I’m glad to be with you, Samwise Gamgee, my blog readers, here at the end of all things.

Thanks so much for joining me, everyone!! It’s been a fun month here on the blog! 🙂 (For me at least; dunno about you folks. ;)) I hope you enjoyed getting so many posts! (And if not, well, it’s over now and I’ll be going back to a more moderate schedule again, so either way you should be happy! XD)

I believe that I’m all caught up on my tags now… (Except for a couple of writerly ones I’m saving for November…) WHEW. That was a LOT but also fun. XD I even caught up on my bookish tags over on my book blog, The Page Dreamer!

I wish I could give something to EVERYONE who entered… but I tried to have a lot of prizes so there would at least be more than one winner. 😉

Thanks so much for entering and commenting, everyone!!! You are all absolutely awesome and make my day. ❤ Thank you for celebrating with me!

This event was to celebrate the blogging anniversary of this writing blog The Road of a Writer, its past, present, hopeful future, and of course The Lord of the Rings — but ALSO to celebrate how awesome all my readers are (that’s you!) so THANKS SO MUCH! YOU ARE THE BEST! ^_^

Official announcer voice:

“This concludes the celebration of the 3rd Blogoversary of The Road of a Writer. Thank you for participating. Please file out of the auditorium in an orderly line and do not trample small aardvarks in the aisles. Thank you.” *sound of official announcer person bowing*

(Don’t even ask how you can hear a bow. It totally works. Hush.)

If anyone needs me, I’ll just be over here in the corner in denial that tomorrow is October. WHAT. EVEN. Ahem. (Also, sorry I’m so behind on comments! I was gone for a week… So I will work on replying to those soon!!) Have a lovely weekend, everyone, and I will see you whenever I get together an ishness post about my crazy September! Love you all, and thanks again! ❤

*throws celebratory confetti and hands out cupcakes to everyone*

  10. What about a bread-baking Viking?
    (As I found out on Saturday, when going on twisty roads, it makes all the turns easier if you say “And now the. . . spinning,” as you go around and around.
