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

Twitter Spotlight: Emily L. Foley

Meet lovely Emily. I hope to someday soon!

emily2

Emily is a writer and beauty expert. She has a terrific blog and is tons of fun to tweet with, particularly about shows like The Bachelor.

She also has great enough hair that she’s not afraid to have her picture taken with the Connie Britton of Nashville and Friday Night Lights fame. Continue reading

Twitter Spotlight: Sarah Orsborn

First I found Sarah’s blog, Ernie Bufflo, which is named for a moniker she gave herself as a child. Twitter came later. Instagram too.

Our lives are quite different but I was drawn in by her writing. This woman is strong–you only need to read about her harrowing delivery of beautiful twins Etta and Claire to gain an inkling of that strength.

Any time I need a lift, I watch this video of Claire walking. You see, Claire has Spina Bifida so this walking thing took extra practice. Look at her go!

Meet Sarah:

After a month-long hiatus, the Twitter Spotlight is here to [hopefully] entertain you and to introduce you to another Twitter friend. I hope to get back to weekly posts with time but that counts on the punctuality of my lovely subjects so we’ll see!

Meet Kate.

What’s new with you, @aswinn?

I reached out to lovely Allison Winn Scotch about an update to her Twitter Spotlight from September 19, 2012. She kindly obliged.

Here are a few things that have happened since the last time I stopped by:

1) Oh, ain’t no thang, but I have a new book out called THE THEORY OF OPPOSITES, and it just so happens that Jennifer Garner has optioned the rights to make the movie. Like I said, just, you know, your everyday, run-of-the-mill news.
