welcome to my blog

welcome to my blog

i'm Michelle Gregory, a 55-year-old wife, mom, Jesus-follower, beginning French learner, and Arizona native who moved to Montana 6 years ago (yeah--that was a huge change). i collect way too many craft supplies (and occasionally use them), spend way too much time on Instagram and Facebook, obsessively check my email, and own 2 horses, 2 dogs, and 1 very large black cat. i've been working on the sequel to my one fantasy novel for 9 years (don't you feel better now?). i haven't done anything here for a long time, but maybe jumping back into blogging will get the writer side of my brain humming again.

all of that may be more than you wanted to know, but anyway...

your opinion on a blogfest, please

i've been toying with this idea for some time... hosting a blogfest.

is it worth the time and effort i'd have to put into it?

if i did a button, i'd need help. anybody know how to do that?

subject matter - i had the idea to have people post their favorite scene from anything they've written, so a Favorite Scene blogfest.

what do you think?

I think it sounds fun. :)

Michelle, just participating in blogfests has doubled my followers in the past month or so. So, not only are they fun, but very useful for increasing your readership.

Of course, I would participate.

P.S. I understand that most people use "Mr. Linky" to create the blog list of participants. http://www2.blenza.com/linkies/wizard.php I went to the website and it looks like you shoud use the "auto-linky".

Yes its worth it! I love blog fests, and am planning one of my own when I hit 100 followers. Check out Andrew Rosenbergs post on How to host a blog fest at:

Its very inepth.

Good Luck; and hope to see a blog fest here soon.

I would be game. I think most of the blogfests use Mr. Linky but I don't know how to use it. Sorry I can't help you there. I will be emailing you soon. :)
