These are a few of my favorite blogs…

February 17, 2009

Today was exceedingly busy with a bunch of client projects, so unfortunately I don’t have a well thought out blog post for you. Instead, I thought I’d share a couple of blogs that do have some great posts that you should check out, if you’re in the mood for some reading material. These are websites I visit on a regular basis and have become a mainstay in my RSS feed reader (which just happens to be Bloglines, although it kills me when it decides to reload the last 200 posts for a blog).

Feministing: This site has the best smart, snarky commentary on every issue involving womankind. They can sometimes be a little over-the-top or dramatic for my taste, but their coverage of national and international women’s rights violations will keep you well-rounded when it comes to foreign affairs and international social justice. If you or someone you know is a woman, read this.

Frugal Dad: I love personal finance blogs, even though I’m terrible with my finances. Oh the irony. The format of Frugal Dad’s posts are very easy to follow, and pretty entertaining too. I could write an entire post with my personal finance blogs, but I think I’ll highlight Frugal Dad this time around.

Dooce: The mommyblog to end all mommyblogs. Seriously, even if you’re not a mother, even if you’re not a parent, even if you HATE CHILDREN, you should read Dooce. Trust me. When you do, you’ll understand why.

Chelsea Talks Smack: I kind of think of Chelsea as the twentysomething version of Dooce. Mostly because she writes in ALL CAPS and bold. She’s also feisty. But Chelsea also talks about issues – deep serious issues – that twentysomethings face. She also has a great soundtrack that goes along with her blog, so even if you hate the blog, you’ll probably like the music.

Bluejake: Bluejake is a photo blog by Jake Dobkin. Most of them are taken in Brooklyn. I always find them interesting and beautiful, mostly because they are of a place I rarely visit despite how close I live to Brooklyn. If you like photography, it’s worth a stop over.

Share a website with me in the comments section. Thanks!

    I was shocked that your first website was feministing – my sister an editor for the website. How weird!?!?! I guess it shows that the blogosphere is really quite a small world. Recently I have been following Phil and Team Type 1 in their Tour of California:

    Love, love, love Dooce! Have you tried Jen Lancaster is the author of Bright Lights, Big Ass and Pretty Fat and a couple other books. She’s funny and although some of her posts have been sporadic lately, I encourage you to go back and read some of her archived stuff. Very funny.

    I met Jen Lancaster last weekend. I picked up her first book (very similar name to the name of my blog!) and had her autograph it.

    If you haven’t been to Blog Nosh, check it out. They bring together the best of the best from the internet, highlighting magazine quality work from bloggers who you may or may not have heard about.

    I am biased because I am Blog Nosh’s Green Living Channel editor. If anyone has a favorite green living post they have read or written, please let me know!

    Carolyn: No way! Really? It isn’t Courtney, is it? I don’t know… C names… haha. Tell her that I love her site!

    Lora: I have been to Jennsylvania. It’s a cute, funny site. I haven’t read much of it, but I will add it to my RSS feed. Maybe I’ll get into it.

    Leeanthro: I have seen BlogNosh too. It seems like a really good resource!

    No, it’s not Courtney…it is ann. I’ll pass the message along to her.

    Carolyn: Way cool!

    Khurt: I’m glad you like it!
