I’m not gonna play favorites or reveal who I absolutely loathe (you know who you are) among my peers in the adult blogging world. So instead, a list of the ten best non-porn blogs and bloggers of 2k11.
10. Hunter Moore & Is Anyone Up?
Technically, it could be considered porn, but looking at some of these poor sexters naked (after they’ve had their nude iPhone pics or webcam screenshots sent in by jilted ex-partners), IsAnyoneUp.com is more of a comedy site than anything else. Plus, site founder Hunter Moore (pictured, left) has some sort of entertaining drunken meltdown every night after someone threatens to sue him, the most recent being Facebook.
9. Megan Amram
Megan is one of the most consistently funny people on the internet (if you’re not following her on Twitter, I’m sorry). I discovered her through her Glee audition video, though:
8. The Awl
Thoughtful, quick takes on news, culture, entertainment, memes, and more.
7. Erik Rhodes’ Tumblr
I guess this could count as porn, too. But, not really. For an honest and depressing take on gay porn, as told by one of the best gay porn stars in the world, check it out. If you don’t, Erik might kill himself.
Comedian Rob Delaney and filmmaker Bruce LaBruce are just two of the contributors who make Vice a daily read.
5. Daniel Villareal at Queerty
Even with the new ownership, Queerty still doesn’t really know what it’s doing a lot of the time, but there’s at least one person, Daniel, who has a clue and can actually write.
4. Brenden Shucart
He took on Bruce LaBruce, and he also wrote one of the best articles about being diagnosed with HIV that I’ve ever read. (You better believe it’s worth a read if I just linked to the Huffington Post.)
Duh. The .gif capital of the internet.
2. Big Ole Titties
Big Ole Titties (a.k.a. Wanda LaQuanda) is the absurdly crass African-American woman who created her own language on Twitter which, if you can translate it, will either offend you or delight you. (Also, she’s not real.) Example:
The #1 blog of 2k11?
1. Hipster Runoff
While on the surface it might look like a blog about indie bands and alt celebrities, it isn’t really about those things at all. Written entirely by someone named “Carles” (who made his own brilliant end of the year list, and who appears to be the most tortured person in existence), this is the best writing on the internet, or anywhere. I’m embarrassed to be writing anything knowing that he is writing also. Start here. And here. Or here. Or here. And then here.
