Mike's Blog Round Up
May 30, 2015

The Roundup Roundup...

Here's a nice sampling of some of my favorite Independent Bloggers who do excellent news round-ups, or extraordinary long-form narrative blogging. Plenty of fun for the whole morning.

skippy the bush kangaroo and friends, are well-known for their fine taste in daily news.

Blue Girl Daily is Blue Girl Red State's Daily News sheet.

Avedon Carol's The Sideshow is one of the longest-running blogs on the web. Avedon is a skilled narrator who knows how to tell the full story through links. She's brilliant, and I truly wish my dear friend well.

All Hat No Cattle is a daily read for me. Born of the Bartcop tradition, this long-form blog is always funny and always incisive.

Round up by Monkeyfister (@Monkeyfister1 at Twitter). Send tips to mbru AT crooksandliars DOT com with “For MBRU” in the subject line.
