Tagged!

Got the word on Twitter that I have been 'tagged' for a blogging meme by Chris Galvin, with the intention of connecting and introducing bloggers to eachother and learning about eachother.¬† I like these questions, they're deeper than the usual 'what's your favorite color?' type.

I’m Not Ignoring You

I've been meaning to tell everyone about this and keep forgetting. I wanted to let you guys know that the "Following" page (which used to be "Blogs I Follow" or something¬† like that) is not updating in a timely manner for me.

The problem is, I can't seem to … Continue reading Need Input, Por Favor

To Infinity, and Beyond!

Well, maybe not that long. Spurred by a comment from Chazz with regard to what the future may hold for this blog, and encouraged by my dear friend, MaryJBlog, I did a short three-card reading on what the future has in store for my little corner of the blogosphere.

Publishing of the Future
