What Blogs Do You Follow?

Time put out their The 25 Best Bloggers, 2013 Edition list out this month, and as a new blogger myself I’d been waiting for it all year. I admit I don’t read enough, as a writer, but who can really say what’s enough? That’s my excuse.

I’ve been going through the 25 blogs that Time recommended this entire last week, and have some bookmarked for random clicking. Keep in mind I’m not a big techie or gamer so I’ve not included Time’s recommendations for such. I don’t know if I’ll stick with any of them long-term, but I’ll share with you some of my tries…

One of them is The Bloggess. I want to like it, but I’m not in love with it. Maybe you’ll like it right away though, as it’s got rave reviews. She’s different, and different’s good.

TheBloggessAnother is What My Daughter Wore and it’s visually satisfying for me while I have my morning coffee. I can’t draw to save my life so I appreciate the blog’s work, although sometimes it feels like a portfolio and not a blog.


There’s Suri’s Burn Book, which I can’t believe I never knew about. Who’s fault is that?! I think I’m addicted…



With Ask The Pilot there’s all the random useless but sometimes useful knowledge about everything you wanted to know about pilot-stuff. If you’re into flying and flying stories, then check it out.

AskThePilotNow, I’d like to know…

Aside from the major mainstream websites out there, what are some blogs you follow other than mine? I’m always down for finding new reading, so if you have a favorite hidden treasure of a blog I’d ask you to share one with me. If you find something on the Time’s list that you think I should give a second try, then let me know!

Always dishing





  1. Matt

    I follow Thought Catalog on my feedly app. They are a collection of essays more than a blog because the writers submit work. But I consider it a blog by a variety of writers

  2. I love The Bloggess! I have read her book and bought it for two of my friends. She admits that she’s a bit nutty but that’s why I like her. I don’t get the Dr Who or taxidermy fascination but I love reading the other random stuff she comes up with.

    But, if you remember from my pic, your blog ranked first on my bookmark bar…. Hers came in 4th after EW and the dreaded CNN.

  3. Shienara

    She hasn’t written much lately, as she suffers from depression, but the author of Hyperbole and a Half is truly, side splitting hilarious and very honest about a variety of topics. I don’t have a link, but you should be able to find it via Google. 🙂

  4. I used to like The Bloggess, but it seems like she’s kind of been phoning it in since her book deal. You might enjoy her archives more: when she’s “on,” she’s absolutely hilarious.

    Having been working a lot lately, I can’t even remember what blogs I typically read! (Other than this one, of course, and I’m reading through about 2 weeks of old posts right now. Have I posted to my own blog in the last 2 weeks? Noooooo, I am an even worse blogger than I am a reader.) Anyhow, checking my feedly, the best ones I find are: Get Off My Internets (getoffmyinternets.net), which many bloggers do not find all that funny, but I do; and Monkey See (NPR’s TV-and-popular-culture blog). Regretsy.com has stopped publishing, but if you didn’t read it in the past, the archives are pretty hysterical.


Feel Free to Dish!
