30 Days Blogging Challenge: Day 17 – My Favourite Blogs
There is a saying that to become a good writer, you must also be an avid reader. Unless you read, your writing will always lack the soul. For writers, reading the works of others also provides networking opportunities and avenues of sharing knowledge and exchanging ideas.
Since I spend a major part of my day online, reading blogs is one of the main daily tasks I perform. There are several blogs/websites I regularly visit. Sharing some of them, so that you can enjoy them too (I am sure most of you already do):
1. Bong Pen by Tanmay Da – for the love of Bengali creative work, do not miss this awesome blog.
2. Heritage Structure WB – The one site for the magnificent history of Kolkata
3. Shaktian Space – Have been following Shakti’s blog since I joined Twitter. No prizes for guessing why.
4. The Hungry Reader – Vivek symbolises everything books on Twitter. His blog is a must follow for all book lovers.
5. PRS India – for all information of the apex law-making body of India.
6. Anirban’s Blog – Beautiful photographs covering Bengal. He is brilliant with the camera, but needs more patience and maturity, though.
7. News laundry – Well, this is not exactly a blog, but this website has a great collection of articles on Indian politics and media. And some great interviews. Do not miss the satire show Clothesline.
8. Scroll Dot In – A website that serves like a curator of articles on policy matters, social issues and commentary of current Indian landscape across sectors. Good to read different viewpoints, irrespective of whether you agree or not.
9. Debsuvra – He is a talented kid (well, I guess so). He writes well and hails from Jalpaiguri.
10. Maa, Mati, Manush – Yes, I am shamelessly promoting a website I am in charge of. Do not go by the name. Click on the link and discover the content. Thank you.
