The Official Personal Growth Resource Roundup #1

In case you hadn’t noticed, there is an incredible abundance of amazing personal growth material available on the web. And since I certainly don’t claim to have all the answers – in fact I find many of my own answers online – I’m going to do my best to post a (mostly) regular list of outstanding Personal Growth resources that I have found around the blogosphere and beyond.

And this is the first “official” roundup of Personal Growth Resources.

Let’s begin this week’s list with the Blog Carnivals that have featured an entry from Evolving Times.

The Abundance Thinking Carnival at Abundance Highway included my interview with Mark Joyner on the Law of Attraction.

The 14th Carnival of Creative Growth posted at Energies of Creation and the Made to Be Great Personal Development Carnival at Made to Be Great, both included my article, 51 Ways to Expand Your Comfort Zone.

Next, I feel extremely honored to have been added to the SOB list (Simply Outstanding Bloggers) by the totally awesome Liz Strauss. If you haven’t “met” Liz yet, you need to get over there right now!

Shama Hyder, who seems to have taken a bit of a sabbatacal from the blogosphere, has reemerged with a wonderful business blog at After the Launch.

And if you haven’t been watching the amazing changes happening over at Wendy Piersall’s blogging empire 😉 you definitely need to check it out! Dad Balance – the new emoms channel for the other half of the traditional parenting pair has launched and already has a ton of great articles aimed at helping dads find a positive work/life balance. Check out this recent guest post from Chris Garret on The Pros and Cons of Being a Work at Home Dad.

Then there are the memes that I have been tagged with and have not yet responded to. Many of these are truly valuable topics, and my delay in responding in no way reflects the value they bring to the blogosphere. If you’re the original memester, know that I’ve got you on my list and will do my best to respond. But I make no guarantees. 😉

I’ve still got Gleb’s question, What is Personal Development on my mind.

Aaron and Alex have both tagged me with the What Gives You Courage meme started by Lorraine Cohen at Powerfull Living.

Lola Fayemi started an interesting meme and tagged me with The Good Side of the Limited Mind.

Internet Marketing Mind and Dana Walert tagged me with a call to promote this fundraising event for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society.

If you haven’t been tagged yet, and would like to participate in any of these worthy memes, consider yourselves tagged!

And speaking of Memes, I’ll be posting the roundup from the What Would You Do with an Extra 36 Hours Meme at the end of next week. So if you’d like to participate and be included in the roundup, get your post up soon.

That’s it for this week. Enjoy these great resources and watch for more next week.

        Congratulations on being named a Simply Outstanding Blogger.

        So what is a meme?

        Thanks for the mention of Dad Balance and the recent guest post from Chris Garrett!

        It is certainly an exciting time for me as I work with Wendy on developing a site with a focus on dads trying to find their balance. Thanks for the feedback and for taking the time to stop by Dad Balance!

        Hi Lego Mom. Thank you!

        Here’s the wikipedia definition of meme:

        A meme, (IPA: /mi:m/) as defined within memetic theory, comprises a theoretical unit of cultural information, the building block of cultural evolution or diffusion that propagates from one mind to another analogously to the way in which a gene propagates from one organism to another as a unit of genetic information and of biological evolution.[1] Multiple memes may propagate as cooperative groups called memeplexes (meme complexes).

        In the blogosphere, the term meme has come to represent any idea that spreads in a somewhat “viral” sense to other blogs. This can include posts that are specifically designed to propagate group participation such as group writing projects or questions such as this one as well as ideas that “catch on” in a more organic manner.

        Hope this helps.
