It’s Sunday again!
More awesome words that are not mine.
And then later today, words that are mine, because I am completely out of control.
Ian from I Carried a Watermelon
You may remember Ian from this post in which I raved about him. I adore Ian. At the time I put up that post, Ian was in the middle of shutting down his blog.
Because Ian is Ian?
He did not stay shut down for long. He has a brand new and hilarious blog!
I know! What the fuck?
You don’t need to give him shit about it . . . I already did. Gave him that big fucking send-off. Told everyone to follow him on Twitter because he was all done with his blog.
And then he pops up again.
Oh, look! I’m Ian and I am all contrary and I am not so much leaving after all!
OK, so I interviewed Ian for his About Page, and as you might imagine?
Ian is an awesome interview subject. Check it out.
Obviously, Ian’s new blog doesn’t have that many posts up yet, but he is awesome. The post I am featuring is one I have not even commented on . . . I thought I did at the time, but I guess I was giggling too hard and just thought I commented. Oops.
People? Ian is an acquired taste . . . but to me?
Erin from The Mother Load
Erin wrote a post a few months ago in which she named me as one of her new favorite bloggers. She sent me a note on Twitter expressing concern that I would object to being linked to the subject matter of the post. Silly Erin . . . it was a gorgeous and heart-rending post about love . . . I was nothing but honored to be linked to the post.
But because she expressed that concern? I think a teeny part of me felt like maybe she wasn’t quite ready to have hit “Publish” on that post. And so as gorgeous as the post was, I didn’t feature it here on Pretty All True at the time.
Which was so lame of me. The post deserved recognition. Erin deserved recognition.
I just worried she had made herself too vulnerable.
My bad. My apologies.
Because I read this post the other day, and I was all, “What the fuck? This is not a woman feeling tentative about sharing who she is. This is not a woman who would ask me if I minded being mentioned. What the fuck?”
And I went back to read the first post again. Wow.
Erin is amazing, and I am sorry I did not let you in on this fact back in October.
AmyLynn from PBJDreamer
AmyLynn is a brand new blogger. You may have seen her commenting here on Pretty All True in awesome fashion. AmyLynn is what we in the trades call wordy.
It was only a matter of time before she started a blog.
I have read all of her posts thus far, and AmyLynn is kicking ass over there on PBJDreamer.
The post I am featuring is so fucking funny.
Read what AmyLynn has to say about Facebook.
I am still giggling.
Go check them out?
So much awesomeness.
As always? These posts will be linked on the right hand side of my blog for the next week.
