I am a blog whore...

Yep there it is... out in the open...

I like reading blogs, and lots of them, my little heart goes all a flutter when I turn on the puter and bloglines is beeping at me!!!

I have so many favourite blogs in bloglines, over 200 actually.. so I am outing myself, "My name is Lissa, and I am a blog whore!!!"

Why do I love blogs? hmmm well I have made so many blog buddies, I like cruising and checking out what everyone is up to.. I wouldn't of found out about the Civil War Diary/Love Letters books..

or about free patterns...

or winning stuffs (I like getting surprises in the mail that dont later show up on my credit card bill)..

I also like sharing my stash, I have swapped bits of my stash and magazines with people who were desperate for both, so I'll love getting squishies in the mail when they arrive!

I liked doing the pay it forward (I might do it again later this year)...



and if I wasn't a blog whore, I wouldn't know about Homestead Hearth. I bought some fabric from them the other day, this was their scrap bag of civil war repros.. they say there is about 5 yards of fabric in the bag, and I counted 17 pieces and for $22.50 US.. how cool is that?? the other thing, is all but one of those fabrics is new to me, and I have not seen them in australia! I'll be sure to be shopping back there! fast shipping too, order posted 3/3 received 13/3 bloody cool I reckon!


I'd love to know what your favourite blogs are, and I'll be sure to check them out! I also like leaving comments, and I hope peoples dont think I am stalking them! LOL but I do try to leave comments on at least 10 blogs I visit each day!

so if you have seen a blog I must check out, leave me the link in comments! I'd like to check it out and I'll be sure to tell them you sent me there!

You're not alone with the huge list of frequently visited blogs! I've been bad about leaving comments lately, but hope to be better when summer comes!

Hee, hee - I know just what you mean. I'm trying to whittle down my bloglines list because right now I can't possibly keep up with it - I have 316 feeds and I'm over 5000 posts behind! Have to draw the line somewhere or I'll never sew another stitch LOL!

Love the post. I feel like a stalker sometimes too. Especially when I have left several comments on a blog and never hear from the owner. You have a great blog!

I love visiting blogs too - a chance to get a daily glimpse of what other quilters are up to and get inspired (and distracted!!).
HomesteadHearth looks great, love the fabrics you got - thanks for the link :)

Just peeking at your blog (could I be a whore too?), and I have to say I love the title of this post "I am a blog whore". I had to stop and look...too funny!
