Late Night Bloghopping 2

I myself didn't expect to end up doing this again.

And yet I am.

I don't know why really.

Well I consider it good karma to help other people's blogs get the notice they deserve anyway. So why not?

And why do I do it late at night??? I'm not sure.

But who cares? Let's get started!

Dan Johnson Photography Blog: A really professional-looking blog that showcases some high-quality paid photos: wedding photos, family photos, baby photos etc. They're mainly a 2-person team, so they may not always be available for any wedding events...

Making It Interesting: The blog's author is a teacher who believes in making teaching and learning interesting for students in many different ways. Perhaps our teachers in Singapore should check this one out? Then we students may get more benefits too!

Life In London: As the name implies, this blog chronicles the life of Lisa and her family staying in London. Plenty of pics to marvel at, especially the more recent ones of them playing in the heavy snow, so much snow that daily services and transportation got temporarily disrupted!

frolic fancy tree: A blog by Melanie Frazier that chronicles her life with her husband Ryan, but also shows her interest in fashion and interior design. Neat photos to look at too. And a clean white blog background instead of some weird distracting background images, which is nice!

The Chatty Housewife: She calls herself by that name on the blog, and her blog posts aren't short on content either. Pretty good quality pictures over there, I've seen some of them on a scenic holiday. Plus, there are food recipes on her blog too!

Prairie Girl Gone Coastal: The ongoing story of Jenne, who married Art and moved from Canada to Washington, and is currently pregnant. See how she adapted to new life in the USA, as well as her transition to motherhood. Pretty background she's used too!

Bleu & Pink: The author Mickaela is married to US soldier Bleu, and they're frequently kept apart due to Bleu having to go to Iraq for long periods of time. They have been coping really well so far in terms of sustaining their relationship and caring for their children, but she doesn't update her blog frequently, so I'm not sure what's happening now... :(

sometimes there are pictures: Actually there's a picture in EVERY post I've seen. Some professional, some simple, some humorous, some random. If you don't like reading a lot of text, you definitely can handle browsing through this blog :P

Lyon Eats: This blog is, as they put it, "A collaborative food resource for Americans in Lyon, France." It posts locations of typical American eateries found in that region, like the KFCs, Starbucks, Pizza Huts, etc, as well as extra things you might want to do there. I guess anybody would find this useful, not just Americans...

read.eat.rinse.repeat.: A blog mostly filled with various food recipes, run by two contributors. Chocolate cake, mashed potatoes, tapioca pudding, spinach dumplings... although I wish they could put pictures of the final product for each recipe, like the next blog...

Simply Spicy: This one has only recipes of spicy Indian dishes. At least this time, you can see the final dish in all its delicious glory, enough to inspire people to learn how to make it! That's how it's supposed to work.

CHONGISM: teh epicness of a malaysian squeezed into this blog. At least that's what I think some might say. Sometimes he puts interesting news articles he found online. I think there were also photos of him visiting Singapore too, which luckily he found was worth the trip. Fortunately he remembered to put watermarks on each photo...

Desperate Chef's Wives: This pretty much sums it up on their blog: "This blog is set up as a place for wives, girlfriends, significant others, and anyone else stuck to a chef to come together and chirp to each other about how to deal with the nonsense that goes along with being the wife of a chef. I was struggling to live with a ghost of a husband who I never saw until I met two other chef wives that literally saved me. It was with that, that I realized there must be more who need love and support too, right? (Hilary Battes, First Lady Desperate Chefs' Wives)"

EARL BUNCH: Sure, this IS another wonderful blog that recounts the events of another family, but have you seen their "Loved Ones" link list? Are they ALL related and they all decided to have blogs for each parent couple??? Or are they just other family blogs they find along the way?

*ATLANTA FOODIES*: As the title suggests, this blog showcases eateries in Atlanta, and posts other content related to Atlanta food, like a New Year Party, or wine tasting event etc. I don't think I'll even set foot in America any time soon, let alone visit Atlanta...


Well! I think 15 is already plenty enough, if I didn't count wrongly. My head may not work right late at night. Maybe I should do this another time, it's kinda interesting to discover what other people put on the web! :)
