« Things What Are Making Me Laugh
Last Day of 2009 »
In no particular order here are my favourite new-to-me blogs of the year:
This is not just a blog about the work of women writers of colour, it’s also a non-profit that among many other things runs a library to get books by and about people of colour into the hands of those least able to get hold of books. They welcome book donations. It’s also a truly excellent blog with some of the best coverage of YA online. It really is essentially reading if you care about publishing or YA or reading. Susan also has an excellent personal blog, Black-Eyed Susan.
If you don’t know any of these there’s some wonderful reading in store for you. What were your fave new blogs this year? Oh, and no recommending your own blog. Self praise is no praise, people!

Aw thanks so much for the shoutout! *blushes*
I just started book blogging this year so most blogs were new to me, but some new ones that started in 2009 are Gal Novelty (Ah Yuan is the blogger and she’s so funny and she writes great reviews!). I also really like adventures of cecilia bedalia, your blog (such informative posts that ALWAYS get me thinking) and now the Intern! I just clicked over and her current post had me laughing already, especially about how there are no books about Rastafarians and why is this? Lol. Good point. I then kept reading her other posts and laughing. I’m now a follower! Oh and I love Zetta Elliot’s blog too, Fledgling.
So glad you loved Flygirl. I wish there were more WWII novels about AA soldiers, especially female soldiers. It would have been nice to see Ida Mae get a little more fighting action!

I loooove INTERN. My other favorite blog (which has a similar crazy-view-of-the-publishing-world, except it’s written in first person plural instead of third person) would be the Rejectionist http://www.therejectionist.com/ (sorry I don’t know how to do the link-within-a-comment-thing <.<)

Thank you for the list, it’s really helpful.
I discovered Reading In Color this year as well, not too long ago in fact, and I’m already using one of the lists Miss Attitude put together.
Also discovered a photoblog by an Australian photographer, Jennifer Sando. Her blog is brand new.
I enjoy Elana Johnson’s one… Discovered the Open Book by Lee and Low Books… Stacy Whitman’s Grimoire, and the Intern is one of my faves as well for information, wit and humor.
I need to thank you, because I benefited numerous times from your writing advices.
Happy new year!
