I'm looking for blogs talking about the daily life of someone with a job (or other life experience) that I don't have (and that is interesting). I want stories the layperson can relate to, not minutiae for the people already in the field. Any suggestions?
I really love blogs that give me an insider's look into the daily life of someone who does something I don't know anything about. So, for example, I was hooked on this blog by a medical student
(before he stopped posting), that had stories about dealing with the dead bodies, exams of fake patients for tests, etc. I also was addicted to many of the customer service ranting sites for a while (before the stories all started to blend together), and of the lawyer blogs (like this one
) that would talk about interesting stories involving clients.
I'm looking for the same kind of blogs, but for different jobs/lifestyles. So maybe a chef talking about running a restaurant (I'm addicted to Top Chef), a therapist on counseling, or a fashion designer on the working up, pitching, and ultimately selling their designs.
What I *don't* want is a blog for the medical community that deals with interesting (to them) news on the latest research, or opinions on the best kind of medicine. Or a fashion designer talking about whose clothes are interesting this year, or who wore what dress where. Basically, I want stories. Any ideas?
