I've added two new blogs to the informal blogroll on the right. "Searching for a Unifying Theme" is run by Adrian, friend for 30 years (and counting). I'd love to tell you what his blog is really about, but since he's still SEARCHING for a unifying theme, I'm afraid to speculate lest it gel prematurely.
For literature and liberal education see "Apocaloopsis," helmed by Ambrose Mensch (who should be familiar to you if you're following the Barthathon).
Finally, check out "That Day in May" by...hey, her name isn't advertised! So let me just say she's an excellent photographer, a great writer, a lover of all furry beasties, and signed up for NaBloPoMo. Shiver!
