I sometimes use the MT blogroll to find other blogs and fun places on the internet, but if I am looking for non-parenting places and spaces I strike out on my own. These are my most recent discoveries and some long time favorites.

So, there it is in a nutshell. Some of my favorite spots on the web. I used to be a big fan of Jezebel, but lately the new EIC has been taking things in a strange “lady-mag” direction and other stuff that I don’t think a casual reader of the website would mind as much. I TRY and TRY to get into DailyKos and every time I read over there, I learn something. But the pace just feels off to me… maybe that’s it. I used to adore Television Without Pity, but they haven’t been the same since they sold out to NBC. Plus I am not watching as much TV as I used to and they aren’t recapping the few shows I really do watch, aside from Project Runway.
I tweet, so I am on Twitter sometimes. Sometimes I am over there a lot, and then I will go literally months without checking on it at all. How much of a geek am I? You know who I follow? Wil Wheaton, LeVar Burton and Brent Spiner. Bonus geek points if you know why I’d be following those three in particular.
I am always desperate for new blogs, websites, internet tomfoolery and such. I have a magpie-like affinity for new! Shiny! LOOK OVER THERE! So any websites you could point me towards would be heavenly.
What do you look for in a website? More and more I am finding that I need there to be a safe space for feminism, because the internet can be a depressingly misogynistic place. What about you?
I am also considering just dropping out of Facebook altogether, but I need an alternative to it. Some place that isn’t as sketchy, but that I can lure my parents over to, so they can look at pictures of my kids. I need a “safe-book” if you will.
