today is blogDay 2006
5 new blogs for you to check out:
"BlogDay was initiated with the belief that bloggers should have one day which will be dedicated getting to know other bloggers, from other countries or areas of interests."
Today, on 'sharing the love' BlogDay, I recommend you check out the following blogs from outside of the foodblogosphere:
This blog is dedicated to nifty kitchen appliances. It's a great resource which has already inspired me enough that I bought a birthday gift for a friend after first seeing it on this blog. Definitely a good way to keep abreast of stylish new products, as well as those that seem a little bit unnecessary.
Non Dairy Diary
I have already mentioned my friend Del's blog several times before, but just in case any readers missed the previous links, the time to enjoy her charming illustrations is today. Let me tell you that as you might expect Del, a French woman, loves her food, and although she is not a food blogger per se, you will find vegetables and fruits popping up all over her blog in the cutest ways imagineable.
This is the group blog of our LA-based friend, Matthieu, his son Barthélémy and some other members of his family living in France. Although it is written in French, the amount of text you'll see there is minimal, this blog is mainly about thought-provoking photography (rarely food), and we all know that sometimes pictures can speak louder than words, whatever language they are written in.
Fellow, just-turned-40 Bay Area resident, Dagny, who "looks good in a tiara" (I can relate to that), is currently a teacher who describes herself as a "former party girl". She does not write a food blog, but I think she loves to read some of them and she sometimes writes a little about food. If you read Dagny regularly, you might consider that she hasn't actually stopped partying just yet.
I love to check into this charming blog daily to see the illustrations of Elizabeth Perry. Again, this one is not a food blog, but food is sometimes the subject of Elizabeth's art.
If it's still the 31st August as you read this, it is not too late to take part in Blogday 2006 yourself. Once you've procrastinated a while reading my own suggestions, above, why not post your own list of blogs to check out. Leave a link in the comments section here if you like and I am sure I will
PS Thanks to Chef Paz for encouraging food bloggers to take part in blogDay today.
PPS I have been getting some blog love today too, which makes me feel all fuzzy and warm inside. Thanks Tanya!
