I’m diving back into regular blogging, and what better day to do so than on Blog Day 2007? I really dig the notion of a day dedicated to exploring blogs of people who are quite different from ourselves, so I’ll be sharing 5 blogs I enjoy that are outside my usual reading range.
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.
iCiNG is the fashion blog of Gala Darling, a globe trotter based in Australia and originally from New Zealand. I’m not generally a fashion enthusiast, but Gala’s excitement is contagious. (Plus I have a weakness for pink-haired beauties.) She has become the most unlikely addition to my daily reads, so where better to start this list?
Riverbend is a an Iraqi woman who blogs about the politics and personal events taking place in occupied Iraq. I began reading her blog a couple years ago and have kept up with her accounts of life within Baghdad with great interest. Her updates have become infrequent and she may have left the country, but she has offered a rare look into a devastated place.
Rural Pinoy Biker
I enjoy biking and foreign lands, but I didn’t expect to be drawn into “a Pinoy biker’s Philipine rural adventures”. The author’s joy in biking is immediately apparent and has brought up my own fond memories of biking.
Fish Feet is a sharp and accessible science blog that focuses on “evolution, biodiversity, palaeontology, conservation and current controversies”. Sarda Sahney’s insights and commentary are always a highlight of my daily science reading.
Thanks to I Quit for Lijit for the heads up on Blog Day.
