Happy reading Lipsters! And be sure to keep up with future Carnivals here!
Thanks so much for this carnival! I look forward to having a proper look through it.
Great carnival!! *clicks All The Links* 😀 Thanks for your hard work in putting it together 🙂
P.S. This week I sought, asked for and received care I needed and it really did make all the difference I needed at that point. (Re my blog contribution to the carnival on seeking care)
Thanks for including a couple of mine – this is a brilliant line-up and compliments on the crisp presentation!
Hi, I wrote the piece about failure, thanks for linking. Hard to tell because it’s tumblr, but Emilia Writes is the name of the blog, Emily Manuel is my name 🙂
Very snappy carnival! It’s great. Many thanks for your work putting it together.
Fantastic carnival. Some great voices I hadn’t read before too. Thank you.
