BlogDay 2008: 5 Blogs You Didn’t Know Existed

Today is BlogDay2008. “What in the world is that about?” you ask.

“One long moment on August 31st, bloggers from all over the world will post recommendations of 5 new Blogs, preferably Blogs that are different from their own culture, point of view and attitude. On this day, blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, unknown Blogs, celebrating the discovery of new people and new bloggers.”

#1: Green Your Decor:
Many of you know that I write another blog called The Fun Times Guide to Living Green. As a result, I participate in lots of conversation on other “green” type blogs…and this one is one of my favorites.

Just like it sounds, it’s a GREAT guide to stylish, eco-friendly home decor. Check it out.

#2: Unreasonable Faith:

I really enjoy conversing with people who hold different views than my own. That said, this is a guy who went through the process of Bible college, pastoral training, and years of claiming to be an Evangelical Christian only to feel he had been wrong.

If you are open to different ideas and views than your own, it’s worth a look.

#3: Crema Coffee:
This is the blog/website of the hippest indy coffee house in Nashville, TN…not to mention with the best coffee! Recently, the owner told me, “I’m not sure a lot of people really ‘get’ what we do…”.

What she meant is that Americans are used to stale and/or burnt coffee. At Crema, they’re coffee snobs, without the snobbery. If you want the BEST tasting espresso drink or cup o joe you’ve ever had, you MUST stop by there sometime…whether you “get it” or not.

#4: Divine Nobodies:

This is the blog of a good friend of mine. He’s written a couple of half-way decent books (just kidding Jim). No, really, his books seriously ROCK!

If you feel like systems, institutions, doctrines, and works, works, works are leaving you wanting, Jim’s books and VERY open and active convo on his blog will be a breath of fresh air for you.

#5: The Fun Times Guide to Dogs:
Finally, The Fun Times Guide to Dogs is THE one stop shop for everyone who has beloved four-legged friends.

You’ll find everything here from product reviews, grooming tips, health care information, and anything else you’d ever want to know when it comes to dogs.

There ya have it, 5 blogs you maybe didn’t know existed. Check them out. When you post your own BlogDay2008 post, feel free to leave a link to it in the comments.

    One of my English professors from Liberty posted this essay on facebook
    if you have trouble viewing it i will copy/paste. I’d love to know your thoughts. I liked it b/c it encouraged same sex friendships. But I just had a guy friend use it against me to say we can’t be friends after ‘all we’ve been through.’
    So now I have a love/hate relationship with the essay.
    Looking forward to your assessment. :)
    Love ya!
