Your Turn.

Hello, world!

It only seems fair that since I deactivated my facebook and encouraged you to follow my blog, I ought to update it with a bit more passion or at least frequency as before. Buckle your seatbelts, friends!

But seriously, what do you look for in a blog? I follow a couple blogs about eating whole foods, a couple with sinfully wonderful recipes (and pretty pictures!), a couple that are funny and/or thoughtful and a handful of personal blogs belonging to friends who are either chronicling something specific or updating about their adorable kids or just naval gazing and I love them all!

Writing is one of my Top Five favorite things to do (making Top Five lists is another favorite, as you may know by now if you're not new!) and I don't do it nearly as much as I would like to, and I plan to use this blog as a feeble attempt to help correct that. Interpersonal exchange is another important and fun part of being human that I would like to nourish, so hopefully some dialogue will come of this as well. Well, maybe not this post in particular. This is the blog post where I talk about writing a blog post. Thanks for hanging in there thus far.

Every Friday I tell you my 5 favorite things of the week. How about, to kick off our new blog friendship (or rekindle one, or just keep one aflame), you tell me your Top Five favorite somethings...books, movies, parks, foods, children, whatever. You in? Great.

  1. Chelsea's Top Five Favorite Books (not in order):
    Weetzie Bat by Francesca Lia Block
    Anne of Green Gables by LM Montgomery
    Harry Potter (number 3 if I have to pick just one)
    Just Kids by Patti Smith
    The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie

    As for what I look for in blogs: people who write about what they are passionate about, whether that be food, books, clothes, animal rights, traveling, etc.
