Thirsty Thursday Blog Round-Up

Holy cow, what a week! I’ve been selected to be an Instructor at The Writer’s Dojo (I got a badge and everything)! It’s also the start of a new mini-Campaign hosted by Rachel Harrie over at Rach Writes and my YA All Genre group is GINORMOUS! I added about 70 blogs to my Google Reader yesterday (which means – if you’re in my group but you don’t see me on your “followers” tab – I’m following you, but it’s through the reader not Blogger or GFC). Today is already looking to be busy as well. Not only do I have to get all these posts listed – I wait for the day of to get as many up-to-date posts as I can – I also have to get some work on my daughter’s Valentine Box for school (due tomorrow, eek!) and start planning out my A to Z Challenge blog posts for April.

But, let’s get to it!

    Great links! Thanks for sharing. I will check them out for sure. I'm popping over from Rach's to say howdy! I write YA as well. And yes, it is a huge group. I go around meeting folks a little each day (this is going to take me forever–but it will be worth it). Nice to meet you.

  5. Kerri Cuev says:

    Thanks for the links! Stopping by to say hello from the Campaign!

  6. Jocelyn Rish says:

    Wow, lots of great links here. Thanks!Our YA Campaign group is pretty huge, isn't it? Last campaign I signed up for three groups and was overwhelmed, so I decided to only sign up for one this time. And of course it ends up being the monstrously large group. 🙂
