Blog renaissance 

Shawn MacKenzie’s
“Llewellyn’s Little Book of Dragons”

Blog history 

Years ago, I produced week-long, special-event, promotional blog articles in collaboration with others. 

Over those years, I featured artists, writers, bloggers, other editors and proofreaders, sculptors, potters, graphic designers, jewelry makers, furniture makers, chefs, cooks, crafters, and more. 

The good feels

I felt good doing that. I want to do that again.  

Any time I can lift someone’s spirits – show their art or design or hard work – and share their passion with others, it gives me a warm fuzzy. 

It also helped me grow – in my perceptions and with creatives and their media around the country and the world.  

Resurrecting these partnerships

I would like to resurrect those special moments. Not in week-long events (man, that was a lot of work!), but with special events for anyone who has a book, artwork, or food truck launch or for creatives who simply want to share their special talents with my audience. 

All these blog features will be shared to my FB, Twitter, and LinkedIn.

Note – One of my greatest pleasures is when I present a guest in the best possible light. I will take more care with your blog appearance than with my own. I reserve the right to edit your submission.

Another note – This article was edited by Shawn MacKenzie. However, any mistakes that remain are mine.

    What a great idea? May I share it with select creatives I know? Of course you would always have right of refusal.

  2. Wonderful idea and thank you for the LLBofD plug. 🙂
