Happy Blog Day 2006! August 31, 2006


August 31st is Blog Day all over the world. Dianka, who has a great blog called Na Zdravi, was nice enough to mention me in her Blog Day post. I have been wanting to give a shout out to 5 of the blogs that I read all of the time – both as a way to tip my hat to them and to make sure that other people are reading them, as well.

My Aim Is True – This is not just a food blog. Amber is an A+, #1 cool girl all the way around. She’s got good taste in spades. Her blog covers fashion (and Project Runway!), home design, her newfound running, and her superstar Boston Terrier named Kyla.

Foodie NYC – I absolutely love Joe’s blog. I really appreciate his culinary expertise, his way of combining flavors I would never think to put together, and our mutual disdain for Sandra Lee – all written in a way that makes you feel like you’ve known him forever.

Lobstersquad – I really love seeing people who do things their own way. This is the blog of Ximena, an illustrator that lives in Madrid. You won’t find any photos on this blog. Instead, each post is beautifully illustrated. I mean, you won’t see any colored pencil cheese sandwiches there…but maybe that’s a *good* thing?

Neil Drinks Wine – This is a blog I have recently become addicted to! Neil was nice enough to become one of my Myspace buddies. He’s hot, his writing is sultry and descriptive, he has great taste in sunglasses and even better taste in wine. Whats not to love?

The Amateur Gourmet – I don’t think I have ever publicly professed my love for this blog. I’m here to change all of that. I started reading this blog when Adam was still here in Atlanta. Since then, he’s moved to NYC and landed himself a book deal! His blog is the perfect mix of information and humor – his meal at Babbo one minute and photos of his mom with Flea the next. More often than not, I’m laughing out loud.
