31 Blogs You Might Not Know - Anne Bustard


Anne Bustard's blog, Anneographies, highlights picture book biographies tied to the subject's birthday. Isn't that a brilliant idea for a blog? Of course the first thing I did was go to my birthday to see if there was a picture book on one of my birthday twins, Ernest Hemingway or Robin Williams, but alas, July21st was blank. But many other days of the year were filled with some great picture book biography choices like July 16th, my son's birthday. (He just happens to share it with Ida B. Wells-Barnett) and August 27th, my daughter's birthday (coincidentally, it is also the birthday of former president Lyndon Baines Johnson.)

This is a great blog for teachers to bookmark for when they need ideas for those pesky bulletin boards.

Tell Anne I said hello when you stop by.

Brilliant idea! When I first started my blog I highlighted authors and illustrators on their birthdays. I gave this up for other pursuits. I

Curses! Another blog for my feed reader!

It's hard to keep up with all the author and illustrator birthdays. Do you know about the Children's Literature Network? (http://www.childrensliteraturenetwork.org) They keep a master list of a great many author/illustrator birthdays.

smack between Seurat and mark Twain. Great neighbors, but nothing for Dec 1. What a great idea for a blog. Thanks for pointing us to it, Susan.

WHO AM I?



Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
