Favorite Non-Knitting Blogs and Websites?
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 I check every sunday!
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://www.americathegreen.com/
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.

Okay I think that is all I have for now. what are yours?

I am very new to the whole blogging world... and these so far are the only two blogs of non-knitting content that i read with regularity

http://observantmidwife.blogspot.com/
http://mamamidwifemadness.blogspot.com/

both are centered on birthing through natural childbirth and written by midwives. :D this would be a wonderful thing to be a part of...... hmmm

anyhow! thanks for this post brenda

Three of the best written/funniest blogs on the 'net
Psycokitty - Yes, it's written by a cat
Bitchypoo - How can you not read a blog called Bitchypoo? As evidence that she is indeed hilarious, please read her post, The Frog.
Vituperation - Bitchypoo's husband, Fred

My absolute favorite blog is...
http://www.thepioneerwoman.com/

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

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

http://www.thepioneerwomancooks.com/

Be warned, they are not low-fat. 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.
