Fast Five Friday: Pay it Forward Blogfest

I came across a fun Blogfest this week, and I though I'd incorporate it into my weekly Fast Five. The Pay it Forward Blogfest is the brainchild of Matthew MacNish and Alex J. Cavanaugh, and here's how it works:

The idea is to introduce everyone to everyone else. We want this to be an easy post that allows you to meet and follow as many other bloggers as you can. In your post, we would like you to please list, describe, and link to three blogs that you enjoy reading, but that you suspect may fly under the radar of a lot of other bloggers. Or they can be famous blogs, as long as they're awesome.

But don't stop there! Certainly visit and follow all the blogs that are featured in people's posts the day of the blogfest, but those don't have to be the only blogs you visit. You can visit everyone who enters in on the fun, and signs up on the linky list. In the interest of time you don't even have to leave a comment. You can just follow, and come back another time. After all, we all know we don't have time to visit every blog we enjoy every single day.

I hope that Matthew and Alex don't mind, but since this is a FFF post, I'm going to give you 5 blogs (and there are plenty more) that I enjoy reading.

1) Munk Davis: Consistently funny and thought-provoking, with great tips on music. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, Munk is simply blogalicious.

2) Suburban Soliloquy: Blogging with a literary flair.

3) Brits in the USA: One of the first blogs I ever followed, and still going strong. An eclectic blog with excellent writing.    

4) Bards and Prophets: There are a lot of blogs that deal with all things writing, but this one stands out for me.

5) SLC Kismet: One of the more unique perspectives I've come across in the blogosphere.

This is a Blog Hop!



  1. LG's great! I'll have to check out your other friends now, as well! Isn't this bloghop fun?!

  2. Hi Tim. I'm here as the co-host from the Pay It Forward blogfest. Thanks so much for signing up.

    And I wasn't following your blog until just now, so the fest is working!

  3. Tim- Thanks so much for paying it forward! I've been blog hopping... and back to say it's a terrific idea. So many great writers and interesting blogs out there. Many I haven't before seen. Civil War Horror--I'm going to have to tell my husband about that one.

    And I just noticed the Big Lebowski poster at your footer. Love it! ;)

  4. Munk and Suburban Soliloquy are two of my favorites. Thanks for the links!

  5. I know a couple of those awesome bloggers! Michael will be one of the hosts for my next book's blog tour. Thanks for participating in the blogfest!

  6. missed the pay it forward blog, so stopping by fashionably late! nice to meet you :)

  7. Thanks for the shout out Mr. Riley. I fell behind on checking in on blogs this weekend. This blogfest that Alex and Matthew organized got too big in my opinion.

  8. Thanks for the mention, Tim. Missed this post somehow. I didn't do the blogfest (the one time I didn't actually sign up for one!)

    Thanks again. Hope you're having a good week. :)
