PAY IT FORWARD BLOG HOP.

Hey there fellow bloggeroos!  Hope everyone had a wonderful week.  Thank you all for being so patient during my critiquing period.  For those of you that left me a comment anyway, you are so sweet!  I do appreciate it.  For those of you who decided to follow me, big welcome!  If I have not followed you back yet, please leave me a comment to set me straight.




I started off the morning with a chuckle so I thought I'd share it.  I keep my cell phone on my desk.  My ringer is set to the Pink Panther theme for everybody.  I was sitting here minding my own business when the phone rang.  Hubs always calls me a few times throughout the day to get his Laila fix.  Well, I grabbed the phone and in my best hot porn star voice said, "Hello there sexy."  There was a brief pause on the other end of the line.  Then a woman giggled and said, "I'm sorry, I have the wrong number."  And we laughed.  I added two years to her life and mine.  At this rate I'll live forever.





Now to the matter at hand.

These two highly intelligent manly specimens:

Alex at http://alexjcavanaugh.blogspot.com/ and Matthew at  http://theqqqe.blogspot.com/ devised a plan that would enable us to meet other bloggers and ride up the ladder to bloggingdom.  They came up with this blog fest.





I'm supposed to list three blogs I visit and enjoy.  Well, I visit a heck of a lot more than three, so here's what I'm doing.  Today (pretend it's Friday already) I will list the three manned by the ladies who have been a great inspiration in my writerly life.  Besides, we've exchanged the occasional email and that's pretty cool.  In alphabetical order by last name I give you....

Carrie Butler from http://soyoureawriter.blogspot.com  Carrie is smarter than heck and she writes the best flowing conversations I've ever read.

Lisa Regan at http://lisalregan.blogspot.com  Lisa is a highly talented agented writer waiting to find her novel a home.  She has tons of knowledge to offer.

Apparently, these two ladies have teamed up with a third party to host the blog hop below.  Check out Carrie's blog for more info.

And last but not least, Nancy Thompson at http://nancysthompson.blogspot.com  Nancy focuses on her journey to getting published.  She gives us hope, and she is an awesome writer.  She's also responsible for the fact that I am now following people on Twitter.  I'll have to do a practice run. :)  Great Heavens!



Next week, I will possibly participate on the above blog hop and pass on a few awards.  In that way I can name a ton of other blogs that I have missed.



Have a great weekend everyone!  I'll be around following and visiting.  ...^-^...

  8. Awww, thanks angel! I am humbled. And you are too sweet!

    Great minds think alike, I see. We both listed Lisa! Well, I hope you get lots of traffic from the bloghop.

    And I'm glad you decided to rejoin Twitter. I did the exact same thing: joined but never participated. Then Jennifer Hillier twisted my arm and I couldn't resist the pain, so viola! Tweet tweet!

    Have a super weekend and thanks again for the shout out!

  13. I love your choices. Your story made me smile. My mom did something like that once when I was little, back in the days before caller IDs. Turned out it was the elementary school secretary--I'm sure you can imagine the stereotypical older woman during the 60s. Yeah. Mom was embarrassed.

  28. Welcome back! The ringtone I had on my phone was Darth Vader's theme. Since Mrs. Penwasser didn't appreciate that, I changed it to Beethoven's 5th Symphony. I'm not sure that's a whole lot better, though. So, I mostly set it on vibrate, put in my pants pocket, and call myself.

    Congrats on your blog fest and good luck, you have so many lovely blogger friends and I am so terribly jealous..., I hope you don't like them more than you like me, you'd tear me apart :). Kisses lovely magic lady.
