I realized today that I follow my blogroll the way some people follow US Weekly… The way they care about whether Brad and Jen and Angie all get along, I want to know what Kyran‘s boys thought of Mont-Tremblant. I want to know whether Susan conquored the Wii without the help of her 6-year-old. I want to see what Mrs. G does with The Women’s Colony – I just wish I could reserve a room there this weekend!
I guess what I’m trying to say is that I have a great sense of respect for these writers who have defined their spaces a little farther than I have. I love listening in and trying to triangulate what I love about them into my own style. I’m not there yet, by far, but I love checking in when I need inspiration.
By the way, if you haven’t discovered Google Reader, try it, even if you don’t think you need it. Click the little orange subscribe to RSS icon up there to the left, choose Google Reader and add me. Then add Kyran, Susan & Mrs. G. Oh, and Dooce, No Impact Man, Bossy and (just for fun) Dinosaur Comics. Maybe they’re not all for you, but one of them is, I guarantee.
Send me your favorites if I’m missing them!
