S is for... Self-promotion and Contests

Back in 2011, I held a week-long contest to celebrate the fact that I'd reached my 500th post, after nearly four years of blogging.

At the time, I sorted many of my previous posts into groups, which made for easy referencing, especially of story material.

(Also because I've never tagged my posts!)

When I celebrated reaching my 1000th post during last year's A to Z Challenge there wasn't time to sort all the posts between 2011 and 2016.

What better time than now?

I’m actually going to go over 1,000, and collate all posts to the end of 2016! And I’m going to link to every single post (except for the A to Z posts, which are mostly summarized), something I didn’t do in my original 500 compilation, or even in my 900th post compilation.

I’ve got lots of fun themes coming up for each day -- and each day will also highlight a fellow blogger or two!

Today is...

Self-promotion and contests!

Dear Deniz--

[g] Yes, but..."...about a boy...who goes back in time...with a cat" is exactly what your story _is_ about! I.e., that's a nice, succinct capsule description of the essence of the book, to which you then add a sentence or two about the conflicts said boy encounters and what the cat has to do with it all, and...Bob's your uncle.

No interviews relating to writing or blogging. Job interviews, yes, but they haven't always led to said job. Congrats on so many successful projects and awards.

You have a lot of awards and then I see something familiar at the bottom of your page. Thanks for the shout-out, Deniz!
