Blogging is about community, and despite the proliferation of social media, it still holds its own. We interact, we share, we support each other (which is what the Insecure Writer’s Support Group is all about. The question this month is about the genre we love to read, and I’ll answer that in a roundabout fashion).
Last week I was on Jungle Red, a wonderful blog run by seven bestselling authors. It was lovely to meet a new audience and speak about my newfound twin loves: reading and walking, at the same time. It was affirming to see so many bloggers from all over the world united in their love for books, and walking. We spoke about walking in snow and rain, walking despite health setbacks, and walking for sanity. Here’s the post, if you’d like to take a gander at it.
My walks these days, as well as all my chores, are far more enjoyable because of audiobooks. I get all my audiobooks from the Singapore National Library, so I experiment with various genre. The latest book on my phone was Yangsze Choo’s wonderful literary ghost story, The Night Tiger. It’s been on my TBR pile for months, and I’m so glad I got to it.
Amid all the reading and the huge work-and-life-load, I keep missing good blog posts, because I often can’t find time for more than one weekly visit to all the blogs I follow. When I do visit, I sometimes hop away after a quick ‘Like’ , meaning to come back and write a comment, but don’t always manage.
I’m writing and editing a fair bit these days, so February has been a sort of lean month, blog-visits-wise.
In short, I thought I’d add a Linky list, open for a week, till the 10th of March, and invite you all to add your old posts that I haven’t commented on. I’ll delete spam and keep the list tidy, so if you want to browse through the list and visit other blogs and make friends, you’re most welcome. The link will remain up, till further notice.
CLICK HERE to enter your link, and check out posts by other bloggers.
In the linky, please do the following:
- Link to the Blog Post you want read, and not to your blog. I’ll delete links that lead to home pages and websites.
- In the Blog Title part of the Link form, add your Blog Post Title. If your post title is intriguing, others might want to click through as well.
Do NOT do the following:
- Do not add spam links.
- Do not add homepage links to Websites/ Blogs.
- Do not add more than one post.
- Do not ask me to edit/ make changes to the list. (I edit typos without being prompted, don’t worry).
