Use Me and Abuse Me Day – Time to Party!

Hello all you Wild Riders out there! It’s time for another Use Me and Abuse Me Day! Yep. It’s that special day when you can use my blog to meet some new writers and make some new friends.

Go through your posts and pick one you think the guests might enjoy. Paste ONE link (URL), in my comment section. Feel free to include a short “hook” to entice other partiers to come to your place (blog). If you have a book to sell, go for it!

That’s when the party begins. As others post their links, peruse the guests and check them out. Click on their links. You may meet a writer you’re not familiar with. Say hello! Introduce yourself. Tell them Susie sent you.

This is a great opportunity to make some new friends and follow a few new blogs. Hey! Maybe they’ll follow you back!

This is my way of thanking all of you Wild Riders for coming by and reading. Because you are the best, I have spared no expense. I set up the bar, the never-ending fresh appetizers, the deluxe coffee maker and delectable desserts. Everything is calorie-free and on the house!  All I ask that you consider following my blog.

Remember that no one with any sense comes to a party, fills a huge doggy bag and leaves. If you leave a link, click on a couple.

The party should rock right through the weekend. Now run along and mingle!

  1. Can’t dance to save my life – imagine a zombie caught on an electric fence – but I do like your blog parties, Susie.
    A little while ago a friend of mine saw George Clooney in ‘The Descendants’ and said: “He plays the part of a good man.” Soon after I was asked to be godfather to a very special young lad and it made me wonder about that … what I’d like to tell him one day about becoming a good man. Here it is:


    1. That was a very enlightening post! I should research my genre again.
      Regardless of how it is doing in the marketplace, I plan to get it out there when it is finished and professionally edited. Sometime before the next millenia I hope! 🙂


        1. Go to my “About” page sometime and click on my story about the Stanley Hotel! Creepy or what???? And totally true. I am writing a mystery/thriller and am including similar paranormal experiences…..


    1. I usually do a pre-party post, but skipped it and just included a line at the bottom of my photo essay. I will give everyone a heads up next time!
      Loved your post and copied the recipe! “Sweet!”


    1. What a fun post! I gotta believe things are looking up! Or are you blogging from Paris??? Hahaha!
      Thanks for coming Alicia! I hope you make a lot of new friends here! Just click on a few links and say hello! They will be very glad you did!


  2. You know how to throw a party, Susie! Thanks for hosting another fun one! Already found (and followed) two blogs I didn’t know. I mingle much more at online parties than at live ones 🙂
    I’m totally smitten with the cover for my debut novel, WICKED SENSE. I can’t stop staring at it *sigh* The cover, a little bit of how it came to be, and the blurb are here:


    1. Thanks Fabio! I’m glad you came by!
      The cover is spectacular and so professional! Sometimes I don’t know why certain covers are picked since they don’t convey anything from the book.
      What’s your next project?


  3. Oh Susie, you are so generous with these parties. I love them!
    This time I am going to share my post which contains photos of nearby Galway Bay and County Clare here in the west of Ireland. The photos are from a day trip I took with my daughters earlier this summer – hoping for sunshine – but we got Irish weather (grey skies!). Hope you like.
    Now I’m off to mingle at this party. Thanks again!!


  4. Since it is release day for Myndi Shafer’s new book “Shrilugh”, I thought it only right that I take this time to promote it here:

    It is available on Smashwords, Amazon or iTunes.

    Congratulations Myndi!!!!

    Also, because a lot of people are under so much stress right now, with some feeling overwhelmed and burned out, I wrote a post this week to hopefully make y’all feel a little bit better. This post is for all of you!

    “R-E-S-P-E-C-T, Just a Little Bit…” Check it out at:

    Thanks Susie! Loved the video girl! You are so talented!
    I hope you’ve enjoyed your Colorado summer! 🙂


    1. Hi Karla! Somehow I missed you in the crowd on the dance floor!
      That sounds like a wonderful post! You may want to come back and leave a link to a post from your blog so you can lure people over there too! Then, click on a few bloggers links and they will most likely click back! Tell them that Susie sent you!


      1. Yeah I way ahead of you there already hit the buffet and mingled up to the wee hours. Ran into some people form your other party and new ones, like 4amwriter … nice posts. Good party 🙂


  5. Selden Edwards took 30 years to write his debut novel, which became a bestseller in 2008. This month, he released his second book, and I scored an exclusive interview with him about revision, rejection and the creative process. It’s here:

    Thanks for hosting the party, Susie! I’m off to check out some links.


      1. Susie! What wonderful friends you have on your blog!

        I have spent a few hours now checking out numerous sites. Well worth every minute as I feel I have a few new cyber friends now! 🙂 Thanks for the party!


        1. Oh good! Wow! I am glad you got the hang of the party right off the bat! So many leave a link and wait….and wait….and wait…That’s not how we roll here on the Wild Ride! You Rock!


  6. Susie…Your video: I’m in the process of researching a Hudson River painting that may have been painted in the Rocky Mountain area. Would you let me know what mountain range is show in your panorama, please?
    Would you kindly respond to my jotsfromasmallapt…in the event I have questions…may I contact you? Thank you so much, Raye
    PS….Love your stuff!!!


  7. Hey Susie, this is my first time to your party but I’ll be back! What a blast!
    Today I want to share a post I reblogged about Song of Sahel, a very special event on Sept. 15 at at

    Song of Sahel, brings together artists from all over the world, including the UK, US, Ireland, Spain, Sri Lanka, Canada, South America, Germany, Netherlands, India and Australia to one platform in the hope of raising awareness of the plight of the people living in the Sahel. Hope you can join us!
    I’m off to mingle now, thanks! ~clink~


    1. Thanks Ted! Now that would be a trick! She would be worth her weight in dog biscuits.
      You are never too late for a party here!
      Click on few links and tell them Susie sent you! They will be glad that you did. 🙂
