What I Read 22

I hope you enjoyed last week's What I Read where I celebrated the Dads in the blogging world. There are some wonderful dads out there. I've been reading some fantastic posts over the past few weeks and my list keeps growing. Some of the posts I share may be from a couple of weeks ago but do please head over and read them. They're all great.

Morgan's Milieu: What I Read 22: Izzie Anderton of The World According to Izzie.

Izzie has been learning to let her children go as her daughter prepares to head off to the US, in Across the Pond. With my boys being just 10 and 6 years old I can't imagine this just yet. I think Izzie is so brave being able to do it, and I wish her daughter all the best. 

Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 22: Amy of Mr and Mrs T Plus 3

In her post Seizing the Day and why my husband calls me Lucky, Amy tells the story of her accident and recovery. It was a shocking read and makes you realise anything could happen, at any moment. Amy encourages everyone to make sure your family know they are loved, she also wants you to seize the day and chase your dreams. It's a great message to put out there and you should definitely read this post.

Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 22: Mel Greenhalgh

In Breathe in, Breathe Out, Now Relax - Part 2 Mel copes (well I may add) with stress. After a tough, and rather trying time, she heads into her yoga class and gets on with it. Mel's post made me laugh, and I hoped she'd get to her class on time. An entertaining post with humour and a great ending.

Blogging can be a stressful business and constantly worrying about SEO or stats can drive you crazy. Sometimes it's best to ignore what everyone else is doing and do what works for you. In fact I encourage you to do that. I loved a post over on Someplace Strange entitled Being my own Blogger, 20 lessons I've learnt from blogging. Instead of dishing out tips to raise pageviews Mrs Tubbs lists 20 things she's learnt, and I think it's great she's doing it her own way. 

Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 22: Maria of Collecting Memories.

When you're writing confidence is a huge part of your general outlook. If you're not feeling confident you feel like giving up on the book, blog, or article. As creative people we are often hit with the awful self-doubt demon and that can shake us to our core. Writing with Confidence (An Advice to Myself & Other Struggling Writers) is a fantastic blog post that talks about this very subject. The key word in Maria's post is 'strength', a great read.

Morgan's Milieu | What I Read 22: Susan of The Mommy Life

Reminiscing about old times is always fun and often leaves you laughing so hard you nearly pee in your pants. Susan wrote a brilliant post that had me giggling along and nodding my head as I read. The good ol' times. WAIT i'm only 35, was a brilliant look at the 'old' times and I really enjoyed reading. It took me back to my teen years and I found it interesting that she remembered much of the same things as me even though we grew up in different countries (she's in the US).
