Not only have I made some long lasting friendships in the Cyber World, but I have made a new batch of acquaintances in what I like to call, "The Blog World".
I am still a relative newbie when it comes to blogging, as I've only been doing since Memorial Day weekend 2008, but I've discovered a brand new world semi-normal people like myself out there. Let me tell you about a few of them.
To start with, the main guy on any Cyber World list that I make, would always be Gumby The Cat. Gumby first made the suggestion to me of creating my own blog. Something that I could call my very own and a place where I could comfortably shoot my mouth off without getting censored for it. For that I'm always in his debt. Right now, he's doing what I did last week, taking a much needed vacation.
Next on my list would be Kyle, who has a very neat and quite interesting blog (The Beat Goes On) that leans towards the everyday verbal rants that we would love to say out loud ourselves, but can never quite get around to doing so.
Third would be Chandler, who runs the first writing oriented blog (Fumbling with Fiction) that I caught my eye back in late May/early June of this year. Very knowledgeable and witty, she is someone that people can relate to and aspire to: a writer of young adult fiction, a lawyer in the making, a blogger, a book reviewer and a interviewer.
Fourth would be Sy, who has the second best blog title out there that I found (The Wheel is Turning but the Hamster Is Dead). If you like your humor British and extremely warped, this blog is for you. I found it in early August while surfing a few catalogs, and the title alone made me want to check it out. The man also has talent.
Fifth would be Chat Blanc, who has the best and possibly the only NC-17 rated blog (Wit's Bitch) I've ever seen. Hers I found through the courtesy of Gumby The Cat, which basically explains what my sense of humor is all about. A delightfully charming individual, she is someone you really don't want to get on the bad side of.
All of these people I have found to quite engaging and unique in their own particular way, and I'm glad that I was able make their acquaintance. Please check out their blogs, they really are quite good. And to make it easier, you will find a link to each of their blogs about midway down on the left.
