Feeding the Blogging Addiction

Dear Bloggity Blog Friends,
I am searching for new blogs to read. Lots of them. You see, I love the challenge my Google Reader presents to me everyday. Every morning I wake up to find about 60 new blog posts to read. Throughout the day that number grows and grows up to about 100 while I try to knock off a handful every couple of hours. So, its like a race. I try to keep my head above water and my Google Reader tries to stress me out by feeding me as many blog updates in one day as it possibly can. We have a love hate relationship.

Like I said before, I am searching for new blogs to read so that I can continue this fun little game that I play with my Google Reader everyday. So, send me your blog, the blog your bff from 7th grade writes, your dog's blog....whatever. Special requests are as follows: fabulous wedding blogs by brides-to-be, nesting blogs {severely in need of tips and tricks for decorating our new home} and blogs that make me giggle by posting about the randomness that is life. Allow me to give you references for said special requests:
<> Fabulous wedding blog by a bride-to-be: the artsy bride, grey likes weddings & veiled vows
<> Nesting/home decor blog: decor8, coco kelley & this young house
<> A blog that makes me giggle: just shoe me, daily pep talk from a best friend & blogging barbie

My Google Reader and I thank you for your assistance in feeding our addiction to the reading of lovely blogs. Send them our way!
The pretty picture {above} to accompany this post was found on the delightful blog of Southern Weddings.

i, too, am a slave to google reader. my favorite hilarious non-wedding sites are:

they all make my laugh out loud at work (imeanonmyowntime) and are full of nesting and crafting inspiration.

my blog isn't as awesome or regularly updated as yours or theirs, but i aspire...

N. said...

I'm sure you've thought of this, but I always look at the blogs that my fave bloggers list as their daily reads; you know, the ones they list on the side of their blog. I've found some awesome blogs that way.
If they like 'em, I probably will, too!

For nesting/design: desire to inspire, elements of style, decorno, and my FH's new blog: He does a lot of interesting posts about art, music, design, etc.

And for random funniness, I like,, and a little blog called F*** You Penguin (I'm sorry but it's hilarious, I can't help but laugh.)

You've been in my Google Reader for a little bit now and I truly enjoyed reading about your wedding. My blog is about it all, wedding, nesting, life in general, and is located at

Amanda B. Young said...

OMG, you are hilarious! Love the "love hate" relationship thing. I think I would have a much better time at keeping up with my Reader if I could look at it from 8-5. But, by the time I get home in the evening I'm up to several hundred and it's just not happening.

Anyway, glad that you liked my coco+kelley suggestion enough for it to make the list! Glad to help!

Katy said...

Google reader is worse than crack.

There are many times in like... oh i dunno... class when I should be doing better things and my finger just happens to click the google reader button. :-)

Complete accident every time... really.

I don't think my teachers will believe me come finals time.

love said...
