Create a Blog Catalog

Many bloggers maintain a list of links of blogs/websites we like plus we have a variety of social networking sites that we check and update. With cool features like www.pingpress.fm (which is a cool service that updates your status at all of your social networking sites), we are starting to see the overabundance of links that we saw in the 90s. You might be too young to remember the days when there were pages on a website just dedicated to links. Then there were web pages just dedicated to links, like poorly designed yellow pages. And they were cool when they began just like blog logs are cool today.

Back in the day, I always wished I knew more about why something was posted. Is it a reciprocal link? Is it another project by the same person? Is it something this person likes or is it totally tubular? Now that I have my own blogs, I thought I'd create a blog catalog that let's you know why I choose to follow these blogs.

Body Wealth: This is my other blog: Wellness for Body, Mind, & Wallet. I explore issues of nutrition, business building, ADHD, social capital, etc. This post was originally posted there so join today!

Stephen K. Hayes Densho: Stephen K. Hayes is my martial arts teacher and one of the wisest people I know. If you are not already subscribed to the Densho, what are you waiting for? Consider this your engraved invitation.

Daily Cross-Swords: Jenn is one of my students and is a fabulous instructor of martial arts and stage combat.

Boulder and the Beautiful: A witty blog by Boulder's very own fashionista: Aimee Heckel.

Life Force International: This is not a blog but a link to nutritional products I sell. This link will take you to an offer for a free bottle. This product has literally changed my life after decades of health challenges. Try a free bottle and see if it helps you. (If you don't like it, no hard feelings. It is not for everyone).

New blogs I've discovered:

Become A Blogging Maniac: The blog from a class I am taking. If blogging scares you, this is a great place to start.

Blueleaf Creative: Leah is awesome and she's one of my fellow Sam Walton Emerging Entrepreneur award winners. She has so many reources, you just have to check her out.

Ah, good--I feel so much better communicating the importance of the links I choose to list in my blogroll. I hope you'll take the time to check out these links as they are all stimulating.

Thanks 3 Cubes--You are correct. What an unfortunate oversight as Propits is one of my favorite activities but I forgot to add their blog to my reader. (A problem I have now rectified).

http://propits.blogspot.com/ is an excellent blog on the cutting edge of economics, micro-giving, and earning money because you are cool and people like you.
