You know how sometimes you read a blog and find yourself delighted by the author’s sheer access to language? How some writing evinces an almost physical response? I thought you might enjoy the suggestions below. Of course, they aren’t the only good writers on my list, by any means, others write clearly, and convincingly and intelligently and with humor. But here are some bloggers who can turn a heck of a phrase.
- Pretty Far West. Mise writes from Ireland, primarily about interior design. Dry, elusive, warm. All at the same time.
- elefantitas allegres. Kate started out, I believe, with a wedding blog. Funny, good-humored, expansive. With a fondness for Hatch chiles.
- amalah. One of the big mama bloggers. Oldest son with sensory integration issues. Short posts both funny and moving, many asides, cute little boys.
- Blighty. Up in the UK, with boy children, making me laugh out loud.
- Maxminimus. Ostensibly ADG’s topic is menswear. Tom Wolfe meets the cordovan shell and Absalom, Absalom.
- miss whistle. Bumble Ward is a Brit of Norwegian heritage, writing in Los Angeles, and taking photos of theGreater Spotted, her dalmations. Her pieces on family are my favorites – not a word out of place.
- First Milk. Young woman in Brooklyn with poetry. Very distilled, poetic prose.
- Kidchamp. Bear with the density, the woman is brilliant. Drink from a firehose but willingly. Especially the Thundertome book reviews.
- Faux Fuchsia. FF writes from Brisbane, she is above water, luckily. Known for inventing phrases. And will never Knowingly Undercushion.
- Bourbon and Pearls. From the northern UK, Tabitha writes in a somewhat Bronte-esque style about pencil skirts and velvet jackets.
- The Trad. More menswear. This time with Montaigne as inspiration.
- Penelope Trunk. And, of course, Penelope. One of today’s completely original bloggers. Career advice. Also how not to kill yourself.
Any others to add?
