By in Persona Paper

It’s You. And YOU. And you and You and YOU!

Yes, it’s YOU. I said it and I’m not taking it back. I should probably explain, however. Lest you think you are in some sort of real trouble. Could be...could be.

Hard tellin’, not knowin’...

But NO. I wouldn’t say you’re in trouble, exactly. Let me explain.

Recently, I posted my Week 3 Persona Paper People Showcase post, which you can feel darn free and fabulous to peruse right here . I remarked that I wasn’t sure just how to handle letting folks know they had been showcased - simply because I don’t want to shove it in their faces or be all, “HEY, LOOK HERE, no HERE. SEE?”

And truly, the point of showing off fellow writers here at Persona Paper ( at Informed Sharing ) is to bring them out into the world for others to meet and greet AND for you all to get to find folks that you may not have known about, either.

So really, it’s not about THEM at all.

I don’t have to tell them. Let them figure it out whenever, right? We all know what’s going on around here.

Pfft. ;)


&AbbyG decided to help me along in my quest to gently nudge some folks in realizing they were famous for a time and so she wrote a piece about me .

Boy HOWDY that was squishy and a little goopy too. I got all hot in the face over all the nice things ya’ll said about me when really, the point was supposed to be about telling you about...


...and you and YOU and You, too.

But I was sincerely grateful for her message because it did help spread the word to several folks without me having to spank ‘em (you never can tell who enjoys that sort of thing and who doesn’t, these days) and I wanted to pass along my thanks to her for helping me out...

Oh, and I should probably explain the YOU YOU YOU thing, too.

It’s You. And YOU. And you and You and YOU!

Through it all, the mush and gush and goop of many commenting how selfless I am for showcasing all you fabulous writers, I managed to admit the...


It’s YOU. I’m doing it because every week I get to explore eight new (or old or new to me but maybe not to others) writers and then share them with the world - small as it is now, it’s growing daily, this world. Pretty soon, Persona Paper Peeps may just take it over.

That’s the plan, anyway.

Oooops. Side plan. Ignore that. For now.

So, yah. I get to do that. It’s totally selfish and completely enjoyable. A labor of love and unbelievably rewarding so far.

I thank you all for your kind words about how awesome I am for showing you all off but please, dear writing friends, keep in mind, I wouldn’t do it if it weren’t for YOU.

And you and You and YOU, too!

Selfish not selfless? Absolutely. Thank you all for that!

~ Cheers

SandraLynn you are one of the most non selfish people I know. You are always out there waiting to give others a hand in what ever is needed! Thank you for being who you are and what you have done for myself and others.

&AbbyG - it was a great post.

Nice of you to feature other members. I've read the posts and they were nicely written. For a change, great to see something like this instead of the me, me, me mentality in other sites.

SandraLynn wrote on August 15, 2014, 10:44 AM

LOL - I don't drink coffee and rarely anything else with caffeine in it ;) It's natural, yikes :) You did good, my dear!

SandraLynn wrote on August 15, 2014, 10:46 AM

Thank you :) Right back attcha emoticon :grin: Another great thing about this place, easy to find good folks here :)

SandraLynn wrote on August 15, 2014, 10:48 AM

LOVE you BIG, honey bunches. Always :) Enjoy your Grammie day and see you SOON (T-minus 15 days and counting, wooHOO).

Your selections are very helpful in introducing us to writers we may not have yet read...

SandraLynn wrote on August 15, 2014, 10:51 AM

I've always been a big (and good, sometimes, lol) sharer of things and especially regarding folks I find who interest me around the places I come to write. That I can take it to this level, here and there - is AWEsome. They say (whomever THEY are) everything in it's time...well, it's a good time, this for that :)

SandraLynn wrote on August 15, 2014, 10:51 AM

Thank you, John :) You summed it up perfectly :)

Close your eyes...breathe...easy...concentrate on your every muscle....listen to the soothing music...when you hear the bell....drop off into your own world and simply.....relax.... emoticon :winking: LOL Yeah, me, too.... :D

I think you have a gift for encouraging people and motivating them. It's wonderful you are using it here, but as you say, as Persona Paper grows, it helps all of us. We all ought to be doing a bit of what you are and helping to pass it along. Thanks to &AbbyG who has picked up the ball to pass it on. Who will catch that pass and throw it to another?

SandraLynn wrote on August 15, 2014, 3:31 PM

I'm not good at sports but that's a great idea - let's play catch :)

And thank you :) I used to life coach in a previous life - albeit a strange and unusual way that I can't discuss in mixed company. It was definitely rewarding. I love to help people and believe living positively is so much better than the alternative. My parents knew something by naming me Sandra (helper of mankind ;) ) ... maybe? Hmmm, just got all mushy there. Miss my 'rents emoticon :heart:

Quit speaking in tongues, lol. emoticon :heart:

i visited your blog and had a quick look at your wedding photos. Belated congratulations!

allen0187 wrote on August 15, 2014, 9:28 PM

&AbbyG , I haven't encountered them yet and I do not wish to. Dealt with them in bubble ooze and it wasn't pleasant.

SandraLynn wrote on August 16, 2014, 8:36 AM

Awww, thanks, Grace :) We had a great day and it was fun putting together the album :) Much more so than just throwing them up on Facebook ;)

I just read AbbyG's article, so I came to read some of your articles! I hope you enjoy articles that I post here!

I thought I was about to be drafted in the military when I saw your title.

SandraLynn wrote on August 18, 2014, 3:01 AM

I'm not in charge of that ;) LOL. Just some other fun stuff emoticon :grin:

Tuffy06 wrote on August 18, 2014, 3:14 AM

Oooh...I love fun stuff. I can't wait to see more of that. ;)
