A spike in your stats
A huge thank you to my 3206 followers for making my blog the writing community I so wanted to create.
I will continue to investigate, share and help writers near and far with an ever changing blog covering different aspects of the writing life. I love to inspire, support and encourage.
Firstly a huge thank you to all my followers for dropping by to comment, read and share my musings. You are from all points of the globe, in fact 179 different countries have visited this site. 242 flags collected – that is amazing.
In 2016 for the first time, I split the themes of each day into two six month slots – firstly Lost Words kindly approved by the http://phrontistery.info/ were on Mondays from January until June and then I invited author interviews, writing tips, stories etc for the second half Mondays. I also shared my road trip adventures around Alberta.
Wednesdays began with a look at alternative lifestyles in deference to my speculative fiction novel I was working on entitled, Life in Slake Patch. The second half was reincarnation/life after death, which tied into my reincarnation romance, The Twesome Loop but also because this subject has always fascinated me. I was fortunate to have some special guests involved in these posts.
On Saturday’s I posed writing prompts and the added incentive of prizes for whomever responded.
As 2016 becomes 2017 – I wish you all a healthy, loving, and exciting year.

Wow – thank you all for your continued support. It is greatly appreciated.
Again if you would like to participate in my writers/author interviews this year please contact me.
Thank you all for liking, commenting, participating and above all returning to read my blog.
I hope to grow this online writing community throughout 2015 and still have plenty of room for writer/author interviews this year. Just drop me a line. I’m more than happy to adapt posting days/dates to aid with promotions/book launches etc.

A big celebration today as I write my 600th blog post…I’m stunned that I’ve managed to make this milestone.
So how should I celebrate? A glass of wine? Leaps of joy? Well both of these to be frank.
How do you celebrate your blogging milestones?
When I began this blog on 8th August 2010, it was to give myself an author platform, which at the time seemed rather precocious as my writing career had only just begun. With support and encouragement from my mentor, Linda J Pedley, and the members of the Writers Foundation of Strathcona County, I have exceed all my dreams of creating novels, blogging and launching my freelance business. The subsequent years have seen me on a steep learning curve, filled with new experiences and finding and sharing with people I would not have known existed otherwise.
A blog is so much more than a place to spout your opinion or showcase your work, it is the portal to a community.
Thank you all for following my blog, for your comments and reblogs and for accompanying me on this journey along the writers path.
Long may we continue – learning, sharing and supporting each other.
Just a quick thank you to everyone that has visited my blog – my flag counter has made the 100 flags mark!
I’m a happy girl…only another 141 to go.
Convivial – definition: friendly : agreeable
Well I’m a year older today…all I will say is my age has a five in it! Celebrations will commence after work but in the meantime I want to thank everyone, whether local or virtual, for making my year wonderful. And a nice surprise today: Award for likes – sweet.
Bluster – definition: to talk or act in a noisy, boastful way.
One way to ‘turn people off’ around you is boasting about your accomplishments, it is seriously uncool! If you share your triumphs and give back with them then that is much more acceptable. Therefore I am sending out a huge thank you to my newest followers – I hope my words and encouragement will help you along your writing journey. As always I love to hear about your own experiences. That is the premise of my blog and the global community it is linked to.
I’m open to suggestions for topics and love sharing others enlightening words as well as have an open door policy if another author would like to be interviewed.
Thank you everyone for liking my humble thoughts & words. I reached 1000 likes…whoop!
I surpassed 500 likes (actual figure 673) on 10th February 2013 – for some reason I did not share this knowledge although I did a happy dance to celebrate. However, there is no way of knowing what my current count is – yes I’ve looked extensively through the help pages and my stats page 😦 – so I suppose I will have to wait until a 1000 likes icon appears.
My motivation to share now is to thank each and every one of you for taking the time to visit, like and comment on my musings. It is my hope that you find my words fun, enlightening and helpful. I truly believe to share my journey is my mission. If I help only one or two writers from struggling in isolation I will be happy. Reaching out across cyber space as well as locally has brought me in contact with some wonderful people and enriched my life.
So I will raise a glass and toast you all using today’s word as my inspiration. Boisterous – definition: 1) a. noisy and rough : rowdy b. marked by high spirits; 2) vigorously active : stormy. Might as well make a noise about it.
