Elle Effect

I have been sitting on reporting this best blog for a little while now (work, school, and such has kept me distracted) but now it is time to let it out of the box.

About a week and a half ago I was browsing around the tag surfer when I (happily) stumbled across Elle Effect. Lauren, the author, is an eighteen year old artist who not only gives us a glimpse into her artistic works but also into the thoughts and situations of her daily life.

What I quickly discoved is that this young girl possesses a mind able to delve into the deeper end of life through both the visual arts as well as the written word.

All this is why I consider Elle Effect a best blog.

Joni Ruhs

In light of it being the day commonly known as Christmas Eve I thought it would be appropriate to bring you a family oriented best blog. So in that spirit I am happy to present to you Joni Ruhs.

Joni is a stay-at-home mom who has, as she puts it, “lots of thoughts on lots of things.” This, thankfully, is something that works to our benefit for Joni manages to blog away the daily trials and joys of family life (as well as her own personal thoughts) with more than sufficient humor, candor, and insight. One of my own personal favorites was Joni’s musings on the issue of teaching Santa to children.

So to satisfy the family-oriented part of all of us I would encourage checking out Joni Ruhs, yet another honoree in our December Blog a day.

Still Learning Dad

Still Learning Dad is the personal blog of Shane Arthur, a college ministry worker at ODU. Just a quick overview of the site will give you the impression that this author is a bookworm with a full and active outside life.

Still Learning Dad is striking in its balanced approach to the author’s life. While this blog is not at all lacking in spiritual and personal insight the author also takes the time to write on those small events that make life full. With a conversational and personable tone Shane manages to blend the insightful with the daily in a way that breaks down the divide between the two.

Teach Me Dad

Teach Me Dad, is a pretty new blog. It’s a series of meditations inspired by passages from the Bible. The author seems like a pretty humble and compassionate guy who wants to live a better life. And he’s working hard figuring out how to do that. A fine blog and one we hope lasts a long time.

(With thanks to Best Blog reader, Bonnie, who suggested we look for a blogger who talks about matters of faith.)
