Christian McLaughlin, author of Sex Toys of the Gods and creator of MTV's Spyder Games, has a personal site awash with bizarre stories of celebrity encounters and a childhood of trashy Jackie Collins novels. Don't miss the "Unauthorized Shit List" section of http://www.christian-mclaughlin.com, where McLaughlin trashes the mean teachers that terrorized his formative years.
If the dishyness of McLaughlin's site is too much, visit http://www.geocities.com/distractiongir/, a low-key look at the tumultuous inner workings of an 18-year-old lesbian named Valerie. Explore the intimate site and its surprisingly insightful journal: Recent entries range from ramblings about working retail to touching and honest thoughts on friendship, love, and changing the world.
Taking a different approach is Brad Graham, whose "Bradlands" site is a labor of love from one of the funniest gay men in St. Louis. "The Daily Brad" section features slices of Graham's life packed into one easy-to-read loaf; his wry (rye?) observations make http://www.bradlands.com a daily must-visit.
But enough about everyone else. If these sites inspire you to spread your own message across the World Wide Web, check out Blogger, at http://www.blogger.com. It's the coolest way to keep your own online journal.
