A Recap of the Facts
On Monday, February 26, I started a quest to find 200 Unique Blogs. . . . I said that the blogs I am looking for
are one-of-a kind, stand-out, nothing-like-it, wow-will-you-look-at-that. only-one, wish-I-had-that-idea blogs. Every blog in the bunch will be outstanding in its own way.
Then I restated the definition:
A unique and outstanding blog is one so compelling and remarkable that it sticks with you — days later you still want to tell folks to experience it. A unique and outstaninding blog has an amazing impact on a reader. It is unforgettable to both the adult and the kid in you.
Remember John Said This Would Be Interesting
I still think he was talking about the fun and intrigue observing blogger behavior cross paths with . . . um, er . . . me.
And well, so far it has been.
You see I’m starting to wonder whether our “one size fits all sitcom world” has made us immune to what “unique” really means. I looked it up to be sure I had it right. Merriam Webster and I agree.
- 1 : being the only one : SOLE
- 2 a : being without a like or equal : UNEQUALED
- 3 : UNUSUAL
Maybe I have a special bond with this word that means peculiar. Could be.
A few more Outstanding Blogs
The first list was 15 in no particular order. Now here are a few more. This is taking a long time. That seems like it should be.
- Hello My Name Is Blog
- Oh, The Joys
- Sand in the Gears
- Kim and Jason EscapeAdulthood
- Chief Happiness Officer
- My Marrakesh
- the ageless project
- Tomorrow Could Be Boring
- Onemanbandwidth: An American Professor in China
I’ve only two things left to say:
I’m still looking . . . are you still looking with me?
Not all unique and outstanding blogs come from North America . . .
