Take a little cyber trip

I’m going to be sending you all over the place today.

First, you know how the people from Saturn asked me to post something on their website when my car hit 200K and I did and then they said I was a friggin’ blogging rock star and asked me post again, but then my aunt died and I got caught up in preparing my book for the printer and blah, blah, blah? Well, I finally posted again for them; it’s called “Baby gadgets for the car and why some memories are better left repressed.” It’s pretty funny and I think you’ll like it, so if you want to check it out, all you have to do is click here. But then come back because I have other places for you to go.

Good, you’re back. Ha-ha-ha, right?

Okay, the next thing I want to tell you about is www.SheWrites.com. This is a friggin’ awesome social networking site for women writers of all kinds. I cannot believe the sense of community that’s developed in such a short time. They have a million different online forums—I joined the ones for memoir writers and bloggers. (All you girls who have blogs—I expect to see you there.) There’s so much great information about writing, I kind of hate to see the site so slanted toward women. Writing is writing, and everyone can benefit from the same information, you know? So you guys should check it out, too, if you can stand all the estrogen. (But if you're reading this, you must have a high tolerance.)

The third place I want to send you to is a great blog for classic rock lovers—Classic Rock for the Soul. What makes this site unique is that it’s put together not by some dude my age, but by a very cool 19-year-old girl in Texas. I dig this kid and I don’t even know her, but I totally want to adopt her. I’d love to send some traffic her way—she does a nice job.

What else? Oh, yeah, back by popular demand, the boyfriend’s formulating another guest post (you read his first one, right?) I don’t know what he’ll come up with this time, but it’s sure to be more fascinating than the smarty-pants stuff he’s got on his blog.

One more thing: if you’re so inclined, do me a favor and click the Follow button at right. I’m seriously investigating corporate blogging gigs, and it’ll help me if they see that I’ve been able to con people into believing my writing is worth following. I know, it’s little like selling your soul, but I’ll very much appreciate it.

And don’t make me get mushy, but I really, really appreciate all of you stopping by to read the crap I unload here. I love you all, even my crazy stalkers who leave comments that I end up rejecting—you’re still family.

XOXO

Linda

SheWrites.com, huh? Probably not gonna make it into my daily rotation.

But you put up a link to SheMakesMeASamminch.com and I'm there...

Liked the Saturn post Linda, having kids 12 years apart with the most recent one 3 months ago, I was surprised how much more crap you "need" these days. And you're right, back in the day, we didn't have any of that crap and we all turned out ok right??

Also, I just wanted to say thanks for all your comments on my blog and let ya know that I signed up as a follower for you!

Have a good day!

You're in luck, Mikey. I just checked GoDaddy--www.SheMakesMeASammich.com is available. Better grab it before someone else does!

Thanks, Tara. Keep up the good work on your blog. I know you have your hands full.

I'll be back to check out the links later when I'm less likely to take someone's life.

I did follow you though. AGAIN. Not sure why I was unfollowing but I'm back.

The "Follow" button at right is not to follow me on Twitter; it's to follow this blog on your Blogger dashboard or Google reader. You're right--I haven't posted on Twitter in a month and a half and I'm still on holiday from that "scone of technology." Have I missed anything?

'Cause I'm a joker.
I'm a smoker.
