Hello my friends, and happy weekend to you! I can’t believe this is the last day in January. How nutters, right? Time has been zooming by as usual, but we’re still on … blogiversary! In fact, today we have newbie (to ALBTLABS) author Elizabeth Andrews! As she hasn’t been here before I hope you’ll show her lots of love. 🙂 In fact, she responded to a twitter call about posts, and look how it all worked out. Plus she has all the bases covered, so there will be no more commentary from me! So without further ado … Elizabeth!
First of all, I’d like to thanks Limecello for hosting me today. Happy blogiversary! Here’s to many more!
I’ve been pondering celebrations. There are so many reasons for them: anniversaries, weddings, new jobs, retirement, births, birthdays, holidays. Heck, I’ve been known to celebrate just having a day off from my Evil Day-job. Continue reading →
My doves I am so happy to be writing this post and not doing anything else! If only I could turn playing with you all into a career. Alas, this is a money pit instead of a money maker. But I guess that’s why they call things a labor of love, yes? >.> Ahem. ANYWAY – no downers here! Today we have Fiona Lowe! Whee! To my shock, she’s a first time ALBTALBS guest! Everyone give her a really super warm welcome! Now, Fiona’s got all the good stuff – giveaway etc – covered, so this is the last you’ll hear from me! 😀 Yay copy and paste! 😉
♬Sing Happy Birthday, blow out the candles! ♬ Happy 4th blogiversary to Limecello!Continue reading →
Hello darlings!!! I can’t believe January is coming to a close. Meep! So, I’m glad everything has continued on as scheduled, and fingers crossed for a fabulous 2015! Along those fabulous lines, we have our good friend Lorelie Brown with us today, sharing a very tasty excerpt of her newest release Ahead in the Heat (which just came out on January 6th). Whoo! Enjoy! <3Continue reading →
My dears, I’m so excited about our guest today!!! Not only do we have the fantastically fabulous Leslie Kelly for Blogiversary, it’s also her birthday! You know how I love birthday guests, and this is double the fun! And you know, Leslie Kelly! So everyone jump on in for the fun!
Hi friends!!! Whee!!! We’re back on track for blogiversary with a giveaway and fun and YAY! … One of these years I’ll get it all right. And I’m so thrilled to welcome back Joely Sue Burkhart. She’s such a sweetheart and always a friend to ALBTALBS. Anyway, I know you’re not here to listen to me babble when there’s a giveaway on the line … 😉
Blogiversary marches on! And today we have Alexandra Christian visiting with us and joining the festivities! I put out a call for who wanted to play at ALBTALBS last year, and she’s someone who responded and wanted to guest during the Blogiversary. 😀 So here we go!

Hello friends! Today we have Jessica Scott guesting with us … AND MAN this post would’ve been perfect during Social Media for Social Good … or maybe not? Maybe SMSG is the pressure Jessica is talking about? That’s going to give me a headache/complex – so yeah. Let’s not go there. Anyway – let’s just go ahead with her post, shall we? :X
Why did the ALS Ice Bucket challenge go viral when so many others were not? What was it about that specific challenge – the calling out of your friends on social media to either dump a bucket of water over their head or write a check – that got so many people around the world and from vastly different socio economic backgrounds up off the computer/phone/tablet and into the spirit of it? Continue reading →
*Waves madly* As you can see I’m just … out of it – and confusing myself as to what/how to title these posts. Also I was just … down for the count the last few days. Anyway – the important thing is that Cathy Yardley is visiting with us today because it’s her BIRTHDAY!!! I asked her if she would be willing to write a post at ALBTALBS and she kindly agreed and that is wonderful!
So without further ado … Cathy!
The Answer to Life, The Universe, and Everything
I turn 42 today.
I thought about listing 42 things that I’ve learned, or that I’m grateful for, or just stuff you don’t know about me. But that’s a long list, and admittedly, a good number of years to cover and distill down to just 42 things.
I know right? Fucking craziness! Another post and BLOGIVERSARY!!! Well, as part of my social media call, Deelylah Mullin responded too! And she was all “hell yeah!” And I was like “*dudebro* YEAH!” So here we are! More festivities after Festivus! 😉 You know how it goes.
