Those Dexterous Dees

Here we are on another day of the NaBloPoMo and I'm once again clicking through that LOOONG list of the participants. We are now looking at the D's.

Note 1: I'm going to be on vacation for part of November. I'll be able to mobile post and post saved items... but I don't know that I'll be able to hit every category on the list. I'm thinking about finding a couple of like-minded bloggers who would like to hit a couple of the categories for me while I'm on vacation. Edit: Several bloggers have taken the torch! There is now a team of dedicated readers! One of us will be hitting your blog!


Note 2: I've been reading some great blogs. It's just impossible for me to include everyone's. If I made a post on your blog something about it caught my eye. If I mention you here, I think your blog is noteworthy. If I've not commented or mentioned you, it doesn't necessarily mean I didn't like your blog.

Right now there are 71 D blogs. Random results of things I noticed:

15%
of them are out of the competition, missing a post day.
38%
of them were mom (or dad) blogs.
15%
were personal ramblings that I couldn't really find an overall theme for.
17.5%
I really wasn't sure what the blog was supposed to be about, I guess these could also be considered personal.
5.5%
were medical/medicine/doctor
2.5%
were definitely student (I'm sure there were more, it just wasn't obvious)
1%
seemed to be mostly focused on religion.
1%
seemed to be focused on horses (and family)
6%
seemed to be focused on writing (and/or books)


The first D blog on the list is Dad Daily Blog: cute slide show header... uhoh! No posts since the 1st. Dadoughkids had a very entertaining post over a 911 call made by her child. Pluck the Petal has some nice photographs, and some fun photographs of her son's hair transformation.

There were a ton of parent blogs in this category... some delightful, some rather blah. Some of the posts from today's list were slow loaders... and a couple had some layouts that were difficult to read or weren't very aesthetic.


The Dana Files, however, is a nice looking blog with interesting and well written posts.



Entertaining titles and posts abound at Dante's Inferno with Children. I found The Days are just Packed a nice site with some interesting posts and some nice pictures on today's post. It's a simple template layout, but it's still nice. I've never really given much thought to hot water bottles... but Derivative of Witty has a post on hot water bottles and apparently they come in many different shapes and sizes. I wonder if some people are grasping for blog topics or if the posts I'm seeing represent their regular posting habits... I guess we'll just have to keep on reading to find out.

Destinations Journey of a Restless Mind has some nice looking images.

Devilish Southern Belle is definitely a nice place to visit... great design, loved the header, and interesting posts. I found a distracting link on Dharma's Universe. I just had to stop and find out which wife I would have been:




Which of Henry VIII's wives are you?

I have to add that I just don't find Myspace blogs as nice as other blog tools.


For a killer (yes, it might send you into diabetic shock) cake recipe, scroll down on Diary of a Crazed Mommy's blog. Hehe, I really enjoyed visiting A Dingo Ate My Baby. Displaced was an interesting stop and so was, Distracted by Shiny Objects. Doah Leigh caught my eye with her post titled, "My Magic Underwear". Hahah

Oh look! Here's an absolute write member,
Drive by Booking. She's got some great nano/blo movement! Keep going and good luck!

Great blog! I'm Catarina, according to the test. However, I would not die alone in exile. I would rally the troops, swim to England, and whoop his sorry butkis!

Oh my gosh! Thank you so much for the eProps! That was so kind and sweet of you! NaBloPoMo is a lot of fun, but a lot of work, too! I'm hoping not to forget to post, myself!!

Hi, thanks for stopping by!

I'm really glad I'm doing this. It's gotten me writing again.

Ha!

My hot water bottle post, while close to my heart, hopefully will not be indicative of the flavor of most of the posts...the campaign is sucking on my brain cells, and I hope to more prolific and imaginative come Wednesday..

thanks for the recaps, though! They're great!

Darn it, not even my panty post gets me a mention in your "D" analysis. Oh well, I'm glad you stopped by anyway!

I'm loving your analyses too, keep it up.

How did I miss that? Twice! I read through it once, then glanced back through just be sure there was no doahleigh mention. Wow, must be blind.

Thanks though, I appreciate it! I'll be dropping by often.

Hey, Thanks. It's nice to be noticed. There are so many great blogs out there, your comments are giving us a great place to start our explorations. NaBloPoMo can be a little overwhelming as you know!

Things have been pretty dull and politically minded over here at the Daily Tannenbaum. I guess I'm part of your percentage of personal ramblings... This posting every day business has simply sucked the funny right out of me. Thanks for stopping by, though! If I knew you were coming I would have made tea.

Your blog on the D's inspired my post for today. =^)

Thank you Rashenbo for mentioning my little NaNo journal. Got some traffic today from it - it's not very interesting really but I wanted something for posterity - and if I have a chance at cool prizes that's even better!

Your analysis of the NaBloPoMo blogs is fascinating and fun to read.

Let's hear it for AW Bloggers :-)

I'm also digging the introspective analysis, and I'm looking forward to hearing (or not hearing, no pressure!) your opinions on my blog (I think I'm in the G section).

NaBloPoMo has really inspired me to post with a bit more frequency than I had been for a while

Hm, I cannot tell if your mention counts as a plug or a dis, but hey, you linked me and I am of generous heart so, thanks for stopping by.

Ds are now up to a 27% failure rate, and that was with giving people who were only a single day behind the benefit of doubt that they were in a weird time zone or just forgot to hit publish.

I personally find this to be pretty damn lame.

[b]Description[/b]

Generic Viagra (sildenafil citrate; brand names include: Aphrodil / Edegra / Erasmo / Penegra / Revatio / Supra / Zwagra) is an effective treatment for erectile dysfunction regardless of the cause or duration of the problem or the age of the patient.
Sildenafil Citrate is the active ingredient used to treat erectile dysfunction (impotence) in men. It can help men who have erectile dysfunction get and sustain an erection when they are sexually excited.
Generic Viagra is manufactured in accordance with World Health Organization standards and guidelines (WHO-GMP). Also you can find on our sites.
Generic Viagra is made with thorough reverse engineering for the sildenafil citrate molecule - a totally different process of making sildenafil and its reaction. That is why it takes effect in 15 minutes compared to other drugs which take 30-40 minutes to take effect.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
