Below is a list of five DC blogs you should check out, if you haven’t already.

Think Washington is boring? Well, don’t tell that to Somer Mathis of DCist- one of the area’s favorite blogs. DCist keeps your cultural appetite whetted with the local art and music scene, all while promoting other local blogs. Their photo of the day usually goes very well with your morning coffee.

Chris Cooley
The best tight end in the NFL plays for the Washington Redskins, married a cheerleader, hits beer bongs with DC 101’s Eliot in the Morning, and hangs out with Dale Earnhardt Jr. in the offseason. Damn. Thank goodness for us he has a blog to keep us up to speed on all of his self-made tattoos and off the field escapades. Captain Chaos has two cats and a dog named Dale Earnhardt.

Why I Hate DC
If you’re a DC local, or someone who has visited DC or even someone just looking for a good laugh – go here. Any site with this mission statment has got to be well-worth the read: “To mercilessly mock anything related to life in the Washington metro area, using as much profanity and sarcasm as possible.”

Written by the Washington Examiner‘s Patrick Gavin, FishbowlDC covers everything media-related in the nation’s capital. FishbowlDC scoops most all newsrooms before the editors know what hit them. They keep a running tally of all of the DC reporter moves on The Revolving Door and their hottest media types contest drives Washington conversation for weeks. Spend five minutes scanning Patrick’s morning reading list to be up to speed before your first meeting of the day.

Gilbert Arenas
Washington Wizards’ superstar Gilbert Arenas lets it all hang out on his blog and we love him for it. He talks about his recent dating adventures, takes shots at opponents, and usually makes news whenever he writes. Who would have ever thought this NBA superstar would be into Rock Band and blogging? Stay in DC Agent Zero!
