Do you ever do this? Start with reading one of the blogs on your own blogroll, and then meander through a whole lot of new blogs by clicking on other bloggers blogrolls?
That's what I've been doing this afternoon... it's a relaxing stroll around the world.
Let's see... I start with Wandering Woman who blogs about missing the things we must leave behind, a very heartfelt post. She has a long list of links, but I spot one with the interesting name of Otago Boy who risks his reputation by declaring that Tom Cruise really can act, and advises us to watch Magnolia. Now Otago Boy has only a few dubious sounding links but I choose one- Hatesexy and find him defending his last post about organised religion. Interesting. I decide to visit the last link on hatesexy's links which is the viking's progress. Poor viking is suffering from some disturbing dreams lately. Again. a short list of links in his blogroll, but Velcrometer sounds intriguing. Here's a guy who has written a play called The Sisters Tragedy, and has won some comedy writing awards. He has a huge archive but a rather short blogroll. I like his post about a wedding he witnessed on a plane to Vegas. I click on his link to annatopia which scares me at first because it just looks so political and I tend to stay away from extremes, but wait a second-- it's a very cool site, with some great posts, including the lyrics of a song by Pink, taunting Mr. Bush to work hard. Now annatopia has a link to her HUGE blogroll (thank you anna!) and I have lots to choose from here. I like the sound of happier man. I'm not sure he's really happ, but his latest post gives advice to the "ding dongs" and "knuckleheads" who have been protesting Bush's policy on illegal immigrants. I decide to take one more jump over to soup du jour of the day where I learn about a new type of Coka Cola called Coke Black, with what-- coffee??? in it. Sounds bizarre but reminds me of the Coke with Lime that I fell in love with in Canada- I wish it was available here- wahhhh!
So those were todays "Stepping Stones" around the world.
Where did you go today?
