My Top Three are….Um, Give Me a Minute…

Today’s Daily Prompt:

Press it – Give some love to three blog posts you’ve read and loved in the past week, and tell us why they’re worth reading.

My first thought was, “Only three?”

I follow a decent number of blogs, which means that I’ve read a lot of posts this week.  I assumed that I would have to spend a lot of time picking through all of my favorites just to narrow it down to three standouts.

I set about making my list…and I blanked.

I know that I hit the Like button for more than a few posts this week.  I know that I LOLed at least a couple of times.  So why could I not recall even a single post that I felt was worthy of such an honor?

To those who are more familiar with WordPress than I am: Is there a way to track what posts you’ve liked or commented on?  If not, it would be a VERY nice addition.

Then I got to wondering: Do I follow too many blogs?  Have I gotten to the point where I read so many blog entries that they all blend together into one giant bloggy mess?

Or does my memory just suck?

Eventually, after doing a little bit of searching, I was able to recall three posts that I greatly enjoyed:

1. Mom on the Range – Panic! in the Bathroom – A fable about parenting and technology in the modern age.

2. Close Families – The Thoughts of a New Runner – An inspirational tale of perseverance.

3. My Gay Mom – The Dangers of Sleeping Naked – One of the funniest blog posts I’ve read in a while.

For anyone who wrote something good that I overlooked, I apologize.  If I ever get another chance to honor standout blog posts, I’ll try to take notes!

    There is an option in your Reader on the right that says “My activity”.
    I believe that covers everything you have commented on and liked.
    Someone correct me if I’m wrong because I’m fairly new to WordPress to.

    Aww, thank you so much for honoring my post. I would have a very hard time narrowing this down too!! 🙂

  4. I should have waited to read The Dangers of Sleeping Naked until I was at home or at least not at work. Hilarious.

    You describe my exact feelings when i read the Post and now I’ve been reminded of the Activity button I shall go and have a look. Yes, there are so many good blogs and so little time to read as many as you’d like to.
