PostSubject: Zander's Blogging Binge   Tue Mar 01, 2011 7:00 pm

So, I'm going have a blog binge. I'll be reading many Slenderblogs nonstop throughout the course of however long it may take. And I ask you all to suggest which I should read immediately. I trust all of your judgment.

Order of what I'll be reading: (Strikes will mean I'm done with them.)

Dreams in Darkness

White Elephants (Early stuff.)
Anomalous Data
Testing 1, 2, 3
A hint of Serendipity
A Really Bad Joke
Road to the Heavens
The Mystic
White Elephants (Recent stuff.)
Walking the Hallowed Halls
Time out of Mind
Hiking Fiend

Now, please help suggest the better ones to read. And for the love of god if you suggest Slendersightings/InvalidLaughtr's blog, I will eviscerate you.

Seeking Truth, of course. Just Another Fool, of courser.
After that, Tutorial if you dare, White Elephants if you can and Anomalous Data.

A very good recent one is Walking the Hallowed Halls, also worthwile: A Very Bad Joke.

I'd like to say that you probably shouldn't start with AHoS, just because you need the background of White Elephants to understand it. Read that one before AHoS.

Dreams in Darkness is required reading, partially because it's really good, and partially because it's it's important to know for The Mystic.

I'd recommend reading in this order:

Just Another Fool
Seeking Truth
Dreams in Darkness
The Tutorial (though this one can be read any time if necessary)
White Elephants up to the point it was deleted (they're cached on the forum, so you can get the early stuff there)
Anomalous Data
Testing 1, 2, 3 (optional)
A hint of Serendipity
A Really Bad Joke (this and AHoS could be read in either order)
Road to the Heavens (optional... it's not necessary, but it's a sage blog and it's short)
The Mystic
White Elephants (everything that's on the blog currently...optional)
Walking the Hallowed Halls
Time out of Mind (can be read at any time, really...even moreso than The Tutorial)

So that's what I'd recommend and the order I'd recommend them in. Like I said, Testing 1, 2, 3, and Road to the Heavens are both optional and the second half of White Elephants has kind of jumped the shark, but it's still probably worth checking out.

For reference: I read JAF, SeekingTruth, InMyHead, and Da Watcha. Half-read StoppingLights & related blogs/vlogs/etc to it.

Here's all the ones that are highlighted/non-informative from Chase's list (which I trust, she really does have good taste Very Happy):

Just Another Fool
Hiking Fiend
Zytherys
A Hint Of Serendipity
Defining?/A Lack Of Lexicon
Dreams In Darkness
H(a)unting
Make It Count
Musical Occurrences
Seeking Truth/The Mystic
The Tutorial
White Elephants
Why Are You Running?

I would say to definitely read those, at least. Others I'd recommend are:

Origin of Simulation
Dare 2 Die

Double post, I know. But this needs a revive. *BLOGGING BINGE FFFFFFFFFFFF-*

Read The Tutorial. His writing style annoys me, but the concept is okay for the most part. Also, when he talks about the hallowed:

"No Slenderlove with out protection, kids.

Wow I just grossed myself out so badly."

M/Slender Man. Totally. But in that same part he says that MH says you can take pills to prevent being hallowed? Wat. Eh. Not bad. Not too good. Just in the middle point for me. Points for the TARDIS mention.

Got lazy and read Andy's coverage of Core Theory. Sounds much less complicated in his forum, but I'll just wait for the novel.

what's the point of calling it a binge, if you're just going to read the cliff notes?

BECAUSE I DON'T LIKE CORE THEORY'S INTERCONNECTEDNESS AND HAVING TO LOOK AT $20 WORTH OF BLOGS JUST TO FIGURE OUT WHAT'S GOING ON.

Honestly, not really interested in Core Theory. Not interested in White Elephants.

I started your blog, but then I was like "Aw, fuck. I need to read White Elephants, A Really Bad Joke, Anomalous Data, Testing, 1 2 3, and Road to the Heavens, Lack of Lexicon, etc."

Of course, White Elephants is on the forum somewhere, but it's 7:14AM, I'm tired, and I need to go take a walk in 15 minutes. I'll get around to them, I'm sure. But I want to read more straightforward shit right now like DiD. Might start up The Mystic because I want to know what the fuck's going on with Zeke.

Also... THIS. IS WHY. WE NEED. A WIKI.

It's lame that I don't read the blogs isn't it.

I wish I had writing skills so I could write a good one though DX

Well, I already got a list. And I dislike TVTropes.

Well, I only read some, but I want to read more so I can be more knowledgeable about things.

Incidentally, Zander, you should also put your opinions in the Slenderblog Vs. Slanderblog thread. That thread could always use a little expansion.
