Welcome to April 2012!

In a few hours, the A to Z Challenge will start. Whooo hooo!!!

Welcome to all my new blogging buddies. To the old ones, welcome back.

Last year, I cruised through the challenge, hitting over a thousand blogs and finishing every single post on time.

This year, I went bonkers and entered a second blog as well. WHILE I have a countdown timer to the completion of my edits.

Yeah… every ticking second pokes at my heart.

But I digress.

Since I am so incredibly creative, I’m doing the A-Z of edits and revisions this year. Yep… I’m going to list every single thing I’ve learnt while editing and revising my first book. In alphabetical order.

Yep… this girl has some major ambitions…

Sadly, this will mean that I won’t be visiting back blog commentors until May, since I really really won’t have time. But I will follow back as close to immediately as I can.

If I’m scarce on your blog, please think of me and know that I’m missing you.

See you on the other side! X

Welcome to my blog! (psst… I see yooou…)

Firstly, I just want to say hello to the wonderful people following my blog. Your support means a lot to me. You can’t begin to imagine how much it sucked when you weren’t here.

Secondly, I want to say hello to my lurkers. Yes… I know you are out there. It’s kind or hard to miss when the number of page hits per day are twice the amount of people that follow me. Unless my followers want to make me feel better by checking what I wrote more than once. 

Working on the assumption that that is not the case, I just want to say that I hope my blog makes you guys feel welcome enough to a) comment b) follow c) both. This also includes my facebook friends that keep following the links I leave.

How do I know it’s you? Because the amount of South African hits are second only to the U.S. ones. Also, these two number at least three times the hits compared to the third largest number of hits.

So anyway… I want to thank you all for coming to check out my blog. I really hope that some of you are coming back to check out what I wrote. If you have come back at least three times, I think you might want to use the follow widget, or sign up for a free subscription. That way you can get e-mails of every blog post I write. Personally, I would suggest that you opt for following, since I pretty much post every day. At this point I will mention that I might be a bit more scarce next week – hey! stop jumping for joy! – due to my spring break, but I will try to be back as often as possible.  

Anyway. Since you guys and girls have potentially missed around twenty or more posts, I’ve added labels and a search function for your convenience. The search function should also connect you to any of the thirty plus blogs that I’m following. So the odds of you finding what you are looking for are pretty high. The labels might send you in unexpected directions, due to the twisted nature of my mind. But go on. Use them. It’s an adventure…

I hope you all enjoy it here. And please, I wasn’t kidding about the commenting. I hate when it feels like I’m talking to myself. Also, I’m still finding my voice, since I’m pretty new to blogging, so if any of you have suggestions, requests or questions, please drop me a line. Be as upbeat or blunt as you like, but please please please keep it clean. If you absolutely can’t, be cleanish. No abuse or unnecessary nastiness, please.

Hope to hear from you soon.

With lots of love,
