May 2011: 5 Awesome Blogs

I’ve been following five blogs for the past month.  Two of them are maintained by people I know.  Check them out:

1. Altucher Confidential

A neurotic Jewish hedge fund manager’s blog about personal finance and life.  James Altucher has a bold, self-deprecating sense of humor and iron-clad credentials to back up his sometimes off-beat financial advice.  Most of his posts are fast, entertaining reads, making it easy to whiz by his semi-frequent typos.

2. Citizen of the Month

Another neurotic Jew and his personal blog.  Neil Kramer is a talented writer with a gentle and melancholy sense of humor.  His posts are entertaining and thought-provoking without attempting to give advice of any sort.

3. Diamonds and Steak

My friend Winnie analyzes marketing messages with a keen eye and clean writing.  Her posts are short, sweet, and to the point.

4. Dooce

A personal blog about life and motherhood written by an ex-Mormon woman with lots of attitude.  As a 25-year-old single non-mother, I can’t relate to her posts from recent years, but I love her blog persona from about 10 years ago, when she was my age.

5. Livin’ Large With Larry

My friend Larry’s travel blog, which details his current trek through South America.  He has a detailed memory and a personable writing style suitable for storytelling.
