I Miss You Blogfest
November 16 2012
Hosted by Andrew Leon, Matthew MacNish, and Alex J. Cavanaugh
The bloggers we really miss…
and the ones we would really miss!
Do you have a couple blogger buddies who aren’t posting as often? Those who’ve pulled back and seem absent from the blogging world? Do you have blogger buddies you are grateful they are still around and would miss if they vanished? Now is your chance to show your appreciation and spotlight them!
On November 16, list one to three bloggers you really miss and one to three bloggers you would miss if they stopped blogging. Then go leave a comment on those blogs.
Our blogger friends are special – time to let them know!
I couldn’t possibly participate in this without mentioning one of my first blogging friends. A gracious blogger, friendly person, and a definate ‘pay it forward’ kind of person. I’m sorry to bring tears to your eyes.
In Loving Memory of Jane Sutton.
Many of you know her, but for those of you who don’t I’ve copied the message her husband left on her blog.
My wife, the love of my life, passed away last Friday evening. The following is her obituary.
Jane Kennedy Sutton loving wife, mother, sister, grandma, and author passed away May 6, 2011 in Fort Myers, Fl.
Survived by husband Kim Sutton, daughter Heather Sutton-Lewis, sister Terry Cromie, grandson Sebastian Sutton-Lewis, son-in-law Christopher Lewis and brother-in-law William Cromie all of Fort Myers, Fl.
Jane was born in San Diego, Ca. January 15, 1949. Graduated from Central High School in Little Rock Ar. In 1966. Jane and her family were world travelers living in Taiwan, South Korea, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, Italy, and Saudi Arabia. It was during these sojourns she honed her skills as a writer, her first novel “The Ride” published by ArcheBooks.
Jane was an active member of the Gulf Coast Writers Association and the Florida Writers Association. She was also a prolific blogger where she shared her knowledge of the art(s) of writing.
There are so many bloggers I would miss if they stopped blogging. Of course, Alex J Cavanaugh
, the Godfather of blogging would be missed by all. As a matter of fact, I became a little nervous when Alex announced this blog fest. I don’t want to visit his blog, because if this is his epic way of saying he’s leaving the blogging world I will not be happy.
There are so many that I can’t name you all. I actually tried to make a list three times, and each time I figured out I forgot a name of a person who brings me joy and entertains me on a daily basis. Let’s just say that you know who you are, and thank you for making this crazy blogging life so awesome!
Enjoy the blog fest!
P.S. I’ve been invited to speak at a middle school about writing today, so I won’t be online until later in the day. I’ll be catching up on blogging in the evening and on Saturday after the GRW meeting.
Have a great weekend!!!!
