Favorite New Blogs of 2009

I’ve been considering the subject of this post for some time; it’s been tricky attempting to call out favorites. I think of all my blog friends as one would children, loved equally for their different personalities and styles. That’s why the more the merrier since you really CANNOT be too inspired can you? But on the other hand, there are definitely a few sites I’m always excited to see in my feed reader, and in looking at their posts, I’m always like DAMN I wish I’d found that! I also think it’s worth pointing out that all of these blogs average 5 posts a day or less too. For me, it’s darn near impossible to keep up with high-volume blogs, no matter how stunning their content, because I’d have to spend nearly all my time on that one site. What can I say? I loves me some variety, plus it’s really nice getting to know someone’s specific point of view and than can be a little harder to find in a larger blog. Without further ado, my heart-quickening, drool-inducing picks from blogs started in 2009:
