Crime and Crooks Blog wants to recruit you as part of a large information army of upstanding citizens standing up against crime. The logic behind the blog is simple‚Äîif you know how criminals and crooks work, you’ll know how to preempt their attempts and protect yourself and your property.

To the end of reader education our resident analyst offers posts which discuss different types of crime and the motivations and modes behind them. Top news and crime stories of the day are also talked about and analyzed from the perspective of an expert who knows. Collectively, these posts provide interesting insight and commentary, and, as promised, education that illuminates the many ways we can all take small steps to keep ourselves safe from those who would perpetrate against us.

Do It Myself Blog

If you are into feeling sorry for yourself or thinking that life is handing you just too hard a hand, you won’t want to visit Glenda Watson Hyatt’s Do It Myself Blog. But if you are into inspiring stories of perseverance and accomplishment, this is a blog you do not want to miss.

Due to a lack of oxygen at birth, Glenda was born with cerebral palsy. Starting life this way certainly presented its challenges, but her parents were determined to wipe “can’t” from her vocabulary and give Glenda all the tools she needed for life success.

They succeeded admirably. Glenda Watson Hyatt succeeded admirably. Today, she is a noted author (of her own recently published book, I’ll Do It Myself), blogger, and podcaster, sharing her experiences to help others overcome whatever it is that holds them back‚Äîand she did it all with limited mobility, verbal communication, and typing only with her left thumb!

Do It Myself Blog – Why You Should Go

Motivation and inspiration are two of the primary goals of Glenda’s blog, where she “shares her experiences living with cerebral palsy to motivate and inspire others to think about how they perceive their own situation and their own world around them.” This succinct blog description very accurately describes what Glenda does here. Her own story is inspiration enough, but her continued work takes inspiration and motivation to a new level.

Equally important, though, and arguably even more so, Glenda also takes understanding to a new level. She proves herself and people like her to be people first. By sharing insight and inviting the world to see life through her eyes, Glenda shows that people living with challenges are still people—people with abilities and hopes and dreams, people to be understood, not pitied.

Summing Up Do It Myself Blog

A short review can’t really do justice to this inspiring woman and her work. This is really something you need to experience for yourself. Glenda’s blog is not about a disability, it is about opening up your mind to the larger world around you, and understanding for real how each person and situation fits into it. Lest I do a disservice to Glenda herself I encourage you to experience Do It Myself on your own, and find your own dose of motivation, inspiration, and understanding.

Find Out What’s Behind the Vines

Behind The Vines

Although we love what Brew Ha Ha is doing, we can’t all be beer lovers, can we? So here’s a review for the wine-at-hearts: Behind the Vines.

Farley Walker writes the Behind the Vines blog, and brings to this blog a love of wine along with a healthy dose of experience and knowledge in the subject. Farley works in a winery in California wine country, where she works and lives her “Wine-Colored dream,” and passes the time by learning to make vinegar and ricotta cheese (hey, what’s wine without cheese, right?).

Behind the Vines – Why You Should Go

In recent years many authors and much of the wine-producing community has striven to bring back the love of wine to the masses. But the mystery and attitude surrounding the enjoyment of fine wines has made many hesitant to jump in. Farley is one who is working to demystify wines, wine enjoyment, and the wine-making process by sharing her knowledge and love of it. Her aim is to invite anyone and everyone with an interest in wines in, and “get you that much closer to finding out which wines are right for you: based on dinner choices, the weather, or maybe the mood you‚Äôre in‚Ķ”

There is nothing snobby about the blog; it is a place where everyone should feel comfortable learning and contributing. Farley’s conversational tone and free-flow of insight make this blog just that kind of place.

Summing Up Behind the Vines

As Farley says, wine is not all about “statistics and facts and chemical balance.” There is a personal side to enjoying wine (fine, cheap or otherwise), and that is what Farley brings to us. Where a brew won’t do a bottle might, so learn what you might want in that bottle from Farley Walker; you’ll find her Behind the Vines.

The Specialness Of A Child Chosen

A Child ChosenWhere to Find A Child Chosen:
Blog URL: http://www.achildchosen.com/
Category: Parenting, Adoption

A Child Chosen

A Child Chosen started as the chronicles of Marcie Pickelsimer as she welcomed her second adopted child into her family. Marcie already maintained two other blogs of a more personal nature, but also wanted a blog that was wider in scope and more useful to parents everywhere. As the parent of children affected by Autism, and an adoptive parent, Marcie has a great wealth of information to offer on a diverse array of topics; these she combines for the insight and education of parents and interested readers on her blog, A Child Chosen.

A Child Chosen – Why You Should Go

At first glance Marcie Pickelsimer’s blog is appealing for the insight offered into the world of adoptive parenting and autism. Those whose lives these issues have impacted will certainly be in need of a reliable first-hand resource such as Marcie’s. Those who are not will welcome the opportunity to see inside the lives of families who are impacted by them. On these issues (and also on the related issue of sensory integration) Marcie tirelessly researches and writes and has built a large resource of information through her blog.

A closer look reveals a lot more that Marcie’s blog has to offer. In addition to the invaluable information resource that she is, Marcie also offers up news and commentary on issues important to parents and caregivers, and fun projects and past times that any family can share together.

Summing Up A Child Chosen

A Child Chosen is a special place because it is a place where the warmth and dedication of a great parent shines through. The uniqueness of Marcie Pickelsimer’s life is almost forgotten, but only because Marcie chooses to take the best possible attitude toward her life and its unique challenges. There is no pity here for Marcie, only possibility and appreciation of a fulfilling life. That attitude is what is most pervasive in her blog, and the best reason to join her.

Green Living Tips

Green Living Tips is another blog where the name says it all; but this blog, the work of Australian Michael Bloch, is more than your average green living blog site. It’s an environmentally-charged website with all the news, information, and green living resources you need, and one that does it all with personality and flair‚Äîand action!

Green Living Tips – Why You Should Go

Green Living Tips is a lot like Tree Hugging Family in that it gives you practical ways to live greener and healthier everyday. The blog is a compilation of information that Michael Bloch has learned through his years of learning to live greener for the sake of the environment and for himself (living earth-friendly in the remote reaches of Australia has been a dream of his for some time now). Michael shares what he’s learned through his blog, which is in part both a personal journal and reference website.

The blog itself is part of a larger site that also includes articles and links to more green living resources and information and initiatives, the best of which are featured in daily posts. There are categories and posts to cover every imaginable aspect of going green, including topics like business, cleaning, energy, family, food, gadgets, garden, health, pets, and many others.

Michael’s dedication to green living extends beyond his blog, though. He also incorporates environmentally friendly practices into business and education. He hosts and maintains a website dedicated to educating the public about the effects of carbon dioxide on the environment called Carbonify.com. He also runs a totally green web hosting company, ThinkHost, which is powered entirely by eco-friendly renewable wind and solar power.

Summing Up Green Living Tips

Green living tips is one of the top-ranked green living (and working) websites for a reason; it is one of the most comprehensive and user-friendly resources of its kind. Best of all, Michael blends an entertaining sense of humor and personality into his blog. His compassion, friendliness, and approachability has done much to build a community of readers and commenters, and a bigger community of earth-first thinkers and doers all looking to Michael to help them do their part and live more responsibly for the sake of the earth’s environment.

Of Cabbages And Kings

“Life’s funny. Embrace the nonsense.” Words to live by; words Jenn Thorson, author of Of Cabbages And Kings, does live by. And the philosophy seems to serve her well. Jenn is a writer with a deep appreciation of humor who’s decided to share her life, in a humorous sort of way, with the rest of us. Inspired by several of the great humor writers, Jenn set off to write what makes people laugh. We can’t speak for the rest of her writing, but her blog posts, at least, have achieved that goal.

Of Cabbages And Kings – Why You Should Go

Jenn Thorson describes herself, in a Seinfeld-ian kind of way, as “the type of person who gets cracked up by‚Ķ oh‚Ķ grocery shopping.” So finding enough funny things to support a blogging habit wasn’t hard for her. Her life is her inspiration, and her blog is “a way of sharing some of the everyday things that make me chuckle. That way I‚Äôm not just out there, wandering the streets laughing to myself. * Or, at least, if I am, I can say, ‘Look, you, I have a blog post to write.’”

What makes the blog so inviting‚Äîeven given the common-nature of her post topics‚Äîis the common-nature of her post topics. It’s not hard to relate to her posts, and reading her wit might just make it possible for you to have a few laughs at your own expense. And when you can start taking life less seriously, well, life becomes somehow less serious, in the best of ways.

Summing Up Of Cabbages And Kings

You’ll never know what you will be reading about when you visit Jenn Thorson’s blog, but you can at least count on getting a few good laughs from it. Go here to relate to the real human condition, and take comfort in the fact that you are not the only one out there walking around laughing at yourself.

Random Political Thoughts And News

There’s not much to tell about Monkey Suit, the author of the Random Political Thoughts And News blog, because we don’t have an ‘About’ page to go on. But we can at least talk about what the blog and its community is‚Äîwhich is pretty much as the blog’s name indicates.

Random Political Thoughts And News – Why You Should Go

Random is a good way to describe this blog‚Äîit’s a hit or miss mix-up of political news and some commentary. No political person or subject is safe, and any may be the next to appear atop the blog. From Presidential hopefuls to election predictions, to media and industry experts and policies‚Äîyou never know who will get Monkey Suit fired up.

While Monkey Suit does interject with his own insight and opinions, he also presents a lot of food for thought. Some of the news is nothing new, but talked about from angles you might not have considered or understood, and some of it is stuff you might have missed. But agree or disagree, there’s enough there to fuel your thought and motivate you into caring a little more about a country and an issue you may have disregarded as being something you could do little about anyway.

Naturally a political blog is a place open for discussion. Visitor comments have been kept civil and insightful‚Äîa nice feature for a political blog‚Äîand offer further insight and consideration. The benefit here is that you can read and learn and discuss with a community, and not just follow it because you agree with the author. Hopefully that’s an aspect that Monkey Suit can maintain as the blog continues to grow.

Summing Up Random Political Thoughts And News

Random Political Thoughts is a young blog; already, though, there are readers willing to speak their peace and add to the conversation. Go here to read the news you might have missed, the news you know but want to hear more about from a source other than main-stream media, or just for entertainment when you need to hear someone bust on a politician.

Accountability Corner

If it seems to you the world could be better if people would just start taking some responsibility for their own lives and actions, that a little personal accountability could go a long way, then you have something in common with Wolf K., originator of Accountability Corner. He’s constructed his blog as “a collection of thoughts, ideas and actions either demonstrating accountability or decrying the lack thereof.” And he’s invited us all to look inside and outside of ourselves, and see what a difference personal accountability can make.

Accountability Corner – Why You Should Go

Accountability comes and goes in many forms; some people are cognizant of it and the need for more of it and some are foreigners to the term, and to the implications of increased societal accountability. Wolf K. believes in the power of personal accountability, enough to have created a blog and a website dedicated to remediating society through networks and connections and personal responsibility.

Wolf’s well intentioned blog is a collection, as he says, of thoughts and ideas, topics and hobbies of interest to Wolf. It includes monthly spotlights of deserving blogs and bloggers; it also includes an Honor Wall where readers can add the names and faces of U.S. soldiers and soldiers from other countries who have given or are giving of themselves, protecting the right of us all to live to be accountable another day.

Summing Up Accountability Corner

Wolf’s rules and values for life and his blog are simple and effective. There is a “do unto others” atmosphere that more than anything gets you thinking about your own personal accountability, and about how life could be better if we were all to step up and take responsibility for ourselves; if more people could put their core values out there and expose themselves to the world as Wolf K. does, in a way that clearly resounds with a level of individual responsibility, society as a whole could find a new level of confidence, security, hope, and enthusiasm. His is still a young blog but a premise with promise, and we hope to see more good things to come as Accountability Corner continues to develop and grow.

Be Your Own Detective

Everyone knows that most of the information you want is available online, right? So why is it so hard to find certain people, family, friends, and information you need? Maybe it’s because the average person doesn’t know where to look. Barry Dunn does know, though. With more than 20 years’ experience in police work and investigations, and a resume that includes work as an online investigator/researcher and work as an international police advisor, Barry knows more than most about how to find the people, places, and information you need.

Be Your Own Detective – Why You Should Go

The name says it all. Go to Barry’s Be Your Own Detective Blog to find the resources and tools that give you access to people and information. Barry offers regular posts with pearls of wisdom, gained from experience, to help you locate long lost friends and family, classmates, and information about criminals and offenders living and working with or near you. With his background in law enforcement, Barry can also offer some advice about the right and wrong and responsible uses of his information and resources (although, understandably, he does have to draw a line and enter a disclaimer for his own protection).

In addition to informational posts Barry also has links to his Squidoo Lens, useful sites, and his own articles and a directory of free public search resources that he compiled himself. All that, and Barry still finds time for interesting stories from the trade and for a few blonde jokes, too.

Summing Up Be Your Own Detective

We know most of the information we want is out there, but finding it is another matter entirely. We have all seen myriad “resources” which promise to perform, but it’s tough to know what to trust and what not to, what to pay for and what paid services to trust. Be Your Own Detective helps to sort all of that out. With Barry’s help, now we little people have the right tools to reconnect and protect our own personal interests, thanks to an investigator with the generosity to share his time and knowledge.
