Sorry folks, citing unfair work conditions and low wages, Megryansmom has declared a writer's strike effective immediately.
Instead of the usual fresh and funny blog post, we bring you a rerun.

I started reading blogs a little over a year ago. Among other things, I care for TOF while Augie Dawg works. He gets here before the crack of dawn and I'm often not tired enough to go back to sleep. Besides I like the peacefulness of this quiet house, (before all hell breaks loose) as I sip my morning coffee. In come the blogs.
I started with Rosie's blog and then discovered Dawn over here. I followed Juju's story on CarePages and from there it gets a little fuzzy, because it spread like wildfire. A click here and a click there and I was sucked in.
I added these blogs to my list of favs, in a nice neat folder labeled Blogs. I returned every morning, coffee in hand, eagerly awaiting new posts. I had no idea what a Google Reader was or how to subscribe to posts at this point. Every morning I went through my list of new friends, hoping to get a smile or a chuckle or some kind of update. I laughed some, I cried some. A few blogs put things into perspective for me, the grass isn't always greener. I have no idea how I even arrived at some blogs, but there are no accidents.
Each of the blogs I have stumbled upon made an impact on me. There are many amazing bloggers out there. Blogs about anything and everything you can imagine. Family blogs, money saving blogs, sports blogs, craft blogs. Blogs about how to keep TOF amused so I can read more blogs!
I was too shy to comment back then, didn't think it mattered. (Oh my how it matters!) I was afraid of rejection. One of the first comments I left was on this blog. I didn't get rejection at all, I got me a genuine dose of southern hospitality, in a email reply. To my comment. I was sucked even deeper into this Land of Blog.
It was about then that I realized................
