Link to a friend's blog site. I do not have a blog site myself (no time!) and since at last count 23 of my friends did have them, and it would take over an hour a day (which I so do not have) to keep up on a regular basis, I do not read them either except when triggered for a particular item. But I'll add other friends blog sites here (with or without identification as requested) if asked nicely.
