Ahhh!! 100!!!

This week has sucked. Period. I've been busy with school and work, and things have just had this icky off vibe. I can't quite put my finger on it. Nothing went badly, per se, but like I said... icky off vibe.

Imagine my surprise, however, when I log onto my blog and find...

My follower count has grown, finally reaching that oh-so-elusive 100 mark!!! It totally made my day!

Welcome, new followers!! I'm so glad you've decided to join me here at 52 Weeks of Wordage!
I think this is a good point to have people start to introduce yourselves. 1,2,3, GO!

Who are you?
Do you have a blog? What is it?
Where do you hail from?
What are your hobbies and interests?

C'mon, guys! I want to get to know you all!

P.S. Even if you've been following for a while, leave a comment! I want to get to know ALL of my readers! :)

What a great idea. I'll have to do this on my blog--as soon as I get over that little surgery I have to suffer through a little later this morning.

My name is Maria and I recently found you, after you found me.

My cyber home is at where I talk about homesteading, frugal living, dogs and oh yes...writing.

I'm only posting twice a week right now so I can get two manuscripts ready for my editors, but I should be back to more regular postings in a couple of weeks.

Currently residing in Texas on six acres in the middle of nowhere.

Good idea for a blog post. O.k. here it goes.

My name is Christine Danek. I think I am more of a recent follower.

My blog is
I talk mainly about my crazy writing journey and how I can juggle my passion, family, work and well just life.

I live in Pennsylvania and am currently under a ton of snow.

I love to read, write and listen to music. I have many other interests but that would take up too much space.

Congratulations on your bunch of followers! Want to get to know your stalkers?

Uhm, oookay... I am Diandra, and write short stories over at

as well as my own strange opinions on writing at

I live in Bonn, Germany, and work as a translator of medical reports. In my free time (besides writing stories and letters and strange things), I cook and read and play guitar & harp and pester the BoyFriend and want to learn to spin wool and try not to kill plants and am generally considered a crazy person.

And now I'm going to stalk out some of your followers. (^v^)

oh poo. I was totally going to be the first one, but apparently I closed the window too soon :(
Anyway, I'm Vader, over at The Dork Side (
My hobbies/obsessions are writing, sewing and crochet, geekiness, Doctor Who (oh wait, I think that goes under geekiness), reading, and hilarity. And all of this is done with a dose of ultra-hyperness/craziness thrown in.
Congrats Stef! and now I'm totally going to go check your followers' blogs :D

Okay, I'm kindof embarassed because I've had this page open for days, but just haven't gotten around to introducing myself properly.

My name's Jason Wright, a geek and aspiring writer in Columbia, SC. (Please don't hold that against me.) You can check out my writing blog at - though I should really change the title, since I'm shifting back to a boring daylight orientation.

I love comics, superheroes, science-fiction, fantasy, cop/detective stories, crime stories... You know, I just love stories in general as well as games of any and all stripes.

A mighty congratulations to Stef! She's a very pleasant lady, and is devoted to her writing. :)

Hello... oops, I'm late for this party - just got round to catching up.
I'm Clare, I live in Merseyside UK and I've just started blogging - writing, poetry, funny + stuff loosely related to writing and ideas.
I think I came across Stef on Twitter first, then followed her here.
Summer said…
Hello! My name is Summer Lane. I have lived in Raleigh, North Carolina for nine years. I spent two in Asheville after graduating from high school in 2005. I am originally from Austin, Texas.

At the moment I work full-time as a waittress in a family-owned bar. I hate waiting tables, but I do love where I work. I am going to school full-time to be a massage therapist; I will graduate in April 2011.

Other than massage therapy, I love reading, writing (mostly journals), swimming, camping, dogs, movies, and music (I played the tuba through middle and high school.. hopefully I will be able to buy a tuba once I get my big girl job).

I really don't know how I stumbled upon this blog, but I am definitely liking it so far. I haven't posted anything yet, but hopefully I'll find some inspiration with all these creative minds around here!

"Yellow List"

Exercise #83 : "Yellow List" What things are yellow? Make a list. At the end of the five minutes, note the three you find most curious. Ah, yellow. One of my least favorite colors. I mean, it's nice and all, but there are so many versions of this color that are simply eye-raping. Anyways, on with the list. Things That Are Yellow: bananas school buses yellow bell pepper tennis balls Post Shredded Wheat boxes (see right) lemons canaries the middle traffic light traffic lines the sun cheddar cheese hay corn butter cabs #2 pencils grapefruit raincoats (stereotypical ones, anyway) bees squash yellow jackets (I HATE those things!) the yolk of an egg scrambled eggs or an omelet peanut M&Ms the Simpsons various flowers rubber duckie etc... So that's my list of yellow things! :) The most curious? Well... I'll go with... but none of those are curious! That's silly. Check back later today for my 5th Character Profile on Nolan Ha
