I'm sure I'm not alone, but I love Pinterest. I have found so many creative ideas for kids play stuff, DIY around the home and recipes. It's made me a craftier mom and a more daring chef.

I have been enjoying Parenting - with crappy pictures. It is a funny mommy blog with the pictures done in Paint.

I swear by fetchbooks.info and allrecipes.com ... other than that I am a facebook junkie. Most of my friends are on it so we set up all kinds of get togethers on it instead of calling each other every time, and we post pics of our kids but each other too. And since lost of them are Christians we also can drop posts for prayer, I get them from Tanzania and Mongolia even, it is great!

Foodgawker looks fun! I love sites about food. I have been using the Foodspotter app on my iPhone as of late.

I don't really have blogs that I read regularly, I'm just a Google junkie. I Google EVERYTHING. I am also obsessed with LinkedIn because I like to see what everyone is doing professionally, and keep an eye on the job market too.

I spend a lot of time looking at my own site for work (A&E), checking traffic, checking to make sure things aren't broken, etc. Lame but whatever, it's my trade-off for leaving before 5:30 every day.

Pinterest is my new favorite. I have learned so much! Today I made edible roses for a cake out of marshmallows, food coloring, and powdered sugar. I am also learning about gardening in small spaces.

I also visit Facebook and several Homeschool blogs.

You mean pg.org doesn't count???

I honestly don't have time to frequent anything other than pg.org, msnbc, and once in a while fb. I tried to follow a local mom blog but I just didn't have time.

I'll have to check out some of the ones you ladies have listed though.

I go on msn games like everyday at lunch for my daily dose of Patchworkz. I'm on level 302 and I think my score is almost 17,000,000:)

I've been reading this a lot lately

http://www.stfuparentsblog.com

I can say that after 5 years on here and about 2 or 3 on facebook I thought I was the only one awed at the amount of TTC/pregnancy TMI and Mommy-topping sanctimommy insanity that goes on......but this site drove home that I'm not the only one who feels that way.

I know this is an old GTKY thread but i remember seeing it and thinking "ooh,i want to post on that one" and never did.

I found a new one not too long ago that I think i will really like and will become a staple:

I have a lot of blog type sites that I enjoy checking in on once in a while to see what they are cooking, making or what pretty pictures they are posting! I am a sucker for pretty photography.

Melissa, i loved reading stfuparents for a while, but every once in a while she gets a little carried away and makes a big deal out of something that doesn't seem so big. I still love reading it though. My favorite are the mommy-jacking threads.
