Happy weekend! I feel like I spend all week looking forward to the weekend and then it’s over as soon as it began. (In other words, it’s too nice to be inside writing today. Let’s do this.)

Today’s Topic: Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends. What makes them great? Why do you love them? If you don’t have blogger friends, talk about a real-life friend or even a family member.

Every writer is inspired by others. When it comes to bloggers, I find myself in awe of others for a number of reasons – some are extremely brave, covering difficult topics that I would not be so public about. Others are funny, possessing an uncanny talent for turning an everyday event into an entertaining story. Some, I admire for their robust audiences (I know … all of us bloggers dream that one day we could have one-tenth the audience of other bloggers.) As a blogger, I try to share fellow bloggers’ writing – I can’t imagine how much amazing writing is never seen by more than a few eyeballs.

If you asked me to recommend a blog to you, there’s a good chance I’d tell you to check out Elizabeth’s Real Estate Tangent. For more than a year, Elizabeth and I “knew” each other; we had a number of mutual friends and we followed each other on Twitter. Last year, I was able to get to know Elizabeth a little better when we both attended BlogHer in NYC.

Reading Elizabeth’s writing is like talking to Elizabeth; she’s a remarkable storyteller. She’s a thirty-something mom to three boys, a realtor, a runner and an amateur ballerina/trapeze artist. She’s bright, intelligent, kind, hilarious and slightly irreverent.

Here are a few of my favorite posts:

Subscribe to Real Estate Tangent – you won’t be sorry. And then go enjoy your Saturday. It’s definitely too nice to be on your computer. (Unless you’re in N.Y. today.  In that case, it’s totally okay.)
