Pay It Forward Blogfest

Click here or here for more information.
Short and sweet today. It's the Pay It Forward Blogfest, hosted by the freaktastic Matt and Alex (click the here links in the picture above if you don't know who they are). The idea is to introduce everyone to everyone else, kind of speed dating for bloggers.

Following are three blogs that I enjoy reading and encourage you to check out:

Donna Hosie at Musings of a Penniless Writer (I've known Donna for several years now--a little boy who lived brought us together at the Leaky Lounge, and she's been a great inspiration and mentor to me)

Susie F at My Not So Secret Writing Life (Susie is another HP fan and former staff at the Lounge, though we didn't meet until I got involved with a Bloghop Donna was in)

Laura Josephsen at Everything you didn't want to know about writing (I think we met on a bloghop a year or so ago. I love her fun posts and hilarious books)


This is a Blog Hop!

82.
170.



We went to see Thriller by Odyssey Dance Theater. So much fun and some great dancing.





What are you up to this weekend?

  7. Some day, when you have like forever, maybe you can help me learn how to copy links. I wanted to repost this Blog Hop,but even after following what I think are the directions (for like a thousand times) I can't get the link to copy and paste. Great idea, maybe next time.

    Some days I'm such a blond.

  29. OMFG! This is insane. Donna from Musings of a Penniless Writer here and being totally out of the loop I had no idea any of this was going on and so your kind words and follows have left me speechless - a rare event indeed.

    Donna, you rock my world! You even called me a mentor!!!! I've never mentored anyone before - other than in how to eat chocolate and wear great shoes! THANK YOU
