Blog-Hopping and Goofing Off

I'm visiting as many blogger friends as I can this afternoon, so I decided to give you a few links as I find entertaining or enlightening posts. This, I think, is called killing two birds with one stone.

First, I was on Ann Best's Long Journey Home blog, reading about her Blogger troubles, and followed a link to Meghan Ward's Writerland. Meghan's fun April post on How to Lose Blog Readers has a lot of pointers we should remember (actually, not remember is more accurate).

Barbara Scully was tagged by me a few days ago, and she answered her questions on yesterday's post at From My Kitchen Table. I find her list especially interesting because hers is the first one I've read that did not include chocolate as one of her favorite snacks.

Michele Emrath at Southern City Mysteries has a weekly roundup of the great posts she finds.

And when I followed one of Michele's links, I ended up at Jen's Book Thoughts by Jen Forbus. Yesterday she listed My 30 Best Crime Fiction People to Follow on Twitter.

And finally, here's Word Play Tuesday at The Blood-Red Pencil. The word of the day is: spring.

Hope you find something interesting or fun. I'm off to check that Twitter list.

Just when I told myself I needed to quit blog hopping and get back to work, your list convinced me there are a few more blogs I must hop to first.

Jane -- does that make me a bad influence? :) I keep saying I'm going to get back to work too.

Barbara also did not include red wine LOL! Thanks for the list. Will have to check out the one or two I haven't seen up to now. Have a wonderful Tuesday evening.

Hi Patricia,
Blog hopping is a worthy time waster. I've found some amazing blogs that way; many of them links from your blog.
