Well, I have the good ol' insomnia tonight. At first I just kind of enjoyed the comfy bed and silence and then I got bored. So at least it's not for sad or "thinking too hard" reasons that I decided to get up, right?
I figure this is as good a time as any to ask something I've been meaning to ask. I want to put up a link thingie on my sidebar. I know a lot of my friends have blogs and so do some of you who found me through different infant loss groups. But not everyone wants their blog to be easily accessed by strangers. So before I do anything, let me know if you want to exchange links. You can either send an email to sharaze (at) gmail (dot) com or leave a comment with your blog or website address. I do have one request...I'd prefer not to link to anything too explicit. And, I'm not even really talking about language but also photos of children who have passed away...it's just seriously hard for me to look at those types of photos and I've had to click carefully when I visit blogs people link at Faces of Loss or Small Bird Studios.
That being said, I also thought it'd be kind of fun to link to some other sites. After I got out of the hospital, the insomnia was bad. Most of my early posts were written at 2am. I didn't just angst online, though, sometimes I just sat and read funny articles or looked for project ideas. I don't know if any of you are going through that right now (or are just bored, like I am now) but here's some stuff I surf:
Go Fug Yourself
The Hostess Blog...but I have to be careful with this one. I've gotten to where I skip the baby showers and baby birthday parties when they come up in my feed reader.
Hyperbole and a Half which isn't update regularly anymore but the archives are great.
Cracked and the content on this one can be a little crazy so just be selective if you're conservative and stay away completely if you don't like satire or utter foolishness.
D*mn You Autocorrect...okay, this is just awful and I shouldn't even link it because the language is terrible but I cannot tell you how this made me laugh when I was down. I'm a horrible person but now you know. /shame
I can't think of anything else right now other than Wow Insider which would interest maybe, maybe one of you. Are there any other internet time wasters you like to read?
Ah, and I finally gave in and joined Pinterest. I'm still not sure what all the rage is about but I'm sure I will catch on soon enough. So far it just seems like a Kaboodle that caught on better.
