All that comes to mind right now are sites like American Thinker, Pajamasmedia, and Zombietime. Good stuff, mostly, but it’s quite political, and odds are good that it’s not your kind of political.
Also, it looks like somebody et your site and put up a dummy. If so, my condolences.

You might want to take a look at Fresh Yarn. Lots of good personal essays.

I think what you want are blogs. Is there anything in particular you are looking to read – political commentary? International news? Quirky fictitious short stories? Gardening how-to?

If you’re in the market for sassy, biting humor and parody, Cracked.com might be just the thing.
