First off, there are some amazing, AMAZING writers out there in the blogosphere.
Secondly, many of my favorites don't necessarily speak my cultural language. They don't all have my world view.
Yet, they are as tasty as a recipe that I try from what, to me, is a completely foreign cuisine. I find myself looking forward to reading whatever they have to say, simply because they are exciting, delightful writers.

So, I'd like to invite you (in your comments) to hook me up! And, of course, to hook up all the folks who may click on this post.
Hook me up with a blog that you truly enjoy reading, even though it may (or may not) be outside your comfort zone. Someone whose blog you just look forward to, even though you might not find yourself hand in glove with their world view. (Or, perhaps, you agree with every single word they type.) But you just adore visiting that blog, for whatever the reason.
I don't mind that they might be obscure. I don't care if they're undiscovered. I don't care if they are way too popular for their own good!
What I DO care about is that you hook me (and any other readers who might stumble onto this post) up with folks who, in general, trip your trigger. I would also love it if, in your comments, you would share what it is about this blog that causes you to look forward to their posts.
I am really eager to read your comments, and read your recommendations! So, have at it! All I ask is that you nominate someone whose nomination will in no way benefit you: it's just a recommendation from a devoted reader, for the benefit of other folks who just adore a good read.
I can't do this without giving you my own recommendations, though, can I?
She's not particularly obscure, but I adore my Pearl Girl. Her writing, her sense of humor, make me believe that if we ever met in real life, we'd be fast friends.
I also love the Pioneer Woman (who is not exactly a shrinking violet, but who has wooed me with her self-effacing revelations, and with pictures of her basset hounds, Charlie and Walter).
And here's another: Mandy, of You've Got To Be Kidding Me, because she is a kindred spirit with her wry sense of humor in regard to the ad world, and her passionate love for her children.
I also look forward to many things that Tanis has to say, on her blog, the Attack of the Redneck Mommy, because even though our lives our very different, our love for our kids is the same.
So, tell me, who do ya love?
