Relaxing With Some Blog Reading

I have a few hours to wind down after a busy weekend, and what better way to do so than by cruising through a few NESCBWI blogs?

Nancy Cote is an illustrator with a number of books to her credit. According to her blog, she gets around to functions such as Book Expo America and the L.A. Times Book Fair. The blog is updated infrequently.

Michelle Cusolito is a pre-published author with educational experience. Her blog, Polliwog on Safari, focuses on nature and travel.

The Tech Curmudgeon describes itself as being "General ranting about technology, design, and why I should be a billionaire." That does seem to be what it's about. I couldn't find any background info there on its keeper, Peter Davis, and I'm not sure what the connection with children's writing and illustrating is.

Karen Day is the author of three middle grade novels. Her blog isn't updated frequently, but when it is she's usually writing about what she's doing professionally, where she'll be teaching at writers' conferences, for instance, or linking to journals covering her work.

Stacy DeKeyser is another published author.   Reading, Writing and Chocolate is her second blog with that name and has only existed in this form since 2011. She doesn't update often, but her posts are either about her work or writing in general.

That's about as much winding down as I can take for one weekend.
