Roving Robin Report – First Week in July

robin on branch chirping Opinions - photo by Scott LiddellBirdy Diamond here, your Roving Robin Reporter.

I have been tasked by the lovely Sarah to flutter around the web and bring back news of some of the neat & nifty things we birds (& the occasional bloke) are doing, so we don’t miss anything. (Or at least a lot less than we otherwise might.)



For those times when you just feel like giving up:

  • Kathryn Stockett
  • Three More Inspiring Stories of Success via Persistence

Thanks to Crystal Williams of BigBrightBulb for the lead!

  • And if you want a little more inspiration, note this: “Wow – 2 years in a row” from our very own Sarah Arrow about this very blog!


Take Action

  • Artist Ann Rea shares a great tip on pre-qualifying your prospects for your art in “Getting Permission from Art Collectors to Sell to Them”.
  • Social Butterfly & PicsieChick Teresa Deak shares how to “Show and Tell” our brands around the web.

Bridget Pilloud has a fantastically useful post about emotions & pricing. I read, I realized, I put into action! Go read & see if it inspires & informs you too.


Take a Break

Casper300zx: Damn #Emmit is being hella lazy. Get up fool! LOL
#Emmit shit goes out! and I stay in. lol Emmit meaning my cat.

  • Well, Chat Emmit certainly knows how to take a break! 😀 (Probably @DearEmmit does too, but I’m kinda afraid to ask him – he wields a mean squirty-flower! :-D)
  • Desisiter Filmi Girl has a lovely post series: “Bollywood for Beginners”. I’ve just started exploring this genre and its nice to know that her series is here to help me find my way! :>
  • And these art quilts from Carol Ann Newbill are simply stunning!
  • Momma cat adopts a squirrel pup
  • Cat nurses orphaned dog


Take Care of You

  • Havi Brooks of ‘The Fluent Self’ shares a wonderful post about the peace & acceptance found in the waters of “The Fountain”.
  • Alana of ‘Life After Benjamin’ shares a powerful post on the healing power of grief in “11 months“.
  • Nathara shares “I Love You”, a healing post on the wondrous that we all can be.


Flying Away

There’s more out there of course.
There’s always more.

But for now, I must away, to search out new goodies & delights for next time.

If you have anything you’d like me to include in upcoming editions, please let me know:

  • in the comments section
  • on Twitter @EncouragingBird
  • or the hashtag #rovingrobin.

If you have questions or comments on things you’ve seen here or that you’d like to see in upcoming editions, let me know those too. Again, comments or @EncouragingBird are good methods of contact.

Until next time!
Chirp, chirp! :>
