Blowing Some Horns

Guest posts on a blog are a two-way street.  They’re great when someone writes one on your blog, giving it a different feel, maybe even a different point of view from your own.  It relieves stagnation (as if my blog, or yours, could ever suffer from that affliction!).  They’re also great when one of your blogger friends ask you to write a guest post for their blog.  You get a good feeling, and it’s Sally Fields at the Oscars all over again — you like me, right now, you like me!

Chatting with Miriyummy: Hannah Katsman

Meet Hannah Katsman.  Hannah is a very busy woman.  I am a huge fan of both of her blogs.  Yes, the woman writes two blogs, among other bits and pieces and major articles.  I sometimes wonder where I am going to find the time for my one piddly blog, and Hannah manages to write interesting posts for both of her blogs, Cooking Manager and A Mother in Israel.
