Blogito, ergo sum

There are so many of us out there. According to Technorati, a new blog is created every second. It is exciting. It is also mindboggling. I am glad that I am a part of this. I have been blogging for eight months now.

The past few weeks I have been actively seeking blogs. All kinds. Personal, literary, technological, mothering, political, humorous, artistic, bratty, or just plain weird. I use Google Reader to keep up with the blogs I am interested in.

I have laughed my ass off reading posts at passiveaggressivenotes.com, mycrazyroommate.com, the "blog" of "unnecesary" quotation marks, lowercase L and El Ñame (my favorite; from Puerto Rico, it is similar to The Onion, but with more bite).

I regularly check out Mr Ciuda y sus ficciones (a boricua teacher/writer in Chicago) and Legión Miope (Paula's dad's blog). Once in a while I also read adfreak and Adrants.

Two of my favorite places to visit are Word Imperfect and Postsecret. I always enjoy the pictures at TLLT and Blue mountains journal.

There are many more. I have not even mentioned the blogs of my mommy board friends, which I check every day, and other personal blogs I have discovered and check out often. I will cover those on a separate post. Right now it is late and I need to put Isabel to bed.




  1. It's amazing and intoxicating and so very addictive, isn't it? Sometimes I feel like keeping up with my G Reader is a full-time job in itself!

  2. mira qué cool... i still don´t know how google reader works, but i will find out soon. p.s. i will add you in my blogroll...

  3. i really like all your posts. i am your number 1 fan. i luv u

  4. Paula, I love you. You are my favorite fan!

  5. The blogging craze may be mind-boggling, but at least it has yet to become mind-blogging. Now that would be a bit too recursive. Now that would be a bit too... Now that would be a bit... Now that would be a... Now that would be...

  6. Duckman, you are too clever for me. I had to go look up the word recursive in order to get your comment. LOL. Maybe I can blame it on not being a native English speaker?

  7. Blogging is great! I love getting to get a glimpse into perfect strangers lives. And giving people a glimpse into mine!

  8. Hehe, I had seen before the blog of unnecessary double quotes (a pet peeve of mine), but I had never seen the one about the lowercase L in signs -- what a strange phenomenon! Thanks for sharing! :-D
