Shoutouts: because friends matter

by Missy

Friends always matter, and their presence matters a lot when a new blog is starting. (I should know, I had many of them.) It’s no different with Mia’s story, so to celebrate the first week’s anniversary let me introduce you to some of the generous bloggers from the A to Z challenge.

Frederique left the first ever comment on the first ever post, confirming that these words are not just flying around in the vastness of the internet but do reach others who take the time not just to read but to share their reaction as well. Frederique is writing a bilingual blog about quilts, and this year’s topic will be DIY textiles with ideas about repurposing old clothes.

Sarah Zama
Leaving the first like on the blog, Sarah encouraged me that the first post was good enough. As a busy writer of historical fantasies (what a cool genre!) I appreciate her visit. She will be writing about The Great War this year, check it out!

Iain Kelly
Leaving the first follow: when people click the follow button, it confirms that they want to stay in touch, they are interested in what’s next. As we plan at least 26 stories, it’s great to know this! For the A to Z challenge Iain will write about ‘The State Trilogy’, of uprising, civil war in a dystopian political thriller.

Favourite A to Z blogger
When giving shoutouts, I cannot leave Tarkbarka Hölgy off the list, who is always my favourite to read in the challenge. She is the queen of folks tales, her twitter is full of interesting facts and stories, and this year she is going to combine them with tarot. If you ever wondered what story can a tarot card have, don’t miss it!

The A to Z team
All this would not be here without the A to Z creator, Arlee Bird, and the awesome team of the challenge:
J Lenni Dorner (captain) @ Blog of Author J Lenni Dorner
Zalka Csenge Virág @ The Multicolored Diary
John Holton @ The Sound of One Hand Typing
Jayden R Vincente @ J R Vincente Erotica Writer
Jeremy Hawkins (graphics) @ Hollywood Nuts

Thank you all for being here, bringing the inspiration and keeping the motivation to share our adventures!

  1. Thanks so much for the mention. That also means a lot. It happens so frequently that we leave a comment on a blog and it just die there, with never any answer to it. I’ve always understood blogging as a community and it makes me sad when there is no reply to connections. But in the same way, it makes me happy when I see such response as yours 🙂

    I didn’t realise the blog was this new. I think it’s a brave action to start a blog during the challenge, but it may also be a great success.
    I loved your first post, really. Can’t wait to read more!

    1. Thank you Sarah! I agree, it’s great when we have conversations around posts.
      Yes, it’s a new blog though I had ones before, that’s where we met first couple years ago! I’m glad to see yours still up and running 🙂
