I've finally started on the A to Z Visitors Blog Hop, only a month later than I had planned to start, but better late than never. I thought it was great that more than 40 bloggers signed up to participate! I hope everyone is enjoying their visits so far.
I made a ticker to keep track of my visits as I thought it might help with my motivation. I've only visited 30 blogs so far, so that 1282 at the end of the ticker is a long way off, but at least I've made a little progress.
As I make my way through the list, I thought it would be fun to do a weekly post highlighting a few of the new blogs I discover. I'm already glad I joined this challenge, as I've found some great new blogs already. Here are three that I totally missed during the craziness of April, but I'm so glad I found them now.
1) Ella's Edge
Ella's blog caught my interest right away as I love the look of it, and I love her "Summer of Yellow" post. Really a beautiful and eye-catching site!
2) Clarissa Draper
Clarissa writes great book reviews, and I enjoyed going through her blog and reading her posts on writing and on books. She's a mystery fan like me so I expect to find lots of new books to enjoy through her site.
3) The Alliterative Allomorph
I thought this was such a great title for a blog, it caught my attention right away. I'm looking forward to reading Jessica's work.
Those are my three highlighted blogs for this week, and I've no doubt I'll find many more as I continue to work through the A-Z List over at Tossing It Out. Thanks again to Tina at Life is Good and Shannon at The Warrior Muse for this great idea!
Also, I just wanted to send a huge congratulations to Jennifer Hillier, whose book CREEP was released this week. I got my copy from Amazon today, and I'm looking forward to curling up on the couch with it. It's been fun to follow along on Jennifer's countdown to publication, and I wish her much success. Congratulations, Jennifer!
