What Grabs Your Attention??

There are more than 30 blogs listed in my bookmarks. My situation was: I never got to them all and I had not subscribed to them and so I was not alerted when they posted new topics. It looked and felt unorganized and messy, too much. So I had to ask myself what do I really enjoy in them and do I want to continue to have them listed in my bookmarks?

As I was doing my walk/jog plan I thought about what grabs my attention? It felt good to realize there were actually subjects I am drawn to. Of course a lot of the blogs belong to families we want to keep up with and I'm not really talking about those. I had blogs of people I don't really know on my bookmark list. I had gone there one day and enjoyed an article and bookmarked it. So this the is the list of my favorite subjects:

New Recipes
Financial Tips
Book Reviews
Spiritual Insights/Formation

Here are some sites I enjoy for recipes and a recipe I tried today.
