blog buddies the "A" list..........

One of my blog buddies Thimbleanna in the USA only just discovered one of my long term blog buddies in Iceland Miss Bee............it's funny as we were emailing about a post where Thimbleanna met Miss Bee (in real life)............we all have our own blogs that we visit for various reasons............lots of us have blog lists on our sidebars some don't - it's a personal choice...........Thimbleanna only found Miss Bee online recently........you just think because you know of someone everyone else should know of them  too but that's not the case..........we all move blog in different circles..........
I have always had a list on my sidebar.......and last year I moved it to a tab at the top of my blog............I update it maybe twice a year..........some of the regular blogs I visit may not even be there cause I pick up blogs here and there and forget to add them so i'll apologise now if your not there and I visit you all the time..........it's not because I don't want you there is because I haven't remembered to add you to the sidebar..........
So what I am going to do is introduce you to my sidebar....it might take me awhile.......i'll just got thru my list so I don't miss any.........today you have the "a' blog names........

  1. Great idea Chooky! I don't do as much bloghopping these days so I am less likely to make new friends. Your posts will be a great way to visit places I have never been before.

  5. It is always fun to find new blogs through visiting a blogger's list. And like you, I do not always remember to add them to my list too. Thank you for helping me to meet new friends.

  6. Wow - your 'A' list - and I only visit 2 of them!! I think we are all a little guilty of visiting and forgetting to add to our side bars. Blogland is so big and varied!!

  7. Hi Chooky!

    Silly me, I didn't look at your tabs.

    I read many of the blogs from SSCS participants. . . but I don't have a list anywhere on my blog. Guess I should think about doing one.

    Speaking of SSCS. . . will there be one in 2013?

    Thank you,

    Sherry V
