Hasn't been too much about self sufficiency lately, but as the others have said...give it a try!

I started reading the Frugal Queen and although I like lots of what she says she a bit too busy for me., in fact exhausting. She does more before she goes to work than I do all day. For fun I enjoy http://disasterfilm.blogspot.co.uk/ he is just "my" fun level and off his link is one named Tom Stephenson who I also enjoy reading. Be warned I can spend hours trawling through these links.

http://www.selfsufficientish.com/forum/ ... 11&t=13615

This has all the Ishers blogs on it.

I've gone through these two threads and taken everyone's blogs/flickrs/shops/websites and made stickies.

Personally, a real favourite of mine is http://www.pioneerwoman.com
She's ace. Read the whole story of her romance - it's beautiful and guaranteed to make you laugh and cry!

I have one, but it's missed off Fee's list. I'm forgotten here now as I don't post regularly enough. I'm too busy with photography, pollinating insect projects and blogging :-)

Errm, I don't think it's possible to forget you Mandy. :lol:

I am impressed with your photos on FB, I wish I could take pictures like that.
All mine look as if they've been taken with a box brownie. :(

Yet there are people who use special effects to get that look on purpose, you know! What makes me totally crack up is those who favour the 1970s Kodak Instamatic effect look. It's hideous! Oh how I hated those blue casts or green casts to my horrid square photos. :lol:

Thank you for saying nice things though, it's a relatively new hobby and I'm learning loads about the insects in my garden by looking at them through the lens, and then finding out more about what it is I am seeing. In the long run it is all related to my gardening anyway. (I don't put half of what I post elsewhere on facebook as I feel they prefer the 'pretty' pictures, and not the ones of parasitised Large White caterpillars with larvae emerging from them. I think that would interest you though! :mrgreen: ).

Mandy who? :scratch:

So, you're pollinating insects now. This I have to hear about - the human race hasn't had a new perversion for centuries :lol:

Very true, and when you really think about it, "blogging" sounds a bit of a dubious activity too. :iconbiggrin:
