Plain Speaking – An Archive of Blogs
For most of 2017, I regularly published a blog, “Plain Speaking,” as part of the website and organization known as Patheos.com. The idea was for me to talk about the world from a Quaker, feminist perspective. I was honored to be included, and I worked as hard as I could to engage a larger and larger audience. You see, this blog might have been some income had it attracted enough clicks. But it didn’t, and Spirit had a few other things for me to do.
In a conversation a while after I quit writing new blogs, Mary Klein offered to archive my blogs at WesternFriend.org. Again, I was honored, and I put it on the short list of things to do when I stepped down from being the clerk of Intermountain Yearly Meeting in June 2019. Of course, it took longer than I thought it would, but here are the blogs, organized by topic areas.
Thank you for taking the time to look at them. I hope you get a belly laugh.
