Email Overloaded

Email Overloaded — a simple title for a blog that offers straightforward solutions to a problem that keeps a lot of people from being productive. And no, we’re not talking about those of you with the solitaire and minesweeper addictions.  We’re talking about the people with the sixty zillion unread emails.

Email Overloaded is written by a guy who’s been an IT manager for 15 years — long enough to have some great ideas about how to be more productive by managing your massive amounts of incoming mail. He’s also got other productivity tips, and that makes him a blogger well worth checking out.

Tim The Foolman

A Fool and His Words Are Soon Parted

Tim, the author of A Fool and His Words Are Soon Parted, isn’t foolish. Like most court jesters, he just tells it like he sees it. Turns out, he has wise and interesting things to say about technology, parenting, books, and, my favorite, career limiting moments (CLMs).

(Saturday morning blogroll found Tim while scrolling through tags for “vacation.” Turns out, there’s a lot more to Tim than just that.)

Awareness and Consciousness

The Awareness and Consciousness blog, by Kavit, is a website devoted to talking about being aware and conscious. Yeah I know, pretty straight forward, but he's also a life coach and does an interview with an actual person. Cool!

Introducing Saturday Morning Blogroll

The ground rules for Saturday Morning Blogroll are pretty simple: I’ll spend half an hour every Saturday morning on a “next blog” browse, and see what I find. Some Saturdays, I’ll spend that half an hour looking through tags to see what people are thinking about, say, Life, or Buttons, or School. (I know, there’s no tag for the Button-obsessive blogger, not yet anyway.) On Saturday, then, the search tool for locating best blogs will be, basically, serendipity. The rest of the week, the fine editors at Best Blog will continue to adhere to the highest of standards and the most finely honed of methods. Which is to say, I have no idea how they go about this.

As for my own standards, like all of us, I’m a sucker for good writing, for pictures of food and far away places, and for distinct voices, so that’s the kind of thing you’re likely to find here any given Saturday. There’s so much talent in this community that it would be a sad Saturday if I couldn’t find at least two Best Blogs in half an hour.

Without further ado, this is what I found when I woke up and began to click on the “next blog” button:

distraction no. 99. For every writer out there who’s working on getting something published and hasn’t yet broken through, this woman articulates what that feels like — mostly, it seems to involve finding creative ways to handle rejection. (For now anyway. I’m guessing she’ll find an agent one of these days, as long as she doesn’t move to L.A.) There’s lovely writing here, particularly about New York City. It was just her birthday. Check out her site and wish her a happy day.

Deskbound. Deskbound’s post, Everything’s Lovely in all its Lovely Gloriousness (May 22, 2006) is a masterpiece, something I will commit to memory and repeat every Monday morning on my way in to work. The voice of this blog is so wonderfully pissed off and the captions of some of the photos are so funny, that he deserves a really wide audience, people who read him because he’s good, rather than because they are searching for blogs that feature the words “poo” and “incest.” I can think of a number of people who would be offended by this blog, so up front I warn you that he makes fun of, in no particular order: the pope, incest, defecation, Charlie Sheen, and members of the Bush administration, including the head guy himself. There is a very funny post about members of the Bush administration who wear moustaches. Deskbound also makes fun of his colleagues, his workplace, and the world. I’m sorry he’s deskbound, but we’re lucky this is how he’s chosen to exact his revenge.

See you next Saturday.

Metropolitan Philadelphia Real Estate

I'm almost certain that this person knows what he's/she's talking about.  I don't know, there isn't much information on the site about the author.  Philadelphia Real Estate has a lot of information on buying real estate.  And plus the author of this blog has been at it since 2003!  I think it's worth a look.

e-recrutement et marché du travail

Yannick Fondeur is a French economist at the Institut de Recherches Economiques et Sociales.

On e-recrutement et marché du travail, his wordpress blog, Yannick talks about the use of internet and new technologies in the recruiting process, and their impact on the job market.

Although written in French, this highly subject-oriented blog might interest non-French readers: his last post focuses on the America’s Job Bank to be closed the June 30, 2007.

April 9: We welcome Sur l’emploi et le marché du travail, Yannick’s second blog which migrates on WordPress. It’s written by Yannick and his workmate Carole Tuchzirer, and, well, it’s also focused on work and the job market as its title says.
