Best Blogs: Massachusetts Here’s a list of our favorite Massachusetts-based blogs and blog articles about Massachusetts. We’re starting small with a few of our favorites, but we’ll be adding more as we go along.
Best Blogs: Massachusetts, Local: Good Morning Gloucester
GMG is a local blog that’s written with knowledge, love, and respect. This is the type of thing that a tourism board or a chamber of commerce always try to achieve and can never quite get there. The photographs of the Fourth of July Horribles Parade are incredible. The blog serves the community with a calendar, local business listings, and a podcast. Good Morning Gloucester is so good that it even has its own Wikipedia page.
Best Blogs: Massachusetts, Art: Big Red & Shiny
Big Red is an art blog created in 2004 that features the best of the contemporary arts in Boston. It is run by a small but dedicated group of editors. The blog/site has style, great writing, and a unique perspective. The site also offers event and exhibition listings.
Best Blogs: Massachusetts, Travel Article: Young Adventuress
Liz Carlson is a world traveler, writer, and photographer who went to school in Massachusetts. She has a deep admiration for the state. We love her for her article on Western Massachusetts, an evocative virtual tour of the region. Featured in this photo documentary are the Montague Bookmill, Historic Deerfield, and the Sugar Maple Trailside Inn. We can’t wait to visit the Bookmill and Deerfield.
Best Blogs: Food, The Girl Who Ate Boston
Nicole Fleming is a Northeastern journalism student, foodie, and active food writer. Her food blog is stunning in design and features exceptional writing and food photography. She writes for the Boston Globe, WGBH and Edible Boston. That outrageous mile-high sandwich from the Little Goat Diner and the unusual molecular gastronomic creations from Moto are wonderfully seductive.
Best Blogs: Massachusetts: Food Articles: Man Fuel Blog
Youssef is a man who loves to cook and eat and write. His reviews of Massachusetts and Rhode Island restaurants has already proved inspirational. He has given us several restaurants to add to our to-do list and there will be more.
