Kickin Back – Day One

on March 10, 2013


If you read my previous post, “Kickin Back“, then you know that I have decided to take a trip through WordPress.  I started this journey in order to take a break from posting (all about me) and catching up with your posts (all about you!)


Yesterday, I started my trip by traveling down the “Blogs I Follow” interstate and visited some of the boys and gals N the Hood!  I discovered that I have great taste in choosing great Blog Sites!  I spent hours reading and commenting to those of you who posted yesterday and had a great time doing it!

The first thing I stumbled across was the best inspirational video I’ve ever seen posted by Simple Tom.  I reblogged it but if you missed it, you can see it now by clicking here.   It’s a beautiful thing!

I continued down the road and visited some of the sites that make me laugh..always!  I dropped in on sites that I follow and read when I want to feel all warm and fuzzy; or ones that make me aware of events that interest me!  Great words, great photos, great poems..all of these filled my first day of my trip..and I thank you all!


I did stop in at one site and found that I had to “Unfollow” it.  Sorry, dude, too many F Bombs and too little content.  I wish you well, but you’re not for me!


Today I plan on prowling through sites I have yet to visit by following the “Topics” Road on the Reader Interstate.  Since there are quite a few, it may take me some time to quench my thirst for more…more..more great posts!


I’ll be looking for posts that make me laugh…


Make me think…


Or just downright inspire me!


But, I will be taking paths that lead back to you, my followers, and I’ll be keeping up-do-date with your posts.  I’ll be writing about my adventures in WordPressland daily to let you in on my discoveries!


Before I jump back on my bike and head on down the WordPress Road again, I think I’m gonna run out and get a quick haircut!  See you all soon!

    Definitely keep sharing the great blogs you discover! I’m new to blogging and still trying to find what I like and wordpress’s recommendations aren’t always on target. Thanks for sharing!

    Love it! I look forward to seeing what you come up with – there’s so much out there it’s great to have a tour guide. Also – love your use of the animal photos – you’re welcome to use any of the cats I post – they’re all mine so I own the rights so have at ’em if they’re useful. 🙂

    This is a great idea! I think I will try doing the same thing during the summer when my school duties end and peace reigns. There is so much to learn!

    Love the “Make me think” photo! I look like that when I think ….

    Hope you enjoyed your weekend of blog roaming… sometimes you just have to wander around here… it’s surprising the things you’ll encounter, and how many interesting people there are. Wandering around WP is much more interesting and educational than scrolling through one’s Facebook feed….

    • I am like a ghost now on Facebook..if it wasn’t for my kids being on there..I wouldn’t even have an account. WordPress lets me get to really know the people I’m reading about and I feel a link to all of you!

    Hihi! Cute pictures! And the best of luck on your journey – I hope you find all your looking for 😉

  6. I have all the blogs that I follow come into a separate email address and read them almost daily. So, as I clear my inbox, I am constantly going through them without always going to the website for their blog. Except when I make comments like this one.

    This is why I am reading this post one week late.

    So, this is my way of keeping up and following you and others. Thanks for great content.

    • And I thank you for reading. In the short time I have been on WordPress, I am amazed by the number of readers that delve into my archives and read my posts.

      I am so happy to you like the posts, and like the saying goes..”better late than never!”
