Lana's Blogiversary and Moonrat Day

Politics aside, today is notable for two other reasons. I give you these below.

1. Today is the one year blogiversary of my lovely wife, Lana. Her "The Dreaming Tree" has gained her quite a bit of recognition, and in honor of the support that everyone has given her, she's going to be giving away one of her awesome paintings. I'd try to win it myself but I get to see them all as they are being created. And that's the absolute best. Check her blogiversary post out and enter to win HERE.

2. It's Moonrat day in honor of our favorite editor. To play along, win prizes, make comments, write haiku, and enjoy many other fun things, check out Celebrating the Moonrat. I think you'll enjoy.

... Just to say I've got an awful lot out of both your blogs as I've dipped in over the year. Thanks to you both for all the work and imagination you've put in.

Demon Hunter said...

Virtual Voyage, thank you for the kind comments. Much appreciated.

Demon hunter, thanks.

Heff, I thought it was with an "o" too but I wouldn't dare correct my wife's spelling, dude.

Miladysa, thankee.

Monique said...

Well done to Lana. I go there once in a while and always find something that interests me.

David Cranmer said...

Charles, Lana's paintings are wonderful and since I love art and the chance to win free goodies I will be heading over there.

Sam said...

Lovely paintings! Talented lady!
Thanks for the heads'up!

Lana Gramlich said...

Aw shucks, baby. Thanks for the shout out. *snuzzles* But when was your blogiversary? You started before I did, I know. I'll have to go back through your archives...

Lana Gramlich said...

Note to self; Charles' blogiversary (being an unreal word, there's no "right" way to spell it, ;) is May 16th.

CrazyCath said...

Congrats to Lana. Just occasionally bobbed in and will do again. Love her paintings...

Ello said...

Congratulations to Lana! One year! Wow! I'm proud to be a regular reader of yours and Lana's blogs!

Christina said...

I'll have to go over and see the art pieces she has up. I really enjoy her art and nature pictures.

I think she's slowly convincing me to move to a less crowded, more green environment.

Barbara Martin said...

Both of your blogs have provided inspiration in my own writing: Lana's for her paintings and photographs, and Charles, for your indepth explanations on writing and writers.

Steve Malley said...

I want to say something clever, but I am so damned knackered from moving. And there's still more to go...

Donnetta Lee said...

Hi, Charles. Will check both out. Have had much enjoyment from Lana's blog. D

moonrat said...

ANNA-LYS said...

Congrats to both occasions my friend.

It must be lovely to see an other persons creation grow in front of Your eyes.

Charles Gramlich said...

Monique, she takes some great nature photos.

David Cranmer, good. One of her originals is well worth having.

Lana, I didn't really have any idea when my blogiversar was. I've been at it for a while now.

Crazycath, so do I.

Ello, and thanks for your support.

Christina, she and I are much alike in enjoying green space.

Barbara, thank you.

Steve Malley, get some rest my friend.

Donnetta, thanks. You'll never be disappointed on Lana's site.

Moonrat, I always enjoy your posts and the inside information!

Vesper said...

Time goes by too quickly...

Happy (belated) Blogiversary to Lana! I think it's time I headed there...

:-)

ivan said...

Geez.

I my first year of my own blog, I thought I'd show a little flash by republishing some of my old short stories.

The result in comments? zero.

Guess I didn't impress them.

But the unpublished lady bloggers, some with an edge, could draw 40 comments every time.
No, not Lana. She draws them in, but she has talent.

Charles Gramlich said...

Vesper, it certainly does.

Ivan, I think some of it has to do with how may comments folks leave on other blogs. Someone who comments a lot will likely get quite a few comments back. Or so it seems to me.

Happy anniversary, Lana!!
