Thursday's This &That

This is a rerun of Thursday's post, lost in the latest Blogger mishap. My apologies to those of you who stopped to say hello. Apparently the comments are floating in space somewhere...

Here's an eclectic mix of goodies, in no particular order, that I've been wanting to share:

The Best Blogs About Writing can be found at the Quips and Tips for Writers site. Laurie Pawlik-Kienlen shares her take on, you got it, the best blogs about writing. :)

Lady Blogger Social Online Conference - July 8-10, 2011. It's billed as the Online Conference for All Blogging and Social Media Women. Special speakers, discussions, and more.

Long Ridge Writers Group invites you to join their "Post a Note" Forum every Monday. Writers are welcome to ask a question and stop by on Monday to check out the answers.

Lindsey Edwards' blog, The Write Words, is packed full of tips and links for writers. "Top Links for Writers", posted on Tuesday, is one of my favorites.

The Giveaway Lady is a fun stop featuring book and product reviews, and of course, giveaways!

Workshops begin again at Coffeehouse for Writers on Monday May 23. Sessions include historical fiction, blogging, Gothics, creating good characters, marketing, journaling, to name a few.

What's the latest tip, link, or tidbit you've run across lately?

Happy Weekend!

  1. Karen:
    Thank you for the links. I will come back to them when I have more time.

  2. It didn't eat any of my posts, but a lot of comments are gone...

  3. Isn't it annoying? So great of you to post these again, thanks!

  4. After taking a week off then having Blogger down for a few days, I'm still catching up on visiting other blogger's sites and saying hi.

  5. These are great, Karen. Thanks. I actually left a message yesterday but it didn't stick, then my internet went down. When I got back on I realized Blogger had lost Thursday post. What a day. But all's well that ends well.

    Have a wonderful weekend.

  6. Cecelia,
    Hope they are helpful for you!

    Yes, a bit of a challenge, it was, and thankfully nothing much else was lost.

    Seems it has set everyone back a bit. Oh well, builds patience, right?

    Thanks for stopping back. Hope you didn't lose anything at your blog.

    Happy weekend,

  7. How sweet of you,Karen! Thanks for sharing.

    Hmm... the best tidbit I've run accross lately is that dark chocolate is good for your brain and mine. Aha!

  8. comment disappeared,your post too was sucked into cyber world. Thanks for the links.

  9. Thanks for the useful links!

    Hmm...the best tidbit I've come across lately is not writing-related, but I'll share anyway: use olive oil as an effective and natural way to hydrate hair. I've been doing just that for my curly locks and am a believer!

    I am also a fan of the above commentator's post about dark chocolate being good for the mind. I have read that dark chocolate in particular releases chemicals in the brain similar to those released when we are in love. Like we needed another reason to eat chocolate, right? ;-)

    Be well.

  10. Thank you for the links. I need a lot of tips for writing. I wasn't aware of the blog mishaps, but I haven't blogged for some days!

  11. I'm pretty sure I commented on this on Thursday, but hey! I love to comment, so here goes:

    Thanks for the great link round-up!


    Hope you're having a good weekend!

  12. Oh I see some new blogs to check out...thanks!

  13. Great links, Karen! They ought to keep me out of the garden for a good while. ;)

  14. Thanks, gang! Appreciate your support! :)


Thanks for stopping by and sharing your thoughts. Have a blessed day!
