Blog Scavenger Hunt

I got into knitting because of blogs, and I starting blogging more because of knitting. Funny, huh? Anyway, a couple of years ago I did a fun Knitting Blog Scavenger Hunt, and I thought it would be fun to spin off from that for a new scavenger hunt inspired by Learn&Play at CML. Please join me! If you're reading this, you're tagged. Let's see how many L&P bloggers we can link to!


Da Rulz:
  1. Use a different blog to answer each question.
  2. Be sure to include hot links in your answers, and if you're referencing a specific post, be sure you're linking to the permalink for that post (not just the general blog addy).
  3. Not every linked blog needs to be a Library person or a L&P participant.
  4. If you do this meme, please come back here and give me a link so I can read it!

Da Thingz to find:
  1. A blog written by someone who lives close to you physically.
  2. A blog you read written by someone you've never met, but would like to.
  3. A blog written by someone who has the job you used to have, or the job you wanna have someday.
  4. A blog entry that made you think about something a new way.
  5. A blog entry that made you laugh so hard your co-workers and/or family asked to know what was going on.
  6. A blog from someone you've known a long time but haven't hung out with in a long time.
  7. A blog or post that inspired you to start blogging (or just written by the person who got you going).
  8. A blog from someone you never thought would be blogging.
  9. An article/post/site that you think could change the library world.
  10. A blog you've found that makes you feel great every time you read it.

My Answers (left off the main section for your cut & paste pleasure . . .):

Da Thingz to find:
  1. A blog written by someone who lives close to you physically. Maggie!
  2. A blog you read written by someone you've never met, but would like to. My friend, Cat in the UK
  3. A blog written by someone who has the job you used to have, or the job you wanna have someday. The Sock Princess - she's retired and can do whatever she wants (mostly knitting, but not posting) all day. I've also always wished I could be a stay at home mom (added bonus: being in a cool foreign country)
  4. A blog entry that made you think about something a new way. Michael always gets me thinking in new ways. This is just one of many times.
  5. A blog entry that made you laugh so hard your co-workers and/or family asked to know what was going on. Shelf Check almost always makes me laugh. Although most of her posts are her own comic, the other day she posted a great vid of Carol Burnett as a Librarian - with Lucille Ball!
  6. A blog from someone you've known a long time but haven't hung out with in a long time. A long time ago, I worked with Jim and Annette. It's been fun to catch up again online.
  7. A blog or post that inspired you to start blogging (or just written by the person who got you going). Janis was the first person to talk to me about blogging after she went to the Internet Librarian Conference, years ago, but GottaBook, Don and Gerald really inspired me to do more than I'd been doing.
  8. A blog from someone you never thought would be blogging. I'm so excited about my co-workers who have started blogs! Yay Linden Team!
  9. An article/post/site that you think could change the library world. It may seem like a small thing, but how we market ourselves could really change our future.
  10. A blog you've found that makes you feel great every time you read it. I look forward to reading Post Secret every Sunday. I don't always feel happy, but it always makes me think. I've just recently discovered this blog from a former CML-er that makes me smile every time I visit - fabulous photography!

Thanks for the mention! Aren't smiling baby faces the best!?!

PS. Yes, I do think the sweaters on those boys in the buckeye post were hand-knitted. Love them, too! I'm always delighted to find such fashionable kids for my sessions.
