international blog day: team ricki's favorite reads
When looking for interesting holidays, significant dates in history, and a variety of obscure celebrations, our trusty printable teacher's calendar comes in handy. Without it, we'd be in the dark when it comes to important dates like International Chocolate Day (9/13), Step Family Day (9/16) and International Blog Day—which happens to be today! In celebration of IBD, Ricki and her team weigh in on their favorite online reads.
Ricki Lake A self-proclaimed "Twitterholic," Ricki is the first to admit she's a wee bit addicted to social media. But while the conversation gets her to log on, it's the content that keeps her engaged. "What I love about Blogher is the element of discovery. I'll log on to check out a story that interests me, then end up getting lost in some amazing blog I've never even heard of. Two minutes later I'm finding my new BFF on Twitter and including even more new friends in the conversation. It's the level of honesty, authenticity and humor I find really addicting."
Team Ricki Jackie loves reading Lisa Belkin and the team at HuffPost Parents. And for honest and raw posts about personal experiences dealing with parenting, relationships and the "ever-relatable world of weight struggles," she says "JoyUnexpected.com is the first place I go."
Team Ricki Mike loves the environmental blogs at Mother Nature Network, as well as posts by Karl Burkart, an Internet entrepreneur who blogs about the latest in green media and technology. Blogs About The Latest In Green Media & Technology.
