Over the next few weeks you’ll see some changes on Global from Home. Now that the blog has been up and running for 6 months(yay!), I’m planning to do a bit of reorganizing to make it a little easier to find ways to explore culture from your front door. Here are the new categories you can expect to see pop up soon:
- Abroad Blogs of the Week – ABOW is definitely my favorite post I write each week so this one will be staying. However, I am hoping to get more recommendations for blogs to highlight. Nominate a blog today by clicking here.
- Cultural Crafting – find posts on decorating your house, unique ways to use your photos, and plenty of craft ideas with an international theme.
- Doing Global Good – this will be the home for a new series coming up called Global Giving, as well as posts highlighting do-gooders around the globe.
- Ethnic and Tasty – this category will also be staying. Check here for recipes, restaurants, and foodie penpal posts.
- Foreignly Entertaining – from You Tube to books to movies and any other entertaining tidbits on culture I can find, this is where to look.
- iGlobal – with so many great tools on the web, this new category will put all of the ones I’ve found in one place.
- International Neighbors – this category will include my stories and tips on meeting people from around the world in your own hometown.
- Study Abroad and Beyond– as a study abroad advisor, I have lots to say on studying overseas. Check here for info on how to get a job in international education and other great info on studying, working, or volunteering abroad.
- Worldly Events – finds posts on international holidays, festivals, and other fun events with a global theme.
Have other ideas to be global from home? I’d love to hear them!
