Let the Sun Shine

Patricia Stoltey gave me the Sunshine Award. Patricia is a sweetie and her blog is informative, conversational, and fun to read. She’s also the author of the Desert Hedge Murders series.

If I understand it right, this award is passed on to followers who bring a ray of sunshine to your blog. That would include everyone who follows and/or comments here on Straight From Hel! I thought I’d pass it on to five new followers of Straight From Hel.

1. Julie Musil - Julie is the author of both fiction and nonfiction and her blog is informative, encouraging and sometimes quite funny.

2. Nancy Julien Kopp - Nancy’s blog is called Writer Granny’s World. She blogs about things in her life, as well as writing and books.

3. Yvonne Osborne - In Yvonne’s blog, The Organic Writer, she posts poetry, pieces about writing and even tells us about her garden.

4. Cheryl Eklund - Cheryl signs each post on her blog, A Writer’s Journey, with the name Saira Cee. She’s a new blogger so stop by and read her words about writing and what inspires her.

5. Inside the Shrink is the blog of a psychologist who posts on a variety of subjects from writing to religion to emotions and what she calls Psychobabble.

So, check out these five bloggers and say hi to them. I hope you’ll find one or two or five you want to follow.

  25. Hi Cheryl. It's been a crazy week. First, the hotel with Internet connection from hell, then coming home and finding out I've been called for two months of jury duty. (More on that tomorrow.) I'm clearly a ditz and you're a sweetie, for sure!
