Suri's Burn Book

"Allie Hagan, the author of this witty—if occasionally overly snarky—blog has noted that Suri Cruise started rolling her eyes at age two. So why not see the world of celebrity tots through her eyes? Here the always-fashionable six-year-old applauds Alice Fey and Louis Bullock but more often takes aim, as the subtitle says, at those who disappoint her: Violet Affleck, Harper Beckham and, continually, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt." --Susan Toepfer, Entertainment/Features Editor

Under the Stinkwood Tree

“I enjoy a blog called Under the Stinkwood Tree. It’s written by an insightful woman in her early sixties about topics of interest to More readers: elderly parents and young-adult children, yoga, life after breast cancer, comfortable clothes. Her observations on everyday scenes (on the street, in the subway) are funny.” --Mary Beth Protomastro, Copy Chief

Amy Davidson's blog at "The New Yorker"

"For a smart, surprising take on the politics and news of the day, Amy Davidson of The New Yorker is my first stop." --Judy Coyne, Executive Editor

Underground New York Public Library

"This blog makes me have faith that people still—and will continue to—read print books. Plus, what better place to choose your next read than on New York City's subway?" --Gabrielle Sirkin, Assistant Photo Editor

Into the Gloss

"I’m hooked on the voyeuristic interviews (complete with medicine cabinet snapshots!) featured on this insider-y beauty blog." --Nikki Ostasiewski, Associate Beauty Editor

Seth's Blog

Seth Godin is a maverick entrepreneur and the bestselling author of 15 books including "All Marketers Are Liars" and, most recently, "The Icarus Deception." His blog is a banquet of juicy and unusual ideas, with posts about creativity, leadership, social media and human nature. Here's a sample:


Two kinds of mistakes

There is the mistake of overdoing the defense of the status quo, the error of investing too much time and energy in keeping things as they are.

And then there is the mistake made while inventing the future, the error of small experiments gone bad.

We are almost never hurt by the second kind of mistake and yet we persist in making the first kind, again and again.

James Wolcott on

"For smart takes on politics (liberal) and culture (high and low), I like James Wolcott’s blog on Vanity Fair's Web site." --Judy Coyne, Executive Editor

What's Alan Watching?

"The TV critic Alan Sepinwall gives pithy, insightful recaps/reviews of my favorite shows on his blog, What's Alan Watching. It also attracts funny, intelligent commenters." --Nanette Varian, Senior Features Editor


"Hayefield is a garden blog by Nan Ondra, the author of six gardening books and an accomplished photographer. She posts only twice a month about doings at her exuberant four-acre garden in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, but her offerings are definitely worth the wait.  The queen of unexpected plant combinations, Ondra serves up images that emphasize shape and texture as much as flower color. And in true gardening spirit, each fall she shares seeds with her readers. If you want a break from gardening, take a look at the pictures of her two headstrong alpacas, Daniel and Duncan." --Nancy Stedman, Deputy Editor, Health

Louis vs. Rick

"When I'm lookign for a good laugh, I check out Louis vs. Rick. The author of the blog, Shayne Cyr,  tells the story of a man who taught his cat how to use instant messaging. His blog is a record of their IM conversations. I think the idea of a cat talking to his owner at work is hilarious, and I'm not even a cat person!" --Gabrielle Sirkin, Assistant Photo Editor

The Happiness Project

"Happiness can be a sappy subject, but not in the hands of Gretchen Rubin at The Happiness Project. Bonus: Interesting comments from her readers." --Judy Coyne, Executive Editor

Joy the Baker

"Joy the Baker is one of my favorite food blogs. I love that the author, Joy Wilson, posts frequently and offers a unique recipe each time. Her photographs are great, and her tone is light and carefree, which makes the blog very relatable." --Nicole Papantoniou, Assistant Web Editor
