Blah-g, Blah-g, Blah-g…(TOW11)


Before this year, I didn’t really follow a blog.

Well, scratch that “really”: I didn’t follow a blog at all.

I didn’t really know why or how or when or where…. you know: the necessary basics. 🙂

But through my becoming more “socially-active” on the internet by joining Twitter (@IsaWisaRamos), Pinterest (Isa Ramos or isawisa) and WordPress (this blog), I have come across several blogs that I enjoy.

1) RandomStuff >>

The "Anti-theft Lunch Bag" (from "Don't Steal My Lunch!")

This is put together by “Alexander” and, just as it sounds, it’s just a bunch of “random stuff.” He includes a mix of humorous, inspirational, interesting, and just plain random posts. For instance:

2) UndressedSkeleton >>

I know the title sounds like a freaky science-lab-‘R’-rated-romance-gone-bad, but it’s really not like that at all. The blog on Tumblr is about and by this teen girl (now 20 or 21, I think), Taralynn McNitt, who decided to make a change in her life and live by her personal mantra, “Healthy is Happy.”

On UndressedSkeleton, Taralynn tells the story of her remarkable transformation (see pic, left) as well as: shows pics of her “before and after”; encourages others who are trying to make the same life transition with motivational inspiration; and provides tips, trends, and new habits to implement in daily life that will get  results.

She continually adds new healthy and easy recipes, exercise activities, fashion sense pointers and ideas on how to live better. I find out about these updates through her Twitter, @TaralynnsTweets, which she uses quite often.

3) How Much Does God Weigh? >>

This blog is by Sammy Adebiyi, a Nigerian who is a Young Adult Pastor at North Point Church in Ohio. As a pastor to the college ages, I find Sammy’s voice in the blog posts very fresh and appealing for kids/”adults” (I refuse to take that title, just yet) my age today. His posts are always very encouraging, inspirational with a touch of humor, at times. His titles are always creative and inviting and he’s good to include stories and experiences from his daily life and family in his mini lessons, which I just love.

4) Lawfully Wedded Wife >>

As an avid foodie always looking for new recipes and ideas, I had to include one of the sites I went to several times over the holidays. Other than my pinterest “Food and Recipes” Board (which I love adding to and dreaming about), I have gotten tips from Laurenthe lawfully wedded wife.

Lauren is a 23-year old law-student, wife, and amateur food critic and cook. Busy gal. Lauren includes her critiques of meals she’s eaten at restaurants she has visited and posted several of her own recipes, documenting her steps, tips and experience making the dishes or desserts.
