@ShareenM has done a magnificent job of rounding up new #LinkYourLife voices each week. High-five, soul twin! I have spent a good portion of my day scrolling through links and I’m not nearly close to finished. What I’m finding is incredible honest I’m thoroughly overjoyed to witness. Here are a few highlights. Read and read again. These should not be missed. I was struck by BATTLE FOR SANITY–LIES THAT SAVE YOU by @KyrianLyndon. You know I work largely with survivors or on survivor issues. This piece hit home. I See London, I
There are so many amazing hashtags to make use of on Twitter. Here are some of my favorites. Of course, #LinkYourLife is my personal first choice, but there are several that are just fantastic. Not sure what to do with hashtags? Look up the rules for the tag, share a link or image that applies, and include the tag at the end of your tweet. Make sure to tune in to what others are sharing under that tag and retweet any gems you find.
Friends, we did it. We grew #LinkYourLife beyond anything I can keep up with in a roundup. By teaming up with #BluSkyFriday, we more than doubled participation and readership. While I would love to link you all right here on my space, I think I am going to have to take a lesson from #1000Speak and #WeekendCoffeeShare and create a master space where you can link yourselves. In the meantime, I am toying with the idea of a “best of” or highlighting links from random time periods throughout the day.
I hope you enjoy this collection of #LinkYourLife posts! It’s a fantastic roundup with some welcome new voices. Be sure to search #LinkYourLife on Twitter, as contributors have tagged images not represented here. I would like to invite all contributors to link your social media and personal websites in comments below. And for newbie Lifers, you can find the hashtag rules and previous roundups here, but this is the gist: Your heartfelt, your humor, your headaches, your love sprains, your wisdom & mistakes, your work, your truth, your REAL: #LinkYourLife!

What a week! I’m sorry to get this up so late, but better late than never. Tomorrow will be the third #LinkYourLife event, so I am happy to squeak this one out under the wire. @allisonmaruska’s writing story started with a truck. @ShareenM honors her husband’s unrelenting support through chronic illness. @UlaWrites composed a beautiful reflection on impermanence and grief. @Ruebi shared “Hold your breath and count to ten.” @rksteg linked an important post on escaping emotionally abusive relationships. My share (@shawnamawna) was my inclusion in ART SAVES LIVES INTERNATIONAL. Some of you
As #LinkYourLife grows, I thought I would take the time to do a roundup of posts shared. This week was a small group of powerful writers. I hope you enjoy these pieces if you missed them. @JennBerney shared her story of how asking for sperm can be awkward. @ShareenM would have died on the bathroom floor if her estranged sister hadn’t saved her life. @KimGANEPossible logged the journey she and her husband travelled to reach their taco truck dream. @Ruebi_LHB shared “The frustrations of the Migraineur,” an examination of life with migraines. @allisonmaruska wrote
I created a hashtag on Twubs called #LinkYourLife. You can join the Twub here, or employ the tag on Twitter. Use it to share work or moments that best capture who you are. I want to know who you are. Let’s meet up every Friday to link our lives, share each other’s work, and form more lasting social media connections. Online connections can be glancing. Let’s get personal. What you should link: Who you are, what you do, and a piece of work that you feel best represents you (blog, publication, poem, story, etc.). Work
