Tabor said...

Once again I am humbled. But I also want to know how you have time to read all of these posts! My blogroll is growing and I find I cannot visit as often as I would like!

Thanks, btw, for your support and advice on blog memory---on this new one, I have been using pics already saved at FB, HA! Your tip was brilliant!

kcinnova said...

These are all lovely, Hilary, and I esp. appreciated Protege's POTW. WOW! This is the first time I've been able to work my way through the list and visit each one. I am sure I did not deserve to be counted in with such company, but I do thank you for the honor.
I second the nomination of Mary Alice's post!

Hi Hilary, I read three of the posts - good choices!

You are either a fast reader or you spend a lot of time reading - or both. :)

I've read 2 so far today and enjoyed them both. Thanks Hilary for doing all the footwork.

Karen said...

Congrats to all the winners!

imbeingheldhostage said...

Oh Hilary, this November daily posting is really kicking me in the glutes. I haven't read any of these--yet. I'm bookmarking for a quick run through tomorrow. Thank you for doing this. You have been finding some terrific reads for us!

ethelmaepotter! said...

Hilary, Thank you sooooooo very much, AGAIN! I'm not sure what I'm doing to be placed in the honor of such company, but I hope to continue doing it. Will visit everyone else tonight.

smiles4u said...

Thank you Hilary! I am completely honored. I loved when David did this but didn't have a clue that you carried this on. Many of the blogs I now read are one's I found through him. I look forward to much great reading as I go check out these other blogs. Thank you once again!! Lori

Wendy said...

Oh, those posts look great! Will check them out.

Country Girl said...

As Tabor put it so aptly, I need more time in the day to read all these wonderful offerings.

Thanks for showing us so many different blogs out there, Hilary!

SandyCarlson said...

I will make the rounds. Thanks for doing my homework!

Hilary said...

• I agree, Nessa. :)

Will visit them and increase my blogging awareness.

gaelikaa said...

Merisi's link is not working. For me at least.

Hilary said...

Thanks for letting me know, Gaelikaa. I've fixed that now. :)

Moannie said...

Back to say I've read them all and all are brilliant. Thanks to you Hilary, it cannot be an easy job. We all appreciate the work you put in on our behalf.

Land of shimp said...

Hello, Hilary! My goodness, that was an entirely delightful surprise, thank you so much for it. My husband has been on vacation this week, so I haven't been online much. I thought the comments section on my post had simply misfired, and was thrilled to find out it had not.

You really gave my day a lovely lift, and I'm very grateful for that. Thank you.

I shall return here and visit elsewhere, although the pace of that is somewhat dictated by my husband's vacation this week.

Seriously, that was more invigorating than a cup of coffee.

Hilary said...

• Thanks kindly, Moannie. It's nice to be appreciated. :)

• My pleasure, Land of Shrimp. I'm glad it gave you a boost. I've never been compared to caffeine before. ;)

Pseudonymous High School Teacher said...

Well thank-you for the shout out Hilary (and anonymous). I have been out of the loop as I am attempting nanowrimo this month.

But I thank-you very much and will check out the other posts too.

for the honour of making my post take part in your celebration of blogs from all over the world. Thank you for continuing this wonderful tradition in the footsteps of David of Authorblog. I appreciate that you take the time and effort to brighten our day with your selection.
Thank you also to Gaelikaa for mentioning the POTD to me!
