Once again, thanks and curses to Lin at Breathing Space for tempting me with this particular blogger’s challenge.
Today’s recommendations of lovely blogging friends whose sites I encourage you to visit:
- Diahann, at Stories from the Belly
- Mara, at My Migraine Family
- Frances, at Garden of Words [formerly known as the web-identity “Okelle.” And I must say — no disrespect to Frances! — but Okelle still has the better (as in: AMAZEBALLS!) bio.]
[Bonus recommendation: Heather D., at Becoming Cliché. I feel an affinity for each of these bloggers based, in part, on how each of them interrogates the meaning and purpose of their own story-telling — but great Internet quote-memes require great pictures too, yes? What I have been learning from Heather is that, if one wants the awesomest pictures around, one really wants to know a zookeeper during hatching season.]
Now, if any of these folks decides to participate in any way — from posting quotes on their own blogs/Facebook feeds/tweets, to putting some favorite words in a comment here, to just having a warm happy feeling a few weeks from now when they read this post and realize I was thinking of them — that’ll be lovely too!
