Haveil Havalim #108: The Get Lost Edition

(Please take a moment to support this blog by checking out our sponsors on the right hand side of this page)

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. This week is the 108th edition of the J-Blogosphere longest running weekly blog roundup. I really wanted to do a Lost theme, because of the numbers, but I just didn’t have the time to think it through. I’m sorry, i guess the #’s reference will have to do for now.

As always thanks to David of Soccer dad. I’m happy to be hosting this fabulous project. Just a reminder, if you’d like to host one, it’s a little bit of hard work, but it’s worth the effort. It’s a great idea for lesser known blogs to welcome people into their “homes” and you will almost certainly find some new blogs in the mix.

I’m sorry I don’t have a snappy theme, but between you and me, those themes can be kind of time consuming, emotionally draining and intimidating. Maybe it’s not so bad that I’m breaking the recent trend. Anyway, for my money, the best way to do these things is by category.
