A few favorite blogs.

Part of being The Versatile Blogger, awarded to me by Michelle Beish, is passing the award along to 15 new-found blogging buddies and contacting them with congratulations. The whole blog experience is less than a year old for me, so here’s a list of the blogs I’ve “newly-found” so far:

Seth Godin’s Blog – Discovered while trolling my Facebook News Feed, I quickly subscribed to Seth’s daily posts because he’s inspired me in the past and still does today.

Julia Cameron’s Blog –  a long-time practitioner of The Artist’s Way, I recently signed on to Julia Cameron Live, her new online course and community.

Writing It Real BlogSheila Bender is a writer and a teacher. I recently attended her writer’s conference in Port Townsend, WA. Great workshop that’s great fun.

Media Post & Media Bistro blogs – great media industry-type stuff.

Tiny LightsSusan Bono‘s lovely resource for writers and other strangers.

Clouds Full of Rain – Initially, it is the name that captures my attention. Now, I’m interested in Tamika’s journey.

49 and holding – One of the ways I’ve re-connected with cherished friend and old colleague Deborah Cole Wise.

brainywoman’s bw Blog – Every Tuesday, Patricia Anaya serves up her take on The Law of Attraction and more.

SoulPancake – more community than a blog per se, but very social nonetheless. Not to mention I like to chew on life’s big questions.

To be a versatile blogger.

It is in early April when Michelle Beish honors me with The Versatile Blogger award, and I am truly grateful to her. For me, it is such a gift to connect with those of like mind … isn’t this one of the reasons we reach out with our words and actions in the first place? Michelle’s thoughtfulness reminds me that it’s nice to acknowledge it once in a while.

While living in Idaho, I fall in love with goats. Typically, their personalities tickle my funny bone, as I expect most goats are characters. Shortly after discovering this, I read Brad Kessler‘s Goat Song … and fall in love with Brad Kessler’s writing, too.

I was a cowboy in another life.

Those personalized ads on Google and Facebook -I find them fascinating; I’m learning about so many products and services I’m actually interested in. The rest, I ignore –like telemarketing phone calls. It proves to me that Big Brother is only as irritating as you allow him to be. Or her, depending on your point of view.

I’ve lived in six United States and have visited nine countries … so far.

The science of the soul, quantum physics, spirituality, noetic science, What the Bleep, The Bible … my mind likes to linger here.

I’ve produced the advertising/promotion campaigns and  commercials for Xena: Warrior Princess, Charmed, Vanishing Sun, William Shatner’s TekWar series, New York’s Movie Station, Hercules: The Legendary Journeys and more, during my 30 years in the broadcast creative services biz.

JFK was assassinated on my birth date: 22 November.
