Hey Emily! So I really love reading your blog and chatting with you about faith and feminism and books. I’m thinking about doing a series and trying to collaborate with some other women bloggers. I’d love to work with you! Could I possibly have an email address for you so I can tell you more about my idea? Or you can just email me at email@example.com. Thanks!
Hi Emily, I am a brand new blogger, and your blog has made me thankful that I chose WordPress as a place to begin. You may even be my mentor blogger. I also love to read, and I see that you enjoy John Steinbeck. Have you read Steinbeck’s The Acts of King Arthur and His Noble Nights. I loved the book, but the ending made me want to throw it across the room (of course I would not do that to a beloved book). I didn’t want it to end. My understanding is that Steinbeck died before he finished it. His wife (I think) gave it to his publisher.
Love your blog
Thank you so much! I do love Steinbeck, but I have not read that particular book. I bet it would’ve been better in the end if he had been able to finish it. I had a colleague who once threw The House of Mirth across the room. I liked it, however, and did not feel the need to abuse it! 😉 Glad you are here. I hope your blogging goes well.
Thank you for you kindness and your quick reply. I hope you can find time to visit my blog from time to time. Maybe in a year or two or three it will be better developed.
