While we're in transition over the next weeks, I thought I'd share with y'all some blogs I enjoy that are related to German culture. They're mostly by other expatriates, and I regret that I never got to know these bloggers better. All these years into it, I do regret my lack of a blogroll.
So help me out. I need to know if this is valuable to you or not. I may never figure out how to format my sidebars in some fancy blogroll thing, but I could dedicate an entire page to the blogs that I follow. Would you like to see this? What are your thoughts and feelings about blogrolls?
So let's start with this, in my hope to give readers their fix of "Germanness" in my absence. And if there's any other "German" related bloggers that I've over-looked please speak up in the comments and I'll update the list pronto!
No Ordinary Homestead - Tiffany has a HUGE dog, a sweet little girl and is an amazing gardner. She hosts terrific give-aways and has a great site.
Fiona Gray - has a great blog, and is a hilarious writer. I love her posts. Not only is this woman raising two kids and blogging, she also just so happens to be an amazing artist. Check out her awesome Facebook page!
Skytimes - site is sometimes sad because she's grieving the loss of her child. Yet she manages to post brave, raw thoughts and I really enjoy her creations and mail art! Skytimes is the only blogger I've ever met in "real life" and I"ll have to share some shots and laughs from our wonderful visit soon!
The Artist in Me - Anke IS a German! Woot woot! She posts a lot of photos. Enjoy her lovely images to make you smile!
Resident on Earth is an awesome writer who uses beautiful photography to illustrate her posts. She already works in Germany and shares her experiences through her posts.
Frau Dietz - writes a hilarious blog, and once I'm pretty sure she got a care package with OPI nail polish. I was so excited about it, I feel like I actually know her despite the fact that I don't.
German Gems - writes short, sweet and funny posts. I think she's having computer troubles but keep an eye out for her because she's a great gal.
Click Clack Gorilla - is a fascinating site with lots of posts about dumpster diving of all things!
So my friends... I think I've covered a bit of everything here. It would mean so much to me in the next weeks if you could take the time to go visit some of these sites and see how great they are for yourself.
As for the artwork above, it's a sneak peek at what I've been up to in the last weeks while packing the studio. I promise I have a lot of photos to share soon, I've cranked out an amazing amount of work that I'm really excited to share once my living situation is stable enough to be on the computer regularily. For now, don't lose touch and most importantly, keep on creating!!! xxx tj
PS- I've been having email problems for awhile now. Send smoke signals or post on my FB wall if it's important.
