Seriously though, whether you’re entering winter on the Northern Hemisphere or looking forward to summer on the other side, we all need a good laugh now and then. And what’s easier to laugh at than people like you and me?

So if you’re in the mood for some amateurish entertainment, look no further.

Be sucked in by some of the funniest amateur blogs out there and don’t take this seriously. We may not mean the same ‘amateur’ you thought of. Remember, it’s all in your head.

1. Slightly Drunk

amateur blogs

These are the tales of a slightly obnoxious guy from Canada, who has a tendency to get himself into miserable situations. The plot usually involves his family, most of all his stubborn father of Scottish origin. SD publishes every Friday afternoon and his posts are quite addictive. Unfortunately, he often takes breaks of several months at a time and now is such a time.


However, this gives you a chance to catch up on his previous adventures, including how he lost the love of his life or his time spent working in the UK. Highly entertaining and definitely funny!

2. Ugly Outfits New York

A photoblog dedicated to bad fashion spotted in New York. Almost makes you feel better with your own wardrobe choices, doesn’t it? On the other hand, you really don’t want to see some of these pictures. Really. What makes people choose these outfits and who are their friends?

3. Awkward Family Photos

Family photos are a very rich source of entertainment. Every family has at least one fake ‘we all love each other so much’ photo or worse, a shot where everyone looks miserable. If you no longer want to feel bad about your own family’s group shots gone bad, browse this collection of truly questionable pictures.

4. The Hot Librarian

You don’t often come across a blogger who has been around more or less since 2003. And here we have a hot one, too. The hot librarian’s articles are amusing and witty. She rambles on about her life and the things she gets to observe, sometimes in her position as a librarian, but mostly as a rather naughty and merciless woman. Entertaining for sure!

5. The Peevery

Meet Michelle, the peeved one, and thank her for this blog. Read about other peoples’ pet peeves or submit your own and help make all of us smile (or hide in shame). This is for those of you who hate to read long articles and just need a quick fix of reality (read: Schadenfreude). Your own life feels so much better now, doesn’t it?

Don’t have enough, yet? If your belly doesn’t hurt by now, you should also have a look at these MakeUseOf articles:

Where do you get your smile fix from?
