Let's Panic

The site that inspired the book!

At LET'S PANIC ABOUT BABIES, Eden Kennedy and I share our hard-won wisdom and tell you exactly what to think and feel and do, whether you're about to have a baby or already did and don't know what to do with it. →

Because maybe we need more junk.

“The elements of blogging, as far as I'm concerned, are already junk. Our lives, our entire world, form a heap of trivia and disaster. To some degree we're stuck in the tragic position of Klee's "Angelus Novus", unable to reach back and mend the catastrophe of history. What we do have is memory and language, which, along with a high-speed connection, is all you need to reshape it, hold it up for your readers, plunge your hand in and rip out the joke.”

Just as I was questioning this ridiculous exercise, along comes the Palinode to clear things up. Why aren’t you reading him right now?

I have a small, manageable group of blogs I read every week. I don’t venture beyond my tiny corner of the Internet nearly enough. You probably need to branch out, too. (Yes, you do. Stop looking at me like that.) So if you’ve been reading any new and/or noteworthy blogs, post them here.

I love She takes stunning photographs and has a genuine positive attitude and creative spirit--very refreshing in the blogosphere.

Badger of Badger Meets World is the funniest mommy blogger in the world--and she's totally unknown, hip, Indie and cool.

Start reading her now and you'll be able to impress your friends with how long you've been reading her after she gets all famous and shit.

Really. I read Miss Doxie and The Palinode and Schmutzie and Susie Sunshine and Jen Lancaster and they all deserve their fans, even if I'm one of them, but you have to read Badger.

Oh goodness.Brand new to me is Miss Doxie. I started out with one blog three or four years ago. One day, she linked to Dooce. The rest follows. For me, all the blogs I read are somehow related to each other. In a Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon kind of way.

I read about 15 blogs daily. I'm adding more every once in a while.

Ages ago (it seems) I posted a (now-outdated) list on my blog (ooh ooh, go read it too!) with a VERY few of my "newer" links.

I dont' know how to do fancy linky things in here so..... yeah.

Occasionally, as much needed mental excercise for my (mostly) stay at home mom mind, I write a short thing or two. I just began writing and have been reading many, well okay, like, 3 mom-ish blogs a day for about 2 years. Sometimes I read 'Go Fug Yourself', which makes me howl and cry. It's that hilarious.

Anyway: This American Wife @ Blogspot

Gosh, I am totally heart broken that my 6 regular readers didn't comment and mention me, but if anyone reads this far down in the comments and is looking for some new blogs, I will tell you one thing about me that I look for in ither blogs that I read: I WRITE ALMOST EVERY DAY, so if you're looking to expnad check me out. That being said, I think that Out of Character is hilarious.

I have to add two more:

Rob at always has entertaining science projects that he performs and explains in interesting detail.
October 24, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterShauna
I have been reading All or Nothing for quite a while.

She's pretty freaking entertaining, if not a little crazed. But in an awesome way.
October 24, 2006 | Unregistered Commenternate
I am utterly addicted to

She doesn't update that often anymore, BUT her archives are good for weeks of reading-when-you-should-be-writing.

Look, if your not reading The 13th Apostol, your missing out. I'm just sayin. I'm really very funny damnit. Really, and smart too, so it's not all stupid's smart funny. I don't talk about poop, boobs or politics. I talk about bowel movements, mammary glands and poop.

  • Mine is new this year. Not particularly funny, but thought provoking... I like it!!

    Also check out Buffy Holt at:

    Her fiction is fantastic!

    oh, i've got to second that Underwear Drawer recommendation. HIGH-larity. and you've already got Schmutzie linkied, who is a beautiful writer, so i already feel a little less like the world doesn't (air quotes) get (air quotes) me. A little.

    I also recommend Miss Doxie. Her main page is empty, but you can get a taste of the goodness with her "dogs" category.

    Did anyone mention Bad News Hughes?

    Or Pamie, Tomato Nation, or any of the Damn Hell Ass Kings crowd?

    I can't believe I haven't seen MIMI SMARTYPANTS on this list. I anticipate her every entry and am never disappointed. Check her out at She had a new entry today that was priceless, and I quote:

    "I just read a Christopher Hitchens quote where he said that the four most overrated things are champagne, lobster, anal sex, and picnics. Although I am not a huge fan of the Hitch, I liked that sentiment very much. I would like to organize a picnic where everyone eats lobster and drinks champagne and butt-fucks the other guests and yawns mightily with the utter dreariness of it all. More champagne, my dear? More backdoor action? Oh dahling I couldn't possibly. This whole scene is so last year."

    She's phenomenal.

    It is the Amazing Adventures of Overshare, the bloggers co-worker is an oversharer and the blog is true things she's said and done. The archives will have you bent double laughing.

    I also really like Amalah's new blog thing

    Strangely, while looking around various blogs - venturing out from my own secret corner of the internet - I stumbled upon your blog.

    You made it straight onto the list of blogs I read regularly... this evening has ben enlightening - there are people out here who can write!

    I search Technorati with random words a lot. I've found a couple in my blogroll that way. I have a goal to read three new blogs a week - it means I don't always get to my blogroll, but I'm sure they forgive me.

    Delurking to wholeheartedly recommend Confessions of a Pioneer Woman. It is simply delicious and will make you wet your pants daily.

    I have to second (or third) the Nothing But Bonfires recommendation. She is so funny and cool and pretty that it makes me stomp off in a jealous fit every time I read it. In a good way, of course.
    October 24, 2006 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

    Guess I'll throw the link up, since I just realized the first two didn't. You can thank me later.
