Kristin’s Fav Blogs

STATUS: I’m checking the mirror to see if I’ve gone cross-eyed yet. Lots of reading today.

What’s playing on the iPod right now? I FEEL POSSESSED by Crowded House

I have to admit that it’s the end of a long reading day (I’ve been trying to complete feedback for several client projects in a timely fashion—as in a turnaround time of less than two weeks). Which means it’s 5:30 p.m. here in Denver and I have to blog.

But all I want to do is read some of my favorite blogs.

And then it hit me. Maybe readers of my blog would be interested in the blogs I tend to read daily (or maybe not but I’m going to post it anyway).

Just like y’all, I have my favorite blog watering holes. I might not read them every day but when I do, I try and catch up on all the news. Now my blog favorites are two-fold. There are the blogs I read for “work” and then the ones I read for work (sort of) and because I just enjoy them.

Now it goes without saying that I tune in to my clients’ blogs often so I won’t list them here (because they are tagged on the side bar after all).

So without further ado, here are a few:

Galley Cat
Confessions of An Idiosyncratic Mind
Thompson on Hollywood

Smart Bitches (although they are totally in my dog house for recently trashing one of my authors although it’s yet another great lesson for showing subjectivity in what people like and dislike)

Diana’s Diversions

Evil Editor (who made me snort water out my nose when he parodied me after Miss Snark’s retirement)
Romancing the Blog
Writer Beware
Man In Black
Making Light (off and on for me though)

Okay, now I have to add to the links to each so I’ll stop here…

    I read Romancing the Blog too. However, I take it too personally when a blog trashes a favorite author. I totally axe them off my link list!

    Just FYI, the last four items are all linked to Making Light. ^_^;

    I already read some of these regularly, but I’ll have to check out the others!

    I didn’t know you have a sidebar. I use Firefox browser, and I only see your posts and “About Me” on the sidebar. I also only see one link for the groups of blogs you posted…what I mean is, the first 4 link to Smart Bitches ONLY, and the next 5 to Evil Editor only, and the last 4 all go to Making Light. Now I don’t know if that’s my browser, too, or if that’s for everyone! Oh, dear.

    yep, the last four go to making light, the next five up go to Evil Editor and so on. I also only see the posts and the ‘About Me’ section

    I don’t think it’s Firefox. That’s what I use and I see the lists of clients, agents, Agenting 101, Previous Rants, Archives and everything in between.

    Re the sidebar thing – the individual article pages show only the short version (About and Rants). The full version appears on the front page. At least, that’s what I see here (WinXP, FF2.0).

    pax et bonum

    Maybe you don’t have the latest version of Firefox? That’s all I use and I can see everything just fine.

    Bad… bad agent! That’s all I need… more blogs to read!
