Shout Out

Well Yay, I have reached the 203 followers mark,
which is fabulous! 
THANK YOU to all my followers
(those of you who have recently joined and those who have been following for longer).
I shall have to think up a suitable GIVEAWAY to celebrate.
In the meantime please accept this award.

Just a reminder:
Check out the Trilogy Contest

There's also a fab Giveaway at Unedited

There's a fun blogfest hosted by Frankie

You can read my entry by clicking on the link to get your pulses racing!

My Now Showing Blogfest is still open.

I thought this would make a fun, easy blogfest to start off 2011

The linkey will close on Friday 14th January 2011
You can post your entry any time between now and then.

To start the ball rolling I have composed my description of someone:
1.Dominic 4.Words Crafter/ Becky 7.Heather
2.Damyanti@ Amlokiblogs 5.Ellie Garratt
3.Nicole Ducleroir 6.Donea Lee

I have also devised a Flowing Fonts Blogfest
Your challenge is to write a flash fiction of 500 words that includes names of the various fonts in your piece. Make the language flow smoothly as your font characters and objects unfold.
E.G. your protagonist Bradley Hand might come across a Book Antiqua. What happens next? I wonder who can include the most font names and still come up with an effective piece?

LINKEY UP FEB 2011 There will also be a prize for the winning entry to celebrate my 200 followers mark. You must of course be a follower to be eligible.


  1. Congrats on the followers and the blogfest sounds like fun!

  2. Congrats! And I agree, sound like a lot of fun! Will have to see if I can fit it in ^.^ (Also, biosigns link? Totes amazing *grin* )

  3. Congrats on the followers! Keep up the fabulousness!

  4. Signed up...now to do a post :)

  5. How wonderful! I am so glad you made your 200 plus followers!

    I am so crazy/busy this week... I still hope to enter you blogfrest!


  6. Bless you all. I've had a frustrating computer glitching day today and it looks as though the offending machine (not this one)needs to go in for repair. Aaargh! I have an order to complete and cannot do it without *that* machine. Much teeth gnashing ensues! Hope you are having a frustration free day. :O)

  7. Congratulations on reaching 200 followers! You deserve them all.

  8. 200+ followers - you are a star!

    How is Write 1 Sub 1 going? I noticed you've completed week one's challenge. Yay! I started small by writing and then subbing a piece of flash fiction. Afterwards I realised the last time a subbed something was the 19th November! Yikes.

  9. So sorry about the computer glitch you mention above!

    But I'm happy for your 200 mark with followers! It's fun to see the icons increase because that means you've made new friends!!

  10. Thanks Ann, Ellie, Kari, Bless you all too.
    Yes I love all my blogging friends old and new.

    I decided I'd do a write1sub1 round up on Friday for the week. I have submitted one 100 word Flash fiction and one 2,000 word short story so far. :O)

  11. Congratulations with you 200+ followers!! May you have many many more!! Yay!!!

    I read your no-kiss blogfest entry and really enjoyed it!! Thank you! Take care

  12. I love all the comments about my no kiss piece, yours especially Old Kitty :O)

  13. Congratulations on 203 Followers! :)

  14. Hi Madeleine,
    Hearty congratulations on passing the 200 mark in 'followers'. I hate that word 'followers'. I've been blogging for almost 4 years, I know, I should get some sleep, and it took 3 1/2 years just to reach the 100 mark.
    So, very well done. May you find much happiness in all your writing endeavours.
    With respect and kindness, Gary :-)

  15. Congrats on all the awesome followers! I'm about to be number, hang on *scrolling up...scrolling back down* number 204. Yay! It's great to meet another writer, and I look forward to reading more from you. I've signed up for your upcoming Now Showing blogfest -- sounds like fun and a great little exercise, as well.

    Have a wonderful evening!

  16. Wow congrats on passing the 200 follower mark! :)

  18. Wow thank you everyone for your wonderfully supportive wishes. I had a rather sleepless night last night, so your comments cheered me up no end in the fugg of my tiredness. :O)

  19. if i could follow your blog ten times over i would. You deserve all those followers madeleine. Congratulations!!!

  20. I am so touched by everyone's 200+ followers well wishes. Thank you :O) xxx

  21. 200 + followers - that's great! Count me in as a new one and love the blogfest idea! My writing has been accused once or twice of being too "tell", so this will be a great exercise for me. I'll post my entry on Wednesday. :)
