I would first like to thank all of my blogger friends who have entertained us with wonderful stories and pictures of their summer vacation.
The variety of everyone's summer really was remarkable. If any of you would still like to keep summer going just a bit longer than feel free to scroll down and read the many fun adventures of our blogger friends.
I would also like to welcome my new followers, Reinhardt, Carrie, Ciara, Rebecca, Magnoliabebe, J, Mel, and RJR. Thank you all for joining my blogging family.
As you all can see I am only 45 friends away from 500. As I have mentioned before, that at the end of next month is my one year blogoversary which I am SO excited about. I will be doing something special so I hope to see you all. Here's hoping I make 500 by then.
I appreciate all of you caring enough to stop by whenever you can. So here's to all of you. This has been a most memorable year and I have you to thank for it.
You all might find this bit of information interesting. This past Saturday I went to a local SBCWI mini seminar on how to find the best agent for you.
The speaker was a published author and was quite knowledgeable on the different avenues of research available to us and how to use it to our full advantage to nab that coveted agent.
But a question was asked and the answer surprised me. The question was about social media. How active should an author be in twitter, blogging, etc.?
She said that she WASN'T that involved and her agent and publisher were more interested in her writing books.
I raised a brow and totally disagreed. BLOGGING is necessary especially for any novice writer. This year I have learned SO much and met THE most amazing people. I don't know what I would've done without it and all of you. So keep blogging, keep tweeting, stay connected. This community is too important to ever let slip away.
Have a wonderful day everyone.
