- Five non-white men.
- Five women of any color.
- Any three of them must be non-Americans
I made a list of every link I've used, sliced it and diced it a bit, sorted by frequency, and I've discovered that:
- The sites I link to the most by far are IMDb, Wikipedia, and Amazon (i.e., links for reference).
- The first individual on the list is Talking Points Memo at spot number six (linked ten times).
- The first individual woman in the list is Michelle Malkin at spot ten (five links).
Anyway, finding five women in my link history is easy. I could have named them off the top of my head.
- Does This Look Infected? I started reading for her banter posts, but I enjoy the other oddball stuff too.
- Raging Red says she's quitting, but I'm hoping it's an April Fool's prank.
- Abigail's Magic Garden provides some liberal commentary to chew on.
- Body and Soul had a fantastic post about Eason Jordan.
- I'm shocked to discover I haven't actually linked to JeSurgisLac, so I'll fix that right now. She talks about America from the UK.
- Barack Obama's blog is the official blog of our non-white Illinois Senator who I linked to in a post about an ideal President, if that tells you anything.
- Adam Yoshida is Canadian, and I linked to him after the election.
- Geomblog had some nice election maps I linked to.
- MFDH is a white male Canadian, so he doesn't quite follow the rule. Also, I've never linked to him before, but I've been reading him for eons.
- Chrenkoff is from Australia, and I linked to him here.
- I broke Halley's rules once (by including a white male).
- I broke my own rules twice (by including people I hadn't actually linked to before).
- I'm late; the challenge asked for this in March.
- I had to struggle to find non-white men, but finding non-Americans was easier.
- While I would have liked a real analysis of my (copious) linking, I'm just too lazy.
From looking, I can't tell if I link to women more or men more. What I can tell, clearly, is that it's not a total shut-out for anyone in Halley's list. I'm pretty pleased about that.
