Celebrate, Speak Out, and Share the Love

Yipee!!!! Celebrate with me: When I logged on this morning I noticed Donna's Book Pub has reached a milestone. I now have 100 followers. Whot! Whot!

Thanks, everyone. While this milestone might be modest by some standards, I appreciate every one of you and thank you all for coming along for the ride. Thanks for your support, comments, questions, humor, and wisdom. I'm honored to share my thoughts and words with you all!

I'd also like to acknowledge my four newest followers:

Elsybeth42 at ElysabethsStories

Poetic Justice at tragiccreativity

Vicky Alvear Shecter from History with a Twist

Sara Katt at the Red Cat Society

Another of my followers, Melissa Ann Goodwin, is the featured blogger today over at WOW! with her inspiring Friday Speak Out on being a late blooming writer.

Yet another follower, Jules over at Trying to Get Over the Rainbow, passed this award on to all her followers. So, with St. Valentine's Day on the horizon, I would like to share the love by passing this lovely Bloggers = Love award. Just download the button on the left and post it to your blog. Then in the spirit of sharing the love, pass it on if you like. (Did I just use the word love four times in this paragraph--oops, make that five.)

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend. It's going to warm up a bit here, so hopefully some of our evil snow will melt.

Next week I'm going to announce a giveaway to show my appreciation to all you wonderful folks.


  1. Congrats on reaching 100, Donna!!!
    -15 wind chill here this mornin...the last before a warm up...I am ready...

  2. Congratulations! That's terrific. I love reading your blog.

  3. Hi Bookie (Claudia),
    Thanks. It's not quite that cold here. I am so ready for warmer weather. My van needs a serious bath to wash off all the salt.

    Hi Sheila,
    Thanks for your kind words.


  4. Congratulations on your 100 Followers, Donna!

    And congrats, too, on your February submission for the W1S1 Challenge. :)

  5. Keep up the good work Donna. We went through another cold snap but expect to be in the 70's next week, yea!

  6. Wheeee! 100 followers!

    You know, I think that deserves another whee:


  7. Hi Madeline,

    Hi Sally,
