Art by Verde

Verde of the blog,"Art by Verde," 'has an eye' for everything that is lovely, colorful, and natural (ala Mother Natural). This talent certainly comes in handy, as she is a professional published artist from New Hampshire.

Her articles are refreshing, as she delves into the mundane, her creative thoughts, and sometimes into beach sand. She has a particular affection for avian creatures, capturing them in her bold artwork.

She began writing this blog in February of 2007, when she was cold and bored. Let us be thankful she did.

New Hampshire...Love it or Leaf it

Lucie Bryar at "New Hampshire...Love it or Leaf it," enjoys exploring New Hampshire slow and easy, on foot, via bike or water route. Articles run the gamut of places to go, and techniques to use (i.e. "Basic Paddling Techniques").

Although only three months old, this blog has great potential. After just reading a few articles, I've already discovered several new hiking and biking trails!

This is a "must-read" for anyone interested in New Hampshire's outdoors.

Turn Down That Stupid Music!

Craig of "Turn Down That Stupid Music!" is a New Hampshirite whose heart remains on Oahu.

He lives and blogs from Meredith. The subtitle warns you that "you'll find news about obscure music from Hawaii to Mongolia," along with other stories.

If you are into the eclectic, are musically dangerous, or simply enjoy reading about New Hampshire, this blog is for you!

I'll be visiting again.

Mike Lynch Cartoons

Mike Lynch of "Mike Lynch Cartoons" blog is a magazine gag cartoonist. He has to be. His masthead subtitle says so. Even his avatar is a cartoon.

He commands you to spit your gum out and pay attention. He lives in Milton, New Hampshire. Somehow those two statements feel connected.

His writing and cartoons are sometimes campy (not the boyscout kind) and very fun.

He's been blogging since 2006 and I just found him! He's a keeper.

Film New Hampshire

Touted as the "Official blog of the New Hampshire Film and Television Office," Film New Hampshire was begun in January of 2008. The articles including New Hampshire film screenings, lectures, innovative vlogs, job opportunities, casting calls, and more.

This blog should be of interest to anyone in the video or graphic production fields, movie or documentary producers, mainstream and independent moviemakers, both professional and aspiring actors and actresses, and local film afficianados.

Even folks who are not in any of the above categories would enjoy reading about television series, sitcoms and possibilities.

A fun read.

The Endicott Dispatch

Tom R. Daggett is a Maniac errr Mainite who now lives in or near Concord New Hampshire, apparently in the Endicott Building.

His blog, The Endicott Dispatch, is mostly a report on what is going on at the Endicott Building where he rents an apartment. However, on occasion events occurring near this building are also mentioned.

You'd think such a topic would not be particularly interesting, however the rantings of this upset tenent may surprise you.

He also blogs over at "Inside Tom's Brain."

The Granite Geek

David Brooks of the Granite Geek is a scientist extraordinaire with a New Hampshire twist. Do you want to know if "big people schuss faster?"

Or do you possibly want to learn about the latest in tech products. This blog is where you will find out.

No subject is too difficult, no problem too complex for Dave. He is a "man of steel" when it comes to brain-power. Stop by and say hi.

He is one of the "Best of New Hampshire Blogs"

P.S.: I have no idea how I missed blogging about him, since I've been a fan, and a regular reader of his blog for a while now.

The Suburban Ecstacies

Seth Abramson at The Suburban Ecstacies is primarily a poet. He received my JD from Harvard Law School in 2001, and a BA in English from Dartmouth College in 1998.

And so with that educational combination how could he resist the lure of writing about politics too. His blog aptly reflects his eclectic interests.

Although not currently living in New Hampshire, and so his roots are here. You will consider your visit to his blog thoroughly worthwhile.
