This week is the first week of Dewey’s Weekly Geeks – she is still looking for someone to make a button if any of you are good with that kind of thing.
The challenge this week is: Discover New Blogs Week
- Look through the list of blogs for the participants of Weekly Geeks; find five that are new to you. If you can’t, find as many new blogs as possible and then some you don’t read super regularly.
- Visit those new blogs and leave a comment.
- By Friday (May 2nd) write a post in your blog featuring those new blogs you visited.
- Go back to the post about this week, and leave a link to your blog post.
I discovered that a lot of my blogging friends are doing this fun weekly event! But, I also found some new blogs which I’ve now added to my Google Reader (oh dear!).
Adventures in Reading has some great literary and art links … and this blogger knows how to write an interesting article. I will definitely be visiting again.
Amateur de Livre’s Weblog is a well designed, fun blog to browse. I discovered a meme, of sorts, which lists the top 106 books most marked ‘unread’ on Library Thing. I think I’ll have to do this one!
Everyday Reads (lightheaded takes on books and comic, lovely or otherwise!) is mostly dedicated to reading, and the design and conversational tone drew me right in.
Kay’s Bookshelf appealed to me immediately. She’s a software developer and it shows on her well organized blog. I love the way Kay lists her authors down the left side of the page with links to her reviews.
The Curvature is: “A feminist perspective on politics and culture.” I was immediately intrigued. I don’t consider myself a rabid feminist, but I have a rabid interest in women’s issues. I was raised to be a strong woman, and so the idea of asserting myself is well ingrained! I also am watching the American political scene very closely. Could America actually elect a woman as President? I hope so, but I’ve learned not to be overly optimistic when it comes to things like this. Anyway, The Curvature, is a cutting edge blog – one that doesn’t mince words. I like it.
