How's everybody doin! Whether NANOWRIMO or NANOREVMO. Are you 50%? More? Less?
I am in the Less category =(
(I'm not really sad, I just don't get to make frowny faces very often...)
I'm only about 38%. But I have been doing a lot of editing and beefing up! I finally pushed my WIP over the 50,000 word mark and just added a new chapter. I'm feeling pretty good about it.
But the main purpose of today's post is the...
We are shouting out to bloggers that we miss hearing from and bloggers we would be sad if left the blogosphere. I totally understand when life takes people away from blogging. It has a way of intervening and positioning itself into the number one priority spot. Can't be helped!
The great thing is when they come back! Which is what happened to several of my friends that I missed!
Bloggy friends I miss(ed) Bloggy friends I would miss
even though they have come back if they stopped blessing us with their wit
Sorry, went over the 3 each limit...I'm such a rulebender. And I actually have one more blog that I would be exponentially less happy if it went away... XKCD
- hilarious cartoons about science, technology, math, and relationships! Here is a recent one...
But wait, one more thing...
After recently participating in the Clear Your Shelf book giveaway blog hop
(still going on if you want a free book), sponsored by I'm a Reader Not a Writer
, I have found that there are a gazillion, not kidding, a gazillion
other book bloggers out there! I may have 500+ followers (don't forget to sign up for Cassie and my giveaway
) but there are a LOT of blogs that have over 1000, even over 5000
! That is a HUMONGOUS readership!
If we want our books to be seen by more than our little group of writing/blogging friends, which feels so much smaller after viewing some of these sites, we must branch out further! Get reviewed! Put ourselves out there!
Even if you don't want a book, check out the list of participants from the Clear Your Shelves blogfest. Just click on a few of the links. The magnitude of some of these reviewer sites will knock your drawers off! And I'd say the majority are in the YA business. Very eye opening! At least it was to me.
And to help us put ourselves out there...I'm looking forward to the Writers 4 Writers
project, ingeniused by Stephen Tremp
, Mary Pax
, C.M. Brown
, and Christine Raines
which is also going to help us with spreading our works' wings! Get ready for take off on Dec 6
Lastly, here is a favorite oldie about missing you...
Miss You Much, Janet Jackson
official video, when music videos were fabulous! Enjoy your weekend!
