Blogs that make my day

Every time I open WordPress, my blog reader gives me images and words that make me look and think more than twice.

I’ve explored only a few of the millions available, for talent abounds and there’s little time. Here are some that give me joy every day.

The strong, sassy, self-deprecating attitude of Bob Summer’s blog, which doesn’t for a minute conceal the caring writer behind it. This short story shows Bob’s talent:  http://bit.ly/17K2NRj

The art of Ray Ferrer, stark black and white images, some or all done with spray paint. Check it out here: http://bit.ly/12eEIRj

Almost daily I get my snorts and giggles from Lindy Moone and John L. Monk, the quickest wits I know.

Like this from Lindy: Do you suffer from Premature E-Publication? http://bit.ly/156smJg

Both Lindy and John dazzle me with their language. Here’s John’s “Disturbing incident at work today: they found out I’m a writer.” http://bit.ly/19fBtsc

I enjoy discovering side bits of history on David Lawlor’s blog, History with a Twist. Check out his archives, starting with “Mrs. Nash, the Transvestite with Custer’s Seventh Cavalry.” http://bit.ly/1bmLUxk

Some blogger personalities shine, and that’s what I like about run4joy59’s blog. I was profoundly moved by this post: Doing the right thing? http://bit.ly/15opxSH

Finally, the award for most uplifting–my eyes are filled with wonder at every submission by nature photographer Janson Jones, http://bit.ly/19fIppc

THANK YOU ALL!

  1. Hi Carol, Thanks for including me alongside such great bloggers. I’m really glad you enjoy History With A Twist. I followed your links in the article and have already started following several of the blogs you like.Thanks for introducing me to them 🙂

  2. Well, thank you, Carol, and I couldn’t agree more about your other choices. There are a lot of undiscovered gems out there, gleaming in the darkness — writers who may feel like they’re howling in the wilderness. (Ha ha, I’m mixing my metaphors, so now I’m picturing glowing wolves typing away at keyboards — on hilltops!)

    Let’s make sure they don’t glow alone. Let’s “like” their posts, and especially, let’s “share.”

  3. Finally got to look at them all – wonderful sites.

    Oh mega wega huge thanks from me. I’m so useless at this bloggy stuff too. I lost your comment when I tried to re-jig my stories – doh. Checking out the other suggestions now. Thanks again.

  5. I’m sharing this on our Facebook page, Carol. 😉
