Critical Mass

12/05/2010

In A Strange Land, Latitidue 44 and Musty Moments were the blogs I discussed with Jim Mora on Critical Mass yesterday.

In A Strange Land is on my list of top 20ish blogs. Its author is Deborah, a New Zealander living in Adelaide, who writes from a strong feminist, moderate left perspective on politics and life.

Her posts vary from serious and reasoned consideration of issues to reflections on life, family stories, delicious recipes and lately she’s given us a glimpse of her kitchen alterations.

Jim asked me is she was stroppy like Cactus Kate and Roarprawn. I hope none of them is insulted that I said no.

Deborah wrote a post mentioning Critical Mass yesterday. It includes a selection of past posts which new comers to the blog might enjoy.

Latitude 44 is written by Alex who, after five years working for a software company in San Francisco, is taking some time off to explore the Southern Hemisphere. S/he (I thought Alex was a he but when I re-read the posts realised that was an assumption which may not be correct) is living in Omarama which is one of the world’s best gliding bases.

It’s a newish blog – started in February. Posts so far cover his/her plans, journey to New Zealand, first impressions, an insight into gliding and the latest post is on happiness and the corporate you.

Musty Moments is the work of Ross Horsley who describes himself as a timid librarian by day and a frenzied fan of gory slasher movies by night. It’s an online scrapbook of unusual and amusing snippets he unearths while working at a history library. It also features his comic strip experiment, The Wesleys.  He hasn’t updated that for a while but if you go back a couple of pages you’ll find them.

My plan for my spot on Critical Mass is to discuss both the more popular blogs and also some of the less well known ones.

You’re welcome to suggest blogs for consideration.
