Winding Down After Another Week of Blogging...and so completely filled with gratitude!

thank you! miles mcg
25th follower of erica and christy
 After two weeks of blogging we have quadrupled our followers. erica and christy picked #25 as a number to celebrate...so we are thanking our 25th follower by dedicating a blog to him and giving him two virtual flowers. (we're sure you're thrilled!)               
                             MILES McG! It's YOU!
(you can take your flowers or leave 'em...just know they're yours!)

We are so grateful to all of you who chose to click the follow button, so don't think we've forgotten you in any way (*waves to new friends*). You just never know when one of you will be chosen for something special!

But today, this is for Miles. Please accept our token of gratitude and allow us to share your blogging brilliance with our friends in the blogosphere.

Check out his blog: An Author's Quest

He has only been blogging for a short time, but already has some great posts to offer writers who, let's face it, all pretty much travel the same road when on the way to becoming published. He's sharing his journey, his thoughts on writing topics, and book picks while also giving nods to fellow writers, their blogs and contests.  He'll even introduce you to his adorable human puppy, Ruby! Follow Miles and stick with him so you can celebrate when he gets his offer for publication. We're rooting for you Miles! 

We'd also like to thank Quinn for following our blog and choosing us for an award, which we gladly accept.  Please check out Quinn's blog: seeing dreaming...writing. Extra bonus for checking it out this week - he's running a contest! We are happily passing this award along to these sites that we've just recently discovered. Blog on!

If chosen for this award, please collect it here and add it to your fab blog. Then, choose up to 15 others that you enjoy, link to them and let them know you're awarding them so they, too, can enjoy the honor.  You know, keep it going (if you want to).  We're all friends here in Blogland. To our male blogging friends, we're sorry it isn't more manly. We don't know who started this picture!

When we have more time to puruse Blogland, we'll add a few more to our "Blogs" tab above. Add any you like to the comments section, especially if they're writers following the same journey we're on. It would be helpful to everyone here!


  1. Wow! I'm so grateful to be a follower of your blog, and not just any follower...the 25th follower! :)

    (By the way, I just did a post about the whole thing, so check it out if you guys want!)

    I'll end this little comment by saying I'm seriously stunned. Thank you thank you thank you. For the virtual flowers (I'm adding them to my blog in a second!) AND the award. I really do hope you guys get published, and that we'll continue to grow as fellow bloggers/Crusaders/friends along our journeys!

    Thanks again!

  5. Sorry I'm a bit slow...but thank you for my award! It's much appreciated.

    And good luck with your writing targets. I know I won't be keeping up with you half-marathoners, let alone the NaNo mob. Good luck with your word counts everyone!

  6. Sorry, we must have missed a couple of you when we went out and left comments about the award (thank goodness for the "we're all human" excuse, huh?!).
