Apologies if you’ve been trying to access the blog and had trouble. The blog is shortly to undergo a re-design and we have hit a few speed bumps along the way. Thanks for your patience. Stay tuned for RealDelia 2.0, coming soon to a theatre near you!
Every Friday I point you towards some recommended reading around the blogosphere:
1. Here’s a four year-old named Nina explaining the situation in Egypt.
2. Further to the ongoing discussion here and elsewhere about the future of journalism, here’s what The New York Times would look like if it became a content mill at search engine land.
3. While we’re at it, here’s Politico’s prize-winning comic Matt Wuerker’s take on the AOL-Huffpo merger at Fish Bowl DC.
4. Because you just might need it one day, have a look at this list of commonly used words and expressions in Yiddish. (I’ve always wondered how you spell “broche…”)
5. Finally, I really liked this thoughtful post by Nichole Bernier at Beyond The Margins about the effect of technology on fiction writers’ plot devices.
Have a great weekend!
