IWSG: Celebrating Milestones
I'm celebrating a blogaversary at the end of this month, and along the way there, I'll be celebrating some of the bloggers and authors who have inspired me on this journey of blogging and writing. Sometimes I forget to celebrate milestones, but I think we all need these celebrations.
"Traveling through scenic country, we sometimes come upon a sign reading, 'Roadside Vista Ahead' . . . we pull of the highway, get out, stretch - and look. We see where we've been; we see where we're headed . . . These are connective moments . . . Honoring them is one of the ways we have of keeping our lives coherent - keeping what we've been connected with what we're becoming." - from Leap Over A Wall: Earthy Spirituality for Everyday Christians by Eugene H. Peterson, translator of The Message
And, I'm a Muffin Commando with these fine ladies: C. Lee Mckenzie (leader extraordinaire), Carrie Butler, Yvonne Ventresca, Donna McDine, Patricia Lynne, Tara Tyler, andTammy Theriault.
My theme is celebrations! All month long, I'll be celebrating authors and bloggers who have inspired me with their determination, spunk, and style.
Today, I'm celebrating:
Alex J. Cavanaugh, Ninja Captain, IWSG Originator and Host, Blogger Extraordinaire, and Author! Alex's posts always include joy and celebrations. He is always encouraging and always kind. His latest book, Dragon of the Stars, comes out on April 7th, and I plan to help him celebrate!
And, I'm celebrating:
Al Diaz, Father Dragon, Dragon on a Mission, Amazing Artist!
Al is the giver of Father Dragon Hugs complete with dragon-fire warmth and kindness. His posts are always inspiring, always fun to read, and always encouraging!
What milestones, authors, and bloggers make you pause for celebration?
If you are interested, I'm starting a newsletter via mailchimp. I'll send out special smashwords coupons, updates on "deals" ahead of time, and a few writing prompts. And, although it's called: Everyday Writer, I won't send it out more than once a month.
