It was extremely difficult to try to pick out 5 bloggers, but here goes. #1 is the beautiful French rapper Gen-Si. Gen-Si the blog follows Gen-Si the artists' blossoming career. GEN-SI.NET C'est suivre jour après jour mon évolution dans l'industrie du disque, mes concerts, mes tournages de clip et la réalisation de mon 1er album. [...more][English (translation by Google)]
MySpace music profile for Gen-Si with tour dates, songs, videos, pictures, blogs, band information, downloads and more.
Gen-Si is a fantastic newcomer on the music scene, and hopefully one day i will get to meet her in person. For now, there is plenty of music and video to enjoy!
If I had to rebuild my blog from scratch, I would use One Man's Blog as a model, a standard to achieve. OMB is innovative and informative, with useful posts such as How I’d Hack Your Weak Passwords. While OMB may not be a brand spankin' new blog, it was new to me, thus it is here. And, like LaShawn Barber, John P. certainly knows how to attract commenters to his posts, something I haven't been able to master, despite my best efforts!
Jomiwi's blog Chimeric Day Dreams is top-heavy with great advice and information, like "Every day, no matter how bad the day begins, has the potential to be a great day. A great day is made up of great moments and happiness is achieved one moment at a time." and "The thing that makes responding to comments a pain for me, is that I have to click all these links and even in the admin panel, I hate going back and forth all the time. But think about your visitor, leaving comments can be a pain in the chooch too, so when some one goes out of their way to leave a comment on your blog, blogging etiquette instructs us to respond in kind not just to what they’ve said, but for the reason that they’ve taken the time to say it." Jon and his blog are true to his self-description: "Jon — Composer, Programmer & Speculative Thinker."
The design is very appealing, the blog is always a good read, and then... the music! It's Bettina Perroni's blog from Mexico, one that I've really come to enjoy over the last several weeks. The words, the pictures, the whole feel of Bettina's blog is akin to visiting the home of a dear friend who makes you feel very welcome and at ease. "I always live taking risks provided they can be measured, I love extreme sports and music, I am also a tireless traveller, altruistic, enthusiastic. I enjoy to cook, read about ethnic groups, play my guitar and love my familly and friends..." - Bettina
Last, but far from least, is Loomnie. Loomnie, like me, is a music lover. He also blogs Beautiful Africa Blog Carnival. Loomnie's topics span music, movies and current events, and there's never a dull moment of reading! "One of the greatest achievements of modern technology is to give us the facilities to become fully narcissistic. Or how else can one explain the expectation that someone might actually be interested in the mundane, everyday things that happen to us? The other explanation is that we are all simply bored, so bored that we love to read the simple and mundane things that happen to ordinary people." - Loomnie
Happy BLOG DAY 2007!
