Publish a roundup post that links to posts on at least three other blogs, and tell us why you love the posts — and why we should read ‘em.
It’s Saturday for me (Friday for you) and I wanted to break from my weekday mold of depressing the hell out of everyone, and provide you with things I found to make you laugh. I know I always feel better after a good laugh. I wish I laughed more often, but sadly as I get older, I find less and less “stuff” that strikes my funny bone.
I found The Bloggess after I read a wonderful article about her on WordPress.com. I quickly became obsessed with her honest style of writing and found myself laughing more than once while going through her archives. I even found a post called Strange and Beautiful where she talks a little about mental illness.

I hope if you are in the middle of a depressive episode that you find something to laugh at.
