One of the many reasons I consider myself a HUGE NERD

Some people get really excited over the Grammys, some over the Oscars. I, however, am a little different. It is no secret that I have an overwhelming obsession with blogs. So, I am on pins and needles about the Bloggies. When the nominees for the Seventh Annual Weblog awards came out, I was thrilled to see a few of my favorite bloggers were among the finalist. The winners will be announced on Monday and I CAN'T WAIT. (I know, I know, I really need to get a life.)

If you get the chance, check out these pages…you will not be disappointed.

Dooce – http://www.dooce.com/ Possibly the best known blogger of all time. Dooce might be the first person in recorded history to get fired from her job because she blogged about it. She has an offbeat, extremely screwed-up sense of humor that always makes me laugh…about stuff that I shouldn't laugh about. If you do not read Dooce, the internet police should totally come to your house and take your computer away from you.

Postsecrets – http://postsecret.blogspot.com/ This weblog actually uses the U.S. Postal Service…which I think is very cool. Anyone that would like to contribute, anonymously writes down their secret on a postcard and mails it to the webhost. Some secrets are sweet or funny, some are heartbreaking and some are down-right scary. But it makes you feel good to know that you are not the only freak out there.

Overheard in New York – http://www.overheardinnewyork.com/ These are actual quotes that people have heard on the streets of New York. And I thought that I heard people say stupid stuff in Tennessee. If they don't make you laugh nothing will. Check out their sister-sites while you are there....Overheard on the Beach and Overheard in the Office.

Pink is the New Blog – http://www.pinkisthenewblog.com/ I normally don't read about celebrities, but every once in a while, I sneak over to Pink to get a fix. The bubble comments that they put over pictures totally make the weblog.

Smitten Kitchen – http://www.smittenkitchen.com/ Although I totally could not make any meal remotely close to what she does, I still love to read her recipes. Her photography could make roasted dog poop look appetizing. I started reading this website years ago, when it was http://www.thesmitten.com/. I find myself going back to her old posts all the time. I am sure that I will blog about my favorite post of hers in the near future.

I read several other blogs that didn't get nominated, so I will tell you about those in the future. In the mean time, click over to the Weblog Awards website and check out all the cool blogs that are out there! http://2007.bloggies.com/ It is really amazing that there are so many people out there with something to say!
