Stream of Consciousness Sunday LIVES!!!

Last week, as some of you read, I decided to stop my run of hosting the weekly link-up for Stream of Consciousness Sunday. And it’s an understatement to say I was surprised by the reaction. I had no idea how many people liked to read. And how many others maybe didn’t participate, but liked the option of knowing they could participate if they wanted to.

And it felt like a sad break-up. But I try not to be a fickle sort. I try not so say, Okay, you guys. I changed my mind. I was just messin’ with you. But you made it so dang hard.

I didn’t want to see my baby die a slow death but I certainly didn’t want it to be quick and tragic end leaving so many of you wonderful writers wondering what to do on a Sunday morning.

So after a few offers, I considered turning over the reins.

My dear friend, Nichole from Butterscotch Sundae offered up her blog as the new home for Stream of Consciousness Sunday. I love Nichole and I was honored that she would want to carry this tradition on. Plus, her blog is really really pretty.

And Alexis offered up her blog. Alexis is a new blogger (but not a new writer) who writes over at Lillie Belle named after her grandmother. She wrote me such a wonderful email that I almost passed the torch to her. (Please make sure you stop by her blog and keep her encouraged!)

But it was Jana, from Jana’s Thinking Place, that I thought would be the perfect fit. First of all, I love love love Jana’s writing and having met her in person, I adore her as well. I’m pretty sure, though I can’t be 100% percent certain, that I really “met” Jana through Stream of Consciousness Sunday. She was one of the first “regulars” and I really got to know her and her blog. She was one of the first people that made me realize that this community was more like a family and I really noticed when people weren’t stopping by to link up.

So thanks to Jana, Stream of Consciousness Sunday LIVES!!!!

Just not on my blog anymore. It’s right HERE instead.

Do me a favor? Visit Jana and show her some love. And maybe, just maybe, you’ll decide to dump your brain and share it with her.

The best part for me? Maybe I’ll wake up and participate too.

    • FadraN

      Me too :)

  • Nichole

    Aw, thanks Fadra! I’m glad you found a new home for your brainchild!

    • FadraN

      Thanks for offering to take up the reins. I’m glad it will live on!

  • Andrea B

    I love it! What a perfect place for it to move to!

    • FadraN

      Isn’t it? I love Jana and her writing. It’s perfect!

  • Dominiquegoh

    • FadraN


  • Tricia

    Yay!!! I came here this morning hoping for just this sort of news :) Congrats to you, Fadra – your amazing idea lives on!

    • FadraN

      I’m so glad that Jana will be able to fill my shoes!

  • Jana Anthoine

    I’m beyond honored to be hosting SOC Sunday now. Thank you for trusting me with your baby! 

    Come on over, y’all!!! 

    • FadraN

      I’d call this a smooth transition :)

      • Jana Anthoine

        I definitely would!! <3

  • Kenya Johnson

    All I have to say is WHEW, and YAY. But I really did get excited and had to read the line twice that said “just messin'” before I read on. It means a lot that you passed it on to someone and that they asked your permission. I don’t think I would have been so loyal with anyone who just “took it upon themselves”. Cheers!

    • FadraN

      When Jana approached me, I immediately though YES! It’s such a perfect fit AND I can participate and still be part of the community!

  • Scargosun

    Yay!  I was kinda hoping for this. :)

    • FadraN

      I just couldn’t let it die…

  • Michelle

    Awesome! Awesome! Awesome news :) I’m one of those those that for various reasons doesn’t participate every week but I still like to visit the blogs of those that do and link up when I can! 

    • FadraN

      Well, I’m sorry you won’t be reading them through my site but I’m happy you’ll still be reading them!

  • Alexis

    I really appreciate that you considered me to take the reins. That means more to me than I can say. It’s so wonderful that you found the perfect home for SOC Sunday. I look forward to actually doing them instead of just reading everybody else’s.

    • FadraN

      I actually really, really appreciated your email. I actually want to respond to you in more detail because I think you’ve got some interesting blogging challenges ahead of you!

  • Neeroc

    Hi Fadra, I’m very glad to have ‘met’ you through SoCS, having just recently taken the plunge, and while I’m sorry that you won’t be continuing, it’s in great hands with Jana…I’m also glad that I’m soooo far behind in my blog reading (you don’t want to see my reader queue) that I get the good news without knowing the bad news. *g*

    • FadraN

      That’s the way to do it :) I have full confidence in Jana!

  • Girl With Curl

    So sad to see it move, but I’m glad it will live on!

    • FadraN

      Me too!

  • Jayla P.

    That is fantastic. I really like that this idea is still being kept alive. It was truly a wonderful concept for writers, thinkers, and blogger alike. I am a little sad that you aren’t doing it anymore, but I completely understand.

    And I am glad SOCSunday now has a new home! :-)
