Some blogs I know

  • Freckles and Doubt
    Considering her mastery of narrative structure etc. (insert narrative structure here.....)
  • Trailer Park Refugee | just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight….
    Just three shots of tequila away from a bar fight...
  • Exile on Pain Street | Straddling the Hudson River. One foot in NYC, the other in suburban New Jersey.
    One man's story, etc.....
  • Fat Man on a Keyboard
    'At first they came for the smokers but I did not speak out as I did not smoke. Then they came for the binge drinkers but I said nothing as I did not binge. Now they have an obesity strategy...'
  • New York Bike Blog
  • Belgian Waffle
    Prolific? Bien sur. Waffle? Not a bit of it. The best thing to come out of Belgium since Leffe Blonde, and that is saying something.
  • Non-working monkey
    'Why taking work seriously turns you into a cock', among other lifesavingly important career advice.
  • Razorblade of life
    'Not so much cutting-edge as half-cut and still sliding'...
  • blue cat
    This blue cat fellow (he writes for the telly you know) issues forth an apparently effortless stream of grade-A funniness that has me overcome in turns by helpless laughter and shameful, powerful envy. There I've said it.
  • Joella
    Joella in Oxfordshire. Working for The Man while training to be a plumber (I think!). Loves gherkins, hates aubergines... and Fascists.
  • Bushra
    Bushra's blog/ homepage/ call it what you want
  • Dubsteps (formerly Hobo Tread)
    Thoughts of Skif, a Havant and Waterlooville fan exiled in Liverpool- possibly the most engaging non-league football writing to be found on the web- and with a little bit of politics, and plenty more beside!
  • Tired Dad
    The Man Who Very Nearly Fell Asleep
  • troubled diva.
    Mike, the self-styled 'Fairy Godmother of British Blogging'. He got us all published in a book, you know...
  • Private Secret Diary
    Dispatches from deepest Norfolk. Not that private and not that secret. Just consistently hilarious.
  • The man who fell asleep; Sadness and ecstasy in unequal measures
    The book inspired by this veteran site (A Year in the life of The Man Who Fell Asleep) features the 'sarcastic polar bears of north London' among other oddities that the author manages somehow to render absolutely plausible.
  • Pete Ashton's Internet Presence
    Birmingham's finest. Writing with enviable clarity on every subject under the sun since 2000 (a very long time indeed!). Now with added nice pictures of canals and stuff...
  • Looby
    'An awkward, clumsy fellow; a lubber; a novice'....a venerated (if refreshingly irreverent) blogging institution. Lancaster's very finest!
  • RichardHerring.com
    The comedian Richard Herring's kind of online diary thing. Always worth a visit.

Oh, great - two more fine blogs to add to the list. Maybe I should just give up the day job and be a full-time blog reader... ;-)


I know what you mean about people's ignorance of weblogs, I get that as well.


Telling someone you're blogging is a bit like coming out isn't it? You're never sure how peple are going to take it and it involves quite a lot of trust.

Er...I'm not gay - I'm just imagining that it must be the same sort of thing.


That's funny Looby because I was just thinking exactly the same thing! I remember Mike at Troubled Diva (it was in one of his forty-in-forty stories which I am sure you will have read, and if not, well you should..) saying about how he at one time in adolescence had this ridiculous list of 'Those Who Knew' which he actually kept in his back pocket and would get out and consult surreptitiously. When I suppose a lot more people know whether you want them to or not- and maybe a lot of them don't care quite as much as you think! I have the same kind of ridiculous attitude towards Crinklybee, without the excuse of being 15 years old. Precious, is the word you are looking for (and I borrowed that entire sentence off Mike as well...)


I think you convince yourself that writing a blog isn't at all self-indulgent and vain, and then get reminded that it is by the looks on people's faces when you tell them you've got one (after explaining what it is...). Precious is exactly the right word, too.


Thanks for the support Crinklybee and more importantly
thanks for introducing me to the wonderfully exciting
world of blogging. How thrilling is it when you check out your Blog and see you have 3 comments or discover you have had 82 visitors?
I'm off now to buy 'eats shoots and leaves' to improve my grandma.
