Today, it seems, is Blog Day, wherein if you have a blog you are supposed to recommend five blogs that you think people should read. Of course, this is kind of the point of a blogroll in the first place, and I heartily endorse every blog on that right-side toolbar as being an entertaining and/or informative read (and usually both).
But here are five more blogs I recommend anyway.
The Impulsive Buy – a website devoted mostly to product reviews of the stuff you see every day around you (new junk food, novelty products in supermarkets and Wal-Mart and the like, et cetera). Very funny, frequently insightful, and the digressions are choice.
Cherryflava – a South African blog devoted to, well, all things South African re: culture and the like. Clever, witty, and regularly updated.
From The Archives – a blog by a career science bureaucrat that varies from entertaining personal trivia to even-more entertaining spitfights with libertarians from someone who actually understands the purpose and actual (as opposed to imagined) pitfalls of large government, as well as the benefits and justification thereof.
[daily dose of imagery] – my favorite photoblog. The only photoblog from wherein I have created wallpaper for my desktop. (And I love the site design.)
Angry Bear – because you know what I like? Graphs. Lots of graphs. With commentary explaining the graphs. And why the graphs are important. If you love graphs, you will love Angry Bear.
