Three is a Magic Number

Eek. Now I have school house rocks stuck in my head.

But on to important things, there are three of them that I should like to pass on to you.

First, I have been accepted into the society of The Secret Archives of the Alliterati! Starting tommorrow I will be blogging there on Thursdays along with L.T. Host on Monddays, Keriann Greaney Martin on Tuesdays, Matthew Delman on Wendsdays, and K. Marie Cridle on Fridays. I am so excited to be in such good company! it is going to be so much fun! Taliesin will still be here though to house my book reviews, character interviews, dabblings in poetry and any other contemplations more vaguely connected to writing.

Second, L.G. Smith over at Bards and Prphets has granted me the honor of the Stylish Blogger Award. Thank you L.G!

Here are the rules:

1. Thank the giver and link back to the blogger who gave it to you.
2. Reveal your top 5 picks and let them know by leaving a comment on their blog.
3. Copy and paste the award on your blog.
4. Have faith that your followers will spread the love to other bloggers.
5. And most of all - have bloggity-blog fun!

And in addition I am meant to reveal seven things about myself. I am going to cheat and call my first anouncement (about the Allitarti. You remember that one don't you?) number one and my last anouncement (still to come) as my seventh. That leaves five in between.


I wear hats. A lot. I'm sort of an addict.

I sometimes (now for example) come into Starbucks and use their wifi without ordering a drink but consider myself justified by remembering how many times I come in to use or not use their wifi and DO order a drink

I cut my hair for the first time in my life last month (apart from trimming or layering) and LOVE it.

I can't dra unless they are stick figures and even then the lines aren't very straight.

At one point I declared myself a music major and took a year of music theory . . . before realiziing I didn't actually play an instrument

And who to pass this deluctable award on to . . .

1) Anita Grace Howard at A Still and Quiet Madness because she is always so generous in passing on awards and I'm stillin love with her blog name

2)Yvonne Ozbourne at The Organic Wirter for her different persectives on writing and other pieces of life

3)Adam Heine at Author's Echo because he lives half way aorund the world and still blogs for us

4)Lydia Kang and The Word is My Oyster for her fantastig drawings at the beginning of her posts and her insightful plot related medical advise.

5)Stephanie Thornton because she makes me love ancient history as much as she does

You seserve it. I love reading your posts!

And now for my final piece of all important information. I have at last joined the collective and am on twitter. Sntill o idea what I'm doing at this point but follow me at taryn_tyler so I can find you!

How's that for a long and undirected post? have a good week friends and happy writing!
