The best blog writing immerses the reader in day-to-day sights and sounds of the writer's life. Done well, it's a personal view of life with an immediacy that can't be matched by a book or magazine article. In effect, it's a whole new kind of journalism.
Some samples of the choices:
Sacred Destinations approaches travel from a spiritual perspective. The writer has an advanced degree in religious history and focuses on travel destinations with religious appeal.
Girl Solo in Arabia--Carolin McIntyre has spent over 30 years exploring and learning about Asia. Herein her adventures in the Near East.
My Marrakesh is my personal favorite. She presents all the ups and downs of an American ex-pat family living in Morocco. The writer has a deep interest in textile and adornment and frequently focuses on lifestyle issues.
