At Quirk, we love sharing the good things we find online and the knowledge we acquire from combing the Internet, whether related to what we do or just a piece of amazing content. With the millions of blogs out there, however, it can often be difficult to find those 'gems' sharing the worthwhile content that keeps you coming back for more. Hopefully today I’ve made that job a little easier for you, though, with a pick of the 4 blogs that you should, without a doubt, add to your RSS feed this year.
The Awesomer is a blog dedicated to curating anything the blog team find interesting, or as they put it: ‘The Awesomer is a daily blog filled with awesome stuff for awesome people’. What I love about this blog is how short and sweet each post is, which is important if you’re flicking through your RSS reader and skimming posts. Check it out and let me know how you think it holds up to other blogs of a similar nature, like NotCot and One Cool Thing A Day.
For all intents and purposes, The Billfold is a blog about money and finances (maybe you guessed that from the title, though). What really grabbed my attention with this one, however, is that instead of focusing on the usual topics that are associated with blogs of a financial nature, The Billfold focuses on peoples’ stories about money, and how their financial habits affect them on a daily basis, good and bad. This site makes for an interesting read and you definitely learn a few lessons along the way.
The Daily Tekk is one of my favourite finds of 2012, and I’m gladly taking it into the New Year. One of my favourite features about this blog are their regular posts on the top tools to use for finding new music, creating an app or finding and sharing amazing web content. Apart from that, the site covers interesting tech content in a way that is completely different to other tech focused websites. It’s definitely a must read!
The 99 Percent
The 99 Percent believes that ‘...it’s not about ideas. It’s about making ideas happen’. Through their posts they aim to inspire their readers to go beyond idea generation and toward idea execution. They’re Behance’s research and education arm, so they’re well placed within the industry to provide best practice tips.
