Top 10 Favorite blogs of 2010

This was a really difficult list to make.  I have a pretty extensive blog roll, and I love each one for different reasons.  Whenever I stop enjoying a blog, I simply stop following it.  Therefore, this list is coming equipped with an extensive honorable mention list.  My blog, my rules.  I could get used to this being-in-charge stuff!

TB's Top Ten Favorite Blogs of 2010

10.  {the best is yet to be}Vanessa Chinn, an adorable young married Harry Potter fan with two cats, runs this photo-heavy blog.  Though her posts aren't always super-long, they come often and are a bright spot in my day.  She likes answering fill-in-the-blank surveys and posting photos of her cats.  Oh, and she has the cutest hairdo ever.

9.  The Binderclips & HulaBuns Chronicles
I began following HulaBuns less than a year ago, after she started following me.  After a little bit of comments correspondence, we figured out that we live about ten minutes apart from one another.  How nutty is that?  We quickly became good friends, and I love having a blogger buddy to meet up with and have dinner or see movies.  Her blog chronicles her life with her husband and two dogs, and what it's like to be a *little* bit quirkier than the rest of the world around her.

8.  My Inflammatory Writ
Kari is a playwright living in New York City.  She is fiercely liberal and wonderfully honest when it comes to writing about her life.  Although she doesn't update her blog as often as I would like, I always enjoy reading what she writes.  It's inspiring to see someone following her dreams and succeeding!

7.  A Teacup of Coffee
Ex-patriot Krista married and Italian man and now lives in Italy.  She likes to point out fun things she's found on the internet, loves good food and drinks, and shares helpful hints for making a fake cappuccino.   Such a whimsical blog!

6.  Sporadic Sporkitudes
I don't remember how I found Rambling Hutch, but I'm sure glad that I did!  She's a writer living in Los Angeles, working in the film industry in some capacity or another.  All I really know about her job is that she gets to drive a really cool golf cart.  Anyway, her writing is funny and easy-to-read.  Her posts are like potato chips:  I dare you to read just one.

5.  Gently Said
Jerry was my first stranger-follower.  I've mentioned him on here before, but I'm going to do it again.  His blog is just great.  He writes about once a week, often sharing stories of his youth or anecdotes from his present life.  Want to know how to make a really good Rustic and Bloopy Bread Pudding?  Well, Jerry's your man and Gently Said should be your destination.

4.  Hyperbole and a Half
If you don't read this one (is that possible?), you are missing out.  Allie Brosh is a genius at telling stories from her childhood with simple MS Paint cartoons.  Though she doesn't update as often as she used to (I have a sneaking suspicion it's because she's busy getting paid to be funny now), she's worth following, at least so that you can be one of the first to start her newest post going viral.  Which they all do now, because she's that good. 

3.  Red Means Go
Annah Rondon  writes this blog, which should probably have an "adult material" disclaimer, but doesn't.  Do drawings of naked people count as porn?  I don't really know, but I do know that Annah can draw the heck out of them, and they're hilarious!  I'd say that her content is about 1/2 sex-related and 1/2 pet-related (she fosters homeless dogs), with a great deal of self-deprecation sprinkled in for good measure.  She updates nearly every day, because she's on a quest for famosity, and she always responds to comments.  What are you waiting for?  Go subscribe, you nut!

2.  Kid In The Front Row
I found this blog when I was perusing the Blogs of Note one night, and I've been hooked ever since.  Kid blogs anonymously, but from what I've gathered he is British, a professional screenwriter/director, and he's had some measure of success.   Mostly, he writes about movies, which works for me since I love movies dearly, but he also interviews other film professionals, which makes you feel like, Hey!  I could totally do that one day.  Very inspirational blog, it's definitely one of my favorites now!

1.  The Sassy Curmudgeon
Who loves Una?  I do!  No matter how many other blogs I read, I always check Una's blog first.  She writes nearly every single day about something.  She lives in NYC, works for a newspaper, and has a photographer husband.   She had a unibrow growing up, which seems to have given her material for the rest of her life.  She likes karaoke and wine and trashy television...what's not to like?  Read her.  Love her.  You know you want to.

Honorable Mentions!
