One friend asked me this very question a couple of days ago, and I have to say I didn’t know how to answer. Sure I had blogs I read every week, had I not? Good observation. But, as a matter of fact, the ones that came to my mind were not necessarily my favourite, only the ones I followed every week for a series of reasons (being informed, sharing opinions with fellow bloggers / writers / scientists, relaxing, and so on) other than a real statement of preference.
Purely philosophical or not, her question gave me nonetheless the opportunity to think about the blogs I peruse the most, and I thought I can share them with you – if anything, I might give you some ideas 🙂
For easy browsing, I have divided them by category – but NOT in any particular order (alphabetic or other):
Sciences & (especially but not exclusively) Astrophysics
Il tredicesimo cavaliere [In Italian]
Contrary Brin (The blog of the amazing SF writer/scientist David Brin)
(The art of) Writing, Literary Magazines & Writers (hint: SFF & H, my kind)
La audacia de aquiles [bilingual, English and Spanish]
Whatever (Blog of John Scalzi)
[Note: I have ONLY included here blogs, not websites, otherwise it would’ve been virtually impossible to keep it to a manageable list. These generally appear, with few exceptions, on my WP list. Also, I have kept only the ones that have shown significant activity in 2017, not in previous years – otherwise, this list would have probably doubled in lenght].
If you already know them and you have something in kind that would make a good addition to my personal list, please do send it my way, and thanks!
