Happy Blogging Birthday, Nicola!

Happy First Birthday to the crabbit old bat's - aka Nicola Morgan's - blog!

If you haven't been there before, go visit her hilarious, yet highly informative, Help I Need a Publisher! blog - you may learn a thing or two!

Health warning: it ain't for the faint-hearted!! But if you are a struggling, aspiring writer, you might just learn where you are going wrong.

Many congrats, Nicola.

Thanks, Jo - i'll check you out!

I hate Nicola really. I mean, it must get boring, being right all the time...

Coming over to celebrate Nicola's birthday with you ;) Nice to meet you ... loving your blog! I think I'll stick around for a while and browse.

I have cake over at Chocolate Reality .. what better way to celebrate a birthday than to serve up delicious cake :)


Jemi Fraser said...

I've popped over from Nicola's party as well. Nice looking blog you've got here :) I'm now a new follower!

Welcome, Steena and Jemi! :)

Nicola Morgan said...

If I'm shlurring then blame a) exshaustion and b) too musch shparkly shtuff over at my party. You know that clearing upnphase, when you start drinking the ends of bottles??? No, of course not.

Anyway, your blog isn't new to me but it's fab and full of people serious about writing. And I do so love it when people are serious about writing AND manage to seem to have lives as well.

Hooray for writing and LIFE!

And I am now off to copy that incredible chocolate cake recipe on Steena's blog. Honestly, are we supposed to resist? It's sheer bribery!

Congratulations on getting over 200.

Susie Nott-Bower said...

Thanks, Dave - YAY!
Nicola, please be very careful on the way home as it's extremely shlippy, er, slippy out there and you wouldn't want to do yourself an injury. Thanks so much for dropping by, especially given the VAST party you've generated - was a great idea. Congrats on your first birthday, and may there be many, many more.

Indeed, here's to writing and life and getting the balance right.
