Heres the link and by the way it’s new….. http://www.morganvillevampirestexas.blogspot.com … …hope you join and enjoy!!

  8. That’s quite a lot of challenges! I’m doing 4 myself this year.

    I had a quick question for you since you are on WordPress.com like me…how did you get the little meters under your challenge pics in the sidebar? I have the pics for my challenges but not the meters. Thanks for your help!


    • Yeah, I kind of went overboard with the challenges. I hope I can complete them.

      For the meters, I used a tutorial from The Book Vixen to help me set it up. Here is the link. It was really helpful.

      Since we are doing the same e-book challenge, I’ll send you the code I’m using for it.

  9. Hi! We were in the ghost ‘challenge’ together. There’s nothing like it in 2013 (except one with a vampire category; not for me). I found a flexible paranormal one that needs peeps! The banner on my page has the link. ~Carolyn~
