ten interesting websites

November 7, 2009

It’s pretty hard to keep up the blogging post month whatever thing. Running out of inspiration fast, so today’s post will be dedicated to other people’s ideas! Here are ten interesting blogs & websites, in no particular order.

1. Vintage November. Amanda’s gorgeous site with a lovely dress each day for the month. I feel privileged to actually know Amanda in person.

2. Doctor woman. Another mother / woman / doctor / Christian blog. Thoughtful writing and someone I can relate to a lot.

3. Charlotte’s web. My old favourite from the old blogging days (2006-7) good to see Charlotte is still going strong.

4. Creative nonfiction. This is a journal website and also a facebook group, accepts submissions for essays. Here is the definition of creative nonfiction:


“The word “creative” refers simply to the use of literary craft in presenting nonfiction—that is, factually accurate prose about real people and events—in a compelling, vivid manner. To put it another way, creative nonfiction writers do not make things up; they make ideas and information that already exist more interesting and, often, more accessible.”

5. CiteULike. A useful site for storing journal references or creating a library of bookmarks for just about anything.

6. Karaoke Sydney. I like this site because it has a lot of detail about where you can go in Sydney to sing Karaoke. It contains a map for several different days of the week, as well as reviews on some of the venues.

7. Po Bronson. This man wrote possibly the most interesting book of biographical case histories I have ever read, called “What Should I Do With My Life” and has subsequently written other very interesting books including one on parenting.

8. Flow: the psychology of optimal experience. A link to book review of this famous book by the man with a very long name. I really wish I had found, bought and read this book by now (along with the other 137 books which are sitting on my bedside table bookshelves or in fact still in the shop waiting to be read by me) but reading this review I almost don’t have to read the book.

9. Journey Mama. Someone else who is trying to do a BloPoMo (why do we do this again?) and has an interesting life.

10. Last but not least, godless monkey. Who knows what this blog is about, I found it at the “alpha inventions” blog randomiser and I just like the name.

That’s it for today – what a struggle!
