Digging Into the Archives


Dear readers,

If you follow Harvest Lane Cottage on Facebook, you'll recognize the puffins above. I became fascinated with the cartoonish look of puffins after reading The Legacy by Michael Phillips. These little birds were part of the setting in the Shetland Islands. If you're a patient reader of long books, you'll like the series. 

I'm feeling better than last week. I am still reading all of your comments. Your kind comments and prayers have helped me through this hard time. I hope to be writing again soon...at least until surgery. Thank you for being patient with me. I'm still not replying unless someone asks a question or requests it. 

If you're in the dark, here's what it's all about

Last time, I told you I've been reading my blog from beginning to end. I've felt a little discouraged the last few days, so I am also looking at some of my more recent posts to "build myself up in my most holy faith".  Do you do that, too? Remind yourself of the things you believe? I'm going to share another list from the archives in hopes of keeping both of us thinking happy thoughts.

Here are some of my favorites.

How to Read a Blog from the Very First Post


P.S. If you'd like to join me in reading (or skimming) my blog from the beginning, here's my very first post: A Cozy Christ Centered Christmas.

After reading the post, just click on Newer Post. Read and repeat. After you've read as many posts as you'd like, simply bookmark the next page, and pick up from there next time you'd like to read. I put mine in the bookmarks at the top of my page. 

I've read Mrs. White's blog, The Legacy of Home  and Aunt Ruthie's blog, Sugar Pie Farmhouse from the beginning. Now I'm reading Roxy Jones' blog, Living from Glory to Gloryas well as my own.

To find the first post of a blog, go to the first month of the first year listed, then find the first post. 

Enjoy!
Laura
