Inspiration and Very Important Things

So, First World Problems.

When I decided to start this blog I picked WordPress mainly because almost the entire ecosystem at work uses Google products (which Blogger is a part) and I’m usually logged into those with ‘work’ credentials. That’s a different world and things there stay there.

I had one or two friends using WordPress and it seems decent enough. The main downer seems to be that a large number of the blogs that I follow are on the Blogger platform … pretty much the majority. Following them in a browser is easy enough – they are all bookmarked, but it does make it a little harder to share these because I don’t seem to be able to add them to the blog-roll on my home-page. On the plus side I’ve found some hidden gems on WordPress, on the minus it’s harder for visitors to find some of my favourites.

With this in mind I’ve listed below five blogs which I consider absolutely essential for various reasons. All utterly compelling in my opinion, and each an overload of inspiration and content. I could only aspire to produce something even close …

I won’t describe each one, but I can’t recommend enough that anyone (of the dozens :-)) who spends two minutes here spend considerably longer on these.

Each one of these taps directly into the mother-lode as far as I’m concerned and a post on any of the above is enough to make my week.

On the miniatures front I’m tackling a few things. Westfalia Miniatures, Dark Sword, Otherword and some randoms. I’ll aim to post a WIP or two in the next few days.
