Celebrate the Small Things: CONTINUES

Hi Everyone!

I have good news: LEXA CAIN has kindly offered to continue to host CELEBRATE THE SMALL THINGS.

It will have a new linky/sign up list so do CHECK OUT HER BLOG and sign up anew!

I will retire the old linky to avoid confusion.

If you aren't aware of this, this is a weekly hop where we celebrate the small things in life - or whatever we fancy from the week gone by.

This week I am celebrating Lexa, kindly offering to take over!

Here's the current linky:

Celebrate the Small Things - anyone want to host?

Greetings everyone.

As you may know every Friday for the last TWO YEARS I have Celebrated the Small Things and many of you have variously joined in over that time.

I have loved doing it, I like the weekly habit of thinking of things to celebrate even when frankly, the week feels a bit rubbish or blah or whathaveyou.

Lately however I have been finding it hard to find the time to hop around everyone's posts, or be sure to join in every week and frankly it has only been kept going with the assistance of my lovely co-hosts who I thank MUCHLY: 

Diana Wilder
LG Keltner @ Writing Off the Edge
Katie @ TheCyborg Mom
CaffeMaggieato @ mscoffeehouse


So this is me saying: I am likely retiring this weekly post. If anyone would like to take over hosting it, just drop me a comment and we can email about the list of names etc. Or happy for someone simply to take it over, even if in new guise. However I can't guarantee joining in, though would love to see it continue and join in if I can.


If nobody can, perhaps we can all endeavour simply to celebrate more when we can. I am certainly going to try to Tweet my celebrations every Friday using #CTST as that feels more manageable.

In the meantime: Here's to all of you and your celebrations, thank you for joining in and reminding me there is ALWAYS something worth celebrating.


Here's the linky, for the records.....
