Elizabeth Mueller, for the blog award!
Yes, if you were anywhere around the blogs in April, you might have come across the wonderful craziness of the A-Z Blogging Challenge.
I completed my posts early and had them set to go on their respective days. I read as much as I could of other people's blogs and commented when I could. I must admit I failed when it came to getting around to everyone's blogs. Granted 1300 blogs is a lot, but I still feel bad. April came with its own types of craziness. I'll do better next year. *crosses fingers*
I enjoyed the posts I read. It's amazing how we can come up with such different ideas for each letter...and even the same ideas for some. I already have plans for what I might do next year (I'm leaning toward 26 days of flash fiction) and possibly 26 days of book reviews/promotion on my book reviews blog.
I think I should start writing those posts up now. *laughs*
I want to thank everyone who participated and planned this wonderful challenge.
Rach will be hosting another crusade in August-October. I don't think I'll be participating in that one. It's not that I don't want to, but I won't have the time. I need to polish up Virtuoso then, send out query letters to agents, attend the James River Writers Conference, and plan my NaNoWriMo novel for November 2011. I do encourage everyone to join the crusade at least once. It's a lot of fun.
At the end of January, I had 50 followers. Yep, I just celebrated it with a contest. Then I became a Crusader and joined the A-Z Challenge. As of this moment, I have 274 followers. That's an increase of 224 blog followers in three months.
I'm still in shock over it and very grateful.
