For some time I have been toying with ideas of how else to say thanks to my followers. I want to do it in a unique way. I like gifting. I like making gifts. I like surprising people in a nice way. Perhaps I could combine all that somehow. So here’s what I have come up with. I call it Soul Gifting.
What is it ?
Once a month I am going to choose someone from my followers and contact them to let them know they are being offered a Soul Gift. If they choose to accept, all I need is a mailing address sent to me by private email. What the gift is will be a surprise.
It is starting now – 15th March 2017.
How will it work ?
Much as I would love to, I cannot do this for everyone. It’s my way of saying ‘thanks’, no strings attached. It’s not a challenge. It’s not a competition. You are automatically in the draw if you follow my blog. I retain sole control and decision making. Once I have made a decision I will contact you to say you have been selected as a Soul Gifting recipient. Should you choose to accept your gift simply email me privately with your postal address. When I have posted the gift, I will delete your email. All you do is wait for the delivery. It will be a surprise.
‘Giftees’ names, a link to their blog (if they have one) and my reason for the nomination will appear on the list below unless you instruct me otherwise.

Candice Louisa Dacquin from The Feathered Sleep is May’s Soul Giftee. Thank you, Candice, for your encouragement, interesting conversations, thought provoking and powerful poeming and friendship.
♥ June 2017
Linda Bethea from Nutsrok has had me in stitches many a time with the tales she tells of growing up and her family. Not only can she tell hilarious – and true – stories from her life with a tribe of very colourful characters. She can also pen poignant historical stories based on real life. She’s a treasure and a delight. You’re it for June, Linda – thanks!
♥ July 2017
Jane Basil from Making it Write is it for July. Jane is a gifted writer. Her posts are raw, authentic, passionate, at times irreverently funny and witty. We have shared laughter, tears, grief, pain, outrageous political incorrectnesses – often found in conversations threaded through the comments.
Mara Eastern describes herself as a ‘sardonic blogger, snapper, scribbler and rhymer; a virtual space invader who indulges in cheerful negativism, morbid self-deprecation and bleak humour.’ She’s right. It is funny. We are as good as twins in the blogosphere having started around the same time. I should also mention she is the ‘custodian of a cat’.
