Learning From BlogsWritten by Lisa Renee Ward | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Blogs can be used for many reasons, entertainment, venting and as a resource just to name a few. This week we take a look at some blogs that provide information that we could learn from.
Starting with Cap City Savvy, I would love to see our area have a blog about our downtown like Columbus has with this blog. It’s written with the focus on being the “Columbus Guide to all things Urban” which is done in an excellent manner as well as providing neat sites like Urban Drinks where perhaps someday Toledo will have a listing as well.
Have you ever wondered what being a nun would be like or wanted to learn more about the sisterhood? You can learn quite a bit from Sr. Marilyn Marie Ellerbrock through the vocations blog on the Toledo Catholic Diocese website. This blog can be a source of inspiration, especially with some of the quotes and thoughts that are shared.
The Urban Ohio is mainly a resource site on all parts of Ohio’s urban areas, including Toledo. It does have a forum though that gives people a chance to discuss everything from art to politics here in Ohio.
Our Erie Street Market could perhaps benefit from a website that provided as much information as North Market in Columbus. It’s an amazing collection of stores and information on the stores that gives people a reason to want to head down there to shop.
History abounds on blogs, where you can find sites like American Presidents which was created by Michael Lorenzen, a professor of history at Central Michigan University. The excellent information and photo on President Lincoln’s stovepipe hat is enough of a reason to visit, and you’ll find more once you get there.
Using your favorite search engine discovering blogs on a topic that interests you is quick and easy and chances are you’ll find many blogs of interest that will not only entertain you but also provide some great reference material.
