TAG O’RAMA: Past Due Gratitude – Part 2 of 5

Life has just gotten away from me in the last few months… between the 365 Daily Challenge, publishing two novels, reading ~100 books, and earning a living, I haven’t been able to keep up with all the wonderful tags and awards that I’ve been blessed with. I’m so grateful to the blogging community for the love and support you’ve shown me and feel awful that I’ve gotten behind on about ~40 nominations or ping-backs. I’ve been trying to catch up, but it’s not working! So… I’ve decided for the next week, I am going to highlight several bloggers each day who have been generous enough to tag me…

These bloggers deserve the kudos and a celebrated mention so that more people can find out about them and/or connect with amazing people around the world. Below please find 7 blogs you should be checking out and following. I’ve included the original post they tagged me on as well as a response to a few questions or items from their tag. If I stay on schedule, I’ll be caught up and current on my tags within a week, and then I promise to try to stay on top of them going forward. Thank you to everyone for understanding. Much gratitude for sharing your blogs with me and in turn with the rest of the blogosphere!

  1. Heya!! Thank you for the nomination. Why are you awake writing a blog? Shouldn’t you be sleeping or some such fun stuff? We think you are Superman, but do you have to show us that everyday?
    I am getting a complex for not doing anything…
    BUT WHY ARE YOU AWAKE

  3. This is such a neat way to catch up! Thanks for the mention. I have to say that I still need to read The Cottingley Secret which I won last year and the Spells and Caramels series. Those book covers! Just amazing. Hope you love Dragonfly in Amber! 💛 Take care. 😊
