ThankFUL Friday/ Blog Hop

Hey everyone! Happy Friday!

So in the spirit of our buddies over at Cali Cheer Mom and their Woo Hoo Wednesdays, I decided to do one ThankFUL Friday!

I am thankful for:

-My fiance, my family, my dog and my cat who all give me so much love every day ;-)
-My closest girlfriends: Laura, Britt, and Lisa who always give me continuous support
-All the submission requests I've received
-The elderly residents at my work for keeping a smile on my face and giving me something meaningful to do
-My talented bellydance sisters
-The opportunities and education Stetson presents me
-All of you followers out there who are doing a great job recruiting
-The muse that makes my writing flow =)

What are you ThankFUL for? I'd like to get some positive energy flowing here.

Also, don't forget this week's Blog Hop thank to Crazy for Books!

Book Blogger Hop

The Book Blogger hop was created for Book bloggers and readers to connect and share their love of the written word. This is a weekly event that lasts Friday- Monday. Rules are as follows:
  • Grab the logo
  • Spread the word by posting about the hop on your blog. In your post, make sure and answer the weekly question. This weeks question is- Do you use a rating system for your reviews, and if so, what is it and why?
Yes, I use different moon phases: full moon, three quarter moon, half moon, crescent moon, and eclipse. I use them because it's an easy, cute, nocturnal *wink* visual for everyone to see the rating if they don't have time to read the whole review.


  1. Again, for some reason it keeps saying that I'm posting on Thursday. Seems odd when this is ThankFUL FRIDAY lol.

  2. Hi! I'm stopping by from the hop. Those are great things to be thankful for. :)

    I like the moon phases ides. It works really well with your current theme.

    I'm your newest follower!

  15. Hey Kaitlyn, Tried to leave a comment on the contest but there is no contest button. I don't use ratings but the phases idea is great. I tweeted your contest, and I am following here and twitter. I only blog, no fiction writer here -- I have a contest on my blog at Fangs, Wands and Fairy Dust

  16. Hi Steph! Thanks for following and for the RT! I will definitely check out your contest. =D

    P.S No worries, leaving a comment anywhere on the blog counts. ;-)
