I am still a novice to blogs but I realise that I should be identifying other blogs that I like. This is part of the code of ethics of bloggers – to admire and link to one another.
The first is Jane and the Ducks and it is run by a dear friend who I rarely get to see, not only because she single parents most of the time and has three adorable girls but also because, as you will see, she is up to insanely creative stuff all the time. I have admired her blog for many years and been the happy recipient of some beautiful presents from this talented person.
Veronique in the land of the ‘little people’ or V au pays des Muffins is another site run by a lovely new friend who now lives at the end of our block. A former window display artist and jeweller, her current focus is textiles. Her work sells privately and to a boutique in Geneva where her creations rub seams with the Designers Guild and others.
And someone whose blog Motivated Grammer seems to be tackling verbage such as the verb to unlike that has cropped onto Facebook. Facebook is deserving of a post in and of itself. How did we actually willingly get lured into divulging all our private details publically? It makes George Orwell’s 1984 seem so fuddy duddy and and lacking in prescience.
I expect I shall find more but for now that is it. I tend to think that bloggers have no families and probably a job that allows them to tootle away at work being creative with words. I have no idea how they would otherwise manage to keep up with this extraordinary pursuit.
