In which I write about friendship, parenting and survival

Last week was a week of travel for me. I had several wonderful guests volunteer for my Friday series which means I was guesting in their online houses. It is so exciting to have my work accepted and published by these amazing writers. Keep reading to find my pieces, stop in and comment (please please please).

I already announced my latest guest spot with The Relationship Blogger. Raymond prompted me to write about my experiences with faith, ethnicity and assumption. I talked about fetishes. Read more here. 

Thomas Ives of Bestowing Fire also offered me a guest space. He published an essay I wrote on the choices I make every day when it comes to my story. I admire Tom a great deal, so it was very exciting to be able to talk about what his hashtag #ShareInspireConquer means to me, and to all the people I work with who are actively surviving their stories. Please hop over to read the full piece!

Sarah Fader also published a guest essay of mine on Old School/New School Mom. In it, I talk about how I have a tendency to approach all my friendships as all or nothing. Because I talk about something that still feels raw to me, that piece feels very vulnerable, but I can’t imagine a safer space for that bit of my heart than with another writing coach. And I’m very happy to have written my story because, chances are, it’s your story too. Please read it here.

I have a few more guest spots coming up. Please be sure to stop in on Fridays. The guest series  (you can join in!) happening here on The Honeyed Quill is mind-bogglingly spectacular. I can’t wait for you to see what’s in the queue!

Don’t forget, if you’ve guested here or you just love this space, grab a button for your site. Find a selection here. Choose what best suits you.
