Love a Blogger Saturday #2

As promised, the Saturday after Valentine’s Day has arrived, and that means it’s time to introduce a few more bloggers I love and enjoy. Through the end of March I’ll be posting a few blogs I love and enjoy each weekend, and maybe you’ll know them, maybe you don’t, but I hope you take some time to stop by this weekend and see what they’re all about.



Olympians Rule!

http://olympiansrule.blogspot.com/

Okay, this one is a little weird just because this is actually the author blog of George O’Connor, who I do not fangirl about enough. This is the guy who actually convinced me that Hera and Zeus are awesome in their own right, and I am dying to read his latest book, Ares—in honor of which there have been a few fan art posts such as this and this and this and this—and I MUST KNOW WHAT HAPPENS. Anyway, posts are rare, but I always enjoy when the posts appear, because I. love. these. books.

And, if you want to get started falling in love, you can look at this post to see some fancy art.

Paper Fury

I love the way Cait writes. Like, I realize that she has over a thousand readers and that’s a pretty good indicator that a lot of people like the way she writes, but Cait puts character into her writing. I really enjoyed hearing about her NaNoWriMo experience, and I’ve really enjoyed participating in Beautiful People a few times. She’s a book blogger, and while I have enjoyed reviews like those for Ensnared or Trust Me, I’m Lying, I think one of her greatest services to me was demonstrating what book bloggers do—thus showing me why I don’t want to be one. I’m grateful.

She also recently posted a review of Fairest by Marissa Meyer and excuse me while I go choke on my longing.

T.T. Kesley

I feel bad, because for a long time I didn’t realize that Tara’s comments were getting filed as spam on my blog. However, it has not stopped me from enjoying her blog, which has dabbled with music lately (love songs and a Lyric tag), her own characters, and books/writing. She writes beautifully and rather succinctly, and probably my only complaint is that I don’t know if she has Twitter so I can’t mention her whenever I share one of her posts. Life is hard.

But, I still love reading her blog anyway: my favorite post I’ve read thus far was called Roots, and you should read it.


So basically, these are awesome people and THANK YOU FOR BLOGGING, to Tara and Cait and also George. Go visit them!

Are you familiar with these blogs? Are you about to make yourself familiar? Who do you want to thank this week for being an awesome blogger?

  1. I love Cait's blog. It always makes me laugh, but I usually end up learning something, too. Plus, Cait is agented, so I can look up to her as writer that is one step up from where I am. I also enjoy reading Tara's blog, although I haven't gotten around to it lately.

    1. She has a great balance between her informational data and her wit—and it's super cool that she's agented; it's cool that you can find a role model in her. Tara's blog is also great; she discusses such fascinating things. :)

  2. I love Cait's blog too! (and her writing. and her style. and her natural way of ruling although I will naturally usurp her.) I've also seen Tara once or twice around the interwebs, although I have yet to start stalking here. And I have actually not heard much about George O'Connor, but hey. Myths are totally my thing.

    Thanks for all the excellent recs, Heather!

    1. It's incredibly popular, no? She's a great writer, although I'm curious to see who will win in this battle for the world's favors—unfortunately, of the running competitions (I know that you, Wild Horse, Cait, and at least one more are all in the running) I do not think any will be successful. But that is just because of my villainy studies; think nothing of it.

      I hope you enjoy stalking Tara, and I would absolutely see if you can get a hold of George O' Connor's books. They are by far my favorite Greek Myth adaptations ever.

      Enjoy!

  3. I feel like I don't read any blogs xD I only know Paper Fury out of these three. I'm pretty sure I followed T.T. Kesley on Wordpress a while ago- but I don't read my Wordpress dashboard often.

    1. XD I'm sure you read plenty of blogs that I don't read, so... There you go. Cait and Tara are both great, though—definitely worth the reconnection. :)

  4. Aw, thank you, Heather! You're too nice. :) I don't have a Twitter although maybe I should start one ... **ponders** Now I really want to read George O' Connor because I'm not impressed by Hera or Zeus (particularly Zeus), but if he can really change my mind, that would be very interesting. :) And of course I love everything Olympian now, thanks to PJ. :D

    1. You're welcome! And you don't have to; I just think it's one of the easiest ways to share other people's blog posts. :) You SHOULD read George O'Connor, because I never thought he could change my mind and he did... I actually want to post about that now... Hmmm. Keep posted for that idea!

  5. AWWWW. :') I'LL JUST BE OVER IN THE CORNER BLUSHING IF YOU NEED ME. Hehe. *tackle hugs* I love T.T. Kelsey's blog too! I hadn't heard of the first one soooo *googles furiously* I want to read ALL THE BLOGS I just run out of time in my day. I'm totally stealing a time machine. Be right back.

    *whispers* I am trying to follow your blog but at the moment my internet hates me and won't load GFC. xD So I'll keep trying!

    1. WELL YOU CERTAINLY DESERVE THE PRAISE SO I AM NOT EVEN SORRY. Anyway, Tara has a great blog, and if you get interested in George's blog, you should really read his books, because they are beautiful and you must do it.

      XD Keep at it. If not, there's Bloglovin', email, or you could just not. It doesn't really matter. ;)

  6. I know Paper Fury and TTKelsey, but not Olympians Rule. I have to check that one out because I always find author blogs interesting. Plus, art! :3 Thanks for sharing.

    1. Alas, T.T. hasn't been around in a while, and that's sad. But Olympians Rule is still good, and I look forward to the new art every time!

Check it out, comments and stuff. I love to hear from readers, and I always respond to commenters! Here's the fun part—if you leave a link to your blog I'll show up and comment back. I have just one rule down here: Don't Be a Problem. This spans the entire umbrella of rudeness and crudeness, so I reiterate: Don't Be a Problem. Thanks for stopping by!
