Anyone know of any good blogs?

Anyone know of any good blogs? I'm an on/off reader of weblogs and find it difficult to be kept interested by any for more than a couple of months. I realise that bloggers have a lot to say, in the main they are articulate and opinionated, but not many seem to actually do anything with their lives.

I find that my interest in a weblog will soon wane if all that it consists of are links and opinions of books/movies/music. Are there any bloggers out there who have out-of-the-ordinary lives? Active people? Travelling people? Please let me know.

And before you comment I am in the process of setting up my own blog in my own attempt to fill a gap.

I've come across lots actually, but, as far as travel blogs, I usually get bored of hearing about someone who I don't know describe places that I've never been. Something is simply lost in the translation. I'm more interested in the stories of life which are universally common.

Derek hosts some really great story machines.

Greg Knauss does An Entirely Other Day--one of my favorite reads--which deals with a lot of daily life stuff including raising a child.

There are others, but I'm late for work!

There was a thread here a few months ago on favorite blogs. Since there are over 100 posts in the thread, I won't even attempt to summarize it now. Many, many great blogs were pointed out there. Read it. Learn it. Love it.

There was also this thread more recently.

you're not clear about whether you're looking for blogs or old-style link-driven weblogs but here are my favorites of both kinds (heavily skewed to weblogs).

you might also be interested in neil gaiman's journal (which would cover books and out-of-the-ordinary lives).

I remember seeing an activism blog a month or two ago--somebody posted it here, or on a blog somewhere else. And I forgot to bookmark it.

Anyone have any clue what it was? Somebody described it as the slashdot for activism, or something. I think.

Gram,
You are probably thinking of The MonkeyFist Collective.

I think Gram is actually thinking of Metropolitc.net, which runs using the Slash engine. Although Monkeyfist is keen.
