T is for... Tolkien

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...

Have you featured a favourite author during the A to Z Challenge?


Hi Deniz - Tea for Two you could not include ... Tolkein - your love for his works shines through, and then Theresa with her Tales of Teaching, Tribulations, Typing Teen Texts - she's got a lot of troublesome Ts around!

Congratulations on your two Ts ... cheers Hilary

I've been impressed with your post on Tolkien and the time you've spent in his study.
