Your Favourite Blog?

Tue Jun 29, 2010 3:49 am

Pretty simple, if you are highly active in the blogosphere, or just casual reader... what is your favourite blog to read/follow and why?

I don't blog myself, and I'm not too up on the whole thing, but my favourite is Cake Wrecks, I usually check it out when I'm having a rough day at work, and need something to make me smile and laugh for a couple of minutes.

Cheers

I like www.crankyflier.com . It's the only blog I read daily. The writer is an A.net member, actually.
I also check this site periodically, It has some very interesting pictures and articles. Check out the "airplanes" section...

Not sure if you can call it a blog per se, but it is a very funny account of a gliding expedition to Birr (Ireland) that I participated in last year. Don't expect updates but it is very funny.

I'm not a huge blog reader, but my brother-in-law turned me on to this one while we were on vacation and now I'm hooked. Great writing style, and you can't beat the subject matter  http://flightlevel390.blogspot.com/

Free market fairy tales. It was much better until this UK blogger's employer told him he couldn't post much opinion pieces. But, he does a semi-daily "On this day and others" generally includes some interesting Victoria Cross citation or the details of some obscure 13th-19th century battle that occurred on that day.

Funny blogs, well you can't go wrong with failblog like others have said.

I want to guess he flies for US.

Am I correct?
