Hillary, What blogs do you read, can you suggest good blogs for me. I'm recently retired. Considering starting a blog and want to view good blogs.

Mr. Bill,
I have very little free time, I'm not a Blog Reader the following is a list of West Virginia Blogs, I belong to the WVa Bloggers Group, its my belief that each of the blogs and there are hundreds in the 304 Blog . . www.304.blogs.com click on the link. The Herald also has some excellent blogs, I must admit - the one blog I did read weekly - Jim Ross's Blog is no longer available. Ms. B suggest you google the topic of interest and then click on the blogs listed.

Bill T:

I love the city daily photo blogs. Check out your favorite city and see if it has a daily photo blog. The idea started in Paris with a man named Eric and has spread to 1,000 cities worldwide. You usually get a great picture and a few facts. Start with this NC one:


I don't think there is a daily photo site from WV yet. If you find one, let us know.

Good luck! Your bookmark bar will faster than you can imagine!
