I ask because I want to shake up my routine surfing/RSS reading a bit.
Also, I want to read you. I know many of you blog regularly, but I don't know if I know all of your sites. So tell me what you write and what you like to read. I am always up for adding more must-reads to my feeds.
My current blogs-on-RSS list after the jump ...
I like the pictures, they tell me stories
