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