Do you have trouble checking out all the links, email post announcements and Twitter suggestions which you get in a day or a week?
I certainly do.
And just now, I’m having more trouble than usual what with all the posts I’m creating for my book launch, the reading of proofs for The Loyalist’s Wife, and a zillion other must-do items which are all converging in my brain. That being said I have some great links for my readers today.
Lorrie Porter’s blog post, which I finally got around to reading (having been on a 3-day holiday), is a trove of writing-related blog addresses and blog awards which she has received. She chose to answer them all together to the benefit of all of us who enjoy seeing other writers’ links.
Note: When you start clicking on the links you’ll lose Lorrie’s site as she has forgotten to have each one open in a new page. Not to worry. Just use the back button on your browser to go back to Lorrie’s list.
Lorrie mentioned my blog here and invited all of us whom she mentioned to pick an award or all of them and participate.
Here, then, are my responses to the Very Inspirational Blogger Award, the name of which sets pretty well in my brain and I’ll refer to it over and over, particularly on those days when I myself need inspiration.
Favourite colour: Blue. Royal blue to be specific.
Favourite animal: The human animal who married me
Favourite number: The ones with dollar signs in front of them on cheques. Just kidding.
Favourite non-alcoholic drink: My own version of hot chocolate: 1/2 tsp. Quik in a mug of steaming skim milk.
Favourite alcoholic drink: Crown Royal, Diet Coke and 2 slices of lime
Facebook or Twitter: LinkedIn writing groups although I do think there are a lot of amazing writing gurus on Twitter. That’s where I found a lot of wonderful web wizards.
My passions: My family, my writing, my jewelry making
Giving or receiving gifts: Giving, although receiving is pretty intoxicating at times, too
Favourite city: Quebec City dans la belle province au Canada
Favourite TV shows: West Wing, anything which is historical and well done, such as Downton Abbey.
Here are some blogs which I follow at the moment:
I do tend to change sites I follow based upon what I need to learn about the book business at any given moment.
Consider leaving a comment with favorite sites you’ve found. I do love the sharing aspects of the web, don’t you?
