yes I have a list as long as your arm of blogs I follow but that is not the same as a damn good blog, quite often I have to cull the blogs I follow because they have lost their quality or they are rude, or insulting, even worse when they insult readers then start stamping their feet and sulking muttering about this is their opinion, if I find it offensive I have an immediate reaction=click the unfollow button. on the other side of thing there are select few that are consistent good quality, have some thought provoking and respectful conversations and never show aggression, I will never promote a blog that rants, I have my reasons but mostly I just won’t promote negativity or aggression. so on to the list which is only the beginning because right now it is late and I am tired so I will update when I see fit 🙂 first off the mark
http://waitingforthekarmatruck.com/2012/09/07/thoughts-for-a-friday-afternoon-2/ this is the blog of the darling mims, this woman is close to my heart a genuine kind and caring soul with a lovely blog full of wonderful insightful supportive and genuinely caring posts. mims adorable personality shines through everything she writes and I have adopted this woman as my sister i love her that much so go have a read and you will feel the love too 🙂
Rhonda the superb rhonda , this is my second adopted sister and I adore her, most especially her sense of humour and use of gratuitous language 🙂 I call her the lovely rhinda yet I can feel her smile each time I do it 🙂 her posts superbly written and though some times just for laughs some can offer a depth I am not capable of she has my full respect and admiration as a writer and as a person, visit her blog and you will find fab stuff to read there.
http://thelastsongiheard.wordpress.com/ he is a good bloke who knows his tunes 🙂 this is one of the few people who picked an admirable theme for his blog and stuck to it, writing for his son but the son who will read this in some future time when grown up, it’s a brilliant concept go have a read I love the delving into the past and his connections with the tunes he uses in each post, it’s a brilliant anchor for each post to open with a tune and associated memory and it has purpose and organisation two things my blog is allergic too 🙂
http://donnaanddiablo.wordpress.com/ this is such a lovely and sweetly gorgeous little blog plus we have nearly matching dogs; one big one little, or teeny tiny in my case 🙂 the sweetest of friends always there for you and always supportive give her blog a try its just lovely plus anyone who loves their dogs as much as me is a big winner is my book 🙂 she is genuine and caring and has my full respect. ok there is more but my eyes are closing and it is not good to type with your eyes closed, it really doesn’t make sense. honest. so good night sweet dreams i shall more to this tomorrow
unfortunately this blog mentioned above doesn’t seem to have posted in a while which is sad the blog is still in existence though so you can still drop by for a look, I will check the others as to which is regularly updated
http://thewhyaboutthis.com/ this blog is full of interesting information, all written with the wise words of dear penny, her advice should be read slowly take your time read it all and savour what she is trying to tell you, often uplifting always wise and encouraging,
http://peopleplacesandbling.com/2012/09/14/paris-tips-8-french-fads-and-beauty-secrets/ now this is one of my fave ever blogs it is immensly interesting, i love it it always has the most interesting pictures and i love to read it too, based around paris in the main it has a feel of comfortable indulgence i makes me want to go back to paris and every time i read it i would happily go live there,
writing between the lines an interesting blog i learn from this one constantly, no matter when i pop in for a browse i always learn something new and interesting or useful, plus very lovely photos” a brilliant photographer i always appreciate mainly because i would love to be but really i totally suck at photography, read and enjoy a recommended blog to all.
christopher de voss I have been following this bloke for a while now and I love his sense of humour always cheers me up and brings smile to my face, plus he has really good attitude towards zombies.
daniel is funny oh my god this guy is the funniest i love everything he wrote but check his fifty shades of grey quotes on pictures brilliant and he writes for cracked too which is also one of my fave sites to spend an hour or so on.
Fictional machines J E Lattimer brilliant blog dark writing with bright pictures love it, not sure why i love dystopian futurism so much but i do and this blog takes me there in an instant
renae rude paranormalist I love this little place a hidden wordpress gem, lots of info on lots of different paranormal areas always an interesting read, if like me you are interested in all things paranormal then have a visit you will soon be reading everything from macabre and mysterious music to snippets of her own life which show this lady to be a wonderful warm and compassionate person, a lady I would be glad to have a neighbour and friend any day.
Critique Collective a new fave of mine this is a wonderful and interesting and insightful blog, it brings together selected artists and along with interviews and examples of their work the reader is gently but absorbingly drawn in to the current world of art and artists today. Never focusing on just one type I appreciate the approach and viewing all types of artists, even if the art form is not something I ordinarily find appealing; for instance I find many of the modern or abstract painting just too hard to understand or appreciate, this blog is particularly good at showing me through the interview of each artist another side, another view, and a deeper understanding and I like this, I recommend you give this blog a look through, it is interesting, fascinating, and looks good.
bonnie not sure why i hadn’t put in this before i love this blog what a lovely way with words and more often that not a thought provoking piece of writing is in all the posts it doesn’t matter where you jump in any and all have a distinct manner and before you know it you have lost an hour or two reading this brilliant blog, i recomend this blog for the reasons i have mentioned and more it has something for everyone i reckon and imparts wonderful advice and interesting conversational pieces it’s one of those i call ‘welcome blogs’ because everyone is made to feel welcome and everyone can feel comfortable happily reading away the afternoon
this is a fabulous blog the pictures are brilliant such a fantastic photographer! it helps that the subject matter is something I adore and that is old architecture the detail is super and the blog posts have also given me a great insight into cuba , for an armchair traveller like me this blog brings to life places I could never see but would love to, even if you just go for a look at the pictures then please go check it out you are bound to find something interesting to read and lovely to look at.
love this lady she is generous and kind and off to china! how fab is that, in her blog you will find interesting writing i hope lots of stuff about china when she gets back, but also she is a good writer and is especially good at short stories there are many of them on her blog what always amazes me is she can write a brilliant short story with a word limit of say for example 50 words now for me that is impossible! a good blog i recommend it to all.
WARNING WARNING WARNING THIS NEXT BLOG FEATURED IS ADULT IN NATURE AND CONTAINS EXPLICIT ADULT LANGUAGE
okay that’s a big enough warning I reckon ^_^ I thought long and hard about this one because when I first started blogging and also in particular the contents of this page I worried a lot I thought deeply and carefully as to those blogs I was going to recommend, it is no small compliment to be on this page i follow literally hundreds of blogs but only few make it on to this page, I would only recommend those I considered the best, part of that was in measuring not just how much I enjoyed the blog in question but how suitable it was for others. Now I am the first to admit I d not really like gratuitous swearing or erotica it’s just not for me, but in saying this this guy is a damn good writer and his blog though quite definitely adult in nature also contains some real gems, my fave of the moment is a short story he wrote called no-believes in fairies and it’s great and does not contain any adult activities ^_^ just the odd bit of swearing so go have a look and before you do make sure you are open minded and you will find a little gem or two as well ^_^
ahh now trentle a man of good humour and sometimes he even has a good taste in music however thats not why you should visit his blog, how to describe his blog, well his sense of humour shows through but read his stories, he is very much a talented story writer and what I like about him is he isn’t afraid to push himself, he will and actively does seek out his boundaries then pushes them away, even if it is something he thinks his fans may not like, and that is brave and there not many authors who would dare do that too many would be scared of losing followers but not trentle he laughs in the face of lost followers he tramples on the big toe of scorned readers he ermmm okay read his blog read his stories I liked them I hope you do to.
aarrgggh somehow one of my very top fave blogs has been lost chewed up by wordpress and removed so I shall now remedy that;-
this is brilliant and in my opinion deserves top blog award if there was such a thing, If you are a big history fan like me then you will love this blog, showing snippets pictures and photos of new york as it changes through the years I love it have a look you will too there is so much to learn every post is interesting unearths some forgotten piece of history of all the blogs i follow this is one i go to every time and fulfills the criteria to be here on this page it is a blog I could not live without!
this blog had grown on me, I knew from the first post I ever read on there I would come back to it time and again, however it has become more important to me the more I have read, it is a deep blog john is a deep person and his posts make me think and I like that but most of all I love how I learn so much from this man, his posts on philosophy enlightened me and his travels, campfires in the forest how I wish I could have gone too, I can’t say in short and then sum up about this blog because there is no in short it is cerebral, it is fascinating, it is stimulating, if you want something more from a blog than light hearted entertainment then I urge you to go here and have a read I often find myself lingering there for a few hours and I love that, this blog has depth to it and there is not a lot of blogs can say that.
oh my god i can’t believe i didn’t have this on here i have clearly somehow just lost the plot because i already thought this was included, and i have to first this ranks in my top five blogs so it shouldn’t be way down here! okay why you should go look at this blog is quite simple really this blog shows some of the most amazing art, often showing a few works together of an artist this blog has been responsible for introducing me to some very great artists, and not always mainstream either one of the concepts i love about this blog is that it shows me any and all artists work no judgement, no critique – which is wonderful refreshing and brilliant, just their work pure and simple and i love that, it leaves me free to just enjoy the art presented, and through this blog i have now a much larger and interesting introduction to artists i would have never seen and yet they have produced the most excellent and often thought provoking art. To me this blog shows exactly the true worth of a good blog; along with educating me, it interests me, excites me, and surprises me, all without saying a word! now that has to be worth a look right? i love it and not often do i wait and wonder what will be shown next so to this blog i give one of the highest honours my loyalty, along with my unending interest and attention, and that is hard to beat ^_^ it takes serious subject matter to gain my attention and is often near impossible to keep it! this blog makes the internet an interesting place it fulfills the need of helping artist meet audience and while there are a zillion blogs about books/reading to be honest wordpress is full of them yet art is of the same importance, to me art is what i need first and foremost if anyone were to ask i would love to be known as an artist, and recently i made myself draw again after many years and it was good ^_^ even my writing is always inspired by art -not music as most writers seem to prefer it doesn’t work that way for me i think music occupies a different place in my soul than art, art is so many things to many people but to me good art is unbeatable and inspirational, and this blog gives good art ^_^
