39 Weeks: 39 Blogs Everyone Should Follow In 2017 – Week 3: Debby Gies – D. G. Kaye Writer – Hugh’s Views & News



We as bloggers all strive to write posts to engage readers whether to entertain or inform.


When I began blogging, like many of us, I wasn’t sure just which direction to go with my blog, but within the first year I settled into my own blog and found that besides sharing snippets about my books and interesting articles and tips I learned through the self-publishing process, that I was most comfortable just being myself.

I speak and interact on my blog and other’s just as I do in my books. If I come across injustice, I’m going to speak about it. If something sucks, I’m going to share about it. But mostly I love to share things that include resolution and helpful links, apps, and articles that could be of interest to others. I also learned to share a lot more about my personal self because after all, all my books are taken from my own life experiences. There’s nothing left to hide when one bares all in their books for the world to see.

I write about all these different things because I enjoy doing so. I’ve never been one to write for ratings. In fact, I honestly couldn’t even say how many are following me, or how many views my blog has had, that’s the truth. And with this said, I find it truly humbling that my blog was chosen as one of Hugh Roberts39 Blogs to Follow. My little space here in a sea of beautiful blogs in the cyberworld was singled out by Hugh, and that made me feel so elated that my posts are recognized and are adding value to many of my readers.

So today I thank all of you for your followings, comments and interest. And I’d especially like to thank Hugh for choosing my blog to be featured on his popular blog. Please read Hugh’s post below.

Today, the 3rd of the 39 blogs I’ll be recommending to you over the course of 2017, is the blog of somebody who has offered and given me so much support and encouragement that if it were chocolate, I’d have enough of the sweet stuff to feed the whole world for over one-hundred years (I may keep a few bars of milk chocolate for myself, though).

D. G. Kaye is a published Canadian author, writer and blogger, known to many as Debby Gies. Debby’s blog is one of the most informative blogs I have read. Check out her ‘about me’ page by clicking here.

Debby isn’t afraid when it comes to sharing, writing and publishing blogging tipsself-publishing tips, social media tips, and even tips on subjects such as cleaning up your Amazon linksand how to autograph your books from across the miles. She’s full of ideas, as her blog posts show, and attracts many readers from all over the world.

The author of five books (and currently in the process of writing two more), Debby always has time for her readers. She reads and answers comments left on her blog posts with lightning speed; something which she has every right in priding herself on. She’s also a blogger who visits, reads and comments on other people’s blog posts; so expect to see a lot of her around the blogging world. Click here to check out Debby’s Amazon author page and details of all her current books.

A keen promoter of other authors’ works, Debby also runs a guest post feature, ‘Who has a new book?’, where authors can showcase their latest book and answer some of her questions. I had the pleasure of having a post published on Debby’s blog in December. Please Continue Reading .  .

  1. What a lovely post, Deb. Your open heart shines through like a beacon of light. It’s no wonder Hugh chose your blog as one of his features. You are a loving soul who has touched many hearts in our blogging community with your generosity. A huge thank you to Hugh for his series acknowledging so many of the outstanding bloggers with whom we share so much ?


    1. Tina, thanks for always being such a beacon of light yourself. I am blessed to have made such wonderful friends with so many through our community. And it makes me feel so good that others are gaining something from the posts I share. Thank you my special friend. ❤


  2. Hi Debby. It was a privilege to feature both you and your blog on my 39 Blogs to follow feature. I said it all in the post, but because you share so much of what you have learned from blogging, writing, publishing books, social media, and just being yourself, it was no contest in featuring you. Your time not only spent writing the articles on your blog, but also the time you spend on visiting other people’s blogs and becoming a big part of their blogging community is something I wanted to highlight to everyone.

    From the title of my all time favourite comedy series, The Golden Girls, “thank you for being a friend.” ❤️


    1. Lol Hugh, thank you once again. That was one of my favorite comedies too – those wisecrackin’ ladies.
      As I said before, I’m truly humbled and honored to be featured as one of your choices, and on your blog. ❤


  3. Congrats! Blogging has so many levels of appeals. It took me a few years to find my stride. From posting critical book reviews, came my first editing inquiries. I rather like doing informative posts, but also can’t wait for the day when I start a bona fide author blog. It’s just always great to connect with so many different people online.


    1. Thanks so much Jeri. So true, it can be confusing deciding which direction our blogs can go. Usually between the first 6 months to a year we settle ourselves in a comfortable spot where we think we want our blog to be sitting, and then of course, through the years we tailor our posts more to topics we become more focused on. It’s ever-changing, but whatever our posts, the bottom line is to keep readers engaged with entertaining and/or informative posts. 🙂


  4. Hugh just verifies what we already know about you, Debby – seeking the best to keep us informed. Just about to launch my new website thanks to inspiration from my online friends.


  5. Dear Debby, it’s a joy to be connected to you and your huge, loving heart. You are a lovely friend and Hugh’s recognition on what you do is well deserved. ❤ hugs and more ❤ Xx


  6. I don’t know if you saw my comment over at Hugh’s but I talked a lot about the awesomeness of you and your blog and there may have been other compliments, too. ? Ah, Debby. It was a great pick. Well-deserved. ? (I kinda love that you don’t check your blog stats. Perhaps that helps you write more authentically. Under threat of witholding chocolate, I couldn’t tell you my blog stats, either.)


    1. Aw, you’re a sweety Sarah. Hmm, thanks for the reminder. I’d been checking back at Hugh’s twice a day since he posted but didn’t make it over today. I’ll buzz over. Thank you for your loveliness my lovely! ❤
