Re-Blog April 2010

May 3, 2010

The month of May is upon us, but before April becomes a distant memory I wanted to share some interesting blogs, websites and blog posts from the past month that caught my attention:

SnagFilms – As a lover of documentary films, I enjoyed stumbling upon this site.  On my first visit, I saw a preview for Fantasyland, a documentary about obsessed fantasy baseball fans.  While I do play fantasy baseball (and I’m currently in third place in my league), I don’t think I’m obsessed.  Or am I?  I was also intrigued by a documentary about, of all things, The F Word.  If you’re interested in documentary films, you must check out this website dedicated to providing free streaming full-length documentaries.  Also worth noting is the site’s interactive MovieMatcher, which allows you to choose a documentary to watch based on various topics and subjects.  Very cool stuff.

Why Job Hoppers Make the Best Employees, a great article by Penelope Trunk.  As someone who has been accused of changing jobs too often, I could strongly identify with this article.

Quid Pro Quo (Santa Math), a thought-provoking post about the return on your blogging investment by Seth Godin.  Many of us, as bloggers, want to make a living through blogging.  But Seth Godin argues that successful and happy bloggers don’t necessarily make a lot of money.

Guacamole recipe – with Cinco de Mayo just a mere days away, this recipe provided by Rick Bayless is a perfect way to celebrate the season.  As much as I love cooking Mexican food, I haven’t had much success making a good batch of guac.  I hope RB’s recipe changes that.  If you know of any secrets to make great guacamole, I’d love to hear about them.

Blogussion – Most of us are aware of Problogger and Copyblogger, but I recently stumbled up this interesting site about blogging, which is run by a group of teens and twenty-somethings.  Whether you’re new to blogging or not, it’s good to get another perspective about blogging and building community.

The Past DOES Equal the Future – Steve Pavlina wrote a great post about how important our habits are in determining success.  This thought-provoking post might cause you to rethink how you spend your time and what you want out of life.

Why I No Longer Do Real Time Trip Updates – Tim Sanders provides some great insights about why he guards his privacy a little bit more these days.  I must say that I agree with a lot of what he says and where he’s coming from.

That’s it for now…how about you, have you discovered any great sites or posts in April?
