My New Favorite Blog

I’m sure you’re familiar with this phenomena: every once in a while you’ll scroll through your iPod with its 10, 20, 80, 160 gigs of music or whatever, and you won’t find anything that sparks you at that moment. 10,000 songs and nothing jumps out at you. Certainly there’s some great stuff in there, but every so often, we all need a wakeup call – something bold and new. Well, that’s me right now, only with blogs. I’m in need of something to snap me out of this little rut I’m in.

Therefore, I’d like to humbly call on the power of this community to throw me a few bones. (Turns out that this is a great 2.0 nod that will benefit us all, and such things have been helpful in the past…) Simply put, I’d love to know what you’re reading online. Photography, art, film, design, music, popular culture, or anything related – it all qualifies. Take 20 seconds and–in the comments section below–please post a link, a review, a name, a sentence, two words, whatever – something, anything about your favorite blog(s), so that I can make your favorite(s) my new favorite(s). You can post anonymously or under your blogger name, no matter. This is not an exercise in pretentiousness or obscurity – everything has merit. I promise to visit each sincere link that gets posted here and I’ll heap lavish amounts of praise (and perhaps a t-shirt and maybe even a pair of shoes ;) upon whomever turns me onto a new favorite nugget that’s not already in my RSS reader.

Thanks in advance for your time.

[And, btw if you're into this sort of thing, you might want to consider ticking that little box in the comments section below that pings you via email ("Email follow-up comments to...") when this post receives comments.]

    You should read Neatorama:

    http://feeds.feedburner.com/Neatorama

    It’s just a blog about random stuff around the world. I hope you enjoy it!

    P.S. I saw you at NYC at the PhotoShelter event. It was really inspiring.

    http://music.tumblr.com

    It’s a music tumble blog that has free high quality songs with links itunes links if you like the artist and want to buy more. It is bare bones, no comments, just free music.

    Enjoy.

    Disclaimer, I do not run the site but I know who does, his main blog is at http://ericrice.com

    A couple in my RSS reader that are on the design side of things:

    http://infosthetics.com/ – Highlights various infographics found on the internet and in print. Points to some really cool data visualisations.

    http://www.37signals.com/svn/ – Signal vs Noise over at 37 Signals. Some nice conversations about design and usability. Occasional photography post.

    DIY:

    LifeHacker – hopefully you’re already got that one.

    http://www.hackaday.com/ – Random gadgets = awesome.

    http://www.makezine.com/blog/ – Will clog up your RSS reader really quickly if you’re not careful, but they have some really great stuff.

    And then a bunch of photography ones that you will already have:
    Strobist, A Photo Editor, Photojojo, FSTOP Magazine, Behind the Camera (http://www.behindthecamera.info/) and a bunch more.

    If I get bored I normally head to reddit or digg, or the Strobist group on Flickr.

    Hi Chase, I know how you feel — I get into the same ruts with my reading material. There are a few, however, that I’m alway excited to read on a daily basis.

    digital Photography School
    JMG-Galleries
    Kwerfeldein

    If the feeds are letting me down, sometimes I’ll head to photographyVoter and skim through the popular articles.

    And of course, don’t forget to check out the Epic Edits Weblog. Yeah it’s mine, but I still think it rocks.

    Here is a short selection of my favorites:
    David Pogue’s posts are always fun to read and presenting technology can be a form of entertainment as well:
    http://www.davidpogue.com/davidpogue_rss.xml

    These are some Photography blogs, I like. Tips from the top floor is mostly on the technical side on things, but fun as it is done by a fellow German in English.
    http://www.tipsfromthetopfloor.com/wp-rss2.php

    I just like looking at pictures by Jasmine Star. Simply nice pictures, nothing too overdone.
    http://jasminestarblog.com/rss/

    When I discovered Mike Colon’s webpage, I got really inspired by what is possible by just using a camera and a good lens.

  9. Kevin Knight November 4, 2007 at 10:31 pm #

    Blogs I read all the time:
    I don’t read a lot of blogs that people her haven’t already posted, but I listen to a lot of podcast while I work.

    http//www.KeithandTheGirl.com – I have been listening for a few years now. Prob. the funniest podcast out there

    http://www.crankcast.net – The Podcast about nothing.. and comic books

    http://www.quickstopentertainment.com/?p=5536 – Smodcast – Kevin Smith has a podcast.. Kevin Smith tells stories about life in Jersey and tales of the past..

    Like everyone, I have a blog too.. http://www.TheSHutterClick.com

  10. Geoff Wilson November 4, 2007 at 10:34 pm #

    Also, two great photoblogs:

  11. meester smeeth November 4, 2007 at 11:44 pm #

    Favourite photoblogs for me include http://www.chromasia.com (obviously…) and http://www.myglasseye.net, while in terms of actual regular bloggage I love http://www.daringfireball.net, which to be honest is mostly a collection of Mac-related stuff as well as some of his own opinion, which I enjoy.

  12. David Bornfriend November 4, 2007 at 11:45 pm #

    Not sure if Brenton was referring to “the F Stop Magazine” or “F Stop the magazine” – either way

    http://www.thefstopmag.com

    http://www.yewknee.com/blog/ – great blog about music, design, and culture by a guy I only know by name through a friend of a friend. Has a monthly Music mix you can download – current one is still Halloween mix “Et Tu, Morte?” (look under the search box on the right).

    He started a great contest, check out the “about” section – http://www.moustachemay.com/

    And this one for when I’m totally stressed and need a laugh –
    http://www.overheardinnewyork.com/

    I don’t remember where I found this one, and I don’t even really know what to say except that I never knew analyzing and dissecting the cultural context of an image could be so funny -

    And thank you for your blog! It’s refreshing and inspiring to read.

    Well yours obviously, Various RSS feeds (Now in Mac Mail), Digg (not a blog but great for info) Macbytes., BBC. Nikonians.Org. etc

    I generally subscribe to more podcasts than Blogs… I find that I can catch up faster & multi task with podcasts more than blogs. In the main I prefer tech, photography , Mac and Interview type podcasts, how to do i guess and some for inspiration, (yep yours).

    If I was to choose only one blog to recommend as a must it would have to be

    Free albums. Great music. Unsigned bands and some famous artists. Free: my favourite price.

    Check out my favorite blog and podcast (except from this one ;-)
    http://www.mulita.com/blog/
    It’s George Jardine, one of the developers of Adobe Lightroom, he has an podcast called adobe lightroom and a blog where he talks to different photographers about the art of ´taking a good picture, Althougth it’s not always about my kind of photography it always keeps me stuck to the computer or ipod listening to good intelligent discussions.

    Hope you will like it

    Wil Wheaton’s blog
    He’s a witty writer, geek, actor, parent, poker player and of course ex-Star Trek most hated character.

    His blog is typically fun and funny, with a touch of touching.

    http://wilwheaton.typepad.com/wwdnbackup/

    Andrew Hetherington’s blog is also worth a read. Has that European lack of pretense that’s always refreshing

    Martin Andreasen has some good work on his blog.

    Brooks Blog has a lot of good portrait setups – although he could definitely stand to post more often.

    Andy Bell is a master of color and composition.

    In the design side of things-

    Sleevage showcases the best new album artwork, often with interviews with the designers.

    I used to be an avid reader of this blog called lies.com:

    http://lies.com

    It gives very in depth insights into some of the political issues going ’round. Sometimes a wee bit complicated (especially for a non-native English speaking European like myself) but it can really tie your head in knots on occasion (but good knots).

    It may drain some creative juices but as voters this is what me must endure on occasion. Also the writer of the blog is clearly a liberal so you may need to balance out the articles with other sources of information (democracy 2.0!)

    Much like Amazon.com’s user reviews and ratings, we’re looking to populate the user reviews section of this web site, to help users make better photographic purchases based on the advice and comments of fellow photographers.

    If you’d like to write a brief review for any equipment you’ve used, we’d really appreciate it. All you have to do is visit PDNGearGuide.com, click on Buyer’s Guide and log on to leave a user review for any of the items listed in the Buyer’s Guide section. And please pass this message along!

    I don’t know if these are good enough to win a T-Shirt, but maybe you’ll send me your shoes Chase.

    I love these two sites for these reasons:

    noimpactman.com

    This awesome expirement in human nature as a guy and his family live for a year with the intention of creating as little global impact as possible… in Manhattan. His blog is almost a daily thing, but it ranges between a blurb about frustrations, to a topic in great detail about appreciation of life and the great ways to live it to it’s fullest. He’s full of inspiration in the sense of pointing things out to me I never would have thought about without reading his blog. I think you’ll like it. It gets the thoughts rolling, and he’s funny and creative.

    The other one I like (and I’m not sure it’s a blog) But I subscribe to the:

    visualthesaurus.com

    and being a visual person, I really think it’s fun. They have an e-mail every day with a new random word and it’s meaning. I try to use the new word, as my word of the day. Ok, it’s really funnier than it sounds. I’ve got the whole office in on it. Try it out. It’s been a site that has also helped me with my creative thinking for personal work through word associations, and shooting for stock. I think you’ll like it.

    especially the article in the music section called: “Music to watch Rothko by” is insightful. I’m still waiting for an article titled “Music to accompany a keynote address”. All other sections (art, books, film, radio/tv) provide tons of great articles also

  77. Chase Jarvis November 7, 2007 at 2:19 pm #

    Hiya Friends. Wow. This is one helluva list we’ve got going here. Just a note to let you know that I’m tuned in (albeit from Chile and now Buenos Aires Argentina…with a very slow internet connection) and making good on my word to check out every link that’s not already on my radar.

    Firstly, I’m blown away. This is such an absolute treat to hear from so many of you. I’m floored with the abundant generosity of those of you who are sharing. In addition to inspiring me, this post will now officially server as a kick ass reference for a long time to come.

    Second, Thank you thank you.

    Third, now back to reading…. I’ll be back in the US tomorrow with another update!

  78. Chase Jarvis November 7, 2007 at 2:42 pm #

    One follow up tidbit: Since many of you are commenting on podcasts here, it occured to me that buried in here, amongst the core CJ blog community, it makes sense (and makes me happy) to give you an advance notice, INSIDE SCOOP: we have an iTunes video podcast–available for download immediately–in both ipod/iphone resolution and appleTV resolution.

    Chase Jarvis iTunes Video Podcast for iPod/iPhone.

    Chase Jarvis iTunes Video Podcast for AppleTV.

    We’ve had it up for a short while for testing and what not, and many of you have discovered it already and shared it with friends before we could (encouraged…)!! You’ve also, apparently, been downloading like mad (our host gave us a ring ;) , but it seems to be whizzing along nicely.

    So there will be a blog entry about this soon, but consider this an unofficial leak for anyone willing to read 80 comments into a post. (In true 2.0 style, of course, feel free to leak it some more). There’s even a movie there that hasn’t been released ;) More soon.

    Thank you, thank you.

  79. James Quantz Jr. November 7, 2007 at 4:06 pm #

    Chase,

    I have to share this incredibly inspirational youtube video. I’m not sure if you’ve come across it but I think it can only enhance the “CJ community”.

    I had a friend with the same issue as Ken. I sent them here:

    Probably not worthy of many of your readers, but a small blog journal of my returning to amateur photography – http://shutter-fug.blogspot.com/ – it’s a bit of a mess of technical stuff and minor experiences which will also end up with me documenting my first small local exhibition in Feb next year (yay!) – it’s a bit quiet ’cause I’ve just mvoed house and plan on chilling over December.

    I like what you’re doing/message your giving the community.
