The Positivity Blog

Henrik Edberg (who I believe bears the honor of first Swedish Blog reviewed at Digg It!) loves the subject of positivity and personal success. As he says, he “devours” everything he can read, watch, or hear on the subject. Then he brings it to his blog.

The Positivity Blog – Why You Should Go

Henrik describes his own life as a work in progress, one in which he is continually applying the best of success and positivity practices and principles. Recognizing that mankind is more alike than we are different, he has had the foresight to see that his approaches and applications, and his positive spirit in general, can be of good use to others, too, and so he shares his advice, tips, research, learning, and personal stories at The Positivity Blog. Some of the topics explored include:

- Creating new and better habits
- Self discipline
- Personal consciousness and responsibility
- Life and time management and resulting stress reduction
- Productivity, progress, and success

…and many more. Henrik offers very practical, sensible, workable solutions for you to choose from to create your own improved life of positivity and success.

Summing Up The Positivity Blog

Henrik Edberg has developed a blog with excellent information and resources, but more importantly he has infused it with his spirit of abundance and positivity. His outlook and attitude is contagious, and it’s something you definitely will want to catch.

Honoring Our Protectors

Where to Find Good Soldiers:
Blog URL: http://goodsoldiers.blogspot.com/
Category: Personal Interests

Good Soldiers

Memorial Day, a day to honor the veterans and fallen soldiers of all wars, was recently celebrated in the U.S. (Monday, May 25). Australia also recently celebrated a similar holiday, Anzac Day in honor of their veterans (Sean Rasmussen honored the day with a compelling story of a chance lunch with a noble vet while out shopping with his wife—or more accurately waiting for her to shop—be sure to stop in and read the about the experience, regardless of what country you are from). All around the world, countries honor those who have fought for their beliefs, freedoms, and cultures; and so it is fitting that there be blogs that do the same each and every day.

Good Soldiers – Why You Should Go

Good Soldiers is one of those blogs. Writer Derrick gives of his time to pay tribute to the armed forces that protect American rights and freedoms, and those who very sadly lose their lives in the process. The blog maintains an ongoing list of fallen heroes in recent conflicts and also offers news, stories, and commentary in related topics. It’s a sobering view of what is really happening and a place of reverence for some very selfless men and women.

Summing Up Good Soldiers

You do not need to be a supporter of any war or conflict to respect and honor the people who give of themselves in the line of duty for their, and your, country. Politics aside, there is always reason to honor those who fight for our freedoms and cultures, as this blog so clearly shows.

Go here to honor your veterans at Good Soldiers.

Life In The Cube

Where to Find Life in a Cubicle:
Blog URL: http://www.examiner.com/x-3040-Minneapolis-Life-in-the-Cubicle-Examiner
Category: Humor, Professions

Life In A Cubicle

Disengaged, disgruntled, disinterested…those are a lot of “dis’s” that could be used to describe Dudley B. Dawson‘s attitude toward life in a cubicle. But they all make for good reading as he builds upon them in his humor blog, Life in a Cubicle.

Life In A Cubicle – Why You Should Go

I found Life In A Cubicle listed under “Observational Humor” on BlogCatalog. It seemed an entertaining category, so I bit, and low and behold, there was Dudley Dawson‘s blog featured right at the top. So I bit again, and I was not disappointed in the least.

Dudley’s blog is, as you’ve probably guessed, a tongue-in-cheek look at life through the eyes of a cubicle-dweller. It’s a funny, snarky blog poised to help others in similar situations through their days, offering laughs and commiseration, and more than a few tips for more efficient slacking. (Don’t worry, you can even read it at work if you follow Dudley’s tips for surfing in your cube incognito.)

“Dudley B. Dawson’s Life in the Cubicle observes life from the confines of a 4×6 cubicle in the most depressing location known to man — corporate headquarters of a fortune 500 company. Topics including “Seven Habits of Highly Effective Slackers” and “Top 8 ways to sneak out of work early” will keep you laughing through your monotonous work day.”

Summing Up Life In A Cubicle

Funny. That just about says it all. This is a somewhat darkly amusing blog (somewhat dark—completely amusing) that will let you know first that you are not alone, and second that a little humor can go a long way to get you through your day and back into the glorious presence of real, bona-fide natural light.

Go here to check out Life in a Cubicle.

Where to Find Yielding Wealth:
Blog URL: http://www.bizzia.com/yieldingwealth/
Category: Personal Finance, Money

Yielding Wealth

Yielding Wealth is a personal finance blog with the intention of helping you build a stronger portfolio of personal financial success.

Yielding Wealth – Why You Should Go

Miranda Marquit has plenty of experience to back her blog. For this B5 Media Bizia blog, she writes about topics of personal finance and investing; she also writes on at least two other blogs related to personal finance and loans and mortgages.

Yielding Wealth is a blog that covers a little bit of everything related to personal finance. Miranda offers book reviews and recommendations, news and commentary on legislation (largely U.S. based in this category as that is her home base) that affects consumers and their finances, and tips and strategies for maximizing your personal wealth. Through it all, Miranda writes knowledgeably and understandably (which is important, as these topics do have the potential to grow confusing), and invites readers in to share more and learn more through discussion.

Summing Up Yielding Wealth

The best way I can think of to describe Miranda Marquit’s Yielding Wealth blog is as a fitness blog for finance. It’s like the food and exercise you need to optimize your financial health and well being. Optimal financial health—now who doesn’t want that?

Go here to check out Yielding Wealth.

Feeding The Suppressed Mind

Where to Find Suppressedminds.com:
Blog URL: http://suppressedminds.com/
Category: Personal Interests

Suppressedminds.com

Don’t believe everything you read (or hear). It’s advice your mother probably gave you, and advice that has probably proven true many times over in your life. It’s the same message you might take away from this blog, Suppressedminds.com.

Suppressedminds.com – Why You Should Go

Suppressedminds.com is a beautifully designed blog that is bringing to light the alternative media stories relating to many major topics of note, including Banking and the Federal Reserve, Health, Headlines, and more. It is an effort to bring additional details to light so that readers can think and make their own judgments. Some might call it conspiracy theory revealed and some might call it the “New World Order”; in the end, the decision is yours, but this site intends that you at least have access to additional information to consider.

Summing Up Suppressedminds.com

Suppressedminds.com broaches some very interesting and important topics and delivers more of the less publicized and less popular news of the day. As Mother said you should not simply believe everything you read, but with this site you at least have more points and angles to consider before you make your own informed decision.

Go here to check out Suppressedminds.com.

Where to Find A Postcard A Day:

A Postcard A Day

Blogger Sheila has inherited a few things from her father—both the nomadic spirit and a love of postcards. Through her blog she is continuing to revere that spirit and the hobby, and sharing her collection and thoughts along the way.

A Postcard A Day – Why You Should Go

“I’m one of those people who have led a nomadic existence, and so did my parents. My father started collecting postcards as a way to continue this life at least in spirit. I’m continuing the collection and posting at least one, chosen at random, each day.”

It seems the nomadic spirit was born into Sheila‘s blood, as her father’s before her. So his example of fulfilling that love was easily passed on to her. After many years by her father’s side enjoying the postcards and tales from places afar, Sheila began her own collection, which continues on today and has taken on a new life on her blog. Each day, Sheila chooses a new unique postcard from the collection and offers up a little bit of history or story to go along with it, often from the original sender. It’s a unique way to celebrate the diversity of the world in a fun and interesting way.

Summing Up A Postcard A Day

A Postcard A Day is loosely akin to the many picture a day photoblogs that are out there, which are wonderful for their local takes on life around the planet, but with the unique twist of the postcard as subject. The tales from the cards add a very personal and diverse element, much like exploring the world throughout different places and times and walking in the shoes of numerous diverse personalities.

The Best Of New York, By Foot

Where to Find Walking Off The Big Apple:
Blog URL: http://www.walkingoffthebigapple.com/
Category: Travel, Lifestyles

Walking Off The Big Apple

Teri Tynes knows New York city. Her perspective is one that is more up close and personal than many, however, as she thoroughly enjoys walking her way through it. She has managed quite successfully to marry that enjoyment into a highly informative blog for lovers of New York, tourists, and residents alike.

Walking Off The Big Apple – Why You Should Go

“Walking Off the Big Apple is a strolling guide through New York City with themed self-guided walks and commentary on art, society, and culture.”

In a few words, it is taking the city by foot and blogging about it. Along the way Teri offers insight, reviews, and commentary, and also essential resources for retracing her steps and recreating the experience. This makes it a highly useful resource for people who are either visiting or living in and near New York and looking for ways to maximize the experience.

In addition, because Teri is covering a large range of cultural and city events, her blog has become a defacto resource for arts, entertainment, and events of note. It’s a first-stop for finding out where the real scenes are, an excellent planning tool. The blog also serves as a wonderful photoblog for those who just want to live a little vicariously and see the sites from afar.

Summing Up Walking Off The Big Apple

Teri Tynes has developed a unique, insightful, and resourceful blog. This is a blog that will be of tremendous use to those who want to get up close and personal with city, and enjoy it at the more comfortable strolling pace rather than the hustle and bustle that the city is so known for.

Go here to check out Walking Off The Big Apple.

Keeping The Castle

Where to Find Keeping The Castle:
Blog URL: http://www.blisstree.com/keepingthecastle/
Category: Personal Interests, Home, Cooking

Keeping The Castle

They say a man’s home is his castle, but the same is true of a woman. Home is the castle, and keeping it comfortably is an art—an art that Karen Weideman excels at, as evidenced in her blog.

Keeping the Castle – Why You Should Go

Keeping the Castle has a little bit of everything for the home. Karen herself is a stay-at-home-parent who also works from home, so has lots of insights into those avenues. Along with that are many ideas and posts about child rearing, cooking, general kid’s activities, party planning, family time and issues, and more. There are posts to help you plan for the day to day and special events, and posts to help you get more enjoyment out of your home and living area. Karen also writes the B5 media’s Thrifty Mommy blog, so some cross over from there is present as well (both Thrifty Mommy and Keeping the Castle are part of the B5 network via their new Blisstree site).

Summing Up Keeping The Castle

Keeping the Castle is a one-stop shop for homemakers of all kinds. While Karen is a stay at home mother, her tips, tricks, and resources are useful and inviting to all and, mother or father, we could all use a few more tips and tricks up our homemaking sleeves.

Go here to check out Keeping the Castle.
