Hello, friends! How is the day going? Are you creating, motivating and dancing? Are you smiling at me now? I hope so.
The friends I have made online never cease to amaze me. I am pointing out three of them today. There are many more, yet today I focus on three people who have stood out over the last few days.
Let me explain, christyb says, with a sweeping hand gesture.
I follow several blogs and regularly read posts. The posts cover quite a span, including poetry, artwork, fashion, health and fiction. Brighter Poetics is one that surprised me in a wonderful way the other day. Charlene, the blog’s writer, included my book Pathways to Illumination in her post Shades of Self. She didn’t link to my site, so I was shocked to see this line within her post:
I have already purchased ‘Pathways to Illumination’ by ChristyB at poeticparfait.com – can we say AWESOME???
How cool is that statement to read unexpectedly?! The answer: very. Thanks, Charlene! She regularly posts fiction, poetry and reflections on her life. I recommend that you follow her site.
Friend #2 came to ME and asked if he could interview me about my debut poetry collection. His name is Maxima, a well-known poet online. I was honored, and told him so, to which he explained that he enjoyed my poetry very much. You can read our interview, titled Magical-Treasury Of My Dreams, to find some tidbits about me (including my favorite quotes). Maxima regularly posts poems to his site that are wonderfully romantic. Check out his site too!
Who else? Let’s see… Aquileana is a delightful friend who encourages my writing and is always promoting me online. We share many networks outside of blog-land, including Twitter and Google+. Her latest post at her site La Audacia De Aquiles is a great one, about the fabulous William Shakespeare. The post includes discussion about his sonnets, photography, links to articles for additional information and more. Be sure to translate it to English, if you don’t read Spanish fluently.
Do you know what language I speak? The language of friendship – and I see lots of smiles in the future! Take care, and chat again soon.
