Last week, I published a list of 10 blogs worth reading.
This week, I continue the weekly roundup with 7 blog articles published this week that forced me to question or smile about some element in society or culture:
- Before anyone else, a special shout out to Catherine Lawson, a writer of bold advice for business success, who recognizes the importance of saying thank you. In this case, she thanked 131 bloggers with links to their blogs, including yours truly.
- In Your Grandparents Know More Than the Internet, Rick DeCost hits the heart by saying elders in society should be sought for advice and knowledge as much as, if not more than, using an internet search engine.
- “Who among us hasn’t misquoted Kerry?” asks Northeastern University journalism professor Dan Kennedy, in reference to the junior senator from Massachusetts. It’s an interesting commentary on local and national journalists interspersed with political speech extracts.
- At the Center for Citizen Media, Dan Gillmor delves into the history of citizen journalism and questions whether its usage is still appropriate.
- Entrepreneur Jon Morrow writes compelling copy on how to stop being invisible by looking to the class clown and providing value to your readership, which is just as worthy for a blogger as any other journalist.
- Out in Omaha, Nebraska, which seems a long way from where I sit, Andy at Blog in Your Face wonders if former vice president and Nobel winner Al Gore is on the money by proposing the United States can distance its energy portfolio from fossil fuels in 10 years.
- If you drilled a hole through my floor and kept going until you reached China, then headed south to Australia, you’d find Robin Birch and her blog called Let’s Live Forever! I just discovered her and in her latest post (as I type this), she writes about social change and global issues, asking, “Is the world getting better or worse?“
