400th Friday Blog Roundup

First and foremost, before we get down to the Roundup Extravaganza, I want to thank everyone who Facebooked, tweeted, posted, purchased, emailed, talked about, and cheered on Life from Scratch when it was the Daily Deal.  It felt like my Bat Mitzvah; I felt so loved, so cared for.  You made me want to sing my Torah portion…  I mean, give you all a hug.  So thank you.  Thank you thank you thank you.


As I said last week, in lieu of the normal Roundup, in order to celebrate the 400th (which is really the 300th) Roundup, we’d have an extravaganza where people could honour the posts that have stuck with them over the last 100 weeks or so.  So, without further ado, the Roundup Extravaganza.  And no, the list isn’t closed; it’s just getting started.  It may take me a little bit to upload them to the list, but check back all weekend since I’m sure more will go up soon.  To add another post to the list, fill out the form.

The normal Roundup will be back next week, which means the normal second helpings will be back too.  So what did you find this week?  Please use a permalink to the blog post (written between June 29th and July 6th) and not the blog’s main url. Not understanding why I’m asking you what you found this week?  Read the original open thread post here.

I am not even halfway through the list, and I can’t hold back the tears. So many beautiful, touching stories. I love this idea, Mel, and thank you for doing this. I’ve got to take a break and sit with some of these moments, but I have a feeling I will be returning here often in the coming days.
