Blogs I Like: Cultural Offering

Mar 9, 2012 | Better Blogging

You can learn a lot from a good example. That’s why every week I highlight one great blog. This week, it’s Kurt Harden’s Cultural Offering.

Can you say “eclectic” boys and girls? I knew you could. It’s a word I think of when I think of Cultural Offering.

Now, I’m sure there are people out there on the vast net who are eclectic but boring. And there are probably more than a few who share eclectic comments and posts on subject that I don’t care about at all. The reason I have Cultural Offering on my reader is that Kurt Harden’s choice of subjects and his take on them are perfect for me.

Kurt has what ad legend David Ogilvy called “a well-furnished mind,” which means that almost everything that shows up is interesting or challenging. It’s like reading spice and it perks up my days. When I asked Kurt to describe his blog, this is what he said.

“I refer to it as my sketchbook, my electronic filing cabinet. A blog of amusements and ideas about our culture.”

Usually I share representative posts from the last year or so to give you a sense of a blog I like. In this case, I’m simply going to point you to the home page so you can see what’s been posted in the last day or so. I’m betting you won’t scroll down more than once before you find something interesting.

Read, enjoy, and learn.
