Welcome to the Weekly Link Roundup for October 14.
The Best Links of the Week
The Weekly Link Roundup will take a different direction going forward.
According to Ayietim Blog,
We should be tolerant of other’s views because we see the world out of different eyes, eyes that have different colors, different shapes and different sizes. Most of the times, with patience and understanding, our different views could become the same.
In the spirit of this quote, Charles Rogers came up with an idea for an International Blogging Niche held weekly here at MostlyBlogging.
The impetus for the idea was as follows: Charles played Blogger GPS with his readers and had a geographical Meet and Greet. His readers introduced themselves by country.
Since I moved to MostlyBlogging in August, readers from 92 countries have visited! I look forward to introducing them to the MostlyBlogging community and giving their articles exposure and promotion.
Despite the differences between us, and other people in the world, we all have an endeavor that makes us the same. We come together in one common interest, blogging.
Going forward, when I promote an article in this weekly feature, I will be introducing the blogger by country. This way, despite our country of residence, and all the other differences that separate people, we can get to know each other as like-minded individuals.
Welcome to the Best Links of the Week
1. Maja (some of you know her as Masgauten) is from Norway although rumor has it she is currently working in Ireland. I do have a warm place in my heart for blogging posts. In her article 3 Things I Would Like to Apologize For, Maja apologizes to the blogging community. Are her apologies warranted? I felt this was a broader piece than about apologies. It could be subtitled, “Mistakes Bloggers Make.” I, of course, don’t think she made any mistakes. (Maja is as kind as she is talented.) Based on the 82 comments this post received, her readers don’t think she made any mistakes either. Check it out and let me know your opinion in the comments section below.
2. Richard Schulte is from San Diego, California, in the United States. His article Amazing Balboa Park Chalk Art at Little Italy’s Festa! conveys vintage San Diego. Richard went to the extreme showing the locals as well as their art in his article. If you enjoy chalk art and exploring the local flavor of cities, this post will intrigue you.
As Richard explained, he is recording history by reviewing this event. Apparently, Google highly esteemed the authority of the post, ranking it in many instances above our local newspaper and other established local media. His writing voice is so personable, you will feel he is making commentary in your ear as you explore San Diego.
3. Gift David is from Nigeria in Africa. Her blogging niche is healthy Nigerian food. Her article about how the government is involved in food production in Nigeria, and whether or not their involvement is needed, is the subject of her post. Be sure to check out How Local Governments Can Boost food Production.
Readers, please share the International Bloggers Weekly Link Roundup, so bloggers across the globe know about these opportunities to come to MostlyBlogging to get their articles promoted and have a chance to meet other bloggers from around the world.
If you would like your articles promoted in this weekly feature, and you are following this blog, please put your article link and your country of residence in the comments section.
So, what is your reaction to our International Weekly Roundup? I think Charles has a noble idea, and I hope you do too.
Maja expressed remorse for not having more time and resources to give back to the blogging community. Should bloggers feel guilt?
Gift David raised a controversial issue–government involvement. Do you believe in governmental involvement in industry? How long an arm should the government extend over the food industry?
Richard Schulte took you on a photo journey through a chalk art fair. What did you think of his post?
I look forward to your views.
