The following are all highly recommended.
- A Dress A Day. Lexicographer Eric McKean, coiner of the term fauxlero, shows off her favourite dresses: mostly vintage, occasionally runway, but with a strong DIY sensibility.
- The Hathor Legacy. Regular skewering of film, TV, and advertising for their constant anti-feminist messages. Less ranty and more readable than you’d think.
- 101 cookbooks wins the prize for “food blog most likely to actually make me salivate”. Weird visual aside, I think Heidi’s tastebuds and mine may have been separated at birth. Mostly whole grains, fresh vegies, and an international flavour.
- Brooklyn Tweed. By far my favourite knitting blog. Jared’s photography is beautiful and I want to knit at least two out of every three projects he posts about.
- The Ethicurean is all about understanding the ethical implications of what we eat. Heavy on the US agricultural politics (especially during this year’s Farm Bill nonsense), but nonetheless vital reading.
- Yatima is my neighbour and fellow expat Rach’s journal of the good things in her life. Makes me smile every time I see there’s a new post in my reader.
- Oursin’s LJ saves me having to read the Guardian for myself. The regular haddock-slappings always get me nicely riled up.
(And people still have the temerity to ask, from time to time, “Where are all the women bloggers?” Hmph.)
