My First Two Weeks in New Zealand: a social media round-up

For those of you who haven’t quite gotten the hang of this website yet, it has 4 different parts:

WildlyMade – a catalogue of my photography and other art projects
WildlyRead – a blog of book reviews and other literary-related thoughts
WildlyTraveled – adventure stories

And last but not least, WildlyLived, which is sort of the one ring to rule them all. It has its own posts about my life (see the house/petsitting series I’m currently flogging blogging), and I try my hardest to do occasional round-ups of the things happening on all of the other sites, too. For instance, this is a round-up of the posts I’ve done about New Zealand in the past almost two weeks that I’ve been here.

You can also see photographs of my trip on my Instagram account or on my WildlyMade New Zealand catalogue of images.

You can also follow along on Facebook, on my new page, WildlyTraveled.

Because social media FTW.

I’m bringing back blogging with a bang on my WildlyLived websites with THREE new posts today!

First, on WildlyTraveled, you can read my mother’s story on Pink Pangea about that time she was treated to an unexpected Bororo delicacy in Brazil.

Then on WildlyRead, you can read about a book releasing today: Prudence, the first book in Gail Carriger’s new series!

Lastly, enjoy my #booknerd tendencies in my choice of St. Patrick’s Day attire for today. Happy luck o’ the Irish to you all, today, Irish or not!

On WildlyTraveled: Family Writing: On Pink Pangea: Gaining Passage to India

I am beyond thrilled to announce my mother, S.B. Fabian’s, first online published piece of travel writing!

Passage to India

“The siren began its long, mournful wail that grew in intensity over the course of several seconds. It continued at a high pitch for half a minute, only to fade away and begin again. Hearing the call, my heart seized in panic as my eyes flew to the window in search of what might be coming. Planes? Helicopters?  I jumped off my seat and scrambled under the desk, hands clasped across the back of my neck as I faced the floor and silently prayed that no planes would appear, no bombs would drop, nothing would explode, nothing would hit me.”
