What Are Your Favorite Blogs?

I know that I'm behind the times blog wise. For the past six months, I've added almost no blogs to my reading list, instead just staying with my tried and true blog list.

But the blogosphere waits for no man (or woman) and I want to start expanding my blog reading again.

So tell me. What are your favorite blogs, and what should I be reading?

What's wrong with your tried and true list?

I ask because I've been trying to pare down my blog reading instead of add to it, which is the only thing I've done for ages. Now I'm realizing that I don't want to feel like I always have to read blogs to clear out Google Reader. There's too much to do to keep up with a lot of blogs.

(Of course, I have a huge list of bookmarked blogs when I have time to read... Right now I'm going through a letter-writing and baking blogs phase.)

Maybe there is something about the question that I am not getting but... isn't that what blogroll is for ?

You look different - or have I had too much caffeine again?

Yeah, I curse a little every time I find a new awesome blog... soooo many unread posts in Google Reader! I may need to institute a one-in-one-out policy.

I've been trying to read books rather than add blogs lately...

The only blog I've added to my roll lately is
http://www.suburbancrunch.com/blog/

She's at the same point I am -- kinda new to the green changes and eager to do a lot at once. After reading so many of you that are further along the green path, I needed to connect with someone else at my stage :)

I also like Wasted Food:

I'm sure everything else I read is on your tried & true list...

Sorry, I can't give you any to add either, as I too have been inundated with blogs to read and just can never keep up. Stick with the tried and true is what I say. You don't have to read everything. Or whatever. Why am I telling you what to do? I should be in bed!

Oh, no Cath--one in and one out policy? Sounds drastic! =)

I, too, am trying to avoid adding to my blog reading list--which is difficult, because I keep stumbling upon interesting new blogs. But the next month or so of work will probably squash my blog reading some...

Arduous,

You've probably forgotten about that interview meme by now... But here are your questions, if you're still interested. (Sorry it took me so long!)

1.You’ve mentioned that you studied theatre in college. Would you mind telling us a little about that? What was your specialization? Acting? Set design? Writing or directing? (I think this stuff is fascinating, though I know very little about it!).

2. So… have you decided, ideally, where you’d like to live? (A while back you had a blog post trying to choose from London, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Washington D.C., and Chicago).

3. What are your career plans when you finish grad school?

4. What has been the biggest surprise/adjustment in your move to London? And what do you like best about the city? (Two separate questions, I know—sorry!)

5. What was your favorite book from childhood?

Looking forward to new Arduous insights...

Hmm- this post is interesting! I have found that there are a LOT of blogs out there I want to keep track of. Sometimes I'll think- oh I'll add them later (say I'm procrastinating at work.. lol) and then I forget their sites!

Finding new blogs takes searching time- but always can be interesting!

I really like "groundingthruthesitbones.blogspot.com" (yoga)

myriadthings.blogspot.com (eco-taichi)

I'm glad I stumbled across your blog too!
