I don’t know if it’s due to the challenges of creating content for 30 consecutive days or simply a desire to mix things up a little, but lately I’ve been seeing posts crop up here and there in which bloggers share lists of their favorite things. And while I let plenty of blogging bandwagons pass right by me–and I’m not NaBloPoMo’ing this year–I think I’ll jump on this one.
Every now and then I’ve wanted to blog about some product I’ve tried but haven’t wanted to build an entire post around it, and I think an occasional “favorite things” list could be a way to handle that. It may become a recurring feature, or not. We’ll see whether making the list itself becomes a favorite thing.
A Few Favorite Things That Aren’t Books: Fall 2011 Edition
Extra Hot Great is a pop-culture discussion (mostly TV and movies) from a few of the folks who originally brought you Television Without Pity (if you once knew Dave and Tara as Glark and Wing Chun, then you remember TWoP before it went corporate). They produce a weekly hour-length show and mini-casts (5 minutes or so) several days a week. (Thanks to Mike for originally pointing me to this one!)
“Hot” makes me think of …
Honeycrisp Apples. OK, that wasn’t the best segue; they’re best eaten cold or at room temperature rather than hot, and I’m not sure they’d bake very well, but Honeycrisps are the tastiest apples I’ve ever tried and one of the best things about autumn. They’re only available in stores for a few months, so I’m getting my fix while I can!
