When I started this blog on June 28, 2015, I was scared out of my wits. What would I write? Who would read it? How long could I keep it going?
With over 330 followers and 35,000 views, it seems that this blog’s very important number is “3”…
A little piece I wrote. No pay, but the almighty EXPOSURE.
Hi all! I’m delighted to announce my blog’s second anniversary! It was June 28, 2015 when I timidly but gamely set forth upon this writing adventure. And I’m thrilled and honoured that you clever readers have joined me on my journey. To mark this happy occasion, I’d like to repost the first piece I wrote for Crossed Eyes and Dotted Tees, which will stand in for today’s Friday Follies entry. Hope you like it (again)! 😀
I won this little contest! Thanks so much to Jessica Baker, whose blog “The Daily Rejection” (Don’t you just love that title, fellow writers?!) featured my winning writing prompt plus Part One of her fabulous story. It’s included here, below. Thanks again, Jessica, in advance, for my prize – the great gift basket you carefully assembled!
I apologize for the sparseness of my posts these days, but life has been throwing me for a loop, as it tends to do.

Bring it on.
That being said, I did not forget about the Writer’s Gift Basket Giveaway! The details of the contest were posted here: https://thedailyrejectionblog.com/2017/01/07/new-year-giveaway/
I have to say that I received a lot of really good entries, and that I wish I could give something to everyone. But unfortunately there can only be one winner, and there was one prompt in particular that instantly got me excited to get writing.
The winner is Ellie P, owner of https://crossedeyesanddottedtees.wordpress.com
Her prompt is as follows:

Hello out there, nice people! So this Saturday, February 13/16, I will be having a very clever WordPress expert coming over, to help me make some cool changes (enhancements?!) to this blog. My plan involves several items:
