If we were having coffee, I would tell you I almost did not write this post. The little feller was up sick all night, and we’re laying about today. I started to save the post for tomorrow and spend the afternoon retweeting from my phone. But posts for linkups tend to do better when you get them in early, and really. At this point, the show must go on.
And speaking of retweeting. 1000 Voices for Compassion has its own Twitter account now, @1000Speak. I’ve volunteered to manage the following for the next week or two, and I’m giving some of the other moderators advice about how to get the account active without it taking a lot of anyone’s time. I’ve already followed a big bunch of you. If I missed you this week, just follow the account and I’ll follow you back. More news on 1000 Speak in the coming weeks.
I would tell you, too, that I have some exciting news on the Feminist Friday Project. We’ve spent the last few weeks collecting and revising the best of our posts from 2014 into an anthology for the e-readers edited by Natacha Guyot, with a foreword by Gretchen Kelly. Once it’s finished, it will be available as a forever-free download, and we are hoping to release it on March 8 to coincide with International Women’s Day. Once the release date is final, I’ll have a proper announcement.
And I would tell you that just in general, life is good, but busy. Diana is fairly wrapped up with a business project, and I am working to get all my blogging for March done and scheduled so I can turn my attention to the A to Z Challenge. It’s been an all-around crazy month, and I am not as far ahead as I hoped to be by now. But I feel like supporting 1000 Speak was the right thing to do, and I hope it turns into something more long-term; and Natacha’s idea to create an e-book with the Feminist Friday posts was just too good to not run with.
We’re finally having a nice day here, weather-wise, after a cold, wet, gloomy couple of months. The sky is clear and blue. It’s almost-but-not-quite warm enough for shorts and sandals. But I am sure we will have another freeze again soon, or some huge thunderstorms that send us all racing for our bathtubs. Ah, Mississippi.
I am finished with my (first cup of) coffee, and this is all the post I’ve got in me for today. Have a lovely week. Don’t forget to add your coffee post to the linky at Part Time Monster, and remember that sharing your link to #WeekendCoffeeShare will get you at least two retweets more often than not. 😉
