One Hundred Is A Lovely Number

Happy Writing Ladies and Gents!
I would like to propose a toast to everyone whose lovely pictures sits on the sidebar in our delightful followers box. *whispers, when I can figure out how to rename that box, I will*

Followers for me equals fabulous friends, blooming beautiful blogging buddies, and lovely likeminded souls who love to stop by and share stories along their journey.

There's been quite a few posts recently asking why we blog?  A great question too!   I'll be honest - initially I planned to hone my writing skills, learn more about this bewitching trade called publishing, and share my musings throughout my writing journey.  Storytelling has been part of my life for a long time and I feel like I have all these characters whose stories are bursting to jump out of me.  Blogging helps me keep that jumping urge under control...sort of.   Now, if I said these were the only reasons I blog, I would be telling more bare-faced porkies...the truth is, its also the enjoyment derived from being part of a writing community...yes, yes there are tears, laughter and joy...get on with it the dear lady hisses.

Alright then...without further ado, I've donned Betty Draper's apron and will be serving bubbly and hors d'oeurves...don't worry no exotic bugs on the menu.  Here's that dotty lady with the drinks trolley now.

Cheers to you all!  Thank you for listening to my waffling of late...yes you do like to waffle dear.  




A/N:  Happy Friday All -  Outside of juggling birthday parties, sneaking in a spa appointment and oh, walking the dog....I'm planning on hitting my WIP this weekend - how about you?

  4. The fact we don't have to be holed up in our own little isolated worlds is also a big reason why I blog, too. Just knowing there are others like me roaming the earth gives me the warm fuzzies!! Happy 100 and beyond. :) I WILL be hitting my WIP, too!! After my artist's date of hiking, that is. Enjoy

  19. At first I thought you were celebrating something with a hundred glasses of the bubbly.
    So congratulations with the expanding follower list - I am sure it will grow much more.

    The word I want to change is "blog."
    You are blogging - I am a blogger - my blogsite - blog, blog, blog. It sounds like something for which you might need medicine.

    Started blogging (there's that word again) to just learn how - don't like being left out in the dark. Still more to learn that I do not think I can accomplish on my own. However, what I found were many sights that I look forward to visiting, and people that are very interesting. If I were to quit blogging, I would still check in on other people's sites.

  20. WOO! BIG congrats on hitting 100! And hitting your wip! I had planned that - but I'm still on the internet. Le sigh.

  21. I'd like to rename my followers box, too. If you figure it out, please let me know. Alas, we have family this weekend, so the WIP is off limits until Monday.
