Wednesday... Hump Day... F Day.. YAY!

Get yer head outta the gutter! It's another round of the Nablo reader raid. Today is the F day!

68 F Bloggers

20% are mommy bloggin fools! The majority of the blog is devoted to the kiddos!
17% are personal blogs that have a decent history, a variety of interesting posts and discuss several interesting topics.
15% (at least) are out!
5% are about food... and one of them had these photos... um, some of them weren't the most appetizing...
3% of the blogs seemed to have a different theme, but recently they've turned POLITICAL!! EEP Make it stop!
8% were artsy fartsy - yarn, thread, sketches... you get the idea
10% were students
1% claimed a writing theme

Some singles I've got to point out!

* I think that one blog had to have several authors (but wasn't that clear) otherwise it was Sybil.

1 of the blogs had a lovely Harry Potter header! yay Harry Potter fans!

There was 1, ONE, blog that clearly identified the category as:

First on the list: The Fabricated Goddess! And we start the F's with a personal/mom/crafter blog. She mentions a Jehovah's witness in today's post... I wish I could get rid of them as easily as she seemed to be able to. Although, my husband has this great tactic, which seems to work quite well... he answers the door in his underwear.

Falling upward is one of the vox blogs... I've been shying away from those vox blogs because I have to sign up to be able to leave comments... but alas, I wanted to leave a comment and caved. Any fellow who buys a "nerdy" sweater and blogs about it has to be interesting, eh? And, while reading his post, I could envision someone receiving a shoebox "gift" of used hair gel.

A family blog that is REALLY family is the Family living Hatfield. I'll keep the Hatfield and McCoy jokes to myself, though, it's hard to do so... Anyway, pages on the kids, tons of posts, links... It definitely looks like a site this mom spends a lot of time on.

The Fashionable Commute has a lovely personal goal. Yes, the Cat Walker wants to be internet famous. Shall we make dreams come true? *poof* Look! You are now internet famous. I have said it is so and so shall it be... (isn't that how it works?) I'm sure you get a bumper sticker or something like that to prove your fame.

How can this not grab your eye?

Ficken Chingers. Course, I'm not sure about those Colts fans... they seem a little squirrely to me. Cheers to her on her blogibirthaverse day... Yes, I've coined a term.

Blogibirthaverse Day: the annual celebration to commemorate the birth or creation of your blog.

Fighting Alchemist Cats Exit (not quite sure where that title's going...) had a funny personal story about her sister's job, "Talking Dirty". She has some posts about what she claims to be "music" but I have this feeling that our opinion of music differs! :)

***** Important reader announcment: Do you know what I realized as I've been reading these hundreds of new blogs? Many more women announce the arrival of their period in a blog post than I expected. And among other blogworthy topics - laundry. Wow, I ignore laundry until I'm faced with the choice of buying socks so my kids' feet are covered... or washing a load. If I EVER make a blog entry about laundry, ironing, folding laundry, or anything like that... feel free to spam me with annoying emails telling me how boring I have become. Now returning to our regularly scheduled program. *******

I enjoyed visiting Finding My Voice. First, she's got a button for Fibromyalgia Awareness... since my mother has fibro, I fully support that awareness effort. Second, I allowed myself to get distracted by the blog color quiz!

You Are Rouge Red

Of all the reds, you are the most energetic and vibrant. You never need to recharge, and in fact, you often recharge others. Gutsy and brave, you've never let your fears stop you from doing anything. You figure that life is all about experiences, and you'll always take that leap of faith.

Fist City's post on "Nice Day for a Red Wedding" was a fun read! Five by Five does have a lovely layout and how can I not mention someone who set me up to find a targeted post! Although, I'd like to see the title on that header so my poor memory doesn't have to work so hard to remember where I am.

Flippy's "I rant; therefore; I am" - I guess I am a lot! I certainly do enough ranting! She's been posting a while... and I did enjoy her idiot of the day piece!

Fleur de Lisa is another poster with a solid posting history. She's got some fun posts and lots of great images!

Fly Around My Pretty Little Mess doesn't allow comments! *gasp* However will I leave inspiring words of wisdom????

The post, "I'll know God reads my blog if this happens" on Formation of Me was too funny... the visual of comparing Cameron Diaz with E.T. in a blond wig.... haha

Ok... this blog: Fruit Loops & Porn. It made me laugh when I saw the header and I laughed several times reading through those posts she's got. I'm definitely going to be adding her to my favorites and I will be going back to randomly jack up her sitemeter count.

This is amazing! I never thought of going through ALL the blogs and thanks to you, I don't have to! What a wonderful service you are giving to us surf-weary bloggers! In my heart, I'd like to sign up to help review, but my poor baby already is giving me the evil eye with all the time I've spent on my blog this month.

Thanks for visiting my site - this whole NaBloPoMo thing is so fun! I'm going to miss everyone in December.

I can't believe how many people who signed up have already fallen out of the running. By the time this is over there is only going to be a few hundred of us left (hopefully I'm one of them (I'm gambling that my toddler is too young to be permanently scarred by the neglect...)

Keep up the good work!

Thanks for stopping by. I love your stats. What a great thing Fussy has started, with so many participants doing so many different things - prizes, reviews, etc. The reviews have been great!

I'm loving your rundowns! I too have seen FAR too many mentions about periods on blogs. Honestly there's sharing and then there is just too much information sometimes. If that is the highlight of their day well something needs to be done!

I don't know what I initially did wrong and I have no idea what I subsequently did right, but my beastly computer has taken pity on me this morning: I can now connect to Blogger for the first time in a few days! Let us pause for the happy dance.

I am (much more so than I was already) out of the NaBloPoMo running, but at least now I can pop over to your blog to thank you for your comment on mine. Are you actually commenting on all 2k Fussy-inspired sites? GOOD LORD! But thanks nonetheless... this has been great fun to follow!

Can't wait to read more!
