As I understand it, blogging is a two way street. While sure, I have to write something that other people might want to read, it helps if I read what other people have to say. Frankly, reading other blogs is probably a lot more interesting than reading the newspaper every day. You can probably get the same amount of world news by reading the right blogs every day as well, you just get more biased viewpoints, which is probably not a bad thing. I mean, the newspapers and media agencies all have their own slant, especially here in Salt Lake City!
There have been a few blogs that I have been following for a while but I wanted to figure out how I could expand who I was reading and then maybe expand who found me. It really is a strange fascination that many of us have in wanting other people to read what we write. I mean, sometimes I wonder if I really have something to say that anyone cares about. It isn’t like anyone listens to me at work, I have been here for four years and sometimes I wonder who notices!
The three blogs that I have been reading regularly are: Photofocus by Scott Bourne, MonsteRawr by Stephanie Van Sandt, and Youngest Around by Jessica Watson. Photofocus is a great read for photographers with lots of interesting and useful information. MonsteRawr is just a firend of mine who I met through ControlBooth.com, and Youngest Around is Jessica’s blog documenting her solo circumnavigation sailing adventure. Also I have recently started to read Jim on Light as we have started to have some interactions on Twitter.
