British blogs: male edition

A short roundup of that rare phenomenon {at least for this reader}, the male blogger...

Man Make Home {spotted on Living Etc's fab new blog, Life.Style.Etc} is written by an American in London with impeccable taste, or so say I. Above photos by Carl Kleiner.

Another American in London, I suspect many of you are already drooling over photographer Brian Ferry's blog, The Blue Hour {professional portfolio here}. I'm thinking of lots of adjectives for how his photos make me feel, and I'm not sure they're for public disclosure. Oh, and I was pleased to see him recently namechecked on my favourite food blog, Orangette - isn't it a small {blog} world?

Obsessilicious is written by Cardiff-dweller Griffo68, a major Eames fan with a penchant for buying classic chairs, and then more chairs...if you love mid-century modern style you will love this blog. Above photos from Flickr, credits unknown.

If you are based in the UK, or are a British expat elsewhere, and missed the opportunity last time, feel free to add your blog to the list below - no duplicate entries please from the previous list and no business blogs - this list will be capped at 50. And if you have a British blog you love, please let me know in the comments. You can see my previous recommendations here, here and here, or check my blogroll for more.

beautiful yes- the blue hour is astonishing- it's like someone male took the photos I would like to be able to take.

I can't link it to my blog roll though for some reason.

thanks very much for these

Thank you so much for including me and the kind words! I'm very flattered!

Us male bloggers are a bit thin on the ground.

Being both a British and a male blogger definitely makes you a bit of a Loch Ness Monster in the blogosphere.

I love this list of manly blogs. Can't add mine to your list - would love to be added as an expat Brit in Dubai if you can fit me in.
