I’m kind of embarrassed to tell you how many blogs I subscribe to in Google Reader (OK, OK, it’s 133), but the point is, there’s a lot of good stuff out there on the internet these days. Here are my Top 5 favorite blogs of the moment with a post from each to get you started.
A Cup of Jo
Joanna Goddard runs a lovely blog from her hometown in NYC. She covers fashion & beauty, home & design, food & drink, travel, relationships and parenthood and sort of acts as a curator of all things awesome. I look forward to her posts every single day. She also has an awesome Pinterest account.
Tracy Benjamin runs one of the best foodblogs on the web, no doubt. Her recipes run the gamut, from juices and delicious-looking cocktails to healthy dinners and sinful desserts. If you’re a fan of Joy the Baker, then you’ll recognize Tracy from their podcast. As a bonus, Tracy also takes gorgeous pictures.
How Sweet It Is
Jessica is totally ridiculous in the absolute best way. The things she comes up with, guys… I can’t even begin. I often find myself staring at her pictures with my mouth hanging open, usually with drool dripping down my chin. She’s hilarious, and her recipes are awesome.
Penelope Trunk’s Brazen Careerist
As a shrewd businesswoman with Asperger’s, Penelope Trunk never bothers sugarcoating anything, whether it’s doling out career advice or occasionally revealing personal details of her life. Not only is she utterly fascinating, she’s often absolutely spot on. Her posts aren’t always easy to swallow, but they do provide plenty of food for thought.
This isn’t exactly a blog, but it is a webcomic and one of the best on the net. Guaranteed to make you laugh, think and sometimes scratch your head in perplexion. New comics every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. (Don’t forget the mouse-over.)
