What I'm Reading

Forget what I'm reading this week - I want to know what you're reading!

My RSS feeds are feeling a little stale. What great blogs are on your feeds that I don't know about?

Don't tell me John Haydon or ReadWriteWeb or Amber Naslund or Copy Blogger - they're already there.

Maybe it's a great DC neighborhood blog I don't know about, or a literary food blog, or a humor blog that never fails to crack you up on a tough day, or your favorite music blogger, or a friend who writes biting political commentary - lay it on me!

I subscribe to all kinds of blogs, so have a few suggestions. I'm sure I'm leaving out some favorites, but here are a few to check out.

For politics and other randomness, I love Andrew Sullivan whose blog the Dish is now at The Daily Beast - http://andrewsullivan.thedailybeast.com/.

Big Think is always exploring something interesting - http://bigthink.com/blogs.

I like the NPR blogs, and Kiki recently introduced me to the Writers Almanac, daily poetry - http://writersalmanac.publicradio.org/

Patti Digh is doing a poem a day (or almost every day) this month at 37 Days - http://37days.typepad.com/37days/

3rd of May juxtaposes art and news every day - http://3rdofmay.tumblr.com/

I can give you art and food instead of literary food. Lostpastremembered - http://lostpastremembered.blogspot.com/

Looking forward to seeing what others suggest.

Here's a few of my non-association-related faves:

In Focus, the Atlantic's photoblog. Alan Taylor, who manages it, created The Big Picture photoblog for the Boston Globe before he joined the Atlantic. He does a fantastic job of curating sets of images that tell stories, some of which relate to the "big news" of the day and some of which are just surprising and interesting: http://www.theatlantic.com/infocus/

Maybe it's the editor in me, but SlushPile Hell always makes me giggle: http://slushpilehell.tumblr.com/

Longform.org is just plain addictive; they link to great long-form journalism, new and old: http://longform.org/

Deidre, I just visited a couple of the blogs you posted. Interesting and worth going to again. Thanks.

3rd of May is a bit weird, but in a good way.

I have to recommend Liam O'Malley's amazing food blog, http://mysocalledknife.com/. His wife's about to give birth any minute so there have been more musings than food posts lately but he's an amazing, amazing blogger.
