Last spring I conducted a reader survey, and to my utter amazement, nearly 500 people filled out the dang thing. Of course I read the results one-by-one as they came in (thanks again to everyone who took the time to fill one out!)…however, it took me a while to get the results sifted and sorted out in an excel doc. Something tells me a college kid with a marketing major could have sorted it out in ten minutes, but for me, it took no less than six months. Things like this are what make me resentful toward the younger generation. Things like this make me think I will one day be that grouchy old-lady on the front porch, grating cheese on my chin hair, yelling, “HEY YOU, YOU GET YOUR DAMN HOVERBOARD OFF MY LAWN.”

Anyway, about the survey results…one of the questions on the survey was this: What other blogs do you follow? Any favorites?
The list of what came out was fascinating. Over 1,500 blog names came up, about 100 of which are now added to my Feedly reader (btw, I really like Feedly, don’t you? Much better than Google Reader, I think). But what was really interesting was that many of the same names kept on popping up, over and over again. I took away so much from the list, I thought it would be a great idea to share some of them with you. Some of them are well known, some not-so-much, and some are my absolute, long-time favorites. Some are crafty, some are stylish, some are deeply personal. You can tell a lot about a person by what they read – and I can tell you guys have great taste!
Also, I’ll admit, I love it when a reader and I share the same taste in blogs. It makes me feel like we share a sisterhood of traveling pants style connection, minus the pants and sisterhood.
Without further adieu…
