Today I am sending out the love. I had another post planned, but I cannot pass up an opportunity to thank my followers. I am very new to the writing world; kinda fresh from the oven. Blogger enticed me with it's promise of a space all of my own to publish my thoughts on, well, books, bubs and writing. My first post went up on June 17, 2009 and since then I have been honoured and more than a little humbled by a growing following of talented writers and loyal friends. I would like to say a huge thank you. I now have 50 amazing followers!
So here's my SHOUT OUT to pass on the lovin'. Here, in no particular order, are ten blogs that I like to haunt regularly. I'm going to include the links, just in case I stuff up and can't post working links to their blogs.
1. Katie Ganshert.
Blog: 'Katie Ganshert'.
Katie writes amazingly insightful posts about all things 'writing' and that bub of hers is adorable! One of my fav posts is this one titled 'Scars'http://katieganshert.blogspot.com/2009/08/scars.html
Blog: 'Tales of Extraordinary Ordinariness'.
I think, I laugh, I cry. All the markings of a talented writer/blogger. Okay, I haven't cried yet. But her post 'Words Castles' definitely prompted something a little watery in my eye.
3.Karen Walker. Blog: 'karen... following the whispers.' Karen is the author of a memoir titled 'Following the Whispers' and her posts are often like a warm hug. One of my favorites is 'Fear of Failure.' http://karenfollowing the whispers.blogspot.com/2009/08/fear-of-failure.html
4.Carrie, better known as ckbh.
Blog: 'Heim Binas Fiction'
Carrie writes with raw grit and often posts something that fires the cogs inside my head. Her post 'Telling the Truth' will get you thinking. http://heimbinasfiction.blogspot.com/2009/07/telling-truth/html
There are so many others who write blogs far worthier than mine. So thanks for the following. A special thanks to Shelly (who doesn't blog), but has tirelessly supported me in this blogging endeavour. She was my very first follower (even beating my husband to the follow button) and for a while there, my sole comment leaver. Your support matters girl. :)
"Who would deduce the dragonfly from the larva, the iris from the bud, the lawyer from the infant? We are all shape-shifters and magical reinventors. Life is really a plural noun, a caravan of selves." ~ Diane Ackerman
THROUGH MY EYES seeks to inspire. The dragonfly is a symbol of transformation. For me, a symbol of possibilities. This is a place where I share those possibilities. For readers and writers and all those who dare to reinvent.
POSTING: aiming for the 1st and the 15th of every month in 2017.
