I'm Crazy, with a Capital C!

And, I'm not Gnarls Barkley. No, it's another attack of the Nablo list. I'm calling it an attack because I have just spent hours going through the C blogs on the list. Psshhhh, hours.. you say. Seriously, 110 blogs on the C list (right now, my time, not yours). The stats on these 110:

6% are mostly food oriented.
7.5% start with the word Crazy.
10% are already out of the race (missed a post from the 1st, 2nd or 3rd.)
23% are "maybe in/out" - they've not posted yet today (at the time I hit their blog today).
30% are mom blogs (well, like 2% of that is actually dad blog, but this is my blog and I can lump you together if I want. I counted a blog that had significant posts or pictures on their children. If there were very few references I didn't really count them.)

First on the C list is Cafe Kim - it's a cute site with a nice layout and cutesie cartoon logo. Then I stumbled across a naughty one definitely has some rant related posts but should probably come with an M for mature and a C for controversial.

I liked the header at Canned Tan Chick and I liked the post that showed a cute t-shirt, but no post yesterday! Carissa's blog has some funny "life" stories and certainly has some lengthy posts!
Lol! A letter to red bull energy drink was humorous over at Carolynne Bites. Caylynn's Contemplations has some interesting posts, a nice header and she's balanced the use of images and pictures to make an overall interesting blog.

Cherry extract had a neat post on blue men. And, I have to admit that when I saw her name really was Cherry I could only think of that movie where most wives were robots and real women were more rare... and the title was... Cherry 2000, I think... Is that it, help me out movie buffs.

I thought Chirky had a great layout. Nice, clean and fun to visit.

Ok, I really like the coffee cup on Chookooloonks journal today. I want one! And, what an interesting handle, course, I do have to note that there have been some really interesting handles or blog names and I apologize for all of you I'm skipping over. I promise, I did visit your site! I just don't want a 10 foot long post.

Citizen of the month is a happening place to be! An active blog with lots of interesting posts and comment threads.

Coffee Crochet was a great stopping spot! I loved the Hasselhoff entry! Hahah...

Lol! "Plowing through life in the country... one calf nut at a time." Go Pioneer Woman - love the tagline.

Crazy mom cat has a great blog!

Creative Quilt has a great picture on her header!

It was fun... but I think I may be ALL blogged out for the day guys and gals.

Hey, thanks for the linkage and the comment today! And, you have a great idea going through each letter like that. I may have to copy you! Oh, and I now want to change my blog name to something that is NOT "crazy" (even though I love that Gnarls' song!)

Have a great evening!

Ohh.. this is a great idea. I had every intention to visit and comment at least one site on the list each day, but with work these days I'm lucky to get in my post. You're going way above that by visiting each and every site.

Thank you for the link and comment! I'm more inspired to work on an original template and masthead now. You've pointed out some really nice ones.

Thanks for visiting my site. I'm impress that you made it through all the C blogs. The photo on my blog is part of a theme that I recently setup. I really need to add a quilting related themes since that is my thing.

Greetings from California! I’m trying to view as many of the sites participating in NaBloPoMo as I can as well. I’m only commenting on the ones I like, and I had to stop and say hi.

I was going alphabetically, but now I'm using the randomizer. I have no idea how many I've visited now, but a lot.

And there are entirely too many mommy blogs out there. "Baby X spit up on my favorite blouse today." *yawn*

What's also odd to me is the number of blogs devoted to knitting. Really? Knitting?

I'm surprised you're not finding more writers and/or book blogs, Rash. I'd expect a lot of the writers are NaNoing, but the readers? That'd be great stuff to stock up on and post a new book each day.

I can't believe you read ALL the c's! That's fantastic!

Wow - I think it's fun that you visited AND reviewed my site. (I only found out you were doing these reviews through my statcounter - good thing I'm OCD.)

And that you think I have a great layout? BONUS. Because I am the designer.

I didn't realize anyone was doing category reviews - I think it's a great idea. How can we help?

Thanks for mentioning my blog. :) I'm honoured! :)

I'm also enjoying NaBloPoMo so far. :)
