Single Blog Stalking

It's not like I have a diet and exercise plan or anything to attend to, or a life off the computer, for that matter, but this weekend I am going to devote all my attention to one blog site and read every single post the author has written...from beginning to the end. On Monday, I will unveil which blog site I choose and share my favorite post from that site. I have not decided which blog to do yet, but come Saturday morning, I'll select someone.

I got this crazy idea from reading a post from The Stiletto Mom. She didn't feel much like writing a post that day so she pulled up an old post about an annoying neighbor and squirrels. It was cute, but it made me think, how did she choose that particular post? Is this one of her favorite posts?

I know even in the short 3 months that I have been writing posts on my 6 pages, I have some posts that I either think is well written or came across in a way that made me feel good afterwards. Of course, no one else might agree with my selections, but that's just the way the world turns!

There are so many great writers in this gigantic blog world, one can easily be humbled. I am so glad to have found many great ones and always wonder who I am missing.

This little experiment is kind of like reading one's biography. But stalking in this matter is not creepy, right? I just think jumping from one post one day, skipping a few days and then returning a week later makes you miss lots of good material. And maybe they have more than one channel or page, like my site, and you might not hit them on a "good day".

Kind of like curling up with a good book.....internet style!

Wide awake at 2:45 am? And I thought I wa all alone.

Beth,
That sounds like a great idea. Something that would be fun... Maybe I will try it too! Thanks for the great idea.

I think that's a great idea. I've read the back issues of some of my favorite blogs to catch up on everything I missed. It's like getting a new magazine to read, so much to read and you get a huge dose all at once.
