Happy Blog Day 2006!

Okay, I only just found out it was Blog Day a few minutes ago, but I'm going to participate anyway. Here are the instructions for participating:
1. Find 5 new Blogs that you find interesting

2. Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending on them on BlogDay 2005

3. Write a short description of the Blogs and place a a link to the recommended Blogs

4. Post the BlogDay Post (on August 31st) and

5. Add the BlogDay tag using this link: BlogDay2006 and a link to BlogDay web site at
So, since I haven't had much time to think about it, here quite quickly are five blogs I've been enjoying recently:

1 - New York Nitty-Gritty is a photo-blog from, duh, New York. Great pictures that prove the point about being worth a thousand words. I've never not liked a posting.

2 - The Martian Anthropologist is frequently interesting and always well written. Check out his comments on Islam and rape for something controversial.

3 - Islamic Facts will give you a different perspective. Check out his comments on the Jesus of the Bible v. the Jesus of the Qur'an (and part two).

4 - jspot (from Jews for Justice) rounds out this little sharing of religious viewpoints, and is the one with which I'm usually most in alignment (Progressive politics informed by Jewish ideals).

5 - Slabtown Chronicle finishes my list off with something completely different than the others; a true crime blog concerning Portland, Oregon's murder history (disclosure: this blog is written by a very good, old friend of mine, J.D. Chandler).

(And, I suppose, it's only fair to point out the blog where I learned about Blog Day 2006: Nonprofit Online News from Michael Gilbert.)

I hope you enjoy reading these other blogs. I know that once I click "Publish" I'll think of ten more blogs that I read and enjoy, but this is the first five off the top of my head.

Happy Blog Day!

  1. I ran across your site several years ago and was impressed, now I see you've linked to me. It's always nice to be linked from someone you respect!

    I'll have to check your site out all over again.
