Blog Notes: Coffee, Tech, Fashion & Politics
It’s Monday. Like most Mondays — MLK Day and Inauguration Day included (happy greetings on both!) — many folks start off with coffee. A blog like Dear Coffee, I Love You is perfectly suited for the start of the week. This is a fun blog, and the photography is beautiful. DCILY covers a lot of ground: Brew methods, Coffee 101, coffee reviews, coffee touring, interviews, products, and roasters. Its posts focus on the intersection of coffee, culture, creativity, and design. Read the full review from PR Newswire for Bloggers here.
Fondly known as QOT, Quick Online Tips regularly publishes tips and news about all things tech. This includes, but is not limited to, tech news, practical blogging tips, social media, marketing, SEO, SEM, and useful computer software. Quick Online Tips was launched in 2004. It has a pretty strong following: More than 25,000 daily RSS feed readers and more than 15,000 engaged social media followers, according to the blog. It’s managed and edited by P. Chandra. One of my favorite write ups actually was its year-end piece on the Top Articles of 2012. There’s an incredible amount of information in there. Read the full review here.
For more than 10 years, Talking Points Memo has been a leading online destination for political news. In fact, it was the first online organization to win the prestigious George Polk Award. You may also have read about TPM on The New York Times, Columbia Journalism Review, NiemanJournalismLab, The LA Times, or TechCrunch. Or maybe you’re interested in politics, in which case you’ve probably stumbled across TPM at some point or another. And if you are interested in politics and NOT reading TPM, it’s probably time to start. Read the full review here.
Preston Davis spent 20 years casting models for Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, and fashion shows. Her blog Keep It Chic is incredibly beautiful and filled with fascinating people and profiles. The most recent write up is on artist Leah McCloskey. Davis says Keep It Chic is her way to “share my thoughts on fashion and style. I believe style should permeate every aspect of our lives — from home, to family, to where we go, and naturally, what we wear.” The blog features a host of profiles, places, and Davis’s things I love.
