  • Caroline has a book deal! YEAH Caroline! You have to go read the story of the three publishers all wanting her book! Awesome. I'm so thrilled for her!

  • I have 101 followers! YEAH me! I can't believe it! When I first started, I never would have thought I'd have anyone spending their precious time reading it. How wonderful.

  • To celebrate, I'm having another giveaway! YEAH books! For a chance to win these fabulous, gently read books (including the brilliance of Brenda Ueland) Please follow this short list of rules. I'll break out the very technical hat for the random draw on April 23.

1. be a follower
2. comment on what part of this blog you like to read about - a) writing, b) books, c) outdoor adventures, d) dogsledding















note: the abc's of kissing boys has a dedication by the author inside. I figure that won't stop you from enjoying the book, but if you don't want it, just let me know if you win and I'll swap it.

Now I'm 102-- I'm almost to 200 on my site and then I'm gonna stop thinking about it so much and start focusing on writing, writing, writing. I guess I'd like it when you post about writing, but any topic can be good if it's well written.
Congratulations.
Lee

Congrats on reaching 100! That's terrific. I'm already a follower. And I really enjoy the tidbits about dogsledding and outdoor adventures but I guess that boils down to learning more about the person behind the blog. That's what I enjoy the most.

Heather Kelly said...

woo-hoo! Yay! It just goes to show you that people know good stuff when they see it! I love the thing that makes your blog unique--you (I know that's corny but it's true), so I think my favorite part it your blend of outdoor adventures, dogsledding, and writing. Yay! Keep blending!

Marcia said...

I love that picture!

I'd love to win the books. I'm a follower. My favorite things to read about are (1) writing, and (2) books, but I definitely come for the sports and outdoor stuff because they are so NOT ME and expand my horizons. :)

Mary Campbell said...
