Coffee At Part Time Monster!


My weekend coffee post is at the Monster this week. Diana’s busy offline until mid-week, so I’m filling in over there for the next few days.

Here are a few other posts from around the blogosphere that you might like.

Therefore I Geek and Hannah Givens collaborated this week on an editorial, Does Geek Culture hold the Answers to National Security? The technology discussed in the post is fascinating, and we had a nice discussion about the future of international relations on the comment thread.

Drifting Through My Open Mind has a dynamite post on Time magazine’s suggestion that Feminism should be stricken from the English language, and check out the amazing thread this post generated.

Taylor Grace has an excellent Posts I Liked This Week today. I’ve been a fan of Taylor’s blog for most of a year, and this is the best feature on WordPress I’ve found so far for discovering good blogs. I’ve lost count of the number of bloggers I’ve met by checking out the links in these posts and commenting on the ones I liked. If you are looking to use your blogging as a social activity, you’ll find these posts invaluable.

If you’re interested in our Feminist Friday discussion project, I published the first planning post for next year yesterday, and you are welcome to stop by and give us any feedback you think might be helpful.

Unless something comes up, I’ll see you for #SundayBlogShare on Twitter tomorrow.

Top ten posts for June!

This is such a fabulous idea I have to share. And having read most of them, I must say, there’s tons of good stuff here. Might want to check it out and make sure you didn’t miss any of them.

These are the top ten posts in June according to you!

10. Coming in last is my post announcing changes to Olivia’s Choice page.

9. This one got a lot of attention. It’s about getting editing help from a pro who also happens to be a really, really kind person. Check it out if you’re looking for help.

8. A grumpy me and a bunch of cat pictures, readers loved this one on change. Have I mentioned I don’t like change?

7. This Tuesday Teaser got a whole bunch of attention. I actually really like Sandra Brown. I have a couple of her books to read next. YUM!

6. This one was posted a while ago but interest in it has flared up now. It makes sense. If you blog, you need to know about tags. They’re really important.

5. This is what happens when you know someone called Winter Bayne

Happy Blogiversary to Me, to Me.

Six months ago today, I took my lunch and my laptop to Starbucks and launched Sourcerer. I’d kicked off this blog half an hour earlier. I didn’t trust the scheduled posting – I published every post manually that day, and spent a lot of time between posts watching my stats.

Our page views and visitors that day, on all three blogs, tripled my expectations and convinced me to keep going. I haven’t looked back since. I’m not linking to those first posts here — I’ll do that at Sourcerer later today. Here, today, I’m nominating bloggers for the I Am a Part of the WordPress Family Award.

The rules as I understand them are to nominate 10 bloggers, display this image on your blog, and link back to the person who nominated you. That’s my kind of award, so:


If you don’t do awards, no worries. Think of this as me encouraging people to read and comment on your blog, and just keep being yourself. I’ll continue to read whether you acknowledge the nomination or not. Just know that if you are on this list, I love your blog.
