Yesterday, August 31, was Blog Day. I wasn't aware of this celebration, but the idea of celebrating blogging by recommending 5 new blogs to readers sounds like fun. So here goes:
- SpellboundBlog.com - Is an archives-oriented blog by Jeanne Kramer-Smyth, an archives student at the University of Maryland. I found SpellboundBlog via Mike A. Matienzo's super-cool ArchivesBlogs aggregator blog.
- Andy Carvin's Waste of Bandwidth - I just starting reading this blog, which talks about the Digital Divide, and I find it quite interesting. The author, Andy, has recently accepted a new job at the Public Broadcast Service [Correction: I goofed. He currently writes a blog at PBS. His new job is with National Public Radio (NPR). Thanks, Andy!], working on some Web 2.0 technologies. His writing style is what got me hooked.
- Publish.com - "News and opinion on Web 2.0, online media and graphics tools." Not a blog per se, but a website with tons of web-related goodies, current and emerging technologies and trends. The website does offer a RSS feed.
- Intermedia - A blog written by Publish.com associate editor Steve Bryant, who writes about multimedia and web. A lot of what Bryant discusses on his blog will in some way impact the Web. Always good to stay ahead of the curve.
- Finally, for those interested in good web design and web technology blogs (with tips and techniques), here are a few: Adam Kalsey, Cameron Moll, and TechCrunch (mostly web news).
