Oh, How I Miss You Blogfest

So I was thinking...
Yeah, I do that from time to time. Usually, it's dangerous, but, this time, it actually worked out.
So I was thinking, "Boy, there are some blogs that I used to really love to read, but the bloggers have disappeared. I sure do miss them." And that thought lead to another thought which lead me to talking to Alex Cavanaugh and that lead to dragging Matthew McNish into all of it, and that lead to the
It's a pretty simple idea in all actuality, and I'm surprised no one else thought of it first. Here is all the official spiel:
Oh, How I Miss You
November 16, 2012
Hosted by Alex Cavanaugh, Matthew McNish, and Andrew Leon

The bloggers we really miss...
and the ones we would really miss!

Do you have a couple of blogger buddies that aren't posting as often? Those who've pulled back and seem absent from the blogging world? Do you have blogger buddies you're grateful are still around but would miss if they vanished? Now is your chance to show your appreciation and spotlight them!

On November 16, list one to three bloggers you really miss and one to three bloggers you would miss if they stopped blogging, then go leave a comment on those blogs letting them know.

Our blogger friends are special; it's time to let them know!
The sign up list is down below all the news. Make sure you don't miss it!

Item #1: The Great Review Contest
As far as I can tell, since no actually came back and said, "Hey, I left a review," I got four new reviews during the contest. Using super secret technology to choose a winner, also called having my wife pick a random number, Rusty Webb is the winner of the free e-book! Yea, Rusty!
I'm grateful for the four new reviews I got. I can't say how much. This review thing is tough, so every little bit helps. Thank you all so much!

Item #2: Shadow Spinner
I'm about to hit my rollover on the first part of Spinner, "The Tunnel," and that means I'll get five new free days for it! Woo hoo! But before that happens, I have one FREE! day left that I want to use up. No sense in letting those things go to waste, right? So, today only, Monday, October 22, I'm making
"Part One: The Tunnel" FREE! Because that's just the kind of guy I am. Also, because part two is nearing its rollover date, also, I'm gonna throw it onto the FREE! train along with part one. That's "Part Two: The Kitchen Table" for FREE! for one day only! If you haven't picked them up yet or know someone that hasn't, make sure you drop by and do it! Don't forget to click the "like" button when you do!

And now back to the blogfest!
Sign up on the linky list below:


  1. I'm not sure I'll be able to participate yet, but I'll definitely pass this along on Wednesday! Sounds like a great idea. I'm going to start thinking who I might feature, just in case I can.

    I'm glad you got four new reviews. I haven't touched my Kindle in too long. I did post a Charter Shorts review, but have not gotten to Shadow Spinner yet. It WILL get done. It is on my to-do list.

  2. Shannon, join us!
    I already know who I am featuring, for both aspects. Guess my brain went to work as well. (Not right now of course, but at least my brain is AT work.)

  3. I promise I will leave reviews once I get the chance to read them. They're the next books on my list. I just have to finish one other book first.

  4. I've noticed a lot of bloggers I follow have disappeared. Don't think most of them will ever come back, but once in awhile someone pops up again to say hello.

  5. Sorry, I've already got two blogfests of sorts going on in November.

  6. I've noticed quite a few bloggers who just stop posting, and sometimes I'll even leave a comment asking where they are. They never reply.

    Also, my review will be up soon for the newest installment!

  7. Finally, I'm in-the-know about a blogfest, so you can bet I'll be around for this one. :)

  8. I'll definitely be there. I love all three of you guys! Wouldn't miss it for the world.

  9. I definitely signed up and congratulations on the reviews :)

  10. Shannon: Hmm... If you posted a Charter Shorts review, it's not there. I've heard that Amazon is doing a wacky thing right now and selectively removing some reviews though. Because, you know, it's already hard enough.

    Alex: I think this is a pretty easy 'fest. No long posts, really.

    M.J.: Sounds good to me!

    L.G.: Yeah, I lot of them just wear out the "newness" of it.
    And thanks for leaving the House review!

    PT: No problem.

    ABftS: Yeah, that is sometimes the case. It's too bad...
    And thanks!

    David: Yea!

    Nancy: Good to know! We wouldn't want you to miss it!

    Michael: Thanks!

  11. I'm proud to be a part of it with you two!

  12. This a a great idea - and an easy post for me in a horrible month. (thesis, thesis, thesis, trying to murder me to death) IF I remember, that is...

  13. Callie: Well, don't let it murder you to -death-! :P

  14. Great! Another blogfest I can be late for! It does sound like a good idea and I'll do my best to post on time.

  15. Eve: Even if you don't, that's okay. Welcome to the 'fest.
