I've been busy today! I added the "Links" section to my blog, so you can see the places I visit when I'm surfing the web. The thing is, while I have close to a hundred blogs that I check out on a regular basis, I rarely comment on any of them. It's not that I don't like what I see - on the contrary! I love what I see, and I keep going back for more.
Unfortunately, it seems like most bloggers post either during the day (while I'm at work), or at night (while I'm asleep). There's nothing inherently wrong with these times (she says as she types tonight's blog at 11pm). Because I work in a medical office, we've got a fairly tight internet policy. While I can get away with reading one or two blogs for fun while I catch up on the latest medical news, I can't read all of the ones I want, and I certainly can't wander off and comment on them. When I do get a chance to make comments (usually after work), a lot of what I wanted to say has already been said, and I hate to comment with something like, "Yeah, I agree with Mr. X!"
What does all of this mean? Well, it means that the awesome people that I admire probably have no idea who I am.
Except for Lisa and Laura Roecker. They know who I am now. *squee!*
Do you know who they are? You should go check them out! Now! Go! I'll wait here until you get back.
Welcome back! Did you have fun over with LiLa? I'll bet you recognize the book below (since you clearly followed my directions and went to visit their blog!).
Next thing I know, I wake up the next morning with a friend request! How cool is that??
Really, though, I think it's more than a little awesome that someone (well, two someones) that I have been admiring for months thought it would be a good idea to contact me. And it certainly doesn't hurt that they're uber-talented.
I'm planning to start (and finish) The Liar Society this weekend. I would have started it the same day I bought it, except I had three other books in progress, and that's my upper limit for multiple-reads.
Oh, right, there was one more thing! The new list of links is a work-in-progress, mostly because I follow so many blogs that I can't stare at the screen long enough to put them all up at once. Because it's so long, I don't think that many people will just go to that tab and start looking at all of them, all at once. So what I'm going to do is, every week or so, post a blog about these other blogs, and why I follow them. That way, you can a) get an idea of what they're about and b) get a bit of an idea about what I like to read.
Until next time, blogglings, have a nice weekend! And don't forget to visit Lisa and Laura Write!
