*8Things: People To Appreciate

*8Things iconAs you all know, I live as an American ex-pat in Denmark. It’s not the kind of culture that tries to make babies smile on the bus or invites you over for a cup of coffee. Needless to say, this community builder has been a bit lonely.

In addition to a handful of wonderful pals and one dear Danish-Estonian family, I’ve relied heavily on my online community to fill in the gaps. This week I’d like to honor *8 people I appreciate, who live with me on line.

1. Becky Knight: Soulsister and clinical sexologist, dishing about all things blushable at Living Sexuality.

2. Jen Payne: Former Monkfisher and faithful Skype confident, offering long distance therapy at Jen Payne Counseling.

3. Jena Strong: Life coach to the rescue, saving my sanity one phone call at a time via Bullseye Baby.

4. Melanie Martin: German expat in England, and constant Twitter companion.

5. Jolie Guillebeau: She of 100 Paintings in 100 Days and inspiring Soulsister.

6. Barbi Beckett: adorable neighbor, fellow art-mom, faithful facebooker.

7. Michelle Fredette: former expat turned Portlander and fellow new-business launcher.

8. Ronna Detrick: spiritual director and co-conspirator, to be found at RENEGADE Conversations.
