    Default Do you regularly read specialized blogs?

    I was wondering if you guys regularly read specialised blogs?
    This could range from specific scientific fields, art, literature, technology to technical projects, such as constructing a house.

    Non-specific examples:
    http://www.virology.ws/
    http://www.overcomingbias.com/
    http://hackaday.com/
    http://www.daycreek.com/dc/html/journalmenu.htm

    Do you prefer reading these over more personal blogs/journals?

    I read a mix of specialized and personal blogs. I like the balance. Most of the specialized blogs are related to my profession (librarian). Lately, most of the personal blogs I've been reading are the ones on this forum.

    “To explain all nature is too difficult a task for any one man or even for any one age. 'Tis much better to do a little with certainty, & leave the rest for others that come after you, than to explain all things by conjecture without making sure of any thing.”—Statement from unpublished notes for the Preface to the Opticks (1704) by Newton.

    What do you think about me? And for the darker side, here.

    yes. i have hundreds that i read through google reader.
    there's a mix between industry blogs. and photography / iphoneagraphy blogs.
    and a good chunk are curators/museum blogs

    there's just something wonderful about people
    who know how to pick and choose. "a lot" is easy.
    "a little" - without losing meaning... is so fascinating.
    every normal man must be tempted, at times,
    to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag,
    and begin slitting throats.

    Honestly? I'm more the kind of person who WRITES blogs and doesn't actually read them.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    If you don't agree about my MBTI type, you can complain about it here. I've had plenty of people telling me I'm something else, in my reputation box. That's annoying.
