Usually, I post all metal links on Fridays. But since I did that in honor of Valentine’s Day yesterday, I thought we could still have a Free For All today, it would just be of something else.
This Friday, I’m going to give you some weekend reading links to some of my favorite blogs, along with some random pictures of Moggy. Why not?
First and foremost is always my friend, Marla’s, blog: Traveling Marla. She’s a writer, and as you can guess, she spends a fair amount of time traveling. In fact, in about three months, we can start looking forward to her regular missives from South Africa. But whether she’s traveling or not, her daily life is just plain hilarious. Or, I should say, she blogs about it like it is, and that’s hilarious.
I mentioned in a post earlier this week that I’d come across this blog: The Arts and Crafts Bungalow. If you dig on the Arts and Crafts Movement (like I do), this is a great blog to poke around.here, you can get your A&C fix in a prose-style that is down to earth and quite personable, which is always a pleasant surprise, as sometimes these subjects are all too often in dangerous of becoming too pretentious. Not here, though that’s not to call it pedestrian. It’s a great blog. (And you can’t lose with that Morris background wallpaper.)
While I listen to a lot of metal, I also listen to other things, and though some folks might not consider this much of a jump, I dig me some punk rock. Hence, it makes sense that I would like this blog: Punk Rock Homesteading. In addition to its various useful homesteading-related tips and such, it’s also got a healthy amount of politics and activism, primarily regarding food and farming issues, which makes sense, and I support.
Over at A Random Harvest, among other things, there’s a lot of sewing, knitting, and that sort of thing going on. Again, I like blogs that are written in such a way that you can discern the personality of the author. This is one of those blogs. It’s hard for me not to like, and enjoy the writing of, anyone who lists Midnight Oil* and Pete Seeger amongst some of her favorite music
Now, go read. Enjoy. Have a swell weekend.
*I know this is the most obvious example of Midnight Oil, but trust me, when you see Peter Garrett dancing in silhouette…
