Let's Talk about Reading.

Over the last few days I've been working on my reading list for the weekly Best Reads column that I started last Saturday. My initial goal was to just simply have everything in an easy to read format so that I could quickly move form site to site, but as I kept on going through these wonderful blogs I started to wonder if I'm missing out on some really good ones. So I decided to post a complete listing of all the blogs I'm regularly checking out in the hopes that if I'm missing some awesome reads out there that someone in the blogging community will be able to point me in the right direction.

Before I start with the list, I'd like to note that some of these blogs have gone dark (I think that 20 of them have, but it may be more or less). I'm including them anyway as I'm always hopeful that their authors will come back one day and start updating again.

If your blog is listed on here, and you'd like to add a description of it so that other people can get a good idea about your writing interests just drop me a short note and I'll add it!


  1. Oh my god! How do you follow all of these blogs?!?! O_o

    1. Ha!

      It's not that hard. I used to read ten newspapers every day. Besides, not every blog updates daily. Most of them only update every three to four days.

  2. I was thinking the same ting as Giuseppe!
    However if you would like one more here is a link to my Dev blog for the "Shards of Thimbral" RPG
    I may never make best reads of the week status but you might find some of the content interesting , and I don't plan on going dark any time soon.

    1. Thanks for the link to your blog Mark Van Vlack! I'm looking forward to reading it!

  3. As long as you're asking for more to read, I'll throw on the pile:
    It might not be what you're looking for, since most of the content is specific to my homebrew system, but you're welcome to it.

    1. Thanks Jameseck! I actually added your blog to my reading list this morning when I ran across it in one of the Google+ communities.
