Table for Five - Elizabeth

Along the trail of the 2000 Bloggers, I find Elizabeth writing at Table for Five.

She celebrated a birthday milestone and woke up feeling no different.

She made do for a whole weekend without cable TV or Internet access.

She wonders why she doesn't get invited to cocktail parties?

She writes frequently as a mommy blogger. Consider adding her site to your RSS Reader!

The Thinking Blog - ilker yoldas

Along the trail of the 2000 Bloggers, I find The Thinking Blog. Yes, you heard right. Thinking.

Sounds like this place is right up my alley!

How about sending an email to your future self? She writes:
I've seen this before, and maybe some of you have seen this as well, but I'm sure most people haven't. Even so, its time to bury your own personal time capsule! Ever wonder where will you be one year from today? Preserve your thoughts, resolutions, and memories on Future Me, then specify the date in the future when you want them emailed back to you.
Read her full posting here.

She also heard about First Life and writes:
Go Outside. Make some real life friends. Live your life. Second Life is a popular virtual world which recently crossed one million residents. To parody Second Life, Darren Barefoot created a one page satire site called Get a First Life which is a '3D analog world where server lag does not exist.'
So other than sending an email to yourself, or getting to live your first life, stop by and see what's up at The Thinking Blog.

Serenity Quest - Tisha Best

Along the trail of the 2000 bloggers, I stop and find that Liz Strauss just called Tisha an SOB.

No, that is not a bad thing. Tisha loves it!
Ha ha ha SOB stands for “Successful and Outstanding Bloggers” and Liz has got it in her head that I deserved the recognition.

Well my loyal readers I bequeath this honor to YOU! Yes to all of YOU, even the lurkers who come around to ogle my profile pic, I don’t even want to know what kinds of activities that has engendered, darts, mas…chuchum, and to all of you who comment sharing with me your thoughts, ideas, likes, dislikes, traumas, perversions, psychoses, YOU have become my friends [I am one sick little puppy to have friends like you] and YOU deserve the credit, THANK YOU!

Jump on over to Tisha's place and check it out. You'll be glad you did.

Hitchhiker Guidelines

Troy Worman's first post here said:
The blogosphere is a giant time capsule that offers a panoramic view of our world. It is a collection of personal expressions that represent virtually every human perspective of our times. It is filled with millions of personal accounts, diaries, essays, stories and photos. It is filled with art. It is filled with emotion. It is filled with thought. It is our collective conscience. Better than any collection of books or articles, the blogosphere will capture the story of our existence.
My initial posting here said:
... consider this a trail head.

We are both hiking in the blogosphere.

We have our individual likes and dislikes, our passions
and a common desire to share the experience with fellow hikers.

As we find a blogger voice that sounds like something you might be interested in
we'll post it here.

So continuing the trail and hiking analogy, when you find a site you like and think others would be interested in, share it here.

We tend to focus on the less than A list blogs. Those already have a great level of readership and generally don't need any help. Occasionally, they may still get mentioned here just because.

How to share the site is open to your creativity. Good writing on most any blog will include links to the site, perhaps some specific postings, quote from the site...

You could follow the Blog Tipping guidelines

You could create a story like David has done, sample here.

One of Karen Shanley's recent entries can be found here.

Bottom line, the objective is to create something that will entice a reader to go there and explore that blog, and of course, come back here for more!

Inklings: On the Hunch that Science Rocks

The trail makes a pit stop at Inklings: On the Hunch that Science Rocks , a science magazine full of legitimate, though quirky, science articles.

The "About Us" page describes the magazine's mission as:

"dedicated to science as we see it. Founded in late 2006, we cover the science that pervades our life, makes us laugh, and helps us choose our breakfast foods."
Here are a few recent articles:

I'd have to say I think they succeed at their mission. It's always funny and interesting.

Dipping into the archives

Looking back at who was found at this time last year is always interesting...

Tamarika is still writing here.

is still writing here.

David is still writing here.

So if you don't find something current, don't hesitate to dip into the archives. They are full of goodness!

Kavit Haria

At this next stop along the trail we find Kavit writing:

Welcome to the official weblog of Kavit Haria. This is the single blog where Kavit combines all his work, writings, philanthrophy and his quest for lifelong fulfillment.

Kavit Haria is regarded as UK’s #1 Music Success Coach, a public speaker and coach who helps musicians have more successful careers and live more fulfilled lives.

As an established musician himself (multi-percussionist), he has played with many top name musicians in a wide variety of genres (fusion-style music) throughout his career.

Kavit writes:

Here’s another great music marketing strategy you may like to try out. Once your fans sign up to your mailing list at your website, offer them free audio samplers of your music. Then over a period of a few weeks, email them frequently and become their friend, not the sales person. Being the friend always is a good thing as they can see you taking an interest in them and what they are involved in.

Read the full posting here.

Kavit writes:

How clear and so useful for us today, no matter what religion it originates from. Start chunking down your bigger goals, ambitions and wants in life into smaller, simpler activities and just notice that you’ll get to the goal faster. Maybe you’re the kind of person that knows you’ve got to get something done, but you just don’t do it and sometimes you don’t even know why you don’t take action. Well most of the time, it’s the mind that’s afraid because it’s such a big task and if you don’t complete it, you put yourself down, lose focus and frustration. Well not any more. Follow the Tao’s passage above and break things into smaller and simpler tasks and then just take action.

2000 Bloggers

In one fell swoop, here is a whole bunch of good places to go and explore.

Some of these the Team has already written about, like Tino who put this listing together.

Some of these you'll see here again as we go exploring. This will keep us busy for quite some time!

Thanks Tino!
