My Fave Five ...Bodacious Blogs!


Get your mouses ready. (Or mice).
You're gonna' love the line-up today of my favorite Blog/Web picks!

It's a nice mix of men and women, and spans multiple niches.
So grab your brew of choice and let's get rolling and reading...

1. AFTER TROY (HEKTOR KARL)

...Where do I begin? His was an unexpected pleasure. Like a fine wine savored for the first time. Intoxicating.
He did me first. The result of a referral link. So, after crossing my path, I clicked on his image for an obligatory visit.
And I stayed. Long.
I found Hektor's writing to be sexy. Cerebral. Sensitive. Silly. Soulful.
And you will too.
If you stop by, make sure to read, "Do Real Men Cry?" It's among my favorites.
In fact, if I must admit, (and I shall), even his "about me" section is creative and intriguing. When it comes to writing, Hektor is Herculean. And you can quote me :-)
Let me know what you think, readers.

2. ESCAPE NORMAL (JACQUELINE BOSS)

Tired of the rat race? Then this is the spot for resources and recreational reading to cope with corporate ties. At least until you're "liberated." I dig the design, the topics are diverse, and it's easy to navigate. Definitely the destination spot for dreamers.

3. MARC & ANGEL HACKLIFE

Tips on productivity and enlightened living, provided by a couple devoted to helping others to live better. The site and its creators were also listed among the "60 Best Minds in the Blogosphere" over at Possibility of Today.com.

4. PURPLE SONG PROJECT (VANESSA)

Using her artistry to bring awareness to the devastation brought about by Domestic Violence, Vanessa writes songs and provides music therapy for healing and helping.


5. BROKE PROFESSIONALS

Interesting approach to personal finance and frugal living for "the overeducated and underpaid," created and maintained by a husband and wife team. Topics are timely with good take-away value.


Check these sites out and then check back in with me to let me know your thoughts. Are these types of posts useful to you? Is there a blog you've discovered that I should know about? Do tell.
