Blog Culling

I'm back in!

Into reading blogs and such that is. I stopped bothering about my RSS reader sometime mid-November because of NaNoWriMo. Then Christmas hit. And it took me this long to open that scary program and sift through the 600+ blog entries I had missed.

I also decided to allow myself 20 (only 20?!) blogs that I read regularly. This meant I had to get rid of 73 blogs. You can imagine why I had to limit my intake.

How do you balance intake of internet stuff with writing? Do you give yourself limits? Do you find that other people's blogs help you write?

Since I'm back into blog reading now, I feel a lot more connected to the interwebz and will probably be posting more regularly. I've been trying to have a loose schedule of posting every Monday.

Keep writing everyone!

Linda at leftbrainwrite blog will donate $1 to Doctor's Without Borders to help the Haitian people for every comment left on her blog.

Like she said, it won't cost you a thing to stop by and say hi!

We all make mistakes...and special project

So about my secret project that I've been working on...

I had an entire blog post to show you and for some reason blogger erased it when I tried to post it. :( But we all make mistakes. I know I've deleted stuff before without meaning to.

Sorry about that. I truly meant to post on Monday.

Anyways, my secret project has been making altered journals to give away to others. The idea is that the journal will either simply inspire them as they come across pages that have been altered, or the owner of the journal will write a story that has something to do with each page.

Here are some pictures of the journal I made for my younger brother for Christmas. I'm working on writing a short story to go with each special page, but that will be a long time coming.

Happy New Year!

And yet, all I can think about is how sad it is that the glow-in-the-dark glasses with the double 'O' in the middle of 2000-2009 will never frame my face again. I wonder what the company who made those glasses is doing now that there's a big, stinkin' one in the middle. Ones are hard to see through, you know.
