The point of Earth Day is not just to fix it once and forget it; it is to draw consciousness to the struggles of the planet and to induce people to change and action.

Blogs are excellent resources for ongoing learning and lifestyle change.  Many of the “green” blogs that have been reviewed here on Digg It are perfect examples of that, and ideal resources for the average earth citizen looking for realistic ways to achieve cleaner, more sustainable living.  Today, I’ve gone back through our archives to pull out some of the best environmentally friendly blogs of the past.

Blasts From The Green Past

We’ve got quite a few excellent green and environmentally friendly blogs in the Environment category, but here are a few of my personal favorites:

  • Tree Hugging Family was our first green review.  It is a blog run by a dynamic duo who is providing us daily with tips, tricks, and gadgets for better and cleaner living.
  • Green Living Tips is Australian Michael Bloch’s contribution to bettering the planet.  Michael is a very well-respected writer in this area, and his site is absolutely packed with information and resources–including carbon-clean web hosting options!
  • 365 Days of Trash started as Sustainable Dave’s journal of his experiment not to throw anything away for an entire year.  Dave succeeded quite admirably, and gained much fame in the process.  The original experiment has grown into so much more, not the least of which is his educational efforts and outreach.  His blog still goes strong to educate and support clean living initiatives.
  • The BusinessGreen blog is dedicated to helping us take greener, cleaner living throughout all aspects of our life, not only at home but in the workplace, too.  This is a blog that helps to round out the process and create an entire core of action toward real change and environmentally friendly practices.

We have many more excellent environmentally-friendly blog reviews within this category.  Be sure to check them all out and subscribe to a few of your favorites so that you have the daily resources you need for daily better living and maintaining a cleaner, greener, lifestyle.

I do like to go back every now and again and check up on past blogs just to see what they’re doing, and to see who has had the persistance and dedication to stick with their blog and who hasn’t.  Blogging is a tough act to commit to for the long term, and it isn’t for everyone, even for people who love to read and write and share.

How Well Did Your New Year’s Resolution Perform?

I feel an especial need to go back to those we’d reviewed as New Year’s Resolution Blogs and see how well they’ve maintained their resolve.  It’s seems Christine Kane, the blogger who brought us the concept of one word for improvement for the year, is going strong and learning a lot about what it really takes to persevere and succeed.  Christine is still mentoring, still working toward her personal goals, and still posting some hugely insightful and inspiring articles.  I know just visiting there this morning gave me a kick I very much needed!

Unfortunately, we can’t seem to say the same for the New Year’s Resolution blog.  It seems that there hasn’t been a post there since about January 15th.  That sounds about right given the record of success for the average person and their resolution.  This blog was to be a year-round site for support, largely a community effort.  That may have been its demise, relying heavily on reader activity.  It’s still a great blog premise and we’ve seen it revive before, so who knows, maybe this won’t be the last we’ll see of it.

I’m glad to see at least Christine Kane still going strong and living true to her word of the year.  Hers is an inspiring blog and good dose of success reality.  Be sure to go and take your daily dose of self development medicine!

Glenda Watson Hyatt Still Going Strong

Every time we start talking about exceptional people with special needs and exceptional skills, my mind goes back to Glenda Watson Hyatt of the Do It Myself Blog.  And so, I thought this was a good time to check up on Glenda and what she’s been doing.

Still Glenda

For those of you who are not familiar with Glenda, aka the “Left Thumb Blogger,” take some time to get to know this inspiring woman.  Glenda has cerebral palsy and has been categorized by doctors as being “non-verbal,” but her blog definitely proves otherwise!

I’m happy to report that Glenda is still every bit Glenda, still cracking jokes and working away, putting the rest of us to shame.  She is currently working on her presentation for SOBCon 2009 and taking up the battle of making the internet and social networking sites accessible to people with all types of disabilities, not just those with visual impairments as so often seems to be the case.

Glenda continues to be one of the most inspiring bloggers around.  Revisit this old Digg It favorite for a healthy dose of knowledge and inspiration, and a great many laughs, too!

Go here to check out Do It Myself Blog.

It’s always fun to digg back through your old posts and see what you might have forgotten.  Even though the blogs we review here on Digg It are unforgettable, there are those that we don’t get to pay as much attention to as we like, simply for the sheer number of blog reviews that we do.  So when we do get a chance to go back through our favorites, it’s like Christmas all over again.

Needless to say, in my excitement I was just not ready to let go of the idea of highlighting some of the past blogs.  Today I went and looked up some of our most favorite self improvement and empowerment blogs from days past, and have brought you three of them.  A couple of these aren’t really all that old, being from around New Year’s, but were great blogs worth a second look, and a chance to catch up and see if their resolves held (they did!).

Personal Improvement Blogging Blasts Worth A Second Look

  • The first that came to mind was Stuart Ginbey’s blog which deals primarily with Reprogramming the Mind for Success.  This is one of those blogs that helps you get out of your head and on to a life of successful action.
  • Our second pick happens to also be the first of our international blog review efforts from the land of the Scots.  At Positive Thinking – A Realistic Approach Kenny McBride continues to shine with his down-to-earth approach to positive thinking and success.
  • Our final choice for today’s better-living blog reviews is Christine Kane, the woman who brought us the concept of choosing a new word for a New Year, an alternative to resolutions based mindset.

These are my personal picks for the day, but I’d love to hear from all of you, too.  Do you have a favorite Digg It blog review?  Or do you think there’s a top blog that we’ve missed?  Maybe yours? Don’t be shy, comment below and tell us all about it!

Digging Blasts From The Past

When Sean Rasmussen first started Do You Digg It, we kicked the blog off with reviews of some really excellent blogs.  The problem is, as many of you bloggers know, when you start a new blog you don’t necessarily have a lot of readers.  But you usually DO have great content, often some of your most inspired posts.  Unfortunately, some of the best information goes unseen, all for a youthful lack of readership.

And so, to remedy that problem, today (and maybe for the net coulpe, who knows?) I decided to go back to some of the best reviews we’ve had of great blogs in the past–the blogs that you may have missed, if you joined us later on.

Blogging Blasts From The Past Worth Your Read!

I know you’ll need time to sort through these blogs, so I’ll start off with just a few of our past greats.

  • Ange Recchia was our very first reviewed blogger.  She is one of our favorite, and most popular, Personal Development bloggers.  Check out this old review of AngesBiz, and tell Ange the Digg It team says ‘Hi’ when you stop by!
  • Jamie LeSouef is another who joined our blog review ranks early on, offering us some serious and much appreciated guidance in the field of web design and internet technology.
  • Tree Hugging Family was our first entry into the world of green living and sustainability.  This blog is still going strong almost a year later (hard to think we’ve been reviewing blogs here for that long, but we have!).  THF is still putting up excellent content, helping the average family live cleaner and greener by the day.

We’ve got lots more great blog reviews from back in those early days, but as we know how great these blogs are we’re sure you’ll be busy enough gathering the goods from these three. We’ll come back and feature more Digg It blasts from the past on another day.
