Blog Appreciation and Exploration Day
It was one year ago today that someone linked to TYWKIWDBI for the first time, so I'm going to use this anniversary to express my appreciation for links and in the process offer visitors a list of blogs to consider visiting.
Ten days ago I invited anyone who has linked to this site (especially those with small blogs) to participate; I visited those sites, confirmed the links* to TYWKIWDBI and the veracity of the descriptions.
Below are 18 blogs, listed in the order of replies received, not in any ranking of merit. I would note, however, that five of these blogs were already ones I visit on a regular basis, and while compiling this list I added two more that I had initially overlooked.
These 18 vary considerably in their content and style; I invite you to browse through them and explore what they have to offer. I think I can guarantee that you will find something of interest.
The Pajama Pundit
A place for varying political ideologies to come together and discuss issues. Character attacks are forbidden, which helps to open up the dialogue. Politics and media are the primary focus, with a little bit of entertainment thrown in as well.
Eyesights in Time
A "slightly to the right of center" daily blog that explores politics, technology, humor, parenting, and the whimsical events that surround our lives. It's a place for intelligent debate, a few laughs, and even the occasional informational tidbit.
Wellington Square Books
Based from an independent bookshop in Lionville, Pennsylvania where we sell used and rare books. We post about publishing news, what we've read recently, and anything else that strikes our fancy as book-lovers.
Zeitgeist in a Petiole
I started the blog with an eye toward showing how net culture and so-called "real life" are intersecting and growing into a new culture whose contours are still taking form. Actually, it's really just stuff I like from the web, and I also throw in the occasional bloviation for good measure.
(no description offered)
The site started out predominantly as a political blog early in the last presidential race (I've been an Obama fan for years now) but has expanded to include art, literature, science, history, religion, technology, pop culture and anything else I find interesting. Part Internets DJ and part pissed off ranting, I do it purely for fun and have no plans to become rich or famous as a result.
Mindbook is a blog about poetry, poetics, and poesis; in it, I am unfolding ideas that have anchored my own long practice as a poet, and exploring the connection between the individual body and the body politic.
I cover conspiracies and comic books. I have posted a rather large collection of comic book images that resonate 9/11, and they were printed prior to 9/11.
Satirical news encompassing technology, business, sports, politics, and other assorted subjects.
A Blog about: Photography, Life and the Occasional UFO...
Almost brand spanking new blog that chronicles the slow but steady journey through the world of showbusiness, theatre specifically. The ins and outs of acting classes, business tidbits, links to resources, artistic insight, and, hopefully, eventual discussions and shared experiences with readers.
Titam et le sirop d'érable (Titam and Maple Syrup)
Titam deals with a lot of things, funny things, graphism, music, and medical history. It's all in French, but many posts don't require you to speak the language.
Artist Survival Skills
A blog for visual thinkers and lovers of the visual arts.
I am a thirty-something woman, bravely embarking on a new career as a(n intern) winemaker. This blog is about wine, winemaking, and eclectic interweb goodness.
The iHandbill was started last September and is "a retired journalist's take on the news."
Offtrack Pages, Paradesi
I blog primarily for Indian Americans, but have stuff which will interest almost everyone.
It's pretty simple, really: I lie. I heap it on, create parallel truths, and try never to reveal anything that resembles reality without creating some laughs in the process.
A repository of things I find interesting, and stuff that is primarily of interest to me, that others may in turn find useful.
