Tell Me Thursday: Let’s talk about blogs!

Two Thursdays ago, I asked about books. This week, it’s all about blogs!

Through the years, blogs have inspired, educated, and entertained me. I love learning from experts, friends, and peers, and I’ve picked up ideas and thoughts that have been helpful and useful in different areas of my life.

Tell me: Who are the bloggers or what are the blogs that you follow? (And if you have a blog, share your blog’s address so we can check it out!)

You can see the list of blogs I follow on the lower right side of this site. But I want to discover (and share) new ones! Share your blog address or your blog recommendations by leaving a comment below, and I’ll choose some sites to highlight soon!

If you want to receive updates when I publish new blog posts, you can subscribe via RSS or e-mail. You can also follow me on Twitter.

Back to blogland with some great links for blog-hopping.

If you have been following this blog, you may have noticed that I have been very delinquent when it comes to posting. Of course, I have a ton of excuses, none of which I am posting, because at the end of the day, I know I just really need to make time to post! I think I’ll go back to a 30-day blog challenge or I’ll do a 3-posts-a-week challenge to boost my blogging again.

And speaking of boosting, I’m going to kick it off with a simple list of great links, because I haven’t posted one in a while. What can I say, I like to share! Different topics for different folks….enjoy!

1) FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT – Adorable advice from a 4-year old’s perspective over here at Steven Furtick’s blog. A must-watch for those who need to learn a simple and easy way to budget, save, AND honor God at the same time.

2) ENJOYING LIFE & KEEPING THINGS SIMPLE – A really nice and beautiful post by Myra Watkins: http://myrawatkins.blogspot.com/2009/06/keeping-it-simple-and-real.html — It put a smile on my face and brightened up my day.

3) PARENTING & INFLUENCING YOUR FAMILY – Some great thoughts from Reggie Joiner, by way of Michael Hyatt’s blog: http://michaelhyatt.com/2009/10/two-approaches-to-influencing-the-family-catalyst-day-0.html — I don’t have a family of my own yet, but it doesn’t hurt to learn more about being a godly wife and mother in the future!

4) METAPHORICAL READING, MARKETING & THE MUSIC INDUSTRY – An insightful blog post from music marketing guru, Derek Sivers. His blog is a must-read for all people who want to make music for a living. Having come from different jobs that immersed me in media, marketing, and the music industry (and also from being around musicians a lot), I’m a huge advocate of taking into account marketing principles when it comes to making and selling music. I believe that musicians (and all artists, for that matter) can be true to themselves while being wise and strategic with their careers. Artists don’t have to die for their art. Really…please don’t.

Okay, that’s it for now from me! Random selection, right? Well, if you know me, you know I love randomness. :) Here’s what to expect this week from my blog:

1) RepubLIKHA’s 1st Children’s Music Fest – photos from the event, highlights, and more

2) I’ll be reviewing a new book. I’m thinking if I should go with Seaside Letters, a Christian chick-lit book (oh yes, they have those too!) or Find Your Strongest Life by strengths guru Marcus Buckingham. Either way, I’ll review both this month :) By the way, in case you were wondering, the winner of my A Million Miles in a Thousand Years book giveaway was Terri Tan. Congrats Terri! I sent her the book a couple of weeks ago. I hope she’s liking it!

3) Photography class – should you take one or not? I’m taking my first-ever class now, and I’ll tell you more about it. For now, I’ll tell you, I’m loving it. :)

Eureka! That’s it! From now until the end of the year, I’ll be going with a theme: HOW TO LOVE YOUR LIFE. :)

Now I’m excited. :) See you back here soon!

Update / 30-day blog challenge warm-up!

This month has been a busy month…in a good way!

I’ll be teaching/coaching for the first time today at the University of Makati together with the other LIFE teachers/coaches. I’m looking forward to this! I also started a new women’s small group with old friends and new friends that meets on Tuesday nights.

Busy, busy! So I haven’t been able to blog properly. Maybe I’ll do the 30-day blog challenge (I was inspired by my friends and former co-workers at Summit Media, Mariel Chua and Alvin Jimenez). I’ll start on August 1 :) Want to join me?

In the meantime, I just posted a blog on the RepubLIKHA artist workshops in the RepubLIKHA site. Check it out!

Have a happy Thursday!
