Many thanks to my recent Top Commenters!

The nicest thing about blogging is engaging with reader comments. Today I want to thank my recent Top Commenters who always visit and stop to chat. They are terrific supporters of the blogging community and I consider them great blogging friends.  I hope you will visit their blogs too!


Fiction Favorites with John Howell – Thriller author John Howell started his blog as a forum for the free exchange of information and ideas. John follows a daily schedule of entertaining themed posts. From views of his neighborhood, top things not to do, and posts about the family dogs to John’s own “Johnku,” personal thoughts and original fiction, there is always something interesting going on at Fiction Favorites.


Jill Weatherholt – Jill is the author of inspirational romance novels and has just finished her fourth, A Home for Her Daughter, in stores August 25. Jill is a great supporter of authors and bloggers and a great blogging and Twitter friend. One of my favorite things about Jill’s blog is her “Would You Rather” feature – great questions that make you think!


The Chatter Blog – Author Colleen Faherty Brown is also a talented artist and deep thinker. She posts original sketches with philosophical thoughts, sometimes light, sometimes heavy and always thought-provoking. I especially like when she adds her drawings to the photographs she takes.


Darlene Foster’s Blog – Darlene is the author of children’s stories, a retired employment counsellor, and ESL tutor, a wife, mother and grandmother. She created her blog for writers, readers, travelers, dreamers and friends, old and new. She believes everyone has a right to dream and everyone has the capability to make their dreams come true.


Retirement Reflections – Prior to retirement, Donna lived and worked in Beijing China for fourteen years. Leaving international life behind, she and her husband retired to Vancouver Island in June 2015. She started her blog to document both this transition and their new adventures. Her hiking photos and descriptions make me want to get outside and experience the same!


Robbie’s Inspiration – Robbie Cheadle is the author of children’s picture, middle grade and young adult books. She also writes adult and young adult horror and supernatural writing under the name Roberta Eaton Cheadle. Robbie is an expert baker and fondant creator and she shares her artistry on her blog. These creations also appear in her Sir Chocolate children’s books. Robbie is a wonderful supporter of bloggers near and far.


Thanks for visiting – come back soon!

  1. The connections and blogging friends we make are definitely one of the best parts of blogging, Barbara! I see a few friends we have in common on your list. Grateful! 🙂

  2. Hi, Barbara – It is a real honour to be mentioned on your blog and included on this list with writers I greatly admire. When I first pressed “publish” on my initial post, I never understood the deep, meaningful connections that I would make with others. I am incredibly grateful! BTW – I just may borrow this “Top Commenter” idea!

    1. Hi Donna – I know exactly how you feel – I didn’t understand the blogging dynamic when I started blogging. Commenters are what keep the blogging world humming. Thanks for the visit! 😀

  3. That’s so sweet of you to give a shout-out to your blog buddies. What a nice idea. And I’d never heard of most of these bloggers! But Chatter Master is one of my favorite people whom I would so love to meet in person some day.

  4. Great idea, Barbara, and we have some blogging friends in common. I’ll check out the other sites, as well. Our connections through this online community become so special, another family, in fact, and I’m grateful for our connection, too. 💗

  5. This is a great idea, thanking top commenters regularly. (I didn’t make the cut this time around, huh?)
    You’ve given me inspiration for a future post. I have done it in the past but it’s long overdue. 🙂

  6. Awww. That’s such a sweet thing to do!!! All wonderful shout-outs, Barb. And you exemplify why this community is so wonderful. I’ll have to make a note to do the same this fall (once I get my darn trilogy out and take a nice long nap). Take care. 😀

  7. I really like your beautiful blog. A pleasure to come stroll on your pages. A great discovery and a very interesting blog. I will come back to visit you. Do not hesitate to visit my universe. See you soon.

Tell me what you're thinking!
