In each of the following anthologies, I have published a short story.
In 2013, I was honored to be a BlogHer Voice of the Year in the Heart category. I have also had blog posts featured on BlogHer.com.
I’ve been fortunate to have been asked to write guest posts on several other blogs.
Could You Live Without TV for a Week?: 5 Minutes for Mom
“From Tears to Smiles”: Laugh With Us Blog
Cabin Camping at The Motherhood Muse
“A Birthday Celebration” at Bigger Picture Blogs
“’Tis a gift to be simple,’ so the Shaker folksong goes. Put simply, being a part of Bigger Picture Blogs makes me want to write.
As I read about the beauty of tall grasses seen from a car window, I want to write.
As I gaze at photo taken of a child’s muddy footprint, I want to write.
As I reflect on others’ writings, I want to write.
And if I write half as well as the other members of this community, then I am pleased.
Out of all the thousands of blogs out there – snarky blogs, blogs that use excessive swearing, blogs that are super critical of everything — I’m glad that I found such a positive community.
It seems like a simple thing, this community, and it is…a simple thing that makes up the Bigger Picture. I’m glad to be a part of it.”
