Weekly Round Up and Favorite blog posts

I thought I’d start a weekly tradition of wrapping up my posts from the past week and also share some favorite blog posts from other bloggers. Hopefully, it will be a tradition. It may just be a one-off thing, knowing me.

Tuesday I shared my monthly 10 on 10 post, which is part of a blog circle with other photographers. We share ten photos from the previous month, from either one day, event, or subject, or simply our favorite photos from the month.

On Wednesday I rambled about what books I’m reading and some of the cons of getting back into reading – like forgetting to feed my children. Oops.

On Thursday I shared the latest installment in a story I have been writing, based on the story in the Bible about Jesus raising a 12-year old girl from the dead.

For some of my favorite blog posts from this week, (disclaimer: I actually read some of them last week, but I’m SHARING them this week, so hey, that’s how it works in my world):

Blessings by Me wrote this post about 5 Indoor Plants That are Hard To Kill. I found this interesting because I’m a plant killer and I don’t have hope that I could keep even the plants on this list alive. In fact, I’m pretty sure I’ve killed at least one of them at least once, if not more than once.

Michelle at The Green Study cracks me up because she puts such a creative spin on the highs and lows of life. This post, “My Misery Brought A Plus One” is one of the more creative posts I’ve read about being sick.

As a fellow mom, this post “You pretty, Mommy,” by Cheyenne on Chey’s Corner, gave me “all the feels” as people younger than me say. It’s a great reminder for mom’s that our children don’t see us the way we see ourselves. They don’t see the flaws or shortcomings. They just see the mom they love.

bryanI wouldn’t normally promote my brother’s blog because it gives him a big head (like the photo he uses for his blog header), but I did like his post for the Sunday Salon this week when he asked how people read but also WHEN do they read. His post was part of a link up of other bloggers who read or review books and then write about it on their blogs. Most of them are strictly book bloggers and it’s a great list of links where you can find some good ideas for new books to read.

So what did you post this week? Read any good posts by other bloggers? Let me know in the comments. I’m always looking for new bloggers.

In case you missed it | Northern Pennsylvania Photographer

In case you missed a few of my posts from the last two weeks I have put them in one post for you to find them. Because I am cool like that.

On Aug. 25 I gave you ideas on What to Capture at baby showers.

I also announced my mini photography and workshop sessions for parents in the Bradford County, PA and surrounding area.

On Tuesday of last week I offered moms some photography tips about getting on the level of their children when taking their photo.

This week I looked back at the end of summer and my weekly favorites and also offered more tips for moms, this time suggesting not always asking your child to look at the camera for photographs.

I also wrote about How social media sucks the life out of me and how I need to detox periodically.

To round out the week I shared a sassy photo of my almost two year old.

Next week I will have a 10 on 10 post, which features 10 photos from the previous month and is part of a blog circle with other photographers from The Bloom Forum (which by the way, is offering a 40 percent discount on memberships to celebrate the new design of their website). I will also offer advice on what to capture at a family reunion for my Thursday What to Capture feature.
