The Blog Carnival Grab Bag

I have been blogging for one year, and I feel as though I was trapped inside a cave, because for most of that time, I only peaked my head out occasionally to speak my mind.  Thanks to Darren at Problogger for showing me the importance of solid interaction with other bloggers, and J Money, from Budgets Are Sexy, for yanking me out of the cave and encouraging me to participate in these carnivals.  Yeah J Money, now I understand your addiction a little bit better.  My Google feed page is seriously suffering from a capacity overload!!  Good thing I like to read, and hopefully soon I’ll be ready to host some carnivals myself!
