Vidyala, I think you had a great idea there - and thanks to Rebecca at MMO Melting Pot for bringing it to my attention. Perhaps I should be a bit more social with fellow bloggers. I have been a bit wall-flowery in the past, as is my nature, but I will step up today and follow your direction.
I started my blog for myself only, simply to make pages of links for my own use. I was always finding this really cool information that I just knew I was going to need, then I would forget where it was. This cloud is not well organized at all, and so the blog was born as my feeble attempt to impose a bit of order and ready access in my own little corner.
But then I happened onto other blogs, and my blogroll was born. Then I wanted to rant a little on occasion, and it seems that a couple people found me somehow and now I am apparently a “Blogger.”
And then my guild fell apart.
Just as Alas was forming Eff the Ineffable, and calling to other bloggers to join.
I am so glad I became a Blogger, accidentally as it was, because The Effers have taken me in, along with my baby alts, and I believe I have found a new home. Someday if I can round up the RL dollars, I will move my favorite toons to Azuremyst. But even if I don’t come up with the money, my little orphans will grow very fast and someday be useful members of the Effin’ guild.
And so I am in fact a part of the community, and I am happy to reciprocate some link love. I really don’t know how long people have been blogging though, so if it’s all the same to you, I will make a slight bend in the rule and simply link regardless of how long the folks have been in business – I just found them, so they are new to me!
Here is who I found today:
Killed in a Smiling Accident
Two people collaborating with sparkling writing style and engrossing content. I have been reading Melmoth and Zoso’s archives for the last half hour, alternately nodding my head wisely in sage agreement and bursting into such hysterical laughter that my cats have all hidden under the sofa until I come to my senses. Highly recommended!
