Self Taught Girl at Peace

It is a fine thing -- to receive, out of the blue, a helpful and friendly note from someone whose online journal you've long admired.  This week, I heard from Kate of SelfTaughtGirl.com.  By email, she explained to me how to make a "©" in .html.  It's very nice.

So it's high time I introduce you to the world of Kate, whose online journal is a well-written story that draws in many admirers, and perhaps even better, an online world of people who cheer for her every day.  It's a good, long-lived journal with regular posts.  No comment function, but you can write to her if you like.  Here's a quote from her About page:      

About Self Taught Girl:

I love reading people's "about" pages, and feel disappointed when people only write one or two things and then say something like "that's all". It's a studied sort of coolness that I don't have, I guess. Natalie Goldberg (my muse) says that people write out of loneliness and a need to communicate something about themselves or the world around them. Because this is exactly why I write, and because I believe that that's why 99% of the rest of the world writes, I don't understand people who fall short of explaining themselves. That and I'm incredibly nosey and interested in other people's lives, a habit I will probably never manage to break.

I can't figure out any permalinks, but try September 6, 2004 for a good entry about being, and September 24, 2004 about the pursuit of both health and health insurance.

Oh, and it goes without saying that I can't mention SelfTaughtGirl without sending props to my chica, Gina N., from whose Realm of the Lintqueen blog I discovered numerous fine peeps, including Kate.  And did I happen to mention that Gina knows many things?  And some things very well?  She is both fox and hedgehog.

And no props for the peep from whom you found the Kate? (Can I use "props", "peep" and "for whom" in the same sentence?)

:) Dinner soon?
