Which blogs do you visit regularly?

I'm curious to know which other blogs you visit regularly. Which blogs do you regularly visit to feel fully informed, fully entertained, or to have your thoughts provoked?

Which three or four, say, would you try and visit either every day, or every time you log on?

And do you visit them through your browser, or through a news-reader? (Don't worry if you don't know what a news-reader is. If you're curious you can go here and find out.)

Let me know below, if you'd be so kind. (And I know that many of you have problems logging on to comment, so feel free to make your comment anonymous if it's the only way to post it.) I really am curious.

  4. For a mainstream columnist, Andrew Sullivan is a MUST. Hes one of the few sensible religious conservatives in the US, far better than any of those at NRO's The Corner

  9. Berend:

    I second your recommendation of http://michaeltotten.com/. First-hand, first-class independent reporting from the Middle East.

    I am another regular reader of The Belmont Club, it often has very interesting information and links. However I think a lot of Wretchard's analysis is seriously flawed.

  10. My copy-n-paste from Bloglines.

    Mostly a mix of political, ambulance/rescue and friends.

    Yes, WorldChanging. I want to show you can be interested in new, intelligent technologies without being a raving leftie!

    And howstuffworks is an excellent feed.

  14. noizy, these are the things you read DAILY? That was the question.

    phi: I trade money based on Wretchard's analysis, so yes, I do find him extremely trustworthy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Berend, I don't mean that Wretchard's analysis is untrustworthy, but I don't agree with some of his assumptions, for example his emphasis on states rather than non-state actors, and some of his historical analogies. In general I think he is too optimistic.

    I hope you will check out some of the links I've posted above for analysis to complement The Belmont Club. I think you would particularly enjoy Coming Anarchy.

    ReplyDelete
  18. I can't say that I visit all my peeps every day -- although it's amazing how many places you can visit with a well set-up newsreader -- but I do like to regularly keep track of ninety-five percent of them.

    Thanks everyone for your faves. Very helpful. :-)

  19. berend: noizy, these are the things you read DAILY? That was the question.

    I see the title of the post is, in fact: "Which blogs do you visit regularly?"

    And, assuming there's something new to read, I visit all the sites on my bloglines subscriptions regularly.
