Through the blog of a Facebook friend (thanks, Eddie) I discovered that it is BlogDay 2008 today. That was the first time I heard about it but it sounds like a good idea and a lot of fun. This is the fourth time.
The instructions for it are fairly simple:
BlogDay posting instructions:
- Find 5 new Blogs that you find interesting
- Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending them as part of BlogDay 2008
- Write a short description of the Blogs and place a link to the recommended Blogs
- Post the BlogDay Post (on August 31st) and
- Add the BlogDay tag using this link:
http://technorati.com/tag/BlogDay2008 and a link to the BlogDay web site at http://www.blogday.org
Since the day is not over yet, I will suggest my share of five blogs:
One of me recent discoveries is “Savage Mind” a group blog on anthropological topics. I have already found several interesting ideas there. I am looking forward to reading more and keeping myself up-to-date in the area of anthropology.
“Everyday Sociology” is an even more recent discovery (this weekend) that I plan to read regularily because the topics are really interesting and fascinating. Plus, there is a lot of relevance to my own resesarch.
Wayne Jacobsen, writes on “Life Stream Blog”. I have listened to his podcast “The God Journey” (together with Brad Cummings) on and off over the past few years and found them inspiring and challenging. Now I have started reading his blog. And one of his books – “He loves me!“. 😉
For some time I have been lurking on Dan J. Brennan’s blog. 😉 Dan is in the process of writing a book on cross-sex (non-romantic) friendships. He writes more blogs than I have time to read but I find his point of view interesting, even though some of his ideas leave me with mixed feelings. I think a lot will depend on the practical implementation of the idea. I wish I had the time to read some of the books he mentions. At least through his blog, I get a glimps of some of them.
And last but not least, one from down under, “Mark Conner’s Space”. I stumbled across this blog today and from all that I have read so far, I really like his balanced and pastoral take on things, such as the recent revelations on some Christian leaders.
P.S. Apologies to the blog owners that I notified you so late. Certainly too late for Australians to participate. 🙁
