Heard of Thought Catalog? It's a "no brow and nonpartisan" cultural blog that I recently stumbled across that features some interesting writing (emphasis mine, to point out that a lot of interesting blogs have interesting things to communicate in a rather mundane tone).
While I can't claim that the entire site is 100% awesomesauce, there are a selection of pieces I thought were interesting, including the essay that first brought me to the site, "You Should Date an Illiterate Girl," by Charles Warnke. It's so well-written that it almost depresses me that Warnke is only 21. Le sigh.
