Saddle Up Saloon; Blog Blusterin’ « Carrot Ranch Literary Community


Charli Mills has an interesting invitation to join in her TUFF FlashFiction Challenge at the CarrotRanch. D. Avery has challenged us to introduce ourselves and our blogs, the catch – Write it in 99 words exactly – pare it down to 59 words – then pare it down to 9 words only. Good exercise for blurb writing!


Saddle Up Saloon


“Yep. Folks, try defining yer blog’s purpose in 99 words; focus that statement even more in 59 words; then hook us with 9 words. Ya might even post these versions at yer own site. Tell us who ya are or what yer about here in the comments, 9 words, no more no less.”


99 words

Empathetic fashionista and shopper extraordinaire who loves to laugh. My passions are: obsessed with shoes, colorful sunsets, sandy beaches and margaritas on the rocks (in no particular order). My blog, is an eclectic mix of randomness, where you’ll find anything from writing tips to tales from the past, an occasional rant about injustice, relationship talk, travel tips, book reviews, author interviews, and sometimes dabbles in political poetry. It’s almost impossible for me to dwindle it down to just one niche, because it never is. I’m an eclectic memoirist and conversationalist who writes to empower by sharing slices of life.

  1. Well done, Debby! It doesn’t take me ninety-words to describe your blog as an interesting and fun place. A fashionista? I didn’t even know that was a word until just now—probably because I’m fairly clueless when it comes to fashion.😎


    1. Lol Pete, you crack me up! But thank you for the really lovely compliment about my blog. (And this challenge actually reminded me to update my own about page as our friend Hugh reminds us. 🙂


    1. Thanks so much Jennie. And sorry about the darned button. Don’t expect miracles anytime soon. As the full moon and mercury retrograde are on their way, lol 🙂


  2. Well done, Debby! It reminds me of blurbs and elevator pitches by authors for their books. I see this challenge inspired you to change your blog heading as well! 🙂


    1. Exactly Liesbet, very similar to blurb writing – only less words than a book to pare down! Thanks on the header, it was Colleen who made me the header and insisted I put it up, lol. So, I’m glad you like it. ❤


  3. So loved this Debby.. totally a condensed version of self.. 🙂 Lol..
    Oh and by the way… I got your book Conflicted Hearts…. 🙂 A present to myself…. I hope to start reading soon…. Sending Huge Hugs my dear friend… Love and well wishes…


    1. Oh wow Sue, I’m humbled. I just read in your former comment how your bookshelves are toppling over, so thank you my friend!!!! I look forward to hearing your thoughts in review when you manage to get to the book. Namaste my Soul Sister ❤ xoxo


      1. I will be sure to let you know Debby, that’s a promise… As soon as I have read it.. It may well be a few weeks yet with the way I am going between garden, paints, knitting and reading lol… . I am looking forward to reading it…. And smiled so much when it first arrived.. 🙂 MUCH LOVE…. ❤


      2. I’m humbled Sue. I checked out that book you’re currently reading and added it to my list. It’s not yet available on Kindle, and I was floored to see it’s almost 700 pages!!! ❤ Love and happy reading!!!! xoxox
