Go see Shannon. This is an excellent question. Such a sweet sibling story. Alli sounds seriously scary. And messy. I don’t know why I’m telling you about this because it just worsens my chances of winning… But there you go.
… the list could go on and on, but I’m tired of copy-pasting…
This is just a tiny sample of a few well-known bloggers who offer their posts in their full glory to those of us who read blogs in a feed reader like Bloglines or Google Reader. I consider it a great gift from these bloggers to the rest of the community to provide their wonderful writing to us in a way that is so accessible.
But I have to be honest and add one more blog to this post. It has partial feeds and it is the ONLY such blog that I click through to each and every post no matter what: Mir’s Woulda Coulda Shoulda. That’s it. She’s a great writer and I know I will always be happy I clicked over there. She’s funny, smart, and if you’re not reading her, you should be.
Every other blog in my reader which has a partial feed has to be incredibly gripping in its first few words to get me to click through to read it all.
I know, I know, what’s so special about having me read your blog?
Nothing, but remember that I’m likely not alone in my feelings toward partial feeds.
As of this minute, I have 411 blogs that I follow in Google Reader, so you’ll understand why if you have partial feeds and you’re not Mir I’m possibly not reading you regularly.
I don’t say this out of spite or meanness, I’m not directing this at anyone in particular, and I certainly understand that the fear of content-theft and hatred of sploggers is the biggest reason behind partial feeds, but it needs to be an informed decision on your part.
And Mir, please reconsider ;)
Mrs. Flinger had her baby 3 weeks early by emergency c-section — go send your love.
Send Schmutzie your cock. Do it. Now.
“A friend (whose clothing choices I respect) told me about Value Village.”
I love love love this and I totally agree. I read about things like Britney shaving her head and losing her shit, and I just feel sad.
“After lunch I get all dressed up and made up and went out into the world to start the job-hunting process. 2 hours later I returned home…”
Y is workin’ it out.
“There are about a zillion ways to fuck up everyday and I believe we mothers and fathers feel this fear like a Greek chorus in our heads – a lot. And not just the neurotic freaks like me. It comes with the package.” She nails it.
I’ve got the martinis covered!
“I guess I deserved that comment, but OUCH.”
Recalls: Lead and lead in kid’s jewelry. I am exceedingly tired of reporting this. Also recalled: Marinated Herring from IKEA. (How do I type the sound of a cat coughing up a hairball? Anyone have an old Garfield cartoon and can look that up for me?)
I’m afraid I’m gonna need some photographic evidence after the wedding.
Gak, I am so over vaccine shortages. Note this one especially if you have a kid going into kindergarten this year.
“I want them to drive me nuts. I want them underfoot in the kitchen when I’m trying to cook. I want to have to kick a path through the pile of sneakers at the front door.” I want that for you too.
Visit with Mrs. K.
I love Tertia. Please check out the end of her review. All I can say is “Yeah. What you said.” Oh and “Fuck vanilla.”
Excellent! You already know I hate rude people, and this story is GREAT!
