Addis All Around

>> Friday, July 29, 2011

Dawit Yoseph has become a good friend of mine. He is a single guy with a daughter who lives in Virginia. His passion is for his culture and he is always welcoming to those interested in his beloved Ethiopia. He started Addis All Around after witnessing the lack of information for visitors to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Today his news site is flourishing and he is swamped with the pouring in of medical, political and arts media information.

The website's blog features a new book release by Anne Marie Ruff called, "Through these Veins":

"Through These Veins weaves together the dramatically different worlds of traditional healing, U.S. government funded AIDS research, and the pharmaceutical industry in an intensely personal, fast-paced tale of scientific intrigue with both devastating and hopeful effect."

Dawit is the type of person that's loyal to his work, his culture and friends. He is always willing to give a helping hand which is a rare find these days. I love his passion and respect his view of education through an informative media source. If you're looking for live theater, sports updates, great resturants or to simply learn Amharic (one of the primary Ethiopian langauges), vist Addis All Around.


The Songstress

>> Sunday, July 17, 2011

This is my dear friend and ex-cowoker Tessa Souter-The Songstress. Tessa is the person responsible for introducing me to blogging. It all started here at LEA with her English accent "Da-ling you should totally have a blog. Here take a look." And that's how it all started. Tessa's blog is all about her travels throughout the US and abroad as a jazz vocalist. She is a big hit from New York to Russia. Even other people are making You Tube videos by singing the words to her songs, which by the way, this one is my favorite so far: You don't Have to Believe. I went to see her performance at the Blue Note in New York and it was fabulous.

She has since merged her blog and website into one and you can see it here. To see her perform or get her latest CD go to Tessa Souter. She is not just a great singer but a mother and amazing writer who has written for ELLE and Vogue Magazines. She also has her own book which was the title of her blog: Anything I Can Do You Can Do Better. She is a genuinely sweet and a person who takes care of others. Now she is enjoying her craft and sharing it with the rest of the world. I am proud of her. Tessa Souter is definitely a must see.

The Relationship Photographer

>> Monday, July 11, 2011

This post is my next in the series on bloggers who are my very good friends. I wanted to highlight their work as they are all diverse in the content of their focus as well as dynamic in their expertise. Today I am presenting Tonya who is dear friend and enjoys capturing intimate moments of children and couples. I like to call her "Le Photographer de Relations". She is really good at capturing those tender moments.

She has two other sites of interests for her Zazzle store, where you can purchase beautiful cards and other cool nick nacks. Her other site is as a free lanced photographer and you can view her site here. For all of Tonya's amazing work you can click here: Tonya's site.

Tonya is a very warm and caring person who by nature is fun loving, and enjoys life. She sees the world through a creativity that goes beyond most and you can see her gift of viewing the world through her photography lens. Thanks Tonya for your friendship. You are really an amazing person and true artist.

NetSecurity Corporation

>> Friday, July 01, 2011

Today's post continues my presentation on websites owned by my good friends. Inno Eroraha is the Founder and Chief Strategist for NetSecurity Corporation. He has grown his company to a state of the art professional service featuring Cyber Security, Forensics and hands on, quality Training & Consulting.

His blog "Cyber View Points" has relative and informative security tips when visiting social media sites and online shopping centers; useful to us bloggers and mommy/wives who enjoy networking and "dolling up" our wardrobes. Here's a quote from his blog site:

"After much contemplations, I've decided to start writing about things that are thought provoking and offer alternate view points on cyber-related matters. I will try to use this blog -- Cyber View Points -- to dig deep into issues that are not often talked about in any medium -- print or online."

*I can't wait to see what he will post next.
