Cat With a Pen
March 10, 2006

Now, normally I don't do this, but I've recently run across a blog that has me digging through the archives in a way that I haven't since I first discovered WWdN (now WWdN in exile). So, even though I try to keep my little links section over on the right very, very small (too many links and then what's special about any of them? ... besides, it's a hassle to make sure they're all up to date and stuff), I have recently added a new blog I discovered through BlogMad. (BTW, BlogMad is in public beta testing ... you need an invite to get in ... want an invite? drop me a comment!)

Anyhow, Cat With a Pen is one of the best blogs I've seen in a long time. She's got an engaging writing style and wonderful, wonderful, wonderful posts to share. The blog layout is nice and clean ... my only wish is that she'd include a "real" archives link instead of a link to previous posts (down at the bottom of the page). I've got tons of archives to read and comment on yet! One really nice touch that I just love is how often she replies to comments ... and her text is always inside your comment, but indented and in another colour ... really great touch.

Cat lives with multiple personalities due to childhood trauma ... so this site is not for everyone. If you don't "believe in" multiple personalities, don't go bugging her about it, okay? If you've been through childhood trauma, you might find things a bit too reminiscent and triggery ... but overall, I think this is just a delightful, honest and engaging blog. Would that we were all so open and honest with ourselves and others. And hey, what better pen name for someone with multiples ... cats have at least nine lives, right?

Just went to visit Cat. It's great to here bloggers are finding blogs of worth via programs like Blog Mad and Blog Explosion. It's like finding a diamond in the rough, but it can happen.
