My daughter reminded me, today is BlogDay 2007. So as it’s still August 31st somewhere in the world, here are my 5 blog recommendations:
John Cox Art I’ve been reading Cox & Forkum’s editorial cartoons for a couple years now. John’s personal blog is just as insightful and, if possible, more topic. And he doesn’t draw bad either. (Warning: tasteful nudity on site.)
Blogging in Paris Elderblogger Claude talks about everything from soup to nuts and does it wonderfully. Manifique!
The Knitting Curmudgeon Marilyn is as opinionated as they come. I love her to bits (Warning: not for those who blanch at the use of four-letter words.)
Sketches of a Common Life Shirley describes herself as nothing special. I beg to differ.
Days with Frog and Toad Another fellow knitting aficionado and all around crafter, Pamelamama.
Your turn! What are you reading?
That’s my only excuse for not posting. Some days I’m a Cat Herder.
(No, not an EDS employee, but nothing else explains my job better.)
» Simplicity and Start-up Alchemy: An Interview with WordPress Creator, Matt Mullenweg
Oh! I was just cruising my weekend blog reads and stumbled upon this August 21st interview of WP’s Matt Mullenweg by Tim Ferriss of the 4-Hour Work Week (whom I still haven’t decided if I love or loathe; Tim that is, not Matt).
Does Matt really talk like that in person? (stunned silence) Did I miss this being mentioned somewhere in the WP.com forums?
A soldier’s analysis of Hezbollah’s war preps
Now that blogs and blogging are finally on the radar in Israel (two years ago if you’d ask any Israeli, not just government officials, what a “blog” was you’d have been greeted by a blank look), I hope someone on high is reading Charles Levinson’s blog, “Conflict Blotter”. Insightful and pertinent.
We can’t afford any kind of self-deception, especially about Hizbullah. Hassan Nasrallah, unfortunately for us, does what he says and concrete preparations for the upcoming war aren’t being made in the most excellent coffee houses of Beirut. (With apologies to Lisa. Bubbles do exist outside of Tel Aviv.)

My sides are killing me from laughing so much. The “Minnesotan” ones are THE BEST!
Thanks James! I needed that!
