I mentioned absolutely kept me coming back for more, the others have been icing on the cake.

One day I was reading Plainolbob and he mentioned a blogger that had a great impact on him. He suggested (strongly) that we check this amazing woman out. I figured that since I was only following about 75 blogs at the time (yeah not kidding) I could surely fit one more in the group. That's when I found Rae. Weather Vane is a must read. I remember the first time I checked it out after the suggestion from bob. I was totally blown away. Rae has a wonderful writing style. She gives you insight into her adventures as a grandmother, her past as a nurse and she has a great way of putting you into a differnt time when she tells about a little piece of her past. Very uplifting blog, and I always come away feeling better for reading her post.
If you don't follow Rae yet, I would highly suggest it...

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to live an adventurous life? I often felt that I had enjoyed some adventure in my short life until I started reading Rambling Russ. This guy has done it, seen it, or watched it. If you want some excitement this post is a great example. Russ gets bonus points from me because my son absolutely loves his stories. We read them together and he has told me that they are much better than any history lesson he has received at school so far. Check this gifted writer out and you will be pleasantly surprised.

I was a huge tv fanatic growing up. I loved all the old shows, like Happy Days, Laverne and Shirley, Leave it to Beaver. The list goes on and on. Imagine my delight to one day be jumping around checking out blogs and finding one that wanted me to guess a theme song....I was unfortunately too late because the answer had already been given. In fact almost everytime now I'm too late but I don't care I just listen to it and guess before checking the comments :) These are those theme posts I'm talking about here.

I Think It's Interesting written by none other than ASBLACKASOBAMA. Or as we like to call him ABAO. Great posts about a ton of differnt stuff. If you check back a few posts you will see some really cool pics from the recent earthquake (check the post to figure out which earthquake I'm talking about). He has an interesting take on so many things and if you like pics then check it out. Lots of good stuff and more importantly quality writing.

Did you ever watch soap operas? I confess that when I was a young teenager I stayed at my grandparents house during the summer a lot. I got hooked on a couple that I watched with my grandmother. The thing I enjoyed the most was coming up with a name for them. Some of them were pretty good. I think I found a great name for a new soap opera...The Shadow of my Life. This is a great story...It's about a father named Cappy Joey and..oh wait...that's just his name when he is scamming the scammers. Joe at The Shadow of my Life is a newer blog for me. I found that I really like his writing style. He has a very natural way about his writing that just puts you at ease. Lately he has been giving a little back to some scammers that are trying to pull one over on him. You can find the latest installment here. Along with some great Dad and daughter stories and some really cool pics you will have a great time at this blog. So do yourself a favor and check him out.

I will have one more group for you guys tomorrow....Stay tuned :)

Thank you sooooo much for such kind words in your first "What's The Draw" post.

I just found this post, and was totally shocked! I'm humbled by your generosity... that you'd name me as someone who's inspired you.

The feeling's definitely mutual, my friend. I love your blog, and read it regularly!

Thanks for printing some of my posts for your office... sorry that you get teased. They're only needling you because they're jealous ;-)

Thanks again for the wonderful words.

It's nice that you and your son can enjoy blogs together.

Yes Sir,

Thank You.

Goooood choices!! I'm already following ABAO and I am NEVER ever able to guess those TV themes! One day...who knows, huh?:P

And I've got to admit that Joe's blog is simply awesome..there's something about it that makes me feel at home..weird, huh? The scammer story was hilarious and I still can't believe he went that far in it!

Thank you so much for your review and nice words. I am happy to have you follow my blog and if I am able to write something worthwhile that touches you then I am even more pleased. You have raised the bar for me and now I need to get busy and do some real writing since I have been lax in posting lately.
