My Old Kentucky Homesite

The Atheist Blogroll

Posted by Larry Wallberg on 02/13/2010

I’m not normally a “joiner” because I’m not a “one-of-the-crowd” kind of guy. Mob mentality too often fosters self-righteous stupidity.

But this is just a short note to mention that My Old Kentucky Homesite can now be found on Mojoey’s Atheist Blogroll. Back in December of 2006, I first enrolled in that club about a month after I’d started writing my previous (now defunct) blog. At the time, I became one of fewer than 150 members. Today, thanks to Mojoey’s impressive effort at community-building through his free service, there are nearly 1100 skeptical blogs on the roster. That’s quite an achievement.

Naturally, I don’t necessarily endorse every blog on that list. Some of them are tedious, or poorly written, or just plain dumb. A few of them merely parrot ideas expressed — far better — by others, and a handful even out-and-out plagiarize. But there’s plenty of good reading to be had by meandering through the menu, and, not infrequently, some hearty laughter.

Because it’s important, I think, for all of us atheists to join together in our mutual battles against those who would turn America into a theocracy, I urge all my readers whose blogs touch on freethinking issues to contact Mojoey and add their sites to his list.

    You ol’ community softy, you. What’s next? Reactivation of the Nonbelieving Literati book club? It would take as much effort – Philly still has the link to it up on his blog! ; )

    After the reactivation of the Nonbelieving Literati, will we see a resurrection of Another God Damned Podcast? You may not be a “joiner,” but you look a lot like a “jumpstarter.”

  3. Evo and Chappy:
    I don’t believe in born-again anything. Particularly endeavors that involve work.

  4. I was a devoted listener of AGDP. Now I feel like a stalker, because I am just some anonymous guy to y’all, but I could identify Evo, Chappy, Ex, Si, and OG by voice.

  5. Des:
    I’m glad you enjoyed “Another Goddamned Podcast.” We had fun doing it, but it became a bit too much work, at least for me. While it lasted, though, it was one of those rare activities in which a bunch of disparate atheists were able to cooperate by contributing their different talents toward a joint venture. You forgot to mention Philly, so I’ll give him a shout-out here.

    Remember: Please don’t ask Evo to sing.

  6. I, of course, have a generic voice that’s indistinguishable with most of America so that’s why he didn’t mention me. The rest of you all talk funny and are easily identifiable.

  7. Philly:
    I’d respond to what you said if I were 100% convinced that it was actually you speaking. But it sounded an awful lot like about a hundred other people I know. Does your voice have some kind of digital watermark?

    Evo died and I took the name so don’t bother stalking him.

    Philly says you can stalk him though.
