AtoZ Sites I am really enjoying visiting.


So I meant to do this yesterday since we were halfway through, but, with beautifully ironic timing the widget we use on our Wittegen Press blog to allow people to subscribe to our newsletter on MailChimp blew up on the very day we were actually talking about the mailing list on the blog. M is for Mailing List is over here at Wittegen Press, if you'd like to see it :) I therefore spent yesterday trying to figure out what had broken and then switching 26 posts, 1 page and the widgets on the site to a new plugin.


AtoZChallenge Sites I Am Visiting Every Day

I record all the sites I visit and who visits me in a spreadsheet so I can keep track. I'm actually visiting over 50 sites every day, but here are a few I've visited almost every day and think everyone should check out. That's not to say there aren't other wonderful ones as well, but I had to make some choices and here are my top 10 :)
So there you have it, some of the wonderful blogs I have been visiting this month in no particular order. I look forward to finding more as the challenge goes on as well as continuing to visit all of those I am enjoying.

Do you have any favourite blogs in the AtoZ you think I should visit? Please tell me about them in the comments.


I have two other blogs that I share with my twin Sophie in the AtoZ as well, so I'm going to plug them too :)
  • Wittegen Press Blog - we are talking about the whys behind some of our books and on the day of the post giving the book in question away FREE
  • Fantasy Boys XXX - daily drabbles (100 words) about fantasy boys inspired by colours. Some posts have adult content.

    1. Thank you :) I've really been enjoying your disasters - always interesting to find out what could kill us next ;) I used to love the disaster movies of the 70s - they were classics.

    1. The first year I did the AtoZ I got so lost and couldn't remember where I had been, so last year I started a spreadsheet and it makes life sooooo much easier :) It's so hard isn't it - so many wonderful things to read.

  9. Thank you so much for the shout out! And visiting 50 blogs a day! Holy smokes, consider me wildly impressed. There's a couple sites not on your list that I've been visiting that you might like (though I wouldn't be surprised if you have, in fact, visited them).

    One is J.H Moncrieff with a "things that go bump in the night" theme http://www.jhmoncrieff.com/.

    The other one is Storytelling Matters with daily posts about ghosts https://storytellingmatters.wordpress.com/.

    Both are super creepy and very interesting. Thanks for all the great posts so far, and happy continued A to Z! :)

  14. Thank you for sharing. I'm going to have to check some of these out (those that I'm not already visiting). We're buying a house and they're KILLING us with paperwork, so I don't have time to visit all the blogs I want. As I try to read blogs every day, I'm skipping all the ones that don't grab me within the first paragraph or so and moving onto the next.

    1. I sympathise - paperwork is never fun, especially when you want to be doing something else. Good luck with the house buying, hope it is all going smoothly even with all the bureaucracy.

    1. Its weird because you were definitely on the Theme Reveal list - maybe technology bungled as it is want to do. I see you managed to find an N in the end :)

  19. Tasha, thanks so much for including CollectInTexas Gal in your list. I look forward every morning to your visit and comment. You are amazing to visit 50 + blogs a day. As a commenter you are tops with a positive sentence or two about the post and then on to sharing your own personal experiences relating to the post.

    I have to say, since reading your posts this challenge, I am getting more and more interested in your Science Fiction genre. It's fascinating how mythology based the characters are. I'm very impressed with the research and knowledge it takes to write on this level. Thank-you for an April of learning and appreciation of authors, characters, books and movies I would not otherwise have known.

  23. I'm finally getting caught up on my reading after this crazy pants week! Thank you so much for including me!! Funny enough, you and I are regularly reading a lot of the same blogs. I'm keeping track of mine by having a separate shelf for A to Z blogs in my Feedly. It's crazy how quickly it fills up! There are a LOT of good blogs and themes out there this year. I'm really having a great time catching up on them today. Elle @ Erratic Project Junkie
