Whenever I read blogs, I feel like writing. I’m not necessarily inspired to write anything specific. I just want to write. This is a side effect of reading good writing, I think; I always feel like this after reading a well written novel.
I read a mishmash of blogs: some fashion, some beauty, some political, some cats. Though it’s advised to add photos to your blog posts, I don’t care unless the post revolves around a photo (like Wordless Wednesdays) or needs the photos to show something (like the latest Marc by Marc Jacobs bag I will drool all over and covet).
Honestly, my favorite blogs are focused on the writing, like In 10 Words. This blog is genius: he posts a photo and captions it hilariously in 10 words. The blog would be nothing without the words, just another photo blog.
My other favorite blogs include:
The Beauty Bohemian. As the name suggests, this is mainly a beauty blog but she does a nice mix of fashion posts, too. Blogger Mira Torres’ voice is friendly and conversational without trying too hard to be your best buddy.
Vulture. This blog is kind of a toss-up. It’s the entertainment blog of NY Mag and written by at least a couple of different people. But generally, they have a snarky tone and write about things from a different point of view – like Ten Album Titles Culled From Kanye’s Twitter That Are Better Than My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. [I need to remember to get this album.]
Punch Debt In The Face. Ninja, the writer, is simply hilarious. For such a dry topic as finance, he manages jokes and informality. His posts are always good for at least one LOL.
Digitizd. You know, I’m not so sure why I like Digitzd. It’s a good blog but some of the topics aren’t relatable to me. But I still check the RSS feed every day. It must be David Pierce’s writing style. He makes technology stuff easy to understand and it’s like reading the email of an easy-goingÂ friend.
Redheaded Writing. Erica Napoletano is who I want to be in my thirties: fearless, confident, honest. She’ll give you her opinion whether or not it’s a popular one. I’m opinionated but I keep silent most of the time in fear of offending or upsetting. One day, I’ll get over this and hope I’m as bad ass as Erica.
Fabulously Broke in the City / The Everyday Minimalist. Two blogs written by the same woman. I don’t know how she manages near-daily posts for two blogs that are thought out and detailed. Her posts are informative, thought-provoking, and laugh out loud funny.
Frock & Roll. Both fashion and lifestyle, this blog has a great joie de vivre Â and excitement I haven’t found anywhere else.
Of course I have more favorite blogs. These are just the ones that rely mainly on words and can survive without any pictures at all.
What are your favorite blogs, based on writing style?
