Help Give by Blogging – Nathan Bransford’s challenge

I know I don’t post on Wednesdays but literary agent Nathan Bransford has come up with a challenge. Comment on his blog and he’ll give $1.00 per post to Heifer International. So I joined his challenge – in my own way. If I have 35 comments on this post, I will donate enough for a beehive. (My husband’s a beekeeper) All you have to do is comment. Similar to Nathan’s blog, all you have to do is give your first name, a holiday wish, and, if you like, a link to your blog. Thanks and Happy Holidays!

    This is a great step. Thanks for doing this.

  11. My holiday wish is for a local family that recently lost their home in a fire. You’re all invited to visit my blog–it’s my new year’s resolution so don’t come by until after Jan.1! I’m at

  12. I’m in! Is there a deadline? (I know writers LOVE deadlines!) I’ll pass the word along. Happy holidays.

  13. Hi Robin!

    I’m Mags. My wish is that you have a wonderful holiday season and a 2010 full of awesomeness! (Also, add beekeeper to the list of jobs I’m glad someone else does! I do love honey… and flowers!)


  14. Hello, Robin,
    Lovely to visit your online home. Thanks for this!
    My holiday wish is for the unseen to become seen.

  15. Robin, that’s great!

    I’m Joel Friedlander from San Rafael, California.
    I blog at

  16. Holiday wish: To finish the first five pages of my book today!

    (The link is in my name!)

  17. For the beehive!…. I hope you reach your goal, Mom! :)

  18. A wish for safety to all those who are travelling.

  19. Your husband is a beekeeper? That is too cool. I have fantasies about being a beekeeper (perhaps from watching Fried Green Tomatoes too many times?) but have never really investigated it. Earlier today I actually saw this post ( about a beekeeper in the Seattle area today and wished I knew of something similar in the Denver area. Perhaps that will be my wish for 2010: that someone in the Denver Metro area takes the leap into urban/CSA-style beekeeping!

    I’m adding to the donation pool myself, so feel free to stop by and hold me accountable, too. Thanks!

  20. Simply done! Happy, happy holidays! I wish everyone safe, safe travel. (Oh . . . my husband is a beekeeper too!)
