One of the best bits of Blogging on a regular basis is discovering new Blogs on your travels.
I 'follow' lots of Blogs, I have a list of good Blogs on my sidebar and nip by and visit lots more when I have time, but sometimes you stumble across a new one, usually through someone else's sidebar. After all if you like reading someones Blog it stands to reason you are on a similar wavelength to them and will enjoy some of what they enjoy. It is always a pleasure to 'dip' into someone elses life as a welcome guest.
Some of my favourites at the moment are to do with self-sufficiency and living 'the Good Life' for obvious reasons. When we dip into these we can tap into a wealth of ideas and tips, we can help solve each others problems and motivate each other.
My bestest Blog at the moment for reading daily, and one I have followed for quite a while now, has to be Rural Idiocy. Max is on a similar journey to me but in Brittany. He has the added pressure of foreign language, a family to support and a need to set himself up for his completely self-sufficient year next year. He is an inspiration. We have both helped each other (I hope) with ideas and suggestions and picked each other up when we've felt down about this life style. Through his sidebar I have tapped into many other lovely Bloggers writing about the same things.
Another very recent discovery has been Rebecca Bakes Cakes, a Blog by a lovely girl baking her way through the year, with a different cake or biscuit recipe each week, can you guess why I like it? This weeks recipe is definitely on the menu!
The picture at the start of this post, is three of the new girls (Rhode Island Red Hybrids) also dipping, into a pig trough, freshly filled with water.
Sometimes it's nice to dip, into cool clear water or into someone else's life, it can clear your head, inspire you, make you a better person, relax you........ or just quench your thirst.......all good!!
