Non-Kid-Lit Blogs

MotherReader tagged us in a meme that originated at A Chair, A Fireplace and a Tea Cozy.

Our mission: Name five non-kid-lit blogs we read.

First, from Mary Lee:

Indexed A blog where the daily post is a picture (or more specifically, a chart, graph, Venn diagram...) that is worth a thousand words.

Tech_Space Daily notes on science and silicon from USA Today blogger Angela Dunn. Fun little tidbits of this and that.

Blog Du Jour From Visual Thesaurus. Collections of blogs on a variety of themes. And I LOVE Visual Thesaurus.

Pragmatic Chaos A peek into the life of a smart and funny nanny. Plus, I like her blog title.

LibraryThing Blog I'm going to buy a barcode reader and get my classroom books into my LibraryThing. Or maybe I should realistically say I'm going to ATTEMPT to get that done. Reading this blog reminds me that I paid for a lifetime membership and I should really be doing more with it!

From Franki:

Pundit Mom
A blog for moms with a lot of politics included. She also writes a bit about adoption.

Suburban Turmoil
A laugh-out-loud blog by Lindsay Ferrier of the Nashville Scene. Great posts about being a mom. My favorite posts are her posts of photos and captions.

Mentor Texts
I love reading about the classroom things happening on this blog.

NCTE Elementary Blog
NCTE has a new blog and the Elementary Section just started one of its own. There are only a few posts so far but people like Shelley Harwayne and Curt Dudley-Marling are writing for this blog. This one is not funny but it does bring up some great issues regarding education.

Brotherhood 2.0
Okay, so this one is connected to Children's Lit, but the two brothers' video blog is one of my favorites. The topics cover everything and they always make me laugh.

We tag HipWriterMama, Liz in Ink, The Blue Rose Girls, and Jen Robinson.


  1. Franki and Mary Lee,

    I think you struck out with me. I only read kidlit blogs. Heavens, I think that's bad enough... considering how much time I spend reading them on a daily basis. I'd never get anything accomplished if I branched out and started reading other kinds of blogs.

  2. Wait a minute! I don't think Bruce Black's Wordswimmer would be considered a kidlit blog--so I stand myself.

    I have to admit to perusing some others. I've posted 'em on my blog. Thanks for the tag -- and for the very, very funny link to Suburban Turmoil. I'm cracking up...

  4. This was a fun one. Thanks for tagging me!

    Thanks for tagging me. I'm a bit slow to see it, because I was away for a few days, but I'll give it some thought, and post tomorrow. Thanks for thinking of me!

  6. I would interested in your thoughts or comments about my review of May Fair and the Ever After if you've read it.

    Also, I'm making a real attempt at a review blog by a kid. It's not some myspace gossip column. I want a career in writing. Love to hear what a couple teachers think about it.
