Sunday Synopsis A to Z challenge: 21 April 2013

A2Z-2013-BADGE-001Small_zps669396f9 (1)This week has been something of a shambles with more technical problems. My writing and reading have both fallen behind so I’ll have a lot to catch up on this week. Meanwhile I leave you with only a couple of blogs:

Pick of the Week has to be my friend Kristin’s blog Finding Eliza as she has been listed as one of the Top 40 Genealogy Blogs for 2013. This is what Family History Magazine said about her blog:

Through family photos and old newspaper clippings, Kristin Cleage Williams tells the story of the family she’s been researching since 1963. Reading her blog takes you into the personal side of the civil rights movement—her father was a prominent minister—as well as efforts to combat segregation in the early part of the 20th century.

If you ever thought history was irrelevant or that your family had nothing to do with proper history, do read Kristin’s blog as it will change your mind – we all play our part, small or large.

Branches, Leaves and Pollen (Amy is writing about family history)

 Simply Sarah is writing a short, imaginative children’s story each day.

My apologies for this  short list…if you haven’t looked at my previous two weeks’ blog recommendations why not check them out.. 

Thanks to all those who’ve visited my blog, those who’ve commented, and especially those who’ve chosen to follow me. 

There’s some big adventures this week so I hope you enjoy the journey.

Sunday Synopsis 14 April 2013: A to Z Challenge

A2Z-2013-BADGE-001Small_zps669396f9 (1)Whew, don’t know about you but I started this week on top of the A to Z then it all went downhill with computer problems and other commitments. With so many blogs in the challenge this year it’s certainly a challenge to try to visit a representative sample. I confess there are some that don’t “speak” to me (eg fantasy writing) but then I figure there’ll be others who are right into them.

My Pick of the Week for the past week: Raising the curtain (a serious look at life with a humorous twist)

 I’ve been steadily adding favourite blogs to my Google Reader subscriptions so they’re easy to keep up with.

Here are some of the other A to Zers who I visited this week and enjoyed (if you missed last week’s list why not go and have a look): 

Life’s ride as I see it (motor bike fan on life)

My Rite of Passage (creative writing strategies)

I hope you’ve all had a good week blogging and visiting and that this week is productive. We’ve hit the half-way mark, we can make it to the end!!
