Our Features

Here's a list of our features at the WGOM.   It will perpetually be in a state of "mostly updated" because we like things to be half baked around here.  If you have an idea for a new feature, we're always happy to have them.  We might even get around to adding it to the list!

Daily Features

Cup of Coffee

Weekly Features

Friday Music Day (freealonzo & Philosofer)

Also, citizens can share any thoughts on music that can wait until Fridays.

Monthly Features

First Monday Book Day (Daneeka's Ghost, Pepper, and brianS)
In which the author bloviates on a book they managed to read in the past month, as an excuse to talk about Literature. Proving once again that the WGOM is the World's Greatest Online Magazine. Like the New Yorker without cartoons or paid professionals.

Barley Pops and Hop Hits (brianS)
The WGOM wouldn't be the WGOM without a healthy dose of alcohol. But we are responsible drinkers. BPHH explores the glorious world of fermented grains, one pint at a time, through irregular beer reviews (Pint-Sized Reviews), and the occasional beer travelogue. Guest posts are welcomed, and home brew sharing strongly encouraged.

The EEE and MMM provide a weekly round-up of Citizens' favorite soccer teams. This space is also used for any other general soccer items to share.
Weekly Wild Whangdoodle (Daneekas Ghost (seasonal))
A desperate attempt to give the local hockey team some WGOM ink.

Remodeled basement. Same half-baked taste.
