What’s the coolest site you visit daily?
Besides the usual suspects (and the ones in my “links” list), I thought I’d ask y’all to talk about the coolest blogs/Web sites worth seeing. They can be poetry related or not. Here are a few that I’ve recently discovered:
Poetry Foundation: Everything poetry, from Web journals to poetry news, updated daily.
David Byrne: Just when you thought you were smart, along comes a blog that makes you wish you were smarter.
Overheard in New York: Be careful. You never know who may be listening.
Post Secret: Got a secret? Do tell.
New York Hack: Beware of cabbies carrying cameras—payback’s a b*tch!
Archie McPhee: Looking for bacon strips bandages? Yeah, we’ve got that.
Bidding for Travel: Before you book travel on Priceline.com, stop here for the going rates on bids.
Golden Fiddle: Celeb gossip with a twist of lime.
Podsafe Music Network: If you are podcaster or a wannabe, or just like indie music, this is the spot for you.
And for us newbie bloggers, read 56 Ways to Get Traffic to Your Blog from Problogger's Seth Gordon. Though you’re probably not looking for ad revenue, Problogger is a great resource for technical stuff.
(I plan on trying #14 on some of you … so be afraid. Be very afraid.)
...and what is this #14 you speak of? I better get over there to read and prepare!
Maybe libelous is the wrong word here. Maybe writing "appreciative"
or "complementary" things is the way to go!
BB, I think you're fabulous! I dare you to respond! (Also, sorry my links weren't working earlier. How embarrassing!)
There is also Arts and Letters Daily http://aldaily.com/
It is actually a blog aggregator that tracks over 500 music blogs and puts any songs that have been posted into a player. You can listen to a playlist of songs written about in the last three days, songs that other listeners have searched for in the past five minutes, or search for an artist and see which of her songs have been written about recently.
The Hype Machine has brought me new music, but you also find a good bit of old music if someone decides to write about something like music from the year she was born. I am loving it (and no, I don't work for the website).
