“Are you doing another post?”
I am. I have to provide links to five more bloggers, and I also have to choose the photos, edit them so they’re presentable, and —
“Wow. There’s a lot of work involved.”
Well, yeah, I mean, it’s fun, but it can be time-consuming sometimes.
“I had no idea. Can I help you with it?”
Thank you, Iggy. I’d really appreciate that.
“You’re welcome! Can I put my head on your knee? Just so I can see the screen better.”
“Let me just get settled in, okay?”
Well, that’s certainly helpful of him.
Anyway, here are the next five Very Inspiring Bloggers:
I Miss You When I Blink. Mary Laura Philpott, who actually gets to write for a living; fortunately for us, we get to read her funny blog for free. And there are penguins, so even if you’re a Philistine who doesn’t appreciate good writing when you’re reading it, hey, penguins.
I’ve Become My Parents. Anonymous blogging about parenthood. He doesn’t update too frequently, but he’s hilarious and completely worth the wait. Go. Read.
Musings from 62 Inches Above Sea Level. Aqueelah Muhammad’s “About” description says, among other things, “Sarcasm is my first language…” which tells you right there that she’s cool. She was recently laid off — I’m sorry, “rightsized.” But she’s handling it with a humorous, nerdy style. Humorous, stylish nerdiness? Nerdy, stylish humor? Ah, go read and decide for yourself.
Olaroma. Another fairly new blog, started a couple of months ago by Olga, a Russian woman who’s keeping a blog to improve her English. While there are some grammatical errors, her English isn’t bad at all and her meaning is always clear. I admire her for writing in a relatively unfamiliar language; I’ve tried learning other languages, and I’m a complete failure at it. Oh, did I mention her pictures? Yes, this is another blog showing me an unfamiliar country through the eyes of a native with a real knack for photography. I love this stuff.
JED’s Playhouse. The subheading: “Full of Beer, Sports, and a little fiction.” Want good writing? Sure you do. There it is.
Ten down, five to go.
