NETWORKER/NAKED - A to Z Challenge

It’s the third A to Z Challenge! Blog the letters of the alphabet in order every day except Sundays The participation list is HERE – start with the blog after yours and visit at least five blogs a day. Mostly, make new friends and have fun!

My theme – I have selected a word for each day and will present to you blogger buddies who fit that description, along with movies, music, etc. My theme is to give back, highlight some awesome bloggers, and have fun in the process.

NETWORKER/NAKED

Golden at The Eagle’s Aerial Perspective
No one knows how to network like Golden. She is everywhere, learning and soaking in what the blogging world has to offer. Golden is also one of the sharpest young ladies I have ever met, and it’s easy to forget she is a teenager. With her sharp mind and excellent skills with people, Golden will go very far in life!

Hart at Confessions of a Watery Tart
The Watery Tart is very sharp, but those of us who know her realize it’s all about one thing – Naked World Domination! Hart wants to do away with clothes because they are so restricting. She even writes while in the bathtub. (And I can only assume naked – she hasn’t confirmed this though.) While I’m not about to wander my own house naked, I admit certain pieces of clothing need to be banned. Now, if all this naked stuff has you nervous, let me assure you – Hart is one of the most awesome bloggers I have ever met. And in two months, her first book will be unleashed onto the world!

Kate Beckinsale
Okay, I admit when I hear the word naked I think of my wife and then Kate Beckinsale. (Yes, in that order.) She has appeared nude in many movies but has since sworn off nudity in deference to her child (I applaud that decision, and yet, it makes me sad.)

NINJA NEWS!

We’ve been working hard to clear all ad sites and non-participating blogs on the Challenge list. Hopefully you are encountering fewer of these sites.

Don’t forget May 7 is the Challenge Reflections post. On that day, we want to hear from you – what you liked, what you didn’t like, did you enjoy it, etc. A sign-up list will be available that day at the A to Z Blog and host sites. Once you’ve posted your reflections, add your post link to the sign up list.

If anyone would like to host a blogfest but you don’t have a Linky Tools subscription, let me know and I’d be glad to create a Linky List for you.

Following Golden and Hart? Part of the Naked World Domination movement? Anyone see The Cabin in the Woods this weekend? (Freaky movie, wasn’t it?) Who do you know who is a networker? (Or into being naked?) And I’m almost to 1500 followers – what should I do to celebrate?

I'm first!!!

Cassie Mae said...

Okay, now I can go on and on without fear of someone beating me to it...

I'm all for the naked movement! (oh my, that sounds very very dirty.) Anyways, I despise laundry. I totally would join a nudist colony just so I never have to do laundry again.

Plus, we have naked fridays in my house. Once the kids are in bed, clothes are off! There's also Topless Tuesdays and underwear Sundays, but those don't happen as religiously.

And I can't think of any way to celebrate 1500 followers. But make sure I'm invited to this party. :)

Lynda R Young said...

wow, almost 1500 followers. That's truly awesome!!! Best way I know how to celebrate is with chocolate ;)

And yay for Golden!!!

Kyra Lennon said...

I really like Hart Johnson's blog. It is the name of it that first attracted me, and I've never been disappointed by it! :D

Ted Cross said...

I've always followed Hart! How could I not?

Kela McClelland said...

I follow Golden, will have to go check out Hart though.

1500? Wow. I don't know what you should do to celebrate, but that's awesome. :)

I've always had an issue with clothes. When I was five our pastor was at the house and my mom had me dressed all pretty. I went into the other room for a minute and then came running through the house naked. IDK, maybe it's in the genes somewhere, my kids prefer to be naked too.

Old Kitty said...

I am so following gorgeous Golden and The NAKED One - Ms Tart! Yay!! Down with pants!

And I think that answers the question of what you should do to celebrate your fab growing army of ninjas! LOL!

:-)

Take care

Amanda Trought said...

Alex, glad you left the link for Golden, really enjoyed reading her posts...Congrates on 3 away from 1500...chocolate is a great idea I like the dark chocolate between 70-85%. I will be staying well clear of Cabin in the Woods, I am a screamer and others don't appreciate my audience participation in movies. Blessings for the week. Amanda

I do follow Hart's blog. She's awesome. I love her transparency! It's refreshing. Have a super day!!!!!

Empty Nest Insider said...

Congrats on almost 1500 followers! It is amazing that Golden is only a teenager! I'll have to find out more about the "Naked World Domination movement!" Julie

Siv Maria said...

Both Golden and Hart are amazing. I would love to see cabin in the woods but it has not come to my neck of the woods yet. 1500 followers, wow! Do what you do best Alex, a blogfest :)Now that I am finished with my involvement with Japanese culture in Larvik, I should be able to focus more on the challenge and do some serious visiting. I am glad you are cleaning up the list, thanks for all your hard work.

C.M.Brown said...

I follow Golden, but I did not know she was a teenager. She is a very bright young lady, I agree with you, that she will go very far in life.
I will have to pay a visit to Hart.
Congrats on 1500 followers! Well done.

J.C. Martin said...

Aww, no new people to follow today! But thanks for reminding me of Golden Eagle and Hart's awesomeness!

And from a girl's perspective, I think Kate Beckinsale is hot, too!

Anna Smith said...

I love being naked. I can't believe it's even against the law to wander around without clothes on - I get why, but we should all be naked as much as possible!! Gratz on your followers, you should celebrate with cake, it's the only way :)

Retro-Zombie said...

In that order, huh? I would be more naked, but there were too many complaints... in my defense I am wearing a cowboy hat. let's just stop and think about Kate....

Glynis said...

I think Kate is an attractive woman and turns heads without being naked. Congrats about the followers!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Cassie, you will be invited to the party! Topless Tuesdays, huh? Wonder how my wife would feel about that?

Kela, that's a funny story.

Amanda, you would definitely add to the movie experience.

Siv, got one in the works. And we are trying to get the list in shape.

JC - yes!

Anna, I see you are already on board with Naked World Domination.

Jeremy, let's do think about Kate! Yeah, the naked thing sounds good until I think about us guys wandering around naked.

Brinda said...

I guess your 1500 follower status calls for a naked celebration. And I like how you somehow got Kate Beckinsale in on the N letter.

Susan Fields said...

I didn't know Golden Eagle is a teenager! And I know this great networker - his name is Alex Cavanaugh! :)

Natalie Aguirre said...

Awesome that you're almost at 1500. We used a book giveaway for our 2000 follower celebration earlier this year. I've seen critiques and marketing advice used for this too.

Huntress said...

I'm doing the world a favor by avoiding the Naked World Domination.

Jack said...

New follower here, Alex! Kate Beckinsale is one of the most extraordinary women on the face of the earth! Always loved her acting ;)

The Golden Eagle said...

Wow. Thank you so much for the mention! :) It's an honor.

Congratulations on being so close to 1500! I'm sure those two followers yet to join will be there in no time.

The Angry Lurker said...

Was it any good "Cabin in the Woods"?

Hilary Melton-Butcher said...

Hi Cap'n Alex .. two to go .. they'll be there very shortly ..

Love Golden, don't know Hart and Kate - well I'll just leave that to the other 50% of the world ..

Cheers and excellent networking A - Zee .. Hilary

Jemi Fraser said...

Golden and Hart are indeed very awesome people! :)

Journaling Woman said...

I would sign up again if I thought that would be fair. :) You'll be there shortly.

Two more great bloggers mentioned.

I'm glad your wife is a secure modern woman because Kate B??? Hmm. I don't get it, but then I'm a girl. :)

Teresa

Em-Musing said...

Wow! 1500! Phew! How do you comment on all?

Laura Eno said...

Naked networking! Sounds like a great idea. :)

Jen Daiker said...

I loved your list!!!! And I loved that you mentioned your wife and Kate... brilliant!

Always rocking the blogging world, one comment and post at a time!

With love - Jen from Unedited

Matthew MacNish said...

I had no idea Golden Eagle was a teenager. That's impressive, because she's very sharp.

L.G.Smith said...

Two very impressive ladies today!

Sorry about Kate's decision... but there's always those old DVD's!

Justine Dell said...

CAKE! Cake is always an excellent way to celebrate.

And I just noticed you started a new blog just for the A to Z challenge! Wow. So two blogs in one month? SUPERMAN!!!!!!

~JD

DayDreamer said...

Have just been checking out Golden's blog, wow, amazed she's still so young with such a great one.
1500 followers - huge congratulations, but you deserve it. I won't bring Kate into ways you can celebrate... but Justine Dell's suggestions of cake should do as a good substitute.

Clarissa Draper said...

Great bloggers mentioned today.

I knew you would get Kate in somewhere in A-Z. She's a fine looking woman but I like how she made decisions because of her child.

Also, I do have a linky-list account but thanks for the offer.

Rick Daley said...

Nakedness is highly underrated.

mooderino said...

1500 people is pretty amazing. i wonder how many of them are naked right now...

Damn. And I was up at 1 am too! I should have checked your blog.
I do follow Golden and Hart!
I don't mind thinking of Kate naked either.
:)

Marta Szemik said...

I bet you'll be at 1500 before the end of the day, but have not clue how to celebrate it. Congratulations!

welcome to my world of poetry said...

Don't even think about walking around the house Naked!!!!!!!!!!

Yvonne.

Hart Johnson said...

Alex-thank you so much for the feature! And I'm blushing at the nice things people are saying--your followers ROCK!

Congrats on 1500--that's HUGE!

Bish Denham said...

WAIT! I thought I followed Golden, but I see that I don't. Must go rectify that right now. Bye.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Glynis, she is!

Brinda, you knew I'd have to mention Kate.

Thanks, Susan!

Natalie, guess I'll have to go for the book giveaway as I'm not an expert in those areas.

Jack, thanks and you rock!

Golden, you're welcome.

Lurker - yes! Check my Saturday post for my review.

Teresa, my wife is all right with my Kate obsession. Besides, she looks even better.

Em-Musing, I can't!

LG, that's true!

Justine, fortunately I'm just a contributor over there.

Moody, hopefully none of the guys...

Yvonne, I only do it in front of my wife.

Hart, you rock!

Karen Lange said...

Congrats on almost 1000 followers! Happy Monday!

Stephen Tremp said...

Just stopped by Hart's and Golden Eagle's blogs earlier. Two amazing bloggers! Cabin in the Woods is on tap for tomorrow. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

Congrats! on 1,500 ... celebrate with ice cream and cake and cake.

Susan Roebuck said...

I follow GE - she's a brilliant girl. I'm off to check on Hart. LOL Kate Beckinsale...I'll take your word for it. Wowza 1,500 followers...hail King of the Bloggers !

Mina Burrows said...

Happy Monday, Alex! I agree the Eagle is pretty amazing. I'm heading over to check out Hart now. Thx.

Susanne Drazic said...

Hi Alex! Wow, only 2 away from 1500 followers. How awesome is that?!

As far as a celebration? A blogfest? A giveaway? Maybe a book, swag, gift card, or a critique?

Have an awesome day!

Susanne
PUTTING WORDS DOWN ON PAPER

Robyn Campbell said...

I love Eagle! Followed her for awhile. And Hart too. Hmm. Nakedness definitely has its place. :-)

Congrads on 1500. You'll be at 2000 before you know it.

:-)

Roland D. Yeomans said...

Golden Eagle and Hart are both sweethearts. As for your 1500th follower celebration? How about sleeping in for yourself? Just be kind to yourself. Your friends want you to be around for a long time! Roland

Lydia Kang said...

I knew Kate was going to make it onto your list at some point but I thought it was going to be in the K's!

Liz Fichera said...

I've heard only good things about The Cabin in the Woods, which surprises and intrigues me at the same time. Though not into horror, I may have to give this one a try even though it looks like a SyFy movie.

Rusty Webb said...

I follow them both - although I haven't visited the tart in a while.

I did sneak out and see Cabin this weekend. It was like a special episode of Buffy - it was brilliant.

Jay Noel said...

I'm a big fan of Goldie!

Will check out Hart's blog as well.

And Kate is super hot!!!!

L. Diane Wolfe said...

I follow both bloggers. Hart is from my home state of Oregon.

Donna K. Weaver said...

Alex! lol

Good for Kate. Besides, the years aren't kind to us. There will come a time even for her where it's just better to cover up.

Gossip_Grl said...

I think the naked movement has already caught on, at least around here. My friends 85 y/o grandma recently walked to the grocery store wearing her birthday suit. The 1500 celebration I think should be a byob event. Throw on Black Eyed Peas Lets Get It Started and who knows maybe my friends grandma will show up j/k

M.J. Fifield said...

I do follow both Hart and Golden. They have great blogs.

I also went to see Cabin the Woods this weekend. I hadn't planned on it since I don't like horror movies but my eternal love for Joss Whedon overcame everything else.

Karen Walker said...

Congrats, Alex. Yes, I follow both those ladies. THanks for all the hard work the organizers are doing to make the challenge work. I have visited more than 400 new blogs so far and have not gotten many new followers. Any ideas what I'm doing wrong.
Karen

Nate Wilson said...

When you say no one knows how to network like Golden, I think you're forgetting yourself. First there's the Golden Ninja level, then everyone else. (Though I confess, the Watery Tart's not bad, either. Except for when she wants to be, I suppose.)

Jessica Salyer said...

Heading over to check out Hart.

Suze said...

Al, this morning I was thinking about one of your last posts for the IWSG on the 'depth' of your manuscripts and had some further thoughts to chase the ones with which I responded to that post -- think it might have been in February or March.

Will write you a proper email with those.

Patricia Stoltey said...

When you hit a milestone, Alex, you should give something away, hopefully to me. :D

Hildie McQueen said...

Nakedness, nudity, love it!! Maybe I'll start a naked blogging tradition and one day a week blog in the buff, maybe that will get my creative juices flowing. Ewww I just made myself a little sick! Ha ha ha

Nancy Thompson said...

Golden's a teenager? Why didn't I know that? I do know Hart. Gotta make sure I'm following though. KB is one of those women who are so gorgeous, even other women ogle her.
I don't even like to be alone with myself naked, though I love it when my hubby walks around barely clothed. I heard Cabin wasn't that good. What did you think?

And whatever you do to celebrate, let us know so we can raise a glass! Congrats!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Stephen, a cake with ice cream filling?

Susanne, I'll think of something!

Robyn, that's a scary thought.

Roland, promise I won't overdo it.

Lydia, surprise!

Liz, it has science fiction elements.

Rusty, it was awesome.

Jay, yes she is!

Donna, that will make me sad as well...

Gossip, I'd rather now see that...

MJ, what did you think?

Karen, bummer! No idea.

Thanks, Nate.

Suze, please do.

Patricia, that made me laugh.

Hildie, it's a scary thought!

Alison Pearce Stevens said...

I do! I follow them both! Although I've been a very bad follower of late. I'm trying to work on that ...

Amy said...

My husband is definitely with you on being sad about Kate's anti-nudity now. Great post Alex - thank you for sharing! :)

Laura said...

Hurrah for Hart and Golden - I love these two gals!
Lx

Kittie Howard said...

Congrats, Alex, on that awesome Follower achievement (and for that Blogger of Note!) I'm sure it will go much, much higher. Er, Kate leaves me cold, LOL.

Annalisa Crawford said...

Wow - 1500 followers. As I write, you're only two away. You deserve each and everyone for all the effort you put in!

~Sia McKye~ said...

I'm still just unofficial A-Z participant doing it as I can but enjoying all the entries. I've been reading bunches this month.

I wondered when Kate would make it on your blog again-great disclaimer, btw! lol!

I can say I have read both listed blogs and enjoyed them. :-)

Hope you had a grand weekend!

Sia McKye OVER COFFEE

Cherie Reich said...

I follow both Golden and Hart.

And wow! Two away from 1500 (if you don't count the Linky follow friends). Congrats!

Maurice Mitchell said...

I totally approve of Kate's decision. The likelihood of running into naked pictures of my Mom would be enough to keep me off the Internet forever.

I'm just going to have to check out Confessions of a Watery Tart! Just the title alone has me hooked :) Congrats on reaching 1500 Alex! You definitely should celebrate.

Emily R. King said...

Ha! Kate Beckinsale. Nice choice. I bet your wife is lovely. :)

Theresa Milstein said...

I am following Golden and Hart. Excellent choices!

KarenG said...

YOU my friend are a networker! I enjoy Golden's and Hart's blogs too. Right now I'm reading Hart's ARC of her new release.

Cheryl Klarich said...

Golden is Awesome!

I think Kate B. was so great in Emma! No nudity there, though...

Joshua said...

Great choices in ladies. All three of them. (Four, I suppose, if you count your wife, though I don't know her, but I'm assuming she's great.)

Jaycee DeLorenzo said...

I enjoy my PJ's too much to wanna go Naked all the time. LOL.

S. L. Hennessy said...

The Eagle's Aerial Perspective has been a great read this challenge. LOVE all the science I'm learning!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thanks, Nancy! And I reviewed Cabin in the Woods on Saturday. I really liked it!

Thanks, Kittie!

Thank you, Annalisa.

Sia, you knew she'd be in here somewhere.

Maurice, that is very true.

Emily, my wife is beautiful - even more so than Kate!

Thanks, Karen.

Joshua, she's the best.

nutschell said...

haha! got a kick out of your comment on Kate:) I do follow Golden! Now I'm going to check out Hart:)

Alexandra Heep said...

What should you do to celebrate? Well, it would have to involve something naked, of course.

Nice word selection ... I can see the spam bots crawling all over that word!

Congrats on amassing an awesome Ninja army of almost 1,500.

Tara Tyler said...

you're so funny w/your kate obsession =)

Pk Hrezo said...

LOL to Cassie! I bet she was waiting all morning for that! Yep, Hart and Golden are awesome!

Leigh Covington said...

LOL! Can't help but laugh at your comments about Kate Beckinsale. That's awesome. She is gorgeous, but I don't really think about her naked. :)

cleemckenzie said...

Haven't seen Cabin in the Woods. Will let you know what I think after I do.

I've got a lot to say about the A to Z, so I'm really happy that you posted about the May 7 Reflections post.

I'm still limping along with a very creaky lap top. My desk top went belly up on the fourth day of the challenge, so I haven't been able to keep up as much as I had planned. Hope there's a next time.

Erin M. Hartshorn said...

I do follow Golden. Will have to check out Hart.

Less laundry would be a good thing.

Erin

Christine Rains said...

Golden is fantastic. I forget all the time she's a teenager. You're definitely a networker, and so is Cherie Reich. She taught me how to work it! Networking, I mean. Not being naked.

Leovi said...

Pretty Kate Beckinsale, your wife is going to get jealous.

D.G. Hudson said...

Already following Golden Eagle, and yes she is sharp, regardless of age in years.

I don't join any irrational movements.

Julie said...

Definitely two great blogs today. I'm sorry Kate Beckinsale let you down! :)

As a Writer... said...

Golden sounds great and Hart sounds intriguing - I'm going to check them out!

Congrats on followers!

Morgan said...

Everything you touch turns to gold, my friend. The A-Z challenge has been an astounding success and SO stoked for your 1500 followers. Thing is, we're not just followers. You make us feel like friends, people, not just a number. And that is why you are so loved. :D

Julie Dao said...

I follow Golden, but not Hart! Thanks for introducing me to so many great fellow bloggers :)

Jennifer Lane said...

I think I'll keep my clothes on while writing but it's an interesting idea to write in the bathtub. Always great to see teenagers blogging. I wonder how that would've altered my life path if I'd been exposed to blogging as a teenager. We were just starting to use email when I was in college!

Michael Offutt, Tebow Cult Initiate said...

Kate Beckinsale will be getting old soon anyway. I don't see what you straight men get from her anyway. I think you should give away a copy of CassaFire to celebrate the 1500 mark.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Thank you Alexandra, but it certainly won't be me naked!

Tara, I'm here for your amusement!

Leigh, if you did that would be odd.

CLee, bummer!!!

Christine, that made me laugh!

Leovi, my wife knows she is prettier than Kate.

Julie, I'll just have to live with it...

Morgan, thank you! You guys ARE my friends.

Jennifer, we didn't even have computers in our school until I was in high school!

Michael, I think you just answered your own question. Besides, she's still ten years younger than me. Anything under thirty is a child.

Nicki Elson said...

Um, I hope you'll still continue to visit me after I say this, but I honestly have no idea who Kate Beckinsdale is. I was thinking she was that soccer player's wife, but that'd be Beckham, so...

Sarah Ahiers said...

This:

I applaud that decision, and yet, it makes me sad

made me LOL!!

Andrew Leon said...

For some reason, my computer doesn't like Hart's blog. It's always accusing it of viruses and shuts it down and all kinds of things. :(

M Pax said...

I love both Eagle and Hart. They're great pillars of the blogosphere.

Tonja said...

1500 followers???! I'm excited I got to 150!

Helena said...

The Naked Hart is so worthy of praise! And I love how you go for an action lady like Kate B.

Carrie Butler said...

Great choices, Alex! I'm on the fence about seeing The Cabin in the Woods. On one hand, horror movies freak me out. On the other hand... well, Joss Whedon. Enough said. :)

Johanna Garth said...

Good to hear Kate comes after your wife! A distant second, I'm sure!!

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Nicki! She's the star of the Underworld movies. You are getting an email young lady...

Sarah, I am here for your amusement!

Andrew, bummer.

Carrie, it's a bit more of a black comedy with horror...

Johanna, a very distant second!

Lady Gwen said...

Did the naked thing in my youth, but now? Not so much, LOL. I will have to check out her site, though. And Golden is an incredible young lady - I've met several online - Jessica McKendry is another one. You'd never know how young they are:)

Medeia Sharif said...

Golden and Hart are fantastic bloggers. Great N post for networking and nakedness.

klahanie said...

Hi Alex,
In hopes of not being repetitive, I shall touch upon one part of your article.
You are getting close to the 1500 'follower' mark. Once again, I really have a problem with the word 'follower' and wish that we could find an alternative word. In your case, it's most obvious to me, that those who have linked into your site seem to have linked into for genuine reasons. Not the old follow you, follow me, scenario that I believe happens a fair amount and is not a true reflection of a site's popularity. So, I personally believe you should celebrate the fact you have 1500 sincere interaction bloggers who have linked into your site. I consider that most encouraging and heartening for you.
All the best, my friend and happy writing.
Gary

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Wow, you are only 2 away, Alex! By the time I post, you may be there. Let's get this party started...Bring back some old posts, maybe?

Sonia Lal said...

Thanks for the links!

Sonia Lal, A to Z challenge

michelle said...

Golden Eagle is AMAZING! She has a sense of wisdom, beyond her tender years...
Wow - 1500 is phenomenal!! What WOULD you like to do ?? Anything in mind? Different kind of blogfest? Maybe one where the bloggers could work in pairs or threes? Link up somehow? Just a vague idea...

DeniseCovey_L_Aussie said...

That is very sweet of you to offer to do Linky Lists for peeps. There are still free ones out there. I use inlinz for RomanticFridayWriters and it is awesome.

Denise

Nick Wilford said...

Two away! Ready to party??

I bow down to anyone with such an awesome knowledge of science as Golden, because I'm a dunce in that department! She's probably gathered that from my comments...

Copyboy said...

You are a linky love fest my friend. BTW...good save on the KB one. haha

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Gwen, it just amazes me.

Gary, thank you! I wish I could connect every day with every single follower, because they are far more - they are friends.

Robyn, which ones???

Michelle - I don't know!!!!!!!!!!!!

Nick, I'm sure she's gathered that from my comments as well.

Chuck said...

I love Kate in all forms...especially in Underworld. And I went to Golden's site...I have determined she is entirely too smart for me. Congrats on getting close to 1500! To celebrate...CassaStar movie.

Miranda Hardy said...

You just wanted to say "naked" in a post. Admit it! lol

Thanks for visiting every day. I don't know how you do it. You're running circles around me and I used to think I was great at commenting. lol

Susan Gourley/Kelley said...

Wow, 1500! How will you ever visit everyone?
Didn't see that movie. It looks to scary for me. I swore off movies that frighten me at the same time I became a mother.

Tracy Jo said...

I wasn't following Golden...so thank you! I DID see Cabin in the Woods. It was freaky and a cool spin. T and I got the giggles when SW showed up.
:-) 1500 - Nice! How about a book giveaway? Or mug? I wanted one of those! I am almost to 200 and thinking of giving away one of my pictures from the A to Z challenge.

Nicole said...

So many great new blogs to discover! Thanks for your lists. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Chuck, Kate is awesome. And that would be an amazing way to celebrate.

Miranda, it just worked out that N was naked. And I just try my hardest for my friends.

Susan - I won't!

Tracy, glad you liked the movie. I'll have to check on the mug...

Stephanie Thornton said...

Thanks for the great links!

And yay for ninjas on a Monday! (I could use some of them at work).

LynNerdKelley said...

I follow Golden and she's an amazing person. Wise beyond her years and bound for great success, I'm positive. I don't follow Hart. Thanks for telling us about her. I love the title of her blog.

You're a pretty awesome networker yourself, Alex. That's pretty nice of you to offer to do a Linky list for anyone who doesn't know how if they want to host a blogfest. Now, that's what I call networking and going above and beyond. Very kewl!

Rachna Chhabria said...

I follow Golden, I did not know that she was in her teens. Will have to check out Hart.

Congrats , you are super close to 1500. I agree with Lynda, celebrate with chocolates.

Michael Pierce said...

Two to go! Sounds like a lot of nakedness going on, but I can't complain. haha. Fun post!

Andy David said...

Hell.
It's my first time participating in the challenge & also my first time here. Fascinating post. I'll try to visit some of the other links too. Thanks for sharing.

Ciara said...

I adore Hart and The Golden Eagle. They both are such amazing people. I still can't believe The Golden Eagle is a teenager. Wow. Okay, sorry I'm late to the party. My family needed me yesterday after being gone for 6 days to the RT convention. :)

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Stephanie, I am for hire!

Lynn, thank you! Really appreciate that.

Welcome, Andy. Hope you're having a good time.

Ciara, no problem!
