No, I’m not going anywhere. I cleaned out my blogroll last night and it made me a little melancholy. Some of my favorite blogs have disappeared. Others have faded away to mere shadows of their former selves. It’s sad, really. You read someone’s blog for a few months or a few years and you feel like you know them. Then one day you click on their link and are whisked off to a blank page with an error message. Where are the witty words? Where are the deep thoughts? Where are the naked ladies? Alas, my heart is broken.
So, the blogroll took a serious hit, but all is not lost. I rediscovered a couple of old favorites that have been revamped and recreated. Among my countless bookmarks (because I bookmark anything that looks interesting if I don’t have time to read it immediately), I discovered a few more blogs that I had marked for future reading but forgot about. Oh, it was like a treasure trove of words and images and thoughts and humor! Exciting stuff. (In case you had any doubt, look at the picture below. Yes, I am a strange girl who gets excited by books and words.)
Among the old favorites, there are a few new blogs of interest. A couple of writers, an editor, a philosopher (of sorts) and a real, live dominatrix, among others. I’ll leave to you figure out who is who and what is what, but I recommend them all for entertaining, thoughtful reading. I’m not so sure I can make the same recommendation about my own blog, however. It’s kind of lame these days. I give myself a C+ (the + is because I’m honest about my sucky-ness).
