There are some bloggers whose names bring a smile to my face. Sally Cronin is one of those names. I’ve known her several years now and I’m among her many fans at Smorgasbord Blog Magazine. It’s a huge blog that posts often, and she’s absolutely an inspiring woman to spotlight here. We recently featured her short story contribution to the anthology iQue entre la luz! Thus, her name may sound familiar because of that. Or it may sound like a familiar name because she’s very well known in the blogging world. And her blog recently turned 5 years old!
How do You Celebrate a Legend?
But with numerous books and blog posts, what exactly is the best way to celebrate legendary Sally Cronin? I’ve been pondering it for days now. An interview? Or a description of her books? An overview of some of her top health blog posts or short stories? None of them seemed to do her justice.
Then I realized it. Rather than me going on and on about her kind spirit and great writing, it would probably mean more to hear from several of us who have a wonderful memory to share about an experience with her. So, how about I start the comments with a personal story? Then I hope you will share a happy moment you have with her too.
Sally Cronin Humbles Me
I remember when she shared a book review I had just received for my latest book. This is a review I shared in an excited post on my personal Facebook profile. Then Sally included that new review one of her famous author roundups. I was stunned. How does a woman who has such a huge social media following and well-known blog possibly have time to read my Facebook update? It was a huge and wonderful surprise!
And this memory illustrates to me what makes Sally Cronin and her Smorgasbord Blog Magazine so inspirational. Furthermore, she continues to take the time to build connections and highlight people, never thinking herself above us for the popularity she has. And she has a knack for pointing out authors’ accomplishments, which I love about her.
About Sally’s Latest Book
The queen of Magia and her court have fled their sun filled Spanish homeland and the palace beneath the magnolia tree.
Arriving on the backs of geese and swans, they seek sanctuary in the magic garden of The Storyteller who welcomes them to the Emerald Island, a place where rain is almost a daily feature. Grateful for their safe haven and the generosity of their host, the queen and her courtiers embrace their new surroundings with delight.
As the seasons change throughout the year, they come into contact with many of the human and animal inhabitants of the garden and the surrounding forest, all of whom have a story to tell. This is a magical fairy story infused with fantasy and romance, as well as opportunities for mischief in the company of goblins, witches and Lerpersians.
Tales from the Irish Garden is suitable for ages 10 to 100 years old. The illustrations are by artist Donata Zawakzka.
