Posts of the Week

The icon/award to the left here is yours for the taking if your blog post has been named as a Post of the Week - either as top post or as a runner up, today or in past weeks.

I've had a pretty busy week and therefore have seen fewer blogs than usual, which translates to fewer top posts in my list than usual.

I think I'm going to change things around a little bit just for this week and start with Reader's recommendations. Following that will be my choices for top posts in no particular order.

Recommended by Cricket:

Freedom of Flight and Sunflowers
by Shimp
at Land of Shimp

Recommended by Kevin:

by Magazine Man
at Somewhere on the Masthead

and it's continued at...

Other wonderful posts in no particular order are:

Lucy and Ethel
by A Woman
at Autumn Desire

It'll Hear You Back
by Cabo
at Hey Cabo

by Sandy
at Writing in Faith

by Brian
at WayStationOne

by Nancy
at Life in the Second Half

by Kelly
at Cross Your T's

Please drop by their blogs for a visit and leave a kind comment if you have the time. Also, please feel free to add your own choices (for any blog except this one) for a specific blog post in the comments section below, where others can see them.

Thank you.

Hilary, as always I enjoyed these so very much. A great mix of the visually stirring, fun and then downright moving.

I've come to look forward to Wednesday mornings, as I head in towards my computer, clutching my much needed coffee, ready to go on internet adventures.

Wonderful posts, and thank you so much to Cricket for mentioning me, and of course you, for including me. It really touched my heart to be recommended by Cricket whose belief in faith, and people is something I so greatly admire.

Anyway, thank you! You make my Wednesday morning's that little bit brighter, every week.

There is so much to see on the Internet and blogs. Many talented and creative people. Not all looking for a spot in the limelight. For those who look, this is a great idea.

Hilary said...

Thank you, everyone for your always kind and supportive words. You make blogging so much fun!

Joanna Jenkins said...

These are great posts Hilary. I'm still laughing over Autumn Desire's friend stuck under the bed! Ha!

Hope you week is going good.


Magazine Man said...

On behalf of my guest bloggers, Blaze and Thomas, a long overdue thanks for this mention and the one for Art Lad's stop-motion work. I was so jealous of them, I decided to make more of an effort to blog again. Thanks for inspiring me!
