I recently read that Technorati tracked its 50 millionth blog and there’s an incredible number of new electronic journal started every day.
That can be a big and scary thing…which is why BlogDay is such a great idea.
According to BlogDay.org (BlogDay’s official home), BlogDay began in the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to exploring the blogosphere and discover and recommend, to their readers, other authors and electronic journals.
Thanks so much to Paz and Ellie for letting me know about this great day.
Picking five blogs to spotlight was difficult—not that I couldn’t find new-to-me blogs, but to narrow things down. I also tried my best to not have an overwhelming number of foodblogs on the list. I was good. Only two of my five are food bloggers. You may be familiar with them already (I always assume I’m the last to find out about cool and neat things), but if not, I hope you have a chance to visit these sites.

For those of you who like SF, this one’s for you. Written by Andrew Wheeler, Senior Editor of the (US) Science Fiction Book Club, he mixes work (all those books that cross his desk) with life (his kids (Thing One and Thing Two)) and interesting things he finds on the web…check out his book-a-day posts.
Yes, I’m a Coronation Street fan. And yes, it’s so tempting to find out what will be appearing on my TV in eight or 10 months. I like this Corrie site because it’s not all spoilers—there are interesting bits on the actors (past and present) along with weird little bits of Weatherfield-related news.
Okay, we all love Rachel and her Coconut and Lime blog. But her new blog, Food Maven, is more than recipes…it’s funny, conversational and lets more of this wonderful blogger’s personality shine through.
What happens when you have a doctor review comic books and medical television shows? Well…you get a very educated look at all that medical mumbo jumbo thrown in as plot points. It appeals to the nit-picky side of me…check out his episode-by-episode House break-downs.
This is a new favourite of mine. Veuve Cliquot is a funny, genuine person who blogs about life from a foodie point of view…did I mention she’s trying to kick the sugar habit? I personally love reading her posts about dating…
