Link Love June 21
I wasn't going to do Link Love this week. Usually I have come across sites all week so when Friday comes I am just about finished. Not so this week. I had to write the post on Wednesday because of a routine outpatient thing I am doing on Thursday. Didn't know if I wanted to spend the time, but I am glad I did. I found some fun things I know I want to try out.
So you might wonder how I find people. I belong to several art groups on Facebook and sometimes I get links there. I also go through blog rolls on blogs I follow looking for good links. Or I search out Twitter or Youtube and use their recommendations or search on a subject. The fun thing about all this is I get to find things I like too, that I didn't know about. It is sort of an adventure, a treasure hunt to see what people are doing on the net. I hope you enjoy looking at these.
This weeks links are
