Blogspotting - Other Than Sports Edition

I've been asked a few times about what else I like to follow other than sports. There are many, many things that interest me. In addition to "sports ADD" I really have "hobby ADD" as well. So many things interest me it would be hard to capture them all at once. I file away many things that interest me on my posterous blog. It's really my virtual filing cabinet for things I want to refer back to or share later. In addition, some of my other faves in my reader are:

That Mutt is one I've always got to check in with. Lindsay is a regular commenter here and has contributed more than once. Her blog is full of valuable information for living with your dog including food, behavior, exercise, and so much more.

Bluebird Vintage Official Blog is a must read for vintage clothing fans, which I most definitely am.

Mashable is where I get my fix for info in social media and related technologies.

Le Fashion is another great spot for fashion inspiration as is The Sartotialist.

green LA girl chronicles urban eco living by the beach and has great tips and giveaways.

Senor Gif is always funny as is Bluntcard.

The statistician/data geek in me is a big fan of Flowing Data.

Lastly, but surely not the least, I always check in at Timothy Types TMI. He's an aspiring author, professional smarty pants, and one of the coolest little brothers a gal could have.

This is not an exhaustive list by any means and I'll probably do another post like this sometime with more good ones.

What other blogs do you sports nuts check in on that aren't related to sports?

Yes, "sports ADD" and "hobby ADD" runs in our family. At least it's confirmed. I can't really do much about it. I find myself wanting to go golfing, watch football, eat, read a good book, eat, play a video game, play a board game, play a card game, eat, and I'm sure there are a lot of other things that I could find interest in or have found interest in that I'm forgetting right now.

Yep - I didn't even get into reading or a plethora of other things...and of course you have to eat.

Apryl, why don't you add a blogroll of the "other interest" blogs you follow? That would answer a lot of people's questions.

I have a "My Other Blog List" right below my golf bloglist, with my favorite webcomics, woodworking, computer, writing, and fiction blogs listed. Life is so much more than just golf (or, in your case, sports in general)...

Apryl DeLancey said...

I do have a small section called "Other Links" that has a few. I just might make a new page that covers more.

Mike said...

Shows how slow I am -- I didn't realize those were other blogs you checked frequently. See, I've also got a link list (only two in it right now) that are reference sites. It's separate from my "other blogs" list.

Lindsay said...

Thank you so much for the link. Ace was very interested in that bloodhound video you posted, by the way. CUTE!

I love checking out your blog as well! Going to have to check out some of the other sites you mentioned.

Apryl DeLancey said...

Haha! Yeah, the baby hounds get Gus going too. He makes the funniest head tilt.

Lindsay said...

Awww. Do you get Gus to howl?

Apryl DeLancey said...

He doesn't get howling for them but he gets the best confusion face ever!
