…which ones would you choose?
When I launched Breaking Moulds a few weeks ago, I started using a new wordpress profile, which meant my “Reader” was reset to a clean slate. Even though I could go back to my other profile and check up on the blogs I follow there, there were a few I couldn’t live without ready access to and had to “re-follow.” Here are a few of my favourite WordPress blogs that I would take with me to the proverbial deserted island:
Dynamic and hilarious, I never know what The Byronic Man’s gonna hit me with next. I would give my fourth child to be as effortlessly funny as he is.
Don’t let the name fool you, she’s not actually the middlest. I felt so disillusioned when I learned this just the other day. Regardless, her hand-made comics about her childhood growing up as one of five sisters are artistic and amusing, and they always make my day.
A very thoughtful blog about how modern media and technology are changing us and shaping our culture. The blog author, Michael Sacasas, is working through his PhD and just published his first book, The Tourist and the Pilgrim: Essays on Life and Technology in a Digital Age.
As the name suggests, this blogger has embarked on a quest to remain single for 1000 days. I’ve been reading along from the beginning and she just recently passed the 1/3 mark. I suppose if I’m stranded on my deserted island for longer than 600 or so days I may run out of things to read here, but I don’t want to miss out on her experiment or its eventual conclusion.
The author of this blog, Leah, was a fellow Japan expat, although I only know her through blogging. She discusses gender and social issues in Japan, and always has something thoughtful and challenging to say about them. She also runs an excellent food blog called I’ll Make It Myself, although I’ve regrettably frequented it a lot less since she left wordpress.com.
How about you? If you had to choose only five blogs for your deserted island entertainment, which ones would they be?
This is a 31dbbb “Yeah Write” writing challenge post. For Day Nine we were to create a link post designed to promote the good work of others. I hope you enjoy perusing through a selection of my indispensable blog reads! I might put up another link post to newly discovered blogs of awesomeness soon, so feel free to leave links to your favourite and/or indispensable blog suggestions in the comments below!

Thanks for including me, I am honored! 🙂 This is a hard question because I subscribe to hundreds of blogs and they are all worth reading. My top 5 change every day, but today I would choose:
Kate Beaton’s http://www.harkavagrant.com/
Childhood Relived http://childhoodrelived.com/
and the Illustrations of Marc Johns http://www.marcjohns.com/
I guess I’d need a lot of cheering up/laughter if I was stuck on a deserted island 🙂
Hi Nicole, no I am honoured, thanks for visiting me here! (*^O^*)
Of your top five I’ve only heard of Speaker7, I’ll have to check the others out, thanks for sharing them! Cheers!
Thank you so much for featuring my blogs and for your kind words about them!
No problem! Not gonna lie, I was a little sad when you abandoned us all to return “home.” How will I ever cook now? 😉
Have no fear! 🙂 I’m a convert to the frying pan, and I’ve been collecting all my favorite Japan-friendly recipes (both mine and others’) here: http://www.illmakeitmyself.net/resources/japan-friendly-recipes-master-list/
Awesome. Consider it bookmarked.
This is a good idea for a post! Thank you for guiding me towards other good reads!
No problem, glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
