I am, by all accounts, not a risk taker. I like my routines, but sometimes things can feel a little, well,...stale. So to break out of my rut I do something crazy like order something different off a menu or buy a different brand of fabric softener. I usually feel better but this week I am still feeling stuck.
SOOOO, last night I realized that although I love visiting the same old blogs day after day, that I would venture out and see what else was out there in this big old blog universe. After all, 7 regular blogs does not a solar system make, right?
To make it interesting I found the "next blog" tab at the top of the screen. Do you see it? Not knowing where it would take me I courageously pressed it and set off on my adventure.
Here is an account of my travels.....
#1 http://chr100.blogspot.com/Det er ganske lett å finne ut hvem snømannen er, selv brukte jeg 120 sider. Jeg får håpe Nesbø har gjort det så enkelt med vilje, for å fokusere på spenningen. Romanen er mer en spenningsroman enn en kriminalgåteroman.
Some sort of language that only the Swedish Chef from the Muppet show could understand.
#2 Some blog from Brazil that was again, in another language. So far I was traveling around the world but couldn't speak to the natives.
#3 A blog called "Welcome to my life... my last summer of freedom before starting med school. Hmmm, I thought. This could have potential. So Scott is going to med school in Maryland starting this fall, has a girlfriend named Heather and a dog named Taco and likes to take pictures at the zoo. Not bad but not as exciting as I had hoped.
#4 Biz opportunity exchange. How to make money from ads on your blogs, real estate and "The money that never quits". $14,800 in 14 days sounded pretty good but highly unlikely. So, I pressed onward.
#5 A gamer blog in Spanish. I'm assuming technical moves in some weird fairytale existence with dragons and elves. What the HELL? These people are wacko.
Just as I was getting disgusted with my lack of entertainment I hit the jackpot.
#6 http://4thavenueblues.blogspot.com/ A recovering alcoholic, schizophrenic writer who is in love with his best friend Rosa. Ahhhh, now this is what I'm talkin' about!
So if your feeling like your world could use a little expanding, go ahead and press the button. I promise it won't hurt. Go on, I dare you. Let me know how your trip was.
