Awesome blogs

I've been kind of lax on the blogging front this summer. Not just in the volume of posts, but also just keeping on top of things. I haven't been following other Nunavut blogs as much as I have in the past nor have I been keeping an eye out for new blogs. It's weird, because I've always been quite proud of Nunavut's blogging community, which is larger than you might think given the size of the place, and a pretty tight-knit bunch.

Hopefully with summer wrapping up, I'll get more on top of things. I'm going to try and get better and posting on a regular basis again. Perhaps not every day, like I've tried to do for years, but I'd like to be hitting at least five times a week.

Also, I've gone and ruthlessly used Clare's always excellent list of Nunavut blogs and updated my list on the side. If you're a Nunavut blogger and you're not there, by all means drop me a line and I'll add you to the list.

Although I feel the need to draw special attention to A Slice of Deep Fried Awesome, which is written by my friend Nicole. I've known Nicole for, Christ, a long time. Certainly a decade or more. Cathy's known for her since Kindergarten. Nicole moved up here three years ago, and being a shy, reserved thing promptly took over the city in something under three weeks. I'm looking forward to see what she does with the blog. If she cuts loose, look out. It'll be a hell of a lot of fun to read, if nothing else.

And now, because there was a strange burning orb in the sky today, we decided to go out to the park and take Boo with us. Many photos were taken, but this is by far my favourite. Enjoy.

Yes! I noticed some of the new blogs! That makes me, the ever interested southerner in Nunavut blogs, HAPPY!

I especially like 'a slice of deep fried awesome'! I let her know that too right away, and that I found her blog through you! O happy days for me! (I guess I have no life... since I just love to read about other ppl's lives so much...hehe). But seriously I was actually laughing out loud reading 'a slice of deep fried awesome---Nicole' blog.

O wow, you're so apologetic on your amount of posts. Seriously there are other blogs (Australia) that honestly don't post for months...and I feel like giving up on them LOL! So I wouldn't worry if I were you. I'm always happy with your posts, and number of posts.

•finally shuts up and leaves• hehe
