The delightful Whimsy of The Creamery has noticed a drought in the blogosphere. She's come up with the idea of posting three blog posts that you think others should read. This will hopefully give each of us an introduction to a new blog that's fantastic or show off a specific post that you think is wonderful. Check out Whimsy's blog over the next few weeks where she'll link all the Three Things posters together giving you a list of great reads.
Three Things You Should Read According to Amanda:
Michel from Facts Are Strictly Optional is hysterical. She's living in Sudan working for the US Embassy. Her post Dear, USO is particularly enjoyable.
Linda from All & Sundry is amazing. She is what I would call a word magician. She has this way of combining them that makes you think "YES. THAT is a perfect description of that particular parenting event." Her post Blanket Apologies came to mind when I was trying to think of something great to show you as an example.
Matt, Liz and Madeline is a blog that tugs (HARD) at your heartstrings. It's the story of a father, Matt, raising his daughter, Madeline, after losing his wife, Liz, the day after Madeline's birth. Matt has been featured in People and on Oprah for the work he's done to help widows and widowers with the Liz Logelin Foundation. I started reading his blog not long after Liz died. You won't be sorry if you go back to the beginning.
That's my list of three. Perhaps I'll make it a Friday event.
P.S. - if you're already reading these blogs tell me in the comments. What do you love about them?
