A Bloggy Game

Maybe this will become the next blogosphere meme -- and it will have started right here!! Cool, huh?

I'm going to think of 5 numbers, 1-10 (if you're cool, you can roll a D10 for this, but my dice are missing and presumed lost). I'm going to start at my blogroll, count down the first number, and go to that blog. Then count down the next number on their blogroll, and so on. +NOTE -- the numbers CAN duplicate, and you should use the first blogroll on the page as you scroll down.

My numbers are: 3, 8, 2, 9, and 4. So here we go!

  1. Back of the Envelope. This is a great site run by a great person with good taste in Webcomics. He's also hosting the Storyblogging Carnival this time, which should interest everyone who is taking part in NaNoWriMo. Eight places down in his blogroll takes me to ...
  2. Parableman. One of the first blogs I ever read. Philosophy and politics from a Christian perspective. I like Jeremy's post on the problems with strict constructionism regarding the Constitution. I always thought of myself as a strict constructionist, but I think I may have to change to originalist after reading this post. Two down on his blogroll takes me to ...
  3. Uncle Sam's Cabin, by Jeremy's wife Samantha. Among the many great posts on her blog, she has a post reminding us who we are thankful to when we say we're thankful for something. That's something easy to forget. Counting nine down on her blogroll takes me to ...
  4. The Gad(d)about. FINALLY, a new blog!! I like the very first (as of right now) post, talking about God's obvious enjoyment of irony. This is a blog that I'll probably add to my feed reader (Mozilla Thunderbird -- works great!!) But there's no blogroll, so I'll go back to Uncle Sam's and use hers. Four down takes me to ...
  5. McRyanMac. Top of the page is about a story that I've been thinking about today, ever since I first heard about it. Anne Rice is writing a novel about the early years of Jesus. Salute to Anne for taking the risk, but who is she writing this for? I doubt many of her old fans will appreciate it, and from the sounds of it the Christian market won't like it much. Fans of the DaVinci Code might ... oh, yeah -- the movie is coming out soon. AHHH, I get it now. Is that cynical? Probably so, but I am a cynic at heart.
So that's my trip through the blogosphere, randomly visiting pages. Only found two that I haven't read before, interestingly enough. Maybe next time, I'll visit more than five sites and see what happens.
