Marshall Kirkpatrick of ReadWriteWeb wrote an article titled 10 Sites For Finding Wonderful Things, and guess who made it to the list?
Yup - it's this lil' blog! Here's what he said about Neatorama:
Neatorama is a lot like BoingBoing, but a lot less high-brow and a little more fun. Regular games of "What Is It?" challenge readers to identify photographs of old and unusual objects. The whole site is almost a clearinghouse of weird and it's a much quicker read than BoingBoing.
"Clearinghouse of the wierd," now that's a tag line! (And do people really think Neatorama is like Boing Boing?) See who else made the list: Link
Neatorama is so great because it is a consistently updated blog with great content. Boingboing updates frequently but about 90% of it's posts I couldn't care less about. Oh, and BoingBoingTV is absolutely abysmal...
Despite being subtitled "A Directory of Wondeful Things" BB is written by people who can't wait for an opportunity to insert their heavily lefty political stance into the posts, and that's only palatable if you're like-minded.
I suspect their audience is the so-called hipster 18 to 30 or so demographic - or people who identify with same, ( I know a 50 year old father of two who does) whereas Neatorama's is far more inclusive.
