Highlighting Niche Blogs was always one of the most fun and interesting parts of maintaining Infomavens Desktop. Sometimes, we found blogs that were highly specific or outrageous or hilarious. This time, I thought maybe we’d ease back into it with a site that is a little more standard. The OfficeSupplyGeek blog has actually expanded since I first saw it to a full site focused on various office supply products. Like any other site that collects information about cool tools, they examine, review and discuss supplies that make office work easier, more efficient or innovative. I know, this isn’t exactly an “OMG that’s awesome, I’m going to share this link with all my friends” type niche blog. But well, I too have an obsession with office supplies, particularly writing implements, so I am personally fascinated by this site. And btw, my birthday is coming.

Ever get a text from your mom or dad, and think WTF? Maybe they said something ridiculous? Maybe it was something really mom-like and she shouldn’t have that kind of reach when you’re not home?

I read about today’s niche blog this morning in Entertainment Weekly Magazine, and decided to check it out.  Some of these posts had me laughing out loud – at work!  I’m going to get caught blogging if I keep checking this site – but don’t let that stop you. Tons more at When Parents Text.

Sold

Mom: are you coming home this weekend?
Me: I haven’t decided yet..
Mom: I am making your bed up and making cookies and all of your favorite foods and lining your pillows with ten dollar bills

 

TP

mom: just an fyi i had to buy more toilet paper today we have some serious butt wipers in this house

 

Thinking of You

Mom: The deli next door is cooking bacon and I thought of you. Miss you.

Garbanzo

Mom: Have you ever noticed how much garbanzo beans look like little butts? Like being mooned by soup

 

 

There’s sooo many more, I had a hard time deciding when to stop sharing them… Do yourself some good, and check these out.

Lately, we’ve had babies on the brain here at Infomavens’ Desktop, and in honor of the newest (and certainly most adorable) info-lover, today’s niche blog is a collection of silly baby photos from the folks over at I Can Has Cheezburger.  I’m only going to put up one of the pictures here – but do yourself a favor and check out a few more; some of them are sooo cute!

Pretty cute!

Too fun not to share: My Jello Americans.
These women are artists who make lots of scrumptious-looking Jello treats… and lots of somewhat repulsive ones too. But whether you think they look delicious or disgusting, there’s no denying this: they are amazing!

Niche blog: Unitard Universe August 6, 2010

This week’s niche blog, Unitard Universe, is an impressive collection of over 150 pages of photos of Celebrities, Musicians, Superheros, Fashion Models, and Pop Culture Icons all wearing the rarely flattering, usually disturbing, sometimes nightmarish, Unitard. This is where I’d typically say, “Enjoy!” however, perhaps today it is better to say, “Good Luck!”

Some are old photos... but were unitards ever really acceptable style?


Alicia Keys - not the worst of the bunch...


Oh, but then there's Antonio Sabato Jr. Yikes!


Sometimes, the unitard is a fashion statement... (this one is Dolce & Gabbana)


And of course, the always classic, Charo!

There are few things that the Infomavens like better than blogs tracking grammatical mistakes. And so for your reading enjoyment, we present: Literally, A Web Log;  “an English language grammar blog tracking abuse of the word ‘literally'”. Enjoy!

Niche Blog Friday: The Leila Texts January 15, 2010

Oddly intriguing and somewhat voyeuristic, comes a blog based on a technological glitch — the Leila Texts. Leila, a young woman living in New York, receives many texts on the Verizon network intended for other Leilas. Why? No one knows. But she decided to compile them and for some reason and I can’t stop reading them! It’s an interesting way to start a Friday. Check the blog out here.
