I LOVE MAIL: e-mail, snail mail - you name it – I love it! My daughter and I, both, fight to open the mailbox, spam folders, and who could resist circulars?! So when I receive a really, kind e-mail from a reader, I ask the sender if I can post it to my blog. I do this for many reasons (ego is probably somewhere swirling around), but the main reason is that it validates for me, what is important for my readers. And after nearly/almost 5-years of blogging for School Library Journal, I am grateful for my readers. Yes, another hint.
Here’s a recent letter from Nilki, one of my new readers who gave me permission to repost her letter, and who made my day during this ‘hellish’ week. Thanks, Nilki!
I’m a recent reader of your blog Writers Against Racism, and noticed you had a wonderful blogroll for blogs that support, among other things, writers of color. I wanted to invite you to see my blog Musings where I offer support to beginning writers while promoting primarily writers of color. I also edit for Diversify Your Reading a wonderful blog that provides links to book reviews about books written by authors of color. I would appreciate if you would consider the two blogs for your blogroll, I have certainly added yours to Musings.

Many thanks for all the wonderful things you are doing.
