From the Draft Bin: Moving Mom


It’s amazing to me how much writing I do that gets thrown out, abandoned, forgotten or taken out back with a shovel and buried. I have written volumes will never, ever see the light of day or be stored anywhere on a computer. These are the cathartic writings, the nonsensical, the mopey drunk poetry, the …

Read ALL the FTB Blogs!


Some of you read Biodork because you’re my friends and family, and you read me uncaring of the fact that I’m on a larger, atheist blog network. This post is not for you. I’m writing this for those of you who want to read blogs that are about atheism or which are written from an …

Take Care, Jen.

It was with a combination of rage and helplessness that I read Jen McCreight’s post about how she’s taking a prolonged break from blogging. There was some sadness too, but above all else was anger and disgust. Well, and there was a good bit of relief that she’s taking time to care for herself.

Two and a half years.


I’ve been blogging since the end of 2009. I’m a baby blogger by some internet standards, but I have so many friends who have announced that they are STARTING BLOGS! only to quit after the first week or two. I’m proud of myself for sticking with it; keeping up a (pretty much) steady blogging schedule …

Blogging as Activism – Harassment Policies

For those people who think that blogging is narcissistic, self-centered prattling, that we’re yelling into a void, that we’re just whining and not working to make real change, Stephanie Zvan is here to prove that blogging can be activism and can lead to change of the best kind.

Judgmental Animals


My friend Beaver Hayes and I have started a new website. We went to the Henry Doorly Zoo in Omaha, Nebraska last weekend and took a ton of photos. We couldn’t help but notice a certain…disdain on the faces of most of the animals. At first we thought we were imagining it – you know…anthropomorphism …

Welcome Taslima Nasrin to Freethought Blogs

When I began exploring atheism, I did so from a place of privilege. I live in a country where my right to not believe in a religion is guaranteed. I have lived in larger, progressive cities for much of my life, areas that have their share of religious diversity, and as such have developed a laissez …

Bristol Palin is Blogging

At Patheos. Incidentally, this is the same place that Hemant Mehta writes his Friendly Atheist blog. Patheos is an interfaith blog network which bears the tag line “Balanced Views of Religion and Spirituality”. They have a large contingent of Christian writers, so it’s not like Bristol will be out of place there. I just wonder …
