Today is BlogDay—the third annual, I might add. The point of BlogDay is to get to know other bloggers and help blog readers find new and interesting blogs. So, in the spirit of sharing the wealth, here are my five recommended blogs:
- Bay & Environment is the Baltimore Sun's blog devoted to news about Maryland's environment. Contributing reporters Tom Pelton, Rona Kobell, Tim Wheeler, and Chris Guy do an excellent job with their interesting and informative posts. I'll often reference and link to Bay & Environment posts from here, I like them so much.
- Earth 911 empowers the Earth's citizenry with community-specific 'actionable' environmental information for you to use in everyday life for the purpose of living responsibly by contributing to the solution of sustainability." This blog has so much great info and posts so frequently I have a hard time keeping up. Once I get on their site I could cruise around for hours.
- National Parks Traveler is not, as you might assume from the name, a travel blog. Rather, it follows the issues involving our national parks. Our national parks are--like the Chesapeake Bay--national treasures. And as with the Bay, if we don't concern ourselves with their health and well being, they might not be there for future generations to enjoy.
- Woody's Kayak Trip Reports is the first blog a came across when I started at CBF. I was looking for folks who enjoy this national treasure that is the Chesapeake Bay. I've kayaked twice in my life--I love it but I'm definitely not "active." But that's okay because Woody's reports take me out there and are wonderful reminders of why I love the Bay so much.
- Clagett Farm, John Smith Water Trail, CBF Tech and CBF's other blogs. Yes, I know, I'm cheating on this one. But here's why I like them:
- The folks on Clagett Farm post some seriously awesome recipes, along with updates about their Community Supported Agriculture program.
- CBF Tech is currently all about CBF's implementation of Blackbaud's BBDM product. It's not so much that I need to keep up on the project as that author Michael Sola is simply fun to read.
- The John Smith Water Trail, well, because I write it!
