July 4th

Celebrate IndependenceHAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY! This day commemorates the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, when the US declared independence from the Kingdom of Great Britain way back in 1776. We celebrate with fireworks, barbecues, parades and more. I’m ready for fun with family and friends (both 2 and 4-legged), but first a quick update…

TERRI FARLEY is just back from a research, writing and teaching trip to Hawaii, so it’s a good thing she won’t travel far to visit our virtual barn tomorrow. I hope you’ll be here for a chance to have your questions answered and participate in some role-playing fun to complete Your Assignment (Should You Choose to Accept It).

THANK YOU to all who contributed during open submissions in June. We have some amazing Loft Book Club stories up for vote in the Judge for Yourself competition, plus all the Blogfest entries and more. Special thanks and congratulations to Sweetie — having you join the Junior Blogger ranks is another reason to celebrate! July is a busy month with open submissions starting the 23rd through the 30th. We look forward to hearing from everyone then.

Whether or not you’re celebrating the 4th of July holiday, I hope you’ll take some time to declare your independence and light some virtual fireworks in celebration of the qualities that make you, well, YOU!

  1. Yay! Terri Farley is coming tomorrow. I was super busy and didn’t get the chance to do the “assignment”. Too bad. But I still have many questions for her. Thank you for the update, LeadMare!

    And… Happy Independence Day to everyone!


  2. Thanks again Lead Mare! Happy independance day everyone over there across the pond :). I had to do a sponsored walk today (4th July in England). All I could think was “There’s a riding stables next to here, why can’t we canter round?”.
    LOL, you try walking 10 miles around a park where everything looks the same :).

  3. Wow! July looks like an exciting month. I can’t wait to qusetion Terri tomorrow!

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I am pretty sure, mustangmane, that you can still do the assignment. All you have to do is write a blog after interviewing Terri starting tomorrow. I don’t think you already had to do something right LeadMare? I hope not, ’cause I was really looking forward to it!

  4. That’s right Horsecrazzz. Thanks for your help!

  5. Oh. Okay.

    I had trouble sending the “email” through the contact form. The verification code is NOT showing up. All it has is Enter and a little X with a square around it.



  6. mustangmane, thank you for letting me know about that! It should be fixed now.

  7. OK. Thanks, LeadMare!
