What are Other Bloggers Talking About?

Do you take time every day to appreciate the simple things in life? The blog 1000 Awesome Things shows just this. Counting down from 1000, this blog post a new entry every weekday talking about the simple things in everyday life that just make us happy. This blog talks about things as simple as when the hold music is actually good to things as complex as when you sneeze and fart at the same time so nobody notices the fart.This blog shows the reader that there are at least 1000 things in life that will make you happy, without you having to really do anything out of the ordinary.

I chose this blog because for however simple it is, it has the potential to make life awesome. It is important to see the simple things in life that just make us happy; these things all have the power to make a bad day a good one and to completely change your mood for the better.The most prominent thing that I notice about this blog that makes it work well is that the way it  is written grabs the readers attention by using scenarios that are easy for the reader to relate to. One thing that i would change about the blog is that some of the entries are just a title and a picture; It would be nice to see some more explanation on it.


Imagine fighting for your country, but having to hide who you love for fear that your entire life will be torn out from under you. The blog entry On Marines, equality and my date to the Marine Corps Birthday Ball, from the blog Work  in Progress, talks about the life of a gay Marine before and after the repeal of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. The author talks about his experiences as an advocate for the repeal of DADT and having to go under a false name to avoid being discharged.

I chose this blog because the topic interested me and I expected a heart worming blog; this blog turned out to be that and much more. This blog is interesting because it is the first time I have heard a story form a gay soldier after the repeal of DADT. The main thing about this blog that works well for this blog is that there is nothing flashy about it and it just tells a story. From this blog I would like to take the idea of my blog being a journal and talk about my own experiences.  There is nothing I would change about this blog because there is not much to it, it is simple and meant to express the joys and hardships of this change.
