Is there a blogger in your life that needs
a life some blogging accessories? As it is my birthday in under a month, I thought I’d pull together a list of great birthday presents for bloggers.
I’ve separated it up into three price ranges, starting at the cheapest, (under $25, through to over $100), so there should be something for everyone!
Great Blogger Presents – $25 and Under
Books make great presents, and most of them are under $25, so that’s what we’ll start with. As an added bonus, perhaps your blogger may turn off the computer while reading, miracles can happen! Click the photos to find out more.
If you live in the US, and meet all the rules and regulations, get in and submit your ideas for what you would do with 36 extra hours per week.
The Name Tag Guy is a marketing and business blogwriter that I’ve been watching for a few months now. Watch the video below to see what makes Scott unique…
About halfway through the interview Scott mentions ways that he motivates himself. He has a whiteboard with all sorts of quotes and ideas on it.
What Did You Write Today
Its a good one for most of us, even those who aren’t trying to push out their fourth bestseller by April. What seemed like a really stupid idea to his friends at first is now his job and he does it well. A lot can be said about starting up a company with the backing of your friends, in fact most startup companies are set up by friends or like minded people. But Scott, as always is the exception to the rule.

Today I found an interesting summary review of the recently released book – Heat: How to Stop the Planet From Burning – about which David Suzuki said:
The review /summary I found is split over two good length posts by David Pollard and gives a good taste for where the author is going with his argument, from the first post…
I’ve recently discussed with the editors of this book and website to be included/invited on the list of Canadian blog authors on Worldchanging.com, (in light of our upcoming move to Canada), and once again, I’d like to give a shout-out to their recently release book, (#18 on Amazon.com today!)…
Check out the reviews on Amazon.com – Worldchanging: A User’s Guide for the 21st Century – 5 stars!
From time to time I come across reviews or press releases of great books. Here are two that have made it onto my wishlist.
The guys from Worldchanging.com have released their book, and it looks great, you can get it from amazon, click on the image to the right to buy it. At the moment, it is about 40% off the retail price, so if you are interested in that sort of thing, get it now!
Today we made the second step in our commitment to building our first earth covered home. The first was a couple of years ago when we purchased the Australian Earth Covered Buildings book by Sydney Baggs, which after reading much US and European information on the web, gave an excellent Australian perspective of the types and forms of construction, and from their experience as Australia’s preeminent earth covered homes architects, give a great insight into the technology and its benefits in the Australian Climate. I would provide a link to Amazon, but when there is one available at $150 US, I think the provided link to the author’s website will set you in better stead.
Today we purchased another book, this time The $50 & Up Underground House by Mike Oehler which gets great reviews. We’ll blog a review of the book as we work through it, and probably provide some online sketches as our design ideas develop.
