I only read two “blogs” regularly on the Internet (That is all I have time for!). They are by Seth Godin and Chris Guillebeau. They are essentially motivational blogs and have absolutely nothing to do with microbiology. However I like reading their articles because they are thought provoking and of good quality. Both authors have a positive outlook on life, are not afraid to look at things a little differently and like to throw traditional thinking out the window.
In life, I guess we all look to connect not only with people who share our passions, but also with those who share our philosophies.
p.s. Only 6 months to Paris; I am like a child waiting for Santa Claus to arrive!
