Sometime ago I wrote a post on Bottledworder called Three reasons I like to read not so well known blogs. In it I explain why I sometimes prefer obscure writers to already established ones.
I still like to wander around on my own tasting the blogosphere. I like to do these ramblings on my own as much as possible without pointers from the Freshly Pressed folk or others who are doing an excellent job but probably have their own criteria for selection. As a reward, now and then I come up with gems.
You are welcome to visit Bottledworder’s Facebook page and post links to your own blog posts or to those of others that you like!
Here’s what I found this week:
I. She thought, she wrote. by florenceadvocate
If I was to die tomorrow, would you think think of me today?
Would you like to hold my hand and tell me I’ll be okay.
I may not be the prettiest or the fairest of them all.
But I would love you better than anyone.
If you gave me a chance at all.
II. Who I Read and Why by SeattleAuthor
Here’s a sample from the post:
“When writers read–be it a book, an article, or sometimes even a headline–we study, parse, and edit. We re-word what we read (“It would be better like this”), we laugh out loud at ugly phrases (“He threw up his hands”), and we will kick a book across the room before we’ll read another page filled with moronic characters and Swiss cheese plots.
This can take a lot of the enjoyment out of reading, but on the flip side, there are joys in reading only writers can experience.”
