Blogroll Amnesty Day

with 6 comments

bad2-1Wow!! You guys sure didn’t make it easy for me.  I know that no other blog could possibly compare with mine, but I expected at least a smattering of mentions.  There must be some other blogs you read if only to laugh at them and compare them to mine.   With that in mind, I decided to make a real effort to find the other blogs out there that were small and worthy of a greater audience.  Doing so, I ran into a huge problem and that was it is much easier to find big blogs than small blogs.  I don’t think Talking Points Memo really needs more help finding an audience from me.  Anyway, here are 5 blogs that aren’t on my blog roll and deserve to be seen by more people.  I still would appreciate if anybody can mention any small blogs that I should be checking out if only to crush potential competitors in a hostile takeover.

1. Jenny Sais Quois – Subtitled a quarter life in crisis, she’s 27 and this isn’t one of those angst ridden diaries of a 20 something which I have little patience for outside of the movie Lost in Translation.  The blog hasn’t been updated frequently, but I enjoyed a couple of her posts quite a bit.

2. My Empire of Dirt – I first found this blog over Summer when he was blogging about my favorite topic–me.  He has a substantial blog about Canadian and even American politics. It really has grown a lot since I found it over summer.

3. My Apologies – If my blog is consuming most of your reading time, this blog’s entries are short and sweet even if they tend to be liberal and terribly misguided.  It is a great source for pictures of conservatives though.

4. Just an Earthbound Misfit – OK, I think this blog may be bigger than mine.  The author is certainly more prolific, but I enjoyed it quite a bit and wanted to include them because I don’t think they’re mammoth or anything.

5. Zen Yenta 2.0 – This woman has been a presence on the web for awhile now, but she’s back with a new blog.  She was the first person to discover this blog and for that I will always be grateful.  Her support kept me going when I thought I was the only person reading it.  She’s also a witty and articulate blogger and a person of exceptional taste.

Please check out these other blogs.  I will be adding them all to my blog roll sometime this week.   I hope everybody had a wonderful Blogroll Amnesty Day.

  4. I’m blushing. Approval from people on the internet means more to me than is healthy:)

  5. My goal is to update the actual blogroll before the links roll off my front page. Hopefully, it’ll be up tonight 🙂
