Entertainment Blogs: World Music - the Music Journey

Do you enjoy world music? So do I. I used to work in our nation's capital, Washington, D.C. There were two music stores within walking distance from my job, and they were a favorite place to spend my one hour for lunch break. Haven't been in D.C. since 1995 and the name of the stores escape me. But I do remember that they both had a wonderful world music section. In Texas, when we used to subscribe to cable TV, there was a show called “Musical Passport” that we watched often. Took you all around the world showcasing great music!
 



Currently, I work from home so I don't get out much to browse the stores anymore. Also, we no longer have cable TV. Sure I could shop online but don't always know who to look for. My significant other combs YouTube and finds all kinds of new artists. But I don't have the patience to do that. I have, however, stumbled across a blog that specializes in introducing its readers to musical artists from around the world: Germany, Greece, Mali, South Africa, Canada, Hungary, France, Caribbean and on and on and on. You can search this site by names of artists, by countries and/or by genres. As of March 2017, it had over 4000 followers. Their posts date back to 2011. The last post is dated December 2015.  They have so much variety, it makes me dizzy. But I love it!! Why don't you visit? If you love world music, you'll love this blog!

To put it in their words:
Join us on our musical adventure on www.xworldmusic.wordpress.com

(Hope they don't change their banner.)

Women of the Bible : Rahab by Eikonik | Found on DeviantArt

Several years ago I wrote a blog post about the harlot/heroine Rahab.  Her story is told in the Bible book of Joshua.  When I published the post I searched diligently for an image depicting her encounter with the Jewish spies sent to spy out the land of Canaan.  (Josh 2: 1-7)  Found an image in the Wikimedia database.  A few years later, after publishing the post, I found an image on DeviantArt by an artist who shares wonderful depictions of events which occurred in ancient Israel - of people and of places.  


The artwork below (following the link and related image to my 2014 blog post) depicts the part of the biblical account where she hid the Jewish spies on her rooftop.  This is a perfect complement to my post previously published here at My Blog Stop! about the woman in the Bible known as Rahab the harlot.

Memorable Battles in Jewish History

SHILOH (not Jerusalem) was at one time the focal point of Israel's worship, where both the Tabernacle and the Ark of the Covenant resided. The Jews took the Ark from Shiloh to Kiriath-Jearim to the battlefield because they thought it would being them victory. They were wrong!

Black Canada: A Brief History | Abagond (Reblog)

Very much enjoy a good history lesson and this was a good one! Thanks Abagond!

Black Canada: A brief history | Abagond


Unlike the Caribbean and America, slavery was never big in Canada. Instead:

Blacks came to Canada in four main waves:

1. Black Loyalists (1780s, 1810s)

2. Underground Railroad (mostly 1840s-1850s)

3. The Lily White Canada Policy (c. 1896-1962)

4. Caribbean immigration (1960s to present)


Blog Publisher's Disclaimer: This post presents an overview of what I know in 500 words or less. I do not pretend to be an expert! I mostly use present-day place names. Corrections welcomed.

If interested in historical fiction Under The Lion's Paw grapples with the subject of slavery; the time and place setting is the 1830's through post-civil war, in both the U.S. and Canada.

Activities You Should Be Aware Can Cause the Elimination of Your Blog

Wake up one day and discover that your blog was deleted?  

Start scratching your head wondering what you did?



The link below is to a post at "We Blog Better".  It makes for a very handy checklist.  Although as I scanned the list, it made me wonder why bloggers would not know this.  However, it is possible that many do NOT realize these activities could get their blog removed.  What I really like is that Guest Blogging and offering free samples of Oreo cookies are NOT on the list.  YAY!  Totally awesome because I have more than one blog and would like to extend an invitation to anyone out there reading this who would be interested. 


Would you be interested in providing a Guest Post for this blog or any of my other blogs? Feel free to contact me via eMail:
cmoneyspinner@gmail.com
SUBJECT: Guest Blog Post
I would be honored!
