Salvete, amici! (That’s Latin for “hello, friends.”) I’m here today to share seven things that I’d love you to know about.
(Originally, this post was called “seven things.” Then I poked around in my archives and remembered that I have a name for this kind of post, which I completely forgot… check out the first Flotsam and Jetsam here.)
Note: The name is inspired by Tolkien, but the content is a general mishmash of everything (and I’m definitely not devaluing the things I include here by calling them “flotsam and jetsam”).
Here are some things I’ll be sharing in this post:
- a tag
- books I’ve read recently
- a snippet from my writing
- a blog post I love
- two of my favorite songs
- and more!
Let’s go! Welcome to flotsam and jetsam, round two.
1 // why seven?
Because it’s my favorite number, so I picked it (:
2 // my tag is making people happy
As you may know, I created a tag here. It was lots of fun, but the best thing about it is that people are doing it! Here are some people who did it:
I love seeing people’s lists of ten things that make them happy, but what makes me happier is that people keep commenting and saying that the lists of happy things also make them happy! (I know that’s confusing. But it was the point of the tag, and I’m glad it’s working.) If you haven’t done the tag yet, please do. I tag you. Go and do it and spread the happiness.
(Side note: I intentionally didn’t put “link back to the creator of the tag” in the rules for this tag. Because the point is not to make my blog popular – it’s to make people remember the simple things that make them joyful. Therefore, I may have missed it if you or someone you know did this tag. If you’re not on the above list but wish you were, feel free to comment your link so other people can read your list as well.)
3 // some books I’ve read recently
I’ve been wanting to post reviews of these books for a while, but since I haven’t really had time, I’ll be sharing them here. Read More »
