Episode Fifty One – Home For Christmas

Hi everyone, and happy Christmas, Hannukah or whatever other celebrations you may be involved in!

As you’ve probably noticed, I haven’t posted in a long time – again. I didn’t post for a while before I came home from Costa Rica, and since then it’s been Christmas central around here so I’m only just now sitting down with my computer to give you all the love and attention you deserve :P

Saturday Spotlight Four – Meine Lieblingsblogs

Wait… Isn’t an allophone something else? Jenny, I need your help!

So today I’m going to write my Saturday Spotlight on Wednesday, and keep it for later. Why? Because on Wednesday (today for me, three days ago for you), I received yet another boost to my blogging confidence. The first was that I was invited to be a contributor to a much bigger and more widely-read blog than my own, Raxa Collective, to which I’ll probably be posting again on Saturday (today for you, in three days for me).
