Little Lov'n Monday

Little Lov'n Monday is a day we celebrate the work of fellow bloggers. Between now and Wednesday, post a link to an article, contest, interview, poem- anything you think deserves a little lov'n. Leave a link and be entered in LLM Giveaway. Deadline is July 10th. Winner announced on Saturday. I'll leave this open to readers outside of the US and Canada, but instead of shipping a book, I'll email you a gift card. It's too costly for me to ship beyond Canada.

Commit to visiting 5 blogs and leaving comments. If you do that, let us know. You might not care about winning a book, but I'm thinking you're a cool person who cares. Tell us that you shared some love. Thanks. Winner may choose a prize from the list or any previously offered book if it is available:
Water for Elephants by Sara Gruen
Airhead by Meg Cabot(YA)
Bean Trees by Barbara Kingsolover
Fluke by Christopher Moore (Hardcover)
A Tree Grows In Brooklyn by Betty Smith (beautiful anniversary edition)

Earn 1 entry for leaving a link to a post you think we should check out. Earn extra entries:
+5 for saying you visited folks and shared some love
+3 for posting LLM icon/link in your sidebar
+2 for blogging about LLM

Check these out:

So sad to hear about Pina Bausch's passing; I went and left a comment at Current Between the Shores; that was an excellent post.

On July 1, Brian of Brief Poems published something incredibly beautiful: http://briefpoems.blogspot.com/2009_07_01_archive.html

Not sure if Clutch is a blog or an online magazine, but this creative piece is definitely worth a minute of your time:

"BET, Why Do You Hate Us?"

I hope more folks start to speak out about BET's foolishness! The award show last week was a train wreck of buffoonery...

that article on BET was interesting.

I'd like to give a shout out to this article:

Netchick.ca has a meet and greet game on weekend to do something like Monday Lovin'

Okay, trying to get back to routine. It's Thursday but everyday is a good day to share some love. Whether you left a link or not, did you support your fellow bloggers?

Clutch is an online magazine, but they have blogs at the bottom. They even interviewed Alice Walker!

The life.culture has some great pieces!

Fluke! One of my favorites.

No bloggy love from me this week, as I'm on vacation with very little internet access. Just read your post about the death in your family, though, and wanted to say how sorry I am for your loss. Only 34? Heartbreaking.
