I have done this before.
And I still adore Terra, Maria, Lora, María, and Jenny. For all the same reasons. They are mind boggling in their loveliness.
Here are five more!
Bite the Bedbugs - Tara is both hilarious and tender. She writes eloquently about coparenting with her ex, which is surely tricky, and a topic close to my own heart. And if that's not enough, she also surgically altered her Ken doll so he has a real penis, instead of just a hint. She captures everything I love about funny, smart and genuine.
Temerity Jane - I love TJ because she is enraged by all the same things that enrage me, because seriously PUT YOUR SHOPPING CARTS AWAY PEOPLE IT IS NOT THAT HARD. Bonus! She's eloquent and she's funny, and we seem to have more or less the same taste in The Internet at Large. Since I have impeccable taste, this makes it easy for me to love her. She has two large dogs and a baby gestating in her belly. A cute girl baby, or so I've been told. She's pretty fucking awesome. Go forth.
Jane Devin - Jane Devin is an impossibly lovely. Her writing blows my mind. Seriously. Go read it. Your mind will be thusly blown. Her words are perfect and her stories are piercing. Last year, Gabriel and I had the infinite pleasure of meeting her for dinner in a diner. She is great. Really, truly great. And her words are spun from magic. And she totally named her car after me. Sort of.
The Slack Daily - Nina is smart, funny, and very witty (are you sensing a theme here? You should be). Also she is very pretty, and she used to write for Lizzy McGuire, and although I don't think I've ever said as much, I'm totally a Lizzy McGuire fan. Because that shit was funny.
Mocha Momma - Kelly is one of my heroes. She inspires me, her words are awash in loveliness, and she's just the most beautiful person. When I grow up, I hope to be half the woman that Kelly is. Plus I've totally seen her in her skivvies. Ahem.
