My top blogs, with a spin

A couple of bloggers have thrown out there top blogs in the past couple days, so I thought I'd add my .02 to this list. BUT........ I'm not going to mention any fly fishing blogs. And there's a reason for this, although probably a pretty lame one.

If you haven't noticed, I don't give shout outs to blogs. It's not that I don't read blogs; I have a follow list longer than my leg. And it's not that I'm a pompous jerk (well, maybe.....)

There is a lot of high quality content out there. I mean, top quality stuff. So to figure out who to mention...... I wouldn't know where to start. There's a lot of great blogs out there and I would hate to even look like I was placing one above another. So I will give this one shout out. Ready? "Look at my blog roll."

Those are the top of the top. I add people (and need to add more pronto) that do two things: have great content and update their blog regularly. I know of a lot more blogs, but they may only update every few weeks or so, so I haven't added them since they would never be on it anyway.

So take a minute and check the blog roll, and check it again every once in a while. Hopefully you'll find some good reads.

So for my blog list, I'm going to list some of my fav blogs that have pretty much nothing to do with fly fishing. I like to keep my interests varied, and these help me do it. So, in no particular order:

Lessons from a Sifu at Large- Sifu is the term for a teacher of the Chinese Martial Arts. I studied martial arts on and off for about 10 years, and his writings are insightful and entertaining.

Cappy and Pegody's World - This is a blog started by an older couple from Louisiana. I don't know why, but every time I read this blog, I get a smile on my face.

Flickr Blog - I'm not really sure what this one is, but I go here and nose through the photos. It's a blog on Flickr, but it looks like it's made up of a bunch of posts form various members..... kind of confusing but the photographs are stellar, so it get's a mention. Hopefully I'll figure it out and can pinpoint some of the posters, or something.

The Strength of Faith - I found this site via her husband, Bruce's blog. Sarah is an ordained minister, and this blog is just the whimsings (I think that's a word...) of her day to day as well as recipes, photography and I don't know what all. A lot of things. But it's all good.


  1. So many good blogs out there. I have only begun to break the surface. I have never heard of the four above so thanks for the tip. Tight Lines.

  2. I enjoy going to the top of the blogger page and hitting next blog. I've sound some really interesting stuff there.

  3. Your both right, the amount of good content out there is staggering. And these schmucks are doing it for free! Ha ha ha ha..... hey, wait a minute....
