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!

Practicing Leadership, Integrity, Faith, and Excellence at Work

The other day, I blogged about practicing what we preach. And if you missed it, I highlighted the importance of walking and working with other people. (If you want the breakdown, you can read the post here)

With that in mind, I want to share a resource with you that I recently discovered, which I think is incredibly helpful and insightful: a website called Lifebiz.ph.

I think it’s still in its early stage, but if you go there now, you can already view a number of posts from their regular bloggers David Bonifacio (who I have trouble to keeping up with…last I checked, he’s a businessman who’s also involved with Habitat for Humanity and Real Life Foundation), Walden Chu (president of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf in the Philippines), and Ganns Deen (blogger, songwriter, and communications/social media expert), among others. These men are great writers and they have such good insights, that I love reading what they have to say.

I don’t know about you, but I often wish that I had more mentors in my life, or at least more time with the ones I’m currently blessed to have. But to be practical, time is such a rare commodity nowadays, so it’s difficult to find schedules that work together. That’s why I like reading articles, blogs, and books, because I feel like I get to learn from some mentors that I can meet with during a time that works for me.

Here’s a video that highlights what LIFE BIZ is all about:

Who are your favorite blogger-mentors (or should I say mentor-bloggers)?

What I’m Loving This Week (Blog-hopping & Extra-special delivery!)

I wanted to share with you some blog posts I enjoyed reading over the past week:

1) Your To-Do List as a Personal Command Center by Michael Hyatt – loved the practical tips. For someone who tends to procrastinate, I could use all the help I can get. Not everything will work for every person, but it’s always nice to pick up some fresh ideas on how to work more effectively.

2) Top Books Every Young Influencer / Leader Should Read by Daniel Decker – More books to add to my wish list! I’ve read some of these and I agree that they’re must-reads. Special mention: Made to Stick by Chip & Dan Heath. Great book.

3) 18 Great Reads that Changed My Life by Marc @ Marc & Angel Hack Life – While I’m not a fan of all his picks, I discovered some great articles through this blog post.

4) This Too Shall Pass by Owl City aka Adam Young – an informative and entertaining piece of writing (I love the ending!) on kidney stones from the guy who brought us the cool and catchy song, “Fireflies“.

and last but not the least:

5) Learnings from my 30’s I wish I would have known in my 20’s by Brad Lomenick – This was a  great post. #1—I can totally relate.

In other news, I’m taking a step of faith and applying to grad school. I’m prone to second-guessing and worrying, but today I felt reassured that my grad school application’s going to get to where it needs to be and I was reminded that my future’s always going to be in good hands. :) Look who received the package and payment for delivery:

Awesome. :)

What I’m Loving This Week (June 28 to July 4, 2010)

1) Fishforpeople.net – I can’t remember if I’ve blogged about this before, but I’ve always liked this site, which was recommended to me by @carissescueta. Visited it again today. Really awesome stuff. Here are some of my faves:

But some of his best stuff are the ones made on Flash. Be sure to check these ones out! –> Psalm 147:4, Psalm 74:16, and Isaiah 40:8.

The great news is that you can download almost the entire Fishforpeople collection here. (The uber-talented guy who created the site is generous with usage, too!)

2) Fresh content from these blogs:

3) Super Mario Bros Crossover – If you’re an 80’s kid like I am, chances are you’re pretty passionate about the Mario Bros. Thanks to Tyler Stanton for highlighting this site this week. Brings back awesome childhood memories! :)

4) The Crate & Barrel catalog – My cousin’s catalog arrived in the mail today, and my casual browsing turned into wide-eyed wonder. My nephew noticed my joy and without me knowing, he asked his mom if I could keep it and she said yes. Sweet! :) Even better: discovering that you can browse the current and previous catalogues online here. Inspiration is free…and they have a section just for that, too!

5) Formspring.me – Questions get me thinking. Thinking leads to reflecting, which leads to changing, growing, and even writing. Some of the blog posts I’ve written that were most meaningful to me started with a question that was floating around in my head. If you’d like to ask me a question, here’s a fast (and fun) way to do it. You can ask anonymously too, if you wish! –> http://formspring.me/lizetteclaudio
