ValleyWag.Com is a blog that is all things Silicon Valley. If you like tech gossip/news then ValleyWag should be one of your regular stops.
Being one of the bigger blogs in an area help out in that you get a lot of information from “insiders” whom you have never even talked to. Reading through the recent posts you can tell that ValleyWag hit critical mass long ago. Here is an awesome post showing where Larry Page one of the founders of Google lives using Google Maps using the Streetview feature. I wonder what he gives the kids on Halloween. Here is another funny post about The Next Internet Millionaire some of these are hilarious and kinda scary at the same time. And then here is another post that has exactly what you would expect from deep in the heart of the valley Someone actually using the Apple I-Phone before the actual launch.
Basically if it has to do with technology, venture capitalism, or anything else in Silicon Valley ValleyWag.Com is the place to see it first.
CrayonWriter.com is a website dedicated to writing. The owner of this blog Theda K Rogers is a professional copywriter who writes in her business and on her blog. Most of her posts relate to actual writing and to having a home based business and more specifically a home based writing business.
She has definitely spent a lot of time thinking and planning out what her business is all about and has stayed focused on her website. As opposed to many other blogs that wander everywhere CrayonWriter.com actually stays on topic and writes about writing. (This is a sidenote/rant regarding this. We get a lot of requests to do reviews and lately I have gotten a few followup requests asking why we haven’t reviewed a particular site yet. While we have undoubtedly mistakenly overlooked a review most of the time it is for one of two reasons. 1-the writer barely has any posts yet so it is hard to do a review of any substance. And 2-if they have a lot of posts they jump all over the place and you have no idea why you would want to make it a regular stop.) Luckily Theda K at CrayonWriter has avoided these two downfalls of many bloggers. She has a lot of good and useful writing info and several useful posts on starting a home based business and being a work from home parent.
If you want to learn about copy-writing or how to cope with working at home with the kids (which is like 90% of bloggers) then make the Crayon Writer a regular visit.
