No Awards Acceptance Policy: This blog does not accept Blog Awards that involve awarding others and passing on the love, etc. A blog post about it here.

(I believe I show my appreciation when I comment on other blogs, link to them, share their posts on social media, or reblog them with my take. I do not give out awards, and do not expect them. A Like or a Comment from you will make my day, and I’ll visit and chat with you in turn. But please, no blog awards.

Any blog awards with links will now straight go to spam, from which I’ll rescue your comment, but not the link. I hope you understand, and can forgive me.)

  2. Thanks for sharing such valuable information on your blog. Just clicking into the links in the sidebar is enough inspiration to keep writing! You’ve done so much homework for us. If we contact half the folk you mention we could build a massive network and even fulfil our dreams of getting published!! ;-)


  3. Thanks for attention to my blog! It means a lot to me. I am waiting for what feels right -to take the next step with my writing. To do the thing that is required in our modern world…..make money. That is the hard part for me. The writing comes easy. ; )
    I will try to give more attention to your tips and such. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Thank you for the “Like”! I love knowing what others think about my writing! I hope that you continue reading my Short Stories, and if you get your hands on my book, I’d love receive some feedback. Take care!


  5. Thanks so much for liking my blog post. My friend, Janet, and I are in the beginning stages of our editing/writing business and appreciate any support we get. I will definitely be reading more of your blog and am interested, too, in learning more of the Insecure Writers group.


  6. Thank you for the like! I hope I can keep you entertained, even if I go off the track of my normal writing to document my speed bumps and potholes that tend to distract me. (The stone was the biggest tiny distraction I have had. Or would that be the tiniest big distraction?) Now it is back to work after I did my version of yoga or tai chi. Picture will be posted. ;)

    Anyway, thank you again for the like!


  7. Damyanti, sorry to put this here put I wasn’t sure where else to put it! I was inspired by your E L James post, as you may have noticed from my lengthy comment :D. I decided to do a post on my own blog to share those thoughts with a link back to your original post – I hope you don’t mind?


  8. Hi, sorry that I left my site link at my previous comment. Do feel free to delete it. I should have read your “Bloggin advice for newbie” before I comment but I was too anxious to thank you for visiting my site. Also, as this is the first time I wrote a comment, I have no idea that my gravatar leads to my site…please pardon me for my ignorance.😓


  9. Thank you for visiting my site and liking my post on “Take control of your title and tagline”. From my post, you can tell that I am a newbie undergoing training. ^_^ Because of your “like”, I have discovered an amazing site here. I have decided to follow you. Cheers!


  10. Hi there,
    Thanks for stopping by / liking my baking post.

    Some really useful information and advice on your blog, especially for relative newbies like myself. I’ll enjoy reading the back catalogue of ‘dos and don’ts’ :)


  11. Hi. Thank you for enjoying my Real or Fake Names blog. It’s nice to change names at times. I do myself, but my family get a little confused. They aren’t use to my other names yet. But I see that you also use a different name. Take care now.


  12. Thank you for the like on my post about the British Library – you are the first one to ‘like’ a post on my page! I did only start blogging on Thursday but it is very nice to have a little encouragement! It also lead me to your page, and I am glad it did. Wonderful posts about all the things I love most – I’ll be back! TartanRose :)

  13. So glad I ran across your blog. I just started on my own ambitious writing endeavor. Publishing a novel serially at my blog. I hope to have the stamina it will take to write and edit the many thousands of words. Thankfully, I write and edit everyday.
