WordCandy Sweet Bloggers December Roundup

wordcandy.me sweet bloggers

I live in the wild, wild west. Sometimes, associates on one of our fair coasts will ask me if we have indoor plumbing. And paved roads. And covered wagons.

To prove we are every bit as sophisticated as our urban friends, I saddled up the horse and threw on leather chaps, grabbing a length of red licorice rope to round up this month’s WordCandy Sweet Bloggers. (I must tell the truth. I don’t have a horse. But I do have a red snowblower parked smack in the middle of my still grass-covered back yard, and it worked just as well.)

At the old fashioned pie social just yesterday in the town square, I overheard the following from our sweet WordCandy users:

I have enjoyed the addition of new photos as well as the plethora of new quotes available. Every time I visit, there is something new which definitely makes me want to come back for more. (Holly Grantham)

I enjoy the quickness of sending a little treat to someone! (Karin Fendick)

I had a blast completing this “assignment” to send candies out to five people. (Sheila Lagrand)

I like the little clips of creativity. (Heather Truett)

I adore it and all its sweetness. (Leah Jamielynn)

I’m loving the new quotes and photos! (Erica Hale)

We filled up our saddle bags with your goodies on our 100 Sweet Bloggers Pinterest board. And we’re delighted to feature these tasty sweets from your blog posts last week. We loved the way you used a WordCandy to prompt poetry, a short blog post, or just stand alone in all its candy cane sweetness, especially with all the new holiday quotes and images.

    What did I do before Wordcandy.me and Tweetspeak, what a fun group of people. I am pinching myself at the sweet discovery. You all sweeten my world and I am sending Wordcandy for birthday gifts now. Wonderful. Loving the Christmas wordcandies. What are we calling them….. wordcandies? Please help this word weaver use the right wording.

    Lyla… Ha :)

    What kind of pie did you eat at the social? 😉

    Elizabeth, as long as you don’t pinch us, we’re good. 😉 So glad to have you here for the fun. Sure, wordcandies is a fine confectioners term.
