I don’t know how often you guys look over to the right column, but in the past few weeks, I’ve made some fun connections with other bloggers out there who are also trying to get out there with their writing. They are smart, fun and provide great insight to their lives. I wanted to showcase everyone, who you may have seen leave comments in past posts. As I stated in an earlier post, I’m always looking to network and meet new people out there. These writers have been gracious enough to link to me and I sincerely thank them.
If you’re interested in trading links, feel free to e-mail me at the address on the top-right of this blog.
About a month ago, Stephanie from Watch Your Steph sent me an e-mail letting me know about her new writing e-zine called The Oddville Press and asking if I would like to submit some material. I thought that this group of people could use some help getting the word out, so not only did Stephanie and I trade blog links but I also let her have a whole post to herself, putting a call out for submissions. Steph is fun to read and I enjoy having her on-board as a fellow writer.
While reading Auria Cortes’ blog I saw a comment from a fellow writer. Upon clicking her link, I was taken to a blog that was not just about writing, but also about her quirky personality and just fun interactions with the world. I was instantly hooked on Colby Marshall’s blog and within a day I had asked if she wanted to trade blogroll links. She accepted my offer and I’ve been reading ever since. Colby has been so kind to visit here and comment, and I greatly appreciate it. Her blog is a great read and makes you LOL for real. This is a great recommendation!
In a similar fashion that I found Colby’s blog, I came across Melanie’s site about living in Mexico. The name alone got me interested. This writer and blogger lives in Mexico with her husband and brings a unique perspective to a life that is very different than the one I live here in New York. Along with talking about writing, you can read great posts about the culture, housing and best of all: food. Melanie’s blog is a keeper and I suggest you have a plate ready before you embark into ‘Mexico’!
I finish this post with the whole reason it came to be in the first place. I have heard a lot about the AbsoluteWrite.com forums and decided to check it out. While I wasn’t hooked and visit quite rarely, Creative A saw a thread I posted on and commented here. Upon seeing his blog, I saw we have the same favorite movie: Back To The Future. That was all I needed. Now we both read each other’s blogs and post comments. Just a few hours ago he e-mailed me asking to trade blog links, and I was happy to say yes. His site has some really good stuff on it and I think you should definitely check it out.
So welcome to my updated blogroll. While some people have been there for a bit, I thought everyone deserved a proper introduction. Thanks to everyone who’s trading links. I sincerely appreciate it.
