Ask any author the question, 'how can I improve my writing?' and you are likely to get the following response: 'Write and read ... a lot!'

Liebster, Twitter, Fifty!


What is the Liebster Blog Award?  Well it's recognition.  Last week I was honoured when awarded it from A.K. Fotinos-Hoyer . If you haven't see her blog yet, get over there.  She's doing the A-Z Blogging challenge, and all of her posts have something interesting to say.  Quite a feat!  Thanks AK :)

I'd like to pass on the award to the following bloggers.  These are all well worth a look:

Suzanne Van Rooyen - A blogger and author.  Her novel 'Dragon's Teeth' is a great read.
Becca Harris - Another blogger doing the A-Z blogging challenge, with a focus on LOTR.
Emaginette - A writer and reviewer (she writes beautifully).
Denise Moncrief - Lots of stuff: reviews, poems, recipes, reflections ... it's great!
Ruth Lauren Steven - Another writer with loads of tips and interesting guest posts.

To Accept the award, please follow these rule:

1) Show thanks to the blogger who awarded you by linking back to their blog.
2) Pick 5 blogs with less than 200 followers and let them know about your nominations by leaving a comment on their blog.
3) Post the award on your blog!


Yes, I've joined.  But I don't really know what I'm doing, agh!

I figure the best way to learn is to follow heaps of other people and see how it's done.

So, please post your twitter details as a reply to this post and I will follow!

Also, if you have any little hints about twitter I'd love to hear them.

"Fifty" is the number of followers I would like to have by May 1st.  It's good to have little targets. When I first started this blog I had a goal to have 10 members/followers by the end of this year.  Guess I've achieved that!  So if you want to help me out, please feel free to follow :)  I aim to blog once a week, but, well sometimes that goal isn't quite achieved.  50 - let's see if I can do it!
