Long before blogging hit the online world, Bill Swislow created a site documenting his own set of interests including but not limited to, every homemade Gyro sign in Chicago, sock monkeys and the Great American Root Beer Taste Test.
I'd been a long-time fan of the site but along the way stopped checking in as he took a break from updating the site. Luckily for all of us, not only is the site still online but there are now periodic updates with new content.
The site itself is frustratingly non-linear (you somehow always get lost in his links, but in a good way) and decidedly non-designed but that's part of the charm. Besides, how can you not like a site that highlights these little known public stone carvings along Chicago's Lakefront?
