I’m sorry, there is no blog of the week this week.  Instead, after much thought, I’ve decided to hold a contest in honor of my hundred followers. Yes, most of them are on twitter. 🙂 The only thing is I’ve never held a contest before.  I’m a contest-holder-virgin. So, before I actually go through with it, I would like to hear what my humble followers have to say.

Would you like a new copy of the Duff? We’ll Always Have Summer?  Maybe you wouldn’t like a book at all, besides,  I don’t know how to go about getting signed copies or any of that…if you know feel free to let me know. Maybe you would like a doll of a dragon eating Rhinoceros, Idk, maybe my followers are crazy like that.

So let me know what you would like in the comments below, keeping in mind I’m poor. 🙂 And I’ll see if I can make it happen.  As for the rules of my contest, they’ll probably be like everyone else’s: Must be Subscribed to my blog (or twitter), blogging/tweeting about contest earns you extra points, etc..

So that’s all for today. I’ll let you know what I decide as soon as possible.  And thanks for subscribing and following, I heart you all. ;p

Guess what? It’s a new blog of the week. You remember, that time when I pick a random blog I follow and love and write about it here. Then direct you all to go and immediately follow. 🙂

This blog of the week is long overdue, and not just because it’s been months since I’ve written one. No. This person has such an amazing blog that’s been on my list to highlight for so many months now I’m embarrassed I haven’t done it already.  Her blog is smart, funny, honest and informative, from her posts on navigating twitter to her priceless advice on plotting acts one through three. Not to mention she’s having an awesome 200 follower give-away. So who is this mystery blogger I haven’t revealed yet?

None other than Laura Pauling.

She’s sweet, loves MG and YA and is going to go far in her writing career. Overall, she’s awesome. So I suggest you go over and follow now because you know you want to be part of the awesomeness before everyone else knows about it. I mean how else do you gain bragging rights when she gets big?

Okay, so go check her out, but before you do, let me know of any great or fantastic writing blogs you’ve come across.

Now I’m off to hide my pencil. If I don’t, I won’t be able to find it later. ;p

Okay, so I’ve been a little slow on announcing this, but a few days ago my blog received The Versatile Blogger Award from one of my all time favorite blogs The Writer Side of Life.

Now, like with anything else in life, there are rules.

1) You must thank and link back to the person who gave you the award;

2) Share seven things about yourself; and

3) Pass the award to 15 blogs you enjoy and let them know they’ve been given the award.

So number one, thank you to The Writer Side of Life for thinking of my blog.  It’s really appreciated and brought a smile to my face.

Now number two…lets see.

1. Is I’m boring a fact…I don’t know, I don’t think that’s what I’m suppose to put.  Wow this is hard, lol.  Okay, right now I’m reading the third book in the House of Night series by P.C. Cast and her daughter.  Like my younger sister, I haven’t decided whether or not I like them, which is unusual for me.  I’m normally very opinionated just as a rule of thumb.

2. I love to bake.  When I had more time, I would make chocolate chip cookies from scratch and eat the dough.

3. I once purposefully dropped a weight on my ankle to get out of basketball practice.

4. My little brother once purposefully dropped two eight pound weights on my head.

5. I once was in a grocery store with a bank located at the front.  Of course the bank got robbed while I was there and I, unfortunately, discovered I would risk getting shot in the back by a sawed off shot-gun to save my too-curious-for-his-own-good little brother.

6. When I was in first grade my father sued the school district.  If you google my name, you can find me listed as a defendant, along with a lesson plan for law schools using the federal case as an example.

7. Even thought I have four brothers and three sisters, I only have one niece and one nephew.

That was fun right.  Moving on.  It’s time to list the fifteen blogs I’m passing the award onto.

I would like to say thank you to lbdiamond at Diamond-Yup, like the stone, for presenting my humble blog with The blooming of and Idea Award and for

her kind words.  I would also like to share the links to the other blogs she mentioned,

AJ & Charli Bite Back and Shevi Arnold.  I took a look around these two blogs and found them fun and interesting in different ways.  So please check them out. 

Also, since I have received this award I have the pleasure of passing it on and recognizing either a fellow blogger or passing it on to two newbie’s (who have 50 followers or less).

So I have chosen:

Andrew Shattuck McBride

Cat Woods

Cassandra Jade in the Realm

I didn’t really follow the rules, lol, but these are three of my favorite blogs to read and I highly recommend them. 

Til next time, I’ll keep looking for my pencil and I hope you find yours ;p
