Celebrating My Latest Blog Follower


Esther Newton is a freelance writer, copywriter and writing tutor for The Writers Bureau. I found her wonderful blog during the AtoZ Blog Challenge in April and started following her.  Here is the link to check it out for yourself. I highly recommend that you take the time. It turns out Ms. Newton is my latest follower. I want to celebrate that by featuring her in my latest post.

Here is what a side bar on her blog mentions:

Guidance And Advice For Writers
• Are you struggling with your short story? • Has your synopsis sizzled out half-way? • Not sure which markets to target? Perhaps you’d just like someone to check your script through. If any of this applies to you, then take a look at my ‘Guidance And Advice For Writers’ page to see how I can help.

It’s an amazing place out there in the blogging world. People like Ms. Newton who are sharing their expertise, taking time to get to know me through my work. Of course, there are blogs you wouldn’t bother with, but it is pretty great that strangers find each other because they share a passion like mine of writing, reading, gardening and all manner of other things.

I would love to give Esther the gift of my e-book, Greening of a Heart set in Burford in the Cotswolds to say thank you for being my latest follower. Ten more and I may feel like celebrating again with the gift of Hannah Winchester and her world for someone else. Thanks to my followers who check in on me and leave comments. I admire your efforts to present an interesting, well presented, uncluttered blog while visiting the likes of me.

    Hi – In Esther’s ‘About Me’, It’s not the first time I’ve ever read where the loss of a job leads to a better opportunity, but it never fails to impress me. 🙂 Cool website! Thanks. 🙂

    Lovely post and I will look her up! Does your book club need an author – hint!

    • Thanks, Noelle. I think the books have been selected for the year, but I will check. Let local folks know you are available on your blog. I’ve done five groups I think and loved the experience.

  3. A most excellent post and very inspiring. Thank you, Stepheny.

    Thanks for putting a spotlight on Esther Newton. I didn’t get the chance to visit her blog during the challenge so I’ve subscribed to her blog now after looking through it.. I found some very helpful tips.


    • Happy to have sent on to you something you could use. I know from our brief blogging friendship (since April) that you are serious about your blog and your work. I’m happy too for Esther’s tips. The more the merrier, right? Cheers.

  5. Thank you so much for this, Stepheny. It’s so good of you. Thank you 🙂

    • You’re welcome. One reader said she was now following. I would like to put the novel on your Kindle (?) as a gift if you would like me to. You will not hurt my feelings if not. It just came to me that I could celebrate in that fashion. Let me know info to order the book for you if you would like. Cheers and thanks for following me.
