Little Lov'n Monday

Little Lov'n Monday is a day we celebrate the work of fellow bloggers. Between now and Wednesday, post a link to an article, contest, interview, poem- anything you think deserves a little lov'n. Leave a link and be entered in LLM Giveaway. Deadline is August 14th. I'll leave this open to readers outside of the US and Canada, but instead of shipping a book, I'll email you a gift card. It's too costly for me to ship beyond Canada. On the fourth Saturday of each month, I'll announce a winner and will provide a list of books the winner may choose from.

Commit to visiting 5 blogs and leaving comments. If you do that, let us know. You might not care about winning a book, but I'm thinking you're a cool person who cares. Tell us that you shared some love. Thanks.

Thanks Doret!

And Susan, I wasn't varsity anything...I was on the pep squad though. Maybe I can shimmy my way up the top ten. :-)

I think Cynsations doesn't allow comments. Cynthia publishes something like 4 blogs. :-) She said she opted to not allow comments on this one. On my way. Thanks.
