Ever since changing to WordPress in May, my perspective on the blogging world has evolved quite a bit. The WP community and resources are rich, and I’ve been visiting various blogs just to see what’s out there.
The thing about blogs is that mostly, I’m visiting once or twice. It could be that the subject matter just doesn’t interest me. It could be bad writing.* Maybe it’s targeted to a narrow audience. Perhaps it almost never gets updated. Possibly, it could have been good if everyone weren’t already saying the same thing. Or maybe there are just too many grilled cheese posts.**
These guys are different. I actually visit once or twice a week to see what they’re up to.
Reassembler: Has perhaps the greatest image header of all time. Your source on subjects as diverse as Miss Sakamoto, bathrooms unspeakable, and how to drive in Massachusetts. And of course, reassembly. He’s a USCF-rated expert, and would whoop up on me pretty good on the chessboard.
Hardcore Pawnography: If you have some interest in chess and can tolerate the occasional cuss word, this is for you. It’s a lot about his quest to improve his chess, and is much more interesting than I made it sound.
Out of the Ether: Mostly chess stuff; I’m waiting for the next unusual chess set he/she comes across. Not so frequentedly updated.
