Bloggers for positive global change

Having been tagged earlier by Farm Mom as a blogger for positive global change I know that I am supposed to nominate 5 other bloggers and spread the love around. My dillema is that I have little time to get out and about to a lot of other blogs, and of the one's that I do go to a couple have been tagged already; Crunchy Chicken, Rhonda at Down-to-earth, Homesteading Neophyte... But never fear I have some great blogs to share, and these guys are by no means the second stringers!

http://williamkamkwamba.typepad.com/ This is a young man in Malawi who, despite his circumstances, and challenges has educated himself and built himself a wind turbine from scrap parts and spare wood. He is powering his and his parents home and helping his villiage to become powered also. He is inspiring in his faith and optimism.
http://notsobigliving.blogspot.com/ Anne and I are a little ways off on our politics, but we both quoted Henry David Thoureau in the same week so we can't be that far off on the big stuff. :-) She's a great blogger and very thoureau, err rather thorough with her facts. Check out her utility report cards.
http://aprildphillips.blogspot.com/ I just love to read April's blog. I laugh out loud sometimes, and always love to read her accounts of fun with her family, or crashing go-carts. Her family and her living more sustainably, and putting priorities where they ought to be.
http://www.pocketfarm.com/ I love to read Liz's post about her life on her "Pocket farm." Food, farming, eating locally, and making sustainable choices are what it's all about. She is the type of person leading us to a new type of living.
http://www.deandi.com/adventure/ This was one of the first blogs that I started to read. Dean and Andi are a couple that are in love and moving together towards their goal of self sufficiency. They've had some speed bumps and have had to change some things but the reason I keep coming back is their positive outlook and obvious love for each other.

A common thread within all of these blogs is that they all focus on the positive that we have in life, and the things that can be done. This is why I gravitate to them, and why I share them here. I hope you read them, and enjoy them as I have.

Aw, thanks for the recognition P~! I don't read many blogs, but I can think of one that is definitely worth passing the award on to. Cheers! :)
