If you have your own blog, you probably know that you can choose to see all the statistics from the traffic that comes to your website. It’s pretty interesting to look at all the available stuff, like what types of internet searches have led people to your site, or even where in the world the visitors to your site come from. You might even be able to get a personal boost from seeing the total number of visits on any given day.
Looking at the statistics for the number of times people have clicked on links to other blogs on the right of this page, only 3.27 percent of total visits have resulted in someone linking to another blog.
When one of the purposes of this blog is to provide different perspectives on living and working in Malawi (about this blog), I think this statistic represents many missed opportunities of getting a wider range of views.
So I want to bring those opportunities even closer to your finger tips, bring them to your attention, and let you see even more of “what you might be missing”.
These are the links to some of my favourite blog posts from the past year, written by my team members and friends from EWB. These are some of the posts that have most inspired me, or resonated with me, or made me smile, or expanded my own view on things, or been the most original, or were just wonderfully written and/or fun to read. 🙂
Please take the time to check at least 1 or 2 of them out 🙂 and enjoy!

Of course these are only blogs from EWB, there are so many other great blogs and articles out there on development work and experiences abroad. There’s an entire world of other views and perspectives that I encourage you to find. Amazingly without leaving your chair, through a simple internet search. You may even end up noticed as an interesting statistic on someone else’s blog…
