While there's nothing like the first blush of new love, the first rush of new blogging comes darn close. Two buddies of mine have started online journals in recent weeks, and each is worth a look.

The first one belongs to my pal John Popa. I met this dude at a comic book convention about a year and a half ago, and we hit it off instantly. It's frightening how many interests we share: comics, musical theater, loud Hawaiian shirts, beautiful women in sweaters... if it weren't for hair color and wildly divergent choices of favorite band, people would be hard-pressed to tell us apart.

Jody LaFerriere's blog is the other new kid on the block, but don't let that deceive you. She's had a Web presence since 1995, which in my book easily qualifies her as an Internet pioneer. Her Big Dumptruck page is still going strong with updates roughly every six to eight weeks, but I'm enjoying the hell out of the less structured, more stream-of-consciousness observations in her blog.

I would be remiss if I didn't note two things Jody has of which I'm openly covetous: status as a full-fledged TopFive contributor (as opposed to my once-a-month subscriber privileges) and her wonderful, adorable son, Mookie.

Give these two good folks a read. Just remember to come back here when you're done.
