“Practicing an art, no matter how well or badly, is a way to make your soul grow, for heaven’s sake. Sing in the shower. Dance to the radio. Tell stories. Write a poem to a friend, even a lousy poem. Do it as well as you possibly can. You will get an enormous reward. You will have created something.”

Hats off to Rox for posting this quote on her blog a couple of weeks ago. Sometimes, I feel so uncreative, I don’t even know where to start. I’m surrounded by creative people every day and I marvel at their ability to generate ideas, create beautiful works of art, or make useful objects. Hell, even pick out interesting outfits.

Behold the power of blogs.

I haven’t had a chance to watch it in its entirety, but on Wednesday, Martha Stewart did a whole episode about blogging. All audience members were bloggers, all guest were bloggers. Everyone had a laptop in front of them (which looked pretty dorky and was probably a big plug for Apple) but hopefully enlightened many viewers on the blogging phenomenon. Even Martha has a blog! 

Check out this Martha segment to see the women behind two of my favorite blogs, Smitten Kitchen and Cute Overload:

There are blogs of all kinds out there. Ruined Cakes, Accidents, Things Younger than John McCain… I also have links to other interesting blogs in the column to the right.

Now I’m off to an Obama rally at Peavey Plaza in response to a simultaneous John McCain appearance in Anoka. And I’ll probably blog about it later this weekend!
