Tribute To My Fellow Bloggers
(I wanted to have a picture of a group of friends. Then I thought I would post a picture of a group of friends from one of my favorite shows. So it was a toss up between "Seinfeld" and "That 70's Show" and as you can see "That 70's Show" won.)
I felt bad about my recent post where I was only able to list 5 blogs that I visit daily. I try to visit most of the blogs on my blogroll daily or on a fairly consistent basis. That is getting harder and harder as my blogroll grows :-). But I'm very picky about who I put on there so it's a great group of people. All that to say I wanted to highlight the wonderful people on my blogroll. I've never introduced people as I've added them so I figured dedicating a post was a good idea.
So here it goes.
Rebecca of Revka's Take and I embarked on this blogging venture together. Rebecca was one of my only friends that was as obsessed about politics as I was. We knew we were driving our other friends crazy being on our soapboxes all the time so the blog thing sounded like a good idea :-). We used to go to the same church and we both have special needs kids. We also both got to go see Sean Hannity together when he came to Kansas City.
Bloviating Zeppelin was one of the early bloggers that I met. He was very gracious and added me to his blogroll early and gave me technical help which I desperately needed :-). I really enjoy his blog and agree with him on a lot of issues. And many times I am amazed at how eloquently he is able to explain certain positions that I agree with but didn't know how to express.
Juanita, Lone Pony and Suzie are all great chics (I would say ladies but thats just too old ladyish for me)and kindred spirits. We all seem to be on the same page a lot of the time but yet we all have our own unique qualities. Juanita does some great posts on her relationship with God. Suzie is a fellow Fox News addict for which we would seek help from a 12 step program if it was a bad addiction :-). Lone Pony has a great sense of humor and we are both from Kansas City so that has been awesome.
Grey Ghost is a conservative democrat. I agree with him a lot so I'm wondering how long he's going to hold on to his label as a democrat :-). He does great posts on great topics.
Patrick and I were just talking about how different we are. He and I come from very different walks of life but I am constantly amazed at how we agree on core conservative principles. He is a kind and generous guy from South Africa so I like the unique perspective he brings to things. I have grown as a person from visiting his blog.
I think I ran across Gayle and Texas Fred at right about the same time. They are both great Texans :-). Texas Fred has a refreshingly non- politically correct site. He says it like it is. Gayle and I are from different generations but have a lot of the same views including liking Mel Gibson :-).
ABFreedom is a great Canadian site. I have enjoyed his site and have learned a lot about Canadian politics as a result.
Not only am I addicted to "24" but I am also addicted to the best blog about "24", blogs4bauer. It is a very fun site to be able to talk about what you think about 24, Kiefer Sutherland and the rest of the cast. Two of the contributors are The Conservative UAW Guy and Wyatt Earp. They both have a great sense of humor and very enjoyable blogs.
Crazy Politico is crazy but in a good way :-). He has a great sense of humor and offers unique and in-depth insight about the political world.
Big White Hat is a wonderful, Christian guy who also has a special needs son and does great personal posts about life.
Mahndisa is an intellectual who is conservative in some areas and liberal in others. I appreciate her insight on many different issues. I am indebted to her because she really helped me get my blog off the ground in the very beginning. I really appreciated her help and kindness.
Rebekah is a teenager who is homeschooled. She is light years ahead of where I was at her age so I have been very impressed with her knowledge and insight. And she is the only other person on my blogroll who has a pink template :-).
James has the distinguished honor of being the only liberal on my blogroll. I wasn't sure I would ever have a lib on there but we have had some great discussions. James has not been mean-spirited and he's a great comedian so I have really enjoyed some of his posts.
Sandy doesn't post everyday but when he does, it is good. And he especially makes great comments.
Shoprat from Michigan offers a great perspective on Christianity and politics. And Robosquirrel is a Libertarian Naval Officer who does some great and insightful posts.
Exile, Dan, Either Orr, Free Agency, Ranting Republican and God Bless America also have great blogs totally worth checking out.
Mike, Mark, Neo and Wordsmith are new to the blogroll but they have awesome blogs. I am looking forward to reading them more often.
