Blogarang

I've been "out of the office" for a few days. I've been dealing with some family issues and trying to get my stuff migrated over to this fancy shmancy new laptop I got for my 32nd birthday. In the meantime, however, some people have been very kind in supporting my work. I would like to take a minute to give them some thanks and let all of you know about some really cool blogs out there. For tapping creativity, learning about new people and new topics is essential. Here are some great places to start.

Spiritual Journey of a Lightworker
Patricia Singleton says her blog is about spirituality. I like to also think it is about strength. The strength is takes to write about difficult topics, look life in the eye, and grow stronger every day. Her blog gives me chills sometimes and reminds me what the human spirit is capable of when we refuse to back down from challenges.

Rebecca Thomas Designs
Rebecca is the epitome of creativity. Her site covers a wide selection of creative pursuits, including writing, design, jewelry, and education. A core staple of tapping creativity is keeping an interest in different art forms. And she's knows what she's talking about in each category. (Rebecca, if you read this, I owe you a copy of Tapping Creativity. You can contact me at tappingcreativity@gmail.com. I look forward to your e-mail.)

NAZMIESKI
This blog is from Malaysia. I love it because it is a great example of a personal blog that offers something more than journaling. Learning is a staple of tapping creativity. NAZMIESKI offers tech bits, history on Malaysia, and more. I have a general affinity for all things Asian. And the passion in his writing is something every writer should have. Plus, he offers lots of good information about blogging. And I know all of you are probably bloggers.

Getting Off My Ass
Funny Name. Great Blog. This blog revolves a lot around physical activity. For anything you want to pursue, however, the ability to get off your ass is the first step toward results. Why should you read it? Because it is a blog of action and inspiration. It's about struggles and successes. Those are the things that writers need more often than not.

Jim Moon
Jim is from my home state of Michigan. He is a better writer than I am. You know why? Because he writes more often than I do, and he covers more territory. Often tapping creativity is a numbers game. The more you write, the better the odds of stumbling upon something good. Jim's blog is good. Go read it. Subscribe to it. I do.

Thanks to all of you who read this blog and subscribe. It means a lot. I hope I'm giving you something worth coming back to.

(Look, I got all verklempt and finished a sentence with a preposition.)

More good stuff coming soon.

Geoff, thanks for the link and the kind words. You brought tears of joy to my eyes. I seem to be doing that a lot lately. I keep coming back to read more of what you offer because you are a great writer and your topics interest me. I have always had a broad area of topics that I enjoy reading about, same with music. I am a Saggittarine and we have a strong thirst for more knowledge. If I had the time and money, I would be a perpetual college student. I love learning. I have family visiting the next few days but when they leave, I will enjoy exploring the other sites that you mentioned. Again, thanks for your kind words. I look forward to your next article.

Geoff, Sorry about the delay and lack of posts/comments lately.

Its funny life has a way of shifting your priorities and keeping you locked her rut until she is ready to release you.

I am honored that you would have mentioned my blog in your post. It is amazing how many friends / Readers that I have gained since the beginning of my site. I truly appreciate all you have done for me and I am looking forward to many more posting of your great content.

Keep up the great work
