Best Blogs from PC World

by Kim on January 27, 2009 · 13 comments

PC World recently published a list of 100 of their favorite blogs.  I went through it yesterday and a lot of them seemed fun.  I know everyone’s Google Readers and Feeds are overflowing, but here are a few more I think you should consider (that don’t take any time to keep up with):

passive aggressive notes.com: A site devoted to the passive aggressive notes that people leave to each other about things like sharing a refrigerator or spoons in a work breakroom.  I’m a little passive aggressive, but nothing like this. This blog also has a book, which you can read about here.

The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks: Signs and stuff with completely inappropriate use of quotation marks.  I do love me some “bad” grammar.

Criggo: Another site with funny typos and ads from newspapers. I can’t decide if their tagline — “Newspapers are going away.  That’s to bad.” — is funny or sad, but either way most of these entries made me laugh.  This week the site is rated R, so stay away if that isn’t your thing.

Indexed: A weekday blog that features graphs and charts that make fun of things or make sense of things, without using math!  I get some and I don’t get others, but the ones I get make me smile.

Life Hackery: The tagline for the site says, “Useful, unusual and (Sometimes) Ironic Tops and Tricks to Hack Your Life into Shape.”  Mostly, it just funny lists to help you battle life’s common problems like How To Get a Measure of Revenge Against Society or Eight Awesome Ways to Use Christmas Neckties.  These posts are sort of long, but they don’t post everyday (as far as I can tell).

Do you have any favorite goofy blogs that you follow?

Cakewrecks! This site has a new post just about every morning, at least, and just about all of them make me giggle. Although, a warning: going through the archives will probably cost you about a morning’s worth of work… but it’s totally worth it. :)

Ha! Passive Agressive Notes sounds like a winner!

Fyrefly: Oh yes, I love that one! My friend Kimberly showed it to me, and we spent quite awhile going through the archives. I loved the Cookie Monster wrecks :)

Andi: It is, it is. That one is my favorite, easily.

I’ve been subscribing to The “Blog” of “Unnecessary” Quotation Marks for awhile – sometimes I think it the quotation mark must be the ONLY form of punctuation some people know. A newer favorite of mine is (The Customer is) Not Always Right (http://notalwaysright.com/) – it usually gives me at least one of my laughs for the day!

I don’t subscribe to them, but I do check in and look at the “Blog” of “Unnecessary” quotation marks and Indexed sometimes. Fun!

I love PA and Indexed (is it just me, or is the Indexed RSS feed kinda wonky lately?), and Criggo looks like another good one. I also like Post Secret and Not Always Right. NAR is especially funny if you’ve ever worked retail. :)

Florinda: I agree; I cannot believe some of the signs they’ve shown recently. There is no reason I can think of that quotation marks would be there. I used to work retail, so I am going to check out Not Always Right.

Rebecca: Very!

Jessi: I’m not sure, I’ve only been subscribed for a couple days now — I hope not! Post Secret is a good one too, I’ve wanted that book for quite awhile.

Thanks for the links, although my Google Reader runneth over, I can always use more of the not-much thinking type blogs.

Kim L: Yes, my Google Reader is working extra-hard these days too, but I like that none of these blogs take a lot of time to read or comment, they just make me laugh.

I’ve actually looked at passiveaggresivenotes.com before and it’s hilarious.
