Weekly Round-Up



Time for this week’s round-up of the best of the blog posts which I’ve read over the past week. These are the posts that have moved me, taught me something, inspired me, and which I’ve wanted to share with you. Don’t forget if you have written a post which you would like readers to see, just leave a comment below.

I love that Nancy Siebel took up the writing prompt from last week’s round-up   – “what are  your dreams telling you?”

Jana‘s post on baggage is all kinds of wonderful – especially for those of us getting back in the dating game.

Creative despite cancer? Don’t forget that Karin offers to showcase what you do on her website – get in touch with her to learn more about being featured on her site.

On the same theme of creativity, check out the series of guest posts featured on Ticking off Breast Cancer – including Sara‘s own post on writing through cancer.

I am really enjoying reading Julia‘s memoir  – you can read the latest extract on her blog. This week she talks jobs, work colleagues and a change of pace.

The fourth quarter of each year is an important time for nonprofit organizations to begin “the ask” to bring awareness and raise funds for their cause but how do you give to nonprofits during giving season? Terri has some suggestions in her latest post.

Super tips this week from Nancy Stordahl on strategies to increase traffic to your blog.

Love this haiku from Elaine:

Leaves, colors of warmth, even
As they fall and die

Another wonderful post from Connie reflecting on the obstacles in our path that may have barred our view of our goals.

In her latest post, Barbara shares why she believes the doctor/patient relationship is the most important aspect of feeling positive throughout treatment.

Becky is preparing for back surgery.

Maureen ponders her perspective on “luck” in her latest post.

Abigail reviews a new book on menopause.

Janet shares thoughts on making incremental changes towards a healthier lifestyle.

Great posts from Carolyn and Siobhan on the paternalistic attitudes to women’s health and the damage it does.

Finally this week, I leave you with this wonderful quote via Audrey‘s post on pink ribbons, black dogs and equity.


Until next week,

Yours with much love always,
