Summer Blog Reading List: Week Two

Book Bag Week TwoThis week’s top 3 blog picks include:



Title of the Blog: Vox by Ezra Klein

BBM Employee: Jennifer Oddo

Summary/Why Recommending:

“Vox  is my go-to blog when I need to understand what’s going on in the world. It explains the news in simple terms and they cover real issues – world news, politics and sometimes even some fun stuff. I discovered this blog in an article I read in the New York Times (How fitting… I love reading the news I guess). I generally read this blog every day. Except for the weekends, those days you can find me drinking. Anywho, I love this blog. ”


Title of the Blog: Zen Habits by Leo Babauta

BBM Employee: Phu Xuan Le

Summary/Why Recommending:

“Zen Habits is about finding simplicity in the daily chaos of our lives. It’s about clearing the clutter so we can focus on what’s important, create something amazing, and find happiness. Zen Habits takes things in life that cause people stress (from personal events to professional situations) and helps people rethink the situation and remember to breathe, where they would otherwise feel like they’re drowning. It’s a great source for serenity. I came across this blog through a friend who visited the site regularly. He thought I could relate to a lot of the posts in this blog. And he was right. For instance, my favorite post is Email Sanity – This post outlines the stress that a full inbox can give you and how to regain control of your emails. Speaking of… back to those emails!”


Title of the Blog: FN Dish by Food Network

BBM Employee: Alice Yeo

Summary/Why Recommending:

“This awesome culinary blog encompasses stories from Food Network chefs, recommended recipes, and culinary happenings. I feel it’s entertaining and informative for somebody who enjoys one of life’s greatest pleasures – FOOD! Appeasing the User Experience Manager inside of me, this blog interacts seamlessly with the main website. The only difference is the URL! My favorite post would have to be the recipes posted by Ina Garten from Barefoot Contessa. Go enjoy!”
