“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.

    It’s pretty price enough for me. In my view, if all site owners and bloggers
    made just right content material as you did, the internet shall be a lot more helpful
    than ever before.

    page layout of your blog? Its very well written; I love
    what youve got to say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
    so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having one or two images.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

  43. Hey this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting
    to know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding know-how so I wanted to
    get advice from someone with experience.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she
    can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has
    83 views. I know this is totally off topic
    but I had to share it with someone!
