I’ve been selfish. I roam around many other blogs in search of stimulation, inspiration, entertainment and company, and I’m a regular visitor at many blog-gems. But I haven’t been sharing these with you.
Also, I know how many weeks you can spend skimming the surface of the mighty blog-mine (ramping up the metaphors here) without finding one of those gems. I believe about 60 million WordPress bloggers are at work, so much drilling and digging is necessary to find few that suit you best.
So for a while I’ll use Sundays to share one of my finds, because you might also appreciate the charms of my favourite blogs, old and new. Topics matter less to me than style and substance.
Today’s new blog: Saved By Words
Tagline: When a woman tells the truth she is creating the possibility for more truth around her. Adrienne Rich
Let me introduce you to Saved By Words, Elizabeth Slaughter’s blog. In current posts, Elizabeth is looking back over her college years in the 1950s. There’s plenty of fun and all sorts of surprising insights, the sort that are inclined to strike a person only after a few decades have passed. If you love reading, if you think about the role books and words play in your own life, if you enjoy honest and humane reflection in plain language, I think you’ll enjoy this blog.
