PROJECT 20/20: HELP ME BUILD MY BLOGROLL

Hi Writers,
I'm kicking off a new project here on my blog: Project 20/20. No, this is not an attempt to solicit funds for my Lasik© surgery (although, if you like, send c/o Writer's Digest, 4700 E. Galbraith Rd., Cincinnati, OH 45236).

This purpose of this project is to build my blogroll. I've been thinking, you know, blogging is all about sharing and connecting and being part of larger and larger circles now, isn't it?

Now, look at my blogroll. I know, except for the (entirely awesome) WD Blogs, it's skimpy. Not being a very good bloggess now am I? (Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure I just made up the word "bloggess").

So here's the deal: There are 20 Fridays left in 2007. Starting next Friday, I'm going to highlight one writer's blog each week then add it to my guaranteed-to-be-fabulous blogroll.

I'm looking for blogs that:
• are dedicated to the topic of writing and/or publishing
• are updated frequently
• are owned and maintained by private individuals

So if you want me to check out your blog, drop a comment here.

Keep Writing,
Maria
p.s. there's still a raging debate on the f*** word going on in the forum.
Thanks to all who expounded so eloquently on the f*** word, especially Jay, who wrote a Master's thesis on the topic in my comments section. This is for you Jay: u*********.
