Walking on Sunshine Blog Hop Party – Better late than never!

Thank you BSLOkay, so I mentioned yesterday that I wanted to join Hugh’s party and show some love to my fellow bloggers. Before I begin – here are the basic rules:

1. Choose a fellow blogger who you think spreads blog love.

2. Write a short post about them.

3. Entitle your post Walking On Sunshine Blog Hop PartyΒ (so others can find your post).

You can mention as many bloggers as you want in your post and write as much about them as you want, but try to not make your post too long.

Okay, you know me, so of course I’m going to take advantage of the last point. There are so many wonderful bloggers out there, people who are incredibly supportive and spread sunshine through their posts. I had to limit myself to fifteen (I’ll keep it brief, I promise), but – like I said – there are so many blogs I enjoy. It’s a great excuse for another party!

Callum McLaughlin – Callum is one of the most supportive online friends you could wish for. I’ve been following his blog for well over a year now, and I absolutely adore his poetry. His prose is spectacular too, and in addition to a poetry collection he’s published two novels – go check them out!

Mishka Jenkins – I love Mishka’s candid posts about her writing experiences, and she has some great features. She’s a supportive friend and always makes me smile. I’ve read, and thoroughly enjoyed, all of her work (she’s published five novels, and is busy working on her next project).

Part-Time Monster – I met Diana earlier this year, and always look forward to her posts. The content is varied, always entertaining, and she does a lot for the community as a whole – truly inspirational. She runs a weekend coffee share, which is a great deal of fun, so you should definitely check that out!

Taylor Grace – When I think of Taylor I think of sunshine! She has a wonderful sense of humour and many of her posts have me laughing out loud. Her features are terrific and designed to support fellow bloggers. Her delicious humour translates to her writing and I loved her debut novel.

Gene’o – His knowledge on social engagement and blogging is phenomenal and he always shares his expertise. He has a quick mind, quick wit and is the first to get involved in a project and offer his support.

Sourcerer – The blog is actually run by Gene’o and I’m mentioning it here because of the wonderful content and the diverse number of contributors on the site. It’s definitely worth a visit.

Comparative Geeks – David and Holly provide a geeks’ paradise! There is so much to choose from, even more to enjoy, and the site is friendly and welcoming. I’m sure you’ll love it πŸ™‚

Nerd in the brain – I discovered this site during a weekend coffee jaunt, and I’m so glad I did. I love the diversity. The posts are thought-provoking, fun and even educational. Nerd in the brain is a supportive blogger who spreads joy and positivity.

Mello-Elo – Eloise’s enthusiasm is catching! She has a big heart, is always ready to welcome friends and support her fellow blogger. I have a blast at her place, and have discovered some great articles.

The Story Reading Ape – what can I say about Chris Graham – he should get a blogging badge of honour! His support of indie authors is truly inspiring and the posts he shares are just wonderful. Check out his Halls of Fame, and the author resource section.

Janna T Writes – I love Janna’s short works of fiction, she hooks me every single time. She enjoys to explore different writing techniques, crosses genres, and can do just about anything with a good sentence! She’s inspiring.

Winter Bayne – Winter never fails to make me laugh. I love her writing style, it’s addictive. She creates strong characters, especially females – I seriously can’t get enough of her flash fiction pieces. Her posts are varied and packed full of personality.

Cee’s Photography – I really enjoy the sense of community at Cee’s blog. She runs a weekly feature, entitled ‘Share Your World.’ The questions are a lot of fun, and designed to start a conversation with fellow bloggers. This isn’t the only feature – she runs a variety of photo prompts.

Write on Sisters – Robin and Heather provide a treasure chest of writing resources. It’s a real gem of a site and the ‘sisters’ offer a wonderful balance, combining expertise and enthusiasm for the craft.

Gina Briganti – Gina is a good friend. She is the kind of person who always has a kind word to say. Her blog, not to mention her outlook on life, is a beacon of positivity. She writes a wonderful, and uplifting paranormal romance series, entitled Natural Gifts.


Thanks so much to Hugh for allowing me this opportunity to spread the love.

I’m off to chat to other people who joined the party!

I’m flattered to see myself listed amongst such great writers and bloggers! πŸ™‚

Thank you so much for your generosity, Mel. It’s wonderful to see so much positivity being spread around the blogosphere and to be included in that is a joy.

I can see why you couldn’t resist this wonderful blog party. I am honored to know you. Funny thing, I could say the same things about you that you’ve shared about all of these wonderful bloggers!

That is an amazing list. Love those people!

Oh, I’m so honored to be included in your sunny list! And I’m included with such fabulous blogs! Thank you so much. πŸ˜€ This has definitely made my day sunshine-y. πŸ™‚

    I’m so glad – the idea behind the hop is great and I love being able to spread the sunshine! I also enjoy being able to say thanks, because there’s always so much to look forward to πŸ™‚

Reblogged this on Nerd in the Brain and commented:
I’m so proud to be included in such an awesome list…and such an awesome idea! πŸ˜€

Thank you so much for participating in my blog hop party, Mel. As for being late, no worries, I’ve had guests turning up way after it was suppose to finish, but nobody cares about that when some blog loving’ is being spread amount us all. The party goes on for as as long as it likes and I’ll be hosting another blog hop in the coming months.

I’ll certainly be checking out the list of bloggers you have mentioned. I already follow some of them but I’ll check the rest out as well.

Have a great week, and I look forward to reading your posts now that I am following your blog as well.
With very best wishes,
Hugh

    Thank you, Hugh. I will look forward to reading your posts, meeting new people, and taking part in other great events to spread some blogging love! It’s great of you to stop by πŸ˜€
    Best wishes
    Mel

Ah! Thank you so much πŸ˜€ This put a massive smile on my face!

Of course, you should have put yourself on the list! I remember when I first started blogging and you were one of the first people I met through blogging, and you gave such incredible support. You’ve never turned me down when I’ve asked for advice or help. You should certainly be on everyone’s list πŸ™‚

Great list of other bloggers as well, it’s nice to feel part of such a supportive community!

    Aw, thanks, Mishka. That’s so lovely. I remember meeting you too and you remain one of my favourite bloggers. Thanks again for all your incredible support – you’re awesome πŸ˜€

Thanks so much for the mention! I’m so glad I met you too and love your posts, both on Sourcerer and on your own site. 😊
