In response to this comment, a cheeky group of bloggers have adopted the junk drawer as a label and incorporated it into their bylines:

- Erin -Wondering and Wandering But Never Lost (in the junk drawer)
- Brother Maynard – Be There
- Pam – Essays of discovery and disillusionment from the junk drawer of Faith
- Makeesha – Firmly rooted in the junk drawer, stretching my branches up and out. (can I be the cellophane wrapped plastic spork?)
- Mike – a voice from the corner of the Junk Drawer
- David – thoughts and artings from the junk drawer
And Makeesha came up with a creative alternative for my byline –
“…in the junk drawer as it is in the china cabinet.”
