One things asked of bloggers is that they visit other blogs, read and comment. And people will probably visit back. And others on the list will visit you. If I have more TIME I would be doing more of this!
But you do find unexpected gems. And I'd like to mention Tui Snyder's blog, Offbeat and Overlooked travel. at http://www.mentalmosaic.com/blog/. She visited me first, and I visited her back and was intrigued by her whole blog, esp. her photographs.
She has published a book called Unexpected Texas, and that is her U entry, and I am making it my U entry for today.
