I don't think you can ever feel lonely with Blogher...If I'm having a "poor me" day, I come to Blogher, and read the posts from all the wonderful writers on NaBloPoMo...and I've met some of the most wonderful people whose friendship I'm going to cherish for a long time...Robin (or Sunbonnet Smart to her fans) posted this beautiful post on memories with her father, and the weird item he would cook up and take to work...or wherever he went...http://www.blogher.com/potatoes-go
Another blogger who I cherish is a close friend whose comments have comforted me on more November nights then I can remember...she's a night owl like me, and several times after I posted something that just ripped my heart out, she is like a warm hug of words..."everything is going to be alright Amiga..." Her post on daring to choose a life without prescribed meds was thought provoking and I thought if you missed this...it's a great read...http://www.blogher.com/it-selfish-choose-life-without-prescribed-medications
I recently discovered this blog and I just LOVED Lady in Red's two shades of blue pictures, she shows a photo of her daughters winter artwork, and then includes a photo her dad took when he was in the tropics of the ocean...it almost reminds me of the innocence of winter, followed by the desire of summer...Or...I just thought the pictures were awesome...http://myrandrspace.blogspot.com/2012/12/super-saturday-off-to-sawdust-shop.html?showComment=1354981610218#c5745195435294903216
I am so glad I joined NaBloPoMo for November...I've met so many awesome writers, and read so many incredible posts that I now feel like I have friends all over the world...and then discover, so of them actually live close by like KarenLynnn (Hi Karen, when are we going to do coffee???), and this lady who giggles, and just happens to be married to a trucker...http://gigglingtruckerswife.blogspot.com/
Becca Parson's is a Southerner who now lives in Canada, and makes a mean apple pie...and it's beautiful...check out the pictures, and her recipe, and then scroll down to her story of the night she drove to an eatery in Montana and then couldn't figure out why all the truckers were tailgating her...one hint...there's a big difference between kilometers and mph...http://www.blogher.com/frame.php?url=http://southernersinthegreatwhitenorth.wordpress.com/
Darcie wrote this post over a year ago, but I still think it's so special, especially with what's going on in my life, it really has brought me a lot of peace...http://www.blogher.com/skiers-dream
Loki-Lou should be required reading for anyone desperately searching for a job...her idea on job speed dating should be taken seriously...http://oystercardjunkie.co.uk/job-centre-speed-dating/
The Sweet Pea pictures are up...the pictures are up...Waffle-Wednesday lives on a beautiful farm in Oregon and last month told us the story of her pig, the incredibly beautiful Sweet Pea, and the story of her babies...this month she updates us on how Sweet Pea and the family is doing, and there's pictures...http://www.blogher.com/frame.php?url=http://waffle-wednesday.com/ As if choosing a name like Waffle-Wednesday isn't cool enough, her real name is Liesl Garner and shared with me the most incredible wisdom when I recently hit the dreaded "blog plateau..."
When you are on, you are an amazing writer. When you feel off, you still write. Do you know what that means? You are developing a habit, and you continue writing whether you feel like it or not. Beauty and genius are in there. Glorious thoughts untangle themselves as they cross our lips or pencil tips. You don't often have a brilliant thought and say, "Oh - I should go write that down." Most of us writers, have them as they are appearing on the page.We open ourselves to the surprise of it, the steady beat of it, the blank page glaring at us, and we embrace it. We throw ourselves at it, until we find we are swimming in something lovely.
Isn't that awesome? I just had to share that with you, she recently left it on my comment page and I've reread it several times...a few times because I was stuck, and few other times because it was so inspiring...
Love, Cindy Huber
P.S...I don't know how I would've gotten through the month of November without my friends at Blogher, and I'm deeply indebted to all of them, Denise and especially ElaineRN who I'm going to take up on her offer of driving in a BMW through the twisted hills of Italy while eating Twinkies on the last day of earth...and Kraken (I LOVE YOU!), I'm going to be including more posts shortly but I'm suppose to be packing for Iowa and my husband just pulled in and now I'm on the computer again, and he's going to yell...
