The honour blog roll

adjective, noun, plural -ar·ies.
1. of, pertaining to, characterized by, or of the nature of a revolution, or a sudden, complete, or marked change: a revolutionary junta.
2. radically new or innovative; outside or beyond established procedure, principles, etc.: a revolutionary discovery.

The internet is a revolutionary tool - although, I’d like to use the term revolutionary loosely.  I believe that it’s one of the greatest things since sliced bread, but it’s actually ancient news compared all of the other innovations on the internet itself.
Take blogs, for example.  Whoever came up with the idea of providing a vehicle where online users can express their opinions, interests and general thoughts into a public journal is a sheer genius.
On that note, here’s an article that explains how blogs were first conceived.
Blogs provide a potpourri of different topics to read from.  Whether it’s a personal, business or special interest blog, there is absolutely something for everyone.  And if there really isn’t, start your own! 
Topics range from fashion, technology, news, crafts and LOL cats.  Just to name a few.
Here’s a list of some of my favourites to frequent:

The great thing about Mashable is that it covers a diverse range of techy topics, including digital culture and social media.  It’s my one stop shop to catch up on technological news.

This is one of the best blogs to catch up on all the going-ons in the Winnipeg.  I particularly like that doesn’t only focus on current news, but also takes note of upcoming developments, events as well as store promotions.

Speaking of local blogs, check out Suzy Bodiroga’s!  This cultural connoisseur talks about how awesome our modest prairie city really is.  She also interviews successful homegrown talent to prove that we’ve got some kick-butt people kicking around town.

The Sartorialist

Amongst the countless fashion blogs, it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle.  I personally find that The Sartorialist stands out against the rest, thanks to its simple design and beautiful, blown up photographs.  Less is more, after all.

This is the website on which The Book of Awesome is based on.  It features (literally) a thousand different things that their readers find awesome.  Whether it’s “finding money you didn’t know you lost” or “the smell of frying onions”, there’s bound to be something on here that’ll make you feel all warm and mushy inside.

The web’s portal for whatever is laughable when it comes to failures.  Some are hilarious, some are tragic.  Either way, you can’t stop scrolling down to read what’s next.

A young gentleman’s website that features quirky articles based on current events and strange stories.  I recently found out from his website that you CAN rent the Jersey Shore House – at a hefty price and not without changing the sheets first (the latter is not protocol, but probably a good idea).

This is only scratching the surface of bloggerdom, and I’d be interested to see which site you frequent.  Care to share?


  1. Such a good post Jacks! And gee, thanks for the shout-out.

  2. Thanks miss! Getting the word out, let's share that Winnipeg love. :)
