Welcome to the Weekly Link Roundup for October 21.
The Best Links of the Week
1. Charles Rogers came up with the idea for an International Weekly Link Roundup, a geographical way for bloggers from around the world to get introduced to the blogging community. The weekly feature was Charles’s idea, but I am publishing the post on my site.
In the spirit of introducing herself geographically for the sake of the post, Keesha Metcalf, who has gone under the pseudonym Iseland Gurl, exposed her true self–a blogger from Jamaica who has revealed her true origins. She never revealed her place of birth out of fear she’d be misjudged. Keesha reveals herself in her post, I’m Coming Out.
2. Carol Taylor lives on the island of Phuket which is off the coast of Thailand. Carol goes all out in her coverage of the Phuket Vegetarian Festival. With the expertise of a travel blogger, through words and photos, Carol gives us the feel of her island home.
3. Since Charles Rogers had the impetus for the International Weekly Roundup, it seem only fitting that he be here today representing the United States. Charles had the idea for a blogger GPS, an International Meet and Greet. Bloggers from 28 countries responded. If you would like to meet those bloggers and even add your name and your country, click Charles’s link. He called his blogging event 3-d-blogging.
I hope you enjoyed this week’s selections.
Even though the Thursday Weekly Roundup has taken an international twist, I’d still like to have a Blogging Events section, so people can be apprised of opportunities around the blogosphere.
Meet and Greets:
Saturday: Dream Big, Dream Often
Sunday: A Momma’s View
Wednesday: Harsh Reality
If anyone is having, or knows of, a blogging event going on or upcoming, be sure to let us know in the comments section.
Charles and I are still looking for bloggers from around the world (the United States included) who would like to have their articles featured.
Please introduce your country of residence and leave a link to a post you’d like promoted in the comments section. (Note: It does not have to be about blogging.)
I hope you will welcome these bloggers from around the world Keesha, Carol, and Charles in the comments section.
