a race for me #IWSG

What a wonderful way to share your support with fellow writers! Click on the badge above to START!


Something that I have lost after having Babykins, is my online mojo (about the time when Darkspell first released). Several friends told me that I had great online presence. It was great here in Blogland as well as Facebook. Now, I find myself struggling against my previous numbers and, when I think about it, I feel disheartened.

I try not to think about how many of my friends have 15 to 20 (even more) Facebook likes for saying something witty. My friends like everything they say, but when I say something, I get about 3 or 4 likes if I am lucky--and *not* from the lollipop guild, either.

I wonder ... what will it take for me to turn their heads--something that will wow them? I bet so, because they swarm over the ones who have struck "gold" in one way or another.


Has this happened to you? How do you deal with it? Which is your preferred platform and why? What is your mantra?

Reflections on #AtoZChallenge




Welcome Azalea--the perfect A to Z pony who has both A and Z in her name! Brilliant, isn't it?

I spent a few hours drawing these ponies and my daughters even more, coloring them. I spent a few more half hours on the little story lines and the some more converting everything into coloring pages. I had everything scheduled ahead of time so that I may enjoy the part of reading and commenting!

And here we are. Reflections time.

While I scrambled away, keeping up with replying to my personal blog's comments and updating every post at night with the ponie's names, I also enjoyed visiting everyone and commenting and following. I mourn the fellowshipping and unity we all shared during this roller coaster of fun now that we're all through. But the best part of this is that I've made new friends and rekindled old ones.

I feel that the A to Z Team handled quite well, as always! I appreciate how the staff took on bloggers and faithfully commented on them (at least, that's how it appeared each time I visited a participating blog).

Thanks for the blogging experience of the year, guys! J

My A to Z Challenge Top 5! #AtoZChallenge #mlp #fanart



Hello my dearies! You guys are SO awesome. I want to thank every one of you for being my faithful commenters, you made my A to Z possible and FuN!

After combing through my A to Z posts and tallying (so many faithful visitors), I've decided to reward all my blogging buddies because I love you all so much!  You have pushed me forward with much enthusiasm that I need to share my appreciation to everyone.

The best way I can get all 27 ponies out to you (along with their little stories), is by email. Please shoot me one whenever you get the chance (so I know you're interested) and I will send you the printable pages.*



Happy Friday! and HaPpY May 1st!




*I have not published these yet, but have formatted them using PDF. Thanks again! J

Z is for ... #AtoZChallenge #mlp #fanart

WhEeEeEeeee! We have survived the crazy-but-fun-rollercoaster-of-blogging-friendships! Parting is such sweet sorrow says Shakespeare. He is right...

So, here is my last pony. I am rather fond of this one (besides Xerophyta because she's such a cutie punk goth girl!)

Her name starts with a Z and her cutie mark is the flower of her name. Meet _ _ _ _ _ _. Feeling one of a kind, seeks Prince Valerian's audience to bring her entire clan to settle in the meadows beside the crystal green lake.

Can you guess her name*?






Remember, I will give my top 5 commenters for my A to Z Challenge a printable coloring book of all 27 ponies (I have illustrated a pony for the Reflections post) at the end in May.


*I will post her name at the end of the day!

How has your journey to the end of the alphabet been treating you? Has it been everything you expected? Are you a newbie? A veteran? Are you planning on next years?

update: I will announce my top 5 commenters along with my email address tomorrow for your A to Z Challenge pony printable pages! Thanks for playing along and all your lovely praises. J

Y is for ... #AtoZChallenge #mlp #fanart


Her name starts with a K and her cutie mark is the flower of her name. Meet _ _ _ _ _ _. She loves casting love potions and mismatching couples...that is, until she falls for Adonis who hasn't noticed her yet.

Can you guess her name*?
