I was reading a post over at Pork's Expanse! about taking this time during a lull (lull? what lull I am blogging my tail off over here!) in blog posts to read or find a blog you don't often read.
Frankly I think that is a brilliant idea. There are a lot of quality blogs out there waiting to be read.
So to that end I wanted to revive an old favorite feature of the Other Side, "The Best Blog You Are Not Reading"
The idea behind TBBYANR is simple. Find a blog in my blog roll that has under 40 followers and let you all know about it. Why 40? Because back in the early days I languished at 40 followers forever. While I was appreciative of every single one (and still am) sometimes it felt I was talking to myself.
Today's TBBYANR is Beyond the Pale Gate. http://ramblingsfrombeyondthepale.blogspot.com/
Very much an oldschool blog, focusing on the OSR.
The author's (David) style is self-described as train of thought, but that is fine with me.
What really made choose this one was his recent post on Copyleft, http://ramblingsfrombeyondthepale.blogspot.com/2012/10/im-copyleft-type-of-guy.html
I don't totally agree with him on all points, but I agree with what he is saying in principle. Plus my current "game" computer is running Linux now as well so I can relate.
I also liked the fact that despite his self professed Old School leanings he professed to really enjoying the Pathfinder Basic Box, http://ramblingsfrombeyondthepale.blogspot.com/2012/09/blasphemy-from-my-month-of-madness.html
And he likes Jimi Hendrix! So that is always a plus in my book.
If I had one complaint it is the background to his blog. It looks awesome, but it makes it difficult to read some of the posts.
ETA: He has changed that and it is much easier to read! My old eyes are thankful.
So please. Check this blog out and if you do, drop David a note and let him know what you like about his blog.
If you have a blog that you think would be be good for TBBYANR, let me know!
