The Best Part of Waking Up

It's very easy to get lost in all the negative blah blah that goes on around the net and in the world of comics and entertainment. You know, "This books sucks" "This book is GOING to suck" "Company A are just a bunch of Greedy F's and Company B is ruining my childhood" "This press release is so dumb" "Artist X is no good" blah blah blah. You've seen it, I've seen it.  If you're not careful, it's easy to get sucked in and fight the battles that will never find a winner.

One of the things that keep me on a constant positive high is the daily art rush I get from checking my Google Reader Blog Subscriptions.  Every time I find a new artists blog, I copy the address and drop it into my subscription list.  Over the last few years, I've compiled a list of 350+ blogs and it's growing every day. When I get into the office each morning, the first stop I make is Google Reader and I usually have bout 50 updates. That's at LEAST 50 pieces of art that kick starts my day and keeps me in a great mood.  It inspires me to no end.

So, I added each blog (one at a time) to this bundle here for you all to be able to see all the feeds I follow. Hopefully you'll get as much joy as I do.

I am seriously enjoying this list already. Thank you so much for posting it to your blog. Have you checked out www.paperwalker.blogspot.com ? This guy is in Austria and does character design and animation work. He's got a whole Duck Tales flare going with his comic Space Ducks.

In His Peace,
Richard

Hey, I wanted to say thank you so much for turning me onto the Google Reader. I know that wasn't really the point of your post but I've been thinking for awhile now that I needed something like this. Traveling all over web to check out blog posts gets tiring but now I've got them all in one place, as well as other sites and whatnot I like to keep up with. It's a real streamliner for my mornings.

Keep up the great work!
