For now this page is simply a list of links to my other blogs. This blog’s organization will definitely evolve over time.
NOTE: For now, a few of these blogs are currently under construction or reconstruction, so if you visit, they may seem unfinished. Still, feel free to look around, and come back, because I hope they’ll soon be completed, and active with regular new posts. Thanks for your patience!
Links to Barbara’s other blogs:
Mystery of a Shrinking Violet (MSV) focuses primarily on books I read, writing (mostly fiction writing), books about writing, and some writing niches I’m currently interested in. I’m an introvert with a tendency toward shyness, thus the name. MSV is an update and refresh of an older blog by the same name that I kept regularly between mid-2004 and and the end of 2009. The new version of MSV will gradually recover some older posts as well that I find relevant, once I’ve updated them or checked for obsolete or broken links. Those will be backdated or revised to post as new articles. I’ll decide that on a case by case basis. In the mean time I’ll focus on books I’m reading now, as well as on thoughts about writing as a craft and a lifestyle. But the primary focus will be on books.
Swatches Yarns and Frogs (SYF) is another new blog. I’ve been involved in needle crafts even longer than I’ve kept a journal or written fiction, and I find it one of the most relaxing things I do. I’ve been wanting to share more of my love of knitting and other crafts, and SYF will be my place to do so.
Spirit Blooms (SB) is a blog I started some years ago as a place to study the Tarot, to post some of my poetry, and to blog about various interests that didn’t seem to quite fit my author/writing blog. Some of what’s there will seem dated, and some of it is more personal than you’ll find on my more topic-focused blogs. It still holds a place in my heart, and if you wish to visit it, you are most welcome.
