Fresh links on the roll

Time for another update regarding the links in the enormous linkpile at right on the page. First up is Hello Kitty Hell — where you can find the story of that Hello Kitty military patch at left — which I’ve filed under Brand Blogs (Anti).(Thanks to Byron for the tip on this.) (On a related note, Coudal points to a video of a news report about Hello Kitty maternity ward in Taiwan.) (Oh, and of course I have some thoughts on Hello Kitty in Buying In.)

Next: Peter Kafka’s MediaMemo goes in the Various Other Friends category.

The main thing to note is that I’ve finally added a category for Handmade 2.0/DIYism. Here are the sites & blogs I’ve put there to start it off: Jenny Hart’s Sublime Stitching blog; Jennifer Perkins’ Naughty Secretary Club blog; Tina Sparkle’s First Sample blog; Craftzine, Craft Magazine’s blog; Cyberoptix Tie Lab’s t0ybreaker blog; Inside A Black Apple; Crafty Bastards blog; poppytalk (which maybe should go under Design/etc., but I like it better here); Scrap Smack; Diary of A Crafty Chica; Greenjeans blog; AshleyG’s Kitty Genius blog; a bardis (Christy Petterson) blog; and Etsy’s blog, The Storque.

I was at first going to explain all these but, I don’t know, just look around this site, most of these are connected to things I’ve written about or otherwise mentioned in Buying In, The Times Magazine, this site, or all of the above. I’ll be adding to that new section in the weeks ahead, but that’s a start.

UPDATE: Late-breaking link. I knew I was forgetting something important: I’ve justed added a link to Faythe Levine’s Handmade Nation blog. I was reminded by this interview of Levine by Jennifer Perkins, on Perkins’ site. Worth checking out.

Further diversion may be found at MKTG Tumblr, and the Consumed Facebook page.
