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?
I subscribe to a lot of feeds via Google Reader. Whenever I use the search function, I get incomplete results, even if I narrow the search to only starred items, for example. How can I get Reader to show all items that match my search? I use Windows and Firefox.

I'm looking for blogs about homekeeping (cleaning, organizing, keeping up on housework, design/decorating, and that sort of thing with maybe some cooking or gardening thrown in). I like Unfuck Your Habitat and I used to read Apartment Therapy before moving into my own house. Are there any other blogs out there that offer inspiration/motivation to keep up with housework and/or design ideas? I'm very DIY and craft-oriented, and appreciate frugal living ideas, too, so blogs that incorporate those things are good, too.

I used to be really into the mashup scene, but in recent years I've really fallen behind and only have one or two blogs that I'm following that don't really post new things that often.

I'd like to know what he's doing now.

Looking for blogs that are thought-provoking, light-hearted, and short-winded. Examples: Futility Closet, Colossal, Said the Gramophone. No linkblogs. Nothing cynical/polemical. Few posts per day. I prefer distinct focuses and subjects to meandering, text and thoughts to images and video (though media supported by text is fine if the media's brief enough). I like learning new things, but again, I want short, light reads – posts I can read in two minutes tops.

Suggest me some blogs to use for class. I don't read blogs so I'm looking for something interesting that has more of a personal touch.

If you're not sure it'll work for my assignment, please post anyway! Bonus: there was some guy who went off and lives in the wilderness for 30 days and blogged about it -- Anyone know who this is? I remember my someone telling me about it but can't for the life of me remember details or if that was even the scenario.

Help my google foo is failing me! I recall coming across a blog about a year ago. The writer was cooking all kinds of things using almond butter. I believe that was the entire focus of the blog: almond butter. I don't recall it being linked to any of the recipe sites or to any almond butter maker. I had the impression she just loves almond butter. But, I cannot find it again. Does anyone else recall a blog like this?
