In Praise of Hatshepsut


Every so often I like to praise blog that I’ve been following for sometime and one that is exceptional in some way or another. Today, I’d like to give some good kudos to Stephanie Thornton’s blog, Hatshepsut. If you haven’t seen her awesome blog, join the hundreds of other users who follow her frequent posts and intriguing articles every week.

Centered around her own writing endeavors, particularly regarding the famous Hatshepsut of ancient Egypt (if you don’t know who she is, try Wikipedia…trust me you won’t be disappointed) Stephanie’s blog encompasses everything from authorial interests to great contests to just plain fun. A few weeks back she hosted a great contest where fellow bloggers posted haikus on their favorite characters or just things that interested them in general. All in all it was a great success and a spectacular way to see other’s work and get in touch with fellow writers everywhere.  

What I find particularly refreshing about Stephanie’s Hatshepsut blog is her mix of quirky topics combined with some genuinely interesting blog posts. But, like I often say, don’t take my word for it. Check out her site for yourself at, and see what you’ve been missing! Enjoy!


  1. Awww... I'm blushing! Thanks so much for the shout-out, Mark- I appreciate it. My goal in life is to make everyone see just how awesome Hatshepsut was (way better than Cleopatra!).


  2. Lol...yes, much better that Cleopatra:)
