Recap Review, April 25 Edition

It was quite a mixed bag of work and reviews here at Digg It this week.  We checked in to see how some old blogs were doing, celebrated Earth Day, and found some new fun and exploration, too.

Week In Review, April 25, 2009

  • To start the week, we took advantage of the quarter-year point to check in on the New Year’s resolutions blogs from the beginning of the year.  While Christine Kane is still bombing along, others fared not as well.
  • We got a little personal with the next post, sharing our personal resolve success and checking in on Sean Rasmussen’s progress on his publicized New Year’s Goals while asking the question: “How Is Your Resolve?” (do stop by and share!).
  • Sean’s working vacation to Vanuatu was inspiration for the next post, which reviewed a network site for diving blogs, sharing the love and beauty of the deep blue sea.
  • The next day brought us to Earth Day and another kind of dedicated blog network, the Earth Day Network of blogs.  This is a place where Earth Day is celebrated all year long, striving to make sustainable living and preservation a part of every life.
  • To follow up on that great score, we dugg back into the Digg archives and renewed attention to some of our all-time favorite “green” blog reviews.
  • To complement the last two, the week rounded out with a celebration of life on Earth through pictures at A Photo A Day from Planet Earth.  This is a true global community effort giving you the opportunity to explore more of the world through contributor lenses.

That’s a busy week for sure.  Hope you didn’t miss any of the activity from the week before, either, but if you did, here’s a link to last week’s Recap Review.  Keep the blogs submissions and suggestions rolling, and we’ll do the same with great blog reviews!

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.

Earth Day Network

Today is Earth Day; our day to pay particular attention to our planet and to plan and strategize ways to improve and protect it. This is a day that has been recognized for well over thirty years now, and one that we all know needs to extend beyond the reaches of just this annual date. That is just what the Earth Day Network of blogs has been designed to do.

Earth Day Network – Why You Should Go

The Earth Day Network was founded by the organizers of the first Earth Day in 1970. It is designed to be a place to continually prepare for the annual event, and also to blog and discuss events and topics of importance related to preserving the Earth and her natural resources. The site describes its mission in this way:

“Earth Day Network is a driving force steering environmental awareness around the world. Through Earth Day Network, activists connect, interact, and have an impact on their communities, and create positive change in local, national, and global policies. EDN’s international network reaches over 17,000 organizations in 174 countries, while the domestic program engages 5,000 groups and over 25,000 educators coordinating millions of community development and environmental protection activities throughout the year. Earth Day is the only event celebrated simultaneously around the globe by people of all backgrounds, faiths and nationalities. More than a half billion people participate in our campaigns every year.

Our mission is to grow and diversify the environmental movement worldwide, and to mobilize it as the most effective vehicle for promoting a healthy, sustainable planet.”

Summing Up Earth Day Network

The Earth Day Network is home to a great variety of blogs all with a focus on bettering life on this planet at home and abroad. Each blogger has his or her own perspective and agenda, so you can be sure that your personal tastes will be represented here. Get involved or just come to learn how to live more environmentally friendly, starting small with you and yours in the comfort of your own home.

Celebrate Earth Day today and….
