Out of the Box

This year is about trying new things. LOL! Isn't every year come to think of it?

One of the things I'm doing is discovering some new blogs. For so long, I've had my old faithfuls saved in my blog aggregator. This is actually great when you're busy, however the downside of the upside is that it's so easy to get stuck-in-a-blog-rut, which is where I am now.

I've recently started looking for blogs that chronicle experiences that are as different from mine as possible (while still being an entertaining read, but of course).

So far, I've found Confessions of a Pioneer Woman about Ree, who used to live in L.A. but who is now married to a real-life cowboy (well, cattle rancher, aren't they the same thing?) and lives somewhere "in the middle of nowhere."

Then, there's Being Brazen, which I'm having problems subscribing to at the mo.

Dooce, which is not really a new discovery, but which I've been meaning to add to my blog aggregator and which I just did. So that's kind of new, because now i'll be reading it regularly.

I'm looking forward to reading Tokyo Girl Down Under, the tales of a British woman who has itchy feet (much like myself), who married a German, lived in Tokyo (which I really want to visit) and now lives in Australia.

Project Rungray, because I'm getting into fashion these days.

Then there's Bangladesh From Our View, featuring posts from young female bloggers in Bangladesh.

Well, that's enough for now. I've got to wake-up early tomorrow (today) for my Pilates class.

Like a child exploring something new; I've just discovered a lot about the world of blogging!
Good side - you learn so much..
Odd side - deprives you of sleep!

so much new blogs are now in my aggregator. It's always exciting to discover something new.

BTW, itchy feet? Never saw you scratching them.

Pilate class? What is this o?

I do notice you are into fashion now (lol). Seems we will see a lot from you this year

@ Standtall, yes, as I'm adding new blogs to my aggregator account, I'm also deleting some that no longer hold any appeal for me.

I would like to think that I've always been stylish, but yes, somethings are definitely changing this year.

Pilates is a form of exercise, which involves toning and strengthening your body - especially your core (the middle part of your body).
