[links] Follow Friday: Blogs You Should Read  
I keep reading Follow Friday posts on Saturday and meaning to write one up for the next Friday, but then I never do. And I noticed again today that a lot of the people on my reading list also read each other, because I keep seeing the same links posted all over, but not everyone is reading the same people I am, I know. So I thought, for Follow Friday, I'd link to the blogs I read which have links and posts that make me think, make me mad, make me sad, etc. Topics cover all sorts of things, including racism, sexism, sizeism, ableism, homophobia, transphobia, politics, etc.

These are in alphabetical order based on the first user name I knew. Where I knew a second user name off the top of my head, I included it as well. If I have a name wrong, or if you don't want the two names linked, please let me know. I think I only linked ones that are obviously linked, but I could be wrong. Also, I tried to only list names where a significant portion of links and analysis are posted publicly.

These are a few of the many blogs I read and recommend to you.

AngryBlackBitch (I don't know how to make the little feed tag, like the user names, so instead for the ones I read on a feed, I'm linking straight to the site. Also, I started reading ABB when I left Missouri, to keep up on Missouri politics before I returned, but there is so much more than that here. In case you don't care about Missouri politics.)

There you go, a number of blogs I think you should read.

ETA: Mom was just telling me about the variety shows she used to watch when tv was a new thing and she remembers Elvis in the beginning. My parents have seen so much in their lives.

*is flattered to be included on this list*

(I also really like this idea. I often feel so much of my flist is clearly reading the same parts of the Internet, and then someone mentions having just come across something I thought was Common Knowledge and I feel like, "Oh yeah, I should signalboost even when I feel like it's really redundant.")

Yeah, I run into this a lot. In offline life, too, actually; I pretty much assume everyone I know knows each other and that's really not true.
