Everyone knows that laughter is the best medicine. These busy days of our 20s and 30s can be stressful, so it’s important to keep laughing. Thankfully, there is so much humorous content online!
While everyone has heard of hugely popular sites like Cracked and The Onion, maybe you’re looking for something new to tickle your funny bone. So, here’s a list of the most popular humor blogs you should check out!
Our first pick is a blog full of adorable, hilarious comics accented by personal anecdotes. It covers any and all topics, from interacting with strangers to making life decisions. Every post is so #relatable, especially to Millennials! I have spent a ton of time scrolling through the blog since I discovered it.
Suggested Post: in which I am murdered by my ambition
If you love the humor of this is not that blog, I’d recommend reading Hyperbole and a Half by Allie Brosh. It’s an incredibly popular book that also features dry humor and comics that every Millennial can identify with on some level. Buy it here!
Pleated Jeans is great because it finds funny stuff on the Internet (photos, YouTube videos, and more!) and posts about it multiple times a day. If you visit this site on the regular, there’s no chance you’ll miss out on the latest online hilarity. Jeff Wysaski, the owner of this blog, also writes his original content, which I think is even better than the stuff he finds!
Suggested Post: I Renamed Some of the Paint Colors at the Hardware Store
3. The Bloggess
Jenny Lawson is The Bloggess, a queen of dark humor. Despite combating mental illness, she finds the humorous side to everything in life. This makes The Bloggess an excellent role model for others with mental illness, so if that’s you, I especially urge you to check out her blog.
If you love The Bloggess’s combination of humor and discussion of mental illness, I’d highly recommend reading No Really, We WANT You to Laugh! It is a compilation of six people telling their story of combating mental illness through the art of standup comedy. You’ll laugh, you’ll feel many feels, and you’ll laugh some more. Buy it on Amazon here!
This blog is run by Donna Irwin, a self-proclaimed “blogger, rocker, pessimist, and humorist.” Her pessimism is apparent in her blog’s subtitle but does not dull her humor. Her blog is the place where she posts funny content based on the average experiences of her life. The suggested post below is relatable for all Millennials who feel like a child trapped an adult’s body. (I’m going to take a guess and assume that’s a lot of you.)
Suggested Post: Adult Supervision Required
Hopefully, if you’re in a relationship, you’re with someone who makes you laugh. This blog is a compilation of submitted stories about those funny relationship moments from all over the world. Full of honesty and hilarity, these anecdotes are sure to make you chuckle.
My favorite part is that there’s an LGBTQ+ category! I love that the site recognizes all romantic relationships. If you’re in a relationship, I’m sure you’ll relate to some submissions.
Maybe you’ll even want to submit one of you and your sweetie!
Suggested Post: Giving Birth to Reason
6. Passive-Aggressive Notes
Ever seen those pictures of sassy notes that circulate the Internet? Passive Aggressive Notes is a compilation of those! From requests to customers to drunken scribbles, this site has it all. Take an afternoon to scroll through—you’ll never want to click away!
Suggested Post: Possibly the best Tooth Fair letters of all time
7. Cake Wrecks
This blog is a similar format to Passive Aggressive Notes, except it features cake decorations gone wrong! A husband and wife pair runs the site, and even their banter on the site is funny. Every Sunday, a guest blogger, Lindsey Allen, posts a Sunday Sweets article. I’m telling you, TLC’s beloved Cake Boss would be horrified with these cakes.
Suggested Post: The Creepiness Continues
If you want to avoid these decorating mistakes (or maybe take a chance at ending up on Cake Wrecks yourself!), you should invest in a cake decorating book. I think that A Complete Photo Guide to Cake Decorating is one of the most helpful ones out there, especially if you’re a beginner. I love that it includes pictures to instruct you while creating because it guides the process in a very clear way. You can buy it on Amazon here!
Ok, before you read anything else on this site, check out the “A Little About Me” page and read this girl’s love story. Too cute, right? Now that you’ve done that, you are free to enjoy thoroughly the sass that is all over her blog. This girl next door primarily writes about her family, but not in the typical gooey, emotional way. While it is clear that she loves her family a lot, her spin on the usual family blogging is much more grounded and real.
Suggested Post: Love and Marriage
9. Late Enough
This next blog has a great mixture of funny and serious posts. When writing about a serious topic, blogger Alex still manages to lighten up the subject with a bit of humor. My favorite categories on the site are: Cultural Norms (that are abnormal), Is It Just Me?, and Social Life. Check out this blog if you like to read content that makes you laugh and think at the same time!
Brittany Gibbons is a positive body model, author, comedian, TED speaker, and much more! Her blog is full of amazing feminist content that is both light-hearted and heartfelt. These articles are the kind that will make you laugh in the moment and smile for the rest of the day.
Suggested Post: The Girl’s Girl
If you enjoy reading feminist content, I highly recommend Bad Feminist by Roxanne Gay. Many of these essays originated as blog posts, so they read very similarly to an online article. This makes the book relatable and accessible. You can buy Bad Feminist here!
Hopefully, you’ve been lol-ing, rofl-ing, and lmao-ing while browsing through these blogs. Be sure to follow these bloggers on their social media accounts so you don’t miss any of their hilarious new content! If you know of any or run your humor blog, we’d love to hear about it in the comments!
We at Miss Millennia hope your day is full of laughter.
