The Google reader thread got me thinking about the blogs and such that i read now that are non-knitting related and I started wondering what great funny and informative blogs or websites you all love that I may be missing.

www.postsecret.blogspot.com (http://www.postsecret.blogspot.com) I check every sunday!
www.VergeNewMedia.com (http://www.VergeNewMedia.com) is written by an NBC cameraman and has very cool behind the scenes blogging.
http://melissamaples.com/ Girl living in Turkey... thoughtful and often quite funny.
http://www.mistershades.co.uk/ guy from scotland who won my heart when i got a mention in his blog for telling him to stop killing kittens! ;)
http://www.beachwalks.tv/ Woman video blogs from Hawaii almost daily. If nothing else worth watching just for the scenery
http://blogs.chron.com/beltwayconfidential/ White House journalist who blogs in a somewhat snarky manner. Kind of feels like we are getting inside look of DC from her. Fun!

OOOH and these are a couple of my favorite blogs that coordinate with a couple of my favorite podcasts.

http://tinyurl.com/2m3kjq Living Green

Both are Greenie websites! ;)

DOH!

I can NOT believe i forgot to tell you about this one. I LOVE this blog. He can be a little bit vulgar in his language so don't say I didn't warn you. I often laugh so hard at his posts that I cry though.

If you like dadgonemad you will probably like her... I saw his through a link on her blog... to me -- she is freakin' hilarious, but sometime along the more honesty than some people can stand side (cussing, etc.). Probably not for the faint of heart.....

She is funny, down to earth, and her photography is amazing. :inlove:

She also recently began a cooking blog to share her yummy recipes.

http://www.thepioneerwomancooks.com/

Be warned, they are not low-fat. :shock: They are yummy, though.

I've made about three of her dishes. She has close-up, step-by-step colorful photos with each recipe, and she's funny there, too. :lol:
