I read some political blogs occasionally, but for the most part i tend to get my political news and views from a bunch of magazines that i sibscribe to, and some article-based websites. I’m not looking for recommendations for political blogs here.
The blogs i like to read on a regular basis are those that provide a window into a world—often on a hobby or an occupation—that many people never really experience. This can be everything from the mundane to the exotic.
My two favorites at the moment are:
Clublife: a blog by a bouncer in a Manhattan nightclub.
Waiter Rant: a blog by a waiter in a Manhattan restaurant.
As a former waiter myself, i love reading about the waiter’s trials and tribulations with his customers. He also provides links to some other interesting websites devoted to the hospitality industry.
The bouncer’s blog is really fascinating. He writes well, and gives a good sense of what the job is really like. He comes of as something of a misogynist asshole at times (although he denies it), but i still find his stuff really interesting.
So, what are some of your favorites? Any cool stuff i should know about?
