You may have noticed #LinkYourLife just went through some serious visual rebranding. It started in the Facebook group with new admins, each of whom has their own supportive thread (or threads) or host throughout the week. With the new graphics, we have already seen greater engagement and more linking. Many #Lifers have a #LinkYourLife button already present on the blog. It links back to the original #LinkYourLife post, inviting artists of all types to join the movement, forging deeper connections that go beyond the page. The #LinkYourLife community is amazing

I have been a fan of Alexis Donkin’s work with global compassion for the last year. I started reading her memoir, Thrive: How I Became a Superhero, and knew immediately she was tribe. In fact, we connected as two writers whose goal is to sow seeds of compassion beginning with self-love. Alexis writes with intention, with respect for herself and the reader, and with incredible open-hearted love for the world. When you need a hug or to know you’re loved, stop in at her site. Seriously. Recently, Alexis launched an

I have struggled in mightily in my marriage. Part of this is due to surviving violence and sexual assault. Part is finding my partner in high school and the two of us growing up together. My husband and I have worked very hard to create a thriving marriage. I have been invited to create a guest post on this topic, so more on that soon. What I want to mention right now is this: Bret and Christine Eartheart are a super couple that has helped us smash patterns of codependency

Several months ago I put out a call for guest writing. It has naturally evolved into a survival series here on The Honeyed Quill. Since I work with individuals on surviving their stories by writing for release and recovery, this makes sense. It still surprises me, though. Every time I scroll through my guests’ work, I step back and marvel at not only what I am trusted with (I coach each piece that comes my way which can take weeks or a day depending on the individual’s relationship with their story),

Building Open Thought Vortex has been a labor of love with Shareen Mansfield. This year, “Jesus Would Have Let Me Cry On His Shoulder” by Juliana Marcelle Crespo was Freshly Pressed by WordPress, meaning it was picked and publicized as a top read globally across WordPress sites. In what we have learned is quite rare, OTV has been selected as a WordPress site to Discover in the same year–the first year of our publication. This is no small potatoes news for us. OTV is self-funded by Shareen. Together we work

by Thomas Ives A Note from Shawna: I asked Thomas Ives, #ShareInspireConquer pioneer and inspirational blogger at Bestowing Fire, if he would please contribute some writing to my site. Thomas is an incredible individual whose goal in life you will find below. He reaches my heart with all of his work. He is supportive beyond the page. He is yet another wonderful person I’ve connected with through #LinkYourLife and I couldn’t be more grateful. I am so glad to know him and delighted to share his voice on The Honeyed

A note from Shawna: I was chatting with Raymond Baxter, The Relationship Blogger, on Facebook when he began sharing the aspects of #LinkYourLife he most enjoys. He told me he has run support groups and that our Facebook group was what a support group was meant to be. That had me excited because the whole goal of #LinkYourLife from day one has been to connect on deeper levels, to support and raise each other by truly getting to know one another beyond the blog, beyond Tweets, and beyond Facebook shares. I

Yulia Azriel is a Bloomington yogini who runs Gentle Heart Yoga and Wellness in Bloomington, IN. She regularly offers wellness retreats along with her husband, Gabriel Lantz. Yulia intended to lead yoga at one of my retreats, but our schedules didn’t match up. Instead, she created this amazing video so that all of my students can continue their trauma work from home with a reusable grounding tool. Originally, it was going to be shared only with class participants, but Yulia is the gentle heart she named her business for, and she

Here are the revised deets: One of you #LinkYourLifers is going to get a $50 Amazon or cash gift card (you choose), but we want you to work for it just a little bit. You can do this if you’re new to #LinkYourLife as well. Here’s how it goes: Write a post short by or long about any of the following and publish it by FRIDAY MAY 27: what #LinkYourLife means to you, how you heard about it, why you keep coming back, what you gain, friends you have made or any

The Carrot Ranch Flash Fiction Writing Competition was pioneered by Charli Mills and the Rough Writers, a fearsome band of a buckaroos who ride by their own rules and write with style. I reached out to Charli many months yon to ask if she might help me birth a dream for our family: to raise money for Noah and his service dog, Appa. Her immediate response was “Yes!” and she rallied her Writers. Geoff Le Pard, Pat Cummings, Norah Colvin and Sarah Brentyn saddled up as judges for this competition.
