The Links

To the right, you see a list of sites called "Good Reads," and they are, in fact, good reads -- blogs I enjoy reading regularly. But, unless you visit them yourselves, you'll have no idea of what you're missing. From now on, I'll give you a summary of any new links I create. For now, here's a rundown of the links I follow:

  • GopherDog and Can You See the Sunset from the Southside are two blogs done by the same person. GopherDog is very short, and it appears to be new. Basically it offers some advice on creating a blog and how to attract readers to your blog. CYSTS is a blog about music -- indie music. Every day a band is highlighted, and Eric posts a few tunes by that band for your listening pleasure. I've found it's a great way to stay aware of new bands, to keep up with older bands, or to maintain an awareness of indie music.
  • Dr. Diaries is a blog based upon the happenings of my family. It all began when we had our first daughter, and the tradition continues as we keep our readers (family, really) updated on the girls, what we do, and possibly a video clip or two.
  • Everything's Jake is a blog written by a former professor of mine: John Guzlowski. He actually writes two blogs, the other being, Lightning and Ashes, which chronicles much of his writing and publishing. Jake, on the other hand, is a blog that covers a variety of topics, including his writing. Most recently, John published an interview that Spoon River Poetry Review had done of him regarding his writing and publishing.
  • Orange Crate Art is a blog written by another English professor: Michael Leddy. I have never taken a course with him, but I suspect that I would have enjoyed it based upon what I have read in his blog. He writes on a variety of topics, including numerous "How To" entries, technological topics, his life, organizational strategies, musical musings, as well as literature. Additionally, the blog offers a variety of interesting links to check out as well.
  • -30- is written by a good friend, and former roommate of mine, Tony Scott. Tony writes frequently on music, politics, and occurrences from his life. Always entertaining, this blog offers interesting topics, a great sense of humor, and links to various blogs and music websites. From time to time, Tony also offers MP3 links to bands he talks about. As Tony is a good friend, we often show up in the comments section of each other's blog -- and kid each other about who is blogging more!
What do you read? There are millions of blogs out there - point me in the direction of some good ones.
