Following the Breadcrumbs: Stor e Telling: May/June 2002

Hansel and Gretel
Carl Offterdinger, 19th Century

I am traveling back in time and updating all of my Stor e Telling columns for Storytelling Magazine since 2002. I have checked all of the links, updated those that have new URL's and deleted others that have found their way to the Internet graveyard.

Through the summer and beyond I will continue to update the columns and post them on my blog until all of the breadcrumbs lead to the end of 2006. At the end of the blog you will find links to the columns from
2007 – 2013.

I continue to write for Storytelling Magazine but will not be adding current columns until the following year. If you want immediate access to the newest websites, consider becoming a member of the National Storytelling Network. Please feel free to comment on the blog and let me know if you find this useful.

Karen, I am so grateful for your blog! And I've made so bold as to "nominate" it for a Liebster Award! - which I've never heard of before last week, when I got "nominated." Don't know if you've encountered it before, but you can read all about it, a somewhat-whimsical way to connect and recognize and spread the word about favorite blogs, on my blog today [].

For all I know, you've received it a dozen times before,(and/or you have too many followers of your blog to "qualify"...?!... Whether or not you "accept the award" (do all the stuff the "rules" say - and I don't see why you couldn't do it again, if you've done it before, if you wanted all your free time...!) and participate in the Liebster daisy-chain is of course up to you - but I wanted to nominate your blog for sure! Thanks for all your magnificent work! - Pam

Hi Pam,

Thank you for your lovely words and for the nomination. I have indeed been nominated in the past, but I greatly appreciate it that you thought of me. Good luck with your blog! I hope to meet you in person very soon.
