I am a fairly obsessive blog reader. I just checked the RSS feeder I use, The Old Reader, [insert obligatory moment of silence for Google Reader] and it tells me that I follow 262 blogs on a daily basis. Some of those are dead, and I need to do some cleaning; some of them post multiple times a day. It averages out to about 180-225 blog posts a day. Do I read every single word of every post? No. I do some serious skimming for some of them – I’m looking at you, Harvard Business Review. (the signal to noise ratio of useful thought leadership to pure assholery is…less than ideal.)
I held steady for a long time, but I’m now at a point where I’d like to add new subscriptions. Over the next few days, I’m going to add a “horse blogs I read” function to this blog – possibly to the sidebar, possibly as a separate page.
I’m looking to expand my reading. I love finding fun new blogs to feature in my weekly blog roundups. I want to go out of my comfort zone and read different blogs, different point of views.
SO. I’m going to do a sort of reverse Follow Friday.
Please comment and tell me one (or two, or three) blogs that I should be following. Please include the URL and if you have an extra moment, a sentence or two about why you like that blog. I’d really appreciate it.
Thank you in advance!

nice! i'm totally overwhelmed by my feed reader too – and am usually woefully behind everything except the horsey blogs.
as for recommendations, i'm not gonna single out any particular blogs bc i don't know what you're already reading – but i follow everything on my blog list pretty closely and am somewhat partial to it lol 🙂
I know you follow the big'uns, some fun ones that I think are cool are:
Eventing connect, I don't have the link but Google it!
Not your normal horse blog, but I love this one
I will check it out, thanks!
Googled & added – thanks!
I like the non-normal ones! thank you for the rec!
I'm on my phone so I can't link right now but I have a list that I follow on my blog(right side) 🙂
