May 5, Blog Every Day in May: Blogger Buddies

Blog Every Day in May, May 5 prompt: “Publicly profess your love and devotion for one of your blogger friends.”


I recently hit several milestones in my blogging career: 10,000 views  on April 22, 2013, and shortly thereafter, 100 posts on May 2, the day I completed the 2013 A to Z Challenge reflection post.

On that day, I thanked my faithful early followers. I love them all. It would be too hard to pick out just one from this group. Each one has such a creative flair, a commitment to excellence, an encouraging nature, and a wicked sense of humor.Kristen Lamb

But I do have to admit, there is one blogger who brought all of this together: Kristen Lamb, author of We Are Not Alone (WANA), The Writer’s Guide to Social Media.  Kristen brought our WANA 112 group together in January of 2012, and many of us still connect on our closed group Facebook page. Kristen was instrumental in helping us develop those wild and wonderful descriptive taglines for our blogs (see below). Notice that all of these blogs use our own names as blog titles. This was Kristen’s suggestion for building our writing platforms.

Tah Dah. Here they are…my blogger buddies.

Tami Clayton, Taking Tea in the Kasbah
Elaine Smothers, Wonder in the Wild
emaginette, Shout With Emaginette
Glenda Mills, Meet Me On The Mountain
Barbara Forte Abate, Scribbling Outside The Lines
Judythe Morgan, Voice and Views from The Front Porch
Mike Schulenberg, Realms of Perilous Wonder
Sheila Pierson, Wonderstruck
Ellen V. Gregory, to beyond and back
Jodi Lea Stewart   Walking on Sunshine
Liv Rancourt, Laughter, life and romance under partly sunny skieswana logo
Elizabeth Fais, Where the awesome begins
Sara Walpert Foster, Nobody Expects the Spanish Inquisition
Siri Paulson, everyday enchantments
Linda Adams, Soldier, Storyteller
Sherry Isaac, Psychological Sizzle
Sherri Martin-Hutchins, live wonderstruck
And none of us could get anywhere without advice from Laird Sapir, of Shabby Chic Sarcasm
