Some of My Favorite UBP11 Blogs

A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I was participating in the 2011 Ultimate Blog Party being hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom.  It was quite the little shindig.  I waded through over 500 blogs, and that was just in the Specialty Blogs category {the one for homeschoolers, crafters, cooks, etc.}.

One of the ladies I met at the party mentioned that she perused the blogs briefly and then made a list of the ones that she found interesting or relevant to her.  I thought it was a genius idea, so I copied her.  Nonetheless, I still had quite a few blogs to go through.

I found a few blogs that I really enjoyed and I want to share those with you.  Now, I know what you’re thinking; why am I giving you blog candy when you barely have enough time to read the ones you currently follow?  Trust me.  I wouldn’t steer you guys wrong.  These really are great blogs.

Of course, my favorites might not be your favorites, so feel free to head to the party link where all the blogs are still linked up.

  • 5 Minutes for Books – 5 Minutes for Books is a site devoted to books, reading, and everything literature.  Five staff reviewers post reviews on all sorts of books ranging from Kids’ Picks to Children’s Classics and pretty much every genre you could think of.  They also host giveaways each week.  The site is very well organized, making it easy to find exactly what you’re looking for.  While I always appreciate information on good children’s books, I especially like the recommendations the ladies make.  If you want to read, but don’t quite know what to read {*raises hand*} then this is the site for you.
  • Not Inadequate – Deb has a stellar mix of great info, quirkiness, and wit; you’ll be enthralled.  I felt like I was sitting in her living room having a conversation with her while reading through her blog.  She’s one of those people that says what everyone else is afraid to.  You know, those things that are just begging to be said.  I really liked Book of Stuff and 3 Words:  Maple.  Bacon.  Biscuit.
