Blogs You Should Be Following

A few times each year on Suggestion Saturday I will talk about blogs not listed in my links (with one exception in this post) that I highly recommend checking out. They’re arranged loosely by topic. Share your favourite sites in the comment section!

Love, Sexuality & Relationships

Effing Dykes. This is the funniest blog I’ve ever read. One day I’d love to sit down for a cup of coffee with the author and laugh about the weirdnesses of our society.

The Polyamory Paradigm. Discussions on a wide variety of topics related to polyamory.

The American Virgin. The social constructs of that thing we call virginity. The best posts here are the interviews with adult virgins of various ages and from a wide array of backgrounds.

Religion & Spirituality

Hell? No! Why there is no such thing as hell. It is blogs like this one that keep my flicker of religious belief smouldering.

Catching Courage. This isn’t a typical blog about religion or spirituality. In the short time I’ve been following it I remember few if any references to God yet it nurtures my soul all the same.

Justice & Social Acceptance

Accepting Dad. A blog written by a father whose son is gender-nonconforming.

Feministing. Religion, politics, and pop culture from a feminist perspective.

Mona Eltahawy. Thoughts from a Muslim, Egyptian Feminist.

Green Living & Simplicity

The Frugal Vegan. Frugality and vegan food. I’ve found so many good recipes here!

New Urban Habitat. Sustainable city living.

Stone Soup. Simple, delicious meal preparation.


Paleo-Future Blog. Images, articles and videos from what people thought the future would be like 20, 50, 100 years ago.

Tetrapod Zoology. Articles on unusual animals. Occasionally there are posts challenging readers to identify a particular species. I’ve never guessed it correctly but I will keep trying!

Heretic Underground. An obligatory link to my husband’s new site about unorthodox living. It launches today and I’m really looking forward to seeing what he has to say.

    I’ll just cut-and-paste what I posted on your hubby’s (new) blogsite:

    I’m interesting in seeing where you end up ‘going’ with this blog.

    The first and foremost question on my mind (in regards to your self-professed goal of Freedom) is which it is that you strive for freedom for?
    Free to…?
    Free from…?


    Of some of your listed unorthodox ideas…
    … I’ve ‘been there’ on some issues, and I have some concerns.
    A few have a potential of being self-serving (as well as self-liberating) as well as a possibility of traveling down a very dangerous path…

    You have my attention. Keep me posted.

    Your friend,
