This month, as an informal resolution, I decided to make a real effort to discover and read blogs from all sorts of different people. Variety is the spice of life, right? One of the best resource to do this is Blogher. For every different voice there seems to be a blog to voice it. If you are a foodie, interested in politics, family issues, photography, health and fitness, really anything, chances are there is a blog for you here. They boast that there are thousands of blogs and lots of opportunity to connect with other people as well as discover new things and ideas.
If you are not sure what you are interested in reading, you can do what I do. I pick at random a blog from the NaBloPoMo section to read. I've found this a great way to discover new writers and perspectives on life that I wouldn't have otherwise found. In fact, many of them I follow regularly and will probably feature here at some point. Some are staff writers at Blogher, but most are regular folk like you and I, just wanting to share a small part of their lives with others. Everyone is interesting and everyone has a story to share.
If you have your own story you'd like to share on Blogher, you can become and member and post there or link to your own blog. Or both, they encourage that. I have found it to be a warm and welcoming community that encourages other writers.
If you follow on Twitter as well, they tweet links to top blog posts. This is a fantastic way to keep connected with discussions and topics that are popular that day.

Of course there is the obligatory Facebook page as well.
