I don't do this often. In regards to blogging, in some strange way, even though it's all out there, I tend to keep things close to the vest. I write, I read blogs, I follow, I comment, but I'm not into the big splash of contests and awards and prizes. Not that I mind those who are, it's just not me. So as you read this, please know that I'm writing these words because in this case, I embrace the assistance this social networking or what ever it is, can offer.
Over the two years plus since I started Middle Passages, I've "met" so many people I admire, but I'd be lying if I didn't admit that some are more special than others. We all click with different people. In my case, Carolina Valdez Miller has been a regular champion. She's an astounding writer who has offered me such insight and encouragement. She sits at the top of the list of people I'd like to emulate--in my writing sure, and now in a more giving manner.
I'm not going to say much more. Instead, I'm going ask you to click here so you may read Carol's words yourself. If you can help--wonderful. If not, you'll find some amazing and passionate writing, and your day will be better for it.
