Guys!

Big favor to ask you all!

I am working on our directory content & looking for blogs and other feeds I can add to our directory.

These can be any kinds of blogs or feeds that you enjoy, from anywhere. Or if you'd like me to include your personal LJ or blog (just so long as it's not a friends-only-only LJ because then none of the posts will show up), please let me know and I will add you.

I'm especially looking for people who have separate public art blogs, photo blogs, writing blogs, etc. Or if you read a really great personal blog (stuff from up & coming writers, artists and musicians would be super), those would be awesome, too.

ETA: DeviantArt galleries count!

But basically anything you read or that someone you know reads that uses RSS= awesome.

Thanks!

PS for those of you who are curious about my workplace, we have a new game. This new game involves a miniature football. Rules:

1) pick up football.
2) call someone's name like you need something from them.
3) lob football.
4) either applaud because they caught it or laugh at their misfortune when it hits them in the face.
5) football is now in the hands of your victim. it it their turn.

PPS, missbadexample, your CD is in the mail!

PPPS RIP quizzicalsphinx's beloved lost friend as she goes bravely marching into anaesthetized battle.
O! Radiant as a summer day,
You were no match for tooth decay.

gibsonfeed (William Gibson's blog) and catandgirl (the webcomic 'Cat and Girl') are the two RSS feeds I follow on LJ.

A few other blogs that I look in on from time to time:
Candy Blog, which has fun reviews of candy from all over the world, Geoffrey Chaucer Hath a Blog, and Pixel Surgeon, which is a review site for films/books/music/etc, although possibly not a blog.

habeasbrulee is my favorite food blog (I hope that tag works correctly). If you go to www.habeasbrulee.com you will also find links to lots of other amazing food blogs. Since I'm hungry at the moment, I'm having a one-track mind.

Sweet, thanks!

Right now user subscriptions don't appear in the directory; I have to put them in the directory manually although people can read them if they search by tags. It's way counterintuitive and I'm trying to get it fixed. But I will stick them in.

Blogs I read regurally:

Bitch phd: http://bitchphd.blogspot.com/
Dean Dad: http://suburbdad.blogspot.com/
Peter David: http://peterdavid.malibulist.com/


Interesting lj people:

I know there's more. I'll try to remember them as I check them, since I don't have any sort of list.

And you can add my lj, because it is just that nifty.

My alternate blog for Japan stuff is:

http://texantransplanted.blogspot.com

Now and again I also read:

http://www.neilgaiman.com/journal/
http://www.gofugyourself.com

I like how you asked for blogs about art/photos and stuff and all I read is celebrity trash/gossip...

http://www.thesuperficial.com
http://www.wwtdd.com
http://www.idontlikeyouinthatway.com


The only one I'm not sure about having a feed is wwtdd. But I don't really feeds in general so I'm not positive. o.O Hope that was at least moderately useful...

I am totally adding your Japan blog.

I'll add the rest of these that I haven't got yet!

These are, out of the webcomics that I read that haven't been mentioned yet, the ones that have a functioning rss feed and update fairly frequently.

Here's this cool comic battle thing. It's neat.

And here's my friend's deviantart, if you want to add that sort of thing as well.

Hope this helps a bit. :)

deviant art galleries are super! Thank you!

I second lifehacker - it is amazing.

And if you link to them and bug them enough they might write a feature about you. Thus instant popularity.

Here are some of the feeds I have on my google reader. It's a mix of news, entertainment, photography, and web design. I also read postsecret every week, but I don't have the feed for them.

Ah... my deviantart is http://asdzaan-naadaa.deviantart.com

I guess I'll give you that. I'm not sure it's good enough for a directory or anything, but have at it.
