Blog Notes: Random Edition

As you might imagine, I read a lot of blogs. It’s literally my job to find and promote the best blogs out there. And while most of the blogs I profile fit nicely into one category or another, often times there is an overflow of quality sites that don’t necessarily fit into one bundle. That”s not to say they’re not worth reading! They are worth it. But, for whatever reason, they haven’t been profiled here… yet. So with that in mind, I’d like to take a brief tour through some random and also awesome blogs.

August, Interrupted is the story of one brave woman’s fight with cancer. It has all the resolve, courage and inspiration you might expect from such a blog. But, what you might be surprised to find on this blog is humor. But, you’ll certainly find a lot of it. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories on oncology and living with cancer. I’d also be prepared to be moved to tears. I was. Check out the full review here.

Bike Gang! is the online home for stories relevant to biking, reviews of products, cool pictures and just about everything else two-wheeled. They also review ‘real people’s bikes’ as well as promote information on best practices for road safety. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything bike related. I understand they’re friendly to product reviews, too. Check out the full review here.

The Daily is the first “newspapers” for the digital age. It came about with the advent of the tablet reader and it “delivers” once a day. But, unlike most print publications, it updates constantly. But, like most newspapers, it covers just about everything you’d want to know about. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories on any topic. They seem to cover it all. Check out the full review here.

ONA Issues is a blog dedicated to the growing cadre of digital journalists. Not surprisingly, this is a growing concern. The world is going digital and so, too, is the news. But, that doesn’t mean that the rigorous ethics of journalism should go the way of the printed paper. This blog is here to keep those standards alive. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with social media and journalism. Check out the full review here.

Four Pins is a fashion blog with a  great sense of humor. But, don’t get it twisted. They also have a very good sense of fashion. In fact, I might be checking this site before I go fall clothes shopping. But, this is a blog I’d follow even if I didn’t have clothes to buy. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories not just about fashion, but about where fashion intersects with other parts of life. Check out the full review here.

That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…

Nonprofit Blogs: Good Work Done Well

This week my focus is on nonprofit blogs.  I enjoy charity and giving. (I actually run my own nonprofit.) And it’s not surprising that these things should be enjoyable. For as Portia says to Shylock in The Merchant of Venice, the “quality of mercy… is twice blessed, it blesseth him that gives and him that takes.” In other words, it feels good to give. We should do it more often. Still, it should be done wisely. It’s great to give of ourselves. But, it’s even better to do it well. So with that in mind, let’s gather up some canned food, write this off as tax deductible as we enjoy this brief tour through some of the best nonprofit blogs I’ve seen lately.

Passionate Giving is a blog born out of Veritus Group. Or better yet, the Veritus Group is their job. Passionate Giving is, you guessed it, their passion. They believe in nonprofits. But, they also believe in having fun. This blog is about where those two worlds meet. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d loom for stories about major gifts. Things concerning nonprofit consulting might also work. Check out the full review here.

Points of Light is a blog about nonprofits. But, really, it’s about the individual. It’s about the people who make changes in their worlds. It is through this lens that they examine the world of charity and giving. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories about how individuals can affect change in their communities. Stories of successful nonprofit launches might also work.  Check out the full review here.

Stanford Social Innovation Review examines how the worlds of academia, business, nonprofits and government offer solutions to the pressing problems of the world.  If I were to pitch this blog, I’d run whatever I was about to say through spell check first. This is a Stanford publication, after all. Check out the full review here.

Future Fundraising Now is concerned with making fundraising as effective as possible. And, in their opinion, the donors are the most important thing on which to focus. After all, how else to effectively raise funds than to focus on those who give and why. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories about fundraising, specifically ones about how it can be done better. Check out the full review here.

OneOC is a nonprofit blog specifically geared towards Orange County, California. Still, the methods, best practices and case studies outlined in this blog could more than likely be applied to just about anywhere else in the world. It might also be beneficial to mimic the passion and energy portrayed here, too. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories about charitable giving in Southern California. Check out the full review here.

That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…

Corporate Blogging Best Practices

Action shot of our manager of blogger relations Tom Hynes, blogging.

Recently, we hosted a webinar with Jeff Corbin of KCSA on best practices for corporate blogging. Everyone wants to know how their company, how their brand can blog well. And while I may have the word “blogger” in my title, Jeff’s a CEO who blogs. In other words, we were lucky to have him on hand to provide a great example of how to blog well.

Jeff’s not only a great blogger, but he also gets it. By that, I mean he sees the benefit of a good corporate blog.  I thought I knew all the benefits of a solid blogging strategy, but even I learned a thing or two during our hour together.

“Our blog is a way to reinforce our brand,” said Corbin.  “The blog creates a real window into our corporate culture.”

It’s also worth noting that every employee of KCSA is encouraged to contribute to the company blog.  And, like most of KCSA’s blog strategy, this is smart for a few reasons. For one, have you ever tried to blog every day? It’s hard coming up with content. Best to have a stable of authors to help shoulder the load.

Secondly, blogging boosts morale. Writing a blog post can be a nice distraction to a static work routine. The blog then becomes everyone’s property. What’s more, when asking an employee to write a blog post, you’re essentially gaining the exposure of their individual social circles. Put another way, if someone writes a blog post, they’re probably going to want to promote it. They’re probably going to want to share it with the people they know. And that means more eyeballs on your company blog.

To that end, Corbin also encourages utilizing the occasional guest blogger. Not only do you get their outside perspective, but you also get the benefit of being exposed to their audiences.

Finally, consistent blogging helps SEO. And that makes sense. SEO is an algorithm controlled by logic. The more you publish, the more you link, the more you get shared, the higher up you’ll appear in search.

“Blogs must have a clear message, provide actionable advice, and reinforce position,” said Corbin. “Plus personality.”

And I think that last point is pretty important. Jeff Corbin and KCSA provide a great example of effective blogging. But, even on a more macro level personality, or tone, or voice, or whatever you want to call it is crucial to successful blogging. All too often, people lose their voice when they blog. It’s as though the written word is seen as this precious thing that must be treated delicately. And, hey, look, the written word is a really great thing! But bloggers shouldn’t be afraid to write how they speak. If you don’t speak in long-winded sentences that run on and on, then why would you write like that?

Furthermore, blogs should have an angle. When I think of the word “angle,” I think of a point of view or a perspective, sure. But I also think of the word’s literal meaning in geometry. I think of two lines meeting at one point. Great blogs have a perspective, but they’re also often an intersection of subjects.

Take for example Tight Laces in 50 Places. This is a blog about a guy who wants to run a half marathon in every state. It’s a running blog, but it’s also about travel. More often than not, people don’t actually want to read about food, fashion, home design, or whatever. They want to read about how all of those things play into people’s lives. They want to hear from human beings.

It’s no surprise Corbin stressed the importance of having a personality when blogging.

Book Blogs You’re Bound to Enjoy!

This week my focus is on book blogs. I’m happy to say that I’ve been reading a lot more books lately. I’m still on the old paper and print regime. Admittedly, that’s a little old school. But, you know, no offense to tablet readers, but books don’t run out of batteries. They are simply there waiting to be read, to be picked up, to be enjoyed. They are at once teachers and passports. They can even be friends. So with that in mind, let’s find a comfortable spot, mark our page and enjoy this brief tour through some of the best book blogs I’ve read lately.

Book Riot is a blog that attacks the subject of publishing form all sides. It’s at times frenetic.  It’s probably friendlier than an actual riot. But, as far as blogs go, it’s probably just as energetic. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything having to do with books. This could extend beyond the world of publishing to the world of furniture and/or design when you think of things like bookcases, etc. Check out the full review here. It was written by our very own Rachel Manwill. (Thanks, Rachel!)

Books are my Boyfriends is a blog that treats books like relationships. Each book is treated like a date, like a boyfriend. And, truthfully, I’ve read a whole bunch of books that were way better than the vast majority of my former relationships. Books can be just as fulfilling as a relationship is what I’m trying to say.  If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with books. Despite the title, this isn’t really a relationship blog. Check out the full review here.

Brews and Books is a blog dedicated to two of the best things in life: books and beers. Honestly, if you’re like me, you’ve been waiting for a blog like this.  And it doesn’t disappoint. It also makes me realize that a good beer and a good book both take time, patience and skill. What’s more, when done right, they’re both worthy of appreciation. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with beers or books. It stands to reason that a book about beer would probably be ideal. Check out the full review here.

The Book Smugglers are actually smugglers. Or they were. No they’re more bloggers. Still, they remain about as addicted to books as one can be. They love the books they’ve already read and are excited about the ones yet to come out. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with new books.  If you were hawking a line of humongous handbags, this might not be a bad blog to pitch. Check out the full review here.

Omnivoracaious is the book blog that accompanies Amazon. It’s what the people who work for the largest bookseller in the universe think about books. It’s sort of a must read for those who love books and the surrounding industry. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d keep in mind that these people all work at Amazon and have probably already heard of every book ever made. Check out the full review here.

That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…

Fitness Blogs: Let’s Get Physical!

 

This week my focus is on fitness blogs. And, truthfully, fitness should be everyone’s focus every week. As far as I know, these are the only bodies we get. Treating them well through exercise and care should be everyone’s priority. It stands to reason that other parts of our lives will probably see improvement as a result. Commuting can become easier. Anxiety can be decreased. Weights can even be lifted well into our golden years. So with that in mind, let’s tighten our laces, take a few deep breaths and enjoy this brief tour through some of the best fitness blogs I’ve seen lately.

Tight Laces in 50 Places is the story of one (possibly insane) man’s quest to run a half marathon in all 50 states.  He likes to jog. He wants to see every state in the Union. This is his blog. Call him crazy. (I did.) But, don’t say that it’s not an impressive effort. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything that sits at the intersection of jogging and travel. Check out the full review here.

Daily Cup of Yoga is the story of a man learning the daily practice of yoga. And just to be clear, he really began from nothing, having really never tried it only a few years back. Today, he’s not only practiced yoga relentlessly, he’s also read and collected just about everything written on the subject. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories surrounding yoga, as well as any products that come along with it. Check out the full review here.

Seacoast Fitness Daly is a blog dedicated to healthy living in coastal New Hampshire, specifically Portsmouth.  But, don’t get it wrong. This site extends way beyond the confines of this one town. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories that have to do with exercise. Anything to do with road races, triathlons or other sporting events in New England would probably also work. Check out the full review here.

High Heels & Two Wheels is not only the name of this blog, it’s also what this blogger can be seen sporting most days. That is to say, just because she’s traded in the four wheels of her car for the two wheels of her bicycle, does NOT mean that she’s making her wardrobe suffer. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories surrounding biking and fashion. Check out the full review here.

Stumptuous is not technically a women’s weightlifting blog. It’s technically gender neutral. And while I can safely say that a man can also find this blog helpful, it’s definitely geared toward the fairer gender. It’s also worth mentioning that this blog is hilarious. What’s more, it’s a great resource for anyone who wants to feel their best. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories on weightlifting. Check out the full review here.

That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…

Blog Notes: Hispanic Heritage Edition

This week my focus is on Hispanic blogs. And that’s no coincidence. Hispanic Heritage Month is underway. Clearly, the Hispanic contribution to American society is immense.  Just look, well, anywhere! You’ll find it in politics and fashion and travel and food and entertainment, and, well, just about everywhere. And obviously there are a ton of great blogs out there documenting this. So with that in mind, let’s brush up on our Espanol and enjoy this brief tour of some of the best Hispanic blogs I’ve seen lately.

VOXXI is first and foremost a news blog, and an Hispanic blog second. The Hispanic community reaches far across our culture. Not surprisingly, this blog also covers a lot of ground. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories where Hispanic culture intersects with politics, entertainment or business. Stories about Marco Rubio might work, too, as they have a certified “Rubiologist” on staff. Check out the full review here.

The Other Side of the Tortilla is technically a food blog. It’s got the pictures and the recipes to back that thesis up. But, it’s also the story of a married couple. It’s also the story of discovering even that which could be quite close to you. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories around food, travel of photography. If you had a recipe for tortilla soup or something similar, that might work. But, I wouldn’t necessarily bank on it. Check out the full review here.

Dos Lives is an entertainment blog located in New York City. The name comes from the straddling of two (or “dos”) lives. This is a blog about the Latino experience, but it’s probably true of any cultural group in America. There is a desire to become a part of the larger society while still keeping true to one’s roots. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories about entertainment, music or film. Check out the full review here.

Curves and Chaos is a blog dedicated to life, travel, beauty and fashion. And speaking of fashion, it’s not the type of blog to cater to women who resemble a Barbie doll or some other unrealistic shape or size. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with travel and fashion. And If I were to pitch clothing, I’d make sure it was the kind of stuff that real people would wear. Check out the full review here.

The Domestic Buzz is written by a mother and wife in the suburbs of Washington, DC. Not surprisingly, the blog deals a lot with matters of raising children and marriage. But, it’s a lot more than that, too. It deals with politics and the environment and education. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories that affect families, both inside the house and out. Check out the full review here.

That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…

Religion Blogs: Coexisting Peacefully

This week my focus is on religion blogs.  The best thing I’ve ever heard about religion is the story of the elephant and the blind men. It goes something like this: A group of blind men approach an elephant. One finds a leg and thinks he’s found a tree. One finds the trunk and thinks he’s found a snake. One finds a tusk and thinks he’s found stone. The idea is none of them are wrong, but none of them are completely correct either. Whether we like it or not, our faculties are limited.  We are actually quite blind to the workings of the universe and creation. Therefore, when contemplating the divine, it’s probably best to take a look at the whole picture, the whole elephant if you will.  So with that in mind, let’s remain respectful of different perspectives, realize we may not know it all, and enjoy this brief tour through some of the best religion blogs I’ve seen lately.

Hindu-Blog balances the needs and concerns of modern Hinduism with the rich cultural history of the ancient faith. In fact, that’s sort of their mission statement. This blog may deal a lot with the past, but it’s also has its eyes trained squarely on the future. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with the Hindu religion, including events related to it. Check out the full review here.

Velveteen Rabbi is a blog written by a rabbi. But, it is so much more than a Jewish blog. However, as in real life, Judaism touches on many parts of the practitioners life. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d obviously look for anything to do with Judaism. Foreign policy stuff could work here. Items related to family and motherhood would also work. And if all else faiils, try poetry! Check out the full review here.

Dharma Folkis a blog where Buddhism meets Internet culture.  In one post, the blog deals with misrepresentations of Buddhism. On the next, they may discuss the politics of Aung San Suu Kyi. Now, to be honest, I don’t know how exactly one would go about pitching a Buddhist blog. I suppose keep it simple. Perhaps, a story about a new book or the benefits of meditation might work. In any event, I’d probably keep the email brief. Check out the full review here.

Creative Muslims has taken it upon themselves to portray Muslim Americans in a positive light. Their profiles extend across the worlds of tech, social media, design, philanthropy, sports or art.  Basically, if a Muslim is doing good work, you’re going to read about it here. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with Islam in America.  Check out the full review here.

Compassion is a blog dedicated to bringing awareness to children in need. As you might recall from your New Testament studies, charity and service to others is sort of the whole point behind Christianity. This blog takes up that cause, directing readers to ways they can help those who need it. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories surrounding child poverty, charity, and, yeah, compassion. Check out the full review here.

That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…

Transportation Blogs: Going Places

This week my focus is on transportation blogs. I like to make a big deal out of the fact that I bike to work. But, there’s also a metrocard in my pocket. Ditto a zipcar membership card. Truthfully, everyone benefits from a variety of transportation alternatives, just as everyone will benefit from continued innovation in the sector.  Things are by no means perfect. There is still a tremendous amount of work to be done. Luckily, there are a lot of great blogs on which to read all about those efforts. So with that in mind, let’s take a look at our maps, remember our transfers and enjoy this brief tour through some of the best transportation blogs I’ve seen lately.

The Transport Politic is a great resource if, like me, you’re a big transit nerd. It’s probably also enjoyable if you’re not. (But, how would I know?) The site is a great resource for what’s coming in the world of mass transportation, but also a great place to discover what’s already in place. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories surrounding transit policy. Anything to do with government funding and infrastructure might also work. Check out the full review here.

I particularly like the blog Bike Commuters, because I am one.  That’s how I get to work. It’s how I get most places. This blog is a great resource for all the products and know-how any bike commuter (or aspiring bike commuter) could ever need. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories surrounding bike commuting. Products and gear related to biking would probably work, too. Check out the full review here.

The Transit Wire is a blog dedicated to bringing information on transportation projects throughout the world. One great thing about this blog is that they don’t necessarily espouse any particular opinions. Rather, they provide information, and they provide a great deal of it. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories on mass transportation systems and, specifically, the user experience therein. Check out the full review here.

Human Transit is a personal blog written by a bona fide transit professional. This isn’t about forcing the reader to share his values, however. This is about providing perspective and clarity on a pretty vital issue. All of this is done by citing various examples and case studies from all around the world. And it is done well.  If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories around specific transit plans. Stories that highlight how transportation affects city life would probably also work. Check out the full review here.

Half Mile Circles refers to the distance most people are willing to walk before opting for an automobile. This blog maintains that cities and the people who plan them ought to put as much important and cool stuff in that radius as possible. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with transportation in urban settings. Stories surrounding the medical benefits of walking might also work. Check out the full review here.

That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…

Beverage Blogs: Bottoms Up!

This week my focus is on beverage blogs. Like most of you, I drink beverages every single day. They are LITERALLY necessary to my existence, or at least water is. But, they’re also delicious, invigorating and complex.  What’s more, beverages are big business.  After all, people are always going to need something to drink. Whether it’s a craft beer or a Colombian coffee, thirsts will probably never be fully quenched. So with that in mind, let’s grab some cups, pour a drink of our choice, and enjoy this brief roundup of some of the best beverage blogs I’ve seen lately.

Alcademics is more than likely the best liquor blog out there. Put another way, it’s top shelf. Camper English is an authority on the subject and every post showcases his unique perspective and unmatched knowledge. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories around liquor or spirits. Stories around specific cocktails will work, but so too will pieces about the liquor industry as a whole. Check out the full review here.

Dr. Vino is actually a doctor. He has a Ph. D. He’s also an expert on wine. He’s written a couple of books on the subject, not to mention a LOT of blog posts. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for anything to do with wine and the industry surrounding it. Stories that also have to do with international affairs and economics might work here, too. Check out the full review here.

Blog About Beer is just what it sounds like. What you might not be able to glean from the name is the excitement, enthusiasm and all around love for all things hops, barley, water and wheat that this blog exudes. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories about craft beers. Any product that helps individuals brew their own beers at home might also work. Check out the full review here.

Dear Coffee, I Love You is a blog dedicated to the popular caffeinated beverage, yes. But, it’s a lot more than that. It’s also a blog about the products that accompany cups of joe. It’s also about the distance people will travel to sample great coffee. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories that intersect coffee with either travel, design or humor. Check out the full review here.

BevReview.com is a blog dedicated to the beverage industry. If there’s a new flavor, a new brand or even a new ingredient, you’ll read about it here. But the site is by no means flat. This blog also has a sense of humor, as well as a sense of the industry’s historical context.  If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories that deal with non-alcoholic beverages. Stories about individual products will work. But, so will stories about the larger market in general. Check out the full review here.

That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…

Design Blog: Everything In Its Right Place

This week my focus is on design blogs. Thoughtful design is more than just good-looking. It’s more than just cool. It can shape the way we live our lives. It can promote tranquility and peace of mind. It often can extend to our homes, our travel, our food and even our family life. It can be professionally done, or it can be done yourself. And it doesn’t have to cost a fortune either. So with that in mind, let’s draw up some plans, consider the space, and enjoy this brief tour through some of the best design blogs I’ve seen lately.

The Frugal Materialist proves that you can have an expensive look to your living space without actually spending too much money. Focusing on creativity, ingenuity and good, old-fashioned bargains, this blog shows tons of inspiring projects that will make your house beautiful, while leaving your bank account intact.  If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories that showcase home design ideas with a focus on frugality and do it yourself. Check out the full review here.

Chaotically Creative is a blog written by a mother and daughter team, who recognize that families make you busy. At times, things can be hectic. But, it doesn’t mean our lives can’t have order as well as creativity. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for home design projects that don’t take too much time. Stories that also intersect with mothers and family might also work. Check out the full review here.

Unconsumption is actually one of my favorite blogs. The site consistently features alternative uses for what might otherwise be considered junk or trash. Furthermore, the site promotes a new way of thinking. Anyone can practice unconsumption. And this site can help show the way. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for economically sustainable design. Anything that inspires creative reuse would probably work here, too. Check out the full review here.

Retro Renovation is a blog focused on mid-century housing design aesthetics.  The thinking is that the modern look isn’t always the best look. And this blog puts that thinking to work in literally every room in the house. Plus, the good news is that as time goes by, only more and more styles become retro! If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories that highlight classic housing looks. Check out the full review here.

Cool Hunting probably casts the widest net of all these blogs. It’s a design blog, yes. But, they also cover tech, travel, culture, food, style, art and just about everything else where “cool” design shows up. If I were to pitch this blog, I’d look for stories that highlight the best of design. Where it happens hardly matters. If it’s good, it will probably show up here. Check out the full review here.

That’s all for now. In the meantime, if there’s a blog I should be reviewing, drop me a line or a note in the comments, and I’ll take a look. Until next time…
