Five Other Blogs You Should Check Out
Babes in Thailand
Oh Dev. In training, I wasn’t sure what to think about the lone Indian (of the Asian variety, not the Native kind) in our group. Joining him and Jeff for lunch one day though and I knew this crazy brownie was going to be fun. Dev is ridiculously well-read and has a devilish way with words. Though a bit graphic, rare is the time that I’m not laughing out loud at a post from Babes in Thailand.
The Jackie Blog
Homegirl is writing a post a day for the past year. Wowza. If that’s not enough to catch your interest, she’s pretty fucking hilarious too. At least in the ‘my mind wanders down these crazy paths and I’m recording it for your entertainment’ kind of way. Just my type. She inspires me to keep writing as often as possible because you’re never quite sure what genius is going to come flying off of your fingers. I hope she continues again next year. Bonus points, she’s living and posting in Pittsburgh, PA, my hometown. Represent girl. Check Jackie out.
This is what my blog would look like if I were about twenty years older and a much better photographer. And probably a much nicer person too. Fellow Volunteer and one of my best buds here, Tammy is the optimist I wish I could be. Her blog is worth checking out for the mere photographic journey you’ll go on. Trust me on this one.
No, this isn’t exactly ohhhmmm stuff, but I think many would benefit from reading what this guy has to say. Zen habits is all about slowing down and enjoying your life, making it the best that it can be. And he practices what he preaches. My favorite thing I’ve taken from this blog is about productivity. Focusing on just one thing at a time instead of multi-tasking and the experience that you have with that one thing will be finished faster and more quality than if you were watching a movie, eating, and trying to work at the same time (like I usually do). I try to cut myself down to just two things at once now, baby steps, just like zen habits says.
Sa-wat-dii From Thailand
I’ve posted some of my friend and fellow Volunteer, Jeff Jackson’s, writing before. Sometimes I wonder if a bit of me was born ten years before I was and in male form. We’re that similar. I develop a lot of blog ideas from conversations I have with Jeff (more like when I rant and he says something funny and I think to myself, huh I should make this into a post) and he has plenty of good things posting himself. I’ve linked it before, here he is again.
These are a lot of Peace Corps blogs obviously, but what are you reading? I would love new suggestions of blogs about anything and everything. Seriously, I have the time. Send them my way.
