Daily Quotes To Make You Think

True Quotes

This is not the first blog of this kind that we’ve reviewed here; if you recall, a while back we stopped in at Dexter the Quote Guy’s Quotes…In Our Own Words Blog. True Quotes is a blog that shares a lot of similarity with Dexter’s blog, with a somewhat broader topical range and author Ann’s own personal touch.

True Quotes – Why You Should Go

True Quotes has a refreshingly simple format. Ann simply gives us a quote for the day, one to each post, and then takes just a couple of paragraphs to offer commentary on it. Whereas Dexter’s blog is based primarily on quotes focusing on positivity, Ann’s blog is a bit more liberal, including quotes on all manner of subjects. Says Ann, these are quotes taken

“…from a variety of sources including authors of classic literature and poetry, Holy Scripture, writings of the saints, and possibly even bumper stickers!”

—anything she finds that inspires her and she thinks will inspire you to thought and contemplation. Topics can run the gamut from inspirational and positive, to commentary on human nature and character. It’s all to get your thought processes moving and to make the written word meaningful to you in a personal way, the way that it is to her (to that end, be sure to see Ann’s Meaningful Project).

Summing Up True Quotes

Visiting True Quotes will only take a few moments out of your day, but those few moments will be enough to inspire you to thought. It will be a few moments very well spent at this interesting and inspirational blog.

Courageous Ideas For Now And The Future

Intrepid IdeasWhere to Find Intrepid Ideas:
Blog URL: http://curageousideas.blogspot.com/
Category: Personal Development

Intrepid Ideas

Intrepid Ideas is a blog that promises to take you where your thoughts dare not let you go. It breathes life to the secret thoughts you wish would live with an energy and courage that few have. This blog is anonymously authored so that the focus can be on the thoughts, and less on the person thinking them; because the author truly feels that the blog and the process is not about him, but you, or at the very least, “us.”

Intrepid Ideas – Why You Should Go

Intrepid Ideas is a blog with a mission. That mission is, in part, to “…spread some fresh courageous ideas through this blog as well as create a somewhat cryptic archive of my travels and thoughts. Through music, media, and prose, I hope to stimulate thought – exercise my creative side – and solicit feedback from the human race. Most importantly, I hope to realize some sort of growth from this experience.” To this end it has been a great success. The blog offers a diversity of posts from the philosophical to the political, all offered as insightful rather than inciteful. That is to say, the blog is not an effort to sway politically, but rather to induce thoughtful consideration of all subjects broached.

Summing Up Intrepid Ideas

Intrepid Ideas is a blog about thought and ultimately action, as stimulating thought really has no point without the latter. It is a blog charged with energy, sure to get you more fired up about the impact of your own mindset and the courage to give life to thoughts otherwise left unsaid.

It’s Like Exercise For The Cynical

Yoga for CynicsWhere to Find Yoga For Cynics:
Blog URL: http://yogaforcynics.blogspot.com/
Category: Personal Blog, Philosophy

Yoga For Cynics

Categorizing Yoga For Cynics was one of the hardest parts of writing this review (and perhaps I’ve still gotten it wrong). Capturing the essence of what the blog is was a close second place. So what is Yoga For Cynics?

Dr Jay Winston, the author, describes it as this: “possibly having something to do with yoga, cynicism, writing, politics, coffee, things to do while drinking coffee, art, music, the great outdoors, the great indoors, the not-so-great outdoors and indoors, drugs, and/or life in general, or maybe not.”

Yoga For Cynics – Why You Should Go

If you are still unsure the one thing to be sure of is that you are not alone; Yoga for Cynics is something of a “see it to believe it” experience where you have to visit and experience the blog for yourself before you can really figure out what it is.

At first take you might assume this to be a place of negativity and bad attitude; upon further reading you are more likely to see it as a place for thought and contemplation. That doesn’t mean contemplating cynicism, either; it’s more like a way of overcoming cynicism by stretching the mind to see all the possibilities.

Summing Up Yoga For Cynicism

What you get out of Dr. Jay’s blog will rely a lot on what you put into it; if you visit with only seconds to spare you may only scratch the surface of his random, deep thought process. If you go ready for a challenge you will exercise your brain even more, and delve deeper into the heart of the issue and to what it means to you. Yoga requires a bit more of your time and commitment, so choose wisely when you visit, and know that you’ll get something out of it for whatever you are able to put in.

Creating Better Zenhabits

Zen HabitsWhere to Find Zen Habits:
Blog URL: http://zenhabits.net/
Category: Personal Development, Simplicity

Zen Habits

“My name is Leo Babauta, I’m married with six kids, I live on Guam, I’m a writer and a runner and a vegetarian and I love writing Zen Habits.”

That about sums up the life of Zen Habits writer Leo, and gives a bit of an insight into what his blog is about. As for the rest, the blog is a steady stream of posts to help simplify your life in the Zen fashion, an exercise in simple productivity, and a behind-the-scenes look at the real life of a productivity blogger. And it’s all good things.

Zen Habits – Why You Should Go

Zen Habits is a collection of thoughts, issues, current events, and personal analyses all presented with the admirable goal of helping writer Leo and his readers accomplish the very enviable task of living more productively and contentedly. The blog is more than a reiteration of the habits of the truly Zen, it is a way to compare modern life and marry it to the tenets of the philosophy for personal betterment and fulfillment. Instead of just telling you how the Zen should live, Leo applies the concepts to all manner of things, from personal observations to issues in the news.

Summing Up Zen Habits

On the About page Zen Habits posts a simple quote from Aristotle that reads,

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.”

This serves as the basis behind the blog, and as a simple guide for living life well. Zen Habits is an illustration in how you can achieve this end in diverse and ever simplified ways. It’s a philosophy worth exploring, that you might just find impacts significantly in your life and efforts at finding an even balance.

NeurophilosophyWhere to Find Neurophilosophy:
Blog URL: http://scienceblogs.com/neurophilosophy/
Category: Science, Philosophy

Neurophilosophy

Neurophilosophy is a blog maintained by a UCL graduate student studying for a Master’s degree in Neuroscience. This blog is a place for this student to explore the many interesting topics related to that pursuit, and also to theorize and discuss some of the connections between the human minds and experiences. It’s an interesting mix of science and thought that leads you to wonder just a little more about yourself and those you share the planet with.

Neurophilosophy- Why You Should Go

Our human mind is what makes us what we are, and also what makes us so diverse and complex. An interest in our own inner workings is natural, but few of us have the kind of understanding of our brain that a person dedicating life and study to it would. So a blog like Neurophilosophy presents a unique opportunity to explore the many facets of the human condition with the guidance of a very well educated tour guide. From cannibalism to athleticism, “molecules, minds and everything in between,” Neurophilosophy offers us a look at the human brain as most of us have never seen (or considered) it before.

Summing Up Neurophilosophy

Neurophilosophy is a place of interest, education, contemplation, and curiosity. It’s hard to imagine what you might learn here, but it’s safe to assume that posts here might lead you to looking at the human factor in a new way.

Gretchen Rubin The Happiness ProjectWhere to Find The Happiness Project:
Blog URL: http://www.happiness-project.com/
Category: Personal Development, Self Improvement

The Happiness Project

Ever feel like there is just too much information out there telling you how to live well and prosper? Feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of information and experts all trying to show you how to finally live well and achieve life happiness? Maybe Gretchen Rubin can help. The Happiness Project is a blog where Gretchen shares insight and thoughts gleaned from her year spent studying the best and the worst of happiness and self-improvement theory. She hopes to learn from that experience to offer up the most useful of it, and some valuable insight into the less than stellar.

The Happiness Project – Why You Should Go

Unless you are ready to give up on happiness, and we certainly hope you are not, you may need some help finding the resources that truly work to help you achieve it. Gretchen Rubin, Yale-educated lawyer-turned-accomplished author, spent a year of her life “test-driving every principle, tip, theory, and scientific study I could find, whether from Aristotle or St. Therese or Martin Seligman or Oprah.” Her latest work is a compilation of her experiences in the form of a book, also named The Happiness Project which is due out from Harper Collins in 2009. In it she will “gather these rules for living and report on what works and what doesn‚Äôt.”‚ĶHas the sound of a true guide for living, doesn’t it?
Just to add credit to her name and efforts, know that Gretchen Rubin has been recognized and interviewed by the professional media, including Matt Lauer from The Today Show and Brian Lamb from Booknotes; she’s also been profiled in The New Yorker’s ‘Talk of the Town’, among many others.

Summing Up The Happiness Project

In many ways you can think of Gretchen Rubin’s blog as a sort of sneak-peak at her upcoming book. The blog is, as she describes, a memoir of the year she spent studying happiness in its many forms and reincarnations. In addition Gretchen has offered many resources, including a Happiness Library, Wednesday Tip Day, and her 12 Commandments for Living (simple, yet inspiring). The blog is chock full with material, all of it focusing on the one most important thing in life‚Ķthe personal happiness of every individual! Think what a better place the world would be if we were all happy and got along‚Ķ

Revellian Dot Com

Revellian | Blogging EthicsWhere to Find Revellian Dot Com
Blog URL: http://revellian.com/
Category: Philosophy, Personal Development, Blogging

Revellian Dot Com

According to the blog’s title Revellian delivers
Psycho-linguistical Dialectology: From The Edge“. Not quite sure what that means? That’s okay; you’ll get the feel for it.

Revellian Dot Com is the work of Bobby Revell, a writer, blogger, spiritual explorer, guitarist, and practitioner of the art of luthiery (Got you again? Luthiery is the art of building guitars!). So what does Revell blog about? A bit of all of these things.

Primarily, Bobby Revell‘s focus is to open the minds of others. He presents much about different philosophies of the world and draws from his many life practices and experiences to enlighten others. On his ‘About’ page Bobby describes his blog as a place where he posts “Lots of non-fiction articles about Zen, philosophy, the mysteries of human thought… [and] a weekly short story“. Sound intriguing? It is.

Bobby holds a strong belief in the power of blogs as an international platform capable of breaking down barriers of racism and ignorance. His inspiring definition of what blogging means to him makes you want to go write or start a blog of your own now; Bobby sees blogs as “a way to reach out to people all over the world enabling us all to share our individual expressiveness.

As an experienced blogger, Bobby also includes tips and information to help other bloggers, including beginners.

Revellian Dot Com – Why You Should Go

Revellian Dot Com is worth the trip for a number of reasons, but probably the best reason to go is the inspirational and mind-opening experience that is Revell’s blog. Bobby puts a lot of effort into posting information that gets people thinking and sharing in a spirit of education.

Although Bobby does not expect every blog visitor to agree with him, he does invite commentary and polite discussion. Given the somewhat debatable nature of some of the concepts he has introduced, Revell does an excellent job of opening the lines of discussion and communication without letting his blog descend into argument and insult. Revellian remains a place where all should feel comfortable offering their viewpoints without the fear of being pounced on. No doubt Bobby’s active presence in his comment area serves to keep visitors on their best behavior and maintain focus on enlightenment.

If this isn’t reason enough for you to go, consider this – Bobby Revell has built guitars for musical greats, including Eddie Van Halen!

Summing Up Revellian Dot Com

Revellian Dot Com is a place to expose yourself to philosophies old and new. This is a place where [religious] denomination has no meaning, a place to explore your spiritual side, pose questions and answers, learn about yourself, a bit about tech and blogging, be entertained by the fictional works of Bobby Revell, and become a member of an open and diverse community. Although I’d like to classify this blog under the category of “Blogging”, something makes me put it under “Philosophy”. Bobby Revell is fore sure a Philosopher.

Go and check out Revellian for yourself and digg it (if you like).
