What’s new with you, @JunDishes?

While it hasn’t been too long since I featured @JunDishes in the Twitter Spotlight, she has been doing so much, particularly with her new venture Rice House that I was eager to bring you up to date.

From Jun, three new things:

1 – I opened the very first Korean restaurant, a takeaway joint, in Flanders: Rice House.

Aside from finances, Rice House is helping me share some of the Korean culture through food and conversations, with people here in Belgium. There are people still who associate Korea with only Kim Jong Un. Korea is about more than the division between North and South Korea. This is important to me because my son is half-Korean and at barely two-and-a-half, he recognizes already the Korean flag which adorns so much of Rice House.

At home I raise Noah as a trilingual child of mixed heritage, but Rice House now makes it easier to show that to him in a real way.

Twitter Spotlight: Daile Bree

Confession: I have a little blog crush on this week’s Twitter Spotlight participant, Daile. She’s got sass and even without makeup, she looks like this:

No makeup

Not fair, right?

She also has this adorable cat named Bixby who reminds me the darling Fitzroy Brandes.

Bixby

Better to crush on Daile than to be a jealous hater, I figure.

Twitter Spotlight: Lance Burson

It has been so hard to find men to feature in the Twitter Spotlight. Maybe you have noticed the imbalance. There have been some, like Isaiah Mustafa and Matt Feige and Rod Benson, but the female-male ratio has to be 4:1.

Fortunately for us, today’s Twitter Spotlight participant Lance Burson is used to being a man outnumbered by women. In fact, he has blogged about it.

Things aren’t much different at home where he lives with four women. In his spare time, Lance writes. He is the author of three books.

Twitter Spotlight: Amara Baptist

Kobe Bryant follows Amara Baptist on Twitter. Can you top that? I don’t think so.

Is Amara a huge sports fan? She is indeed. But she has also been a professional dancer. That takes dedication.

Get to know @Amarina27 in her own words.

Twitter Spotlight: Linda O’Grady

If you had asked me six months ago who my favorite Irish blogger in Latvia is, I would have looked at you like this.

Huh? What?

But now I get it because I found Linda and her blog. (By the way, thanks Aussa!)

Linda

Linda teaches English in Riga and I can’t help but think of her as brave. Latvia doesn’t seem like the warmest place in temperature and, well, temperament. But Linda soldiers on, and with great humor. Continue reading

Twitter Spotlight: Sarah Moon

If I could sum up Sarah in just one word, it would be bookish. Her love for reading and writing drives her career and her passion projects including Clear Eyes, Full Shelves.

But there’s more to native Oregonian Sarah. For starters: Her love of her husband, Josh, and their two dogs. Ukuleles. Teaching. Friday Night Lights.

Get to know Sarah a bit here.

Twitter Spotlight: Jolene Mottern

Joey as she’s known, warns us from the start: hers is one of those “disgustingly blissful” marriages. And even when Joey is speaking honestly about the messiness of being a parent, you can tell she has plenty of love and pride too.

Joey

How does she do that? Joey is just real–as well as a darn fine writer.

Get to know her here. Continue reading
