Almost done - A to Z Challenge

A  B  C  D  E  F  G  H  I  J  K  L  M  N  O  P  Q  R  S  T  U  V  W  X  Y  Z

Phew, what a great time I've had trying to keep up with the number of great, quality blogs participating in the A to Z Blog Challenge. I know many will become staples on my reading list.

Just wanted to take a minute and send out a HUGE thank you to Michelle Jones and Lisa Campbell for their blog makeover contest. I won a new header and got a bonus design tweak from Lisa. She did an amazing job and I love the new look. If you normally read my blog via a reader, take time to visit the blog directly and let me know what you think.

I had just purchased an image from and was trying to figure out how to use. Then along came Lisa and VOILA! I love it and hope you do, too. Be sure to stop by Michelle and Lisa's blogs and say hi.

Now that the challenge is ending, I have to start thinking about the direction for my blog. I love writing flash fiction but doing it every day, as I have done this month, takes away from my novel writing. I also have some ideas for short stories that I'd like to complete.

So I'm thinking that my flash fiction may be a once a week posting with maybe a filler or two during the week. I hope you will continue to follow me and I'm wide open to suggestions on ideas for the blog.


  1. I'm with you on this...can't wait to go back to posting once or twice a week! I love your new header. The cartoon you is perfect!

  2. It's among the most original and engaging headers I've seen. I love the wallpaper too.

  3. Love that new header!

    I've enjoyed the challenge, but I think we are all winding down. I noticed my comments are down and I don't have as many new visitors. My week was so busy that I didn't get around to blogs very much though - so there you are.

    Yes - anxious to get back to MWF posting. :)

  4. Hello, Donna! Your blog header looks fantastic. I can't believe there's only one week left in the blogging challenge! April went by so fast.

    Hope you're having a lovely weekend and happy A to Z!!

  5. I love the cartoon image. What a great idea. Mystery is one of my favorite reading genres. I will have to find some of your work.
    Hope you break the 100 mark, count me as one more.

  6. Hi Donna! I love, love, LOVE the new look!

  7. The new header is rocking! And the cartoon image is great.

  8. Thanks everyone, for your comments on the blog redesign. Lisa did an amazing job and it makes me smile every time I look at it.

  9. I love the new look. Great cartoon image. I guess I can be happy with one post a week from you! I know it will be nice to vacuum again after this challenge (not really fun - just nice to have no dog and cat hair rolling around the house again).

  10. You're very welcome, Donna. I'm glad it's working for you and that your readers like your new look. Thanks for the mention!

  11. I'm so glad I found you through A to Z. I love your flash fiction, but I get it... it's hard to commit to that and other writing. I'd like to include a flash fiction element to my blog as well, and usually do through various challenges.

    Looking forward to continuing to following you from May on!

  12. Tia, I suspect I'll go back to contributing to the flash challenges as well. I miss doing them, too.

    I'll be continuing on with your blog as well, just sent you an invite to my new tribe at Triberr.
