Tell me your favorites.

I was just discussing my blog with Mark, and we decided that I am boring right now. I asked him what I should write about, and he looked around the kitchen and then suggested that I write about a blanket. So he is a bevvy of ideas, clearly.

It's all Olivia's fault, really. If you want to blame someone for the suckage of this blog, blame her. When she isn't having horrid reflux, or dangling from her crib, or shitting on someone's floor? Well, I really have nothing interesting to say.

If I can't write about shit, near-death experiences, or vomit, what can I write about, ya know?

Olivia is great right now. Adorable, fun, easy(ish), growing like a weed yet still looking like a 3 month old at almost 7 months. Work is good. Marriage is good. My ass is too fat for all of my pants, but I have a Bella Band so whatever.

(The good news: now that I've told you how good everything is, it is all bound to go to hell. So yay! Blog fodder!)

Ugh. If you haven't clicked away already, which you should have because this post is awful and boring...

Tell me - what are you reading these days? Blogs, I mean. I purged a lot of things from my Google Reader recently. And by a lot, I mean that I went from 304 subscriptions to 27.

My question is, what are YOUR favorite blogs?!?

Amy said...

I'm reading your blog!! LOL! I'm a boring blogger myself!

stb said...

I love your blog - you are hysterical :-)

Samantha said...

"Dooce" and "Heir to Blair" are my favorites. :)

Strawberry said...

I'm putting a vote in for our blog, 1invermillion.wordpress.com

We're a few months behind you with our baby...a 4 month old who resembles a 7 month old. Oh, and you know you need some lesbians on your blog roll.

Well, I'm not reading anything new and unknown but... All and Sundry and Amalah are probably my two current favorites... my all-time blog crush/favorite read was Miss Doxie, and she's not posting anymore. If you're looking for some pee-your-pants-with-laughter reading, I suggest you check out her archives, however. Or there's always my blog--wait. I suck at posting, and haven't yet reached the point where I'm willing to let my growing concerns about my fertility, lack of, become blog fodder. Coming soon, though, cause in the immortal words of Gwen Stefani: "this sh*t is bananas."

A picture of Olivia is all you need to keep your blog from being boring! (Does that make me a total suck up or what?)

Try passiveaggressivenotes.com (or not if it's one you deleted off your blogroll).

My current favorite

Might just be because I'm so happy for her though!!!

uncomplicateme said...

WHOA. I hope I made the cut. :) KIDDING. I agree, I want to know what you're reading.

I know that I've made the shift from IF blogs to mommy blogs, without making a conscious effort to do so. I also hopped on to some more mainstream blogs, like The Pioneer Woman. More fun stuff, less sad stuff I guess.

Mama Bee said...

I just asked my readers the same thing and that's how I found you! I have a post where I listed all the blogs my readers suggested (http://www.momtobee.com/take-a-bath)

Also, my blog doesn't suck ass most of the time.

Although, ironically, my ass is the topic of conversation on the blog a lot.

Heather said...

I read your blog too! The things we do as moms to get through the day is too funny! I loved your last post. I've had a hard time keeping up with all my reading on google reader too. When I go back to work next week, I'll need to kick people off my laptop at home at night so I can try to keep up.

I've really been enjoying wendiaarons.com. I also enjoy the daily cartoons at toothpastefordinner.com, though I guess that doesn't really qualify as a blog...

Wes and Dani said...

Craft blogs are the best. :) But that's just me in my desperate attempt to read anything online that doesn't have to do with conception, pregnancy, or miscarriage.

He's written a book from his blogging about being a waiter. Now he is researching the topic of tipping for his next book.

It's a good read, and you can go back in his archives as he doesn't post quite as often as he used to.

April said...

I only have a handful I read regularly (yours being one of them) but I enjoy:

Julia at Here be Hippogriffs http://julia.typepad.com/

I just started reading The Angry Office Manager and I love it.

The Daily Betty said...

I loved your post about feeding Olivia home made baby food. The pics and your captions were hilarious.

I'm kinda new to this Mommyblogging biz, and I suspect my blog is of interest only to my own family (they don't live near us and it's a way to keep them in the loop), but in any case, I'm always happy to know someone's reading it...

Ima newbie to your blog, I think I posted about relux issues, GERD, ug, it was wee-fest. Clearly Im being sarcastic. It SUCKD BAD.

You crack me up, and your bebe is adorable!

I have been reading a pretty cool blog, called pajamas and coffee.

Kara said...

I'm not nearly as good as you, new to the blog world but you can read mine if you're bored sometime (I know, enticing, huh?)

Blech. I NEVER have anything interesting to write about anymore. Or I do, but I forget what it was by the time I get home. Or I do, but it's really not enough to write a whole post. Like the middle aged (droopy in every way) woman I saw with gray-ish hair wearing a bikini top and short cut-off jeans riding a bike by the freeway. WTF? But do I really have several paragraphs to write about how magnificent that moment was- so much like a shiny flowing mullet that makes one wax rhapsodic about our tenuous grasp as a nation on our own fleeting existence and lack of fashion? No, I don't.

i still enjoy your blog and dont think its boring at all. i'm reading mostly about other women who are pregnant after a loss or consecutive losess like me. I'm also reading women like you, who are parents to newborns(ish) in efforts to prepare myself for what lies ahead.

I recently discovered www.textsfromlastnight.com - pretty funny stuff if you're up for the craziness of drunken others.

The Crazy Baby Mama said...

i actually really like this post :)

Erin said...

And go.

Nikki said...

I read your blog. And I write mine (very boring and uninteresting). Other than that, nothing. Unless you can count passivagressivenotes.com or failblog.org as "blogs" then I am all about those.
