I need me some blogs

So I’ve been toying with where to go next with phillygrrl.com. For one thing, I definitely don’t know enough about blogging. I try to learn from other bloggers, but it’s not like they all wear t-shirts with their URL (although that’s a great idea for the next DL meet, eh Mithras?)

I do know one thing. I don’t know anything about the Philly blog scene. I’ve stumbled upon a few sites I like. But I come across other well-known sites every day. My favorite find today? Phawker. Also, the WHYY blog – It’s Our City. Oh yeah, and I just came across Dan McQuade’s site, Philadelphia Will Do.  Oops, it died.

Forget local blogs. I don’t even read national blogs. Well, except for HuffPo. Today, my mentor sent me a link to the blog of one Penelope Trunk, whose advice blog instantly revolutionized my life. Well, sort of. Let’s see how her job-finding skills work out for her.

Funny thing is, I have friends who read zillions of blogs every day.

Please, people.  Spare me the pain of embarassing myself on a daily business and let me know what blogs you like to read. It’s awful to be in the dark about these things.  (I still cringe at the memory of telling Atrios his URL was too long and easily forgetable. His droll response? “People do tell me I’m bad at marketing.” )

What blogs do you like to read? I don’t really care about content so much as appeal. A good techie blog might be just what I need. So may a blog about makeup.

Let me know what floats  your boat. I’m totally clueless.
