I’ve really enjoyed the following blogs of late:
Tepom.com – amateur personal finance advice from Scott Bliss. Usually thoughtful and interesting posts for everyday financial issues.
Cake Wrecks – professional cakes gone wrong. Oddly addictive. I’m always surprised at the niches blogs can fill (see also Passive Aggressive Notes).
Smashing Magazine – superb site for all aspects of web design, with a bias towards graphic design (which I need a lot of help with.
Futuristic Play – Andrew Chen’s blog which I read for its excellent posts on viral marketing, product design and user experience.
FiveThirtyEight – Nate Silver’s incredibly addictive election predictor site. Sadly I probably won’t be back for a few more years now…
