Dawns Blogaholic Weekly Reader..

Howdee all,blogaholic

So, as some of you know..I am a Blogaholic… I love writing blogs but ..I really love to read blogs..anything Bird/Nature.

I have been behind on my blog reading because my blogroll is longer than long. I am hoping that by having this as a weekly feature..I will be killing two birds with one stone…Ooops..that sure is a bad saying for a birder…

Anyway..what I mean is ,I can read all the blogs I love and also create a blog post to highlight some of the posts that I am reading… and maybe in turn….turn you on to some great blogs that I follow.

I don't know if this will become a weekly feature..but I would like to to be.

So here you go.. the first installment of..

  1. Dawn...I love your Blogaholic Weekly Reader! You should definitely make it a weekly thing (I know it's a lot of work, but it's worth it). I found some wonderful new blogs to read! (Thank you for posting that cranky, hungry little fellow! I still go back to that photo and laugh too, and my friend has adopted it as his Facebook photo.)

  2. Nice list. Of course you know I did not go to all of them. Maybe not any of them ha. But if I wanted to I would or had time. I dont' even have time for my own blog. bloggedy blog blog

  3. Great idea and post, Dawn. And thanks for the mention! "Longer than long" is the right expression for the # of great blogs I'm finding. It is hard to divide time between the great people you meet in the nature network and creating your own blog. I was just thinking how nice it is that you can take this nature community with you anywhere you go!

  4. neat idea Dawn, and I may use your blog to help me keep up too, just not enough time in the day and lots of great stuff out there.


  5. What a great idea Dawn... I always like heading to new blogs and checking them out and what better way then with the recommendation of a fellow blogger... Thanks


  6. Thanks for the heads up for all those great blogs!
    Will get busy reading now :D

    (And add myself to the mentioned networks!)

    Have a great week!

  7. Cool idea Dawn. I will try to come back and read them all later. Gotta get to work now. Thanks for the list!

  8. A great idea--appreciate the references to blogs I don't know. Thanks.

  9. Wonderful way to highlight some wonderful blogs.
    Great idea. In the summer i have a hard time getting around to everyone. I seem to blog read when it is raining or too hot to dig in the dirt.
    Hope to visit these links soon.

  10. What a clever idea! I love it.

  11. Good idea Dawn. This is essentially. Dawn Fine's Blog Carnival. The difference from I and the bird, is that these blogs are actually recommended by the host. We know that there is a qualifed selection here.

    But as many already posted, will we/I take the time to read your suggestions. Hopefully eventually.....

    I noticed when hosting I and the Bird recently that it became much more interesting illustrating with a picture from the participating blog. This would be my tip to you.
    Promise, I will take a look at the posts one by one. Maybe some of your recommendations want to join the birdbloggers tweet club. Deadline tonight.

    glad you liked the weekly reader...will see how it goes..maybe I will have a few less links..dont want to overwhelm.
    That photo of yours is a winner!

    yeah Sicksta..LOL I dont have time either...I just dont sleep anymore!

    Yeah..longer than long..sometimes its overwhelming. I will do a few blogger vacations..if My blogaholic self can handle it.! Yeah the best part about this community is that it moves with me!

    Yeah need more hours in the day..maybe we should make a 48 hour day..tee hee

    Hope u got a few good blogs to add to your long blogroll :)

    Thanks Nicole..thanks for checking out the other networks too!

    Larry Jordan
    Thanks Larry...

    Appalachian Lady
    Hope u find a few more blogs that u like here.

    I hear ya...summer is busy! its almost time for my blogger vacation!

    Thanks! hope u find some new blogs here.

    I know what u mean ...this is a trial to see who actually clicks on other links..I see a few..but like you said..not everyone will do it.
    So..I think I will take your advice and add pictures. Did you link to the owners source or download your own?
    Will do your tweet club in the future..just too busy..

  13. Oh Dawn, I'm so late, but special thanks for including me in your first weekly reader list! I feel very honored to be included with this fine group.


ok what do you really think?????
