Final analysis: I’m old too.
This makes me so.freaking.happy. (If you don’t read Julia, when she says ’13’ she’s referring to pregnancy number 13. She has one child so far and is now pregnant with twins after, well, lots more than I have space for here. Go read her blog.) Did I mention I’m happy? For someone I’ve never met and doesn’t have any idea who I am? That’s how compelling her story is.
Um… Tick tock!
Go tell Shannon she’s got a hot ass.
And I suspect that Kevin needs a hug.
Dillinger? Seriously? I want to poke myself in the eye with a fork.
… 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 ;)
Hey. Have you checked out my new blog yet? Now is a great time to stop by because I’m giving stuff away!
The “My Label Maker is broken this week” shirts are ready!
Snort, now that’s a party I’d attend.
Oh fuck, Zoot. I know how that goes and I’m hating it along with you.
And more crap news for Julia. This sucks ass.
Seriously, who links to Dooce anymore? I do! Because she’s fucking funny, that’s why!
Yay, more drama…
You know I love newborn pictures, and these are awesome.
I’m on vacation right now, so I thought I’d leave you with some pointers for other blogs to check out. Today’s theme is that bitch Infertility.
Karen’s The Naked Ovary is a great blog about adoption after infertility.
Beth at Prop Your Hips Afterwards is currently pregnant after infertility. She also has very severe Hyperemesis to add into the mix. Her strength in the face of long hospitalizations for rehydration is impressive.
I’ve only recently started reading Getting pregnant the high-tech way but she and I have a lot in common.
Of course you all read Julia, right?
