Blogfest - I Got U, Sharon Mayhew

WELCOME TO: The Writer's Ally aka Sheri Larsen's
I Got U Blogfest!


And the "Star of the Show" here at Book Dreaming today is:

Sharon Mayhew of Random Thoughts

The point of today's blogfest is to show some love to a fellow blogger.


I chose someone VERY special
to me,
yet under-appreciated
by me.


Sharon was my very first follower.

That's right.
Look at the follower gadget. It says 480.
But Sharon was my 1st, non-family, somehow found-me-and-liked-what-she-saw-enough-to-click-follow follower. And I will forever love her for that.

She validated me and gave me hope and a reason to keep blogging. And I will forever love her for that.

She was the first to tell me she liked the idea of my story and that I should keep going. And I will forever love her for that.

So why is she under-appreciated, you say? Because I don't visit her nearly enough. She blogs more in the evening. I blog more throughout the day. That means she doesn't pop up on my sidebar when I'm online. So...I forget to visit her too often.

Yet she forgives me. And I will forever love her for that.

So today is Sharon Mayhew Day!!

Take a moment and help me show her some love by
following her blog


Thank you, Sharon!
I Got U!

You both are like peas and carrots (borrowed that from Forest Gump). Sharon is always so supportive and goes above and beyond whenever your in need. She also offers both useful writing advice and insightful social commentary. I treasure my link to her....and to you!
