*Updated October 4, 2011.
Karen’s blog is one of the first blogs I ever read. She is a very funny, talented writer and is someone I am proud to call a friend. Over the last few years she has experienced many life changes which she writes about at Life In The Dyke Lane. I am also honoured to write with her (about writing) at A Novel Place.
Heather is one of the best writers in the blogosphere in my humble opinion. She is passionate, eloquent and very funny. You can find out how good she is for yourself at I’m Not Hannah. You will also find her pagan blog very interesting. Check it out at Divining Women.
Groovy also writes one of the first blogs I ever read. She is a caring, kind person, and a devoted Mum who always brings a smile to my face. You can find her at Groovy’s Ruminations.
Meleah Rebeccah was one of the first people to comment on my blog ever. I’ll never forget the thrill I experienced when she left that comment. Meleah has experienced some major upheavals in her life but she always comes through with her sense of humour intact. You can find her at Momma Mia, Mea Culpa.
Steph is someone who I really relate to. She possesses a lot of empathy and sensitivity. I always enjoy her blog. You can find her at Absence and Presents.
Punatik was formerly living in Hawaii but is now in California. He writes Fragments Of Reality but not often enough for my liking. He is a beautiful poet.
Aine, also known as Texasblu writes Tiaras And Pirates. She talks a lot about her family and has taught me that people who share differing religious beliefs can find common ground and become friends. She also has a separate writing blog called Living In The Write World which outlines the trials many writers go through on the road to finishing that book. Good stuff.
Wendy writes Dream Fiction. Her writing often feels like it is a part of this huge dreamscape. It is evocative and moving. I am a big fan. You will enjoy her work.

Jason writes Fictional Mix Tape. His novel is famous on Twitter. He is one of the greatest guys I have met on the net and is responsible for the tagline on this blog ‘hard won hopefulness.’
Ms Squirrel is a force of nature and a force of fiction writing 100 stories in 100 days among other things. Always engaging, often profound, she is a very clever writer. You can visit her at The Querulous Squirrel.

Britt is someone I have watched become successful on the internet and as a writer. She shows all of us it is possible to follow your dreams. She is witty, warm and passionate. Don’t go past Miss Britt.
Then there’s Nanna, Britt’s Mum. She is someone you would want to have as your friend because you know she’d always have your back. I have learnt a lot from this brilliant woman. You can find her at Raw Simple Living.

She’s BACK!!! Bekki from Nectarfish – poet, photographer; she is quirky, jolly and fun. I love her blog. Her poetry is excellent.
Sons Of Thunder Patron is an excellent blog about cooking, music, poetry and hope. Definitely something for everyone. You should check it out!
I LOVE both of these blogs so much because they have donkeys. My cousin in Ireland has donkeys on her farm and they are the most adorable creatures ever. Obviously, I can’t have a donkey in the city so I get my donkey fix here:
I know you will love the donkeys too!
