It's Carnival Week for New England Bloggers....

Monday, June 21, 2010.....






Does that mean I've run away and become a Carny? Nah.... It means that I'm introducing a fellow New England Blogger to my readers. Elizabeth at Thoughts from an Evil Overlord created a community for New England bloggers.

For one week, New England Bloggers will have cotton candy, livestock and games....oh wait, there is none of that in virtual land, but imagine eating while reading some really fun bloggers I've discovered through the New England Bloggers.


Months and months ago, I discovered New England Girl who writes about her everyday life in Western MA and Vodka Logic who, at the moment, is combating a weight loss challenge with humor.

However, the carnival challenge is to meet and greet someone new, someone I can relate to and I have to admit, this person found me and I really like her style.

Cheryl at Deckside Thoughts wrote a piece that spoke to me about a morning dove Freakin Morning Dove which struck a cord with me because she too had problems with a bird. And her take on squirrels, Squirrels cracks me up.

I think what I like most about Cheryl is her writing style -- capturing humor in mundane stuff can be difficult. But, she does it.

If you get a chance, check her out.

this is such a good idea, and as a NE blogger myself I should really pull my finger out and read more of the local bloggers but there are so many good ones I can't keep up!

Hey, LMB! I agree, for me many of the blogs I visit regularly are more about their writing style than their topic. Vodka Logic is a fav of mine too, she is so dry-witted!
Thanks for participating in the carnival!

You know I love my fellow Massholes (this includes all New Englanders, in my mind)! :-)

Hmmm. I may come out of my hole for that. I dropped out of blog world because it seemed as if everyone was nitpicking. I will turn my lights back on :)

FYI- You are one of the few that make me want to continue to blog.
