Blog Soup – Week Of October 22nd
Each week, Blog Soup will highlight some of my favourite posts from other bloggers around the interweb.
1. That’s What She Said: The Hammer Itself Is Not Evil by Schmutzie – One of the best things about my time at Blissdom Canada in Toronto, was getting a chance to meet some of the amazing bloggers I have been following for so many months. One of the bloggers I was fortunate enough to meet, Schmutzie (Elan Morgan), is also the owner of one of my favourite blogs. This post includes the first video in her new series, That’s What She Said, and discusses her initiative to raise $2000, by her 40th Birthday, in support of funding water projects in Rwanda. It’s a great cause and I hope you’ll stop by to read more about it. (PS – She was as cool in person as I imagined her to be)
2. Things We Do Like The Dickens by Whit Honea – Whit is one of my favourite writers. The way he can twist the mundane every day moments into inspiring posts, is something I admire and hope to learn from. This post is just a small example of his excellence.
3. Why Can’t I Stop Worrying by Kissing the Frog – One of my favourite things about blogging and reading blogs, is when you find a new blog that knocks you on your ass. That’s what happened when I read this post by Kathy at Kissing the Frog, as she describes the similarities between her 16 month old son and the 6 yo son she lost in 2010. I’m not what you would call a “manly” man but for whatever reason, it takes a lot for me to cry. This one did that to me.
That’s all for this week! I hope you enjoyed these posts as much as I did.
