I read very few blogs these days. They all seem to be taken up with advertising, pointless posts, and not enough real life stuff. I like to read about people, about the things they are doing and thinking and (yes) sometimes making.
When did everyone get to be the same? Love the same stuff? Censor the same things? Think there is a certain way you have to blog? It's weird.
However, these are a few that I do love.
Pop Fizz Academy - I met Nic earlier in the year, when I stayed at her place the night before Morgan and I flew out to Dublin. Her and Morgan have been friends since college, if I remember correctly. Nic is fabulous, and is also doing some fabulously exciting things that she is bringing online. She runs a burlesque dance company in Philedelphia that she over-sees from here in Britain, but she is bringing the classes and ethos to online courses. Her blog is full of recipes you will want to eat, random tutorials she has written for e-how, thoughts and news. It's a good place to read.
Art as Life - Eh. Debee and me go way back, back when she is was dB C, a name I still can not get out of my head whenever I think of her. *True fact, debee!* You want to see the girl every scrapbooker seems to be trying to look like these days? Look no further than here.
Tea and Toast - I'm not even sure how I stumbled across Amy's blog. I think it was probably via flickr. However it was, she makes the cutest things for her etsy, and is a fellow crafty Briton. She blogs about things she made, and the life she's living, two things that I always like to catch up on. (Even if I am a terrible terrible commenter.)
Penny Red - is witty, intelligent, thoughtful, and constantly making me think about everything in the world. Literally. She has brilliant commentary on our British politics at the moment, and manages to keep readers informed via her well informed opinions. In short, she is far more brilliant at 23 than I believe I will ever be.
My Polaroid Blog - one girls life through polaroids. Need I say more.
a ghostly illness - I love Kim anyway. But I especially love this branch of Kim Smith. This is the place she is dumping all her ideas, thoughts, poems, feelings about dealing with her CFS. This is actually a school project (is that right, Kim?) but I have lost count the amount of times I read words that either I could of written, or that are laying hidden in many of my journals. She's working her way through this battlefield we call CFS, and she is doing it ever so beautifully.
