All right minions, I need you to do my bidding!
I’ve been on this kind of blog research kick thingy lately. I’ve been trying to spread my seed (not in a biblical way), connect with people, find new blogs, find new interesting people to interact with. Not that you guys aren’t interesting, but ya’ know the more the merrier.
So, I’m looking around and… I can’t find much. :(
Oh I’m sure it’s out there, I just haven’t found it.
In my interwebz travels I have seen a whole lot of “inspirational” blogs. You know the kind that post pics of waterfalls and sunsets, and everything brings an epiphany. That’s nice and all but I’m not that serious. I have my deep side but I don’t want to dwell in it too long, you get consumed. No offense to your rainbows and shiz. Namaste.
Then there are a whole lot of “subject” blogs. A lot of stuff that doesn’t pertain to me. Computer tech blogs, home remodeling blogs, food blogs, bike riding blogs, fitness blogs, CEO blogs, pet owner blogs, refrigerator repairman blogs, etc. The only 2 “subjects” that I check out once in a while are writing and marketing. But there is only so much of that I can take. Not to be all like “the world revolves around me” but if I’m not interested in the subject why do I want to read it? Well sometimes I just open stuff up to see what’s there and how good (or bad) the writing is, but I’m not subscribing. How many of you men out there have a subscription to “Scrapbooking Monthly”? I rest my case.
Then there are the blogs that I am most over… Mommy Blogs. Again, no offense (which totally means I WILL inevitably offend someone) but there are 8 million Mommy Blogs. They all basically say the same thing, “My kids are a handful, but are the cutest in the world, and I’m so cute with my wearing pajamas all day or going to work with spitup on my dress”. I TOTALLY get that! That WAS me… about 12 years ago. I did the little kid thing, mostly by myself and I don’t need to relive being totally out of milk and food and having to pack up 3 kids under the age of 6 (2 of which were having meltdowns) to make an otherwise 5 minute trip to the store because their Father took off. I’m getting an anxiety attack just thinking about it. Seriously, like I just got a rash…
I mean I don’t mind parenting blogs, after all I’m still a parent. Mine just happen to be 19, 16, and 14 now. I’m on to things like sexting, sports injuries, drinking and sex at college, drinking and sex in high school, proper use of Instagram’s Insta-Chat, internships, college applications, walking the fine line between adult and kid, and when is it ok for your over 18 kid to swear in front of you when you curse like a sailor? It’s just a different place, that’s all.
So, what I’m asking is… please send me the funny. Really, please recommend funny blogs to me. And not to be a putz but some of the supposed “really funny” blogs out there are just… not funny. To me. I like clever wit. Really smart stuff. The Bloggess is ok but I don’t know, the lazy underachieving Mom thing has been done to death. (even though I do it a little, but I temper it with overachieving kids, heh) My friend Renee’ Schuls-Jacobson is a chuckle when she’s not being emo or inspirational. heh heh xo girl! Also, I adore my kindred spirit MG , with a blog name like Smartassery how can I not love?
If I’ve forgotten any of you, please forgive me. But I beg you, please point me towards some funny blogs. Like funny smart, slightly weird blogs. I love quirky, campy. Oh, I love me some drag queens! If you know any of them, show me. And if you have a blog of your own, feel free to share. Please provide links below in the comments! Thanks!
