This year, I feel a bit special too. I was a minion for the awesome C. Lee McKenzie, and I got featured quite a few times throughout the challenge.
Okay, so I had this all written out and it got deleted except for the bit above. I am so mad right now.
Anyways, I had a blast again. My posts went over really well. People loved the evil twists I threw at them. I gained new followers. Last year, I didn't see a jump in my followers, so that was nice. I approached replying to comments differently this year. Mostly because I was tired by the time I got around to it, and also so I didn't pad my comments with my replies. Since I was a minion, I was in charge of two blocks and every day I was introduced to new blogs that way, so I didn't visit the list as much as I did last year. Not sure return comments were as high as last year. I replied to 95% of the posts I read, so you'd think comments here would be higher. Page hits were high at least, so people were reading.
I'm going to wrap it up (again and this is why I'm annoyed about this being take two) with blogs I thought rocked the challenge.
Story Dam because, duh, it was the other blog I posted on.
Collin and Nick did 100 word flash fiction like I did. Those posts are the best.
My writing buddy, Melissa put together a fantasy super squad.
Sarah gave tips on naming our characters.
Nadine took us outside to her garden.
TD Harvey wrote some amazing flash fiction.
Ornery's Wife showcased her beautiful arts and crafts.
Sue wrangled rogue words.
JH Moncrieff showed that life can be stranger than fiction.
And what sort of vampire junkie would I be if I didn't mention Timothy and vampires from around the globe.
