What Blogs do you read.

Postby James » 07 Jul 2008, 00:49

So i have been meaning to post this for a couple days now, and with the fact that it is 1:30 in the morning and I can't sleep i finally decided now would be a good time.

So the question is pretty simple. What blogs do you read on a daily/weekly or even monthly basis? And when i say blog I mean pretty much anything. It can be our blog, a tech related blog, news related blog, or even a personal blog that is interesting enough to come back to on a regular basis.

I will start us off with in order what is listed within my Google Reader* setup.

TECH RELATED
iPhone World - www.iphoneworld.ca
Apple Insider - www.appleinsider.com
Gizmodo - www.gizmodo.com
[H]ardOCP - www.hardocp.com
Lifehacker - www.lifehacker.com
Engadget - www.engadget.com
VIDEO GAME RELATED
Evil Avatar - www.evilavatar.com
Joystiq - www.joystiq.com
Kotaku - www.kotaku.com
WoW Insider - www.wowinsider.com
SCI-FI RELATED
io9 - www.io9.com
PHOTOGRAPHY RELATED
Complete Digital Photography - www.completedigitalphotography.com
Ken Rockwell - www.kenrockwell.com
Camera Labs - www.cameralabs.com
Digital Photography Review - www.dpreview.com
WORLD NEWS
CBC News Feed - www.cbc.ca
NYT (New York Times) News Feed - www.nytimes.com

So my hope is you guys find a blog in that list that interests you and you link a bunch of blogs other people might be able to discover for the first time. I am always looking for new blogs to read on a daily basis.

I check [H]ardOCP several times a day even got my PS3 folding for them :)

I go to Blu-ray.com (I am a big Blu-ray fan)

http://formatwarcentral.com/ some articles are good some I think go too far but again it relates to the format war between HD DVD and Blu-ray.

http://www.highdefdiscnews.com/ yet another Blu-ray blog :p it was originally for both formats but we all know how that turned out...

http://www.winxperts.net/portal/ they are not only a technology blog, but also a forum, discuss just about anything technical related :)

I read Lifehacker on a daily basis when I'm in school. Not so much when I'm not.

Daily I read http://threespeach.com which is a semi official Sony Computer Entertainment Europe blog and http://blog.us.playstation.com which is the Official Sony Computer Entertainment America blog.

Whenever my RSS feeds update I will read the CBC Radio 3 blog, the CBC top news stories, the Media Molecule blog (makers of Little Big Planet), Giant Bomb.com, and the Pure Pwnage blog.

I used to read a blog written by a Edmonton Taxt driver, but google "updated" blogspot, and now it won't load in my browser of choice. I get to the "this blog may contain inapropriate blah blah blah", click continue and it just loads the "this blog may contain inapropriate blah blah blah" page again. I really did enjoy the blog for it's amazing and crazy stories, but I'm not going to use a different browser than the one I use for every other thing I do on hte internet just to use 1 site. Anyway, that blog was/is http://myfares.blogspot.com

Yeah, I love reading your blog. My only issue is: wha'hahpin to the LRR desk feature? Start cranking them out please! Also, I think aside from the videos and said desk posts, you could also write up some other stuff. We like hearing your stories. At least I do, cuz you guys also happen to be the only podcast I listen to.

I check your blog every time I check my webcomics list, I.E. way, way too often. You should update more, so that obsessive fans like me can read it more. Also, if I had worked as many hours as I have listened to old podcasts in the last two weeks, I'd be a rich man.

Most of the blogs I read tend to be from comic book writers, for some reason, with a couple of game designers and authors thrown in (and of course LRR's blog):

Neil Gaiman (of course) http://neilgaiman.com
Len Wein http://www.lenwein.blogspot.com
Marv Wolfman http://www.marvwolvman.com/todaysviews.html
Mark Evanier http://www.newsfromme.com
Aaron Williams (PS238 + Nodwick comics) http://nodwick.humor.gamespy.com/index.htm
Ron Gilbert http://grumpygamer.com

I used to read Steve Gerber's blog, but he died. :(

I end up reading my own blogs as much as anything:

http://crummysocks.com, http://closeoutwarrior.com, and http://pushbuttonb.com

Other than that I tend to hit Slashdot, [H]ard|OCP, and most of the major gaming blogs, but I particularly like SPOnG and Gamers With Jobs. I also check out the LRR blog when I remember it's there.

Gizmodo, BoingBoing, sometimes Kotaku, and...that's pretty much it. But I'll look up any geek-related blogs that are posted here, because God knows I don't waste my time enough.
