Celebration! A-Z, followers and more

Today is Celebrate the small things bloghop time. With A-Z Blogging Challenge over and IWSG not due again until next month, I must say I got to take a little load off. But alas with a new month comes new blogposts and soon I'll have to get down to work. But for now here are the things I'm celebrating for this week.

1. Completing the A-Z Blogging Challenge. I had fears when I signed up that I wouldn't complete this challenge but guess what, I did it! So I'm happy to say my first try was a success and congrats to all the others who also made it to the other side.

2. I past the 200 followers Mark! Must have a giveaway before the end of May.

3. I have loads of awesome new ebooks to read because of the Amazon Gift Cards I won in April (including one from Nancy Laronda Johnson, - Thanks Nancy). Including books by blogging buddies Becca Ann (pseudonym), Carrie Butler and Kelly Lynn (also won a G.C. from her tour - thanks!).

4. God, you answered my prayers. Including winning some great Amazon Gift Cards so I could buy ebooks. Yeah I prayed for that and won three ($25, each), meditate on that. Before April I won just one card for year 2013 and that was in March. So thanks God!

5. Ahhh! I won another gift card ($20) at the start of May. From C.M. Brown and she sent me a very sweet email thanking me for supporting her all month during the challenge and that she truly believed that I deserved the prize. Thanks C.M.

6. I have started up writing fan fiction again after a good hiatus. Plan to catch up with my fan fic peeps.

7. I have officially set up my Blog Schedule to feature everything I'm doing each week. This week's posts are up and next week's posts will be announced by Sunday.

So that's it for today. Enjoy your weekend and no matter how small it seems, pray about it. God has a way of helping even when you think it's too minor to ask.


  1. You are organized! And a gift card winning machine. Congratulations.
    And two hundred followers - that is cool.

  2. April was a great month for you! And no one deserves God's blessings more than you!

  3. You totally rocked April. :D
    I enjoyed learning more about your series via your A-Z posts. Enjoy all those awesome books you won and congrats on your 200 follower milestone!

  4. I'm glad God answered your prayers! Congrats on all your followers!

  5. Don't know how some people function without God in their lives. I know I can't even take a baby step without Him holding my hand.

    You did a phenomenal job with the A-Z!!

  6. I don't know what child birth is like but I can imagine it's like participating in the A to Z challenge. Tough but end with something good.
