Welcome to the January 31, 2010 edition of Everything Worth Reading. A quick plea to Blog Carnival: can we please find a way to crack down on the spammers? Seriously, I had 83 submissions, and half were spammers. Ugh! In the words of that old lady in the Monty Python skit, I don't like spam! For all you non-spammers, thanks for a great bunch of posts.
Sweepy Jean presents What Men Can Get Away With That Women Can?t posted at Sweepy Jean Explores the (Webby) World, saying, "Although everything I wrote is true, this is meant to be satirical!"
That's the definition of satire, no?
Howling Duck Ranch presents Searching for that 1% posted at Howling Duck Ranch, saying, "20+ months ago I quit my job with a goal of learning to provide all my own food. This is the story of my first successful moose hunt!"
POST OF THE MONTH
conditional cognition presents Feeling the Breeze: Dreadless posted at conditional cognition, saying, "After nine years of growing dreadlocks, I’m back to where I started: bald. This post recounts some of my experiences as a dread, from DC to the OC."
Jim Murdoch presents Reimagining the wedge posted at The Truth About Lies, saying, "Do women write female poetry? Could you pick up a piece of writing and tell the gender of the author? Is it important? Should it make a difference? As long as marketing exists books will always be targeted and the most obvious demographic split is between males and females. So are we ever going to get to a point where it doesn’t matter? If the gender divide something that will always exist can we find a way to stop thinking about it as a bad thing?"
karen alonge presents postcards from nowhere: You say "Narcissist" like it's a bad thing! posted at postcards from nowhere.
Steve Chasey presents South Bank of the Thames posted at S&S Travel the Long Way Round, saying, "My wife and I are gearing up for a 6-month round the world trip. We just got back from the UK where we had a chance to practice our travel blogging chops!"
Steven and Debra presents The END TIMES Hoax: Airline Passenger Profiling: Why Not Do It Yourself (DIY)? posted at The END TIMES Hoax, saying, "Would you get on a plane with this guy?"
Peta Jinnath Andersen presents Book Love and the Kindle – A Match Made in Purgatory? posted at *Insert Literary Blog Name Here*, saying, "With the proliferation of e-readers such as the Kindle, book borrowing may soon go the way of cheap, non-Starbuckian coffee. Borrowing books is an important part of the zeitgeist. And while borrowing a book from a library or swapping one online may be a simple matter, borrowing a book from a friend is an essential process. Libraries and book swaps are impersonal. But borrowing from a friend? There’s an element of recommendation, a shared love of books and genres and particular authors."
