It's almost spring, and time for a little housecleaning on the sidebar. My blogroll was getting quite large, so I thought I'd break it into categories. Easier said than done. For one thing, I find that I am quite narrow-minded in the types of blogs I read; they all have something to do with nature, appreciating nature, living in harmony with nature, gardening, homesteading, living more simply, etc. A lot of blogs I read, like the types of music I listen to, seem to defy any conventional categorization. I thought "Towards a saner lifestyle" might be a good category, until I realized that all of the blogs fell under that heading, so if you're on the list you are now officially a "Blogger For A More Sane Existence". Even though I question the sanity of some, myself included.
The subcategories are "Food for Thought", "The Art of Seeing", "Nature and Place", and "Homegrown". Again, a lot of blogs could fit more than one or all of these categories. It was a judgment call for me. I don't even know which one of these I would file Sand Creek Almanac under.
I also wanted to call your attention to the most recent addition, under "Homegrown", Raising Frolic . I had seen it once or twice courtesy of Liz at Pocket Farm, but I didn't realize until Gina commented here yesterday that Raising Frolic was another northern Minnesota blog. Through email I found out we probably live within sixty miles or so of each other. Woo-hoo, a local blogger!!! And a very good read; check it out.
