Blogging Fever Rises

Blogging has become a past time for many business professionals, students, computer hobbyists, news junkies and the list goes on. I obviously enjoy it because I'm maintaining two blogs myself. 

Another activity that I would have to rate as one of my top five is to walk through bookstores (old or new, modern or flea market, any and all bookstores) and spend hours at a time looking through the book shelves of every genre. And, of course spending way too much time in the magazine and periodicals section. 

This past week I came across a magazine called Artful Blogging - a magazine dedicated to "Visually Inspiring Online Journals". 

The cover was artfully set and colorfully eye catching.  The entire magazine had pictures and descriptions of blog sites maintained by those who are artful and creative. 

For example, www.kellyinkstudio.blogspot.com is written by a nature photographer. A jewelry designer maintains a site at www.speckled-egg.blogspot.com. 

The magazine reviews blogs that are just fun to explore and to learn how creative minds work and play. Check out the magazine or google artful blogs then visit the blogs listed. Leave comments on what you think of their journals and support fellow bloggers as well as keeping art alive.

A Bestseller's List from Success Magazine

The April 2016 issue of "Success" magazine has an interesting bestseller's list  in the back. The list has 10 bestselling business books. The magazine notes "Success analyzes a combination of sales data acquired from Nielsen BookScan-which gathers point-of-sale data from more than 16,000 locations across the U.S.-and from a variety of independently verified sources within the personal development industry."

The list is compiled from sales from Jan. 4 to Jan. 31, 2016. What's interesting is that there are at least two books on the list that where first published decades ago. See if you know which ones. Here's the the 10 books with author names that were listed.


1. StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath (Gallup Press)

2. The 5 Love Languages: The Secret to Love that Lasts by Gary Chapman (Northfield Publishing)

3. How to Win Friends and Influence People by Dale Carnegie (Pocket Books)

4. Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges by Amy Cudd…

This has been a very busy summer for writing assignments. Unfortunately I’ve made very few blog entries over the past several months. I vow to get better and start posting more regularly. For now, here are a few links that will take you to a few recent book reviews on Blogcritics.
