You know you have blog envy. That’s the feeling you get when you go to a blog and start getting those feelings of inadequacy. It might be because of really good design, maybe the writing is just incredible, it could be that they’re better at breaking stories or any number of other reasons.
I’m no different. Here are mine and the reasons why:
Web Worker Daily
It’s not just the great content, or the perfect design… It’s the whole package and it makes me angry just to go there. Part of Om Malik’s “GigaOm” network, it has thoughts, stories and tips on how to work from a mobile environment.
I’ve been envious of Coda’s brilliant blog design for over 2 years. Don’t let me get started on his photography skills, comparing myself there makes me feel absolutely pathetic. Please teach me how to be a Coda-clone so that I can die happy.
Anyone who averages over 35 comments PER POST deserves credit. I’m extremely jealous of his ability to create community, not to mention his ability to write “funny” (though you have to be from Kenya to catch some of it).
It’s like crack for someone who is interested in development and technology. I can’t go to World Changing and just read one story.
Creating Passionate Users
No one manages to get an idea across better than Kathy Sierra. This is where I go to beat myself over the head learning how to create simple graphics that you instantly “get”.
If you would like to participate in this exercise, please tag your post with “blogenvy” and list 3-5 blogs that create deep feelings of envy and jealousy.
