Feb 2009 Back A' Cha

Yet another effort to thank those who link over to me. I always forget someone, no, maybe a few, so if that's you, please let me know if you want to be added to the list.

Rather than be snarky, we're using your own words to describe your blogs, for the most part.

Except for Retriever. This is one crazy post on teaching Sunday school. Not the Sunday school I remember, that's for sure. And another about being laid off, way back when, before it was fashionable.

Pink Hollyhock is always looking at the alternatives.

White Trash Academic :
White Trash Academic
Virginia, United States
Subversive punk from white trash 'hood glancing up the ivory tower and asking, "Is this all I get for years of schooling and student loan debt?"

Subversive is such a great word.

Try Digital Doorway, who hosts Change of Shift, a nursing blog. This is how digital describes himself: A digital venue for creative expression, nursing adventures, reflections on healthcare, thoughtful reverie, thoughtless repose, and other flotsam and jetsam. See, everyone's a poet.

Midwife with a Knife (sounds so scary) has been in San Diego for a conference. Did you ever stop to think: What if all conferences were in San Diego or Hawaii, maybe?
I didn't think so. And what do they call a guy who is a midwife?
Here's how she defines herself: The life and times of a young old-fashioned obstetrician. This isn't a medical blog, per se, but more about me and my life (which, admittedly, are mostly medical), but if you need medical advice, please see an actual doctor in person. Any resemblence of anything in this blog to actual patients is entirely coincidental.

It always is, has to be. posted a video on sex and science, it doesn't get much better. Mary Roach wrote a book about sex research: Bonk: The Curious Coupling of Science and Sex.
So Healthbot is gutsy.

Esser Agaroth is Hebrew for two cents, maybe My Two Cents would be the English equivalent.

The Social Work Blog Prep Test
isn't really a test. The tag line is: Help getting through the social work exam prep gauntlet. Whatever it takes, people. You won't get nearly enough of that here.

My pal, Ilana Davita is showing off photography on her blog, always worth the trip.

And NEVER FORGET The Second Road! I completely forgot to tell you about my last couple of posts over there, too, which is really ashame, because they weren't half bad!

One on the FOURTH STEP, in particular, but we're going to be going over that stuff, soon, so you should know something about it.

Leora over there at HP is a multi-media artist, also a rewarding visit.

Crackers and Juice is all about recovery from child abuse, simply maddening.

And The New Social Worker Online Blogmakes some of us old ones a little nostalgic for just the word, new. The New Social Worker is the quarterly magazine for social work students and recent graduates, focusing on social work careers for those new to the profession. This blog is a companion to the free online magazine at

A Mother In Israel, news from around the Jewish blogosphere (but you know, you don't have to be Jewish, just mho.)

Ways to Survive Life, no pretenses, says what it is.

Expanding Life blogs on family matters.

My friend at Mori Therapy, making life better, making better lives, has a great tag line, don't you think? She posted on eating disorders, mentioned my theory on naps.

And Author Mom with Dogs is getting scraps awards. How cool is this?

Magen writes random thoughts about random things, which is a great use of a blogger's keyboard, if you ask me.

Whereas Nashbabe has random but deliberate ruminations, and isn't feeling so good, so stop by and cheer her up.

A true super brain, Neuroanthropology makes me feel a little light, but that's good, isn't it? Expand the brain over there.

Therapy Worksheets gives you a little something for the money: Psychotherapy worksheets of all kinds--depression, anxiety, anger management, stress reduction, self-esteem, groups, individuals, couples, adults, teens, children, CBT, DBT, ACT, PTSD, OCD, BPD...and more. It's amazing, check it out.

Literature Should Mean Something in Your Life is precisely that. Things and people are disappearing. Go find them.

My friend Syd, at I'm just F.I.N.E.-- is all about recovery in Al-Anon:
Telling what it's like to work on recovering from the affects of alcoholism

And Angela is STILL The Amazing Adventure.

Isle Dance, The Rebbetzin's Husband, and again, if I forgot you, please write and let me know.

Until next time,

That's it for now!

Thanks for the link. I always enjoy these Back Acha's, because I get to meet some new people I wouldn't otherwise visit.

So pardon me while I go explore...

Pink Hollyhock said...

I enjoy your linkbacks, too, although I spend too much time checking them out. "Everyone Needs Therapy" is on my bloglist permanently. If you wanted to wave across the Internet at Pink Hollyhock, it wouldn't hurt my feelings. Take care, Therapydoc.

Thanks for the link. I also blog about unschooling, literature. and a bit of history -- but then, that's all in the family, too. : ) Thanks again!

Lisa Marie said...

Wow. Such great sources of so many different subject matters!

Take care!

Retriever said...

Thanks so much for the link. We do have fun in our class, and it probably is kind of wild and crazy compared to what we all grew up with.....full of life and love, tho.

peace and God bless

Meansomething said...

Thank you for the linkback and for your comment, too! I am humming and counting a lot these days.

Thanks for the call out.

It reminds me I need to check in more often with those bloggers such as yourself I appreciate.
