How I Learned To Stop Worrying and Love The Blog (A Mash-up of Blogs I Think You’d Like)

I like blogging, and I like reading blogs. So, I thought it’d be a nice thing to share some nice things with you.

Like this:

[Edit] Radio is a music blog/podcast site and features music news and opinion on the blog side, and loads of amazing artists-that-you-probably-haven’t-heard-of-yet in their podcasts.

The Ocelot is an actual paper magazine (<mild sacrasm>I know, paper is so retro!</mild sarcasm>), which you can pick up in various places around Swindon for free. It’s normally a fun read, and contains loads of info on local happenings/gigs. I’ve only just discovered their website, but even so, their blog seems quite entertaining.

Ben Marwood’s blog details Ben’s adventures through touring, recording and life in general. Check out his blog. And, more importantly, check out his music because it’s clever, charming and compelling – and Frank Turner will cut off your legs off if you don’t*.

And finally, Don’t Make That Face is nothing to do with music, but you should read it anyway. Because it’s funny. The end.**

Um, that’s it for now…

So yeah, have a gander – and if you like, you can add your own recommendations in the comments. Or don’t. It’s a free country after all. But bear in mind that I do like to feel the warm glow of your commenty goodness (ooh, that kind of sounded naughty… *giggle*. It’s not though, just to be clear.).

Alright, this image has nothing to do with the post - but it's always good to be organised, right kitteh? (image from

*Genuine, actual Frank Turner quote from this YouTube vid.

**I should mention for the more ‘sensitive’ men out there… the last post I read by Don’t Make That Face was about feminine hygiene products. Just be warned if you’re the type of guy who runs screaming from the word ‘cramps’. Yes, I said it, and I’ll say it again too. Cramps, cramps, cramps! Mwhahaaahaa!
