Pay It Forward Blogfest

 

Matthew MacNish at The Quintessentially Questionable Query Experiment and Alex Cavanaugh have created the Pay It Forward Blogfest. 


"Here is how the blogfest will actually work: The idea is to introduce everyone to everyone else. We want this to be an easy post that allows you to meet and follow as many other bloggers as you can. In your post, we would like you to please list, describe, and link to three blogs that you enjoy reading, but that you suspect may fly under the radar of a lot of other bloggers. Or they can be famous blogs, as long as they're awesome.

But don't stop there! Certainly visit and follow all the blogs that are featured in people's posts the day of the blogfest, but those don't have to be the only blogs you visit. You can visit everyone who enters in on the fun, and signs up on the linky list. In the interest of time you don't even have to leave comment. You can just follow, and come back another time. After all, we all know we don't have time to visit every blog we enjoy every single day."

I hope to be visiting blogs soon, but I do want to tell you about three blogs I enjoy following. 

Christine is one of my best friends. We met while roleplaying Harry Potter. It is because of her that I am a published author. She recently reached 100 blog followers and I always look forward to her blog posts, particularly Wicked Wednesdays where she talks about Paranormal Romance.

I met Michelle through blogs and read first her novella Cinders and then her novel Monarch. When I read her books, I sometimes forgot I was reading. I was wrapped into the characters and their world. I enjoy her blog because I feel I learn a bit more about her and publishing every time I read a post. I love her honesty and how she puts herself out there. 

If you haven't followed Tawna's blog yet, then you are really missing out. She's hilarious. I loved reading her book Making Waves. Her blog posts make me smile, laugh, sometimes cry. I always am sure to read hers when she has a new one up.

So whose blog do you enjoy following?

Tawna's blog is hilarious!!

Christine Rains said...

Thank you for linking me. :) I'm blushing. You're a published author because you're so talented. I just gave you a nudge! ;) I'm missing role-playing HP today for some reason. I need a HP fix! *LOL* I'm already following the other two bloggers as well.

Have a fantastic weekend!

Somehow I missed this going on! I've read (and already follow) one of those blogs, but will have to check out the other two; they sound great. Thanks!

Trisha said...

I don't think I follow any of these blogs!! Thanks for the recommendations! And I love the idea of the Pay it Forward Blogfest. There should be more of those!
