The Strange World of the Blog

is so strange that I don't even have a photo that would have anything to do with this post. Maybe this would do:

A map of Ancient Spain

So, about a month ago, a lovely person named Isabel contacted me and asked whether she could publish one of my posts on her Spanish journal. The post she wanted is titled Balance and I have no idea how she came upon it. It's actually one of my favorite posts, a tiny slice of a typical day in the life of me with my family, the seizures, some Chinese acupuncture and herbs, friends and carpool and a strange independent film thrown in. I told the Spanish princess Isabel yes, of course you can publish this in your literary journal. I would be honored.

And so it was. The journal is called Yareah, and it looks pretty wild.
Here's the link (and good luck with navigating the site -- it's a bit difficult, but I'm definitely in there on page 22). They've changed the title from Balance to PseudoFaulknerJoyceType. All I have to say about that is !!!!!! (I actually used those three names in the body of the post as a sort of joke). There's a header, too, written in Spanish. If you can, please translate it and let me know what it says.

It's a big world.


  1. It's actually one of MY favorite posts as well and I didn't even have to click on the link to recall it because I very well remember reading it and thinking "wow she is sooo good if only I could write like that". You are being published all over the place recently, and deservedly so :) I'm so proud of you :) :)

  2. Hey so great! I'll have to go read it. I love that you posted a Spanish map on this one.

  3. That is so cool!!!

    I found the link to your exact post:

    And, bonus, it's in English!


    Glad the whole world is finding your writing!

  4. This is so exciting. I couldn't be happier for you unless you were getting paid BIG BUCKS which you deserve.
    The blog world knows no boundaries, does it?

  5. That is so cool -- I was going to say I wanted to read the English version but I will use the handy link provided by endswith8741.

    Also, I loved the Halloween photos and I can't wait to try the powerdrill technique for next year.

    Congrats on your success in Spanish.

  6. Muy bueno! Usted una Senora muy intelligente y bonita!!!!

  7. I remember that post, Elizabeth. Breathless writing, moving post. I followed your link, and somehow got directly to an english version ... how disappointing, there was my chance to help you with Spanish:)! Congratulations.

  8. I can't get it to open! Darn it! I know its probably freaking awesome though.

  9. Congratulations! How exciting to be translated into another language. What a compliment!
