Blogworld Saturday

This is my blog's word cloud.


I'm generally fine with it, but why are words like javascript and box bigger than beer? There really is no justice, sometimes. Many thanks to excellent writer Maryanne Moll for the link!

I have many other things to thank Maryanne for; this fantastic lady fed my morale some uppers recently. Plus, she leads me to some very interesting sites, which I'm all too glad to share with you. Case in point: The Something About Me Reading Challenge. Most of you read books, do you not? If you do, and you think you'd like to write about some of them -- especially the ones that relate to you somehow -- take a look at this site.

A fellow Filipino blogger who's become a good friend writes stuff that I enjoy reading regularly. Houseband00 can be funny or profound -- or both! He loves music; sometimes I learn about songs I've never heard of from him; other times I re-discover songs I'd forgotten. And sometimes he writes posts that are no less powerful for their brevity.

The Dragon is another writer whose blog I visit on a regular basis. His posts, always well-written, are easy to read yet so thought-provoking. A recent post discusses the footprints we all leave in the sands of life, or those we'd like to leave anyway.

Can one host a Mundane Carnival mundanely? I think Mist1 did an admirable job. She just needs to have a backup icemaker next time. This lady is one ongoing laughter legacy.

Superheroes are fantastic. They're the larger-than-life manifestations of our hopes and desires. At the very least, they can provide a good laugh. Just look at the costumes, for crying out loud! Some of my favorite blogworld superheroes are the brainchildren of Ian over at Adventures of the S-Team. I was most pleased, though, at the recent discovery (care of the good nurse) of another kind of superhero: the Crimson Paraplegic. Let it not be said that non-functional legs are obstacles to saving the world!

One of my earliest blog buddies, Justin (who's a medical/business student), is wont to give useful medical information. But he's great at being silly, too. He's one of the reasons I regret not being a beneficiary of US medical care in the future.

That's it for this week's edition of Blogworld Saturday! Have fun everybody. If you see crappy things coming around, do what this now-defunct but once-über-popular Filipino band did: just shake yer head and walk away. And come back when you have a better grip on things.

Maryanne Moll said...

Oo, nga, why is "beer" so small? That only means one thing: You should be writing more about beer! Haha.

And flooble? Whoa, now you've got me beat. :)

Thanks for the plugs, Lizza! Happy Mother's Day to us! :)
