Leanne - I loved reading the 7 random things about you. And this weekend I'm going to take the time to follow each of the links to the bloggers you've pointed to.

Author Leanne Dyck said...

Thank you, Laurie.
I hope you do. Each blog is worthy of your time. I know you'll have a wonderful weekend.

Thanks much for the award, Leanne! BTW, it's no problem to change the name of the blog to "Leanne Dyck's Books" or whatever. Just change the header and use the same address. It will still do a lot to get your "brand" name out there.

Author Leanne Dyck said...

Thank you for the advice, Anne. And done. : )

Leanne, I thank you deeply for sharing my blog and for your nomination. Your seven things about you are most wonderful bits of sharing and such a lovely list of blogs to explore.

Now, it is still on my "to do" list to follow the example for this award. I haven't given up hope. I know it will happen - in time, it will still be the right time :)
