There are a few blogs out there that inspired us to create our blog. Let us take a moment to share them with you all. One that our good friend, Tina, turned us on to is Orangette. This is a highly addictive blog that is extremely well put together. Tina has extremely good taste. Another is Malcolm Gladwell's. He is the author of The Tipping Point, Blink, and my favorite, Outliers. His blog is a treasure house of quirky essays that he has written ranging on a variety of topics--from a correlation between the work ethic of rice farmers and to asians being good at math, to why southerners are generally more quick tempered than most. Extremely fascinating, addictive work. Next is Nick Hornby's, the author of High Fidelity among others. His blog touches on books, music, and the world of art in all forms in general. Lastly, the blog of our good friend, Christina, down in Greenville, South Carolina was an important source of inspiration for starting our blog.
