I’m taking a topical detour today to highlight some of the fun blogging (including some science) happening around the May blogathon.
- Jennifer Fink over at Blogging ‘Bout Boys posted about a Minnesota case where a judge has required that a 13-year old boy undergo chemotherapy. Talk about a heart-wrenching case and it’s not clear cut, and Jenny wonders whether the judge got it wrong.
- Over at Polka Dot Suitcase, Kate Reilly gave me a lovely blast back to one of my childhood favorites, Captain Kangaroo. Don’t miss the posts of her trusted featured blogger, Sir Buffalo Sushi. You’ll see more of her soon: she’s gracing Webb of Science with her creative fun for guest post day on May 21.
- Rosie Colombraro at Trust the Universe marvels at springtime and its smells, not lilacs or fresh-cut grass, but asparagus (and that smell that it lends to pee!). I couldn’t help but chuckle.
- At BIKE with Jackie, Jackie Dishner is offering up advice and tools for making fresh starts this month. BIKE is her metaphor for moving forward and getting through tough times (and yes, there are two-wheeled ones, too!).
- Nancy Hall of Floating Ink is fitting art into her everyday life. Recently she’s built wall hangings and painted late-night watercolors. Those I can enjoy from a distance, but I’d love it if she’d send me some ham and biscuits sometime.
It’s hard to believe that we’re nearly two thirds of the way through the May blogging challenge. I’m having a lot more fun with the project than I imagined that I could, both as a writer and as a reader.
