Julie & Julia and Blogging For Bliss

Yesterday we saw the movie Julie & Julia. Loved it! Now I'm obsessed with Julia Child and want to read her biography and I also want to read Julie Powell's blog from beginning to end (or at least take a stab at it).

Here are the links for Julie Powell's blog on the Julie/Julia Project:

And since Barnes and Noble was just next door, I picked up a copy of the new book, Blogging For Bliss, by Tara Frey.

Lots of lovely surprises enclosed for me! There are more blogs mentioned inside that I've never heard of. Stunned to think that for all the hours my backside has sat in front of the computer, merrily clicking on links, that I haven't yet exhausted the supply of fun out there.

I'm looking forward to reading it. I guess I'm not quite sure yet what I'm doing here in blog land or what the heck my "voice" is??? It's certainly a goofy one, that's for sure.

Anyway, I'm having fun and if anyone is listening, I hope you are too!


  1. Oh, I want this book so bad! I'm not sure why Lindsey and I started blogging either. I just knew I Loved blog hopping! If we have a 'voice' then I'm not certain what we are saying either, but I just hope our blog is a friendly, hospitable place to land for awhile and bring a smile or two. And, don't wish everyone who read it would leave a comment! Twyla

  2. We're blog hopping kindred spirits Twyla!

    Your blog most definitely is an inviting, charming place and your warmth and kindness are so apparent. You make us all feel cozy. :)

    You're too cute - I don't think I'm ever going to have to worry about being inundated by comments. But putting myself in the shoes of those that enjoy huge numbers, it must be both gratifying and intimidating. I'm very shy, so it'd probably scare me teehee - so probably just as well that it's quiet around here.
