I’ve newly fallen in love with two sites I just found.
The first is an online magazine (actually two online magazines), called Low Tech Magazine and No Tech Magazine. Just really well written articles. I found them by looking for information about efficiency in pedal power generation and mechanics. Really nicely done series of articles on those, with lots of possibilities for future exploration. Reading those articles reminded me of browsing in a brick-and-mortar library, where any discovery is possible. None of what I’ve read is particularly applicable to my every day life, but the quality of information is highly entertaining and inspiring.
The second one is much more applicable and practical. It’s a blog by a lady in Seattle who I’m a little bit in love with. Her posts on mason jar magic and possibilities alone have me hooked. I’m still exploring, but so far I like her style and what I can see of her thought process. Her health food rant is what I found first, and echos so much of what I’ve gotten frustrated over, it’s hilarious. It such a lovely blog I’m not even distracted from the content by the Pacific Northwest Envy most Seattle based blogs induce.
After all the depressing “20 ways you’re wasting money at the grocery store” (buying out of season produce and canned soup, duh) and “5 ways to save on your electric bill” (turn off lights when you leave the room, unplug vampires, *YAWN*) links I’ve seen lately, it’s lovely to see that yes, actually useful, well written, and informed content is still on the internet. It just takes a little patient searching.
