A request….and another request….

Some of you are already aware, but many of you may not know that my daughter (Magpie) is quite the artist and started her very own blog the summer before last.  We have had precious little time to spare since our family opened our cafe in March, but recently Magpie has gotten quite a bit more active on her blog and I would like to humbly ask those of my readers who are interested in seeing the work of a precocious 9-year-old to pop on over to Magpie’s Menagerie for a look-see.  She has a TON of stuff in the works–poems and art–and it would be great for her to get some more traffic and feedback.

And trust me, she’s not your ordinary 9-year-old (if there even is such a thing…).

Which leads me to my second request.

If anyone has any recommendations for blogs that SHE could follow, I would greatly appreciate any leads–other kid-bloggers and/or kid-appropriate blogs.  I keep a close eye on what she’s checking out but it would be nice for her to have some blog-friends that she can interact with without strict parental over-sight if possible.  She’s kind of nine going on forty so she’s capable of grasping some pretty heavy concepts but at the same time, daddy is, well….daddy.  You know….shining armor and all.  And swords.  Yes, very sharp swords.  One can’t be too careful.

Thanks bunches!
