Center Stage: An Introduction

As a follower and fan of Alabama Bloggers, there was no gnashing of teeth when Rachel asked me to start a column. And I may or may not be attracted to things called "Center Stage."

Each week, we will take a fanfare look at one of the many great blogs being churned out here in Alabama. With more than 150 bloggers already on TheList (make sure you're on it!), I'm confident that my job as a blog stalker is secure.

Since I wouldn't ask anyone to do something I'm not willing to do, (unless it involves rodents or the word hollandaise") my blog is up first:

Jamie's Rabbits

I started blogging July 2, 2008 as a way to share random moments with a best friend who moved 2,100 miles away.

Here is my first post:
"I am attempting to blog. I have usually avoided the commitment due to my pride of trying to be witty and eloquent. I have sacrificed those goals in order to capture some moments. Bear with me."

Why is the blog called Jamie's Rabbits?
My name is Jamie. I have this frustrating habit of “chasing rabbits” when I speak. This simply means I tend to get off topic and follow after another subject and then another always wondering how I started talking about gas station hot dogs. My blog tends to be a different "rabbit" every day.

Who are you?
Event planner, blogger, single, sister, daughter, aunt, fairy godmother, friend, teacher, small group leader, volunteer and consumer of shiny things. I hate ladybugs. I love God.

Why should I read your blog? That's really your call. I find it's a nice break from things that make you stress out like jobs, children, driving, and lines at the supermarket. I do not actually condone surfing the web while driving. Do as I say, not as I do.

So make your way to Jamie's Rabbits, for an entertaining blog with no real theme. Unless random is a theme. Is it?

If you would like to have your blog featured on "Center Stage" then contact Jamie so she can swing by your neck of the internet woods. Please know she sometimes shows up uninvited, so you may see your blog on stage if she really digs it.

I look forward to reading and find some great new blogs! Good idea!

Rachel said...

How can you hate ladybugs? They are about the only kind of bugs I can stand!

Jamie said...

Leigh: Me too!

Rachel: There's a story there of angst and's sure to show up on my blog one of these days. I get a ton of flak for it :)

Stacey said...

I like this idea. You are our very own blog shopper. One more way for me to be lazy this summer... ;)

Stacey: Hopefully everything I find will fit perfectly and be one size smaller than you normally wear.
