Blogfest: Oh, How I Miss You!

About a year ago I said I wouldn't get involved in blog fests anymore, that I was just going to focus on delivering great content. But, it was hard to resist this one. It's simple, easy, and a really great way to make another blogger smile.

Just like last year, based on Andrew Leon's excellent idea, Alex, Andrew, and Matt are hosting the ...

Oh, How I Miss You! Blogfest

Here's the scoop (if you're familiar with it you can just skip the italics):

The bloggers we miss… and the ones we would miss!

Do you have a couple blogger buddies who aren’t posting as often? Those who’ve pulled back and seem absent from the blogging world? Do you have blogger buddies you are grateful they are still around and would miss if they vanished? Now is your chance to show your appreciation and spotlight them!

List one to three bloggers you really miss and one to three bloggers you would miss if they stopped blogging. Then go leave a comment on those blogs.

Without further ado, the blogger I miss is:

Nicole Ducleroir @ A Significant Moment at a Time 

~Nicole still posts, but very very rarely and I hardly see her around much unless she's talking about her running and/or scuba diving. Kudos to her for following her dreams, but I sure do miss having her around as a 'writer'!

And the blogger I would miss is:

Roz Morris @ Memories of a Future Life

~Once a week Roz hosts a writer who uses music as part of their creative environment – perhaps to connect with a character, populate a mysterious place, or hold a moment still to explore its depths.

NOTE: There are so many of you that I've come to know over the past few years and if we never talked again, I'd sure as hell miss you, much more than you know, but thanks to email and Facebook, I doubt that would ever happen. So, this choice is based purely on blog content, not the relationship I have with the blogger.

  1. I love Roz Morris's blog too, and her book of course. It is hard to choose, isnt' it?

  2. Nicole doesn't post very often and I miss her as well.
    Thanks for participating in the blogfest!

  3. Life happens and then we blog about it. Nice post for the fest!

  4. Yes, they are both amazing women! Now that I think of it, I haven't chatted with Nicole in like forever! Hmm... I'll have to change that. (Psst...u are one of my MIA's. lol)

  5. I just followed Nicole recently. I really liked her last post about co-authorship. Thanks for sharing the peeps you miss! :)

  6. I don't miss Nicole that much because I get to hang out with her in real life. And soon you will too!

  7. If I ever stop blogging as often I hope I have a good excuse like scuba diving.

  8. I don't know either of them, but they sound like good bloggers!

  9. I can't even remember the last time Nicole posted.

  10. I remember taking part in a blogfest hosted by Nicole Ducleroir a couple of years ago. Not familiar with the other person.

  11. More blogs I've never heard of. Even though is rarely part of my writing environment, I will have to check that one out.

  12. I'm off to check out Roz Morris' blog. It sounds great.
