Saturday Shares is a feature on from the sticks to the bricks and back again that promotes deliberate re-blogging. What is deliberate re-blogging? A concerted effort to re-blog the posts of other bloggers deliberately and not randomly. I have found that I am less likely to re-blog because I might be reading someone’s post at a time that is inconvenient for me to post or comment. By saving links throughout the week, I can schedule my re-blogs instead of randomly re-blogging five posts all at once – a practice I find annoying.

Nous Restons Unis (United We Stand)
There I was standing in solidarity amongst my French friends as we gathered together to mourn a tragedy. For me, it was an attack on Paris and on humanity, but for them it had the added element of being an attack on home. We all felt a sense of loss, but the drive, the history and the emotion behind it varied. No one’s emotions are ever less than another’s, but they are, by nature, inherently different. I was standing in the crowd. It was an almost out of body experience. I was part of the moment but a bystander as well. I glanced around. Thousands had gathered. A sea of voices surrounded me, but they were speaking a language I only know pieces of.
