It’s Feature Friday with Marcia over at Blogitudes, folks and I’ve been tasked with an important mission that you’ll read about in a bit (and that’s why we aren’t joining in on the #7QT fun as promised! In the meantime, if you’re feeling like sewing seeds of good blog karma, why not link up to share the favorites you’ve found this week and package your pretty posts with a bow? I am!
I didn’t get to read as much as I did last week because – work, and mostly because Gmail decided that it would TiVo my emails and threw a ton of stuff that I subscribe to (all of your blogs) into the junk folder. Imagine my surprise, utter shock and embarrassment when I figured that out at 12:46am Wednesday morning. It went something like “I always like his stuff, he’s going to think I’m not holding up to our unspoken ritual!” or “They’re going to think that I feel I am all that and a bag of chips when we all know I’m just pickles!”
Here are my favorites (one secular and one spiritual – because that’s how I roll) And the features go to:
Annabelle of The Carolina Country Girl
This is a little bit different and a whole lot special. I’ve spoken here before about blog best friends. We all know which Catholic Librarian I’m looking at. If she was diagnosed with Hodgkins Lymphoma just a few days ago, I would be asking anyone and everyone to surprise Annabelle with mentions of support, prayers and love across the interwebs and that’s just what Jen over at JVKom Chronicles did. Let’s not even get into what would happen if it were S, my Knit Whispering RLBFF. Much ash and sackcloth indeed.
I “met” Jen in a tribe exercise and we, along with some other wonderfully talented and creative writers, created an FB group that has remained in touch ever since, supporting one another, crabbing about the ups and downs of all things creative and technical. We’ve even shared bottles of virtual wine and rum with cokes on a Friday night. When she asked our group, we raised our hands to surprise Annabelle. This is a new blog to my reading eyes, and one I’ll be continuing to keep up with, and pray for. I mean, look at this button? She looks like the kinda gal I can pal around with and laugh about nothing with. Won’t you join me in sharing the hashtag across all social media today #TeamTCCG : we’re with ya!
Hannah of Imperishable Jewel
This young woman just makes me smile. When I receive her posts in my inbox, she’s got the biggest smile across her face like she’s just laughed at a joke complete with a Santa hat for extra cheer. Love that! Here she writes about the boxes we live in and how, for some, it’s confining, but for her, it’s freeing because her box is love. I say, after reading her post, you adopt her. I did and it seems that’s just what people and children do. She’s a special soul and I am so lucky to have found her. Now you have her too.
What I wrote about this week
This week was an eye opening week for me. I wrote about being a writer and how I have a grungy, secret sidekick blog to work on my craft. I included a list of my makeshift roadmap to help me along the way and think I could share those resources specifically at some point. I was kind of vague because I am a total scaredy cat. Another post, was all about my secret diary and how it’s different now. Man am I breaking out of the dark places….
I also shared what we made for St. Patrick’s Day. It’s a traditional Puerto Rican favorite and something I make weekly. The recipe is included and all I can say is, whole food lovers need not click. Warning … nitrates, white starch and deep fried.
