Recommended

I had a bumper crop of potential tenants this week. 14. The most I've ever had, I think. Too many to review so I'll just mention the one I picked, Recommended,which appears over there at the top of my left column and the 3 runner up blogs.

Recommended is a blog run by Tina, a 28 year old woman in Berlin, Germany. I chose her due to the content of her blog. Tina's blog is filled with things that she's found on the Internet that she likes or is interested in. Her design isn't so great--at least not to me--and when you first go there you might think you're on an advertisement blog but that's just the look she has going there.

Tina started her blog in January of this year and the first recommendation she had was for a photo blog "daily dose of imagery". This is a photo blog focused (sorry--bad joke) mainly on the city of Toronto but also has pictures from France, the UK and Iran. Almost every day, Tina has a new recommendation for something you can do, read, or experience on the web. March 2, for example, was dedicated to Sodoku. I've only read about 15% of Tina's site so far but hope to be caught up by the end of the week. She's got an amazing amount of information here!

I seem to be starting a tradition of focusing on the feet of my tenants. I assure you it's not anything personal! LOL Anyway, that's Tina over there on the left.

On April 23 she posted "A Strip Generator" but I was quite disappointed to find out that it merely generated comic strips. Damn! Would you believe that there's a website that informs the public as to the best way to pour ketchup? Well, Tina's found one and on April 12th she illustrated the technique and gave links to the site. The web is a weird place at times, folks.

Tina's also got a blog dedicated to dreaming and the such but I've never had any interest in that so I didn't even visit! Feel free to shoot on over if you're curious tho. I'm sure Tina would enjoy the company in her dreams.

This is Tina's cat Chip. Doesn't he look like he's having a nice dream?


The 3 runner up blogs are:

Simply Sassy: Dee Jay runs this blog and I've only been reading it for the past week. I really like it and if I get off my fat ass and start up Dreamweaver sometime in the near future, I'll add the blog to my blogroll (I keep it on my Roadrunner page so that's why I need DW).


A Yoga Coffee Outlook: Kelly is a woman of beauty and impeccable taste. This is obvious when you look at her blogroll and see my blog there. Her post for Wednesday was of the wordless variety and related to some very freaky looking jewelry. *shiver*

Long, Slow, Beautiful Dance: Poor Laci's had a bad week. She was in a car accident and while the person that provoked the situation did come forward, the police didn't charge her with any moving violation so Laci's on the hook for it with her insurance company. Life sucks at times! We've all had moments like that. I hope things look up soon, Laci.

Looks like you've got some good recommendations there. I like the photoblog. I've considered doing that as well, but... I have trouble finding the time for one - and my cartooning blog never took of the ground.

Here via Michele today,

Thank you for the lovely introduction, Dave. It's one reason why I left a bid with your blog. It's an honor that you accepted it, especially seeing the other great blogs that wanted to have that spot! :)
To everyone who loved the cat pic...that's Chip my family's 13 year old tomcat. I only get to see him when I visit home and I miss him over here.
