Thank you for including me, Anastasia! It's great to see my name along-side such great women!
What a rich list. I predict I'll lose some sleep tonight over it. Your subject matter interests me, as my upcoming novel is about an American woman trying to make a go of it in Thailand and my blog is a lot about reflecting on women traveling. www.zoezolbrod.wordpress.com
Thank you for including me, Anastasia! I'm also very much looking forward to the forthcoming Art is Dialogue project with expat+HAREM.
What beautiful write-ups! As an American living in China, the subject of these blogs is very interesting to me. Thanks for taking the time to highlight them!
Connecting with the expat writers community through your expat+HAREM has provided me with important insights concerning my own position abroad. I've also landed here, at SW thanks to links in your blog posts.
There's such a distinctive difference between writing as a journalist or creative writer and as a blogger whose aim it is to create community.
As Rose Deniz states, ""Art is Dialogue".
The first time I read the guidelines at expat+HAREM I was puzzled by the open-ended post request.
Now I'm starting to get it, an open ending invites people to comment.
As I tweeted yesterday, it's hard to write an open ending when you like to have the last word.
The trick must be to reserve the last word for an other medium or platform, such as a book or newspaper column, and keep on inviting people into your blogger's realm by giving them the "go ahead".
