I'm the poster-child for misguided, experimental approaches to reading. I never learned phonics and can't spell worth a damn. Which is why I humbly request that bloggers make their blog names easier to spell. Look at mine. It's three characters. Means nothing, but it is very easy to spell.
Now here are my top ten blogs and blogger names that I can't spell:
2. Echidne of the Snakes
4. Russell's old blog, Waldchen Vom Philosophenweg, and sometimes his new one. It's like he's mad at the world for having a last name with only three characters.
5. Matt Yglesias
8. Crescat Sententia
9. Lawyers, Guns and Money. OK, I can spell all those words, but I can't always remember what three things are in the blog title. Is it "Lawyers, Guns, and Steel" or "Lawyers, Guns and Scones"?
10. The Volokh Conspiracy. Can they buy a vowel?
