Mini celebrations!



This has been a record week for me and my blog. For the first time ever I have posted everyday! Not entirely intended it just worked out that way with helping my fellow bloggers and of course IWSG. I am not sure I could manage this on a regular basis, so I applaud all of you who manage it regularly. It is not just posting but replying to comments and visiting others that takes time and commitment.  However, I wouldn't have wanted to miss any of the promotions I helped with this week, so I am celebrating the fact I survived the week of posts and helped out some awesome bloggers in the process. I truly wish you all the best with your endeavours.

Thanks also for all the comments on IWSG. I am really hoping to make October a productive writing month and am looking forward to getting stuck into a writing groove next week.

It has been so busy that I haven't managed to slot in my regular Birthstone Post yet but I intend to get this up on Sunday/Monday. As an aside to that, is anyone else having any problems with changing items in their side bar at the moment? I have been trying to update and rearrange a few bits and bobs and it doesn't seem to be working. Maybe it's just me!

Hope you all have a happy, healthy and positive weekend.

  1. I noticed when trying to add a certain element earlier this week to the IWSG site, it wouldn't let me. Think Blogger is having its regular sporadic glitches. (Now that's an oxymoron for you.)
    Glad you are back into the blog groove again! I can only post every day during the A to Z Challenge.

    1. At least it's not just me being my usual techy dim self!

  2. Great that you could manage a post every day. I used to at one time. As you may or may not know Chrome lost all my followers so have to restart again. Should you wish to rejoin I would be overjoyed.
    Have a good week-end.
    Yvonne.

    1. I don't intend to do it on a regular basis, a couple of times a week is usually all I can manage and I'm generally quite happy with that. I didn't realise you had lost your followers, Yvonne I will rejoin certainly.

  3. Wow, that's impressive, Suzanne. When I first started blogging in 2009, I did post everyday. I found it exhausting as my blog grew and as I followed more and more bloggers. Now I'm down to two a week, which seems manageable. Good luck.

  9. I posted every day this week too, for the same reasons. It's been fun but I definitely couldn't manage it every week LOL.

    I've been having some Blogger problems too, it's frustrating. Looking forward to your birthstone post!

  10. Congrats on posting everyday... but yes, take that break lol
    I posted almost everyday for the past 3 weeks (exception has been Sundays) and I'm ready to crash.

    I haven't attempted to arrange anything on blogger so I'm no help, but good luck. Enjoy your weekend :D

  11. I'm equally impressed by people who post every day - and I also found this week much busier than I usually have it. We can both take a deep breath and relax next week :-)

  12. Blogging every day is a challenge. I used to aim for every second day, but I just don't have enough to say for even that... So now 3 times a week is about as much as I can muster. So kudos to you!

    1. A couple of times a week is more the norm for me!

  13. I admire anyone who writes everyday, it's a very hard thing to do and must be totally exhausting, not to mention time consuming. It was good of you to help out other bloggers though. I only post every 2 weeks now and still managed to have a mind block this week. Well, never mind.

    I've noticed that blogger have changed a couple of things too but so far, I've not had any problems. I hope you manage to get it all sorted. Have a great weekend.

    1. Sorry your writing has faltered this week, I'm sure it will return soon. We all go through periods where it seems much harder to get the words flowing. Hope your weekend is going well.

  14. You've had a busy week and may next week be just as productive on the writing front! We'll understand if there aren't as many posts. :) Thanks for helping me this week too.

  15. I was updating my sidebar a few weeks ago and it seemed to go ok. I hope you manage to sort out your problems with that. Big congrats on posting everyday. That's no easy task :)

  16. Hi Suzanne - just dropped in from the hop. Well done! I can't manage to post every day - lucky if I manage weekly sometimes. Enjoyed browsing your blog.

  17. I used to blog every day, bit I couldn't do that and visit other people's blogs too, so I had to cut it back.

    1. I think it is the keeping up with everyone that is the tricky part!

  18. Suzanne, I was having problems joining people's blogs last week, something must be up. Also, good luck with delving into your writing!

    1. I think there are a few glitches around at the moment.

  19. Oops and I struggle to keep up and find out you posted every day. Apologies for not being able to get to your other postings.

    I think the trouble with posting every day is that postings can get overlooked.

    Indeed, a productive October to you. Please make sure you find the right balance.

    Happy Sunday.

    Gary :)

  20. I love helping out my friends. It makes you feel good in the long run.

    I don't know how people manage to blog every day - it must be exhausting. I am lucky enough to blog ALMOST every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. With that said, good for you - Suzanne. On top of that keeping up with everyone is overwhelming (by visiting and commenting on blogs), I am just NOW getting all caught up with my friends. :)
