I'm looking for some new blogs to read on home renovation/design, gardening, crafts (sewing, weaving, knitting), and personal but not professional blogs. [more inside]
A recent interview question threw me a bit for a loop (I'm an Interactive Project Manager) and before the next interview I want to have a better answer. The question was "How do you stay on top of all of the rapid advances in technology". So my question is, "What are the best blogs, internet magazines, message boards or websites that are always focused on the cutting edge and are ahead of their peers in recognizing coming trends in interactive/digital/mobile technology?"

I found this men's fashion blog called Well Spent and I love it. I love the emphasis on responsible sourcing (environmentally and labor-wise), a lot of made in the US and Canada items, and "buy it for life" quality– meaning items so well made I could hand them down to my kids. Is there a woman's fashion blog like this?
I have a memory of a documentary on British television, possibly in the early 00s about blogging culture, which had interviews with key figures, but I can't remember the title. Any ideas?
I like to read lifestyle blogs about homemaking, with a focus on homesteading, country life, simple living, and/or home decor and DIY renovation projects. But almost everything I can find is written by stay-at-home moms and contains lots of content about motherhood. I'm childfree and just can't seem to connect emotionally with that type of content. Are there any blogs about these topics that are parenthood-free?
It's freezing and I want to look at happy green things. Recommend me some gardening blogs?
I'd like to start a blog to provide links each day to informative writing and videos about race and racism. I'd like a good name for it and ideas for theme days, like Wednesdays focused on White fragility. Straightforward and cute names both accepted (and opinions on which one is better). [more inside]
Looking for blogs that focus on clean design, in both/either sense: aesthetically clean lined and clean in terms of low VOCs, easy to keep clean, etc. [more inside]
With so many choices of themes, how does one go about narrowing them down? I'm a bit overwhelmed by the myriad of choices. I understand that security, updates, and responsiveness are all important. I'm brand new to WordPress and want to get going on building my installation, but I'm really kind of stuck until I figure out this theme thing. Bonus Question: I do realize you get what you pay for when it comes to themes. Do you have any recommendations for reasonably priced ones?
My feeds are getting boring to me. I was reading quite a few home reno blogs but really I'm interested in reading well written material on a range of subjects. I guess that is too broad though...so maybe I like blogs about films or television, pop culture, literature, or art and design? [more inside]
I've been a blogger, off and on, since "weblog" first became a word, but the way blogs and communities are built these days confounds me. I miss tight-knit, ye olde internet communities but am no longer sure how they are built or nourished in a noisier, more commercialized web. I need opinions. [more inside]
I want to get really, really in touch with what's happening with local politics: specifically, Seattle and Washington State issues. Do you know resources beyond Crosscut and KUOW for keeping up with the inside baseball? [more inside]
Having recently accepted that my ASD will not go away, and looking to engage a little bit more with it, can you recommend any regular fixtures (regular articles, blogs, tumblrs, books possibly) that are written from an autistic perspective? [more inside]

I used to be part of a group that blogged anonymously and read anonymous blogs through xanga, which effectively shut down a year or two ago. I really miss this community, as well as the opportunity to read these sorts of semi-private blogs. How can I find a similar community? [more inside]
Can you help me put together a list of crochet blogs and instructional videos that explain in painstaking detail -- like, looped super-close-up slow-motion detail -- how to a) stitch something other than Ch, Sc, and Dc and b) make some simple crocheted gifts? [more inside]

I'm hoping to someday change careers into a more writing-focused field. The advice for this is always "start a blog and join Twitter." I would like to do both of these things, but I have so many interests, and such difficulty thinking about how any of them would translate into a blog, that I'm stuck at the screening phase. How to pick one? [more inside]
I have an idea for a blog/website where I post my own music and write about the music theory/arrangement and mixing/mastering techniques behind each MP3 snippet. What's the most idiot proof way I should go about this? [more inside]
I'm an adult in my 30s and have just been positively screened for Autism. I'm actually really happy, because a lot of things in my life now make a lot more sense. I'd like to read on the internets stuff that autistic adults have written about their own lives. I'm interested in personal blogs and stuff that has been more formally published. Can you help? [more inside]
I've wanted to start a small business (ideally a side business that I can run while keeping my day job) for a long, long time. Both for extra income, and for fun. But I don't know what I should do, and it's scary too! One thing I've found helpful so far is reading the stories of other people who have started businesses. I'd love to find more of these kinds of stories, so please suggest books, blogs, articles, or anything else I should check out! [more inside]

I'm redesigning my food blog, and am looking for inspiration! I read a lot of food blogs but almost all of them have verrrry similar setups: 2 columns, header, menu across the top, a variety of ads and widgets in one sidebar, yawn. I don't think there's anything wrong with that, but I also think that there is a lot more that could be done with the genre. Inspire me! [more inside]
I'm looking for blogs/sites that are about/by people of color but are not (necessarily) about racism. So places that are more AfroPunk and less Racialicious. [more inside]
As part of a getting-to-know-your-future-career exercise for college students, I'm looking for blogs that focus on some aspect of life in any of the following professions: nursing; law enforcement; criminal justice (parole system, prison guards, lawyers); acting/directing/theatre; TV/film; business administration; marketing; finance; chemistry/biology research or tech; sports coaching. [more inside]
What, in your opinion, is the best site for blogging? [more inside]
What are some good, smart, thoughtful popular culture blogs written by women? I'm mostly interested in more generalized coverage than a focus on a single medium/genre. Doesn't necessarily have to have a strong feminist perspective, though that's fine. Thanks for any suggestions!
I'm looking for more excellent blogs written by novelists. Point me in the right direction! [more inside]
I'm a food blogger and my photo editing process takes way too much time to justify at this moment in my life (normally I spend a long time on Photoshop saving everything for the web and resizing to a 605 width so it fits my blog). Is there a way I can do that straight from my phone and publish on to Flickr directly? That would be a huge help!
Ye olde Fleshbot was really cool because it was well curated and included all types of sexy media including videos, links, industry news, pop culture, reviews. It even had options for both queer and straight focused content. The last few years I've found that it's really gone downhill and gotten pretty mainstream and generic. [more inside]

I am trying to find blogs about epilepsy that are frequently updated and who have a twitter account I can hopefully follow. Majority of the one's I found have sporadic updates and don't really delve into patient/caretaker experience in depth (advocacy groups have community forums but they are all over the place). It can be for childhood or adult epilepsy diagnosis. Any suggestion would be greatly appreciated!
My role at my job is changing and I need to stay more abreast of the latest trends in IT, specifically: enterprise platforms (CRMs, CSMs, Human Resources, General Ledger, and lots more!), mobile strategy, cloud-first strategy, DaaS, and I'm sure things I don't even know about yet. I'm looking for good blogs/online resources that I can stay on top of to help me with this. Note: I do not have a CS background, but am OK reading things that require additional digging to understand. [more inside]
I'm considering posting starting a blog where I post reviews of Startups. I would like to try to get at least a few people reading my blog, so perhaps I should join a blog network. A few options of heard of are Tumblr, Wordpress.com and Medium. Does anyone have any recommendations on which site it'd be easiest to build an audience? I'd be willing to try other sites too. I'm not trying to make this commercial or anything - it'd just be nice to get some feedback.
I'm trying to collect RSS feeds from blogs or other news sources focused on sustainable agriculture and food systems. Suggestions? [more inside]

Looking for a wordpress theme that replicates the "Chunky" tumblr theme. I like the old-fashioned newspaper-style layout but I need something responsive and a little more flexible and customizable. Any suggestions would be appreciated, thanks!
I'm looking to expand my Twitter feed to include more parent-bloggers. I'm interested in intelligent discussion, not product-hawking, from real people. So the Motherlode blog/Twitter feed from the NY Times is okay, but not exactly right because it's just…too big, and not really a conversation. I've seen this post, and will look at those blogs, but I'm specifically interested in Twitter feeds. [more inside]
There are some blogs and websites I would like to read in plain text or even HTML, I just don't want to click through hundreds of pages, and I definitely don't want to download them one by one. [more inside]
You'd think it would be easy to find good thrifting blogs... but so far it hasn't been. Here's what I'm looking for: blogs by people who go to Goodwill and similar thrift stores and buy things for their home/garden and either use them as-is or fix them up somehow. I'm not interested in blogs that focus on clothing/fashion, or blogs that are only about crafting with thrift-store stuff, or blogs that are only about buying and then reselling on ebay or whatever.
What are the best blogs or other online publications about history (any kind) out there? I'm looking for medium-to-long, well-researched, smart, readable articles by a variety of authors with some expertise in their subject matter. I don't want anything too clickbaity, but nothing straight from an academic journal either.
Looking for something in between gowns and suits. [more inside]
Recently someone on the blue pointed me to Fosterhood, a blog written by a foster mom and I was obsessed--read the 270+ pages of archives in about 3 days. I'm looking for other similar blogs, but googling for 'top recommendations' of parenting blogs hasn't exactly found me what I want. [more inside]
