Friend Of The Week

Donna Stone

Are you ready to make a new blogging friend?

This week, I’d like to introduce you to Donna Stone – a novelist and self-proclaimed book nerd!

Donna is very busy with her craft! She writes:

I am currently deep into edits of my first novella for young adults, a story to encourage young ladies to accept themselves and their families. Another YA, an adoption message of hope from tragic circumstance, is destined for the ACFW Genesis contest. A third book, a contemporary women’s still in the draft stage, travels a decades long love story marred by life and Alzheimer’s.

Be sure to visit Donna this week and extend her a warm welcome as our latest Friend of the Week at Friendship Friday. You can sample her writing at her latest Friendship Friday post, Beloved!

What’s On Your Playlist This Weekend?

Happy Valentine’s Day to you! What’s on your playlist this weekend? I”m currently listening to this beautiful ballad by Hunter Hayes called Wanted…

      Suzie, I’m so glad the Stumble Upon link-up us so timely for you!
      Be sure to check back later in the week so you can connect with everyone who comes after you as well!
      To make sure people know you’ve followed, be sure to leave a comment as Stumble Upon does not automatically notify you of your new followers (at least it doesn’t to the best of my knowledge).
      Have a great weekend and I look forward to connecting with you! 🙂

      Hi Mindy,

      Thanks for joining us – I’m SO happy to have you at our party too!

      I did drop you a few notes about the links (this part is for EVERYONE). Please note that there are currently TWO link-ups on Friendship Friday each week. The first link-up is for SOCIAL MEDIA link-ups ONLY. The second link-up – the one with the photos – is for blog posts.

      I am asking EVERYONE to PLEASE post to the correct lists and I am now enforcing this to make it easier for those who are participating in the Social Media Boost to quickly go through and follow everyone on the list – and to make those who are connecting with other bloggers to SEE what everyone is sharing!

      This week I contacted the few bloggers whose links were removed from the Social Media Boost, explained what happened, and asked them to repost on the Friendship Friday list because there were only a few but my time is limited and I will not be able to do this in the future – so everyone, PLEASE, read the rules and scroll through everything before linking up!

      Thank you so much! 🙂

    Happy Valentines Day!
