Friday Morning Follower's Bloffee

Between KarenG’s labor day BBQ and Talli Roland’s book launch websplash I’ve met so many amazing bloggers in such a short time.  I had almost forgotten how much fun it is to visit others, discover new people and learn about who they are and what they stand for.  As Matt McNash pointed out in his latest posts, following and being followed (as creepy as this sounds) is a part of what makes a successful blogger and also a part of what makes blogging so much fun!

 So I’ve decided to dedicate Fridays to meet’n’greeting.  I’ll be hosting Friday Morning Follower’s Bloffee on Friday mornings.  So far I’ve got the coffee and the cinnamon rolls.  All you need to do is 1. comment,- 2. let me know what you’ve brought to Friday Morning Bloffee (hot chocolate? Hash browns?  Toast? O.J.?).  3. Find someone in the comments who you don’t know, click and check out their blog!  Voila!  A new friend and potential follower connection has been made!

In the meantime I’m going to share a couple of awesome blogs I’ve recently discovered:

Team Un-PubbedI was completely won over by her helpful and spunky personality! Liz just released a self-pubbed book entitled Double Dutch.

Anna Banks- her soon to be released book POSEIDON looks amazing!

Trisha Leaver- Really insightful and thought-provoking posts for writers

Audrey Allure- this fashionista’s photography features some drool worthy items and accessories

Hairnets & HopesThis blog combines two things I can’t live without- writing and food. Yum!

Hanna C. Howard- Because her profile pic looks so open and friendly I always smile when I see it

Trisha Wolfe- You have GOT to see the cover she did for her upcoming release ‘Unveiled’!  It totally blew my mind.

Abby from Something to Write About- great writer’s blog where she offers up unique points for debate and discussion!

Word + Stuff- such a fun and artistic blog!

Gina Dickerson-  I love Gina in her blog header.  She looks like that bad girl you want to be friends with on the playground so nobody will threaten to beat you up.

Jamie Manning- Writer’s Write Right? Because his blogged managed to crack me up in the first ten seconds.

There you have it!  Meet, Greet, and Eat some breakfast with your bloffee!!  Have a great weekend everyone!

I'll have to come back. I think I'm a bit early. I have homemade monkey bread. :)

Miranda Hardy said...

Fun post! I love getting to know other bloggers. I'll bring tea, since I'm not a coffee person. Have a great weekend!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

LOL Laura's such a keener.

I don't know any of these blogs listed. I'll have to check them out.

I don't like tea or coffee, so I'll go with skim milk. It goes better with my oatmeal than Diet Dr. Pepper.

Connie Keller said...

I'm bringing eggs benedict.

Now it's time to check out the blog.

Shelly said...

Very cool idea. I've brought oatmeal. Yeah. I know. I'm a foody-nerd.

salarsenッ said...

Great idea, my creepy girlfriend. :)

I'm thinking virtual raspberry pancakes dripping in gooey fresh-off-the-Maine-tree-tap maple syrup.

C D Meetens said...

What a fantastic idea! I've brought hot chocolate, because I need sweet, warm comfort food... er drink today.

Ron Smith said...

Love, love, love this idea. I'm bringing a crispy baguette and some nice just-churned butter from a little French farmhouse.

Bon apetit!

Mama J said...

Great idea. Mind if I tag along? I'll bring full English breakfast for everyone (but only because it's imaginary ;-) )If you want real food, I can make toast.

Sarah Pearson said...

Brilliant idea. I'll bring chocolate cupcakes, because well...do I need a reason? And could somebody tell me what monkey bread is please?

Off to check out a new blog :-)

Creepy Query Girl said...

lol- you guys are making me hungry! **off to google monkey bread***

B.E. Sanderson said...

I brought sticky buns and English Toffee coffee. =o)

I don't remember what brought me to your blog - if you followed me first or the other way around. I just know I like stopping by in the morning (even if I don't always comment).

Becky Mahoney said...

Good morning, everyone! I brought some of the scrambled eggs I made this morning with pesto, green onions, and havarti cheese with dill. A bit decadent, sure, but decadent is good sometimes, right?

Creepy Query Girl said...

Becky that sounds delicous!

Matthew MacNish said...

I already don't know some of the ones on your list. I'm off to check them out.

What a great idea!

Trisha Wolfe said...

Fun!!! And now my stomach is growling . . . *runs to the kitchen. Comes back with cinnamon buns and milk* Yes, have to drink milk with them. Like, the only time I do ;) Thanks for the mention on the cover! And looking forward to meeting new bloggers =)

mshatch said...

great idea! I'm off to check Jamie out and I'll leave behind some cinnamon raisin toast slathered with butter - one of my favorite snacks :)

Cherie Reich said...

Great idea! I've brought strawberry muffins. :)

Now to check out a new blog.

Charcoal Renderings said...

Waffles with tons of delectable maple syrup, a fantastic breakfast casserole of eggs, fresh peppers and onions, with sausage mixed in, and a big 'ole of chocolate milk.

I am salivating just picturing this. ::immediately leaves work to go find tasty breakfast treats::

Wahoo for new blog friends! I love discovering new people.

elizabethreinhardt said...

Thanks so much for the shout out!! Can't wait to check out some of these blogs! Oh, and I'll bring the Lucky Charms because I'm six years old when it comes to breakfast, and my cooking might actually kill you! Plus that, they're magically delicious!

Jamie Manning said...

Yay, it's my first Bloffee invite! =) Thanks so much for the shout out, and for following my blog!

And I was thinking some warm, powdery, delicious beignets from Cafe Dumond would perfectly compliment an already stellar breakfast. How's that sound?

Bon Appetit!

Hanna C. Howard said...

Well, what a brilliant idea. Cheers!

Since this is imaginary, I'll go ahead and imagine I can cook, and bring over the delicious cherry coffee cake my mother makes every Christmas.

Thanks for the mention, CQG! I have to say, I enjoy this blog immensely, and try to stop here whenever I make it into the blogosphere. Happy eating!

(But now I'm quite hungry...)

Nicole Zoltack said...

How fun!

I'm bringing peanut butter and chocolate chip waffles (my pregnancy craving).

Shannon said...

I love the Friday Morning Follower’s Bloffee idea! I'd bring my ham and spinach quiche. :)

Alright, off to discover some new blogs. Thanks!

Carolyn V said...

What a great idea!!! I'm totally bringing omelets! Mmmm.

Old Kitty said...

Fried egg baps! With brown sauce.
:-)

Take care

Creepy Query Girl said...

Oooh, what are baps?

Jen Daiker said...

What a neat idea! I'm totally down for BLOFFEE! I brought the crepes! Oh and bacon... even if someone else brought bacon there is no such thing as too much!

AND CUPCAKES! :) It's afternoon somewhere!

jabblog said...

Great idea! I don't like coffee but bloffee sounds good:-) I'll bring cucumber and tomato sarnies.

Gina Dickerson said...

What a great idea! I'll sup my green tea and bring some homemade cake! Off to look at some of the other blogs.

Have a great weekend!

~Sia McKye~ said...

I brought you some homemade lemon zest scones, some great dark roast coffee, and a kitten. I'm sure you will want to keep the cute little fluffy silver speck, right? It's only 6 weeks old.

I also brought a blog link for an article I enjoyed this morning. Isis Rushdan has a great post today for writers http://isisrushdan.blogspot.com/

I do check out people I don't know on a regular basis. I've met some good people that way. :-)


Sia McKye's Thoughts...OVER COFFEE

Laura Marcella said...

Awesome idea, Katie! I hope everyone likes chocolate because I'm bringing hot cocoa (it's chilly here this morning!) and chocolate chip pancakes! :)

Elisabeth Hirsch said...

Such a great idea and so much fun :0)

LindyLouMac in Italy said...

A little late calling by but I have been busy partying, yes there was another book launch today. If you have not had an invite do call over to LindyLouMac's Book Reviews to pick your's up. It certainly has been fun this week meeting lots of new bloggers. I always follow back so lots of blog hopping to do this weekend. Also Welcome to News From Italy, I hope you will enjoy sharing our little piece of Italy.

CNHolmberg said...

Ha ha, fun. But do I actually have to make the item? ;) Because otherwise I might just bring cereal.

Tamara Narayan said...

Fantastic idea. I need to explore some new blogs.

Today, my blog is serving a true-life medical emergency and a spine-tingling diet-from-hell.

Shirley Wells said...

What a great idea. As we're talking cyber food, I'll bring a full English breakfast, lots of coffee and chocolate muffins. :)

Have a great weekend!

Holly Ruggiero said...

What a great idea. I'm in. I brought danishes (both cheese and apple).

There are a few new names for me here who to choose! Hum...

Hart Johnson said...

Oh, great idea, Katie! I'm late, but I'll still play. I brought apple soup (my son, at 2, would only eat soup, so to get him to eat pancakes I began stewing apples with brown sugar and cinnamon--the name apple soup stuck--goes on any sweetish bready stuff...

Audrey Allure said...

Great idea! I brought the fruit :) Love eating fruit for breakfast.

Thanks for featuring me; will definitely check out another blog in your comments.

Heather Kelly said...

Love this. Sorry I'm late for breakfast. Can I keep the party going with a sangria? Things might get a little wild up in here. :)

ed pilolla said...

fun. trust me, these celery margaritas i got here are amazing:)

Lindsay N. Currie said...

Oooh, fun idea!!! Love this and "hi" everyone!!!

WritingNut said...

This is an awesome idea!

REINHARDT! said...

Sorry I missed the big breakfast bonanza yesterday. And I made all these sticky buns. I'll be at the next one for sure.

A fantastic idea!

RaShelle Workman said...

Bloffee - a fab word. And a great idea! love it. ;D

Cynthia Lee said...

I love your idea for Friday! I'll be back. You are a lot of fun. I dig your style , girl!

Sandra said...

Always love stumbling upon a completely new blog environment! You're blog is very eyecatching; I'm a sucker for pink!

Beth said...

Sounds like fun! I have some smore bars on my counter right now -- do those count?
Looking forward to checking out those new blogs.

Michael Di Gesu said...

What a great concept... I love it. Sorry I missed this Friday, but I will definitely drop by next week/// Thanks for hosting Katie.
