Belated Blogday Post

Blogday fell on the 31st of August, 2005, which was also Malaysia's Independence Day. I was in KL and posted up the Blogday message from there and forgot all about it.

It was only today that I suddenly realised that the post was missing. I am not sure what went wrong - maybe I forgot to hit the 'Publish Post' button or something.

Anyway here is the belated Blogday post again.

According to the BlogDay posting instructions, we were supposed to:
1. Find 5 new Blogs that you find interesting
2. Notify the 5 bloggers that you are recommending them as part of BlogDay 2005
3. Write a short description of the Blogs and place a link to the recommended Blogs
4. Post the BlogDay Post (on August 31st) and
5. Add the BlogDay tag using this link: http://technorati.com/tag/BlogDay2005 and a link to the BlogDay web site at http://www.blogday.org

Well as I think it's too late I am only going to follow the rules partly:

So here are the blogs. All of them are personal blogs, but all of them write quite serious stuff from time to time. There's only three. I got bored with the others - mostly teenagers.

1. The Surging Waves

Blog Owner: Avik
Location: Kolkata, India

This guy usually has some short interesting posts, which are thought provoking. In one year he has changed his blog 3 times. By change I don't mean templates. He has started and completely deleted and restarted his blog - 3 times with a new blog name every time. I hope he doesn't change it again.

2. Words of a Broken Mirror

Blog Owner: Kayla Vincent
Location: Bucharest, Romania

She describes herself as: "Always changing and yet the same. Somewhat like a ghost: those who believe in me, cannot see me and those who see me do not believe I actually exist".

It is not everyday that you come across a blogger from Romania who blogs in English. I got to her blog from Avik's. You can also check out the nice pics on her Photo blog: Views of a Broken Mirror

3. Charleston Jenerator
Owner: Jen
Location: Charleston, South Carolina, United States

She has this to say about herself: "I am a navy brat workaholic who has lived in Charleston nearly all my life. I work 40 hrs. a week at a car dealership and a few minimal hours at a local restaurant. I am a data analyst by day and an assistant night manager at night making sure the food's hot on the weekends".

She writes about her life in Charleston and brings up some interesting issues. I find that we share some common issues despite the distance between countries, cultures, etc. One of her recent topics was on teenage pregnancies, an issue often swept under the rug here.

Happy Belated Blogday.
