Welcome to Slàinte Sundays where I give a toast to those posts I enjoyed during the week.
In this, my very first toast, I wanted to send a special shout out to those people who helped me make it happen:
First, I would never have even considered a blog if it weren’t for the amazing Kristen Lamb. I’ve taken two of her blogging & branding classes, and have been following her for months. I’ve learned so much from her…she is a genius, and I recommend every writer, regardless of where you are in your career, to not only check her out, but subscribe to her blog AND buy her books, “We Are Not Alone: The Writer’s Guide To Social Media,” and “Are You There Blog? It’s Me, Writer.” I believe that every bit of information Kristen has to offer is critical to achieving a successful and rewarding career as an author.
Next up, Kerry Meacham and Kate MacNicol. When I was at the end of my rope, they walked over and tied an extra bit of length to it. THANK YOU, Kerry and Kate, for snapping me out of my creative block!
Then there’s Sharron Gunn. Sharron, a fellow author, is an expert in Scottish history and Celtic studies. She is a particular hero of mine and I cherish her teaching spirit, and her patience with all of my questions. Thank you, Sharron!
And finally…Carrie Spencer. Oh, how I adore thee, let me count the ways… Ok, enough silliness. Carrie is not only an unending fount of knowledge of all things WordPress, but she also has endless patience. I know me…quite well, in fact…and I can say without any doubt that I can be a bit slow (read frustrating and/or annoying) when it comes to the techy stuff. My hat off to you, dear Carrie, for being the wonderful teacher you are. Thank you so much for everything…if it weren’t for you, this blog would not be here.
By the way, check out Carrie’s group blog – Romance University – where she and six other witty and talented authors are, “Dedicated to helping writers establish and advance their careers, introducing readers to a variety of authors, and delving into the ever-inscrutable male mind.”
To Kristen, Kerry, Kate, and Carrie…
