Sorry I am so late in posting my week! Did you ever have a weekend it was wall to wall events and meetings? That was my weekend. Tonight was the first time that I could sit down for any length of time.
First off, It was Jim’s birthday. I am very lucky that he’s my husband and I want to do something special. We spent most of yesterday doing whatever he wanted to do. Biking and then a movie. Then I made his favorite meal, Smoked Tofu & Bean Burritos.smoked tofu and bean burritos
We watched movies at home. I had brought home a key lime pie from The Sunflower Bakery & Cafe. It’s one of the best restaurants in Galveston. If you ever get down here, you have got to go there!
I had a great month on my blog in August. I got to meet a lot of great bloggers. I learned lots of new things. Like HTML can be your friend. My writing is getting better. However, I do need to work on it. I spent last week looking for blogs that feature writers. How they do it. What I can do to be more fluid and articulate. You will see it in the new blogs I choose to talk about. I hope you check them out and can get something from these bloggers!
This Weeks New Blogs!
Spirit Meets Bone has a very eclectic group of essays. Though provoking indeed! I loved the one from Freshly Pressed. The Beauty of Becoming.
I am pretty new to writing so when I see a site like Romance Done Write, I just have to click on. Sure enough there are all kinds of posts that can help you become a better writer and blogger. I saw some challenges on there as well!
The Daily Post features articles on how you can become a better blogger/writer. They have Daily Prompts from fellow bloggers that help get the creative juices flowing. There will be Blogging U Courses that you can sign up for now. Topics are Blogging 101, Blogging 201, and Writing 101.
Live to Write-Write to Live Bloggers are the real deal. Writers who do this for their livelihood and are willing to share what they have learned!
