Long, long ago, I decided that I would post links to particularly internet writing on Saturday mornings, as sort of a replacement for Saturday morning cartoons.
I have now realized that everyone who is not watching Saturday morning cartoons on Saturday mornings is already taking part in their replacement for this activity. It’s called sleeping in, for the lucky ones. It’s called parenting for the rest of us. (p.s. to my son, 5:00 is not the new 7:00!)
The Saturday morning links had also started to feel stale. I was going to the same blogs, over and over. By now, you’re either reading them, or you don’t care. Either way, I was burned out.
Then I realized that Monday is the day of the week when y’all actually need links. Even for those of us who work at home, Monday is the start of a new week. Time to get energized, time to be inspired. Time to read some good writing! From new blogs! Luckily, I got a job reading blogs, so I found a bunch of new ones!
Welcome to Monday Morning Good Writing.

My, how times have changed. Again, god forbid I ever date again.
Bread belongs in its own styrofoam bread-sized carrying case. If you’ve ever bought groceries, you will see truth in this.
