Dear Very Special Readers,
You probably (may have) noticed that I don’t post quite as much as I used to. It’s not that I don’t love you it’s just that:
- I don’t know if you noticed, but people don’t make very special episodes anymore and I blew threw a lot of them real fast, right out of the gate.
- People don’t blog as much anymore and there just aren’t as many fun conversations in the comments!
- I’m working on a novel. (I know I’m a cliche. Maybe I won’t even finish it. BUT NO I HAVE TO FINISH IT FOR MY OWN PRIDE! Ugh, I don’t want to talk about it, leave me alone!!)
- Some combination of all of the above.
Let me bring you a bit of origin story: I started this blog many years after discovering Kim Hutt’s now defunct What Claudia Wore. (Seriously, check out her archives. It’s good stuff). This was the first blog I read with a tone that I would describe as “celebratory snark.” That’s the vibe I always tried to cultivate over here, and I hope that I was successful. (Gonna pat myself on the back and say that the stats on my old posts tell me that I was.)
Now that I have successfully buried the lead, let me tell you why I’ve gathered you all here today: I may not be posting as much as I used to, but I would like you to meet a couple of blogs that are.
Please meet, Baby-Sitters Club: The Very Last Super Special. Recent highlights include #389: Kristy and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Back and #388: Mary Anne and the FODMAPs. Relatable, ugh.
I would also like to introduce you to The Golden Girls Fashion Corner, which I have to read very sparingly because I almost spent money because of her review of a very cute magnet set that I most definitely do not need. But there are also really thoughtful posts like this one on the “72 Hours” episode and its cultural relevance to the AIDS crisis.
Okay, that’s all for now! See ya around the internet!
