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.)

books , language
is a german word and means “Learning German and Studying in Germany” in english. As the title already tells, this blog provides an absolute guide to learning the german language. It has a huge collection of sources to help you progress quick. Listen to one of their recommended german radio or browse their collection of listening tips. But if you are thinking of studying in Germany then you must have a look at this page.
Unfortunately, there could be a small problem, the blog is written in German;-) So you might need some german knowledge or use a website translator like http://babelfish.altavista.com.
Drop by and watch the trees changes in the year. Or browse the book reviews.
