“Dear Sugar” FTW!

Filed under: Treats — posted by Abby @ 11:19 am

If I may: advice columns, when they’re good, they’re GOOD. And by “good,” I mean not just good, wise, compassionate advice. I mean a good read, even for folks who are not struggling with the same issues as “Lovelorn” or “Confused.” Because at their best — best-written, that is — they are lovely and literate portraits of true, raw suffering and hope: a real-life micro-epistolary novel, a poetic precursor, even, to the talk and reality show. Some, over time, have been necessarily brief (so to speak), but now, thanks to Internet real-estate, they can flow into beautiful long-form, complete with backstory and metaphor and soaring free verse. I say “they,” but in fact, there are but few that fly as high as I describe. All of which is to say: Read Dear Sugar. Maybe start with this one, if it’s cool for you to cry at work. And then the rest. This, ladies and gentlemen, is advice; this, my peeps, is art. Read, weep, leap, cheer.

You’re welcome.


  1. Hey there! Do you know if they make any plugins to safeguard against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked hard on. Any recommendations?

    that service? Thanks!

  16. Hello there! I know this is kind of off topic but I was
    wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
    I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers
    and I’m looking at options for another platform. I
    would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  19. Can I simply say what a relief to uncover someone who actually knows
    what they are talking about over the internet. You definitely understand how to bring an issue to light and make it important.

    More people should check this out and understand this side of your story.

    I was surprised you’re not more popular since you most certainly have the gift.

  23. You actually make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be
    really something which I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complex and extremely broad for me.
    I am looking forward for your next post, I will try to get
    the hang of it!
