Got a Blog? Come Tell Us About It!

Part of the fun in writing for Neatorama is all the blogs I get to visit in search for posts. In three years of editing this blog, I've looked at and bookmarked quite a bit of blogs - but call it blogging fatigue, time-crunch or whatever, I realize that I've actually been regularly visiting only a small fraction of them. And I've come to realize how much I miss discovering new gems on the Web.

So, in the spirit of renewal, I'd like to ask you to introduce you and your blog: what it is all about and why we should all visit. I promise to visit (often if your blog is good!) ... and who knows, you'll probably see your blog featured on Neatorama!

Update 7/28/08 - Wow! That's great, you guys! It'll take me a while to go visit everybody's blogs but I definitely will. Please keep 'em coming (yes, shameless plugs are all right in this post). I noticed that some comments are caught by Neatorama's spam filters (Akismet and our secondary filter) - if your comment doesn't appear in several hours, please email me and I'll manually add your blogs to the ever-growing list.

Well, my blog is a collection of the greatest stuff that's out there, when it comes to music, art and or advertising. From time to time, it gets invaded by robots or I'm shamelessly plugging my book. So check it out from time to time ;)

I started a blog not that long ago (I will hit 50 posts later today), essentially to share stuff that I have found with my friends. It's not much but hey, a plug is a plug! :)
http://www.kickpunchblock.blogspot.com
It's called plinx because my name is Paul and they're my links. It was a working title that has stuck.
Enjoy!

found by Pat is my site. It sprang from the emails I sent to my friends. Not like all that bad joke stuff. Useful interesting information. A friend told me I should start a blog and so I finally did.

It is growing steadily and I love doing it. Check it out. I think you will like it and find it a great source.

My blog is about the custom carved signs that we make.

The interesting thing this month, is that we are having a contest for a free carved sign!

I enjoy photography. My blog is a document of the lifestyle in NZ. Mostly food and wine, interesting events, discoveries of funnies, and my obsession of my cat, Monty. She actually plays fetch: http://weblog.xanga.com/n0n_sequ1tur/667935699/monty-fetches.html

My blog (actually I've got 3, they are connected though) is in spanish but many of the contents are audiovisual and in english, or not difficult to understand...

Mandelrot: (http://mandelrot.com) is the main page, interesting things from Internet or RealWorld.

El Lado Malo ("the naughty side"): (http://elladomalo.com) here are those things I can't publish in a serious magazine :-p

Thanks for this great idea!

Hi! Long time lurker, first time commenter, jumping in on the chance for a shameless plug ;)

I started http://www.teamteabag.com last November as a hardcore gaming type site, but quickly lost interest in that and now we tend to cover random geeky stuff we find all over the internet (there are 5 of us regularly contributing).

If you like the kind of random stuff you see on Neatorama, Boing Boing, Technabob etc. then you'd probably like the kind of stuff that we cover!

I don't have time to write that often but I'm a born-again Christian who doesn't always espouse the views of my fellow brethren.

I tend to offend both Christians and non-Christians with my views, but I mostly want people to think and see things from the other perspective.

My blog was inspired by a game I play with my kids whenever we are in the car, "I Spy with my little eye...". The name of the site is http://www.theispysite.com.

The blog is basically a place for me to record and share all the stuff I find on the web that I find interesting. From neat gadgets to stunning photography to amazingly useful websites to interesting videos, a little of it all really. I do find a lot of amazing things on a regular basis.

I must admit a lot of the best stuff I find I usually find here at Neatorama.com. This site is my first, middle and last stop on my daily rounds.

My internet life would be a lot less bright without Neatorama in my day.

What a great way to find new blogs, and get your readers active! I enjoy Neatorama; I often find things through your blog that I link to and that really interest me.

I'm an avid reader, book-a-holic, and write teen fiction. My children's/teen book blog showcases all things books, with a focus on children's and teen fiction.

You can find detailed book reviews; author & illustrator interviews; links to gifts for book lovers; printable bookmarks; book and word art; information about what movies are coming out based on children's and teen books; children's and teen book news; book promotion; info about ebooks; and more.

My personal Blog

http://fragiletranquility.blogspot.com/

is just sort of a journal where I talk about my day-to-day mundane stuff, and review movies/tv shows/albums/concerts/books/etc. that I've seen/heard/read. Some cool links (which I mostly steal from Neatorama) are usually thrown in for good measure.

Also, I'm attempting to take one picture every day for a year, to see if my photography improves and as something (sort of) challenging to do. You can see my daily picture at

My blog is written in Spanish as I am from Spain.
The title is "La esperanza sigue en los proles". The translation could be something like "If there is hope, it still lies in the proles". It a reference to Orwell's 1984.
I write about different topics.
In the sidebar I use to post curious stuff, usually from neatorama.

My Dutchnid blog started out as a Wargaming (table top) blog but ended up as the blog I drop everything that pops up, holiday pics, funny things I come across or things that just plain annoy me..and now and then a wargaming post pops up.

Next to that I run http://soundtracksofwhatever.blogspot.com I review soundtracks and scores. Often a big source for new music for me and hopefully for others.

Hey Neatoramos!

My blog is www.runonemotion.blogspot.com and I usually post things that I find across the web in Neatorama and Presurfer and then translate it or tell it in my own words in Portuguese. My idea is to help those few who don't get a word of english. On some other days I post the music I like or the things that are on my mind...

Now it's filed with pictures of my recent trip to London but now that I'm back home normal blogging will ensue!

I post random things I find on the web (yup, some from here!), song lyrics, poems and quotes that I like, some rants from my daily life and lots of dreams that I've had. I have extremely bizarre dreams and my blog was a way of keeping them journaled.

Thanks for asking! I'm looking forward to checking out lots of new blogs from the comments, too.

Okay. Why not? Based on my site stats alone, one would think I fired up the site to be one-stop shopping for people looking for "hillbilly sex" (What do they hope to find? Don't answer that.) or, oddly, "hillbilly socks" (See previous parenthetical queries.) but that isn't the actual purpose of Hillbilly, Please, so neither will be found there.

(You'd be amazed at how often people search for hillbilly things. And it turns out that referencing Madelene Kahn will bring a surprising amount of traffic as well. But I digress.)

I probably had lofty goals in the beginning but those were quickly replaced with my compulsion to quote books and articles on science/culture/language, link to random bits of oddness, post photos, and instigate scattershot activities such as a sort-of-probably-destined-to-be-annual Sandwich Party.

My blog is personal, and was initially created for my family and friends back home when I left the States. It's got a few rants and some fun video on it, and I doubt it would be of huge interest to anyone that doesn't know me, but if you want, click on my name for a peek.

I write a blog about my experiences as a Kiwi (person from New Zealand) living in London. Hardly a unique point of view as there are thousands of here using London as a base for seeing more of the the world. When in London I put a few of the things I am up to on the blog but when I travel I write a daily blog about the things I experience. To date I have backpacked 81 countries (not all of them are blogged sadly) in the last 10 years. My goal is 100 :)

Hey Alex; thanks for asking! I've noticed my browsing has tended to get a bit narrowly focused lately, and this gives me a bunch of fresh places to visit.

As for my blog, it's nothing spectacular, just stuff that I find interesting on the web or in real life and take the time to write about (and take the time to actually finish writing and get it to the point where I think it's ready for public consumption.) Cars, bikes, energy, politics, family, work, computers, whatever. Pretty random, but... What were we talking about? Oh yeah! My ADD-riddled blog... http://www.davintosh.com/

My blog has been updated very little in the past 12 months compared to 2004-2006, or so. Instead, I have been updating my Google Shared Items when something interests me. I only have to write a line, if that, so it sames me a lot of time.

I share a lot of neatorama, but a lot of other stuff along the same lines. It might be interesting to neatorama to see what a neatorama fan likes other than neatorama. :)

My blog is alright. It's just my musing on things I find interesting- so some stuff about cinema, music, news, politics, international politics, my own life, etc. It's a pretty eclectic collection of things to write about.

First off, I will be going through this list looking for new reads. Very cool.

I have two blogs and one site.

The blogs.

http://lifeinaustin.blogspot.com - Just an every other day blog about stuff. It started as a way for my parents to see pictures of their grandkids, but I've done other things with it.

http://robotportrait.blogspot.com - Used to be a project where people could send me a photo or a name and I'd draw them a 5x7 robotized version and do a video of it being drawn. Interest waned so now I just post from the 700 Robots list on Flickr and the current Robot a Week Challenge.

Finally, http://100artistsproject.com - It has a blog and a ning site as well, it's a charity art project and it's getting ready for it's second volume. I only use the blog to talk about things related to the project, but that does include interviews. The most noteable being Adam Koford who's done some work for contests here.

C'est ca.

I started Picdit about 8 months ago, and the blog has been going strong until this very day. I created the blog for one reason only, to post the stuff I found was interesting, while surfing the web. That means: design, architecture, gadgets, you name it. Basically saying, the things are totally awesome in this world. I’m trying to find a lot of the new stuff, so if you go back into the internet archives, you won’t the pictures here…. over there.
