Best of our TU Community Blogs, June 23, 2016: Ten for Thursday

One of the things we get to enjoy about blogs are those moments when we can celebrate great events.  You know – events where the blogger can cross #17 off of their life achievements list.  Or when a blogger can celebrate a time of change or a time of improvement.  Sure, it’s easy to kvetch and gripe, but how wonderful is it to celebrate life’s wonderful events.

And we’ve got plenty of those achievements this week in the blog wrapup of the Times Union’s community and independent blogs.  Starting with:

  1. Alicia Abdul in the books blog, “I’m the lucky one.(Read this first.) (Yes you are.)
  2. Sara Rose Wheeler’s “Roaring Twenties” blog, “I’m going to VidCon!
  3. David Kalish’s “The Ruminator” blog, “How my essay squeaked into The New York Times, despite my doubts.
  4. Rob Hoffman’s “Hoffman Files” blog, “The pomp and circumstance of graduation.
  5. Mary Martin’s “A Good Enough Life” blog, “Dad, how you made us laugh.
