Weblogs or blogs can be found at every twist and turn as you surf the internet. Blogs offer an easy mode for people to express their opinions on any topic on a regular basis. Some are professional, some are a hobby. Some are controversial. Some are masterpieces. Some are advertising. Many have long been forgotten. All have one purpose -- connecting with a community.
Check out a few of my favourite size-friendly blogs. You'll probably see another ongoing theme. Some I visit often others are occasionally. Do I expect you to love them all? No, but I'm sure you'll find at least one you'll want to visit again.

The Pretty Pear It use to be Girly Blog for Fat and Fabulous Women. Colleen bought a new domain name that is easy to read and pretty to look at. She shares her views on books, fashion and life in general. Some of the posts just happen to be about weight issues. Here's one of my favourite posts - That's a Compliment? It's a little slow at the moment but check out the archives for her interesting dialogue.
