Blog Olympics 2007

 Have you seen the carnival MamaBlogga is hosting?  No?  Well, go look here.  I’ll wait. 

… la, la, do, de, do …

See doesn’t that look fun.   What a great way to discover new blogs and develop community.  I’ll be keeping track of my progress here so you may see this post pop up more than once in your feed reader depending on how ambitious I get. :)

Conscious, and Occasionally Organized, Ramblings (a delightful mix of serious and funny, extremely well-written)

Polliwog Creek (because her beautiful patch of earth is what I dream of for my family)

Yea!! I have enough of these now to complete my “gold” event.

 

And I’ve commented on these new blogs:

The Burnett Clan in CO

Farmer’s Friends

Getting My Kicks

Yea!! I have more than enough of these now to complete my “bronze” event.

 

Carnivals I’m participating in:

Works-For-Me-Wednesday and the Photo Hunt

Yea!! These two complete my “silver” event.

 

Hooray! I’ve completed at least one event from each category!  So that means I get one of these! 

Still I’m having so much fun I’ll probably see if I can complete some more events.  You should too.  The deadline isn’t until the 24th.

  1. Wow, thank you for the compliment. I’ll be hosting a giveaway over at bloginmyeye this week, inspired by the Blog Olympics and Trista at The Pumpkin Patch’s End of Summer Blog Party. Come on over!

  2. Hey, thanks for the compliment as well, and the comment, and the subscription! I will see if I can at least earn a bronze, so I can repay some of this blog love!
