First, thank you Deirdra Eden - Coppel for the “Powerful Woman Writer” award and Jenni Merritt for the “One Lovely Blog” award. Both of these talented young women have wonderful stories and tips of their own to share and I encourage you to check out their blogs by clicking on their name.
The “Lovely Blog” award rules state I should pay it forward to other newly discovered bloggers. In all honesty, I have discovered so many great blogs in the last few months it would be impossible for me to name only a few. Instead, if you are a new blogger, I encourage you to accept this award by leaving a comment and a link below.
I thought I would let you vote on the topics I will cover. Below is a list of options for the first few letters. I would like you to review them and vote for the posts you want to see.
You can cast your votes either by leaving a comment below or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to tell me which topics you want. You may even suggest other topics if you don’t see one you like. The only rule (for my blog) is the topic must be reading, writing or publishing related.
I look forward to your choices. Happy Writing!
