U is for... Unexpected Posts About Neil Gaiman...and Amanda Palmer

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...

Which author have you been excited to chat with on social media?


Hi Denise - an Unusual post to be sure = not!! Well done ... and for getting Michael in .. he's been a good supporter of many a blogger over the years - I've only chatted in emails, an occasional nod via FB - I should I guess do more ... cheers Hilary

I miss being on Twitter! It was easier to check in when I was using an iPad -- the app doesn't work well at all on my phone, sadly.
