E for me, and E for you... it's E for Everyone!

Well, I started going through the E's much earlier today... before work in fact... Unfortunately, my day went down hill and I was focused on several work projects (in addition to remote training a new employee - always fun). Now then, you don't really want to hear about my job, so let's get down to the fun stuff.

There were about 60 E blogs, sometimes it's hard to catch each one, so I'm giving myself a +/- 1. Random percentages from the E sector:

18% are out of the running (it's getting more difficult to notice those that miss a day's posting... I feel for whoever is going to officially verify daily post entries!)
10% seem to be about knitting or crochet or some other yarn type of past time.
8% are mom blogs (huge drop from previous categories)
8% are in the student/teacher group (again, that's probably short, it's hard to tell who students are sometimes)
8% I have absolutely no idea what their blog is about... I'm thinking nablo has led them to completely random posts... some just pictures, some just links... some just idle personal observations
5% seemed to really have a writing focus
5% seemed to have a food focus
1% seemed Technogeek (and that's said with love, my hubby is a technogeek!)
2.5% seemed to focus in some way on religion

I can't even tell you how many posts there were about voting and politics today... wow... I know what everyone was thinking about today!

A few had errors loading and a few required me to create some new account or kept me from making comments. I tried to leave comments on most of the blogs that I visited, just so folks would know I was there.

The lucky first name on the E list is E.B.'s world and it seems to be a nice personal blog. Earthbound is another of the personal blogs on the list, it has a nice livejournal layout. Neat. Clean. Nice short posts. A pleasant stop on my blogging journey of the day.

I enjoyed the posts at eat bugs (catchy title) and will probably visit again so that I can read more! The blog is from a student (student-teacher?) approaching graduation and the "real world".

"If at first you don't succeed... ... maybe failure is your style." That's the tag line at Eccentrice Thousandaire. Another personal site, though she has some interesting posts regarding health issues (like SIDS and depression)

I really enjoyed visiting the Eerie Apricot, a nanowrimo participant, Eerie has some enjoyable and thought provoking posts.

E.J. Takes Life has some good posts and I really enjoyed the post, "but at least i never gave whiskey to any children" where she shares her Halloween candy tale. Plus, my initials were E.J. for the first 19 years of my life... so it catches my eye!

Oh, I experienced a flashback when I visited Elfstar. I totally had a "lightning bolt! lightning bolt! lightning bolt!" moment. She was blogging on her DnD gaming experiences... man, that just takes me back. College... beer... no kids... beer... no kids...

Elvispug has a neat idea for posting what she's thankful for each day... That's GOT to be good for karma.

I see blogs about death! Well... it's actually mortuary science... but it doesn't sound quite so interesting when you add "science" to it. I actually didn't even know there was "mortuary science"... Embalmed to the Max has some interesting stuff. It was a nice surprise to come across a post that wasn't about someone's child (not that I don't enjoy them), not about someone's wild night at the bar (not that they aren't entertaining), or someone's philosophy of life (not that it's not interesting) - but multiply those by 500 and you start to get a little bleary-eyed.

Everlasting Truth is a nice personal blog. His post from the 6th caught my eye because he (or she, I guess I should be gender friendly) drew a diagram and added it to the blog entry... I loved that little bit extra of "show and tell".

I'm an "F," and admittedly nervous about your visit! This NaBloPoMo thing is a killer! I do have fun with fannfare.com though -- especially the "lyrical challenge" I made myself a few months back. Every title of my entries has to be a lyric from a song, with the artist and title quoted at the bottom. It's brutal, but makes NaBloPoMo even more challenging. Thanks for all the recommends -- no wonder I never have time to read a book -- I can't get off THE BLOGS.

I'm enjoying your stroll through the NaBloPoMo participants. It seems like such a huge task. Did you find anyone to help yet?

Thank you Mary-Lue... it is absolutely addicting to stroll through the participants. I'm amazed at all the things people share about their lives and their thoughts. Fascinating really... a big spin on "people watching".

I'm getting some volunteers to help me with some of the categories while I'm on vacation. It's awesome!

Well, it sounds like the E's are a great bunch; I'm going to have to check these out.

Great job on going through all the participants. I'm lucky to check out 5-10 new blogs a day through this thing, but at least I've got a better option than just a click on "Next Blog"; at least with these NaBloPoMo blogs, I should have a few recent posts to check out;>
