WE BLOG TOGETHER.
I read a lot of blogs. I read a lot of blogs about...everything. I read a lot of blogs about nothing. Heck, I remember when blogs used to be called e/n websites, which stood for everything/nothing. Remember that? Heck I remember when the computer whistled at you, I know the secrets of atdt, I know the passwords to sooth the angry bbs! I know the haunted bones of the internet. Well, in the spirit of revisting the concept behind the webcomic post I wrote, I thought I'd speak about some of the blogs I read. Now, I'm all new fangled & sparkly, & run these things through my feed aggregator, but I went through the trouble to fish them out & write up a little blurb about them. In case you were curious what you were missing.
The Force is Strong is a quirky picture blog about everyone's favorite Space Opera, Star Wars. Number One is a blog...of pictures...of Commander William T. Riker. RetroFuturism is a blog about yesterday's tomorrow. The Faking Hoaxer makes fake UFO & space disaster videos that defy incredulity. Gamæcca is the research blog of author Nicola Griffith, whose blog blog is also worth reading. Worm-stung God is the epic Norse translation blog you've been waiting for! Strange Maps is a bunch of...weird...maps. BiblioOdyssey is a massive collection of gorgeous images. The Morae River is a stunning exploration of fictional flora & fauna.
Raising a Psychopath is a blog about raising your kid. When he's a psychopath. For real. Tiny Art Director is a father being yelled at, adorably, by his daughter. Brazen Careerist is the advice column slash blog of Penelope Trunk, who, as a woman with Asperger's, sees the world just akilter enough to help it make sense. Savage Love is the sex advice blog everyone you kno reads. Slacktivist writes a blog about politics, religion, & the occasional indepth review of the Left Behind books. Derren Brown is a noted mentalist, & he & his team update this blog.
Bai Ling is...more dada than Dada, more surreal than Sir Real. Jezebel is a Gawker blog marginally about feminism. io9 is a Gawker blog marginally about science fiction. Gothamist is the New York City blog everyone reads. Best Week Ever is a big ole media mashup. Playing DnD with Porn Stars is exactly what it says it is, & actually a good gaming blog, to boot. Vaguely NSFW but not actually pr0n. Haute Macabre is a gothy fashion blog full of awesome outfits.
