If nobody links to me I am so outta here.

I have a strange urge to go to shoesfullofdust's site now. Hmmm...

Peacay's is fantastic.

I don't know how unknown you're looking for, but languagehat's is great. The combination of language and hats is Dali-like in its dissonance. As they say.

This guy has an interesting blog I was just looking at today.

Oh, also: 35,070 members really puts comments like this in perspective.

huh, Matt was thinking of shutting down the site just a month or so after I was finally able to join.

Weird.

I know what you mean, delmoi. I had already joined but was still getting up the nerve to make my first FPP.

There used to be this guy around here named Max Sparber. I wonder where he went...

I really love serialcomma's snarky blog on fashion magazines, GlossedOver.

Here's a vote for Camp Heatwole. Owned funnily enough, by Heatwole.

That's quite the photo you've got Astro Zombie.

That Heatwole dude teefed my Polaroid link from the blue and didn't via me. Bastard!

That's some fancy fog-out on the Heatwole site.

Not that Web page. This one. Or, I suppose, this one. Or this. Um.

Whoah. Too many irons in the fire.

There are many Astro Zombies.

And guess which one I want to bone.

I've posted a number of member pages that I've found interesting on my member page, but I haven't updated in awhile. Two more that I've found recently are photoslob and gramcracker's site, Over My Med Body!

Astro Zombie is a fish? That explains why he was in my pants.

Vacapinta's blog is very cool.

My old site has been taken over by a spammer, it looks like.
posted by emelenjr at 5:52 AM on April 10, 2006


funny, I found out about mefi via a thread like this... #8242, almost 6 years ago.

My blog is near dead and has been for years, but it's nice to see a thread like this again.
posted by Joseph Gurl at 6:17 AM on April 10, 2006


funny, just went back to that thread 8242 & it's not a thread like this at all. It's a Kottke thread.

I never read it in all these yearn.

Don't miss misteraitch's Giornale Nuovo.

I wish a spammer would take over my site. At least he'd update it more often.

I can't figure out how to look for someone's handle to make sure they're a member.

My site is definitly less well known, probably because I do things that seem inexplicable to 99.9% of metafilterans...

Sweatpants with a worn-out crotch, commando.

Sweatpants? How gauche. Shiny purple iridescent leather Utilikilt. No modesty panel, neither.
