Longform.org

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging very much is that there aren't that many solid personal essays online, and its hard to discuss something with you when you haven't read it. Most of my favorite essays are in magazines that you need subscription for to read online or that aren't online at all, like many literary magazines or book collections. Blogs have become a font for mini essays, but they are by nature short, and so less meandering and ruminative and personal.

I just found this site (via Slate.com) called Longform.com.. Here's the description: "Longform.org posts new and classic non-fiction articles, curated from across the web, that are too long and too interesting to be read on a web browser."

Looks like they have a variety of stuff from straight nonfiction and reporting to personal essay. I'll let you know if I see anything especially good.
