Seriously, you aren't sick of me yet?

Don't answer that! The next time I post this much will be in April, for the A to Z Challenge, which I am SO looking forward to! I'm one of the hosts again this year, which is way fun, because you get to meet lots of new people, and you get to unveil cool stuff, like what's happening on Monday, Jan. 30.

One of the reasons I love the A to Z Challenge is that it's just good ol' blogging, plain and simple. It's a celebration of blogging, and I adore blogging, and blogs and posting and commenting and following and pretty much everything about the whole blog culture. 

But first, we are wrapping up the Celery Tree Big Blog Tour today and tomorrow. So please follow me to the awesome and amazing Jessica Bell's blog, The Alliterative Allomorph!


  1. Just been over to Jessica Bell's !!!

    Yay! take care

  2. I'm looking forward to the A-Z challenge!

  3. Jess is some multi-tasking wild woman! *waving at ya, JB* :)

  4. I'm gonna sign up for A-Z and heading to Jessica's now.

  5. A to Z. Hm. Maybe I should compose a few entries now just to get a head start?! Wow. that was awesome last year. Or maybe groovy, since that is my generation's word.

  6. Can't wait for the A-Z Challenge, and I'm glad you are hosting again! Heading over to Jessica's now. :)

  7. A-Z ? Sounds like great fun. Thanks so much Karen for doing so much, for the rest of us warped bloggers.

  8. You write; we read. About as regularly as the sun coming up in the morning.

    Some things don't change.

  9. We could never get sick of you, Karen. Can't wait for Monday!

  10. Alex, This explains why you are a Blog of Note. Guess what, I'm a Blog of Note, too-- among spammers. I'm getting a dozen anonymous spam comments a day now.

    Rob-bear, How nice of you to come out of your hibernation to visit and leave such a pleasant comment!

    Donna, I hope you sign up for the A to Z Challenge. Your blog is addictive, can't wait to see what you'd come up with daily.

  11. I'm so glad you joined to co-host again! Monday will be exciting!

    Heading over to visit Jessica Bell.

    Shannon at The Warrior Muse, co-host of the A-to-Z; we're gearing up for the upcoming 2012 A-to-Z Challenge!

  12. Hi Karen .. Jess has done a great post - I read, I saw and now I need to get there to comment!

    Cheers Hilary

  13. I'm looking forward to and dreading all the same time, the A-Z challenge. It's a massive feat and great fun but I struggle for time. I do hope to be giving it a go though. I will pop over and say Hi and Jessica's blog :)

  14. Good luck to all you A to Zheads out there.
