This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with a letter a day from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the stupendous  letter S!

The Blog dejour is:

S A I N T S W E S T

Saintwest is a blog written by the prolific poet and author Matthew Arthur.  He is from Huston Texas and he writes the most loving and sensitive poems.  Not only does he write beautifully about love but he writes the most touching poems  and stories about being a father.

It is my pleasure on Father’s Day to be at the letter S and able to write about this father that posts on the SaintsWest blog. This man that has such a wonderful way with words and emotion.  He brightens my day with his posts.  I hope you will visit his page and see what the hype is about. I know you will be touched and blessed as I have been.

Matthew has dealt with depression and now is now searching for  the “light within the darkness”. He kept a journal which inspired his passion for writing.

Matthew, Today is all about you! Enjoy your special Letter Day.

Here is a Quote from his blog explaining his motivation for this fun challenge.

” This is the people edition! So on the first day you find someone who’s screen name starts with A and you check out their blog. The idea is that you read through some of their posts, introduce yourself and give them some feedback. Then, write your post of the day and publish it, describing who the person is and your experience finding and interacting with them, what you thought of their posts. What you came away with. I think it could be fun:)”

A-Z PE Challenge Day 18 (R)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with a letter a day from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the rolicking letter R!

The Blog dejour is:

ReadandReview2016

Judith  has the cutest blog called Read and Review 2016 and it is a fun bright and pleasant blog.  She has only been blogging about 4 months  after taking part of the six book challenge. Now four months later she has reached her first 100 followers. I hope you will visit her, and make it one of your blogs to follow.

Judith is also a member of the Rosie’s Book Review Team. She writes interesting reviews and she mentions valuable information about the books such as in the book review of War and Peace.  During that review she writes:

If you are planning on reading War and Peace, it would also be quite handy if you were fluent in reading French, German and Russian, as there are numerous passages written in these languages, reflecting the education of Tolstoy and his target audience at the time.

I think that this will be an impressive blog as she grows in content and confidence.  I do think you will enjoy it.

She also has the love of books that I can appreciate. She loves hardback and paperback books and she loves the smell of a book.  Now that is the book lovers special ability, to sniff a book. She also loves tags and challenges, so give her a challenge.

Judith this is all about you! Enjoy your special letter day!

A-Z PE Challenge Day 17 (Q)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with a letter a day from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the quirky letter Q!

The Blog dejour is:

Captain’s Quarters

Yes, I know you can see what I did there.  This blog is quirky and I love quirky.  I love that The Captain labels her categories in Sailor terms.  She is  witty with her reviews and makes you want to read more about them. When she gives a review, you can tell that it is not holding back. I like that. It is nice when you see a reviewer growl in a review. I am a growler, so I appreciate that.

I have been reading her review list and once again I am impressed.  There is a Map Legend that shows all her reviews.  When I saw it, I was extremely jealous.  I must read more about this creating new pages.  Perhaps she will throw me a line and share how she made it so neat and tidy.

This Captain has it going on. She writes about Sci-Fi, Fantasy, and Young Adult novels.  Each type has a unique seafaring category that just rocks!  I love her blog. It is so cute, clever and different.  You should check her out and see what you are missing.

When asked on one of her many Blog award nominations, In which country is it your dream to live in? She replied,

I don’t have a country that I want to live in permanently.  I currently like discovering new ports and cultures.  Though I have lived in over 10 American States and London.  But settle down?  Maybe when I am old and grey.

Enjoy your special letter day today. Pirate Captain.  Today is all about you!

A-Z PE Challenge Day 15 (O)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with a letter a day from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the outstanding letter O!

The Blog dejour is:

THE ORANG-UTAN LIBRARIAN

No one should be surprised that I chose this blog as my letter O blog choice.  I mean there is something riveting about an orang-utan on a keyboard.  In fact I have been following this blog since I first started writing regularly on WordPress.

Orangu-tan Librarian has provided some enjoyable moments with the Shakespeare Quote Challenge. It was a real pleasure to see all those quotes each day.  I was honored to be tagged to participate.  Not only enjoyable tags and challenges but excellent book reviews, and humor are featured in the library.

With a positive review on North and South and a tip of the hat to Richard Armitage, how could I not love that review in particular.  I love how the reviews are indexed. Something I have not quite learned how to do. I am on this learning curve that doesn’t quite reach indexing. But I am proud to say my friend the Orangutan has done it by Author. I love that.

This is how the Orangutan Librarian announces 500 followers, (Congratulations on 500!)

I am literally speechless! Thank you so much for being such awesome bananaholic, monkey brains and following this blog as I ramble on about books! I can’t tell you how ecstatic, excited and extraordinarily wonderstruck it makes me to have you all on board!

Enjoy your special letter day today. Orang-Utan.  Today is all about you!

A-Z PE Challenge Day 14 (N)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with a letter a day from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the noble letter N!

The Blog dejour is:

NOTEABLEPAD

This is the day we get to meet the wonderful Fatima.  She is an avid reader, a book reviewer and a writer.  Now this month she is observing Ramadan, so she will not be posting as much, but if you get a chance, you should head over and check out her work. She has lovely reviews and I enjoy her writing.

She writes from her heart and I love that about her blog.  When I read her post That she calls  Muslims – The new Communists and spoke so eloquently about the “spectre of Islam”, I almost cried for the beauty and sadness that her words evoked. If you would like to read this touching post you may read it here.

Fatima is also lighthearted in her posts.  She has the most adorable penguin mug! I hope you will visit her blog and get to know her.  She is a jewel in the Blogosphere.

Fatima allowed us to meet her main character in her Work in Progress and she wrote this about her inspiration for her exciting character,

I love talking about Shahrazad, because she is everything I’m not. Her character is based on all the inspirational women in my life; my mother, my closest friends, women in my family and other women I look up to. In short,  she’s supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.

Enjoy your special letter day today. Fatima.  Today is all about you!

A-Z PE Challenge Day 13 (M)

This challenge is to post a different blog daily starting with a letter a day from A to Z.

Today we are celebrating the majestic letter M!

The Blog dejour is:

Coffee, Chocolate & Writing with Cats

With all those C’s you are probably wondering how this is a M page, well the creator of this blog is Millie Schmidt. She has the cutest blog on writing, writers block, cats and chocolate. Can it get any better?  Check it out and you will see that it is a great blog.

Millie comes from Australia and she takes the regular helpfulness to the next stage by incorporating her cat into the mix.  Want to see a great blog post? Then check out The nine stages of writing your novel – with cats.  It is amazing and amazingly cute.

It is obvious that she enjoys her coffee before she sits down to write as her blog is energetic and fun.  This is how she expresses herself on writing and being a published author.

By day I work as a WHS Officer, at night I dream about being a published author (and sometimes fit in writing too haha).

 

Enjoy your special letter day today. Millie Schmidt.  Today is all about you!
