Blogworld Saturday



I always marvel at all the different things that bloggers come up with. Some get me laughing uproariously; some get me all teary-eyed; some make my heart beat faster; some just leave me open-mouthed in admiration. Maybe some of them will do for you what they did for me.

Nursemyra. The Good Nurse shared some tips on a cheap and potentially fun way for men to keep tabs on a most important aspect of their health. You'll never look at stamps the same way again.

Mr. Fabulous. He wrote about a different kind of love story, Mr. Fab did... deeply passionate, yet sad somehow. One thing I learned from his post: I could never, ever internalize love the way he does.

Manic Monday posts by Travis and Ian. I like Ian's fiction, and his maiden Manic Monday offering was terrifically action-packed; it had me gripping the edge of my seat. Trav's adults-only Manic Monday post was sizzling; I could practically sense everyone who read it needing to take a cold shower. Turns out one wasn't necessary after all. Haha!

The Thinker. This seventeen-year-old young lady writes with a maturity that surpasses that of many older bloggers' (yours truly included). She transforms her thoughts into blogging material so passionately and eloquently. With her summer holiday coming up, she has decided to do the same thing the old-fashioned way: using pen and paper.

Gem. Some words are beautiful, some are outright hideous. Gale, however, uses them in engaging ways. No wonder she's been getting acclaims left and right for her writing.

The Laughorist. This post is an example of how Pawlie blends elements of English grammar with everyday life experiences, creating blog entries that, like fine chocolate, should be savored slowly in order to fully grasp each nuance and the depth of flavor. An unforgettable experience.

Houseband00. Memories of having to face harsh reality and
coming to terms with it in one of the most romantic places on earth is heart-breaking. But the truth, love, and beauty that his beloved M left him and their son will far outweigh the pain and grief, I believe.

Have a terrific weekend everyone! Stay safe and sexy.

Thanks for the nod, Lizza. You're soft on words, too. All writers have that word thang. So glad we share that bond. I've got a great word wonk post coming up Wednesday that's so good, I can hardly wait until Wednesday. Is it Wednesday yet?

Lizza said...

Oooo, now you're making me impatient for Wednesday!

Travis said...

Thanks for the shout out! That story was a departure for me...just a little experiment. It appears to have gone over well.

Lizza said...

Yes, it did. And not just because of its adult theme, but because it was so well written...and the twist. :-D

CS said...
