My blog is only one small facet of me

I also love design blogs, feminist and lactivist blogs, craft blogs, food blogs, stupid-ass entertainment blogs, and a bevvy of other kinds of blogs.

I think on any given day, I waffle between wanting to be just like Martha Stewart, Gloria Steinem, and Michael Chiarello.  Is that weird?  I dunno, maybe, but there you have it.

Here are some of my favorite blogs not listed in my blogroll that really round out my weekly haunts, brain-ticklers, and aspirations:

Oh Happy Day (Design Mom's sister, believe it or not)
Design Mom
Build Blog

The Pioneer Woman

Blue Milk
Salon: Broadsheet
Rebecca Walker

Lactivist Leanings
Best for Babes
Breastfeeding Moms Unite!

What are some of the blogs you visit that no one would guess you love?? 

(And here's a link to an incredible article about the connection between feminism and breastfeeding activism (a.k.a. lactivism).  It's what I believe and have tried to say to everyone who will listen, but I don't think I've come even close to the succinctness or timely relevance this author has.)  

PS: A lot has been going on my neck of the woods (and no, nothing exciting, just extremely hard).  I apologize for the anemic posts, the total lack of participation on your blogs and to your emails, and I really apologize for hunkering down and avoiding all of you and this blog.  There will be a time soon enough when all will become clear and I will be back en force.  Thank you so much for your patience and your support.  You all mean the world to me.  - Jess


  1. Hang in there. Hope you are doing okay.

  2. I haven't taken the time to put links on my blog to the others I like but they could fall under the categories: Moms Who Blog, Mommy Blogs (yes, I see a difference), crafts, DIY, photography, cooking/local foodies, scrapbooking, kids activities, homeschool (many facets to it), decorating, humor, news... that seems like a lot but not all of them at the same time. I probably wouldn't list all of these on the blog associated with this comment, because I like to compartmentalize!
