Since a lot of us spend our free time updating our Facebook status, Tweeting, reblogging Tumblr posts, and keeping up with the world online, it can be hard to connect with people in real life. But from time to time, online activity can lead to relationships with real, live humans. On Sunday, the New York Times profiled a blogger-commenter romance in the Style Section.

We’ve posted about amazing Tumblr blogs that we love before, but I have a new favorite that’s obviously a little particular to my tastes. F*ck Yeah! Ryan Gosling posts random photos of my hunk of burning love with hilarious smooth come-ons like, “Hey girl, I heard you like beards so I grew one last night,” “Hey girl, I heard you like songs so I wrote you one,” and “Hey girl, when I tackle some body I think I’m giving you the biggest hug ever.” The genius behind the blog THAT I SHOULD HAVE THOUGHT OF, also posts for F*ck Yeah! Anne Hathaway, which is funny, but not nearly as sexy. Keep reading »

Model of the moment Coco Rocha has a blog: Oh So Coco. The 20-year-old, Toronto-born model, who once famously Irish stepdanced down Jean Paul Gaultier’s runway, offers a peek behind the scenes at days in the life of a fashion plate.

Tumblr is the awesome blogging platform out there right now. Unlike Typepad or Blogger, you don’t need to know a lick of HTML to post thoughts or images onto your own blog from your computer or phone.

Even if you just want a place to post your favorite photos for friends and family to see, or compile favorite quotes, Tumblr makes it idiot proof, and the more bloggers you follow on your dashboard, the more cool information, pictures, and articles you’ll discover. After the jump, some of my favorite Tumblogs to follow.

Tracy Clark-Flory wrote an interesting piece for Salon’s Broadsheet this week about the increasing number of sex writers facing termination at major newspapers and websites like Fleshbot and the Village Voice, saying, “These are scary times for sex writers.” Our own Susannah Breslin says, “Sometimes people become sex writers because they screw a lot, not necessarily because they can write well.” With that in mind, we’ve compiled a short list of some sex writers who DO write well and should be on your radar, recession lay (offs) be damned!
