December Blog A Day , game , gaming , reviews
I Eat Games is a game review site — not just any games, but downloadable or cheap games. The kind of games you don’t have to shell out the big bucks for. The kind of games that are still fun to play. That smiley face over there to the left? That’s the highest rating you can get from I Eat Games.
And so, inspired by the I Eat Games rating system, we’re going to borrow it for today’s post and give this site an “extremely happy” face rating. Why?
- The about page is well written and interesting. It’s easy to figure out who writes the blog because she tells you: she’s a college girl at the University of Evansville. Other pages tell you what she’s going to do on the blog and how to get in touch with her. Why don’t more bloggers do this kind of thing?
- Her site has a light touch. It’s easy to read, and it leaves you wanting to read more.
- Interesting links. I don’t know about you, but links to good, free downloadable games make me happy.
- It’s a growing site — just few days ago she announced that she’s going to start reviewing board games every once in a while. It was fun seeing a little bit of expansion in focus.
Another wonderful December Blog!

Zero Two Hero came up this morning when we were tag surfing. (Tag surfing, in case you’re wondering is one of the new features on your dashboard.) The first thing we saw on this site was a link to a ton of downloadable classic comics. Very cool.
There’s a lot to Zero Two Hero. Technology, music — and he reads a lot. Zero Two Hero is one very busy guy! We like the looks of this one.
(Why is it a Best Blog? It’s consistently updated. He’s committed: he’s been blogging since December 2005. And he has a voice — that ineffable thing that just means he sounds like a real, unique person. Not somebody else, not a clone of somebody else, just himself.)
Mirkwood’s a lit blog with a bit of a twist. The author is smart and eloquent about books. But Mirkwood can also tell you a little something about how to use CSS and the new Sandbox theme to make your site look really spiffy. How about that?
In case you love to read and you’re wondering about lit blogs: WordPress is home to many great lit blogs. If this interests you, here are a few links, just on WordPress alone: Tales From the Reading Room, Charlotte’s Web, Make Tea Not War, Eoin Purcell’s Blog, Everything in Between, Distraction No. 99, Great War Fiction, QAZSE, Quirk, Ruth’s Reflections, So You Think I Can, Words of My Father.
This just scratches the surface — if you write a lit blog, or follow them, or have some opinion about them, use the comments section for what it’s for: tell us about lit blogs.
A Fool and His Words Are Soon Parted
Tim, the author of A Fool and His Words Are Soon Parted, isn’t foolish. Like most court jesters, he just tells it like he sees it. Turns out, he has wise and interesting things to say about technology, parenting, books, and, my favorite, career limiting moments (CLMs).
(Saturday morning blogroll found Tim while scrolling through tags for “vacation.” Turns out, there’s a lot more to Tim than just that.)
