A Blogroll

Filed under: Blogroll — Adam Gurri @ 11:41 pm

I think it's about time we set up a blogroll.  Here's how I think I'll handle this: everyone gets three links.  One for their own blog, then two of their favorite reads.

My blog: Sophistpundit (

My reads:

Vulgar Morality (

Catallarchy (

Just pop off your links in the comments and I'll go ahead and put'em up once enough people have submitted. 



  1. Only two! You bastard!

    My blog:

    The Argument Clinic (

    My reads:

    The Futurist (

    The Y Files (

  2. Oh, all right, I’ll be first.

    My blog

    Blogs I read that not everybody else on the planet reads:

    Legal Underground

    The Stopped Clock

  3. Are you going to blog here too, Mythago? That would rock.

  5. My most common reads of the not-so-well-known blogs:

    The Wash Park Prophet, who actually gave me my first trackback AND blogroll slot.

    NewMexiKen, a blog of many resources.

    And, of course, Left Off Colfax, my own humble little efforts.

  6. I’m not as active as some of you fellows appear to be with blogging, so my blog reading tends to be for entertainment, not for news and analysis.

    I read, which I find scorchingly funny at times, though in a destructive way.

    My own blog, The Spiral Staircase (which has hardly anything there yet), is at

    I’ll hold my third choice in abeyance.

  7. Wow, Mythago is here! Yay! Adam, if we’re not full up yet, you should invite Mythago to blog here.

    My blog: Alas, a Blog.

    Two other blogs… geez, choosing only two is very difficult. Umn. Let’s say and Molly Saves The Day.

  9. Point of order.

    I just supported Barry’s invitation because I approve of the writer he listed.

    What if it had been someone I thought was terrible?

    Do I have a veto? A voice? The right to cordially go * myself? Does everyone have the same vast/puny power, or is Adam the almighty, local version?

    Anywhere on the spectrum is fine with me; I just like to have things clear up front.

  10. Mythago thirded.

    No blog of my own (at least yet). Hmm, hard to think of two, especially that aren’t known to everyone.

    But here goes:

    No More Mister Nice Blog, a rational-minded (IMO) center-left US blog.

    And (us Finns must stick together, even though he left the sinking ship)
    Sixteen Volts, an anti-leftist, anti-feminist blog, to be read with a grain of salt (that is, I don’t agree with him nearly all the time, but the site has good links, and occasionally he has damn good, cynical writings.)

  11. Bob; I hadn’t really given it much thought, to tell the truth. My feeling has pretty much been find people who I feel won’t be insulting, and invite them–I hadn’t put too much consideration into the negative, that is to say, how to decide when NOT to invite someone 😀 I think I just hadn’t figured I’d get enough people in a given amount of time for it to be an issue.

    Do you have any suggestions?

    Comment by Adam Gurri — April 9, 2006 @ 2:54 pm | Reply

  12. Sure. I should have total power, and no responsibilities.

    Oh, you meant productive suggestions.

    I think everyone should have a voice, but I don’t think that just because (say) Amp hates a particular candidate, that he should automatically get his way. How about if we say that 2/3 of bloggers expressing an opinion have to approve of a new fish? That way nobody has a one-man veto, but if someone brings in David Duke it’s practical to build a coalition of nyet.

    As far as when not to invite someone, I’d say that we don’t want bloggers who can’t treat the rest of us with respect (mutually-funny jokes and kidding aside).
