|To all of us from Jules at Trying to Get Over the Rainbow|
Jules wanted us to spread the Blog Love by displaying the lovely Pass the Love 2011 Award. So thank you Jules and thanks to all of the wonderful bloggers and other readers out there who keep me motivated to keep posting on Tossing It Out.
Blogging from A to Z April Challenge who have been helping us get the word out to others about this incredible blog event. I've already posted previous thank yous here and here. Please visit these blogs, leave a comment, and follow them if you haven't done so already.
Here are some more:
Laura Eno at A Shift in Dimensions gave the Challenge a complete post and added the badge.

Elizabeth Twist gave us a boost with her post on February 1.
Cherie at Surrounded by Books had a post on January 31 that I had missed.
Rachel at Rachel Morgan Writes put a very clever A to Z themed post.
Badge in Sidebar:
Michael at In Time... his motto is "Creativity is a terrible thing to waste" --a rally cry for some creative A to Z thinking?
The Golden Eagle at The Eagle's Aerial Perspective has added her support.
Clarissa Draper's blog, Listen to the Voices, has the badge on the sidebar.
You'll also find the badge at Halloween Overkill in addition to all sorts of Halloween related things.

Kristal at Kristal Lee Romances--where love is Magick .
M.J. Fifield at My Pet Blog put the badge not at the sidebar, but smack dab can't miss it big on the top of the page.
Niki from Wool'n'Nuts is joining us from New Zealand for the second year.
Robyn at Putting Pen to Paper has last year's badge up but it links to the 2011 announcement so that works too.
The badge is also on the sidebar at Rachel Morgan Writes , another new participant in 2011.
Holly Jones from On.... makes mention that she is participating in the Challenge
Everybody's favorite champion of being naked, Hart from Confessions of a Watery Tart, included the Challenge in a big way on her post called Grow Your Blog.
Ciara at New Kids on the Writer's Block gave A to Z a special plug.
Madeleine at Scribble and Edit featured the Challenge.
Jeanmarie is A Writer in Progress who will also be progressing through the alphabet in April.
And Blog Lovin' Doesn't Stop There!
Like I said above, please stop in to say hello, thank you, or whatever to as many of these as you can. After all, the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is about networking and making new blog friends. And speaking of networking, don't forget some other challenges that are going on or coming up.
Rachael Harrie at Rach Writes has spearheaded the ambitious Writer's Platform Building Crusade. The sign up list is now closed but that shouldn't stop you from checking in with those who are participating to follow their progress. Many who are signed up for the Crusade are also Blogging from A to Z including Rachael herself. Between the two events I think we are going to see some serious blog growth and networking happening between now and May. Thank you Rachael and good luck to all of the Crusaders.
Coming this Wednesday is The Bernard Pivot Blogfest brought to us by Nicole Ducleroir. Now I'd never heard of a Bernard Pivot before but his questionaire is relatively simple and enjoyable. There's a whole bunch of us already signed up for this and you can sign up too by just clicking on the above link. More networking and getting-to-know-you type fun.
Larry Cavanaugh is going to host the SUPER 8 DEBUT ALBUMS BLOG HOP on February 28. This will be his first hosting of a blog event and I hope everyone will show him support in this endeavor and of course follow his blog while you're at it.
Which brings me to the guest spot that my A to Z Team mate Alex Cavanaugh did on Stephen Tremp's Breakthrough Blogs. Alex offers some great arguments as to why bloggers should become involved in different blog events. If you missed this post and you're still sitting on the fence about the Blogging from A to Z April Challenge, I suggest you read what Alex has to say about the topic of networking through something like this. A special thanks to Stephen Tremp for giving Alex this opportunity. Stephen's been a big help in getting the word out about the A to Z Challenge and I have a feeling we're going to be hearing a lot more from him on the subject.
I will have a special post this Friday February 18th with some more great A to Z news--don't miss it!
|The White Rabbit button comes to us courtesy of Jeremy at iZombie. We're going to experiment to see if we can solve the mystery of followers whose blogs are missing--or are they? I've put it on my sidebar directing new followers to a welcome page where I request them to leave a comment with a blog address. We'll see if this helps.|
Be sure to visit some or all of the blogs listed above and show them some blog loving.
