Blog Day 2007 - 5 blogs for you!

Blog Day 2007

What is BlogDay?

BlogDay was created with the belief that bloggers should have one day dedicated to getting to know other bloggers from other countries and areas of interest. On that day Bloggers will recommend other blogs to their blog visitors.
With the goal in mind, on this day every blogger will post a recommendation of 5 new blogs. This way, all blog readers will find themselves leaping around and discovering new, previously unknown blogs.

In the spiirt of BlogDay, here are my 5 picks:

AnimalBytes withg Keri Dearborn

This blog and podcast focuses on all things natural, from the backyard to around the world. Recent posts include Creating a Garden That Attracts Wildlife, Of Mourning Cloaks and Hummingbirds and Beneficial Wild Creatures In Your Garden.

Goosing Your Muse with JoAnn Braheny

Managing with Aloha

This blog (and the author's book) apply ancient Hawaii philosophies to our modern world. Delving into this (for me) foriegn world provides an invigorating mental challenge that allows me to think in new ways.


I came across Chris Brogan's blog through some common Twitter friends and I have been following him closely since then. Chris is all about digital community -- what it is, how it can be used, what it means for all of us. As I expand my own work into this realm, Chris provides a welcome guidepost along the way.

I hope you enjoy these blogs, especially if they are new to you.

Do you blog? If so, check out BlogDay2007 and highlight 5 blogs that you find exceptional.

Aloha Douglas,
Thank you for reading Managing with Aloha, and for recommending MWA Coaching to your readers. It is great to meet you, and I sincerely appreciate your taking the time to study the values of aloha with me!

I had first heard of Blog Day from Chris Brogan, and I read Jay's Dumb Little Man as well, however the blogs written by Keri and JoAnn are new to me, and I shall pay them a visit: Thank you for your sharing!

I came across MWA soon before visiting Oahu for the first time, so not only was it great for thinking and business, it made the culture much more meaningful to me my trip.

Thanks for all your great work! When I get to the islands again, we should have coffee and some shave ice.

Sounds like a plan! I live on the the Big Island, but also get to Oahu almost weekly for my coaching business - be sure to let me know when you start planning your next trip.

Meanwhile, we'll keep connected through that thinking person's mental gymnastics you have mentioned :) the values of aloha give us a great playground to romp through.
