We don’t do Thanksgiving here in Australia. I get asked a lot if we do, but it’s strictly and American Holiday.
But that doesn’t mean I can’t. I’ve never partaken in Thanksgiving before because, frankly, turkeys freak me out. So does sharing and generally being around people. So I sat down to think about how I could possibly celebrate thanksgiving in my own personal way without touching anyone or cooking anything. I thought I might just post about a book or author I’m thankful for today.
But instead, I wanted to say that what I’m really thankful for is you guys. The readers and commenters that make Cuddlebuggery my favourite place on the net. I know we’re horrible right now at replying to comments. When NaNo is over we’ll be back to operational standards. We’re also working hard on commenting on your blogs and spreading the love. We know, we suck. But there are some amazing people who’ve read, commented at and stuck by us no matter how much we’ve sucked!
So here goes:
Kara M who is an awesome friend of ours and always there to cheer us on
Christina from Reader of Fictions who can almost always be counted on to leave awesome, long comments that have us cracking up! Please accept my desperate kisses as a response to your awesome comments.
Heartless Lyn who has also stuck through with us and put up with us for WAAAAAYYY too long.
Kate C – One of our favourite self-pubbed author who always has great input and a very individualistic opinion to share. She’s not afraid to say what she thinks and we love her for that.

If you are missing from this list, it’s not because you are unloved or unvalued. It’s because it’s 11:45pm at night and Kat is tired from writing. Let us know and we’ll make sure we put you on there where you belong!
We also want to thank Paul, Adrienne and Archer who contribute to Cuddlebuggery and enrich it with their awesome posts! We couldn’t do it without you guys and we love having you on the team!
So enjoy your turkey and your family and your big, full bellies, Cuddlebugs!
Lots of love,
Kat and Steph
