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.

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!

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.
Tamarika is still writing here.
Christina 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!

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.
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.

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.

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!
