Blogs you love?

I'm always seeking to expand my little Netvibes page with things to keep me amused during the day. Subject matter isn't as important as being witty and fresh.

Topics I do particularly like include books (ex. Bookslut), food (Eater), all things New York (Gawker, Gothamist), lifehacks (well, Lifehacker), trashy celebrity goodness (Go Fug Yourself), and just assorted random links (Fark-style).

Hit me up with some more to keep me busy!

I have a small collection of cool linkblogs on my web site. I would recommend Ursi's Blog, which leans toward art/photography & games links, Geisha Asobi Blog for wacky Japanese goodness and Jaf Project is amusingly eclectic.

Dooce. She is just all around entertaining and fantastic.

Waiter Rant Hilarious rants of a waiter

Post Secret Anonymous postcards of secrets

Mighty Goods Excellent shopping blog with unique items featured almost daily.

Oh No They Didn't! A great livejournal community teeming with celebrity gossip. I find this site is always ahead of the game with breaking gossip. (You don't need to be a livejournal member to read!)

The new and improved Gawker Stalker which is now using Google Maps (is the best!) to track celebrity sightings all over New York. I don't even live there and I love it.

Stereogum for music and its related gossipy goodness.

We Make Money, Not Art is a fantastic futurist tech blog.

If you happen to want the Gizmodo editor OPML, I'm more than happy to dish. It's about 250 news, tech and assorted other gems put together by folks who care about that sort of thing.

Email is in profile.

You Ain't No Picasso is good for indie rock. Ditto Gorilla vs. Bear.

I really like Bibi's box. Her blog includes a little of everything but she really shines when it comes to finding neat retro art, illustrations pin-ups, etc.

I asked about funny blogs here and got lots of good suggestions. This thread asked about 'best web writing' for inclusion in a book (disclaimer of sorts: my stuff was chosen to be included in the book, but it never happened. Bummer), and has some great sites mentioned.

I also like amalah. She's a young mother blogging about her social life, her infertilty (before baby obviously), her pregnancy, and now her life after the baby. Funny, poignant and real.
