I just wanted to say thank you to all of you who have continued visiting Hearthwitch Cottage and for those of you who have left such positive, thoughtful comments over the past week since I returned, I am very grateful.
Dragonfly J at Witchery Grove was kind enough to nominate me for a blog award earlier in the week, which is very kind of her. I have been blogging now for almost three years so many of these blog awards have come around and I've taken part in the past. I thought that this time, rather than doing the same again, I would take the opportunity to set up a little 'meeting circle' for like-minded bloggers.
I will name a few blogs which I have discovered and enjoy reading and hopefully it will give my readers some new places to fly over and visit. If I mention you here, consider it a 'passing of the broomstick': you can then take the opportunity to do the same on your own sites and hopefully it will encourage others to fly further afield and get to know others. Do let people know you are mentioning them with a comment or message on their site, so they can join in the fun.
So, without further ado...I introduce to you...
~ Zoe at Gypsie Sister for inspirational hand-made things, pretty photographs and thoughtful observations. ~
~ Cottage Tails for down-to-Earth stories of home life, the natural world and growing your own. ~
~ Yonks, who I have only just discovered, but who takes marvellous photographs and an eye for vintage pretty things. ~
~ Yarrow at The Holistic Home for nourishing recipes and a menagerie of adorable animals. ~
~ Robin Larkspur at Wiccan Writes for an insightful commentary on the life of a solitary Wiccan. ~
There are so, so many more wonderful blogs out there but that will do for a start.
