Friday 4th November - Wendy Lloyd in for Sandi
GREAT BLOGGING SITES (from our listeners) An interesting green
lifestyle blog. Quirky but interesting site in which people send made up or real secrets about themselves. Surprisingly
popular. A commercial blog but the number one place to go if you have an interest in gadgets and technology. A site about the cool and cutting edge. Interesting blog all about hoaxes. Blog about a lady who is training to become an astronaut. This is what they call vlogging or video blogging. This particular site does a fun daily video log news update.
One of my favourite blogs is "The English Cut" it is the insiders view of a bespoke savile row tailor, it is a good voyeuristic insight into a
profession that I know nothing about :- <>Of course there is then "Boing Boing" "A directory of wonderful things"
<>"The Bosh" a great gossip site <> And "Metafilter" which is a self regulated blog of articles:-
Alkarim Jivani the guest along with The king's Singers (new album called SIX on
signum records)
