Weekend Linkage


Here are a few link-worthy stuff I've come across this week. I realized recently that I rarely share links. I'm on a mission to change that now.

  • Have you heard that the original Bloggy Giveaways site is now closed? I was so sad when I heard this news, until I found out that Laura at Heavenly Homemakers has stepped in to fill the void. She is going to be hosting a Spring Giveaway Carnival from April 27 - May 1. Make sure you stop by Laura's blog for all the details. And then get ready for the giveaway fun!
  • Ever since starting Cooking During Stolen Moments, I've developed a possibly unhealthy fascination with photographs of food. Taking pictures of food has become my favorite new hobby. Looking at well-photographed pictures of food is a close second for sure. If you enjoy "food porn" as much as I do, check out Foodgawker and Tastespotting. I could seriously spend hours drooling over the pictures and clicking through to all the recipes.
  • Isabelle loves to write and she especially loves to write on her blog. When I recently stumbled upon Homeschool Kids Write I was so excited! There is a weekly writing prompt and a Mr. Linky posted for homeschooled kids with blogs. Awesome!!
  • Can you seriously grow 100 pounds of potatoes in 4 square feet? According to this article you can. That's something I'll definitely be looking into this summer!
  • And one more very important one - have you checked out the Virtual Great American Bake Sale yet? There are so many yummy recipes to be found by clicking the links and the ebook has 170 recipes. All of the money raised through the sale of the ebooks, which can be purchased for any dollar amount of your choice, goes directly to Share Our Strength.

you've highlighted a few I've never heard of...fun, fun.
And maybe my guys will actually take pride in their writing and link up. :)

A Grammatical Disclaimer

I freely admit to consistently using improper grammar in the following areas:
1. I like run-on sentences.
2. I have a tendency to end sentences with a pronoun. (I really do. I can't help it.)
3. I always seem to use passive voice in my sentences. (See?)

I've been trying to break this habit, unsuccessfully, for years, so now I just accept that as my writing style, and since I'm not writing for grades anymore, I embrace it. (Again, see?)

Hence, I invoke Blogger Artistic License for this blog!
