Five Recommendations for Blog Day 2007

Blog Day 2007

What is Blog Day?

BlogDay was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest. On that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors.

With the goal in mind, on this day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs. This way, all blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, previously unknown blogs.

These have to be blogs I discover outside my normal, everyday reading list, according to the way I read the description at BlogDay. I can’t simply recommend the blogs I’ve had in my list of recommended blogs since back in the day. Here are my new and wonderful finds.

Notes from the Trenches: I discovered this blog while following a thread about the Edwards family taking their children with them on the campaign trail. What I found was an articulate and funny mommy blog with engaging writing. Mommy blogs are definitely not my usual territory, but the writing is so good here it drew me in.

eLearning Queen: This is a blog about online and distributed training and education, from instructional design to e-learning and mobile solutions. A Susan Smith Nash blog, this is a treasure trove of educational ideas, videos, articles, and provocations.

Techsploitation: This tech, science, sex, and pop culture blog is the work of Annalee Newitz. If the topics covered sound like quite a combination, you know that you’re in for a geek thrill ride.

Curb Cut: An accessibility blog I never heard of before? Yes. And it’s a good one, written by Christopher Phillips. Topics include accessibility, disability, formats, and learning.

My Mom’s Blog: Stories, videos and lots of fancy stuff by 83 year old blogger Millie Garfield. Expand your horizons, children.
