Thoughtful trans/queer/identity politics blogs

I'm looking for thoughtful, thought-provoking blogs (and books, I guess) covering topics like queer theory, trans/gender theory, identity politics, and maybe related activism. Transmasculine/masculine of center/FTM topics especially welcome. Extreme academic jargon is not a turn-off. A few additional notes inside. [more inside]

Blog Design Best Practices, Column and Width Edition

Current blog design best practices. I'm redesigning my 2-year-old food blog. This is strictly a DIY affair, and any knowledge I have of blog design was arrived at by hours of googling and crying. So, you know, I am big on ideas, but don't have much official knowledge about design. A few specific questions about columns and page size inside... [more inside]

What are some blogs that spotlight Etsy art?

Are there blogs that catalogue great finds on Etsy? I have been searching the official Etsy blog, but are there others? Beyond blogs, do you recommend great Etsy artists who can spruce up the walls of my new office where I'm training as a therapist? I've seen these questions and have followed many of their links.

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. What's out there? [more inside]

Tall Skinny Font Seeks Perfect Mate...

Let's get this out of the way: I really know nothing about graphic design or fonts. I have a blog, and my blog title is in Strangelove Next Narrow font. The blog is about a pretty lighthearted subject matter, and the title uses multiple bright colors for the letters and looks pretty playful. (I don't want to link it, so you'll have to take my word for it. It's fun.) I want to add a tagline near the blog title in my header, and I'm stumped as to what font I should use...help?

I just want to look at pictures of other people's hair

Seagull Salon in NYC has a tumblr on which they post photos of some (most? all?) of the clients who come through the salon to get their hair cut, dyed, or styled. This seems like such an obviously great idea - not only has it taught me about lots of new hair trends, it gives me a chance to see what these super creative styles look like on real people. If I were ever in the market for a NYC haircut, I'd feel confident going to Seagull. But for some reason, I've had trouble finding other blogs like this: my results are clogged by hair salon websites and individually run blogs full of tutorials and photos of celebrities and such. Do you know of any other salons that do this? They don't have to be the same genre of hairstyle as Seagull; I just want to look at lots of un-retouched photos of other people's haircuts.

Is it worthwhile registering/adding a domain name to my Wordpress blog?

I've been publishing a blog for a couple of years on Wordpress. Whenever I log into the dashboard, I'm informed that my domain "is available to be registered and added to your blog. (You can use it as your blog address.)" support page on domains is here. Are there any drawbacks to registering it? Will all the widgets work the same way? Will my SEO be effected? Will my wordpress followers still be subscribed? What else should I consider? It's a small blog updated with a couple lengthy posts each week; about 300 subscribers and 500 page views per day.

Best system for an online, ongoing office "discussion"

Scenario: Office employees need to be able to log into a system and post opinions/comments on a daily basis for a period of 10 days. These need to be threaded and in response to a prompting question or two each time. Employees should be able to read thru other comments and look back thru older threads. I know there's a gazillion forum systems, and blog alternatives. Do you have a recommendation on which particular system would be best? I do not need a lot of features beyond what's described above. Most blog features would not be used. Not a public (ie. Facebook) type system. Bonus points for: ~ Clean, easy, pleasing, spare interface. ~ Back end tracking by user. ~ Easy install. Thanks!

What blogs focus on new technologies?

I am looking for a list of blogs that concentrate on a subject matter similar to the "87 cool things" presentation from google creative labs (slideshare link here). I keep seeing things like the Tupac hologram or arduino-controlled light or even stuff like the nike chalkbot and wonder what blogs to look out for technical possibilities over a wide area. I am aware of gizmodo, laughing squid and boingboing, all of which do these things every now and then but not all the time. Thanks for your input!

RSS reader that sends emails

I've used some RSS readers in the past (Google Reader, Feedburner, etc.) but haven't in many years, so I'm unsure of what's out there and what will do what I want. It's pretty simple - I'd like to receive daily emails with the full text of every blog post in the blogs I subscribe to. Ideally it will be a clean, easy-to-read email, and iPhone friendly.

Going out for a blog

I've been looking for good blogs about running, lately. I've found a lot of shoe-review sites, and a few gear-review sites, but I'm interested in general motivational stories of people's training, race reports, that sort of thing. Google hasn't been very helpful, so I figured I'd ask Mefi. What blogs do you like to read about running?
