Kick start Monday - Reflections

Are you as tired as I am? Whew! I took this challenge and gave it my all. I'm a bit of an overachiever. I went through the two columns of the list and visited alphabetically. I appreciate those who did their best to post every day!

I found sites that sparked my attention, made me laugh, inspired me, or were just plain nice. I'm really looking forward to seeing how everyone will post in normal times. A HUGE THANK YOU to my new followers that put me over the 100 mark and for all the wonderful comments and awards. (got one more on Z day, Thanks Huntress!
Everyone was so nice and made me feel so good!
And finally, a thank you to A Hootie Hoot for the idea to join "Meet Me on Monday" a quick, cute linky link to introduce and meet more bloggers. It's at Never Growing Old if you're interested. Here are today's prompts:

1.  What is your favorite kind of muffin? big fat chocolate, chocolate chip (then big fat blueberry, I love muffins!)
2.  What was the first car you ever owned? 1978 Blue Toyota Celica, good times
3.  Which TV Show were you sad to see end? Friends, now Monica is a Cougar & Chandler is bombing as Mr. Sunshine!
4.  What is your lucky number? 2
5.  Pretzels or Potato Chips? don't we live in a world where we can have both? if I must choose, pretzels.

And now I must dust off my WIP and continue to whip it into shape.

PS - I also participated in the poem-a-day challenge from Writer's Digest. I would love if you have time to vote for your favorite poem on the right (see "I'm a poet?" to review them, if you want). I will submit my top 5 for a chance to be published in their top 50 from the challenge! Thanks again =)

Hi I am Tatianna :)
It is very nice to meet you. I write poetry as well, but I never publish anything. I just write.
Have a nice week!

Ohh, I will look over your poem later on today. I got to run right now, but I will comeback later on to check out which poem you should enter :)

Donna Weaver said...

Nice post, and congrats on finishing the contest. Love your 100th follower cupcake. =D

Whew. That was a long month!
Great job!
I will check out the poems but I'm not really qualified to judge them.
Good luck on your WIP. I should get back to mine too...shortly. ;)

What a fun questionnaire! I would second your love of chocolate chip muffins. YUM!

I laughed at your comment on My Blog. I wouldn't have listed laryngitis as a sign of spring before hearing that. :)

I would love to meet you on a monday, but not this one, I am still too tired from AtoZ.

Ellie said...

You made it to the end! Phew. I must say even though I loved the challenge, I'm exhausted.

Congratulations on the award!

I'm so happy to hear that you like fat muffins rather than the low fat, less flavorful ones.

Oh, WV just now reminded me of your question. I did get some spam once, but I just mark off as spam. I have owner verification on for older posts to make sure spam doesn't slip though and just keep my eye on my current post.

Thanks for the shout out in your post!! I've felt sort of lost after the A to Z Challenge ended and remembered the Meet Me on Monday idea from one of my earlier posts. I think it's a great way to get to know each other better.

Congrats on the award! Well deserved!
