Blog Friend Feature Friday: Must-Read Bloggers

I've featured 30 bloggers so far as part of Blog Friend Feature(BFF).

But, some of you are new(ish) to my blog and you might not have met all the BFFs! So, I'm going to link to all the BFF posts by name of the blog featured. *Some blog names have been changed since they were first featured here. They are listed by their new name.*

If there is someone on the list that you are not familiar with, go meet them!

Go meet a new blogger!

I have some fabulous ladies lined up as BFFs for the month of January and will be working on February's schedule soon.

To be a BFF: have a fabulous blog and be an active reader here at Things I Can't Say. If I'm not sure you know what BFF is, I do not ask you to be one for fear you will think that I want to go get matching BFF necklaces or something.  But, please keep in mind that there are many fabulous blogs that I want to feature and only one feature a week, so thanks for beng patient with me!

WHAT?!?!?! You mean you aren't wearing 30 BFF half-hearts and my matching half isn't in the mail?!?!

Lists! I love lists! Thanks for sharing all the amazing bloggers from BFF!

ROFL about the necklaces. You know, I think I had one of those when I was about 12. Wonder what happened to it.

Run on.

January 7, 2011 at 9:35 AM  
Blogger Heather said...

Good idea. I definitely missed some of these and want to check them out.

I also am totally willing to make a BFF necklace if that is any incentive to schedule me. (Granted it will be made from macaroni and shrinky dinks.)

Have a great weekend.

Over half of those blogs are blogs I regularly read :)

Anonymous Megan (Best of Fates) said...

Oh..so once upon a time you asked if anyone wanted to be your BFF on Twitter and I said yes and you responded that you didn't know if I knew what that meant and then I felt stupid and got really confused and came over and read like 15 BFF posts to try and find one that explained what I figured must be the secret meaning behind it! And then I was going to email you and say you were right, because I'd only thought it was a featured blogger and couldn't for the life of me find the secret on your blog. But then I felt too stupid and also lazy. But all I had to do was wait 'til now! ...and now I think this comment might make me look dumb but I'm posting it anyway!

I love this list! I know I missed a few at the beginning, and now I can go meet them :)

We need BFF/Sister ones!

Thanks for thinking of me way back when, when you started out doing BFF. I am so honored to be the first one!

Thanks for doing this, Shell!

I really enjoy this blog and look forward to visiting these BFF's!

P.S. Thanks for not wanting to wear the matching necklaces. :)

Thanks, all I need is more great blogs to read ;). I recognize several but will definitely be checking out some more.

Blogger By Word of Mouth said...

Great list, and since I read half of them that makes me at least half as cool as you. But once I meet you in TN, we won't have to buy matching necklaces and we won't need a blog to be BFF's - since we may find ourselves sharing bedrooms if we don't all get these room reservations sorted out - damn it :)

January 7, 2011 at 1:05 PM

That's a lot of people.

Thank you for finding me friends!

Wow seems like you started this just yesterday. There are some blogs I follow that I had no idea where I came across them - until looking through this list haha.

I'm digging in. So needed this today after my horrible blog hop experience. Someone must make them go away.

You're a rock star!! I loved you since I found you...but that really wasn't that long ago (in my defense, i've only been blogging for 4 months). I already know and love a lot of these...but I am so glad you made the list so I could catch up on those I missed...you know, before I knew about this whole other world called "Blogosphere". Kinda sounds psyi-fi-ish...I'm off-task...great list girl!!

Awesome! Thanks for the list and for aaaaaalllll the new blogs to explore! :-)

What a great list of features! You mean to say if I am ever lucky enough to be a BFF I can't go sending you a homemade yarn bracelett?! Say it isnt so!

Wow, no necklace? hmmmmm...sad :( ehhhh, all right, I guess since I have already been hooked on BFF Friday I will continue to poke around.

Thank you for listing them again!!!

Great list! I have loved checking out every one of them.
So no necklace? Maybe those safety pins with beads on them to wear on your shoelaces? Do you know what I am talking about? I think you are too young. ;)

I have no idea how I found this but now I'm pretty sure I have a new goal. Or at least one hell of a long list of new blogs to read.

Really do appreciate the list, you are too cool! I've visited most of the sites and can now catch up on the ones I've missed. Thanks.

Oh, just changed my blog to a domain address at http://mainstreamsolarcooking.com in case you want to fix your link.

I didn't even realize how many blogs that I read, that have been featured here. I wonder if I found them through you first, or if you just have super-excellent taste in blogs? Hmmm....
and um...I really like those BFF necklaces.

I know and love so many of those blogs, but most of them are brand new. Thanks for the links! (Also, thanks for visiting the Break Room! I always smile when I see your name there). :)
