This third star for the Blog Of The Year award comes courtesy of the relentless WordPress troll-hunter, defender of political rights advocate and all around hilarious music DJ, otherwise known as Kavalkade Krew. Thank you!
His own acceptance speech is peppered with tales of secret agents (featuring yours truly as 009, HRM’s crown agent extraordinaire) and is bound to entertain.
What I love most about this third star is that it comes sprinkled with fairy dust — and its magic can only be worked when sharing it with others. So here is my third round of nominees.
Shawn L. Bird is one eccentric teacher, author, poet, and Rotarian. It would be easier to tell you what you won’t find on her eclectic blog. Here are some of the things on offer: anecdotes, book reviews, Commentary, Grace Awakening, Literature, Monday Meme and Poetry.
- There is also good advice On Writing and Parenting to be found here, as well as beautiful Poetry. “I write. I observe. And then I write some more. People and their behaviour fascinate me endlessly. I read. A lot. I love to learn.” LGH
“My memories are my identity,” says alygeorges and this is why her blog takes the form of a memoir: memoirs of aly (the way i see it). By sharing her experiences, this free spirit hopes to motivate others and “help them understand that there’s so much to life than just resigning oneself to misery.”
Nina Kaytel‘s blog depicts the journey towards becoming a better writer. You will find here Creative Writing Tips and Applications and her posts reflect some topics that she struggles with. “I hope this blog will be helpful to others as it is to me,” says Nina. Well. I certainly find it very helpful.
“I’m an author and currently working on my first novel. I take inspiration from the writing style of Stephen King, in that I like tale telling that sticks to the subject matter,” says, dawnyhosking. I am always pleased when one of her posts come up. There is a lot of strength and resilience to be found on this blog. Well worth a read.
Some of these blogs are relatively new to me, but I have found in them snippets of wisdom, thoughtful insights, laughter on a lonesome day and always something more to go back for. I hope you will give them a try and see it for yourself.
