New blogs to read (blogs that are new to me!)

July 1st, 2005 · 1 Comment

This weekend at Gnomedex I officially met the talented Steve Garfield. He described to me how his mom, Thoroughly Modern Millie, one of the Internet’s oldest bloggers, had given a presentation on the power of blogging and sharing stories in her life. It sounded similiar to my talk but coming from the opposite spectrum of life and a different angle. Go see it!

Through DadTalk, I’ve started reading Families & Technology: This is a blog where we talk about technology and its effects on families, individuals and our society. We explore where it’s helpful and when it’s harmful.

Kathe Fraga pointed my attention to Puppets on Parade, documenting our community’s creation of large paper mache aquatic figures for our upcoming parade and celebration on July 4th. The girls and I are hoping to stop by sometime this week and see for ourselves this fabulous fun.

Looking at Beth Freeman’s blog and her Bainbridge blogroll, I discovered islander Victor Cosby’s dreaming of electric sheep.

Soaking Rhet [found again via Technorati “Bainbridge island” feed] is a new anonymous blog. written by Bainbridge of My Existence describing our community through the eyes of someone who recently moved here from California. I find this perspective accurate, funny and refreshing. From Post 3 on the ferry: I ride the ferry twice a day and after just three weeks, I have picked up on a definite culture. Depending on where you sit on the boat, there are ways you do things.

Local and nationally-recognized poet Kelli Russell Agodon linked to physician and poet Peter Pereira . I noticed his poetry when it appeared in the Seattle Times in 2003 and I look forward to reading his blog. Already I like Let’s Try It On the Dog.

Read the blog for One: the Campaign to Make Poverty History to keep up with Live8 news.

My friend Katherine posted that her mother, also a friend of mine, has started Listening Heart at Home: Life unfolding, working, learning, playing, as I discover who I am today. I’ll be listening to the Listening Heart!

    She’s having a lot of fun with it.
