Doreen Pendgracs

Known throughout the Web as the "Wizard of Words", I've been a freelance writer since 1993. I'm currently researching and writing volume II of "Chocolatour: A Quest for the World's Best Chocolate". Volume I was published in September, 2013.

  1. Thanks for the shout out! One of the best things about blogging for me has been the chance to meet people like you, both virtually and even in person—in Hawaii, no less. Best of luck this year for sales of Chocolatours Volume I. I look forward to Volume 2. Cheers.

    Thanks so much for the Shout Out Doreen. I really enjoy reading your blog. My blog right now is about a personal journey but my goal is to write a writing-related blog on a regular schedule like you do. I admire your stick-to-itness (is that really a word? LOL) with blogging and having two blogs as well. Hope your ankle healing process speeds up.

    • Thaks so much, Suzanne. It’s been the support of my writer friends like you that have helped me “stick to it” and keep to my blogging schedule. Without regular readers visiting the blog it is like talking into the wind. But when people join the conversation and share their thought,s it makes it all worth while. Cheers to getting your new writing blog off the ground!

  3. Oh My …I am SO flattered! This is quite a prestigious group and I feel humbled to be among them. I must thank you not only for the shout-out, but for introducing me to a number of new bloggers. I intend to visit every last one. And say…that is one adorable cat. I happen to love the kitties myself. But after my last one went to kitty heaven, I promised myself not to get another two of them until I was old… so they can outlive me:)

    • Thanks for your comment, Jacquie. I do hope you’ll check out each of the bloggers on my list as I think you’ll enjoy each one of them. They all have strong voices — like you! And don’t wait tooo long to get that new cat. The years of pleasure far outweigh the pain of saying goodbye. We got Jimmy the day after Junior died.

  6. Doreen — So nice to learn more about you. Sorry about your ankle and hope it’s getting better. I know most of the bloggers on your blog roll and agree they are tops. I’m so glad that blogging has introduced me to inspiring people like you and them plus many others who are influencing my life.

    • Thx so much, Jeannette. It has been marvellous getting to know you via your blog, and via the comments you have shared on all of my blogs. Social media and blogging may consume a good portion of our time, but it is so worth it when we have the privilege of forging new and meaningful relationships in the process.

    Hi Doreen,
    Congratulations on making your television debut! I know this has been a goal of yours. (It’s just a matter of time before we see you on Ellen.)

    Thanks so much for choosing my blog as one of the ten links that you shared today. I really appreciate it. (You know how much I enjoy working with you.)

    This post came at the perfect time for me. I’m finally kick-starting my second Twitter account. (Actually, I created it a couple of years ago and suddenly realized that by not using it, Twitter could accuse me of “squatting” on it and take it away.)

    I created my first list for that Twitter account and named it “Travel”. Of course, I followed and added you as well as the other travel bloggers that you linked to.

    Thanks again and Happy Blogging!
