New Series: Sunday Link Encyclopedia and Self-Promotion

I got the idea for this series from zunguzungu who publishes a collection of links to great posts every Sunday and from Feministe that allows people to self-promote on this day. In this series, I will publish a post every Sunday that will contain links to the posts from my blogroll that I enjoyed the most during the week. These are not the same articles I linked to during the week. These are the ones I would have liked to comment on if only I had time.

Readers should feel free to leave links to their own (or somebody else’s) posts written during the week in question that they believe were especially great. It doesn’t make sense to link to an entire blog because that never works. So please, just the specific posts you really liked this week.

This is what I’ve been reading:

Is blogging in decline? Read a post and do a survey.  I don’t think it is in decline or likely to be any time soon, which I let the people conducting the survey know as clearly as possible.

  1. Hi there my dear friend,

    I feel funny posting this comment unrelated to the post above, but I remember you mentioned that is the easiest way to get in touch, so I figured, I will give it a try 🙂
    I am trying to find an e-reader for my parents that they can use for reading both in English and Russian. I know you really like you Kindle, so I was wondering if you tried reading any free Russian books on it, and how it works if at all, the downloading process, format compatibility, and so on.. My friends in Europe told me about a really cool site with lots of Russian books, but they use LBook as an e-reader. Unfortunately, it does not look like LBook is sold in US ( turns out it is produced by a Ukrainian e-reader manufacturer, how cool is that ?), and out of those available here, Kindle seems to have the best reviews..


    1. Oh, I’m so glad to see you comment! This is, indeed, the easiest way. 🙂

      Unfortunately, the Kindle doesn’t recognize Russian characters yet. 😦 If only it did, I’d immediately give Kindles to my parents. But for now, if you want to read in Russian, Kindle is not an option. 😦 I hope they take care of this soon.


  2. This is a brilliant idea, Clarissa, and I don’t say that merely because you have the good taste to like my writing 🙂

    I’ve been so out of blogging for some time now that I desperately need a new reading-list, and I see this new addition to your blog providing me with lots of stuff to read. So yay.


  3. Invisible Illness Challenge 23 — I blame the uncreative title on the fact that the inspiration came from Tumblr. But it’s a post about my frustrations with what I like to call “have you tried” syndrome (aka, folks who may not know about one’s condition but who sure do like to give advice anyway).
