Light My (Blog) Fire


Yesterday’s winner of their choice of either a PAX t-shirt, PAX mug, or PAX tote bag: comment #34—Danni! (Email me!) Just a few more days of the Extravasuzannza! Don’t miss it! We had a great holiday yesterday and I’ve posted some of the fireworks pictures here just for fun. There was some whining because in North Carolina, unlike when we lived in Texas, you aren’t allowed to set off personal fireworks that leave the ground. Our kids managed to have fun getting in touch with their inner pyromaniac anyway. πŸ˜†

Psst–I’m giving away copies of The Honeymoon Man today. And The Beast Within should be everywhere! Let me know if you see it in your hometown bookstore!

Over six months ago I started my blog (the archives here only go back to February because I didn’t move over all of them when I switched blogging platforms a while back). When I started blogging I only knew a handful of people who had blogs, and now almost everyone I know has a blog! It’s a blog explosion in romanceland!

Through blogging, I’ve gotten to know writers, readers, reviewers, and booksellers across the country–and the world! When I started my blog, I thought it would be fun. I studied the blogs I could find and realized that the ones where the bloggers posted regularly and energetically were the most entertaining to me. Personally, I haven’t missed a day in six months except when we were away on vacation and this past weekend when I set up an entry with a contest to stand all weekend. Blogging is the first thing I do every day. It’s become part of my life, like my morning coffee. And all the blogs I visit have become part of my life, too. So thank you to all of you bloggers out there who entertain me every day with your blogs–and all of you who come here to visit me.:heart:

Today, as a thank-you to you, anyone who would like an autographed copy of my romantic comedy, The Honeymoon Man, leave a comment here then email me today with your address! If you don’t need a copy, please still let me know what you think about blogging–if you blog, or if you don’t.

The question of the day: If you have a blog, what inspired you to start your blog and do you enjoy blogging? How has blogging changed your life? If you don’t have a blog, have you ever thought about starting one? (For readers, there are a lot of wonderful reader blogs out there–here are just a few examples: Maili, Nicole, Alyssa, and Tara Marie.) Have you ever thought of starting a reader blog if you’re a reader?


  1. Maureen says:

    I just don’t have the time or the constant access to a computer that your need. Reading them and leaving comments when you have something to say is more enjoyable for me.

  2. Dena Walton says:

    I don’t have a blog and wouldn’t start one for one reason, I could never think up enough interesting things to put on it on a daily basis. I do enjoy othes though. Especially my favorite authors, they are informative, insightful, thoughtful, and funny. I think they are great outlets for those with a imaginative mind.

  3. Carol says:

    Congratulations Danni!

    I don’t have a blog and I know I never will. I can’t write and I have nothing to say that anyone would want to read. I love reading your blog and several others that are interesting and funny. I would love a copy of The Honeymoon Man. Thank you!

  4. Cheryl S. says:

    I would never be able to blog. Nothing too interesting in my life that others would want to read. I love reading your blog and a few others because you always find the bright side of things and you start my day off with a smile. Another reason I love your blog is because you write about everyday things that we all cope with and that makes me think of you as a “regular” person instead of being awe-struck to be talking to a favorite author. You make us feel welcome. Would love a copy of The Honeymoon Man although I feel greedy asking for it after the other things I’ve won here.

  5. Jorie says:

    I’ve seen The Beast Within at a number of stores around here in southern Ontario; and I picked up a copy at my grocery store!

    As for blogging, I just wanted my own personal space for putting down my reading and writing thoughts. Although I write less about reading as I read more blogs and ‘meet’ more authors.

    I, too, like blogging almost every day, but I’m finding it harder in the summer time with all the distractions!

  6. Suzanne says:

    I bet you guys have more interesting things to say than you think! You brighten my day with your great comments! I love having you all here!

    Cheryl, don’t feel greedy! I have so many boxes of my backlist books. I finally found a way to put them in the hands of readers after I got my blog, so I love to give them away! And I am really just a regular person, LOL! I’m that woman at the grocery store….wearing a PAX t-shirt.:hyper:

  7. Suzanne says:

    Jorie, thank you for buying The Beast Within!

  8. Anna B says:

    Gorgeous fireworks, Suzanne, and you are one generous woman. How could I resist a title like “The Honeymoon Man?” I’d love a copy.

    As a soon-to-be-pubbed author (January!) I like to read author blogs for insight on writing, publishing, reading and all the miscellenia of the writing life, but for inspiration for my own site/blog.

    When the person who’s helping redesign my site asked for some author sites with looks I especially like, yours was right on the top of the list. Good colors, sets a tone, easy to read and navigate. :thumbsup:

  9. Amelia says:

    As for blogs, I love reading them and seeing the thoughts of others, plus the interesting comments made by those who read that blog. Do not know if I will ever start one of my own. If I did decide to do one, I would want to be certain that I would have time to devote to it. But it would be a fun way to meet new people.

    Have seen your thrilling book, The Beast Within, in all the stores around here, whether chain bookstore or discount store. And many of them were already sold!

    Thanks for the wonderful offer of your older release. I really appreciate it!

  10. kacey says:

    Still no BEAST here. Dammit. :hissyfit:

    I love to blog. I’ve met so many interesting people this year from the romance writing/reading world of bloggers.

    And AnnaB is right. Your website is gorgeous and easy to navigate. And your menu buttons say what they actually LEAD to. Some websites have cutesy, clever words on their menu…and I can’t figure out where they’re taking me.. :fryingpan: I’m all for quick, easy, navigation on websites! :thumbsup:

  11. Michelle says:

    I started my blog back at the beginning of this year, and I feel like it’s brought me in touch with so many people. I’m an aspiring author myself and it’s nice to make new friends and share interests. I enjoy visiting yours and I hope to find many more folks to meet.

    I’d love a copy of Honeymoon Man. πŸ™‚ And I already have a copy of Beast. Can’t wait to dive in. :bananadance:

  12. Crystal says:

    I love to read a blog and post comments. I don’t think I would ever have my own since I wouldn’t have interesting things to talk about.

  13. mary beth says:

    Hi Suzanne!
    I started blogging after eading yours. It was so much fun tocome read what you’d been up to, and I spent so much time laughing over Church of Christ and your remodeling. I decided a blog would be my self-support system, adn it would force me to work on voice. AND it works as a positive reinforcement of sorts.Almost an affirmation.
    I LOVE reading blogs, especially funny ones.
    I have The Beast Within. Woo Hoo!

  14. Alyssa says:

    Wow, cool fireworks pics! I wish mine turned out as well.

    Thanks for mentioning my blog! I will celebrate my one-year blogging anniversary in two months. Most of the time, it’s no problem for me to come up with things to write about. It helps that I write about books I read. Well, sometimes I use it as a place to vent, too. People like variety, right? :mrgreen:

    The main way that blogging has changed my life is that it’s allowed me to “meet” so many wonderful people. I feel like the people who comment at my blog are friends, and the people whose blogs I visit are friends. I think it’s a wonderful way to interact with people, because you really get to know them as time passes.

    I just checked out the description of Mr. Honeymoon Man, and I would love a copy! I love stories about childhood friends (or enemies!) getting together.

  15. Jill says:

    I enjoy blogging because as a writer, it gives me contact with PEOPLE during the day. Love that.

  16. Mary says:

    Suzanne McMinn inspired me to blog. So I owe it all to her. Thanks Suzanne. I love blogging because I love writing.

  17. Emma says:

    Hi Suzanne,
    I don’t have a blog, but I love to read authors blogs. I enjoy reading your books. I would like a copy of Honeymoon Man. Thank you.

  18. Stacey115 says:

    Blogging? I don’t think I would have enough to say to blog everyday. I think it would be fun to try, but I am kinda a shy person. I am not sure it would work out for me.
    But on the plus side, I love reading yours!:wigglebrow:
    I would love a copy of Mr. Honeymoon Man.
    Thank you!

  19. Toni Anderson says:

    I love blogging because it is my little space in the web and nobody can tell me what to do with it. :mrgreen:

    I used to write in a journal, but found blogging is a way I can keep friends and family up-to-date with my life and hopefully meet new people/writers.

    I love your blog Suzanne, I would love a copy of Mr Honeymoon Man–I saw the Beast in Winnipeg yesterday–moved it to the front of the shelf πŸ˜‰

  20. Emily says:

    I love my blog!

    I feel so special when people comment and I’ve made so many “friends.” With a solitary profession like writing, it’s a great way to interact with people.

    I think I probably spend way too much time reading blogs, but that’s not something I’m willing to give up yet!

  21. Robyn says:

    Congrats Danni. I would love a copy of The Honeymoon Man-love humor in books.
    I love participating in your blog and several others. It is nice to meet other people; I like that you include ‘every day’ and ‘down-to-earth’ situations in your blog as well as your books. Thanks.:heart:

  22. BJ Deese says:

    Hi Suzanne. Love the fireworks pics. I did have a blog, but it was taking too much time, so now I just visit other blogs. πŸ™‚

  23. Kelly says:

    I think I started doing it because I was intrigued with author blogs, posting their successes, their woes, their promotions. But I never thought I’d meet such great people and the support, I’ve come across. πŸ˜€

  24. Saundra M says:

    I have kept a journal for a few years now, but my mind tends to think faster than I can write, so I think blogging is just for me. I am currently looking at blog sites and will let you know when I get it started. I’ve always loved to write! Great fireworks pics. Ours were awful, the pics, not the fireworks.
    I do enjoy reading blogs after reading yours, and will be a daily visitor. Have a terrific Tuesday! πŸ™‚

  25. ruby55 says:

    Before I go any further, I should tell you the BEASTs have arrived. They were in stores by the end of last week. I didn’t buy mine until yesterday because I get an extra percentage off on the first Monday of every month. Sorry, I’d love to read it right away but I have two books to finish before Thurs. They definitely need to be back by then.

    As to blogging, uh…I do seem to have a lot to say on YOURS, but I’m not normally a chatty person and as for letters, I still owe a whole lot of people one from about ten years back when I visited all sorts of friends and relatives in Germany. :shocked: But it would be great if they all had computers and could chat with me in a blog. Using the Internet in Germany is an expensive proposition because even local phone calls cost a certain amount. So any use of the telephone wires would be expensive. I don’t know if they have any alternatives yet.

    And no, I don’t have that book yet and I’d love it.

    As Jill says, I think I get my people-contact here, too. That’s probably why my entries tend to be on the longer side. I don’t have much contact during a week. :rotfl:

  26. Mary Stella says:

    I started my blog at the strong urging of my cp & friend Beth Ciotta and the V.P. of Marketing at my publishing house. Now that I’ve had a blog since March, I thoroughly enjoy the whole process, even though it takes a fair amount of time. I blog to entertain, even on the few times when I’m being serious. If someone comes to my blog and laughs, or is touched in some way, or even just enjoys the few minutes it took them to read the day’s entry, then I’m happy. (Although, I love when people leave comments!)

    Suzanne… I picked up The Beast Within at a Border’s Express in Hamilton Twp. NJ over the weekend. (Near Atlantic City.) Of course, I forgot that I’d also ordered it from! So now I’m passing on one of my copies to someone else.

  27. Juanita Stender says:

    I hope everyone had a great Fourth of July.:grin:I just recently considered starting a blog but haven’t total committed to the idea. I was way too busy in the past to do one but now that I am alone it might be fun. It might be useful to tell people about the problems I have had to go through in the last 2 and a half years since my husband suddenly died without a will or trust. Maybe I could save someone else some of the troubles. I never dreamed it would be so complicated and take so long. As far as everyday life – that is kind of humdrum now. I do like to travel and that could also be a good subject for a blog. Suzanne- I am going to the bookstore today for my weekly fix and will pick up a copy of your new book. I can’t wait!:hyper:

  28. Marcy says:

    I don’t have a blog. Several people tell me I MUST have one, but I hesitate due to the public nature of the internet. LOL Not that I’d be posting anything all that mind boggling. 😯 It’s probably because I work on a locked Psych unit and learned not to give out personal information.

    I’d love a copy of The Honeymoon Man! Thank you so much! :heart:


  29. Gladys Paradowski says:

    Hope my luck here takes a change. But I refuse to give up.
    We had a terrific fireworks display here last night, but since it was televised statewide, I didn’t fight the crown to see it in person, but watched it on TV. There were over 100,000 people in attendance, so I can imagine what the traffic was like.

  30. Heather says:

    I would love a copy of Mr. Honeymoon Man.
    I blog because… well I’m a really shy person but it’s a great outlet. I started blogging after a friend started hers and I loved it so much. I read a bunch of blogs, mainly authors and other writers blog, they usually inspire me to keep writing.

  31. Gladys Paradowski says:

    I some how missed the daily question, so I am trying again.

    I don’t have a blog, but I only today thought about starting one. I would like to have a way to get in contact with friends from my old high school. I signed up at, but that only shows who has signed up. One must pay to contact anyone. It would be nice to have a place where we could make contact for free. I had a great time in high school and there are many friends I would love to hear from again.

  32. Suzanne says:

    Thank you for buying The Beast Within, Mary, Sigrun, and Mary Beth!! And Juanita, thanks for looking for it today!

    Saundra, I’ll be looking forward to visiting your blog!

    Anna and Kacey, thank you for the compliments on my website! Of course I owe all of that to my designer, Emily at CiaoMyBella, so I must give her the credit!

    BJ, I miss your blog. :hissyfit:

  33. Amy K. says:

    I love blogging because it’s a way to get to know others out there. I feel a lot closer to my “blog” friends than I have to anyone on various writing loops. And someday, when I’m published, I hope it will be a way to have contact with readers. I also love SHARING my blog with my 3 critique partners because then I only have to think of something to say every fourth day. :thumbsup:

    I’d love a copy of Mr. Honeymoon Man. Bring it on! :guitar:

  34. TeresaH says:

    Yeah, no Beast here yet either.:sad:

    I would never make a blog either, I would probably bore everyone to death by rattling on and on and on….

    Suzanne has the best blog around! I have so much fun here with everyone.:thumbsup:

  35. Sharon says:

    I blog because after ten years and three kids, it’s nice to have an adult conversation that doesn’t involve diapering, burping, whining, fighting, puking etc. Plus it’s a great outlet for my inner bitch :thumbsup:

    And oh yeah, I’m emailing you. I want that book :mrgreen:

  36. wanda flanagan says:

    I love to blog here but doubt I ever have my own as I don’t have much free time .

  37. Danica says:

    My blog is almost a year old… in a few days, I think. Yikes! How fast our babies grow up.

    I love blogging, because it helps me keep up to date on other people, especially those I can’t chat with as often as I’d like, and it gives others a chance to keep up with me, since anyone who knows me knows that I go a million miles an hour and don’t stop unless I crash.

    I didn’t think I’d have enough to say to sustain one, but I think that’s proven to be the opposite. πŸ™‚

    And I would love a copy of Mr. Honeymoon Man, too. πŸ™‚ Thanks for sharing your books!

  38. Nicole says:

    I enjoy blogging. I started on a whim after reading a lot of reader/author blogs and never really thought I’d last. I don’t post everyday and don’t put out a lot of personal info, but I love to talk about the books that I’ve read and it’s become a nice reading journal of sorts.

    It’s also nice to interact with the blog community since I don’t see many people during the day.

  39. Tracee says:

    πŸ˜† No blog and haven’t thought about it…

  40. Sonja (from HCRW) says:

    I’ve been a blogger since December 2003 (I think). It’s just awesome to me that someone is actually going to read what I write and have a chance to comment on it right away! It’s egocentric, I know, but oh-so-thrilling. πŸ™‚

  41. Lis says:

    I love blogging. Its a great way to meet other people and writers and learn things too. I started mine originally as a way to keep my buds up to date on things with me and as a place to ramble and rant when I didn’t feel like filling up their inboxes πŸ™‚
    I think its changed my life a little, I have a lot more contact with other writers (I tend to lurk more on some writers loops) it feels less intimidating to write a comment on someone’s blog then to jump in mid conversation in some places. And I’ve definitely made some good friends through blogging too :hyper:
    Any more copies of The Honeymoon Man? The title alone makes me smile! hehe

  42. Crystal* says:

    I’m with Jill. I blog because I can connect with people such as myself. It’s a great feeling when one lives out in the middle of nowhere. That’s my official address. :rotfl:
    I would love a copy of The Honeymoon Man. Thanks for the generosity! :yes:

  43. Tori says:

    I first had a blog on Livejournal eons ago, but I never did anything with it. Then you started yours and it was like a smack upside the head. :fryingpan: So I started working on having a “real” blog. Now I post every day even if I have nothing to say. πŸ˜† In fact, sometimes it seems my posts about nothing get more comments than anything else. :rotfl:

    However, I already have a copy of The Honeymoon Man. πŸ™‚ And I’m still waiting for The Beast Within to ship. πŸ‘Ώ

  44. melissa marsh says:

    I love to blog. I only started mine a few months ago, but I can’t believe the difference it’s made in my life – oh nothing earth-shattering, but I’ve come to know so many people and share in the same experiences with others. I love the internet for bringing us closer to one another. Although it is still a bit impersonal, I wouldn’t have met a lot of people without it.
    It also makes me write everyday and that keeps my writing muscles in shape. I notice it’s a lot easier for me to sit down and work on my WIP now – the words flow much better.
    I think there is also a genuine interest in how the writer works – and writer blogs give us a glimpse into that world.

  45. Tammy C says:

    I love to visit blogs but, there are only a few I visit regularly like this one, Jill Shalvis and Jo Leigh. I wouldn’t put up my own blog just because I don’t think I’d have much to say everyday that would be interesting to everyone else. I love reading and have no interest in writing or trying to write a book but, I like reading about the authors insights on the book.

  46. Jeanette Jackson says:

    I have never thought about starting a blog..I lead a very boring and uninteresting life..all the entries would be the out of bed, ate breakfast,watched tv, ate lunch, played on computer,ate dinner, went to bed

  47. Gina says:

    I tried blogging starting back in November, and I didn’t know much about it. I din’t know about reading others, and making contacts. My current blog is actually my third attempt at keeping a regular blog. I found Romancing the Blog, and from there I learned more about blogging and finding others. I love reading the blogs of others. I have many that I read regularly. My own blog starts my own day. I’m usually just heading to bed around 5-6am, so when I come online in the afternoon, I have a full list of blogs to read, and then I write my own. I’ve had a personal journal on one of the journal sites for years, and I tend to write in that daily, so writing in my blog everyday comes naturally to me. It starts my day. I’d love a copy of The honeymoon man if it isn’t too much trouble.

  48. Beth C says:

    Oh my gosh. I can’t remember WHY I started blogging, what inspired it. I do remember asking my husband what a ‘blog’ was. And I do remember that you and Jill (Shalvis) were two of the first blogs I visited. (And I have been hooked on you two ever since.) I remember that YOU were a strong influence in my own personal blogging. :wave: I love blogging. I appreciate the friends I have made by blog hopping. I’ve learned a lot, and I have found a new support group. Blogging has become a daily ritual, and a welcome addition in my manic my life. :bananadance:

  49. Brenda Bradshaw says:

    I’m feeling incredibly stupid. I was going through some of my archives and came across the post you’d made regarding ON WRITING and thought, “I don’t remember what this Suzanne’s site looks like.” (I usually link people to my blog that visit me. So I clicked on it and it lead me to this site, which I KNOW I’ve never been to, and then I see the picture of the book I JUST picked up at Walmart and it’s YOU! I’m having a freak-out moment. And a “duh” moment.

    I feel lame! LOL!

  50. Suzanne says:

    Thank you, TeresaH and TammyC! I’m glad you enjoy my blog. I enjoy having all of you visit me! It wouldn’t be the same without you!

    Beth, I’m so glad you were inspired to start your own blog because I enjoy your blog!

    Jeanette, you said something similar to what other readers said, but I bet you would have great reader blogs if you kept reading journals like Nicole does, for example. I bet you have more interesting things to say than you think! And authors LOVE to read reader blogs, so you are more fascinating than you know!

  51. Suzanne says:

    Hi, Brenda! Thank you for picking up my book!!!

  52. Elizabeth says:

    I do have a blog which I started because of your site! However, I haven’t even made one entry because I am such a private person that I rethought it. My daughter has a blog and strangers subscribe to it. That creeps me out. However, I print out her blog entries for her and will bind them into a book for her to see later when she’s an adult. I think she’ll get a kick out of it.

  53. Suzanne says:

    Hi, Elizabeth! That’s neat that you print out your daughter’s posts. You could use a “pen name” for your blog (or just your first name) and not mention where you live or anything. There are lots of ways to protect your privacy and still keep a reader blog. I’d love to see more readers start blogs because I’m fascinated with getting the perspectives of readers.

  54. Kim says:

    I’m at work all day and don’t have a lot of time. Some day when I retire, it’s something that I would like to do. Right now if I find any extra time, I like to spend it with my head buried in a book and I don’t want to take away from that. Your blog is one of the few that I try to stop by and read every day. I love hearing your stories and you have such a great sense of humor.

  55. Mechele Armstrong says:

    I’m new to the blogosphere and had my doubts about starting one. But I’ve found I enjoy it. I like the interaction when people leave me comments. And it’s been fun writing the entries.

    I’ve found I like reading other people’s. It gives me a look into their thoughts.

    I would love to read more reader blogs as well.

    Suzanne, you were the very first person I didn’t already know to leave me a comment. I snoopy danced that someone who didn’t really have to…read it. Thank you for that. Definitely made an impact on keeping it going past the learning curve. :mrgreen:

  56. Beth says:

    Thanks Suzanne for the comment on my blog.
    I blog just to keep a running list of what i read and if i feel the urge, write about what I’ve read. I was just writing down my books in a special notebook but this just seems to work a little better for me.
    Ive seen “The Beast Within” at both Walmarts ive been to in the past week. I just havent picked it up yet. My book buying has become rampant. Ive been trying to cut back and just read what ive got on my TBR shelves. I’ve also got some library books from work i need to read.
    As for my 4th, even though its illegal in NC to do “those” fireworks, Some friends at a party i went to had some on Sunday. I spent the weekend with my SO.

  57. Teresa says:

    I started my blog in September of last year I think. And I did it as a way to document my journey to publication and to meet other’s along the same journey. I really wasn’t sure if the blog would work for me but now I love it. I try not to miss a day but sometimes I do. And I feel funny when I do. It’s a great creative outlet and such a wonderful way to meet and make new friends.

  58. Charlene says:

    I haven’t seen The Beast Within yet, but I’m watching for it! I’d love to read your romantic comedy, too. :mrgreen:

    I started blogging because my husband kept telling me I should. And I finally realized it was a nifty thing to add to my website. I’m so glad I did, because I’ve met lots of interesting people and become introduced to many new-to-me authors I’d still be missing out on if I hadn’t! Blogging has been a great experience. I :heart: my blog. :thumbsup:

  59. Laurie says:

    Hi Suzanne,
    I really enjoy reading your blog everyday! You’re so entertaining! Love the firework pictures…we live on a lake during the summer months and many of the other owners try to out do the others with beautiful dueling fireworks! I lead a pretty boring life, I doubt that anyone would stick with my blog!!
    I’d love a copy of “THE HONEYMOON MAN”.
    Hope you have one left. Thanks!!

  60. Melissa says:

    :no: Never thought of starting a reader blog.

  61. Alyssa says:

    I forgot to say why I started blogging. I found Laurie’s blog through All about Romance, and through it, I found Rosario and Wendy’s blogs. After making regular visits, I decided to give blogging a try myself. Alison Kent’s was the first author blog I found.

    I miss BJ’s blog, too.


  62. Joely says:

    I love blogging. I’ve met so many fabulous people, like YOU, Suzanne! I’ve learned from people willing to share their experiences. And I’ve found some terrific authors that I didn’t know to look for until I started faithfully reading their blogs. If I ever reach the point of having faithful readers myself, I’ll definitely pay it forward and try to be as helpful and inspiring.

  63. Janet says:

    I don’t have a blog, because I don’t have a website. I’m really enjoying this one. It’s the first time I’ve ever participated in a blog. I’ve had a lot of fun bantering with everyone the last few days.

  64. Estella Kissell says:

    I would not like to start a blog, but I love visiting yours. It is a lot easier to navigate than some I have visited.
    I would love a copy of Homeymoon Man,

  65. Lynn Daniels says:

    Suzanne, I love your blog! It’s become a daily stop for me.

    I started blogging last September, I think, and originally, I did it just because I was curious about blogging. Everybody talked about it, and I wanted to try it. Now it’s become a daily thing for me…to the point that if I can’t get to my computer during the day, I even audioblog!

    Two of the best things I’ve discovered about blogging are 1) the people I’ve “met”, whether through comments they’ve left for me or by me reading other blogs, and 2) if I’m stuck, I just hop on my blog and freewrite. Eventually, the writing mood hits and I’m off and running on my story!

    Holy … ! How the mack did I manage to miss this one? Thank you for the mention of my blog. πŸ˜€

    I’m rather sorry that many respondents believe they have nothing to say. Their responses to your previous entries say otherwise. Oh, well, I hope some day they will give it a try some day because, as you said, many of us would love to see more reader blogs.

    Hm. This is a veddy late response. That’s the story of my life, being at a party that everyone’s already left. Oh, wait. Me all alone? Yay –
