We are all busy people and this time of year is, I think we can agree, busier than most.
At times like this when I just seem to have five minutes here and there I thought it would be fun to have some interesting places to visit for ideas and inspiration. I'm also starting to firm up plans for the new blog and I thought I would use you as guinea pigs try out some new things to see if you like them.
Blog-rolls and blog-lists can be quite contentious. I have heard of serious spats because Blogger One features Blogger Two, but doesn't get featured in return. Or where Blogger Three is on Blogger Four's blog-roll for a few months and then suddenly finds they have been removed, resulting in feeling rather hurt and wondering what they did to deserve being dropped without so much as a by-your-leave.
With this in mind I have started a Take Five list in the sidebar.
The Take Five list is not a blog-roll. It's a collection of websites, blogs, and photos from flickr (taken by other people) which I have discovered on my journey around the web.
There may be food, knitting, art, youtube, quilting, or books - pretty much anything and everything.
The most important thing is that it's not going be a permanent list. Instead it will be dynamic and will change often - at least weekly. So if you see something you like, bookmark it quickly before it vanishes!
If you are reading this in a feed reader or in an email, you'll need to visit the blog to see these delights, I'm afraid.
