Here are lucky 7 of the at least 77,777 bloggers doing cool things.
ONE. Guess who’ll be laughing it up in NY, NY this coming Sunday morning?? Katie West and her Levity Project gang!! And guess who’s posting this teary-eyed because she won’t be joining them in the flesh? (Me.) If you’re gonna be in NY on May 2nd, go play for World Laughter Day at 10:00 a.m. for an hour and a half. Or if you have a brother, sister, aunt, friend, co-worker, blogging bud who lives in NYC? Tell them to register! The Levity Project is a global celebration of simple joy that’s big, Big, BIG fun — and growing.
TWO & THREE. I wasn’t even going to read Betsy Wuebker’s and Lori’s Hoeck’s co-authored “The Narcissist : A User’s Guide” because I didn’t know a narcissist (or so I thought.) But I read it for my daughter’s sake. And you know what?!! I learned I was allowing a certain narcissist to make themselves feel better by making me feel like less. Yuck. But, no more, baby!! I was absolutely gripped for the entire 50 minutes it took me to devour this free e-book. This guide is helpful, helpful, helpful with concrete ways to understand and move on from difficult people.
FOUR. Holy cow — has it really been one one full year plus a day since I first touted Ma Vie Folle Sheila’s magical vanilla kisses that instantly transport to forests of delights? Far far too long to go without raving about her natural, organic, handmade Aventine Hill wonders of the earth!! And you know what?? Her body products are not only gorgeous to soak in and to slather on — but when you’re reading and writing blogs you can keep her sun-saturated namaste wares right beside you to bask in the sight, smells — and yes — even the sounds of, like this…
Mothers’ day is coming up — perfect time for Aventine Hill!
FIVE. When I first crashed Jeanne’s old blog a year and a half ago she had maybe 47 signatures on her (tho she calls it “our”) Endometriosis e-petition. Now she has 578 signatures — and growing! If you haven’t yet signed it, PLEASE pop over to Jeanne’s Chronic Healing blog or straight to the Endometriosis Petition and take 1 or 2 minutes to sign and make a difference in the lives of millions of women (and the ones who love them) who are not getting the correct diagnoses and treatment they need. THANKS! Thanks SO much!!!
SIX. Laura Hegfield of the Shine The Divine blog! Her young daughter, Rosewillow — as part of her preparation for her Bat Mitzvah — has taken it upon herself to captain a team for the upcoming MS Journey Of Hope Walk in Hanover, NH on May 22nd. Please consider sponsoring Rosewillow with a small donation for this wonderful very worthy cause. It ALL adds up! With the support of her generous family and friends, Rosewillow has so far raised $1663.00 of her $2000.00 goal. (I plan to sponsor very soon!)
SEVEN. The Pioneer Woman — I LOVE The Pioneer Woman!!! If I had to choose between giving up her blog or giving up donuts and beer, I most definitely would get used to cake and wine. Ree doesn’t know me from Adam and possibly never will, but that matters not one whit. She is sweet, funny, giving, loving, and kind. Yes, she’s now THE top female blogger, and will most likely remain so, but that’s not why I read her, ’cause she’s all popular and such — I read her because of the sweet, funny, giving, loving, kind part. Oh yes — and she is wildly creative. And a little naughty on occasion! 😉
