It's written by bloggers, so OBVIOUSLY, it's awesome. Really, the editors did a great job of choosing material that is well written and edited, even if it's not always perfect. The bloggers represented are, typically, not professional writers, but they're all still amazing. I was blown away by the quality, although I should know by now that bloggers are great writers.
These posts are all well written, insightful, humorous, inspiring, etc. I found the political commentary to be interesting, the family stories to be touching, and I laughed out loud more than once. Also, and this isn't really BlogHer's fault because it IS a women's media company and kind of known for the mommy blogs, there was a LOT of parenting stuff. That was the one thing that I wasn't totally appreciative of. I mean, it's not like because I'm not a mommy I can't appreciate reading a great post about family, but one breastfeeding post would have been plenty.
I definitely recommend reading it and I highly recommend that if you DO read it, you do so in ebook format. It's available in paperback, but I loved reading it on my ereader and being able to go straight to links and add blogs immediately instead of having to wait till I was in front of a computer. And there are several cute cartoons and pictures and other links that are best accessed on an ereader.
