Flying before you know it

First, an adorable cheetah video. He'll be flying before you know it!

Second, a fun fact. Some cheetahs in captivity get lonely (poor things), so they may be raised alongside a litter of puppies. Dog and Cat grow up together as the bestest of best friends. Yes, I'm serious. Thank you, San Diego Zoo!

Third, the dreaded housekeeping. I understand if you stop reading. The baby cheetah and cat/dog BFF's were my reel-you-in and grand-finale. But if you're still with me, there are a ton of truly sing-song awwwwesommmme things happening right now.

The Now-Starring Blogfest - Cast the MG's from your WIP. You know you have someone in mind to play your hero and definitely your villain.

Crits for Water - A spectacular fundraiser for WOW generosity, let me tell you. Check it out, and be a part of it!

Harry Potter Blogfest - Are words really necessary? Go. Do. Fun.

Lisa DesRochers is in Contest Mode - She's giving away everything (okay, so not everything), but a lot!

A to Z blogfest - It starts in April, and I'm setting a goal to visit 3-5 blogs each day. That won't get me through them all (over 500 participants, yowza!), but it's a start.

There are a ton of other contests, giveaways, and blogfests happening or about to happen, but these are the ones that come to mind. Also, I crossed off something on the ole' Bucket List, and it only shows up so-so in pics. If you look close enough in this ultra windy image, you'll see a bit of red. Thanks for the dare, Teralyn! :)

Yes, I am looking forward to the A to Z challenge as well. Trying to pick a few blogs to visit regularly because 500 or more is huge.

Whatever you do, NEVER never watch the episode of Nature about the cheetah brothers. You'll see how capable they are of forming such strong bonds . . . end then you'll end up weeping piteously at the end.

Oh, that is so cool! I loved hearing about the cheetahs and dogs. And it's totally counter-intuitive; I would have thought they would use cats instead. How sweet that they don't get lonely, too.

Yay for crossing off bucket list items and thanks for the links!
