Ah, the irony! After weeks of desultory blogging, if that, I was digging around Technorati to see if my authority level had changed. Lo and behold! There was a link to Joyce Valenza's blog in SLJ, where she mentioned me as a new blogger worth listening to. See, this is what you miss when you're not blogging regularly for two months!
A hundred thousand thanks for Joyce for the mention; I'm now even more encouraged to blog regularly and fruitfully (i.e. more content, less rambling!)
