in Birding North America

First, I want to say… Hello everyone! or, as you will see on all my future posts my signature  Howdee all,
Secondly….

What the heck am I doing here with all these famous, time proven birders, bird bloggers, writers, photographers?
These people can write…..I cant even spell.  Forget punctuation. I obviously don’t have much regard for it.…….…see those little periods?…..get used to them………they are my little pauses.  Run on sentences? I am a pro!
If you are a stickler for any of the above……then run fast..real fast!
Am I embarrassed about it?…sometimes, sort of,  but… not really. That’s me…I have other specialties..

You see…

I am a blogaholic and I am proud of it…Not a blogaholic in the normal sense, though, I do a fair amount of blogging……. My specialty is reading blogs. My favorites are Bird and nature blogs.

If you were to check out my blog site you would see a long blog roll, arraigned by area of the United States, Canada and other countries..…go check it out to see.

So…. if you looked you can see the name of my blog is Dawns Bloggy Blog. Not a very birdie name….I chose the name years ago when my husband retired. We sold our home, packed up our belongings and hit the road in our 40ft motor home called Homey.  We didn’t bird when I first started blogging.  My blog was a travelogue, a way of showing my family and friends what we were doing and seeing.  It wasn’t until a few years into the fulltime Rving  lifestyle that we started birding.  I then, started reading bird blogs and my blogroll grew and grew….and now my blogroll  is about ten feet longGoogle reader is my friend.  I spend every waking moment reading blogs.  Ok, maybe that’s not totally true…I spend almost every waking moment reading blogs. :)
So… when Gunnar approached me about blogging for his new venture, Birdingblogs.com I decided I would be best at writing less, (Thank goodness, you say) and introducing you to some Bloggers and blog posts that I have enjoyed.
There are so may amazing Bird bloggers out there, amateur and professional.
I want to introduce you to some of my Bird blogging friends..and.. I want to make new friends…..and maybe, show off your birding blogs and photos as well.  So…. if I don’t follow your blog and you want to make my blog roll 100 feet long…..then send me a comment with your blog URL and I will be happy to read you.
Because as you know…

I am a Blogaholic and I am not ashamed to admit it.

Stay tuned ..Same time ..Same place….next week for my first Blog intro

Featured Bird Blogger of the week

Could it be you????
