A to Z Challenge - O - and Blog Happenings

For the A to Z Challenge, I am featuring some awesome bloggers. These individuals have offered so much support of my book, CassaStar, and me on my blogger journey. Of course, I’ll be keeping up with the world of movies, music, and pop culture stuff as well! Ninjas are just talented that way...


One Significant Moment at a Time
Nicole is a diversified writer with a wonderful heart. She’s received awards, had short stories published, and is working on a novel. She’s traveled extensively, learned foreign languages, and describes herself as free-spirited. Spend a few moments with Nicole - you’ll be glad you did!

Big announcement from Jo at Shoveling in a Jo Storm! Her husband is in the film industry (and has worked on films such as Iron Man 2 and 127 Hours) and now he’s finally making his own movie. There’s a contest for those who help spread the word (including a face plate from Iron Man 2) so check out Jo’s site for details!

Hart at Confessions of a Watery Tart hit 500 followers this weekend! She’s now closer to naked world domination.

Sorry, no nakedness here. That should come as a great relief to my followers!

I wish Jo's husband great success with his debut feature. "Iron Man 2" and "127 Hours"? - Wow, this guy is the real deal :)

Congrats on Hart for hitting 500 followers. This is huge blogging accomplishment! :)

No nudity? Damn! :)

No nakedness? I want nakedness.

I'm off to Jo's blog to see if her husband is making a film about nakedness.

Ocean Girl said...

Congratulations all around. This community thrives and I enjoy being a tiny wee bit part of it.

Old Kitty said...

But there may be NUDITY right?!!? Right?!?!?!

:-) Take care

Huntress said...

Hey, we're all family here. What's a little nakedness?

Anyone connected with Iron Man 2 is my hero. Color me impressed.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Suzy.

Nebular, 99.9% of the male population should never be seen naked...

Moody, doubtful, but I know someone who might do that!

Ellie, you really don't, trust me.

And Ocean Girl, I tried several times to comment on your site this weekend but couldn't.

Kitty, maybe... NOT!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Congrats all round. loved the post nakedness or none,
Yvonne.

Will check out those sites. (It would seem that "naked" is one of the more powerful words to use in the blogosphere (and everywhere). Perhaps I should put some version of "naked", "nudity", or "bare" in every post title...

Leovi said...

Preview magnificent interesting and fun.

GigglesandGuns said...

No Nakedness?! What happened to your free spirit?
*sigh*

Cruella Collett said...

Alex - I think you just created a public demand of nakedness ;) Just sayin'!

And yay for such bloggishly delightful news all around!

Talli Roland said...

No nakedness; how disappointing.

You've got three great ladies there!

(Those two comments are completely unrelated...)

baygirl32 said...

think we need nakedness!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

li, it does draw in the readers and commentors!

Mary, my free spirit is shy.

Talli, but they are both cool!

Karen Walker said...

Actually, Alex, you don't even have a profile photo, do you? Will we ever get to see what you look like?

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Karen, I had a couple posted when my book came out...

Nate, you're right!

Monti, there used to be, but not naked of course.

If this naked world domination includes not having to wear shoes, then I am in. Where do I vote? Congrats to Hart and I am sure those are awesome big time movies, but this is the first time I have heard of them so I will take your word that they are mega awesome. Yes I live under a rock and don't go out much.

Ricky said...

See what happens when you mention nakedness....

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Enid, that's why I'm just featuring a few special ones.

Dafeenah, we need to go see some movies.

Good luck to Jo's husband. I wish I knew someone in the film industry. After watching Game of Thrones last night I keeping thinking, 'Why not my book?' LOL

The Words Crafter said...

LOL!!! You crack me up :P

Fantastic news all the way around. Will spread the word.....

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Yard Bird!

Holly, SHE has nakedness!

Thanks, Jo - but I just did it because that's so cool.

Nancy, I just wondered, because you mentioned tigers...

Susan, I think the same thing sometimes.

Words, I am here for your amusement!

Chris Phillips said...

You are mean to tease us like that.

Mary Aalgaard said...

Funny post that ended up being about nakedness. I was Hart's 500th follower! This challenge has been amazing!

Okay, in the most convoluted way, I'm now just 3 degrees away from my IRON MAN! Thank you, thank you, thank you... 8-) Can't wait for the challenge to be done and I can visit all these folks. (Tax month is a terrible time for a challenge, by the way!)
