Milestone Blogfest and more!

Today I'm making timely use of Donna Hole's Milestones Blogfest! A chance to toot your or someone else's horn! I plan to do both and very simply.

As of this week, I now have 50 followers. I like to think of that as a milestone in bloggerland. And I want to thank all of you who have stopped by, read my rambling prattle and decided it was interesting enough to stick around to read more of said prattle. Again, thank you so much for stopping by and staying.

I would also like to send a shout out to all the lovely bloggers who have and will be holding blogfests in the near future...

* DL at Cruising Altitude has a prize filled High Drama Blogfest August 7th!

* And at A Little Slice of Nothing, "The Weather Blogfest". Due August 14.

* The Literary Lab's second annual Genre Wars Anthology presents "Notes From Underground" contest!

Literary Lab Contest Button

* Jen at unedited, is throwing the Guess That Character Blogfest August 19th and 20th.

* And check out The Funniest Blogfest Ever at Thoughts by Lilah Pierce, held on September 1st.

Missed any? I will be happy to put them up on my Blogfest and Contests tab!


  1. I look forward to reaching that 50 follower mark. I only starting blogging less than 2 months ago and have reached 32 followers from participating in 2 blogfests and 1 blog hop. Among other things who have gathered followers, I just can't wait. Thanks for sharing and see you around!

  2. Congratulations on reaching 50 followers, Nicole. I can see why. Yours is a friendly, warm, and insightful blog with goodwill towards all.

    Have a healing weekend. Just a question. Am I boring my blog friends with my ghostly serial? I'd hate to do that. Roland

  3. Well done! And nice collection of contests :) will have to peruse *grin*

  4. Congratulations on 50 followers, I think I was the 50th! :)

    Thanks too for linking the blogfests- one about weather, eh? I'm going to have to look into that.

    I LOVE writing weather...

  5. Thank you for joining my blogfest, and for shouting out other bloggers. I do this myself on Mondays - if I'm on time, that is - and appreciate everyone who gives accolades to fellow bloggers.

    Congrats on reaching 50 Ann. I've been reading through several of your latest posts, and I must say, I like what I see. I so adore meeting new people.

    Thank you for participating in my Milestones blogfest, and for allowing me to interact with someone I didn't know.

    OH, I love your fish tank. I miss mine. I've thought of putting up a virtual one; but it make me miss the real thing so much more. But, I'm enyoying your's.

    I'm sorry I'm so late in commenting; but I worked late at my day job, and I'm having serious blogger issues too. Darned electronics; can we really not live without them?



  6. Justin: I am now your #34! Not being on long myself, I found that blogfests and the like are a great way to meet more creative comrads in arms. Thank you for stopping by!

    Roland: Do not despair Roland! I for one enjoy your story. I've just had one of those weeks where I havent had the extra time to read my way through blogland. I hope to do that tomorrow at the latest.

    And thank you for your kind comment about my blog. I figure that there is enough negativity in the world (and mayny times in my characters lives) I may as well have a peaceful place for the real worlders and the characters to rest.

    Thanks Roland!

    Nicole: It's fun typing 'Nicole' for someone else. ;-D (I am easily amused). I am glad the links will be of use and enjoyed. Thank you!

    February: Why yes you were! Thanks ever so much!!!!! And I am looking forward to the weather one too. The weather can be a character or story all on its own.

    Donna: And than you for holding it. It was a very good idea--very possitive. And I've read a few of your monday posts. It's a great way to find links!

    As for the fish, I understand. I have a tank with a couple Koi and when I saw this virtual one, I could not resist. Feel free to visit them when you visit Under the Steps!

    And no worries about the time issues. Most of us suffer from this and the love hate relationship with tech. BTW, you called me Ann? Did you remember my meme on myself a while back or have you read my old fan fics?

  7. I don't know what happened, the last comment went to an error notice...? Anyway, congratulations on the big 50!

  8. Nicole - yes, your name is Nicole. I had this Ann Murray song running through my head as I wrote the comment. Silly, silly. Thanks for being so forgiving :)


  9. No need to apologize. My middle name is Anne and I have written fan fiction under Ann Pendragon. It's sort of funny the coincidence! And thank you for following!!!

  10. Nicole ~ Thanks so much for the shout out for my blogfest...and congrats on reaching the big 50 (which a woman usually dreads). :)

  11. Not if its just a number to her, DL. Not if its just a number. And not a problem and thanx!
