My Latest Blog Crush

cupid

Yes, it is wholly ridiculous to have a crush on anything other than a human being or a pet.  But blogs… blogs are special.  At their best, they not only inform but they also validate your cause, help you take that next step in your journey and (on that rare and lovely occasion) lead you down an unexpected but exciting new path of thought, discussion or action.

I love finding new blogs that interest me that I can share with other people.  I found two blogs (about blogging) that I think are great tools for anyone with blogs (and let’s face it, there are probably thousands of blogs online proclaiming to be essential help for bloggers).

Rather than run down a list of reasons why I like these two blogs, I’d love to hear if you find them helpfull and bookmark-worthy yourself!

The first blog is BlogPerfume.com. Launched in 2007, Blog Perfume mantra is simple and, like good perfume, very alluring:

We pick the best WordPress themes, plugins and blogging resources.

We love and enjoy blogging as much as you do. We would like to collect all the useful WordPress themes, plugins, and blogging resources for pro-bloggers. Makes Bloggers life a lot easier.

How can you not love that?  The content, the writing and the design of the site are just as clean, straightforward and alluring.

The second blog is a dedicated to social media and is called, aptly enough, SocializedPR.com.  Socialized PR is an odd little blog that seems to have a lot to say (and, so far, I’m listening).  I also don’t want to post a picture of the blog as it will give away its unique design as well.  That is all I’m going to say about that (just check it out for yourself).

Thoughts?

What Blog Academy Members are Saying…

meetup-badge

I’m excited at the prospect of meeting all of the members (72 members and counting) of The New York Blog Academy (especially tomorrow, at our first official meetup!).

Until then, I thought it might be interesting for you to see what members of New York Blog Academy are saying about their expectations for this meetup.  These are comments that have been left on our Meetup.com Meetup Homepage so feel free to mosie on over there, look at the comments and check out the profiles of our members to get acquainted with the group.

As you can see from the comments below, we have a lively group of people from various backgrounds (and with unique voices) in the New York Blog Academy meetup who are enthusiastic to meet one another and bring their blogging goals to fruition:

  • “ Excited at idea of having a blog, especially as I dont find it easy to learn new Internet things! I woreked for the National Theatre when I lived in the UK, and suspect can get quite a good blog going once I understand, and look forward to meeting others. ”
  • “A friend of mine roped me into it. We committed to becoming famous bloggers.”
  • “I am very interested in learning about blogging and how it will help me in presenting blogs as options for my clients.”
  • “I am on the verge of starting my own blog and looking for my voice and identity. So happy you are doing this, Charlie!”
  • “Sounds fantastic! ”
  • “I could use some guidance of course but also I think rubbing shoulders with those that are blogging regularly, or at least aspiring to, could be helpful. “
  • “This is EXACTLY what I’ve been looking for in regards to my latest project! “
  • “Sounds like a great group! “
  • “I would like to start blogging. I need to write more often and I think this is the direction I should be going in.”
  • “I AM CREATING A BLOG PERSONALLY AND AS PROGRAMMING DIRECTOR OF OUT IN TV AND FILM. LOOKING TO NETWORK, GREAT IDEA FOR A GROUP!! “
  • “I am process of creating my blog and I wanted to hone my craft. “
  • “Not sure what I’m looking for – but it sounds interesting…. “
  • “I have been blogging for a while and I have tried tons of different blogging platforms. I would love to share my ideas with the group and hopefully help others create amazing blogs. “
  • “I’m totally interested in making my blog pop and learn some new stuff to add on to make it more professional looking and spike up the content. I’m in… “
  • “It’s just what I need now! “
  • “I have a blog that has died due to lack of activity. I would love to be reinspired and get back in the game. “
  • “I’m a fiction writer with lots of friends who blog, and I’d like to better understand a form that’s really great when done well. “
  • Blogging brings up writer’s block for me. So, I like the idea of discussing the process with other blogphiles (or would-be bloggers). So, Phantom(e) “Charlie”, what are we in for???? Look forward to it.
  • “I’m a professional blogger and i’d like to meet other folks who want to blog”
  • “I’m very interested in blog writing. This sounds like an awesome group!”

Hope to see you at our first meetup tomorrow (if you can’t make it tomorrow, don’t worry, there will be many more Blog Academy meetups!).  And if you haven’t joined yet, please do:  New York Blog Academy Membership.
