Blogging has connected the world in a way that hasn't been achieved by newspapers, films or even television. Transglobe blog is all about sharing those connections. Our aim is to have at least one post, and up to five, from every country in the world, all with a common theme "A day in my life."
Please join this new blogging community to read about each person's day - you can do so via RSS or by email, just use the form to your left.
You may think the daily life of someone in your own country isn't interesting, but it will be to people from other parts of the world. In time it will be fascinating to compare the daily lives of a mogul from Manhattan with a sheep farmer from Cyprus!
Once the project is complete it will be an amazing snapshot of life on our planet in the early 21st century!
Please also submit a post from your country, together with one photograph - it can be of you, or of your country. The post can be as short or as long as you like, but please also write a short bio about yourself and include a link to your own blog. Please submit all posts to email@example.com
Amongst being a "do-er of many things", Bonita Vos is a quirky web/graphic designer, animal lover and dancing enthusiast.
I am a quirky, mildly eccentric web & graphic designer, living the bustling city life in Gauteng, South Africa, in the city of Centurion. My daily commute consists of an approximate 30 minutes' drive to Johannesburg, our own city of lights.
As much as I love the city, I like to get out of it as often as possible. Luckily, from Centurion, it's only a short drive out to get in touch with anything from an expansive dam, to a lion park, to a mountainous walking trail, or even something as simple as a petting zoo, where wild cats are waiting to play.
My life is shared with my fiancé, his cat, and my rats.
Matt Shealy is a writer and blogger who works from home.
A typical day starts at 6 am with a blur of two toddlers, strong coffee and breakfast.
I find myself in front of my computer promptly at 8am for an onslaught of email communications that keep my renters insurance website ticking. I will usually get some design mockups from my designer. Reviewing them and providing feedback/modifications keeps me busy until about 10:30am. I love this part of my day because it is so challenging for me. I am not a web design expert but I have trained myself to know what looks good and will provide a good user experience.
Carol Byrne is an English teacher and writer.
Hola! I'm Carol and I am Irish, and for the past 5 years have lived in Granada province, Andalucía, Spain. Together with my husband and 2 kids we live in a tiny village set high up a mountain in the Alpujarras....it's extremely hot in Summer, and freezing in winter when the pervading smell of Almond smoke wraps the mountain and heats the old Moorish Berber houses.
Alison is an Artist/Blogger on a creative mission. She loves life and is not too keen on "the system"; her plan is to inspire others to live to the full and to take action
My day starts around 10am after my boyfriend has gone to work. I start with a cup of warm water and freshly squeezed lemon. I head out to the balcony of my first floor apartment and pull up a weathered chair, sit down and close my eyes. The morning sun warms my eyelids. I usually take a few minutes to reflect, smile and feel grateful for everything I have. I open my eyes, finish my lemon drink and look out across the dark blue sea. I stretch and head back inside to exercise.
Tatum Vayavananda is a US Marine Corporal. currently serving in Romania. Here’s the story of one of his days.
Woke up pretty early today because we had to travel from Mihail Kogalniceanu, a Romanian Army base north of Constanta, Romania (pronounced “Constanza”) to Babadag, about 89 km away. This is where we, Black Sea Rotational Force 11, have set up a training area so we can train with Romanian militaries.
As I got the chance to ride through the countryside, I’ve noticed how much it looks like certain parts of Tennessee! The expansive farmland on each end; seas of green and waves of brown, contrasting with the grey skies in the horizon.

My day begins about six AM, when my wife rises. I get up to make coffee, share the breakfast papers, and check my emails before tumbling back into bed. Somewhere around ten, I rise properly, bumble around the house, maybe write a blog entry, do the laundry, have a light lunch, and if I’m lucky I get an afternoon nap before waking at two for shower and shave and the night’s work ahead.
Crisp white shirt, blue tie, grey trousers, all adorned with the logo of the limousine taxi company I work for. The day driver arrives with the cab about half-two and we spend a while catching up, as he winds down from his eleven hour shift, and I prepare for my notional thirteen hours.
Johnny Laird lives in Oxted, Surrey, UK.
It’s a tough gig to focus on one day, because there’s a fair amount of variation and some changes are afoot, so here’s a snapshot of one day:
Rich Wallace lives in the Southwest desert of the United States of America.
Much like the rest of the working world, my day consists of a dream-shattering and sometimes vulgar display of my vocabulary aimed at my alarm clock. After rolling out of the rack and stumbling around the kitchen to grab some caffeine, I sit at the kitchen table for a bit trying to motivate my kids in getting ready for school for the day.
