Back in the old days before I took a break from blogging, I had a healthy list of blogs I read on a regular basis. Sadly many of them are gone for various reasons. I read once that the average lifespan of a blog is two years, so I guess I shouldn’t be surprised. Since then I’ve stumbled on and become a regular reader of several blogs, but I’m looking for more. I’m looking for some blog recommendations.
What I’m looking for, specifically, are blog recommendations for bipolar, depression or blogs that focus on mental health in general. However, if you know of any “must read” blogs that aren’t related to mental health, I’m open to hearing about those too, especially if they are humor blogs.
I’m depending on all of you other bloggers and blog readers out there to help me out. I look forward to reading your recommendations.

top ten list for the day is a good one, interesting and sometimes funny and usually unusual. there are probably more, but im too tired to look on my reader!
That’s okay, kat, since I know you have incredible taste (you read this blog) I’m going to head over to the list you have on your blog and check them out.
ok beware tho, theres a few im planning on culling, just havent gotten to it yet. oh well. and good luck! (yes, and btw, you also have great taste, reading this blog and all lol)
For a totally different perspective on living with bipolar check out Tom Wootton and watch the video in the upper left corner. He has some very interesting ideas. Here’s the link below. He has a course also offered on that page so please don’t think I am advertising for him. But for some fresh ideas, pro or con, watch the video. His perspective is unique. http://www.bipolaradvantage.com/index.php://blogs.psychcentral.com/bipolar-advantage/
Here’s a link to his blog posts: http://www.bipolaradvantage.com/blog.php
I’ll let you know as I come up with more.
See you next post.
Thank you. I’ll check them out
Two years? Most people I know don’t make it past a week, ha ha. I guess those of us that keep going for years sort of skew the numbers; my Livejournal is almost 13 years old and still going, and the (now) bipolar one is 3 and a half years.
Also, no specific recommendations right now, outside of the Bipolar Curious blog if you’re not following her (http://thebipolarcuriousblog.com/). I’m sort of in the same boat of wanting to find some new folks to read, but… tired, and way behind on network-related vetting in the first place. ><
I see a lot that last about a month. Someone logs in and starts one and you can tell how excited they are then after about 4 – 5 posts they vanish. Thank you for the link. I’ve heard of her but never checked her blog out, but I’ll take a look. Thank you
I’ll have to look through my list but most of the blogs I read are the same one’s Kat has listed.
Kat has a good list, but if you think of others please let me know. Thank you for stopping by.

Hi Bradley, I just want to let you know how happy I am to see you again, and that I’ve thought about you and missed you in the meantime. xoxo LPS
It’s good to be back and good to reconnect with you, Laura. I have you on my WordPress Reader now so I won’t lose track of you.
