Brief Blog Semi-Break/ Shameless Self- Promotion Opportunity

Hi, all. I’m taking an unscheduled break from the blog for a few days. I’m dealing with some health issues: nothing to worry about, nothing life- threatening or anything like that, but I’m in a fair amount of discomfort and my energy and attention span are both very low. I should be okay in a couple/few days; for now, though, I just don’t have it in me.

So talk amongst yourselves! Take this as an opportunity for shameless self-promotion. If you have a blog, or a cause or something you’d like to promote, plug it. Purely commercial plugs for businesses are discouraged, but if you’re an artist/ musician/ event promoter or something like that and want to tell us about what you’re doing, please do. If you’re a blogger, please tell us about your blog: either link to a specific post you’re proud of, or just tell us about your blog in general. And if you’re simply a blog fancier/ general gadabout and want to plug someone else’s post or project that you think is neat, please do that too. Thanks, and I’ll see you soon!

    Well, okay, I have the obligatory personal blog, but with a misleading name: sexyredheadednuns.org
    It’s not yet the season, but I love to celebrate a non-religious Xmas (and found Greta’s blog via an Xmas-themed podcast (Feast of Fools?), so I have a site for it: secularxmas.org
    If you like old computers, you can indulge in such voyeurism at the Obsolete Computer Museum, which hasn’t been updated in years and is now more like the Obsolete Obsolete Computer Museum: obsoletecomputermuseum.org

    (I shoulda also said “Feel better soon!”)

    Self-promotion? I’ll give you self-promotion.
    I make cute jewelry that you can find at: http://www.magdalune.etsy.com
    My most recent series are my Swarm series (honey-colored items) and Summer Highlights series (which celebrate summer and last only a season).

    Hope you feel better soon — and are back in usual fighting form!

    Happy healing to you, Greta. I’ll take this opportunity just to let you know I’m reading :)

    How can I resist the opportunity to promote Science Gossip at sciencegossip.info? It’s a site which links to blog articles covering science news, a science metablog if you will.

    GWS Greta. Hope it aint bacon flu!
    Shamelessness in 3,2 …
    I have a band I’d love to plug.
    _From The Ashes_ can be found here: myspace.com/ashesthefrom, as well as on last.fm as “From The Ashes (Melbourne)”. Australian indie rock at it’s finest (if I do say so, which I do – hey, a muso without ego is nothing).
    Also, at Dangerousintersection.org, there’s usually a healthy amount of philosophical discourse going on. And occasional fundy-bashing.

    Get well soon! *sends chicken soup*
    Lately I’ve been obsessing over The Daily Asker ( http://thedailyasker.blogspot.com ). She’s experimenting with the idea that “women don’t ask” by asking for something every day and posting about what happens and what she ends up getting. And, um, I have a blog that I really need to update. ( http://nadiacooke.wordpress.com ) I think I’m going to write about The Atheist’s Bible once I’ve finished reading it…

    I hope you’re feeling better soon!
    For my shameless self-promotion, I’d like to mention my post on that insipid LA Times op-ed about “whining” atheists:
    There’s plenty more liberal irreverence, general geekery, and miscellaneous snarkiness if you’d like to stop by…

    Pretty pictures from the Big Island of Hawaii and more (not all the usual touristy stuff) at: http://www.LitBoy.com.
    Feel better, Greta.

    I hope you feel better soon. There has been a bout of atheist flu going around. At least I’ve been sneezing lately and am an atheist.

    I usually use this to promote my music….
    So I will again. Every week at chaotimusic.com I release a free song.
    I’ve been doing this for 95 weeks.
    This weeks song is called “Thank the Lord”
    Its about prayer, and loaded with references to western elitism, religious hypocrisy and theological contradictions.
    Just like most of my songs.
    But what do you expect of a former preacher….

    Hope you feel better, Greta! I’m mostly a lurker, but also a novelist-blogger, so here’s some self-promtion: a blog post here -
    - that might interest the readership of this fine blog. It’s an analysis of how ‘demonic possession’ is portrayed in movies, how the belief in demonic possession causes harm in the real world, and why we ought to think about that if we’re going to portray it… You can link to it by clicking on my name below.

    Yay!!! Shameless self-promotion.
    For those of you in or near the Chicago area I am in an improvised rock band called Reset List. We do concerts of entirely improvised music based on audience suggestions. Everything is improvised from the chord progressions to the lyrics, harmonies,sax solos, and dance breaks.
    We have a run of shows coming up in July at the Viaduct Theatre.
    Check us out at http://www.resetlist.com or http://www.viaducttheatre.com

    Hope you feel better soon Greta!
    For those that are interested, I’ve recently started writing about my experiences in prostitution (I’m a whore!)
    Please check out my blog at http://prostituee.wordpress.com/

    This lurker who sometimes posts hopes you feel better soon, Greta.
    Thanks for all the great links, everyone. I’m checking them out.

    An opportunity to shamelessly self-promote on one of the best writer’s blog; how could I resist?
    Check out http://cyberlizard.com for an eclectic variety ranging from atheism to Lego to geek culture.
    Thanks, Greta, for the opportunity and I hope you feel better quickly.

    I hope you feel better soon, Greta! I’ve been going back through your older posts, and I really enjoy your writing, especially what you’ve written about religion. The first of your posts I read was the one about Atheists and Anger (which a blogger on Xanga linked to) and I immediately became a fan of your blog. Since then, I’ve visited your site regularly. More than anything, your posts make me think.
    I have a Xanga:
    I wrote a post about Professor Richard Dawkins’s “The God Delusion.”
    I also write fanfiction. (I only mention it, because I write about same-sex pairings and because you wrote that wonderful post comparing religion to fanfiction.)
    Thanks for writing your great blog, Greta, and I hope you feel better soon.
    (Thanks to everyone for the links.)
