current blog recommendations

Posted in blogroll, nablopomo by theobvious on November 16, 2010

Here are ten blogs which hardly ever get skipped when they come up on my Google Reader:

  1. A Cup of Jo — it’s usually sweet and full of pretty things.
  2. Abstract City — gorgeous and funny illustrated stories.
  3. Bliss — love her I Love Mondays where she lists shopping finds.
  4. Dooce — snarky, funny, and well-written.
  5. Gemma Correll — wonderful illustrator, loves coffee and pugs.
  6. Hark, a Vagrant — sarcastic, highly educated comics.
  7. Information is Beautiful — infographics are my friends.
  8. Letters of Note — unique documents of diverse times and events.
  9. Penelope Bagieu — funny, nicely drawn, helpful for my French.
  10. Stephen Fry — can’t be a true fan and not read the blog.

Not to mention, of course, the daily comic strips like Questionable Content, Girls With Slingshots, Inkdick, and Indexed, among others.

Check them all out!

English is probably the language with the most non-native speakers brazen enough to use it for public purposes such as blogging. While some of us have only scraped together enough of it to pass for Frenchmen (you seemply ‘ave to see somesing wiz Depardieu, ‘ee is merveilleux!), others are doing their Oxford education justice by using quotes from Cervantes and including in their introductory post such words as bereft and assessment criterium.

It is my pleasure to present to you, my dear five and a half readers, the newest addition to my blogroll, one of my oldest (and cleverest) friends – Le Bagatelle. For those of you in doubt, this is not his real name.
