Follow the links

I know I just did a Follow the links post, and I’d normally give it some time before putting another out there, but in my effort to catch up, I’ve got more I need to share, so please – follow the links…

Congrats are in order for Tele of Hooked, and I want to spread the word about her success!  I’ve been very lucky to stumble across the writing of a few people that I’ve also been able to create a genuine connection with, even if it is just in blogland, and Tele is one of those people.  I’m so excited to see her piece on National Fisherman.  Check it out!

And, because I haven’t introduced anyone new in a while, and this piece is worth every second of your time, please read Valuing the impulsive word on bottledworder, a blog I recently started reading and suspect I will continue to follow closely.

Mary Jaksch, Chief Editor at Write to Done did a wonderful interview with Seth Godin, and he has some great things to say about writing, making art, and his new book, The Icarus Deception.  It’s a must read (more on this later).

And to close on a light note … like Stephanie at Listful Thinking, I too come from a family that has not yet evolved to incorporate the hug into social interactions.  If you are one of us and get tired of people looking at you funny, read this.  I promise you’ll feel much better.

One thought on “Follow the links

  1. Aw, thanks for this, EBW! When I’m fantasizing about a dream book tour (for the book that I’m procrastinating writing by playing on the internets and indulging said fantasy) I think about couch-surfing across the country, finally meeting the blogland friends who have been so wonderful. You’re on that list.

    And thanks for Stephanie’s fantastic post. I’m a hugger, but used to have to train my volunteers, “Please don’t hug the homeless kids; you don’t know what your idea of comfort/connection means to someone else.” Could always see the outrage on someone’s face – “Everyone needs hugs!” Wish I’d had this back then. 🙂
