Some niche blogs

Laura McKenna (via Russell and a couple of other places): "It's all about niche blogs. If you have a particular expertise and unique perspective, they you can quickly gain a following. Everyone else is out of luck."

Some of these are better known than others, some more serious than others. All are fun in their respective ways.

Apostrophe Abuse

Bad Paintings of Barack Obama (the images come up randomly, so keep clicking if you get repeats)

Goths in Hot Weather

Old Jews Telling Jokes

Passive-aggressive (and just plain aggressive) notes

Spotted: D.C. Summer Interns

Strange Maps

Toronto's abused shopping carts

I've loved Strange Maps for awhile - I think I might have even first come across it here! However, Apostrophe Abuse had me laughing out loud - and grimacing in regards to my own misuse. On a similar note, I recently read a students dissertation - and she had used semi-colons EVERYWHERE. I've never seen such a semi-coloned packed document in my life. I made her come and talk to me about the use of semi-colons.
