What are you blogging about …finally!

So, after going on for a long time about what others are blogging about; here is the final of the series!

Though there is so much more and so many more bloggers that I would love to feature; let’s manage with the last four of the some of the most versatile blogging ideas!

STEVEN RICE : KARMIC KAPPUCCINO

I began Karmic Kappuccino as a “daily shot of inspiration” early in 2011. My purpose in starting this blog was to connect to a community of people, like myself, who were on a path of personal development. I began writing inspirational posts documenting some of the lessons that I had learned along my own journey.

Karmic Kappuccino has become so much more than a guy sharing some lessons learned and has brought me so much more joy than I had imagined at the outset.  Karmic Kappuccino has become a place where this band of friends comes together to learn together, laugh together and support each other as we all learn and grow.

When I started the site, I didn’t know if there would really be an audience for an inspirational blog that doesn’t focus on the “how-to’s” as much as it does the mindset and emotional and spiritual development of each one of us. One of the most exciting surprises of this journey has been connecting to other people—all over the world—who have become friends, supporters and have allowed me to join them on their journey of growth and change.

EARL : WANDERING EARL 

WanderingEarl focuses on my addiction to the first-hand education that world travel provides.

When I write about my nomadic adventures, I tend to focus less on the sights I visit and more on the human interactions and lessons I learn along the way.

It is also my aim to prove that a life of travel is not a crazy fantasy but is actually a very realistic and rewarding lifestyle option instead.

I chose these topics in the hopes that my own extensive travels and the decisions I made to achieve my travel goals may help motivate other people to follow through with their dream of exploring the world.

I truly believe that the more people travel, the more we eliminate the misunderstandings and assumptions that exist between different cultures, misunderstandings that foster conflict, hatred and inequality.

Travel helps us realize that people all over the world just want to live a happy, peaceful life and that, as a result, they are not much different than you and I.

 

AMANDA JOSEPH : CONFESSIONS OF A GREEN QUEEN

I blog about environmental and animal rights issues and this stems from my unwavering belief in our ability to create a sustainable, economically prosperous world without destroying the ecosystem that sustains all life on Earth.

I spent a lot of years volunteering with animals when I was younger. Horses, dogs, cats; I worked with them all. I witnessed the distress, sorrow and pain these animals had to overcome when they were abused and abandoned by the very people who were meant to love and protect them.

I now have the privilege of working as an environmental officer in the resource industry and undertaking a Master of Science in Sustainability Management which has helped balance my natural activist self with good dose of reality and business acumen. I hope to provide my readers with a balanced perspective of global environmental issues.

But if you ask me the one reason I chose to write about environmental and animal protection it would be a simple answer: If we do not speak up for those without a voice, then who will?

FARNOOSH BROCK: PROLIFIC LIVING

Prolific Living is about living life on your own terms (not on terms dictated – lovingly no doubt – by your parents or your children or your darling friends or even society at large).  I have an obsessive passion around smart habits for rich living and a tireless intent in sharing it.

Incidentally, on April 15th, 2011, I walked away from a lot of money and security because I could no longer tolerate doing what I didn’t love. You know, at some point you realize that the time is now or never. Hence I started my love affair with entrepreneurship!

So there, I was done killing my passions. Or worse, my time. I talk about cultivating smart habits and empowering your ideas into actions. I empower you to crush your daily fears and excuses and create space and possibility in your thoughts and plans. I give you what I call the essence of a prolific lifestyle and help you create your own version of it.

I ask you deep questions and take a stance on issues.

 

Also, the last deserved a bonus blogger too! So, here goes:

MAUREEN MIZERANY WIELANSKY: MAKING IT ALL FIT

The Making It All Fit Blog helps working women over 40 build their bodies so they have the energy to build their businesses.

I take a holistic approach to achieving a healthy lifestyle by sharing mental mindset shifts, delicious and fast recipes, fitness tricks to get your firm fast with a sprinkle of education and humor.

When you visit you will notice that I love to do videos, share powerpoints, write articles and provide templates and recipes that readers can download.

I started this blog because I was once a 200 pound women over 40 who lost her identity when her kids both left for school at the same time. By changing my lifestyle from harmful to healthful I was able to release 50 pounds in 9 months. I use my story to help others transform their bodes and their lives

  1. Cool! It’s really interesting to see everyone here. and the different way everyone thinks and work… every one of us is so different. and this is so beautiful to see.

    • The differences made these guys amazing. In different field of specialization, readers can learn a lot of useful ideas from them. I am blogging now and it really kinda difficult to find what’s the right subject for me but I might try it all, being different is a good thing.

      • I blogged for quite a while before I got my bearings, and touched on lots of subjects. Finally things started becoming clear to me, and now one blog—the one on kids and reading—is focused entirely on that. My personal blog is still pretty much a mashup of things I care about. Best of luck!

      Thanks so much for stopping by!

  23. Ryan Biddulph says:

    Hi Hajra,

    An A list of bloggers here. I follow Steve and love his work. The dude understands how to present spiritual, abstract concepts in a practical manner.

    Earl’s blog resonates with me. As of 4 months ago I never left U.S. soil. After travelling through Asia I realized among our cultural differences we are essentially the same. We want happiness, peace and a prospering way to make a living. Amazing how similar we are, when you get past the labels.

    Thanks!

    RB

    • Hey Ryan,

      I see you so often around the blogosphere and I keep meaning to come to your blog but have somehow missed it! I will be there soon.

      I love Steve’s work and had to make sure I feature him! Thanks for sharing that experience with us… makes us think more about why we are branding people. I am so glad that you stopped by! :)

  24. What a fantastic introduction to a cross-section of bloggers Hajra.

    I had no idea what this post would be about when I came across to check it out, so I’m pleasantly surprised to have some great recommendations to follow.

    One of the things I really love the most about the blogosphere is the way the community is linked together – across niches, genres and geography.

    We’re all bloggers, and that counts for a lot.

    • Hey Jym,,

      I am pretty bad with titles… many people have told me that my titles are misleading but I am glad you stayed by to check out the post ;)

      Blogging community is huge and the impact and the interaction is more than what can be considered in our imagination! We are just lucky to be here!

      Thanks for stopping by!

  25. Really agree with Farnoosh: the day I walked away from the money job was the day I started to really live my life the way it should be going.

    Thanks for all this Hajra

    • Hey Stuart,

      I did leave a corporate join recently and love it away from all that grinding. But somehow, I still feel I could go back and achieve so much more than I can’t in any other sector. Not that I am saying that any other sector is worse off but the only thing about the corporate sector is that it starts getting to your soul somehow! :) I really can’t make up my mind! :)

  26. WOWEE! What an absolutely amazing group of bloggers! I so love everyone’s lifestyles and life choices. This is such an inspirational bunch and I can’t wait to learn more, especially from the two bloggers that I haven’t had the pleasure of meeting yet. =) And I absolutely cannot believe that Maureen was once 200 pounds! Won’t be able to get that one out of my head. =) What an amazing lady!! =)

    • When I read Maureen’s story I didn’t believe it either! But her blog tells it how it sure can be done! She is definitely an inspiration!

  27. Hajra, you gathered such a great group of people over this series. These final choices were excellent! I have enjoyed Farnoosh’s writing for a long time (in internet terms!). I especially enjoy her literary posts, as she followed her desire to read the classics.

    I have carved a new path of my own with blogging: I write about children who aren’t being taught to read in our public schools, and it’s begun a whole new career for me. I love it!

    • Hey Paula,

      I consider myself lucky to have known such amazing bloggers like yourself. I am so glad you like the bloggers I have featured. I love the passion behind your new blog. It is helpful and educational at the same time.

      I am so glad you are doing what you love! Thanks so much for stopping by!

  28. Thanks a lot as usual you have chosen a great sort of blog from different walks of life. I think every one will find what to read and enjoy in every blog.

    • Hey Anna,

      Thanks for being such a wonderful reader always! It is such a pleasure to have you drop by always! :)

      I do hope everyone enjoys it!

  29. I was reading AMANDA JOSEPH’s site and loved. thanks Hajra for describing her site here. I just found nice blog because of this post. thank you Hajra and weblogbetter.

  30. Wonderful finale to a great series! I feel like I’ve totally branched out and learned about other bloggers from this, thank you so much for sharing them with me.

    • Hey Kayla,

      Thanks so much; this was a wonderful series to compile! I love the variety which the blogging world brings! Amazing to see such great talent across the web!

      Thanks for the appreciation! :)

  31. This are great list of good people who somehow helps us in one way or another, because they not just blogging because they love writing. They are sharing their ideas, we learned from their experiences and most of the time they motivate us to bring out the goodness in us. Thanks for sharing!

    • Hey Gracelyn,

      One striking feature about these bloggers I feature in my series is their love for writing and their passion to help others through their blogs. There is just a lot of wonderful people around and the blogging world is a proof of that!

      Thanks for stopping by! Hope you have a lovely day!

  32. It’s good to see your favorite blogger featured in this blog. I’m a loyal follower of Steven Rice. I love how he writes and really inspires me to cultivate new habits in order to be a better person. He helped me a lot not only in life in general but also in my professional life.

    • It is always wonderful to see a favorite blogger featured! What I have done here is featured some of mine. Steven’s Karmic Kappucino is such a favorite of mine; I can’t get over of how lovely the name is!

      He is definitely a blogger to watch out for!
