After joining in on the Writing 101 Challenge of The Daily Post, I discovered so many nice blogs, varying from poetry to everyday adventures to … so much more, that it kind of blew the blogroll in my side bar…
So I decided to make it a separate page, keep it in order and allow you to browse it.
You can either browse the “personal recommendations” below, the sidebar with the little square pictures (all dear fellow WordPress bloggers), or the list of links that’s sitting below which leads you to even more amazing content to discover!
The blogs on this page are not in chronological order, rather at random.
No order, no intent.
Because I like it.
We all could need a little randomness in our lives!
Blogs I already followed before #Writing101 – and also some other links
