Last week I dug through the entries in the Blog Registry and chose five female bloggers to showcase for my New (and not so new) Blogs of the Week.

Not wanting to show preferential treatment, today is the guys turn.

In no particular order,

Matthew Dryden describes his blog this way:

Name: Matthew Dryden (a writer-father from Ontario, Canada)
Blog: “Matthew Dryden”
Subject: My struggles as a practicing writer mixed with some neurosis, stream-of-conscious thought, and imagined conversations with other bloggers
What to expect: About 1500 word entries Monday to Friday that concern themselves with my writing, my muse, and other parts of my life.

Albert of Urban Monk shared this:

My name is Albert, from Australia. A mature age psychology student and really into spirituality. I run UrbanMonk.Net which is practical personal-development from both those perspectives.

“The site has been reported by readers to have made a drastic change in their inner lives. It has helped many find love, gratitude, and compassion. For others, the site has helped with everything from everyday frustrations and troubles to stronger symptoms like depression and anxiety.”

Kevin Sandridge, author of the Florida Mortgage Blog describes his blog as,

My name is Kevin Sandridge. I write a Florida mortgage and related news blog from Winter Haven, FL. The world of home finance is so crazy these days, and my goal is to provide insights into how folks can navigate it safely.

Most importantly, I try to provide concrete examples and put things into terms that most folks can easily understand. I’ve even been known to include references from the movie Caddyshack!

Craig Maltby of Balanced Immune Health wrote,

This site is all about staying health through immune balance. Taking steps to make your immune response not too aggressive or not too passive.

An person’s immune system that is out of whack can lead to a lot of chronic conditions that makes quality of life suck. Allergies, joint inflammation, greater cold/flu susceptibility, stress related illness (stress really messes with your immune system).

I’ve got a lot of science referenced on the blog, but I try to keep it readable and personable, even a bit humorous, though I’m no Will Rogers.

And, last but not least is Netra ofThe Journey Within who shares,

I am Netra current residing in Japan and post under the title name ’sumiran’ means: to live in the remembering of own true self. I am new blogger just started few months back.
The name of my blog is ‘ The Journey Within’. It is dedicated to all seekers in the odyssey to themselves. Through the blog, I seek and share passion, inspiration, understanding and positive energy for the collective growth under diverse topic. I love to taste all the sweet flavor of spirituality; from Zen to sufi, Vipassana to yoga… like a bee collect the honey from different flowers..hehe..
Wish to see you there too!

So there you have it. Five more great blogs to visit, read and subscribe to.

Happy Clicking! Happy Blogging!

    Hi Barbara,

    Nice sites all. Some are a bit too introspective for me, but good writing skills. Vivid imaginations too. Matthew Dryden from Ontario really and badly needs to put all his stuff into a book. He’s writing stuff on the blog which one usually reads in books. 🙂
