Happy Blog Day! (Why today, if you squint, 3108 -- today's date -- looks like blog) . Here's the rules:
- Find 5 new Blogs that you find interesting
- Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending them as part of BlogDay 2007
- 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/BlogDay2007 and a link to the BlogDay web site at http://www.blogday.org
I decided to avoid anything church-related and stick to five blog I read earnestly, but only started reading recently. They all have to do with living a better, more productive life.
OpenOffice.org Help TNT is about the free and open source office productivity suite of course, while Linux by Examples is short format documentation (usually with images) about my favorite operating system.
Two include public transportation concerns. The TDM Professional is for transportation demand management professionals, but is great for lay transit foamers and sustainability wonks, especially in this area since Chris Hamilton, the Commuter Services Chief for suburban Arlington County, Virginia is a regular writer. Carfree USA Blog is a bit more dogmatic, but directs its zeal towards human and urban well-being. A good place for talking points (or is that too Washington a recommendation?)
Jan Chipchase's engaging thoughts about user interfaces -- recommended by a Day Job colleague -- rounds out the list at future perfect.
