3 Ups to Yolanda!

The 3 Up! Blog Hop was dreamed into reality by randi lee over at The Emotional Process of Writing a Novel.  The idea is to visit someone's blog for a bit and give the a list of 3 positive things about their blog and/or themselves.

I've been assigned to Yolanda Renee at Defending the Pen for this hop.  I've known Yolanda for a little while now (at least inside the blogosphere), and I'm excited to be able to tell her some positive things, because with her, there is an abundance of positives to share!

1. Yolanda is amazing with her comments.  She spreads the joy of blogging by reading with care and consideration, which is made apparent by what she has to say.  Her comments are the kind that can brighten your day.

2. Yolanda's blog is extremely interactive.  She participates in lots of blogfests, and her posts for these events are carefully written and insightful.  You can tell she isn't only jumping in for the extra blog traffic.  She wants to genuinely contribute something, and this is an invaluable quality in the blogging community.  She also does interviews, which help us get to know others we might not have met otherwise.

3. She blogs frequently, but the quality of her posts never seems to suffer.  She provides quality and quantity, which is not an easy thing to achieve as a blogger. In this regard, she serves as an inspiration to those that know her.

If you've never met Yolanda in your blogging travels, I recommend that you stop by and pay her a visit.  You'll be glad you did!


  1. L G, You just made my day. That was so generous, and kind of funny. I just read the Astrology report for the week, comes via email, how can you not -- anyway. It said, on the 27th expect the unexpected, and wow -- for the first time in my life -- it was right! :)

    Thank you for that, it means a lot and I love the idea of this blog hop. Everyone needs to hear the positive and thank you so much for the appreciation! Blogging isn't easy, and while my blogs have recently been full, my comments are off the mark. I do like to spend time reading and commenting but with two books to edit - time is such a luxury. But reading your words makes the effort so much more fun and makes me so much more determined! Thank you!
    Happy Day!

  2. First off, thank you SO very much in participating in this! I'm so happy that you were able to make Yolanda's day :D That's what this hop is all about, and you participated perfectly. Also, love your Ups. You pegged Yolanda beautifully~ R
