I really enjoy writing these monthly posts, reviewing some of my favourite readings from the blogosphere. It is always hard to narrow it down to ten, as their is so much great stuff out there.
If you have read something in April that you loved, please leave a link in the comments and share some of your favourites.
These first two posts are very personal and poignant. They are tinged with sadness, so you may need a tissue.
