A to Z Blogs of the Week, and Belated Thanks!

I've made my way through more of the A to Z Bloggers list and, as expected, I came upon many more wonderful blogs. I'm happy to highlight three of them this week.

1) Cheekyness

I love the title of this blog, and Su writes about lots of interesting topics with a fun and "cheeky" style. From what I have seen so far, her blog is a great read.

2) Cheap Therapy

Another great title! I discovered "Project 52" on Cheap Therapy, and I think it is a really clever idea for goal-setting. I may have to do my own Project 52 next year.

3) Writers' Ally

Great blog title number 3. When I first saw the web address for S.A. Larsen's blog, I read it as "writer sally," and was expecting a writer named Sally. Instead, I found Sheri, and though she is taking a bit of a hiatus from blogging over the summer in order to focus on her writing, she and others created a Facebook group to support bloggers called Writers Support 4 U. I've joined, and I think it seems like a fantastic group.

So those are my blog hop highlights for this week. Shannon at The Warrior Muse has re-opened the submission link for the A to Z Visitors Blog Hop, so if you'd like to join, there's still time! I have a page at the top of my blog where you can add your link, or you can sign up at Shannon's page or at Life is Good.

Also, I want to send a very belated THANK YOU to two bloggers who were kind enough to give me blog awards in the past few weeks.

First off, the very sweet nutschell at The Writing Nut honored me with the Irresistibly Sweet Blog Award. Thank you, Nutschell!

And, the creative and talented Deirdra at A Storybook World gave me the Creative Blog Award. Thank you, Deirdra!

It's always a treat to get these awards, and I'm very grateful to both ladies!


  1. Congratulations on your well deserved awards, as you say it's lovely to recieve them,

  2. I love your A to Z progress bar! I was going to suggest one and then I looked up and there it was.

    And congrats on the well deserved awards.

  3. Congratulations on the awards! :)

  4. Congrats on the deserved awards. When I get time I'll check those blogs out. :)
    Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow

  5. Congrats on your awards! I can't believe the A to Z Challenge was 3 months ago already. Now only 9 months until next year's, LoL!

  6. Congratulations on your awards (you have one more over at my blog waiting for you, too).

    I need to look up this Project 52, so will be clicking that link after I've commented. I saw it elsewhere and didn't think much of it, but now that you've mentioned it I am intrigued.

    Way to go on the A to Z progress!

  7. Congratulations on your awards Julie!

  8. I think it is commendable to take the time to trawl through all the A-Z bloggers. I was crazy enough to visit them all in April which meant they only got a quick look in and I had to make very quick first impression judgements about following along. I should probably revisit, if only I had the time !

  9. @Yvonne, thank you! It really is lovely, always makes me smile. :)

    @LG, thanks!

    @The Golden Eagle, thank you!

    @Ciara, thank you, I appreciate it. :)

    @Jules, thanks so much. I hope you enjoy the blogs if you get a chance to check them out.

    @Laura, thank you! LOL, it's crazy to think how quickly those nine months will go by too, it will be April again before we know it.

    @Samantha, thanks!

    @Shannon, oh, thanks, I'll be over to see, thank you very much!

    @Trisha, thank you!

    @RJR, wow, I'm amazed you were able to get through all the blogs in April! I tried, but didn't even come close. I hope now to be able to get there now, we'll see.

  10. Wow, that you got through AtoZ. I only got about 1/2 thru. Cheap Therapy is on my list. Will have to check out the others. Congrats on the awards. :)

  11. Yay! Well done on the awards. It's great to know that the A to Z is still alive.

  12. Julie, Congratulations on the well deserved awards.

    I, too, like the A-Z Ticker - nice way to visually see how things are going.

    I will have to scoot over to your recommended sites - I have been a little behind on my own blog hopping from the challenge! Must get on it!

    Cheers, Jenny

  13. Congratulations on your awards! You deserve them. :)

  14. Congrats on your awards! I will try to check out the blogs that you mentioned. I'm very impressed with how organized you are! Julie

  15. Congratulations on the awards!
    These feature blogs are great choices. I admit I never heard of that group on facebook.

  16. Awesome list, thanks for sharing!


  17. Congrats on your awards. And thanks for more blog links :)

  18. Congrats on your lovely awards!

    I'll have to check out the blog links--they sound fun! Of course, I'm already following Sheri's blog. :)

  19. Thanks for the info. Checking out those blogs now.

  20. Those are some great blogs. :-) Congrats on the awards.

  21. @Mary, thanks! Oh, I didn't get through yet, I just made a little progress but I still have a way to go. It's fun to find more great blogs though. :)

    @Rosalind, thank you!

    @Jenny, thanks so much. I know what you mean, I've gotten behind this summer as well, but I'm hoping to get caught up soon.

    @Michelle, thank you!

    @Julie, thanks! LOL, I've always been so unorganized, I figured I had to try to change. I'm working on it at least. :D

    @GiggleandGuns, I had never heard of the group either, but it definitely seems like a great bunch of writers. Thanks for the congrats. :)

    @Aimee, you're welcome, glad you liked it!

    @Carol, thank you, and I hope you like the blogs. :)

    @cherie, thanks!! Hope you like the other blogs, I'm so glad to have found Sheri's.

    @Rebecca, thanks for coming by, great to meet you and I'm anxious to check out your site.

    @Misha, thanks so much. :)

  22. Oh, wow, thanks for the shoutout! And congrats on your awards!

  23. You're a fledgling writer, huh? Copy-and-paste everything you want off our blogs, girl. I so love you. Ya don't hear many who say so with such vigour and effusiveness, yet, I do. Why? Because I know EXACTLY where I'm going at the end of my weee, lifelong demise, miss gorgeous. Never mind what Fred Phelps sez, Heaven's where I'm going. Wanna come along? Guhroovy. Meet me in Heaven and we'll have gobbbs of fun at my BIG-ol, WooHoo! party-hardy celebrating our resurrection for eons and eons - I'm gonna kiss your adorable feet the first chance I get, doll, because they have brought you this far. And that's simply outstanding. God bless you. Love you.

  24. @Su, you're welcome, I really enjoy your blog. And thanks about the awards!

    @Kold, thank for your comments, and for coming by, great to meet you!
