World Wide Words
Fabulous language facts in neat weekly doses. Impress your friends with etymological detail, and pepper your conversation with words like ostrobogulous, cunicular and obnubilate. If you fancy a challenge, you could even pick a few favourite terms and squeeze them into an LJ post. It might keep the acronychal informavores among you off the streets, at any rate.
Modern maps are cool, and old maps even more so (see Old London Maps if you don't believe me), but this blog brings together all sorts of cartographical oddities: anything presented in map form is fair and fascinating game. I particularly liked this Road Map of Success, which graphically illustrates the way that you'll never reach the glowy stringed instrument of success unless you learn to avoid pitfalls such as Bohemianism, Bad Habits, and people telling you "You're The Hit of the Age".
There's also an obstacle marked "Shiftlessness", which I originally misread as "Shirtlessness". Clearly the latter is quite the opposite to an obstacle to success, especially if the success you're looking for is appearing on my mental Map of Hot Totty* -- as far as I recall, it's straight ahead at Flatteringly Cut Trousers and a hard left at Gratuitous Homoeroticism. Just ask Zachary Quinto if you get lost...
