For the past few months I’ve been posting links to fun things I find on my internet travels on the sidebar of my blog in a section called “Goodies from my Google Reader”.  I’ve just been quietly putting interesting little things in there without any fanfare or announcement and I try to update it every few weeks.

But then I got to thinking.  {{Yeah, I try to do that every so often }}

I know there are lots of blogs I enjoy but I simply follow them through email subscription or RSS feed.  Many times I never get over to the actual blog itself.  And I think chances are many of my readers too aren’t even aware of some of these interesting links to other recipes and crafts that I’ve been sharing because they follow by email or RSS.

So at the beginning of each month, I’ll be sending out a post to let you know what new links have been added to the sidebar of my blog in the section that I will now be calling “Favorite Finds”.  I’ll also put the links in the post that goes out, but of course anytime you want to pop back over to The Make Your Own Zone home page, you’ll be able to find them too.
