Follow Friday......


This is the day of the week where we get to know each other better by answering a question devised by our lovely hostesses Parajunkee & Alisoncanread.  We also gain new followers by joining each other's sites via GFC, so please let me know if you're a new follower since I automatically follow back.  And now for this week's question....

Q: It’s Thanksgiving Day in the U.S. so we want to know what you are Thankful for – blogging related of course! Who has helped you out along the way? What books are you thankful for reading?


A: I'm thankful for those followers/readers who leave comments.  It gives me motivation to keep posting since at least one person out there is enjoying what I write.  I've kinda been on my own from the start and muddled through things, which is why I still don't have my own blog button or decorative header (the technical process intimidates me).  I do enjoy reading PJV's Blogging 101 though and have had some enjoyable banter with Chris at Stumbling Over Chaos.  In two weeks it will be my blog's one-year birthday.  I'm proud of that achievement and hope to get myself out there more.  As to books, I'm grateful for Cole's IAD series, Ward's BDB series, and any book that feature a disabled character.  As a quadriplegic, I'm always hoping that me and others with disabilities will get better represented in romance novels.  After all, we want our HEA too.

    Congrats on your one year! I'm on month two, lol. I do know html, design, and all that, but I really don't have the time to fuss with it. I went with a pre-made (that I still have to fuss with). Your decorations may be simple, but you have great content so no worries, right?!

    Happy FF. You can find mine here.

  14. Your blog looks really cute without those "technical" things you're talking about. Plus you have a lot of followers for going about this on your own!
    It is always nice to read others' comments, so you know you're just not posting for yourself.

  15. I agree with you. I love getting comments... I keep saying that this week I'm thankful for the book blogging community. There is this real sense of community, and every comment I get and comment I leave reminds me of that. I feel like a 'part' of things.

    With or without a button or header, you have a SERIOUSLY pretty blog. It's not missing ANYTHING :D
