How it is done.

Her blog is shockingly good. As good as any I've read. As good as Sherry's was. I read straight through her archives and know for sure that I could not write words like that. Her average posts are very good; her good posts make me gasp. And there are very many good posts. More than I linked, but I stopped keeping track. Three hours of reading, and I never learned to put my guard up against her slice of a last sentence.

Maybe her personal blog isn't your style. Please do not use my comments section to disparage anyone.

How could you not like it? It's a masterpiece. (Yours is on the same realm of awesomeness.)

That's what I think of her blog, but I know that some of my readers are only here for the irrigation talk. They might not have the same appreciation for Esereth's blog.

And a family full of reasonable people. But other people with her stories couldn't tell them like that.

That's extraordinary, but I don't think I could read too much in one sitting. I imagine looking out the window on an icy day.

Request - when you link to a source you like, would you give us a little taste via a small quote? I tend to be lazy about clicking through if I know I'm going to have to figure out what you liked, and far more likely to do so when I've been given a teaser.

Hm. Don't know if I could excerpt her. Each of her pieces is a pretty tightly woven whole. But I'll remember the practice of excerpting when I'm recommending something.

A4 nailed it for me. Nicely done, but too bleak for flipping to while my programs/tests run, which is when I read blogs.
