When I first started this blog, I occasionally shared links to sites that I found entertaining. I stopped doing it because I eventually ran out of websites to recommend.
I’m busy with non Internet-related stuff this week, so I thought today would be the perfect time to revive this old series.
Incidental Comics. This is a hodgepodge of comic strips about all kinds of topics. Most of them are related to writing and books, but sometimes Grant Snider throws serious wild cards out there.
Ethics and Society. There aren’t many blogs out there about ethics that aren’t written from a religious point of view, but this is a great example of how to write such a thing.
The Beautiful Kind. A fascinating blog written by a sex worker. This isn’t for kids or for anyone who is easily offended.
Before Vaccines. People used to die from diseases we don’t think about anymore. Many more people suffered terribly – whether temporarily or permanently – from these diseases. I look forward to the day when there are no more updates needed for this particular site.
Smarter Every Day. This is for kids, adults, and everyone in-between. The content varies from day to day, but expect a lot of science experiments and short, humorous videos from this tumblr.
My Aunt the WAC. Some of you might remember how much I adored A Hundred Years Ago. The author of that blog is back with a new project that is describing the incredible life of her aunt who decided to join the Women’s Army Corp during World War II. Before joining the WAC, Marian Solomon was a middle-aged woman who had spent her entire life on a small, rural farm. What an amazing change that must have been in her life! The story is just getting started, so head on over and check it out.
1111 Comics. This comic strip is surprisingly hard to explain. Expect the unexpected with it. It doesn’t always make me laugh, but when it does I laugh very hard.
