Nir Ofir started blogDay three years ago for a darn good reason. As he says:
I initiated the blogDay in 2005 with the belief that bloggers should have one day which will be dedicated to discover new blogs and expose them to the world.
I was all psyched to take part. . . . But that “living in the moment thing” got the best of me. blogDay 3 was August 31. I woke up today, and the world is on September 3rd. Even now I’d still be clueless without help from a hero down the road.
So, I’m saying . . . at least I remembered I forgot. Sorry.
Happy Belated blogDay3
I celebrated a bit on August 5th, by answering Jeff Pulver’s tag. Still my plan was to celebrate with the world, so I use the word “belated,” in hopes I still can. May I introduce you to some blogs from around the world?
- From Melbourne, Australia: Craig Harper, Motivational Speaker. Craig is an expert on self-improvement and personal development. Craig calls it “kind of like Craig’s classroom; random thoughts, observations and life lessons. It is an educational and inspirational resource for people who are serious about creating their best life.”
