I've been a blog addict for years now. I justify this by the fact that I don't watch TV. No, I mean it. No TV. Why should I watch TV when I have my own soap operas -- real ones -- to read about every day?
Here's a linked list of 15 of my favorite reads. (My bloglines has close to 80.) Some are wildly popular, and for good reason. Some are obscure but incredibly written. And some are my friends.
(And if you're my friend and you have a blog and you're not on this list, hang on, Sister. I'll get to you soon... this is a bit of a random selection.)
I wonder what it says about me that I compulsively read both Shapely Prose and Go Fug Yourself, and that I'm in love with that wacko starlet Bai Ling and with W. Kamau Bell and with Polly at LesbianDad. Maybe it doesn't say anything.
Anyway -- check them out!
