My top 40 blogs and a few other things

The bad news: I pinched my finger in the screen door this morning and it bled and it still hurts and ow, and now I have an epic migraine.

The good news: I wrote 3300 words today, woot.

PC Mag's top 100 blogs for 2007. The ones that I read: Smart Bitches Who Love Trashy Books, Post Secret, Lifehacker (sometimes), Go Fug Yourself (obviously), Gawker (well, I keep an eye on headlines from the Gawker-Defamer-Jezebel trifecta), Comics Curmudgeon, AdFreak (hi, David!), Boing Boing, ohnotheydidnt (well, I skim the headlines. The comments will make you beat your head against a wall) and, of course, Cute Overload. Actually, you know what? I'll give you my essential daily reading. Not all the blogs on my RSS reader; just the essentials. I'd say I'm giving away my linkspam secrets, but it's not like y'all can't already tell which blogs I read just from the links themselves. In alphabetical order:

* Does not actually have a feed; I have Watch That Page track it instead.
** Jezebel is my favorite of the three; it's far more feminist. Also, they have Crap Emails from a Dude, which I love.
*** Doesn't have a feed, either. I'd check it a lot more often if they did, even though I know it updates daily. Also, I kind of liked it better when the artwork was more Victorian.


So that's my top 40 (I counted: it just happened to be forty) feeds that are actually on my reader (with a couple of exceptions that I check manually). Google Reader says I actually have 173 feeds total, but that's the cream of the crop, in essence: some writers, some movies, some comics, some gossip. And also some hard news, so I'm not completely ignorant of the world.
