Featured Blog: spiffykerms
Blogs are an interesting thing.Â Sometimes they’re about a specific trend, topic or discussion.Â Other times they’re about nothing at all.Â While spiffykerms falls into that “nothing” category, it’s a delightful and refreshing read every day.
As a personal blog spiffykerms details the thoughts and experiences of it’s author in a way that everyone can enjoy.Â I know nothing of the blog’s author save for what’s on the page, and yet I find everything she writes to be as interesting and entertaining as I would the conversations of a close friend.Â If you want a fun read that’ll shake up your normal routine, make sure to give it a try!
Featured Blog: Glimpse
Run by two moms with a love for Canadian parenting products, Glimpse offers reviews and giveaways on Canadian-made products that will appeal to moms and kids alike.Â Everything from cloth diapers to chemical-free soaps are reviewed.Â It’s a great resource for those of you looking to shop Canadian, and it seems as though there’s almost always a giveaway going on!
A blog featuring Canadian products is a great idea and I’m glad to see that it’s turned out so well.Â My only complaint is that all of the products featured relate to parents and parenting — I’d love to see a companion site that showcased a variety of products that are Canadian made!Â After all – who doesn’t want an Ookpik review?
Featured Blog: TorontoSportsMedia
Let me get something out of the way right off the bat –Â I don’t like sports.Â Sure I’ve been known to enjoy the occasional football game on TV, and every now and then I might even make a trip to Rogers Centre to check out the Jays — but for the most part I just don’t get it.Â The whole “getting into a team and following it all season” bug just never bit me, so it’s surprising how much I enjoyed reading the TorontoSportsMedia blog.
TorontoSportsMedia doesn’t rehash the same sports news that you can read everywhere else — it offers an objective opinion on that news, which is exactly what a blog is supposed to do.Â Even better, they do it with a certain humor and personality that makes their writing instantly likable.
If you’re a fan of Toronto sports (and even if, like me, you’re not) you’re likely to get a big kick out of what TorontoSportsMedia has to offer.
As promised, I’ll start featuring a Canadian blog on SmartCanucks.ca every now and then. I got a lot of emails so sorry I couldn’t reply to each one individually. But if you did email me about your personal Canadian blog rest assured it will be featured on here. I’ll usually pick blogs to feature randomly.
Featured Blog: Joe Girl
Daily observations and inspirations by Joanne T. Lauzon â€” freelance graphic designer and home decor consultant in Ottawa since 1995.
Joe Girl’s blog has a nice mixture of fun “sarcastic, silly or senseless” daily situations and practical tips and tricks on home design and decor. It’s always nice to read personal blog articles about home improvement from home decor professionals!
I noticed Joe’s going through a phase most of us bloggers are very familliar with; Lack of feedback and comments. I fiind that nothing’s more motivating than getting comments and feedback from readers and knowing someone out there reads and cares. I thought it would be nice if we checked out her blog and left comments with ideas and advice on what she can blog about 😀
