Blogs on Blogs on Blogs: Volume II

Even though the recent stretch of warm weather may be inviting us to close our laptops and frolic on the lawn outside Peirce, some of our peers have still been hiding under the covers (or sitting in the back row of their Psych 101 class1) blogging. I know this because I am one of these people2. The upside of this, however, is that I have found more of my internet-savvy compatriots to highlight this week! Follow me after the jump for links and pictures.

Blogs on Blogs on Blogs

Now that we’re all settling back into school, it’s time to stop stalking your high school friends on Facebook and focus on what’s really important — stalking other Kenyonites in the Blogosphere, of course. Today I am proud to present the first installment of our blog on blogs, a weekly feature bringing you some highlights of the interweb exploits of our friends and peers.

That’s right — there are bloggers among us, and not even just here at The Thrill.1 Each week we will showcase a couple of Kenyon blogs² that we think are awesome and that you might enjoy! Click on the links provided below to see more! 

WARNING: I don’t anticipate much NSFW content on any of these blogs, but it is a possibility, so don’t click if you’re somewhere you shouldn’t be viewing stuff like that. Murphy’s Law states that your crush from your 9:40 will be sitting behind you in the library precisely when you open up something inappropriate on the internet and THEY WILL TOTALLY JUDGE YOU.

…moving on.

Our first featured blogger is Charlotte Greene. Her Tumblr is a great place to look for inspiration. Charlotte’s blog is a collection of beautiful photography, paintings, and even videos of tattoo artists. I have no idea where she finds most of the images she posts, but I know I wouldn’t have the patience to sort through all of the sources, so I’m really glad she does it first — I admire Charlotte’s curatorial efforts. Take a look if you like pretty things, or funny things, or interesting things.3

Last week, newsfeeds around Gambier were flooded with photos of Kenyon personalities juxtaposed with zingers in a font that in any other context would look hideous. The links, whether or not you followed them, were provided by the trio of sophomores who run Fuck Yeah Kenyon Memes. We sat down with two of them, Kaylyn Talkington and David Vance (the third is Aaron Dripps), and talked about how the site got started.

Interview after the jump.
