I fail guys. Epically.

I did not post winners for either of my contests that ended over the weekend

I have not even tabulated the entries, so it's probably going to be a couple of days before I have them to post.

Also, I can't help but notice that today is Monday.

I have no MMGM for you.


I have no excuse, other than I've spent the last three days working absolute marathon hours in order to meet my deadline.

And. I. MADE IT!

Still a lot of work to do. 

But one GIANT hurdle has been crossed.

So please bear with me as I spend the next few days scrambling to catch up on the many, MANY balls I've dropped these last few weeks. 

I will respond to your emails.

I will post winners.

I will return to my regular blogging schedule (next week).

I will have fun and celebratory things for you guys for helping me reach 1500 followers.

Life will kinda sorta go back to normal. Until the next giant workload hits me in a couple of weeks. Oh, and WriteOnCon planning steps up a notch. And some other things I have up my sleeve. And AHHHHH!


In the meantime, there are some bloggers proudly bearing the MMGM torch for me:

Joanne Fritz is featuring YOU'LL LIKE IT HERE (EVERYONE DOES). Click HERE to read her thoughts. 

Myrna Foster is featuring HOW TO SAVE YOUR TAIL. Click HERE to read more.

Shannon O'Donnell ALWAYS has a MMGM ready. Click HERE to see what it is this week.

Deb Marshall has an Interview with Marsha Skrypuch--and a giveaway. Go HERE to check it out.

And if you've done an MMGM, drop me an email and I'll happily add linkage.

Oh, and don't forget. Tonight WriteOnCon has our exciting Live Blogging Queries event with the awesome Roseanne Wells with Marianne Strong Literary. Make sure you stop by the WOC Website at 5pm EST so you don't miss out on the fun!

Happy Monday!

  18. I think we all understand about deadlines, so no pressure -- the blog does not take top priority. (Or, at least, that's the pep talk I gave myself this morning.)

  19. That "happee" cat is too cute!!! No worries - I'm just glad you're getting done what you need to. Way to meet that deadline! :)

  20. Love all the cute kitties! Hang in there (picture kitty hanging onto branch). :)
