Other Websites I Recommend 2

I thought I might offer up a few more websites that I read to stimulate my own creativity. Today I have a couple of humor blogs, an adventure blog, and some amazing photographs to share. I hope you enjoy them.

If you are not reading The Bloggess I have no idea where you've been. Jenny Lawson's blog is witty and sharp and not for young children or people sensitive to foul language. I find her to be one of the funniest people on the Internet and I think you should go read everything right now. While you're at it read her book Let's Pretend This Never Happened as well. I'll wait. Also ridiculously humorous is Josh Fruhlinger's The Comics Curmudgeon. This has been a can't miss website for me for years. I usually read about once a week so I can sit back and enjoy it. Fruhlinger is currently working on a Kickstarter Campaign to fund a novel that is sure to be hilarious. A guy I kind of know named Drew Jacob is currently riding a bike from Minnesota to Brazil.

Camping? What?

Occasionally, for a change of pace, I like to write humorous bits. Here is a post I wrote about camping. If you read this you might think I dislike camping, but you would be wrong.

Article from OregonLive

A couple of months ago the home and garden editor of OregonLive sent me an email asking if I would share some photos of our tiny house. Having no problem with that I sent the photos on and didn't think anything about it.

Today, while looking at my stats over at Living in 120 Square Feet I discovered a very nice article published yesterday at the OregonLive website.

LaVoie, who lives in a mountainous area of North Carolina,  describes herself on her website as a writer, brewer and adventurer. She writes on her blog, Life in 120 Square Feet, about daily life in her home -- such as the chores it requires. Although you'd think a small space would require less cleaning, it's also more likely to show the dirt tracked in, so her place, in its rustic setting, has to be swept several times a day. Granted, this doesn't take long. I encourage you to read the entire article at OregonLive.
