When I launched Beyond the Gray over two years ago, I never dreamed that it would grow to have such a loyal, enthusiastic following. I never imagined all the friends I’d make or all the stories we would share. Most of all, I never realized how much my life would be changed in the process. When I launched Beyond the Gray, I had no expectations at all. I simply wrote from my heart and hoped that good things would follow.

Well, good things have followed. One of my 2011 goals was to hit 50,000 views by the end of the year. We surpassed that months ago. So, to thank you for your support and celebrate this milestone, I decided that it’s time for us to move out of our free, WordPress starter blog and move to a custom home. In the words of the Jeffersons, “we’re movin’ on up!”

So, tomorrow when you stop by, don’t be surprised if you find yourself surrounded by a different design and brighter colors. You’ve helped me move beyond my gray and I look forward to continue helping you move beyond yours.

See you tomorrow!

A couple weeks ago I mentioned that I’ve been selected as a finalist in the Write It Sideways Blogging Contest. Today, I’m pleased to announce that my article, Use Your 5 Senses to Gauge Your Book’s Potential, is making its debut on Write It Sideways!

This is thrilling for a number of reasons:

  1. I can cross off one of my 2011 Goals (#8. Publish my non-fiction work in new places).
  2. My work is in good company alongside articles from seven other extremely talented, hard-working writers.
  3. It’s nice to have someone other than my husband (who has my work forced upon him on a daily basis) acknowledge that my writing isn’t half bad.

If you have a chance, I hope you’ll swing by Write It Sideways and check out all the finalists’ entries. You’ll have the chance to vote for your favorite on May 8th!

Today, I have some exciting news to share: I’ve been selected as a finalist in the Write It Sideways Blogging Contest!

This recognition is not only a huge honor, it’s a reassurance that there is a place for my writing in this world and that this dream of mine is not impossible. Trust me, we writers need these reminders from time to time.

Stay tuned…my entry will be posted on Write It Sideways in the coming weeks and the grand prize winner will be picked by all you readers!
