Ask Design Mom: Cool Man Blogs

August 19, 2008

So I’ve received several emails over the last few months asking if there are “Design Mom Blog Equivalents” for Dads/Men. And the answer is Yes. Absolutely. Here’s a great one that Jordan sent to me recently:

A Continuous Lean. Very well done. And very male. A couple of days ago, the post was about a flickr pool featuring appliances that had been taken apart. (I snagged the picture above from that article.)

Another one that men seem to love — even though it isn’t authored exclusively by males, is NotCot. The black background definitely keeps it from ever feeling frou-frou.

What are your favorite cool dude sites?

Bless your heart, Design Mom! I was one of the ones that emailed a while back with that very question. Both these sites look very cool and I’ve already bookmarked them for further reading.

Don’t get me wrong, I LOVE your blog, along with several others I’ve come across as a result of reading yours (coveiter, blackeiffel, and a ton of others), but a little bit of testosterone every once in a while is def a good thing… :)

Now I have reading for me in addition to my wife and kids…thanks again!

I love reading this blog ( it reminds me of my husband and grandpa with reminders of what it means to be a good scout.

Its a great website with gifts for everyone under $50.

Every boy should be a scout it is the best for teaching them honor and honesty.
