Old McKathryn had a blog, with a link link here and a site site there, here a link, there a site....

All right. It's Friday and time for links. And, as usual, if you have a blog post, or someone else's blog post you enjoyed/loved/were inspired by, or an interesting or informative (or funny) website - let me know and I'll post it on Friday Link Day. There are so many places I visit where I am blown away by the prose, poetry, artwork, the beauty and truths and wit and humor.
I was going to link some of the blogs I go to regularly where I laugh and smile and sometimes cry (and they are in my blogroll, too!), but I had so many links, I threw up my hands and decided to approach that in another way later...

First off, The Rose & Thorn Literary Ezine is going to be giving away Adnan Mahmutovic's beautiful collection of stories/poetry entitled REFUGE[E]. I read and reviwed this book, so you can read that HERE. How it works is, when someone makes a donation of $10 or more to R&T, they receive a copy of Adnan's book; that simple. He is a gifted writer.

Okay, I thought I'd include a "the most fun I had playing around post of the week" just because. Here is the Chesterdrawers still in the White House convo...Charles "Charlie" Gibson really did say something about all that was left in the White House was a chest of drawers....I just found that funny. I wonder what observations you all had? Or is that day already behind us, fading away as things settle in.

Good Man Roger and I have been watching PBS's Make Em Laugh... and we laugh.

I got this site from Angie Gumbo Writer... Cutest blog on the block -that's where my background came from.

And I was searching for unique business card sites other than Staples or Office Depot, and came upon the coolest business cards (and there is more, but I haven't looked at those things yet) ...Zazzle, and their Vintage business cards. I found and ordered some business cards and can't wait to see them. You can customize them by adding text and/or images. I'll let you know how they turn out when I get them.
Book love - the title says it!
Not to show my age or anything - but, I'm a member of NABBW - Dotsie Bregel started this organization a few years back and its membership and support grows. They are an active, supportive bunch and have a forum and etc. If you are a boomer woman, you may want to check it out!
And while talking about boomers- Oil of Olay has this new face stuff out: Professional Pro-X - anyone tried it? Would you spend the extra on it? Know anyone who has or will? Don't care, let the wrinkles come and be-damned it all? What wrinkles?

Check out Timothy Green's blog - he's an editor at RATTLE, Poetry for the 21st Century. Good stuff there.

This from NATURE really pulled at me...elephants...they are incredible animals.

Heifer International - I like how they handle their gift giving charity. But, charity-giving is a personal thing. I'm passing this link on only because I'd never heard of them until someone else told me about them.

And for a social psychology test from Humboldt U, click HERE. Why do I bother to take tests when I only prove how crazy I am? I'm a Pisces for gawd's sake...*sigh*

Dang - I have so many links, but I better stop here until next Friday. Again, if you have a post, a blog, a website, something you think would be interesting/informative/fun/funny for me to link to, let me know! And check out my "links and blogroll" - you'll see what I mean about the talent and beauty and truths out there in Blogland.

Don't forget to enter the book give-a-way contest outlined HERE. The book is BRIDA by Paulo Coelho.

All right - go Do the Day...

Kathryn, my writing about the photo is up today. Stop by:)

Janna Qualman said...

Thanks for all the great linkage! And in the slight chance you're disappointed with your cards, is a great place, too.

I have yet to work on my picture piece, but will tackle it this afternoon. Thanks!

OH! ELEPHANTS! You've seen my blog, right? I couldn't be more ele-phanty. I almost even named my blog that. If I ever wrote a children's book it would be a character named Elle Phanty. Any children's writers--go ahead, take it, I'll never do it...

My absolute favorite animal in the whole world. (Besides my dog because if I don't say that she'll pout.) They are so majestic and intelligent and misunderstood. I rode one once at the zoo when my daughter was little and I was petrified (of the height) but it was so cool.

Kathryn Magendie said...

Debbie - was there! saw it! am glad...! look at all those exclamation points!!!! ...!!! laughing....!!!

Janna - there's a whole 'nuther week! I don't even post them until next Friday.

Sharla - Elle Phanty *LAUGHING!*

Loved Adnan's book, love Tim Green's blog & RATTLE, and also Dotsie's a great gal...we have similar tastes. 'Magine that!

Amy Sue Nathan posted a cool link to Addictive.

Jenn Johansson said...

hello hello! I got the book today and I'm so excited to read it! :D I made it back from Vegas and now I need to relax and do some reading I think. I always love your links posts. SO many good places to visit out there, aren't there?

Terri Tiffany said...

Love the Go Do the Day! I certainly plan to! Thanks for the business card link--I get bored with the one I use now! Enjoy your day too!

Kathryn Magendie said...

I'll check that out, Ang (and imagine that! laughing....)

Jen - YAYYY!! ...enjoy!

Terri- they just shipped them, so I can't wait to see how they look - *fingers crossed*
