  1. createwithjoy

    I just about fell out of my chair, Laurel-Rain, when I read that you have 11 blogs!
    How DO you keep up with them all!

    Best of luck to you with your goals in this Bloggiesta.
    I hope to participate as well!


  2. Books in the Burbs

    I admire you having 11 blogs!! You will forever be my inspiration, because if I ever get overwhelmed, I will think of you and have hope!!



    1. Yes, that does sound like a lot of blogs, but I alternate posting on them…and four of them are the primary blogs. I once had 20 (for about a month!), LOL.

      For me, it’s fun, but I no longer have a day job, but do freelance work and blogging in my retirement. Thanks for stopping by, Hollie.


  3. Hello! I’ve been reading your blog for a while now and finally got the courage to go ahead and give you a shout out from Austin Texas! Just wanted to tell you keep up the fantastic job!


  4. I feel like a parrot, but I did promise myself to comment on at least five fellow Bloggiesta participants’ blog, so here goes:
    2) Great list, and congratulations on having worked your way through most of it!
    3) ELEVEN?????


  5. Eleven blogs? Even though “only” four are main ones, that’s a lot of work! I can barely keep up with one blog these days 🙂 Looks like you’re almost done with your list, so good luck finishing up!


    1. I retired from a very high-pressure job with lots of deadlines, so dealing with blogs feels relaxing…LOL. Thanks for stopping by, Reanna…and the one thing left on my list may not be doable…Twitter chats are like strange territory for me, but I always hope to try.


  6. Well done on your list – fancy helping over on mine!! Only joking! I am working my way through the participant list but have to pop out so will have to resume later!! 😀


Please leave your thoughts. Comments, not awards, feed my soul. Thanks!
