As a young American living in this beautiful country, I am proud of that. Should be! Everybody else from different countries should feel the same way. Proud for a country that has stood up for human rights and its people, even though they really haven’t followed through lately.
This part, I am not proud of. Some things that have been said by the US and actions that were taken really hasn’t helped its reputation and others around the world. But anyways, enough talk of politics in this article!
The internet is a very big place. It has grown at a fast rate since the 90’s. And to classify blogs or websites being from a certain region or country is quite utterly stupid. I mean someone from Siberia in an igloo can access any blog that will be presented here.
I mean it’s like trying to separate the American sand from the rest of the world. Sand is sand and differentiate between the two is ridiculous!
This article is talking about blogs that are wicked famous and somewhat strange, created from the United States. I just found it curios to find out those blogs that have a “funny” smell to them. I actually find them very interesting. Makes you read, even if ” ‘liking’ is not on your mind at the moment.”
This article is not really the type on, “Hey, let’s learn something new today!” Or, “Let me brush my memory and clean those focals on that particular topic” so-to-speak.
Everybody likes a laugh here and there.
If things would be so serious, damn.
Don’t really know how this world would run. Let us go out from the norm and caste and enjoy the blogs being featured here.
1. The Onion
This has been put at the number one spot. Like legit this is pure American stupidity! But it’s actually funny. A blog that produces articles which makes fun of anything unusual that has happened in this country and around the world.
They have videos on YouTube that has fooled, by the millions. I have been fooled by a video talking about how Justin Bieber was found dead. But I found out that it was a fictional story. lol
2. Fail Blog
A “fail” blog. Did it fail as a blog? Naw. These kinds of blogs are really humorous! I mean it’s really fun to look through the blog and see hilarious articles and headlines. Like I was going through and some of these headlines is what I read, “Changing a Tire FAIL”, “Nothing is responding”, What happens in Vegas disturbs me greatly”, and “Yo-Yo Skills Win”.
It was founded in 2008 and was bought a little later by the Cheezburger Network. I took this excerpt from Wikipedia on how it became popular.
Fail Blog “really started to take off when the financial industry decided to – ahem – fail.”
3. PEREZ HILTON
Seems like a too sunny day over at this blog. Love it though! Especially the header and design of it! Pink Yo! This blogger is one famous blogger. Everybody in the blogging world has heard about him and his name!
Get this. He said this about blogging, “because it seemed easy.” I guess it is in a way, but to make it grow is like trying to count the number hairs on your head! Not to easy, eh?
His blog talks about all the latest celebrity news and gossip surrounding it, which has caused some intense controversy in that world. But still, pretty sick blog there, Perez.
4. The Daily Beast
A political blog. Not quite a fan, but hey “it’s time to make some of the politicians!” Anyhow they don’t really do anything!
I guess it is similar to Perez’s blog. This time it surrounds itself in the world of politics.
Hey. I know that one! Dude? How is this a strange one? It really didn’t add this one to make fun of! I really enjoy this blog since it is similar in what it presents to my blog.
I added Mashable because they have worked so hard to produce amazing content with a humorous tongue within it! It deserved to be here! They talk about all the news of Social media,
“but also covers news and developments in mobile, entertainment, online video, business, web development, technology, memes and gadgets.” – Wikipedia
Check it out! You will love it!
6. Brain Pickings
Haha love the logo. Toothpicks being pulled out of the man’s head. Another blog that I ain’t familiar with. From what I see, it seems to be a blog that helps us learn something new in the world or tickle our mind with an amazing feat! Creative stuff there!
7. Laughing Squid
Similar to the blog that we just saw above us. Creative people like myself can surely learn form these two. So I don’t be lazy, I went the about page to get exactly what this blog is all about.
“Laughing Squid features interesting art, culture & technology from around the web.” That’s all we need to know!
8. Pink Sith
That header! Is that Darth Vader with boobs! Go to admit, that is the first time I saw Darth Vader changed to somewhat of a lady! It’s pretty cool anyhow!
This blog is written and owned by Elvira with articles written on makeup and cosmetics. Ladies?
No! This blog is not about the environment or the fact yo hug some trees! No! The name also caught my eye. That tells me to say this.
Have an interesting and unique name to your website. It’s a crazy psychological technique that can lure visitors to your site. It always gets me. A creative name always has me wondering what the site is all about.
“TreeHugger is the leading media outlet dedicated to driving sustainability mainstream.”
10. Boing Boing
A quite familiar blog to some of you, since is was established in 2000. What was interesting, I read that Boing Boing was first a magazine. Then it transitioned to a website, then to finally a blog.
Boing Boing seems to talk about interesting news everyday and apparently science with corruption? Don’t know.
11. OMG Facts
OMG! Did I just add this site to the list? Haha yea! Just a blog that talks about random things and OMG incidents.
Alike to the Fail Blog at the beginning.
Supposedly, this blog to read for are the ladies. Don’t believe me! Just look at the image above at the title.
Where it says. “Food. Fat.” and Feminism! Told you it was for the ladies. Haha I am just playin’ with you guys. I was stumped at the beginning when I found this blog.
Looking at the name, how could you go wrong? But I was wrong and so were you. It’s ok!
13. Social Media Examiner
The “world’s largest online social media magazine”. I like the design on this blog with a safari theme.
Very well done on presenting a blog about tools you can use and tutorials to help maximize your success in the Social media world.
14. Sweep Tight
A site that makes you want to sweep your house right now! From here it makes you. But if you go straight to the blog, that might change.
Makes you kinda sleepy. The name of this blog is again the reason for the addition to this list.
Last but definitely not the least is, the Copyblogger. Everyone in here has to know this blog! Kept this for the last because it is my favorite blog to read.
As a blogger, reading should be a daily habit. Form reading is where a ton fo inspiration lies.
Brian Clark has inspired me and his work is sometimes my inspiration.
All these blogs are great! Not one of them is better than the other. Each blog has a meaning to it and a meaning to its readers.
Maybe one day your blog will be featured in an article like this, with the help of some top WordPress plugins.
Take any blog you have seen here and read it more often. Everyone of them will have a unique purpose in your goal and ideas.
The online world can be very complicated place.
