WoooWee those W's are GUD!

The W's took me quite a good bit of time today actually. I kept getting distracted and with an entire month of posts... there are some great reads out there.

Approximately 40% of the W's are OUT. By now, most blogs have blended into a mixture of eclectic tastes and themes. A few remained focused on their theme - those were mostly the health oriented, craft oriented, and food blogs. I only found like 5 or 6 male bloggers of those blogs still in the competition. The females definitely out weigh the males in this letter. Must be the W for WOman! There were so many quality blogs and quality posts that it was difficult for me to limit... I'm afraid I just had to keep mentioning the blogs and posts that caught my eye. So here you go, the fun stuff from the W's.

Waiting for the other shoe to drop is a simple blog but very informative. Her son has a metabolic disorder and she includes many helpful links. It definitely has a health spin but I was interested in reading over the information and her experiences. My daughter has a connective tissue disorder, so I tend to find these things interesting. Walking To Do had one week of cat blogging. I'm not much of a cat person, but I bet some of you are! Her template's not too bad either.

Most livejournal blogs don't appeal to me. Wandering and Wondering was easy to scroll through... and yes, there is a calendar to glance at the posts. I really enjoyed all the pictures on this blog: oceans, beaches, flora and fauna...

I've read a lot of mom blogs but every now and then a post takes me back and I not only empathize with the blom but I remember so clearly what it was like when my children were young and sick. I enjoyed visiting Washi Waxing because I was just in the Lafayette area of Louisiana. She shares some great information about New Orleans, including a restaurant list... and some information on a trip to New York. And - she's a Heroes fan. I just love that show!

Watermark is one of those blogs that I just got lost on! I found myself reading several posts. She hit 50k words on the Nano on the 25th... Awesome! This is definitely a site I'm favoriting! Web log may be a little bit on the plain side for a blog but his post on ruling the world made me chuckle... I'd like to rule the world too... maybe :)

I have to give props to Caffinara at Welcome to Caffinara... she's got a great blog with some interesting personal tidbits and photographs... and she helped review some of the Nablopomo participants. Go... visit... I have spoken.

What if no one's watching really caught my eye as soon as I opened it up. Nice layout and today's post is very good. It's about women making history and the woman featured was born in 1976, the same as me. The blog just has a lot of interesting and thought provoking posts. What was I thinking is another nano winner... and did a "drawmo" each day... the little sketches are kind of a cute blog addition.

I really liked visiting What was I thinking (the other one, not the last one!)... it's got lots of links and gadgets. I love the header image and the tagline... and her posts are just great. I chuckled many times. this is definitely another one I'll have to visit frequently!

Whatever works has some Nablopomo reviews and some interesting posts! I totally dug the 20 Things You Didn't Know About Sesame Street on When Crazy Seems Normal. I liked the look and feel of When you wish upon a star, some nice posts and lots of little images to add some pretties to the posts.

Where's your sense of adventure is a tag team blog and it's got a great feel to it... and some good posts.. and their mini-shnauzer is so cute!

One of the few male bloggers of the W's... he's got spam comments... I've not received spam comments before. Does it make you special? (Edit to say... I'm joking about spam comments. In case it's not coming across.) Whoopdedoo was getting a little desperate I guess for content! :) Some very funny posts here. Hehe, you've got to check out the Toasted Gift Guide, on Wind in the Wire. I think Wonder Mom has a fantastic header and it's just a nice overall mom blog!

Work in progress has a great little blog going... and she's been under the weather. Hope you get better soon! Oh no.... Look what Write Coast linked... The Holidailies... can I resist it? Must my obsessive-compulsive tendencies win the war??? YES. I signed up. Feel free to smack me any day now.

Another good mom blog (or blom as I like to call them) is WWW new mom. I know I enjoyed visiting.

You guys that have kept up the posts are just awesome. So much entertainment... so little time. I'll be back!

spam comments are horrible, don't wish them upon yourself. I can't believe nablopomo will be over after tomorrow.Being so busy with my new house I suppose I didn't have any time to worry about what I was going to write about.

I dunno... I only got one spam comment, and it was at least on the same topic as the post they were commenting on. I felt loved for about half a second. :-)

Thanks for the summary of us W's.

Thanks for the mention! And for mentioning my blogirlfriend Suze's work in progress. I've really enjoyed NaBloPoMo, which is why I want to do Holidailies. See you there!

P.S. Great job on all the mini-reviews!!!

Thanks for the kind words and the visit. I do hope you come back again. I'm really impressed that you read all those blogs. REALLY impressed. I thought I read a lot of them, but you definately win the prize!

I was celebrating being home with the kittens I raise for two weeks and would have kept raising if college hadn't gotten in the way!

Thanks for the link and the compliment(?) on my template.

Oooooh how fast time is passing now that NaBloPoMo is over. I've been meaning to comment for a couple of weeks now and say thank you for stopping by the blog and for your kind words in the W roundup.

I've been enjoying your blog since Mrs. Kennedy gave you a shout-out. It's been quite nice to discover through your comments that we both share a public enthusiasm for "Heroes".

Hope your trip to Louisiana was a good one and that you make it over to New Orleans on one of your future visits.
