Our blog rail often feels like an eclectic dinner party where celebrities, politicians, students and any Canadian with an intelligent opinion gather around the same table. Almost every day this year we have read about how different people view government, public figures, other cultures and their own lives. Taken on their own, each blog might seem underwhelming. After all, it is just one person's opinion, and your crazy Aunt Edna has no shortage of those. But when we publish these insights, arguments and confessions on our platform, often something special happens. Often these blogs become fire crackers, igniting a national conversation.

Playboy for tweens, bad fast food, attachment parenting, the new iPhone 5 and call your zayde (I'll explain). It's been a fun week. There's no doubt you all remember our favourite breast feeding mommy, Jamie Lynn Grumet, who posed for the cover of TIME Magazine last spring with her three year old son at her breast.

Dispatches From Down East: Why Men Aren't Interested in Daddy Bloggers

Why do men generally avoid reading parenting blogs? Men may not find a parenting blog written by a woman to be of continuing interest (due to content and topics), but there are blogs written on parenting by men. Which further begs the question, in light of the fact that there are male-authored parenting blogs, why are there not more men reading parenting blogs written by men?

Doa'a Mheissin, a teenager from the Gaza Strip, has been blogging since she was 11 years old. This young woman may not look like a revolutionary, but in the years to come, she and girls like her could form the vanguard in the next chapter of the Arab Spring -- a much-needed gender revolution.

In cottage country, and even on Toronto's beaches up to the mid 1950s, it was common to see signs that read "No Dogs or Jews Allowed."

So I bet you're wondering post-G20: Is this the impending end of the world--or an opportunity for a cheap holiday in Greece next year?

To help us make sense of all this, we welcomed aboard a new Huffpost contributor, EU expert Jeffrey Cimbalo. His latest post declares the G20 an abject failure. Hmm. Don't start googling discount Olympic Air tickets yet.
