My 75 Favorite Blogs – #50 to #26
I love to read. And a huge amount of what I read each day comes from blogs on the internet. I pointed out the richness and methods of reading blogs a couple of days ago (go here to read what I wrote), while also introducing the list of my 75 favorite blogs, beginning with #75 to #51. Out of the roughly 180 blogs I'm "subscribed" to, these 75 are the ones I most look forward to reading each day. So continuing on, here is the next set of my favorites, #50 to #26:
