http://www.naughty-and-spice.com/2008/10/21/an-open-letterto-everyone/ - Amie's post at NAS

http://skimdecafmochawithwhip.blogspot.com/ - Damn everyone has new posts. I'm glad to read them, but when it all happens on one day it's a bit much. I'm not blaming you, Kristi, it's just what blog I was on. Kristi's the best. You should read her blog. :)

Last but not least http://bibliothecariusalpha.blogspot.com/ - Merry, I found through NaNo last year when I lived in Sheffield, England. She lives in Derbyshire (darbysure) which I miss immensely.

Fortunately, I've already done 2700 words today, so I don't feel guilty for looking through blogs. Sometimes I go through a few more. Like, all of the ones listed on the side.

Wow, you've been busy all around. Congrats on the word count, I've been very lazy in that regard recently.

I was thinking about Sven today and wondering if there will be another round, ever. Wasn't there usually a poll put up, taking the temperature of the group by now?

Ever try Google Reader? Go to reader.google.com. You can add the "rss" feeds from all your blogs, and it will show you the new posts. I go there every day and see all the new stuff on all the blogs that I'm reading. To post a comment, you can click on the post or the blog name and it links you right up. Very handy, especially for tracking the ones that are sporadic, as you don't have to click a million links to see what's new.

And then, there's a widget in blogger that will suck all the blog feeds out of your Google Reader listing if you want to show them on your blog (you can edit the list).

Not that I mind the mention, of course :)

Cynthia - Sven, where's our nicely sweat-dripping man of action when you need him?

Kristi - There's something nice about roaming around and looking at blogs. Occasionally I'll go to someone's links and pick a blog, any blog. I don't think I can do the google reader thing. It sounds nice and I wouldn't miss any posts, but call me old fashioned, I like the way I go now. Funny how old fashioned just doesn't seem appropriate for a blog.

Did you see?

Sven is back!

Sign ups for round 4 were posted this evening.
