Yesterday I told you I am a creature of habit and yet I am going to dispel that thought today or am I? This is my third year participating in the Slice of Life Challenge. Each year, I have written more, read more, and commented more. Each year the number of participants has grown. I find I can no longer read all of the posts daily so I have to pick and choose what to read. I want to be loyal to my "old favorites" but I also want to be welcoming to those of you who are joining our blog community for the first time. How to choose? Well, without realizing what I was doing, I fell into a pattern...sometimes starting at the top and working my way down until I had no more steam. Other times starting at the bottom and working my way up. Yesterday in order to be fair, I started in the middle (Kevin) and worked my way one up, one down, another up, another down. Do you have a system? Do you have a favorite writer you gravitate to first? Do the comments with the link inspire you to open it up? Does one's title speak to you, begging you to come in for a visit? The reading of other posts gives me inspiration for my own. It really does not matter in what direction I read, just that I read...learning from others as I go along.
