Help me read what other autistic adults have written!

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?

Seeking interesting stories of starting small businesses

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]

Best Personal Blog Design, 2015 Edition

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]

Recommend a woman-written pop culture blog

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!

From Phone To Flickr, Resized and Fast

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!

Sites that are similar to Fleshbot circa 2007 (NSFWish)

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]

Epilepsy in the blogosphere

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!

Keepin' Up with the Future

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]

Blog network for posting reviews of startups

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.

Who are your favorite parent-bloggers/mommy-bloggers on Twitter?

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]

Good thrifting blogs?

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.

Blogs written by bookstore employees or librarians

Google doesn't seem to help in regards to what I'm looking for, which is personal blogs written by either bookstore employees or librarians, detailing their day-to-day adventures (or misadventures); perhaps an anonymous blog would be even better, because I appreciate reading snarky and critical posts, too, about dealing with weird costumers, for example. Also, when it comes to librarians' blogs, I'm not looking for the more technical aspects of the library world (that's why Google didn't help). Thanks! [more inside]

Blog-Magazines For Cool Colorful Punk Babes

Lately I've been really into the blog Ribbon Around A Bomb, who writes about female-fronted 70s post-punk, Twin Peaks, feminist art, and leather jackets. I also love The Pulp Zine, which is full of teen dreams and high school small town angst, an obsession with Burger Records, 90s nostalgia, black lipstick and pink hair. I'm looking for more blogs that cover punk, garage rock, femme fun, DIY, weirdo fashion, nostalgia, queerness, creativity, feminism, art, and worship of countercultural idols. Basically, I'm a fully-grown scummy punk boyfemme who wants the experience of flipping through a teen magazine tailored to my interests. What other sites would I love? [more inside]

What are your favorite book blogs?

I'm looking for some good book blogs in the style of Forever Young Adult, which I adore, but which are focused on adult literature. What I like about Forever Young Adult is the informal style and frequent reviews of new books I might not otherwise hear about - the book blogs I know of are more focused on author interviews or commentary, and tend to take themselves more seriously than I would like.

If I like reading The Last Psychiatrist, what else would I like?

I love the Last Psychiatrist. I don't agree with everything she writes--but I like a lot of things about her. I like that she combines deep knowledge with hand-wavey speculation. I like that she's a fearless contrarian. I like that she's funny. I want to read more writing about society, science, the arts, whatever, that's as toothy as the stuff she does. This can be in book, magazine, or blog format. Where do I go?

I want to go deeper, IYKWIM

I would love to read an LGBT blog that's more substantive than the usual fare of today's politics and pop culture. It could cover all kinds of topics, as long as it was through an LGBT lens. Ideal would be The Toast's LGBT posts with more male and genderqueer voices (but no less feminist). A close second would be something like Ta-Nehisi Coates' blog, written by someone queer.
